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.

 IM flashing!

 
 by abbathdoom on: Dec 8 2008
 
Score 50%

I love this theme and always use it, but the one thing that drives me potty is when I am using Pidgin I have the notification plugin set to have the chat window in the bottom panel flash like Windows MSN when I get a message. I find that the IM chat window flashing just isn't bright enough with this theme.

On other themes I've liked (and on Windows) there seems to be 3 colors for apps in the task bar: minimized, open, and trying to get your attention (which is always a big contrast to the first two colours). The trying to get your attention colour on this theme just ain't vivid enough. Can you make it stand out more? Ideally the colour would be the same colour used for the theme (brave, wise etc) If you could change this then the theme would be perfect!.

Personally, I agree with you. I wish I could change the flashing color, but it appears to be arbitrarily selected. I think the panel chooses a darker version of the selected background for this action, but there is no real way for me to change it.

Really? I'm kinda surprised by that.

Is there no way to get this fixed up stream then?

Well, that's precisely what I meant. It takes that setting (which is the color for prelighted buttons) and uses a darker color for it. Since it depends on that setting rather than having an independent value, there's no way to modify it without breaking the other setting.

wait - after taking a second look, I noticed that the code you linked to uses a different parameter than the panel's (wnctasklist) so I tested it and checked if it works, but still no change.

Just one question: Is there any way to make the panels smaller than 24 pixels?

I don't really know, that depends on your panel configuration and the nature of general GNOME applets. I think other desktop environments are more friendly towards what you want.

 Install script is buggy - colorizeme

 
 by mssever on: Dec 16 2008
 
Score 50%

The colorizeme install script is buggy and shouldn't be used as it currently exists.

For one thing, it mucks about making system-wide changes, instead of using the per-user directories that are available for everything but GDM themes. Some of the changes are hidden and non-reversible (such as modifying GDM and gconf settings without making backups, and deleting icons from the Gnome theme). If I run a script to install a theme, I expect it to only do stuff that will apply as long as that theme is selected. If I change the theme for any reason, 100% of the changes made should be reversed--without having to run a separate program.

Also, the script has a number of problems which suggest the author doesn't really know what he/she is doing, and thus could harbor many undetected bugs. For one thing, the script is 1,078 lines long. Considering what the script does, 100-200 lines should be more than enough. A long script is tiring to review, and it shows signs of extensive copy-and-pasting (which means that any errors fixed in one place aren't necessarily fixed in another). Any copy-and-paste work should be assumed to be buggy, because it's so difficult to prove otherwise. Especially since the code also isn't indented properly. The DRY (don't repeat yourself) principle is badly needed here.

This script also badly misuses sudo. For starters, it calls gksudo ... echo. Three times in a row. There's not much point in echoing a single space as root. And there's no sane reason to do it three times. I'm assuming the author used this to keep sudo from prompting for a password later in the program. But that reasoning won't necessarily work. If the user has configured sudo to always ask for a password, or if the downloads take longer than the password timeout (possibly due to user configuration of sudo), then sudo will prompt for a password. If the user launched the script as instructed, then there will be no terminal window, and the user will conclude that the program is broken (which is true), because sudo won't be able to prompt when it needs to. The ideal solution here is to make a single sudo call that does everything. One possibility would be to put everything that requires root privileges in a separate script and run that script with sudo. Another thing: The script normally calls sudo -S. The -S switch causes sudo to read the password from stdin. However, since nothing is provided on stdin, this is at best unnecessary. At worst, it could prevent sudo from prompting for a password if it has to, thus breaking the script.

Another bug: This script assumes that no one would ever name a directory ~/ColorizeMe, thus at the beginning of the script it unconditionally deletes such a directory and all its contents if it exists. If the user happens to have valuable data in a directory of that name, too bad. I hope they have a backup. Temporary files belong in /tmp. If you insist on putting temp files somewhere else, be absolutely sure you don't cause data loss, because causing data loss is unforgivable.

This script should install stuff under /usr/local, not /usr.

Finally, there are several sleep statements which only waste time. They don't accomplish anything.

Hey, I am sorry that you've had a bad experience with the script. I have mentioned many times over that I am not by any means a script maker, therefore the script is very redundant and not efficient. However, the script is fully reversible, does not harm the system in any way and does its job which is fully transforming the system with the *-colors artwork.

It has many quick hacks and ugly copy/pasting, but it's just that. It's long and redundant for lack of scripting knowledge but it does its job regardless. Anyone is welcome to give feedback and help improve it/clean it up.

Another thing is - the script is not meant to just download things and leave it at that - it would only require 10 lines if it were just that; the script is meant as a way to install and apply everything, literally transforming the system with the *-colors artwork. Any of the "hidden" changes you mention like editing gconf and GDM files are necessary to do this, otherwise you'd only be downloading the files and doing nothing with them. Other things the script does like removing some links from the gnome-icon-theme package are done in order to fix a well known icon bug present in GNOME 2.24. Also, Some of the sleep functions are necessary for things such as emerald, etc in order to work correctly. It also installs things into /usr rather than per-user directories, since this way themes will be available to everyone and will display correctly even when running apps in root.

All the other things you mentioned do need attention. The script could be made 1/5th as long and cleaner.. the sudo stuff could use less quick hacks and using /tmp may be a better solution for storing things. Thanks for taking the time to express your concerns, since it is true that these issues need to be looked at.

Shut the hell up! First, stop you complaining, this person is providing something for free that is quality. Probably with no other individual help. Second, take your opinion and fly a kite moron. If you want complain go back to Windows and do it there. If you want to help, fix the script up and send it back to the author so they can release a fix, or a new release.

A final word. STFU

Hey, thanks for the laugh. It's hilarious when people get all bent out of shape over nothing.

In case you didn't understand it, my comments were intended to be helpful. I don't have time to fix the script up myself, but I did have time to point up a few things that need changing. If it were my own script, I would find such criticism helpful.

Of course, Windows has absolutely nothing to do with this discussion, so I don't know why you brought it up. And also, the fact that the author is providing something for free is irrelevant. You probably wouldn't be able to use Gnome at all if it weren't for the people who filed bug reports pointing out defects in software that's given away free. Since there's no bug tracker for this theme as far as I know, the comments are the only way to report a problem.

Again, thanks for overreacting. It's been fun.

Once again, thanks for the input - once the holidays are over I will have the time to look into this further. The poster above has a strong opinion, but there's no need to get discouraged.

You can also use the google code page for bug reports and a more efficient discussion, if you have anything else you wish to discuss regarding the themes.

 'Startbar' and 'Taskbar' probl

Hello.

I am using Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid...

I installed MurrineSVN (when I shouldn't, but I did accidentally...) and then used the Installation script which seems to have worked fine. I got everything, plus the menus on the System folder.

HOWEVER, the Startbar and Taskbar of ubuntu haven't changed colors or shape. So it is really difficult to read the letters (Applications, Places, System etc...). The small logo on the left, was applied, no color on the bar itself however.

Anyone knows how to overcome this or do it manually? Thank you...

Woops. Got it!

For some reason, the panel background didn't change automatically to "None (use theme)" so I was left with the old image file as background.

Solved.

Right click on panel, Preferences, Background tab, first choice..

I'll look into fixing it, it should be easy to just add the needed setting once I figure out which one it is.
