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.

 Broken

Something is wrong, I have the aurora, murrine, and of course clearlooks engines installed correctly (I know that because I have used themes that use the engines properly before) When I load it up I get the panel pixmaps, and that is about it... the rest is default GTK gray ugliness...

Yep, same for me. Old 0.1.3 Version was working.

Using Aurora 1.4 (latest version I think) on Ubuntu Hardy and Murrine from distros repo.

Currenlty I'm stuck to the old version, but great theme anyway.

ya, I was wondering if I needed to update my engines or something, but as long as the murrine that came with ubuntu is the up to date version it should be fine, but it is not, from my own experience, if 1 little typo is in the gtkrc the whole thing breaks... maybe there is one in the new version?

Everything is working fine on my PC. I'm clueless for now.

Glow is a set of 16 themes. Are all of them broken on your side? If not, which is? I downloaded the uploaded version of the themes myself, and they're loading fine. I'm trying to find out what is wrong.

Oh, well, I'm using a SVN version of Murrine. Dunno if that would be the issue. I didn't insert any new feature in the code. Will revert to the outdated version of Ubuntu's repos to check it out...

OK, the issue is with the old version of the Murrine engine which is on the repos. I guess some new substyle isn't there or something. Oh well. Will have to change some widgets from Murrine to Clearlooks. A shame.

Sorry for that. Repos with old stuff are frustrating.

don't get rid of murrine, just remove

sliderstyle
colorize_scrollbar

I didn't look in the rc, I am just guessing that you are using those, because those are not yet functioning on normal murrine... and when I tried to use them in a rc I was editing, it broke, just like this one.

The bug should now be solved. Sorry for this. I'm pretty irritated myself.

Hi there! Thanks for the message!

To be honest, I don't know (yet) how to do that, or whether it is possible, but it does sound like a nice idea. I'll try to read more about it, if I find any useful information.

Thanks for the message.

I explained how to take care of it at the description of the theme. Please read it.

I'll try to find out a better solution, as I also said in a previous message, right here at the comment box.

Hi,
great theme!
I found a little bug in metacity theme: try to look top corners when the window is over a white\gray background, i think there aren't some pixels.
Sorry for my english.. thanks for your work! :)

Yes indeed. It's actually due to the fact Metacity doesn't allow anti-aliasing of round borders yet. I might eventually modify the Metacity theme in order to include pixmaps instead of trusting in its own rendering abilities. Thanks for your message.
