Description:

Latest Update :
28/10/2010 v1.6.0 . This update should have come six months ago, unfortunately at that time i had abandoned Gnome in favor of the more modern (and buggy as i was about to find out) KDE. Anyway, this is mainly a bug fix release, so many long standing problems should now be fixed.

Btw, there is a bug with the gtk-window-decorator that sometimes causes the Azel New menu button to be rendered incorrectly, i am aware of it but can't do much about it.

Description :
This theme looks best with the Faenza-Dark icon theme. It's also designed to work with or without the globalmenu hack (see instructions).

Instructions :

  • Extract the archive, go to the gtk folder and install Azel, Azel Original and Azel New through the theme manager.

  • If you prefer the gnome standard button placement use the Azel window border. If you prefer buttons on the left (as in the screenshot) use the Azel Original window border and go to the next step. The Azel New decorator works as well for both layouts.

  • If you have selected the Azel Original window border , open gconf-editor, go to apps->metacity-> general and change the button_layout to
    close,maximize,minimize:menu .

  • If you are using compiz , open gconf-editor, go to apps->gwd and set metacity_theme_opacity to 1 . Then, go to apps->compiz->plugins->decoration->allscreens->options
    and set shadow_opacity to 0.85 , shadow_radius to 8.5 , shadow_x_offset to 0 and shadow_y_offset to 4 .


  • If you prefer emerald to metacity/gtk-window-decorator , go to the emerald folder and install the themes . You can also look here http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=78145 for decorators that have the buttons on the right side.


  • If you are using globalmenu, go to your themes directory and browse inside Azel/gtk-2.0/. Open the file gtkrc and scroll down near the bottom till you find the line 'include "tweaks-no-globalmenu.rc"' (without the quotes). Comment out (put a # symbol in front of) that line, uncomment (remove the # from) the '#include "tweaks-globalmenu.rc" line and reload the theme.


  • If you prefer the old silver panel, go to your themes directory and browse inside Azel/gtk-2.0/. Open the file gtkrc and scroll down near the bottom till you find the line 'include "panelblack.rc"' (without the quotes). Comment out (put a # symbol in front of) that line, uncomment (remove the # from) the '#include "panel.rc"' line and reload the theme.


  • If you are using Ubuntu Karmic x64 and have problems with thunar and huge toolbars, use the included deb or follow the included instructions to compile a fixed version yourself.


  • If you are using firefox just use Midori :P . Just kidding ;) . Go to the firefox folder and into ff2 if you are using firefox2 or ff3 for firefox3. In case you are using the hidemenubar extension, there is also the Azel-no-menubar theme included.


  • If you are using Mplayer , extract the contents of the Azel-mplayer archive into ~/.mplayer/skins .



  • Changelog:

  • Panel code rewritten from scratch.

  • Default button states added.

  • Shadow margins fixed.

  • Text color on progressbars fixed.

  • Better progressbars in treeviews.

  • Firefox no longer needs a skin.

  • Chromium frame color fixed.

  • Changed default icons to Faenza-Dark.

  • Support for Nautilus-Elementary.

    Nice theme, thanks!

    I just want to know if it is possible to change color of the background of the side pane of nautilus by myself?

    please refer to the screenshot http://picasaweb.google.com/chunchengch/GTKThemes/photo#5192639897114028674

    The clock applet has been rewritten in the newer version of gnome that is included in Hardy, i will fix this soon.

    As for the Nautilus side pane, what color would you want it to be ?

    Personally, I prefer color #8C8C8C because white color is too shinning to stare for long time.

    Sorry for the late reply , i was busy preparing an update. Here is what you can do :
    style "nautilus-sidebar"
    {
    base[NORMAL] = "#8C8C8C"
    }

    widget_class "NautilusNavigationWindow.GtkTable.NautilusHorizontalSplitter.NautilusSidePane.GtkNotebook.*" style "nautilus-sidebar"

    Place this inside your gtkrc, preferably after the lines starting with include near the end of the file.

    I place these lines at the bottom of file gtkrc (after include...), and then re-select this theme from theme manager, but it does not work, any idea? thanks!

    Sorry, you are right, i should have tested this before replying to you. This should work though :

    style "nautilus-sidebar"
    {
    GtkTreeView::even_row_color = "#8C8C8C"
    }

    widget_class "NautilusNavigationWindow.GtkTable.NautilusHorizontalSplitter.NautilusSidePane.GtkNotebook.*" style "nautilus-sidebar"

    Yes, this time i did test it :P

     Grayer version?

     
     by someguydude on: Apr 27 2008

    Is there any way to get a version of this that isn't quite SO bright? I love it all over, but if it could, say, sit around the brightness level of TechniX that would save my eyes immensely.

    I try to test my themes on color calibrated monitors before releasing. Are you sure that your monitor brightness isn't set too high ?

    With that said, tastes differ and what is easy on the eye for me might be tiring to you. The theme in its current form needs allot of work to change colors : Everything is a pixmap and i can't use transparent pixmaps to make the colors user selectable because the full window gradient overlaps with the toolbar gradient. I was thinking of removing the gradient and releasing a lighter version of the theme that would also allow the user to change the coloring , but i don't know if i will make it till my army service starts.

    I'm on a notebook and it is pretty darn bright at the moment with the brightness up at normal setting. Under that, though, and text gets tricky to read.

    Look at TechniX just for an idea of how "gray" something can be and still perfectly readable. Azel is an excellent theme, but it's kinda bright white and makes for difficult eyestrain when staring for too long.

    I've seen Technix , i watch all of Robs works as he is probably the best theme artist around here. The thing is, every theme is based on a concept and Azel was going to be a silver/black theme from the start. I wanted to create something that would look different , and themes like that usually don't please everyone (with the exception of SlicknesS ;) ) . That doesn't mean i am going to ignore feedback or requests , but if i change Azel's color scheme i might satisfy you and dissatisfy others . If Azel could support color adjustments by the user , everyone would be happy but for reasons i explained in my previous reply to you , i would have to change other things (that are part of the Azel look) as well in order to make it happen. What i had in mind to solve all this was to create a similar theme to Azel , that would be less complicated, but faster and would support color adjustments by the user so everyone could be happy. I still want to go ahead with this but i don't know if i will make it in time. In 10 days i have to go away for a 1 year (obligatory in my country ...) military service. So as you can see the problem isn't one of will , but of time. I still might make it though , so stop by gnome look from time to time in the next 10 days.

    Unfortunately , your creativity goes to waste here, gnome-look doesn't have an ermmmm, poems section . You could try submitting your literature here http://www.deviantart.com , they have a very nice poetry section.

    This sounds like a problem with the pixmap engine and panel transparency (meaning i can't fix it). Check with other pixmap themes to confirm this.
    You could use compiz for transparency to overcome this issue.

    I also think the toolbar in nautilus could be smaller. Any ways to fix this?

    My theme doesn't change at all the size of the Nautilus toolbar, it's big enough already :P . You could go to appearance preferences on the Interface tab and select Icons only view or you completely hie the toolbar (most users do just that).

    Thanks a lot for the show only icons tip! I just messed around in wiew in nautius and prefs there. (Can't understand why the choice to show icons isn't there as well...)

    It is supposed to be a global gnome option but some apps like Epiphany have their own setting.

    Well, I took a black cross from another theme, and overwritten the red cross in the black and white icon-theme, so now it's good :)
