 Min/Max/Close buttons with 0.9

 
 by gateo on: Sep 20 2010
 
Score 50%

With 0.9, I see that the Minimize / Maximize and Close buttons on the window are just circles with no demarcations within them. As is they just a small O. Is that by design? Or did I mess up the reinstall?

Yeah, I followed the instructions and something didn't take. The font worked, the icon pack worked, the title bar worked, but the windows look like Windows 95 - which, of course, I detest with every fiber of my being.

I don't really know what to do. ;(

The uinstal instructions:

To remove the pack:
1. Open the terminal and cd to the extracted directory.
2. Run the command "sudo make uninstall"

The problem is that I have no idea where the extracted directory is. I didn't extract in manually.

So, right now I'm stuck with windows 95 looking theme because I can't override the Elegent Gnome pack

This uninstall instructions for one who installed the pack from sources, if you installed it from PPA, so they aren't for you.

If you want to completely remove the pack, you should open elegant gnome app and "Restore the previous settings" and then remove the elegant-gnome-mint package using your package manager.

I figured out why it wasn't uninstalling. The dialog box asking me to "ok" the action was popping up in the background and so I didn't see it.

I'm retarded, and apologize.

I wish I could have gotten it to work. For some reason the Murrine engine is not working for me.

Sorry.

Actually, As i saw on the screenshot, the engine works fine for you. Open the appearance settings and make sure that Elegant GTK is choosen, then go to Colors tab and make sure that the "Reset the Defaults" button is inactive, but if it's active - press it.

The problem is the old Murrine engine on your machine. So it looks like you was not really attentive while read the requirements for the theme :)

What distro do you got?

Try to run in terminal:

and see if there will be any output.

The icons in Elegant GNOME is based on AwOken, but they are not the same. And actually if you will use the original AwOken icons with the Elegant GNOME application, some parts of it will not work.

 Amazing theme just one problem

 
 by 5nak3 on: Sep 21 2010
 
Score 50%

Firstly, I want to start off by saying this is really a great theme.

The first dark theme which I found I could use on a long term basis.

However I do have one problem. The text does not always show up correctly within the theme making certain parts of the OS unreadable.

In the first screen shot you will see a standard Pidgin window, if you look at the red arrows from top to bottom you will see

1) The text on the bar notifying me about an email is almost white in colour making it very difficult to see what the text is saying.

2 + 3) Within the buddy list idle contacts are a grey colour almost the same as the background colour of the pidgin window again meaning it is difficult to tell who is online.

http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/3622/screenshotdc.png


Apart from pidgin, the other place I found text unreadable was within the Nvidia-settings application, in this case it was again white text on a white background.

http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/7672/screenshot1hm.png

As I said at the start I think this is a great theme, and is really useful when working late at night where I find a dark theme to be much easier for me to look at over a long period. However small problems like the above two are keeping me away from making this my default long term theme.

Hope you continue the good work on this theme.

1. About the piding's new main notification, this is known issue.
2. About the Pidgin's buddy list, run the Elegant GNOME app and choose the "Help" menu entry.
3. About the nvidia-settigs, looks like an application's issue, and i'm not shure if it's possible to fix, but i'll check.

I was pretty sure that the pidgin email notification was a known issue, but instead of trawling through many pages of comments I thought to post it anyway.

As for the pidgin theme, indeed installing it worked a charm. I am a bit unsure as to why it wasn't installed by default...but nonetheless it works now.

Finally, the nvidia settings bug, the licence agreement for overclocking has to be accepted before proceeding, I've been doing so since Karmic, so it is not a case of *needing* to read that text, however in the interest of theme improvement I pointed out what I found in case there was something you could do.
