Description:

Description:

The Aurora Gtk Engine themes all common Gtk widgets to provide an attractive, complete and consistent look for Gtk applications.

Engine options

• menubarstyle = 1 # 0 = flat, 1 = gradient, 2 = sunken
• curvature = 5 #default widget curvature
• arrowsize = 1 # controls combo_arrow circle size. Diameter set by (11 + 2 * arrowsize)
• old_arrowstyle = FALSE #set to TRUE for original circled arrows (same as arrows in sorted tree columns)
• animation = TRUE # FALSE = disabled, TRUE = enabled (also needs to be compiled with animation support to work)

Included theme uses configurable colours and can be adjusted in Theme Preferences under GNOME.

Thanks to all of you who have provided feedback so far, it has helped catch many things that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. And as always feedback is appreciated.


Known Issues:
• Ugly widgets in: OpenOffice, Java applications
∘ Unfortunately I can't really do anything here to make them look better. I can only hope that their emulation of Gtk themes will improve over time

Installation:
• Gtk 2.12+ is required for this engine
• Must have basic development packages installed for your distribution as well as Gtk2 development package in order to build engine
• Includes both the gtkRc theme, and the Gtk engine


To install the theme engine extract it to somewhere convenient and in that directory,
run: "./configure --prefix=/usr" then "make"
For animation support add "-enable-animation" when running "./configure"
Then as a root user "make install".

Then install the gtkrc theme by extracting to your ~/.themes directory or through the Appearance application.

To change your current theme to Aurora (under GNOME) open up the Appearance application (usually somewhere under System > Preferences) click the Customize button and under the controls tab select the theme you want.

Finally thanks to everyone along the line who have worked on the clearlooks and clearlooks based engines as without their work this engine would not exist.

Now go download and enjoy!




Changelog:

1.5.1
• Metacity theme no longer flickers with Compiz enabled
1.5
NEW/REDISGNED
• New list view headers
• Borderless notebook support (Gedit is one of the few applications that uses this)
• Included an updated version of the Blended metacity theme to better match the look of Aurora

CHANGES
• Changed tab shading
• Focus glow reduced to 2 px

FIXES/ENHANCEMENTS
• Removed double border in Calendars
• Centered menu separators
• Firefox button backgrounds
• Allowed enginge params on per widget basis
• Many, many small tweaks and fixes

 wrongly detecs gtk

 
 by itix on: Dec 31 2008

The compiler (or rather the configure script) wrongly says that my GTK version is sub-2.10. It is 2.14 so I think the configure script is a bit buggy.

Well, you obviously didn't check out the picture I posted which contained exactly the commands I used for finding my GTK-version;

dpkg --list libgtk2.0-0 | grep ii

Now, how could I possibly run this command without having GTK+ 2 installed ;)

Thank you for the kind intent though.

SOLVED
i actually overlooked the fact that i need gtk2-devel package for compiling gtk2 stuff - install it and engine compiles wonderfully.

Ubuntu does not have that package, but it has one called libgtk2.0-dev. This however needed ten tons of dependencies. I'm really sorry, but I'm not that desperate for the aurora gtk-engine that I'll install 50 MBs worth of files.

Great work! Do you will make "small" and "doble rounds" versions of the new blended metacity? Pls at least work on the small version... the standard buttons are TOO large and looks crappy :S

Good work! =D

As it seems there is interest in this, I'll do a separate release of the Metacity theme with the same variations I have for Blended.

 Not playing well with compiz

unfortunately i have found out that theme (great looking never the less) doesn't play well with compiz. Window title bars flickering quite often. When i turn compiz off everything is back to normal.

There is a solution to this problem, but it comes with two disadvantages. One, button order would no longer be configurable. And two, there would be no spacing between the buttons. I'll give it a try and see how it turns out, as yes flickering window title borders can get annoying pretty quickly.

Thanks for that piece of information. I was able to find the offending change between Blended and my recent changes. The source of the problem was not what I expected. For some reason the problem was a couple semi-transparent lines drawn over the button background gradient(to give a stronger shadow). Changing those lines to be opaque ended the flickering.

 Metacity flicker??

 
 by MikeDK on: Jan 4 2009
 
Score 50%

that has nothing to do with the metacity-theme its the nvidia-driver as of version 173, 180.06 dosnt do this it, running 180.06 here, and i had the same problem with metacity-flicker but only on pixmap drawn things, such as human theme in ubuntu and human metacity.
The 96. nvidia driver should'nt do it, but not sure as i havent tryed that driver yet to check the problem

Kind Regards MikeDK

 Aurora-Midnight

Any plans to include the Aurora midnight gtkrc in the next 1.5 release? I noticed that it is not available in the 1.5.1 download.
Oh, and is it just my new nvidia driver, or does 1.5 render *much* faster than 1.4?
