Aurora Gtk Engine

Link:  http://
Downloads:  285368
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

 Aurora Theme Hangs Nautilus

 by chiron on: Jul 11 2009

I've found that using the Aurora theme to draw progress bars seems to cause nautilus to hang on the 'File Operations' dialogue while the progress bar is cylon-ing.

Here is a gdb backtrace of a hung nautilus using an Aurora-based theme:

(gdb) backtrace
#0 0xb7900856 in cairo_move_to () from /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2
#1 0xb6cf5f78 in ?? () from /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libaurora.so

widget=0x973f208, detail=0xb7d778c2 "bar", x=2, y=1, width=2, height=-1)

#6 0xb7d54985 in gtk_progress_realize (widget=0x973f208) at

I don't have debugging symbols for the Aurora theme, so if you can't reproduce the bug, let me know and I'll try to build Aurora from scratch to get a better backtrace.

Will ECHM still continue working on this? This is such a great project. Murrine is getting the attention because of the development it's getting. To be honest, I prefer this over any engine.

Does anyone want to contribute to developing this? I'm willing to if I only have a mentor.

Just made Shiki-Aurora out of this engine http://h.imagehost.org/view/0989/Screenshot

This is offtopic but how can I make the scrollbars thinner? Something as thick as clearlooks' would be nice

Thanks. I found the answer here http://live.gnome.org/GnomeArt/Tutorials/GtkThemes

Apparently, it's not an engine thing

I am going to take making Aurora themes seriously. However, I do not have resources other than other Aurora theme gtkrc's.

Where else could I learn about making themes on Aurora? Where can I find all engine options and other relevant information? =)
