Description:

VERSION 1.4.1
It has come to my attention that some older versions of the pixmap engine (like the one found in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx) have a bug that causes severe visual glitches when transparency is used in menubars. If your menubars and panel indicators are messed up, go to the Fixes page of the Orta Settings Manager and check the option "Select this if your menus and panel have visual glitches". This will also remove transparency from the Gnome Menu Bar applet, so if you use this applet with the flat panel option to make the panel transparent, you are out of luck.


INSTALLATION :

Ubuntu PPA :

Please make absolutely sure you have removed any previous instances of the theme before installing via ppa.

To add the ppa and install the theme and the settings manager, type this on a terminal :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install orta-theme

To install the emerald decorators :

sudo apt-get install orta-emerald-decorators

To install the Xfwm4 decorators :

sudo apt-get install orta-xfwm4-decorators

You can find the Orta Settings Manager under the Preferences category of your Main Menu.

Manual Installation :

Extract the extractme.tar.gz archive that you find inside the zip, to a folder of your choosing. Inside, you will find the theme (Orta.tar.gz) and additional decorators (Orta-Squared.tar.gz and Orta-Old.tar.gz) along with some folders. First, right click on OrtaSettingsManager.py and make sure that the "Allow executing file as program" option is checked. Run it and press the uninstall button to remove any old versions of Orta from your system. You can install the theme and decorators manually by dragging and dropping them to the Gnome Appearance Preferences window, or you can use the installer on the Orta Settings Manager (recommended if you want to install for all users including root). Now you can go through the various tabs of the Settings Manager and setup the theme according to your preferences. When you are done click the save button. Make sure you select another theme on the Appearance Preferences dialog that pops up, and then go back to Orta in order to apply your changes.

Leave the orta folder alone, it includes the Orta Settings Manager files .

Inside the Chromium folder, you will find a Chromium theme and different sizes of scrollbars to install.

Inside the Awn folder you will find an Avant Window Navigator lucido style. There are also 5 emerald themes inside the emerald folder.

LICENCE :

The pixmaps are licensed under the Creative Commons non commercial share alike license, and the code under GPL v3. I've also included the original xcf sources of the pixmaps so that anyone can easily modify the theme to his/hers preferences.




Changelog:

Fixes:

- Synaptic fix for gtk2-engines-pixbuf version 2.20 and older.

- Main menu icon size reverted to 22.

..Finally
It was a long waitin' ..like 5 years or so for such theme (and theme controls).

Now GIMP look like an expensive proprietary software ;)

..all in all this theme bring unity - just stick around 5 minutes and I get the idea that my Ubuntu look better not than OSX.

Well polished, nothing more, nothing less, well balanced and discreet, somewhat with an aristocratic air.

Nota bene.
Best of bread.

Ah, btw - is quite fast..


- 2 beers or not too beer ? - ..this is ..the question ?

Thanks mate, even though beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, comments like your really mean allot to themers like me.

I will have you know though that i am an anarchist, so if this truly looks aristocratic i will be forced to redesign :P.

One of the best themes I've seen recently. The only issues I'm having are a white menubar in nautilus and a strange-looking listview in thunderbird. I enabled the menubar fix for Pixbuf engine. I am using Debian Squeeze.

I would also like to see this at a point where scrollbar highlight color can be changed (preferably to something not gray).

Great work!

Thanks :)

Please provide my with your settings in the settings manager and a screenshot of your problem with nautilus.

The listview problem with thunderbird is something i can't replicate, so it's probably caused by your version of the app. Thunderbird and firefox aren't truly gtk apps, they just emulate the look, and newer versions do a better job at it.

As for the scrollbar highlight, it's not as easy to change as it sounds since it's a pixmap. Also, bear in mind, that every other dark gray highlight is also a pixmap, so a different color scrollbar highlight would look out of place, as it would only affect the scrollbar. Still, tell me what other colors you have in mind and i will experiment.

Thanks for putting up a PPA. That makes the life a little more easier. :)

In deluge, at the left most pane, there is a thick edge like thing which covers some portion of the text in the pane. I actually find this happening with quite a few other themes as well. If you are able to provide a fix, that would be great. Just a request.
