Description:

Shiki-Colors mixes the elegance of a dark theme with the usability of a light theme, resulting in a hybrid theme. Shiki is designed to be fast and stable.

There is a Clearlooks version for out-of-the-box compatibility with most distros and a Murrine version for eyecandy and speed.

There are 7 color variations (Orange, Blue, Green, Purple, Red, Chocolate, Pink). A matching set of Icons, Wallpapers and GDM themes can also be downloaded separately from gnome-look or at the gnome-colors project page.

You can edit the theme's source (the gtkrc files) for further customization, which is all too easy due to the included instructions.

Must read or clowns will eat you:
* The Murrine version will only work with Murrine 0.90.3 or newer. Yes, you will need to upgrade unless you're using Ubuntu Jaunty.

* The borders are very thin, and titlebars/menubars are unified because of "LOL, ELEGANCE". If you have any difficulty resizing windows, try the included alternate metacity with thicker borders.

* In Ubuntu, for themes (installed through appearance preferences) to be able to theme applications in admin mode, you must type in a terminal:
sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root && sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root

Fedora users can get an installable package of Murrine 0.90.3 (x86) here until is not available in release section:
http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1529612/gtk-murrine-engine-0.90.3-1.fc12.i586.rpm

* In Ubuntu, you can use the official PPA repository for easy installation and upgrades. For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install shiki-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories. The packages are also available in Debian Sid.

* To fix minor Firefox 3 bugs in Shiki-Colors, install the Stylish add-on and go here (or install the included userChrome.css file following the instructions in README):
http://userstyles.org/styles/10822

* Visit the GNOME-Colors project page for bug reports, feature requests, SVN and more downloads:
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/

* Consider donating a small amount to the GNOME-Colors project if you wish to support it, or to show your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the "donate" button next to the download section.




Changelog:

4.6 (2009-09-25)
* Add support for Chromium's GTK theming.

4.5 (2009-08-03)
* Update Green, Pink, Orange and Red palettes for better contrast.
* Fix a minor Firefox urlbar color issue in green/orange variations.

4.4 (2009-07-14)
* Add new Pink (Illustrious) color variation.
* Add support for gdm-user-switch applet in Karmic.
* Fix panel matching in Dust-Murrine variant.
* Remove spaces in metacity names for easier RPM packaging. You might have to
remove the old metacity folders or run make uninstall from a previous version.

 Repository

This seems a very complete theme. You've got your gtk theme, the window borders, the GDM, the icons, wallpapers, even the usplash all covered.

But you still have to get them all separately.

And you still have to update them all independently and manually.

What I'd love to see (I've stuck this idea on Ubuntu brainstorm as well) would be if all of these could be put into an apt repository hosted by Gnome-look.org. The user subscribes to it and the current version of all the bits and bobs is downloaded and applied. Then when you release the next version of the theme, or a component is updated, the update comes in and installs painlessly and automatically just as soon as the user gives the OK. If they don't like it, they don't have to take the update. Basically I've spelled all this out on Brainstorm, take a look if you like the idea: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/15124/

Can you do it? Can gnome-look.org do it? It would simplify a lot for the end user if it can be done.

It'd be a good idea to set up an apt repository, nice and clean.

But right now, if you're using Ubuntu, you don't need to download everything manually. Just click on the link above that says "Ubuntu Download" and it will download a script that will grab all the latest versions of everything, install them and apply them. It's got a GUI and menu-items for future changing/upgrading, so if that works for you, there's no need to worry about repositories and whatnot.

 Bug?

 
 by oOarthurOo on: Nov 10 2008

Hi, first, beautiful theme. I've got it on two computers now. On my laptop I tweaked the selected colour of shiki-brave to #476055. Using shiki-colours easy metacity when apps are maximized the selected colour across the top is correct, that is, the colour is my custom #476055. However, when apps are not maximized the colour reverts to default shiki-brave colour for "selected items". This is quite noticable. For the moment I am using skiki-colors metacity, which does not have this problem. Maximized or not it displays the correct custom colour.

My metacity is version 1:2.22.0-2.

Again, thank you for this extremely functional and beautiful theme.

The metacities are set up to always use the color you've designed as "Selected Items Background". If you've set a different color and it doesn't come out in the top stripe, try changing your Metacity back and forth. Older versions of Metacity need to be refreshed like this when changing colors, etc.

Well, that's embarassing. You're absolutely right. Another switch put everything right. Sorry to waste your time, but thanks for setting me straight.

I find the skinny ones too hard to move around so I really like that you've got the easy version.

 Love the theme! Some feedback

Love the Colorize theme set!

I've been looking at your entire set of *-colors for a while and finally tried them out. They are certainly wonderful. Keep up the great work and good luck making more themes/skins, I'd love to try them all :)

Suggestions:
You might want to add in the readme file that the UI fonts will be changed by the colorize script. No big deal, but I noticed the fonts changed after the install without any mention in the readme. Love the new fonts though :)

Problems:
In Intrepid Ibex, in the Places menu the icons for Home Folder and Desktop appear next to their text, but the icons for Documents, Music, Pictures, and Video are all missing. The icons show up in nautilus however - and my colorize installation went fine.

Questions:
I didn't see the bug at the end of the install where the script hangs and I couldn't press OK. Does this mean the script isn't detecting Emerald? As I mentioned before, I'm running Intrepid Ibex and Compiz is installed and working fine. I'm not sure what the colorize script installs if it detects Emerald so I can't check if it's there or not but I'd like to have it as I love Compiz.

Thanks for all the hard work, and again, keep it up!

Yeah, I will add a section that warns about the fonts. All I do is make them smaller, so they match with the GDM's.

You have to logout for the places thing to work. This is because I used a workaround to fix a bug in GNOME 2.24's "gnome-icon-theme" package for you. However, you have to either logout or run "sudo killall gnome-panel" for those icons to appear again. If I do not run this workaround, you will have ugly standard GNOME icons in there instead of the ones used by other icon themes. You can read more about this here:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=539286
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-icon-theme/+bug/278033

And lastly, the script will only install emerald if it's running already. That means, if you're using an emerald theme right now, it will install and apply the emerald theme for you (and probably have that bug i mentioned when it's complete). If you're running metacity or gtk-window-decorator, then emerald themes will not be installed. I just think it's smarter to only install emerald themes if you're actually using emerald.

And a bit more on the emerald themes - I actually recommend using the included metacities rather than emerald. There's virtually no visual difference (since the theme doesn't use rounded corners and drawing round corners is emerald's only advantage over metacity).

Besides Metacity is more flexible to color changes and faster. I include the emeralds mostly for xfce users.

Thanks for the responses. I've checked those links and you're right. Things work properly now :)

As for Emerald, you can add more effects to the window theme on top of whatever the theme defaults to (such as making it look glassy) which is why some people may prefer it. However with your themes they tend to look better flat, so I'll enjoy the metacity/SVN theme :)

Again, thanks for your hard work and I appreciate the rapid response. I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!

 awesome theme - 1 question

 
 by aaronp on: Nov 12 2008

Firstly, well done on a sensational theme. Perfect mix of dark and light. All the other dark ones that looked good in the screenshot were just too dark.

One issue I'm having in firefox-3 after installing the firefox fix via stylish is when you type an address into the url bar and it comes up with a list of previously typed addresses, the header line (site heading) is ok but the second line of each entry (the full url) is white and almost impossible to read.
I can't figure out the css style to change in the stylish plugin to change the colour of this.

Anyone know how to fix?

thanks
Aaron

When using the fix, the second line you mention is the same color as it would be using any other theme such as clearlooks, etc. It's the firefox default.

On the other hand, if you find that setting to be too light for you, perhaps there's a way to darken it or make it bold. I'm not sure of the code needed for that, but it should be possible with stylish.

ok i figured it out thanks.
For anyone with the same issue::

the following was all I needed to add:

.ac-normal-text {
color: #333333 !important;
}

after the RichListAutoComplete section.

Note, this changed both the title and url of each item to that colour but at least I can read them now. I will keep looking to see if I can change the colors independently.

cheers
Aaron

 Nice work! Great theme, but...

 
 by Chrissss on: Nov 12 2008

...what i don't like is the fact the the scroll bar of maximized windows is not at the edge of the screen.

In other words. Open a web-browser (e.g. firefox), open a "long" website an maximize the browser window.

No2 i can't throw my mouse cursor to the far right of the screen and scroll the webpage. I've got to aim 2 or 3 px to the left and grab the scrollbar.

For me this is a huge usablitiy issue of your theme.

Try the clearlooks-only version! It's made with regular scrollbars for that purpose.
