Description:

This theme is aimed for people who just want a simple, fast and native interface with many color options. It's also designed with new linux users in mind, by providing simple, thorough instructions. A matching set of Icons, Wallpapers, GDM themes and Usplash screens can also be downloaded separately.

There are four color variations (Orange, Blue, Green, Red) and TWO designs; light and dark. You can create even more color-schemes through GNOME's appearance preferences, using the included tango palette for color suggestions!

This theme is designed for Ubuntu Hardy/Gnome 2.22. It will not work in earlier versions.

Important, must read or clowns will eat you:
- Inside the gtkrc files there are extensive line-by-line instructions and tips for customizing most aspects of the theme!

- GNOME-Colors are set as the default icons for the themes. Be sure to download them to get the full experience!

- This theme uses gradient panel backgrounds by default. If you plan to use Transparent/Custom panels, please disable my panels by editing either the gtkrc or panel.rc files like the included instructions tell you to.

- My X-Colors metacity borders are not selected by default, due to their non-conservative nature. You can choose them in gnome's appearance preferences if you wish to use them.

- Some linux apps are not too friendly to dark themes yet. It's up to their developers to improve this. Keep this in mind when using any dark theme.

- If you want root/super user applications to be themed, you must type in a terminal:
sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root

- Feel free to try Murrine-Colors or Nodoka-Colors for alternate takes on this theme.

Please:
If you must vote down, or if there is something you dislike, leave a comment so I can improve it!




Changelog:

2.0 (09/12/08):
-Minor improvements.
-Minor improvements to metacities/emeralds.
-Now based on Shiki-Colors' newer gtkrc, for better instructions and easier modifications.

 tooltip colour

 
 by mrigns on: Mar 18 2008
 
Score 50%

I think the colour of the tooltip should be changed to match the colour of the ubuntulooks-human and the blue vanilla clearlooks theme.

it's:

background: #F5F5B5
text: #FFFFFF

this way contrast is increased and it's way more easier to read.

speaking of contrast.

I think the orange in the menues should be darker, or the text black instead of white.

otherwise your eyes get tired because of the low contrast.

All in all your doing a great job, I'll definitely follow the development of the theme. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the input, the reason for the tooltip and menu colors is that the ubuntu-looks theme is no longer the default theme for ubuntu (starting with hardy, as far as i know). I'm now using human-murrine's colors, but you're right.. that theme appears to have two separate colors for tooltips, so i'll have to look into it. as for the menus, since the murrine engine renders menu items a bit diferently, i might have to change it a little so it looks better in clearlooks. if there are no more changes to the human-murrine theme, i should be able to work everything out by next release. again, thanks for the suggestions.

Don't get me started on human-murrine :D

It's a good idea to use murrine, it's fresh, light and looks really modern.

But the theme which is in hardy isn't very user friendly.

its greatest flaw imho is that there isn't much of a difference between active and inactive apps in the task list of gnome-panel.

the difference in colour is so minimal that I'm really wondering how the frell that could have happend. I mean, if they are to use it as the default theme someone should have noticed.

I guess they still have time to fix it before release... meanwhile, i've uploaded new menu items, so hopefully it looks better now. as for the tooltips, I decided to leave them as is for now.. but i added the option to change their color through the appearances preferences (dark theme was missing it).

Great theme, but I don't quite understand the license... it's free... but beer is never free! =P

I see :p

And again, nice theme!! This should seriously be considered as the default for... any distribution really! Ubuntu could use the orange one, and I suppose openSuSE or RedHat, or whatever could just swap new colours in!

also, I wonder if anyone knows the name of file-roller (archive manager)'s location bar widget.. since it uses non-standard toolbars, I need that name to make a workaround.

 Excellent work....

Using Ubuntu I use orange version but I also like green version. Metacity theme matchs perfectly with this theme.
I think this could be the default theme for different distro using Gnome as DM.
I'm curious to see this theme with the new clearlooks engine in Hardy.
Thanks for your work.

I'm glad you like it, I always try to maintain a "default" look to it, since it's less distracting while still being visually appealing.

lol, same as the other thread:
i have no plans for more colors, but you can make one in about 10 seconds.

1. Open appearance preferences.
2. Select any of my themes.
3. Click customize > colors
4. Change Selected items to dark brown (or other color)
5. Change Tooltips to light brown (or other color)
6. ??????
7. PROFIT!!!
