Aurora Gtk Engine


GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Aurora Gtk Engine

Link:  http://
Downloads:  285375
Submitted:  Apr 16 2007
Updated:  Jan 4 2009



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

• 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!


• Metacity theme no longer flickers with Compiz enabled
• 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

• Changed tab shading
• Focus glow reduced to 2 px

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

The engine will be available soon from my personal space at the build service. And it works pretty well in OpenSUSE 11.1

Please don't bother to ask the author about this. I guess he has more important things to do than supporting specific distributions.

 Some bugs...

Congratulations! It's very beautyful. Nevertheless, I am having trouble using it w/ Soundconverter and Synaptic. The first one freezes when I click on "convert". Memory usage goes really high and Compiz makes the window darker. It does not happen if I use default themes. Synaptic goes fine, but it seems Aurora does not "attach" to its window, which seems very ugly and poor, similar to the theme "Glider" (Please note I am also using "Aurora Leopard BSM", Ubuntu 8.10, 32bit).

I am having the exact same problem but with wicd-client: it hogs the cpu and starts using up all memory until I kill it. Does not happen with default engine. In my case it happens whenI click disconnect and then connect for a connection. Might be worth looking into...

 A job near perfection!!

As the title says, I like this work very much.. I loved it!, in just two words..

I'm not a big fan of compiz, beryl, metacity and all others stuffs like those.. I'm using xfce: it's perfect for my needs! And with just two click, installing Aurora (and Murrine, of course) theme engine and selecting my preferred theme from a list, I'm able to have my desktop just as I love it!
Simple and light.. as all the good things (my opinion, obviously!)

So, I just want to tell you that.. and thank you for sharing your work..
Go on with it, it will give you a lot of satisfaction!!
(And it will give to me, too!)

bye, man, good work!

(excuse if my english is not perfect as I wanted!)

I can't install this, I don't know how. I don't get all this ./configure stuff, step by step would be nice, and don't explain it to me as if I know what i'm doing. Explain as if I'm a child. THanks, I Like detail.
