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.

 Where is userChrome.css?

Installed from PPA in jaunty. Can't locate userChrome.css. Where is this file located?

I don't think the userChrome file is included in the installable packages, because no package should install a file in another application's folder :P

It is, however, highly recommended and included in the tarball or in http://userstyles.org/styles/10822 for easier installation/updating.

For anyone that does choose to install the userstyle or use the userChrome file, I can promise that it won't conflict or break any other GTK theme - such as human, clearlooks, etc.. It might even fix the same issues in others such as dust/newwave.

I actually visited this link before I asked you but I guess the 'noscript'firefox add-on has blocked me from seeing the "Show Code" button. Just noticed it again from my work PC (windows).

Can you create a metacity that is (more) friendly to global menu applet? :)

You could have used the Clearlooks metacity. If you use a program to hide the menubar, then the Shiki Metacity isn't really required anymore.

I don't think the clearlooks metacity is really anything like shiki-colors (different coloring, different size, different buttons). I know you can't cater to people with globalmenu, but if your reasoning is that it's irrelevant (rather than too much trouble to support), I'd encourage you to do it!

I use shiki-colors with globalmenu and it looks very good, 90% as good as without globalmenu. But if you made a metacity specifically for globalmenu-users, I would be very interested!

I didn't mean to say it was irrelevant, only that without having to worry about matching with the menubar - just about any metacity out there should look just fine in the case you don't happen to like the included ones when using globalmenu.

I mentioned Clearlooks because I personally like it as it is simple, square and colorful. However, other metacities such as the ever popular "Blended" are already created and work well with Shiki once there's no menubar to worry about.

I understand your point. I actually failed to think of that soon enough. I just don't think it's necessary to exert effort for the global menu applet because I don't find it very useful. Perhaps, I would reconsider when they manage to make it truly global which won't happen soon because they would have to work with too many toolkits.

 Ugly widgets in Synaptic

Shiki theme works fine everywhere, except in Synaptic where I get a window which looks like Motif 0.1

That happens when you install any theme or icon set from "Appearance Preferences" instead of extracting the tarballs to /usr/share/icons

What is happening, is that synaptic runs as administrator - and if you simply install themes per user, the administrator won't be able to use them.

There are some ways around it:
-Do as it says above in the theme description: 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

-Install them with appearance preferences running as administrator.

-Or simply extract them as administrator to /usr/share/icons (recommended).

Either of these three methods will work.

sorry, it's /usr/share/icons for icons, and /usr/share/themes for GTK themes.

It's the Rhythmbox Desktop Art plugin. It works as an extension to Rhythmbox, so it doesn't add any extra requirements and it's beautiful once you set it up as you please!

Excellent job! Lusers in Ubuntu artwork team should be right away kicked off.

Could you please make also orange Ubuntu version with light/white menus? Maybe Human Clearlooks has the right menu color.. Because all those black menus are ugly and icons are not very good visible.

There's no way to make light menus in the current setup without breaking Firefox 3.

You can only have either light menubar and light menus, or dark menubar and dark menus. If you want the former, clearlooks-colors or murrine-colors is already there for that.
