GTK 2.x Theme/Style

This is a port of the imetal OSX theme by AndyBlac . It uses the pixbuf engine so it's a little slow, but i couldn't make an accurate port without it.

Now that Azel is finaly completed and released, i managed to update imetal too ... There is only one theme now, if you want to use globalmenu with it , just open the gtkrc file found inside the theme folder and change the line (it's near the end) :
include "Tweaks/tweaks.rc"
include "Tweaks/globalmenu-tweaks.rc"
and reload the theme.

In order to extract the archive , change the suffix to tar.gz .


v0.99 :
- Fixed a bug (introduced in v0.98) where the panel notifications are black.
- Network applet's wireless progressbars fixed.

v0.98 :
- Fixed a bug (introduced in v0.97) where empty lists had a blue color.
- Evolution vertical mail preview mode list headers fixed.
- Thunar home toolbar button is now properly skinned.

v0.97 :
- Tooltips color changed to blue.
- Some list header fixes.
- Banshee song tittle background fixed.

v0.96 :
- Now the same theme works with or without the globalmenu. Just change
include "Tweaks/tweaks.rc"
include "Tweaks/globalmenu-tweaks.rc"
if you are using the globalmenu applet and hack.
- Added shadows to arrows.
- Combobox and optionmenu now look completely the same.
- Spinbuttons comboboxes and optionmenus now have the same arrows for a more consistant look.
- Toolbuttons changed.
- Metacity themes now have allot less aliasing and wider left and right borders in order to make resising easier.
- The selected tab on a notebook is no longer taller than the rest.
- Panel buttons are now the same as the regular buttons.
- Changed some shadows (shadow out).
- Menubar menuitem selector changed.
- Panel menu icon size redused.
- Mplayer skin added.

v0.86 :
- Removed the clearlooks versions from the pack.
- Most of the tweaks for individual apps are now allot more specific in order to speed up the theme.
- Fixed a bug that caused the right side of Thunar address bar to become larger than the left when using certain icon themes.
- Changed the Thunar toolbar icons spacing.
- Gnumeric now looks as it should.
- gFTP now has full gradients.
- Fixed volume control sliders background color.
- Inkscape now has gradients. I still can't skin every Inkscape toolbar individualy (and i don't think it's possible) but if you hide one of the top 2 toolbars it should look ok.
- Changed the color of the rulers for the imetal-gradient version.
- Gnumeric, File Roller , Evolution and Synaptic non continuous gradient with imetal-gradient fixed.
- Epiphany has a round searchbox.
- Two new firefox skins with round adressboxes have been added.

v0.80 :
- Thunderbird skin added (a modification of Crossover X by riz).
- Fixed a bug where the panel sliders inherited the panel background.
- Fixed a bug where some scrollbars weren't drawn properly (mainly Gimp scrollbars).
- The Evolution New button now has a normal blue highlight instead of a grey/blue one.
- Evolution Task buttons changed from rounded to squared.
- Fixed a Nautilus bug with the toolbar and the non macmenu version.
- Fixed File Roller Toolbar for the non macmenu version.
- Changed the round addressbars.
- Included different rc files for toolbars with no text beneath icons. In order to use them, open the gtkrc file and
find the 'include "nautilus-tweaks.rc"' line near the end of the file. Change it to include "nautilus-tweaks-notext.rc" (only the macmenu version needs this change) and do the same for the 'include "epiphany-tweaks.rc"' line.

v0.76 :
- Evolution no longer looks like Silvester Stalone.
- Reduced Epiphany address bar height.
- Increased list header height.

v0.75 :
- Create Launcher no longer inherits the panel background.
- Epiphany address bar no longer contains another address bar.
- Epiphany Search the Web and Find textboxs are now rounded.
- Thunar toolbar buttons are now placed more symmetrically. They are nearer the left side of the window and have less space between them.
- Thunar adress bar height reduced, width increased.

v0.73 :
- Fixed a bug that caused the right side of the Thunar address bar (the visited locations drop down menu button) to look like the left side of the address bar after pressing it. The button now always looks like the round end of the address bar (even when pressed).
- Changed the Thunar address bar arrow icon (see 1st screenshot).
- Slight change to the panel background.

v0.72 :
- The menu bar applet and other panel applets that have a menubar now properly inherit the panel background.

v0.71 :
- Fixed some problems with the xfce panel and applets. It should now be fully skinned.

v0.70 :
- Removed stretching for the gradient to make the skin more speedy (IF YOUR MONITOR'S RESOLUTION IS GREATER THAN 1200 READ THE README FOR INSTRUCTIONS).
- Added metacity decorators (rounded and squared).
- Added macmenu applet with fake default menu for xfce.
- Improved shadows.
- Added panel buttons.
- Fixed the font configurator buttons.
- Changed the default background colors.
- Changed the notebook to have a more consistent look with the rest of the theme.
- Skinned the panel buttons.
- Made the round address boxes of Nautilus and Thunar exclusive to their toolbars (no round misshapen text entry dialogs anymore).
- Firefox download windows now have full gradients.
- Firefox skins are a little lighter (use less pixmaps).

v0.50 :
- Abandoned grey variant.
- Moved fully to pixbuf engine.
- Added gradients.
- Everything skin element is now a port of the osx version.
- New firefox skins (a regular one and one for use with the menubar hidden)
- New emerald theme.
- Added a modified version of the macmenu applet that displays a fake main menu (label) when there isn't another menu displayed on the panel.

v0.30 :
- This is the first version of the theme.
- Modified the Tish clearlooks theme by adding pixmap scrollbars panels and menubars.
- Created emerald and metacity decorations.

As this is a port, i can't choose a license myself. I've acquired permissions for every piece of work in this pack that isn't (or part of it isn't) mine. If you want to use code from anything in this pack, please feel free to do so. If you want to use pixmaps though, please contact AndyBlac, the original author of the theme for OSX to get permission first.

Forget my comment about the corrupted archive.

Some suggestions:
- we loose the history of the backward and forward buttons, could you add them?
- the tabs bar is not tall enough, tabs titles are very close to the edges in the bottom, make the bar a little bit higher would be better.

Thanks again for such a great theme.

Thanks for your work! It's just amazing!
The best skin I ever had...

Only one remark:
Regarding the firefox skin and the Thunderbird skin also (imetal gradient) there is a small problem with the elevator, a small space between the bar and the end of the screen but you can see what I mean here : http://img110.imageshack.us/img110/1319/firefoxgradientrj2.png

Also Is it possible for the next release to design a rounded adress bar for the firefox skin?
I know I'm asking a lot...
But anyway thanks for all

And as I upgrade to Ubuntu 7.10 and the new gnome version, I still have the same "problem"...
By the way do you have any idea regarding an Opera skin?
I'm still looking for a one who fit with your amazing work.

New to GNOME. Could ayone help me with installing it on. Does it contain the iconsets and Dock as well?

Ever thought of something as 'free operating system?' I hadn't!

First you'll have to extract the package. Next open it, click on "gtk" and copy the desired theme (folder) to .themes in your home directory (ctrl+h to show hidden files). If you want to use the emerald theme as well, drag it do .emerald in your home folder. Icons, cursor and such is described in the readme file. Hope that helps:)

 A few minor bugs

I always considered the original Mac themes vastly overrated, but your imetal theme is fantastic! Great colors and design (I never thought I'd ever say that about a greyish theme). I love it, especially combined with the Buuf icon set. However, there are 3 little bugs:

in Rhythmbox there's the possibility to rate a song. It's done by a 1 to 5 stars sytem. In imetal, these stars look like gibberish.

In Nautlius, when dragging something with the mouse from the folder pane into the tree view on the left side bar and hovering there over a potential drop target, the target doesn't get highlighted.

When navigating though the controls with the tab key (sending the focus to the next control), the control with the focus mostly doesn't get something like a frame or highlighted. Can be checked with Nautilus again: the only control visualizing the focus is the sidebar on the left side.

Apart from these: best theme ever!

 round and square

Some buttons are square while others are round, same for tabs, not good in my opinions.

It's a port and i wanted to be as faithful as possible to the original in respect to its author. Besides , i like the way the tabs are though i can't say the same for the buttons. This has more to do with the way some apps are written and the pixbuf engine itself and less with the buttons and i don't want to make even more per application fixes.
Anyway, thanks for your suggestions , i will keep them in mind for when i make something from scratch.

 Some wishes

 by Romu on: Dec 6 2007

Just tried the 0.86, and my wishes are:
- change the tooltip color, grey (tooltip) on grey (window) is not good enough, clear different colors would be better, a soft yellow perfect,
- make the system button wider, like the one of "blue" imetal would be great,
- make dialog button a little bit higher. To me it seems you made them wider in 0.86 and this is clearly better, higher and, maybe, less round would be better.
- is it possible to make the "color" tab active when you want to tune the theme?

- in your Firefox theme, could you create the back history and forward history buttons (just close to the back and forward buttons like in the default Firefox theme).

Thanks in advance

- I will change the tooltip color on the next release but i don't think yellow would fit well with the rest of the theme.

- System button ? Which button is that?

- I might add a little more height to the buttons but i won't reduce their roundness . It's not that i don't want to, i could change allot of things but since the theme is a port, i try to be as faithful to the original as i can.

- I don't think it's possible to use the color tabs with pixbuf themes but i will look in to it.

- Next release will probably have those buttons skined.
