Description:

A heavily modified version of the beautiful Aurora engine (1.4). Thanks to his author.

IMPORTANT! Since version 1.40, the file below contains only the engine source. You can download themes (both GTK and Metacity) from the second and third links :
- The five Equinox Evolution themes are new offical ones and will get some updates in the future. Only these themes are now included in the theme package available from the Launchpad PPA
- The original themes are no longer maintained (but still usable).

Engine installation

First of all, make sure you have installed the GTK+ library development files (libgtk2.0-dev on Debian/Ubuntu, gtk2-devel on Fedora) with your favourite package manager.

Then to compile the Equinox engine, extract the corresponding archive in your home folder. In the new directory, run the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation
make


On Fedora 64 bits (and perhaps other distribs), compilation don't work with the options above. You must run:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-animation


Finally, run this command as root:
make install


Themes installation

To install the themes, extract the content of the other archive in your ~/.themes.

You can easily change the colour used for selected items or tooltips in Appearance preferences.

To fix the issue with the text of selected menu items in Firefox and Thunderbird, copy the userChrome.css in both ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/ and ~/.thunderbird/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/

To use the Equinox Evolution theme with Chromium or Google Chrome, open the browser and drag the CRX file (provided in the themes archive) into the address bar. In applications options, don't forget to enable the display of Metacity borders.

Icon theme
A (still uncomplete) version of Faenza icon theme is now available. Follow the link a the bottom of this page.

 Menu item

 
 by weakhead on: Apr 4 2010
 
Score 50%

First of all - excellent engine!
I just started to make theme on it.

There is one thing that bothers me: light border around menu-item. It makes menu-item look strange when it's colour is not dark or light enough. Such border gives an illusion of vertical asymmetry.

It would be nice if themer could disable such border (selected menu-item would look similar to Aurora's).

Also, option to remove glass effect from progressbar would also be nice.

In gtkrc file, you can change the value of bg[ACTIVE] in the "theme-menu" style to modify the border color of the menus.

Concerning the progressbars, i will add a parameter in the next update of Equinox engine to disable the glassy effect.

Thanks.
I wasn't talking about menu itself, but menu-items. Equinox generates light borders around them, which are getting darker at the bottom of menu-item. Take a look at this screenshot:
http://omploader.org/vNDJrNA

It looks fine, when you use certain colour (like the one you used in Equinox Radiance) or very dark shade, like this one:

Look in the gtkrc file located in ~/.themes/Equinox/gtk-2.0 or /usr/share/themes/Equinox/gtk-2.0.

 toolbar borders

 
 by elkikin on: Apr 10 2010
 
Score 50%

This is very good, but it doesn't work well when I'm using gnome2-globalmenu, because of the borders surrounding the toolbars, on apps such as nautilus. I get a light border between the toolbar and the window titlebar.

Is there any way to disable toolbar borders?
