GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 73%

other:  Link
Downloads:  22909
Submitted:  Jun 10 2010
Updated:  Jul 20 2010


This style is inspired by eGTK by danrabbit. I have borrowed some parts to style Nautilus.


GTK engines required:
- The Murrine engine. (0.90.3+git20100323.)
- The latest Equinox engine - http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Equinox+Gtk+Engine?content=121881
- The Pixbuf/pixmap engine.

This style is currently designed around nautilus-elementary. I recommend that you install that. Otherwise you can use the included Zuki Classic Nautilus.

To correctly display the breadcrumbs in nautilus-elementary, go to Properties > Tweaks > Show like breadcrumbs and then restart Nautilus.

I recommend that you use a dock for this theme.

To open 7z files install the package p7zip.

To install this theme extract the included folders to:

/home/Your Username/.themes

or for all users:


Then go to System->Preferences->Appearance and select it from the list. (For some reason this may not work. Just select the parts manually if it don't work.)
Or change the parts manually by clicking on the Customize button to select your preferred window border, icon and cursor theme.

Other info

Walls are personal mods of this wallpaper: http://xnhan00.deviantart.com/art/Wp-Xanh-lam-114372730
Icons: AwOken
Font: Nimbus
Top menubar: gnome-globalmenu


This is an optional step for more experienced customizers. This step may be very hard for beginners!

As you can see in my preview image I've added a custom panel. Gnome-panel unfortunately can't handle real transpareny without making it all look like a frellwit. We can work around this by embedding some graphics on our wallpaper, making it look like real transparency.
First of all, make sure you are using "Zuki Dark's" controls and widgets.

For this to work you need to have GIMP installed.
Ubuntu users - Open a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install gimp.
You also need a GIMP plugin call Liquid Rescale: sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry
Other users - http://liquidrescale.wikidot.com/en:download-page-linux

### THE IMAGE ###

1. Locate the panel.png file in the archive.

2. Open the PNG-file in GIMP.

3. Go to Layer > Liquid Rescale.

4. Enter your screen width in the Width area and then resize the image.
(The "chain" icon next to the values needs to be "open". If it's locked, just click on it. It should be open by default though.)

5. Press CTRL+A (or Select > All.) Copy the image and paste it on your wallpaper of choice.
Important: Your wallpaper must have the same width and height as your desktop resolution.

6. Move the pasted layer to the top and then save your new wallpaper as whatever.png.

### THE PANEL ###

(Make sure your panel is set to 24px in height.)

1. Go to the directory where you installed the theme (Probably /home/username/.themes/Zuki Dark/)
Open the panel.rc file.

2. Put a # in front of bg_pixmap[NORMAL] so it will look like this:
#bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "/Panel/panel-bg.png" # Disable for normal panel backgrounds.
Then save the document.

3. Rightclick on your panel and select properties. Go to the Background tab and select Solid color. Move the Style slider all the way to the left.

4. And you're done! Enjoy your fake transparent panel.


0.3.3 (July 20, 2010)
- New pixmap scrollbars very similar to elementary.
- New panel option for experienced customizers.
- Removed the color options to reduce the size so I can upload it as a zip file again. Colors can easily be changed in the Gnome Appearance Settings.

0.3.2 (June 23, 2010)
- Added another hover to the scrollbar.
- Rounded the progressbars.
- Re-packaged everything into a 7zip file because the normal zip file became too big for gnome-look.
- Emerald theme included.

0.3.1 (June 14, 2010)
- Fixed panel applet text color in the dark styles.

0.3 (June 14, 2010)
- XFCE desktop icon textstyle removed.
- New dark style included with dark panel and window borders.
- Selected menu text now changes to white when hovered.
- Minor fixes and cleanup.

0.2.2 (June 12, 2010)
- Added a version for classic Nautilus users. The same version does not any longer require the Equinox engine.

0.2.1 (June 12, 2010)
- New color schemes. Green and pink.
- Theme files and info files included for easier theme installation.

0.2 (June 11, 2010)
- Some cleaning done
- Breadcrumbs added to Nautilus
- Added the pixmap slider from eGTK to Nautilus
- New panel code based on the one from eGTK.
- Minor fixes

Understated, elegant and simply beautiful.

Thank you for sharing your work.

The only thing that not convinces me is the black text on prelight, anyway you did a great job.

This is so good. The screenshots don't do it justice - you have to use it for a while to appreciate the nice touches

Not too sure about the metacity buttons. The outline looks a bit soft

 Archive is packed correctly

 by cyberpatrol on: Jun 23 2010

The downloaded 7z archive can't be extracted correctly. Every file is extracted into the directory where the archive is saved, 7z asks if several files shall be overwritten and the extracted Zuki* directories are empty. So you should rebuild the archive and probably use one of the more common archive formats .tar.gz, .tar.bz2 or .tar.xz instead of 7z.

The subject should of course mean: "Archive is not packed correctly"

The archive works fine for me. Are you sure you have p7zip installed? And what program do you use to extract compressed files with?

Unfortunately I can't pack it in any of the other formats because of the 750KB size limitation here on gnome-look. The 7z file is 128KB while the other formats gets up to 800-2000KB.

I have p7zip 9.04 installed and extract it with `7z e <archive name>`.
Probably this issue is why this archive is so extremely small compared to the other archive formats due to missing file informations. ;-)

Not sure why the compression is so much better in 7zip, but perhaps that may have something to do with it. :P

Anyways. Try using a GUI for this, like file-roller for example.

Use 7zip x to extract with directories from the command line

Or if you have file-roller just double click on it or rightclick and choose extract here.


If the file size is an issue maybe offer the classic/nautilus elementary versions as separate downloads. Many themes seem to have more than one download on the same page

With 7z x (that really makes sense, two parameters for extraction) and with file-roller it can be extracted, but only with these.

With squeeze the archive can't be opened and xarchive shows two files (.7z and 9) both with 0 byte and the first one with Time="Time" and Date="Date" and the second one with Time="e".

Thanks for the help, anyway.

 Theme doesn't work in Xfce

 by cyberpatrol on: Jun 23 2010

Now that I got it installed, I've got the problem that the theme doesn't work in Xfce.

The file permissions are set correctly and I've installed gtk-engine-equinox 1.20, gtk-engine-murrine 0.90.3 and gtk-engine-pixbuf 0.1.0. But every theme look like the ugly Windows 95. Of course I also restarted X.

Am I missing something or doesn't it work with Xfce?

Sounds like an engine problem.
Is it Murrine 0.90.3+git20100323 you have installed? Try to install the latest murrine-git version otherwise.

Thanks for the help. With murrine-git it's working.

Indeed one of most beautiful themes I've seen. Only the gray in the window background and the menus could be a shade lighter for my taste. And some more colors like e.g. orange, wine-red or the like would be nice. :-)
