GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Downloads:  22910
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

0.1 (June 10, 2010)
- First release.

 Beautiful... but

This is more a complaint with many new themes, but it would be nice if they didn't all depend on GIT/SVN/etc. versions of theme engines. Not everyone uses Ubuntu where the developers are happy to push out testing grade packages to their users. It's a little limiting to users like myself who use distros like Gentoo wear stability is paramount.

Otherwise, great work on this theme. One of the better ones I've seen on here in quite some time.

I agree 100%. I run Debian Testing and have to use git's murrine to run at least half of the GTK themes here - it's not so much gnome-look.org as ubuntu-look.org. Why Ubuntu want to enforce a lot of unstable software on their users is beyond me.

it is beacause it is perfectly stable. Never had a single issue with ubuntu's default murrine engine so far..

A beautifully clean theme - I'm running it right now. (However I have to echo johnisevil's point.)

For Gentoo users to get the equinox engine you have to add the wirelay overlay through layman.

Your theme will be set as default for GNOME on the next release of Frugalware (1.4 Nexon) :)
