Description:

The idea for this theme appeared after I started modifying the Aurora Aqua theme for personal use. Then I realised I wanted to change many other things in the code of the theme, added some details, used other engines... And when I noticed what I was doing, I had a new theme in my hands. So here it is. The Glow GTK theme is mainly based in Aurora, but it also requires the Clearlooks engine to work. Please let me know of any suggestion, critic, bug or whatever you wish to say. I hope you enjoy this new Glow.

Glow is actually a set of several themes, with 8 variations: Cinder (grey); Fire (red); Flower (pink); Grass (green); Ice (silver blue); Lava (darker orange); Sand (orange); and Water (blue). Each of these variations has two designs, light and dark. I'm still trying to test if especially the dark versions work well in all apps. The usual individual tricks you know from other dark themes may still apply. Let me know how it can be improved.

NOTE
If you're using the GNOME panel, please pick the pixmap I'm providing for the panels as their background, on the panel properties, if you want your inactive buttons on the tasklist to become invisible. The Xfce users have an easy to enable similar function at the Xfce4-panel's tasklist properties.

If you want to replace the panel's background with another pixmap or with a transparency, please comment the correspondent line in the Panel.rc file, using a hash sign, like this:

#bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "panel.png"

Important:
This theme is not a finished, definitive work. As always, there might be some aspects to change and improve. Therefore, and in the spirit of what was said above in this description, if you feel you have to vote this theme down, please let me know why, in order that we can work on this theme in a constructive way. Thanks in advance.

Also many thanks to ochosi and islington for the window decoration themes they created. The links to their work are now being provided below. Thanks to Ayoli for once more helping me out with the theme's code.

On the screenshots, I'm using the Eikon icon theme, which is a personal icon collection with several works found across the Web that I've been maintaining for myself, and that after several requires I decided to share in non-official releases.

To get the most recent updates to Eikon, now on its second generation, please check this website: http://drop.io/fmrbpensador




Changelog:

0.1.0 - 6 colour variants and 2 designs;
0.1.1 - Fixed the tab colour issue on the dark themes;
0.1.2 - Two more colour variants;
0.1.3 - Brightened up the colours of the scrollbars on the darker versions, and as for the inactive selected areas, they're now dark grey, without any coloured influence;
0.1.4 - Fixed Gedit's left pane bug (corrected the panel.rc file to the effect - solution found at the GNOME colors project code); changed the size of the large toolbar icons to 24 pixels; added a pixmap as a background to the panels;
0.1.5 - Removed the dark limits of the panel's pixmap;

1.0.0 - Metacity versions available, both for the light and the dark variants of Glow;
1.0.1 - Solved the right-click context menus bug; reduced the size of arrows; changed the engine of the menus to Clearlooks; increased the saturation of the scrollbars;
1.0.2 - Changed the panels' engine back to Aurora, with a smoother pixmap as the background;
1.0.3 - Changed the treeview's engine and also the menus to Murrine (with the Clearlooks substyle); brighter and slightly larger scrollbars;
1.0.4 - Reverted all the Murrine widgets to Clearlooks because of issues with older versions of the Murrine engine; also learnt not to be too creative either.

Sorry, but what are the icons you are using? That seems to be the only thing I am missing. Looks great though!

Currently you can get them from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?mw1diuef9yx

Meanwhile, I'm changing and perfecting some of the icons, so I'll reupload them to a new location soon. When that is over, I'll post the link here and wherever it is necessary. Thanks for the message!

I found a bug. the "places" "system" seem to be in white text for me. screenshot (http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs229&d=08312&f=screenshot936.png)

Anyone else get this, or did I screw something up? loving the theme colors regardless...

the menu buttons are designed to be used with a menu bar on a themed panel (screenshot http://img67.imageshack.us/img67/8184/screenshot1aa0.png). if you want to use the main menu, you must change the values of "fg[NORMAL]" and "fg[ACTIVE]" from #fafafa to #000000 in the file ~/.themes/whichever glow theme you use/gtk-2.0/Panel.rc

i love the theme but i hate the huge arrows in various menus. i presume thats part of the aurira engine, or is there something that can be done about it?

I believe that would be an issue with the Aurora engine, but I'm trying to find out how to decrease the size of the arrows in the menus. I'm grateful for your message. I hope you keep enjoying Glow!

Hi there! Sorry for taking so long to answer. I have been quite busy, unfortunately. Lots of stuff to deal with at the same time. As for my font configuration, I followed this post on the Ubuntuforums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2944534&postcount=4

It should be pretty straightforward, but if you need some more advice or explanation, please ask.

To change the size of icons, please open the theme's gtkrc file and look at a line saying "gtk-icon-sizes". It's likely you will achieve the effect you desired if you change the "gtk-large-toolbar" parameter from 16,16 to 24,24 or other value you wish.


there is sure to be juicy information on the previous pages, you should always check them out.

I think i would probably use your theme if there was a good emerald theme for it. the one that guy provided just isn't good enough i dont think. I really like the theme but I dont use Xfce so i can't really use the native borders :(

actually you're updated emerald is good. I have decided that I don't like Glow as much as the Gnome-Color suite though. Aurora has a few annoyances, i didn't like the highlight appearance, and I didn't like the scrollbars as much as I thought I would. Good work on the emerald though.
