Hey ttuuxxx,

I installed the pet and it appeared to work just fine, but Seamonkey is still reporting 1.1.8. Did I miss something?

Sully

nope as long as you have the new Icons mission accomplished Smile

Sub_title: gtktheme-help-advice?
 

Have been fiddling about, trying to make a new look with a gtk theme. Without knowing much about how it all works, merely some mods to a copy and a bit of time spent trial&error and checking the results. So far it's almost useable, as far as I can tell; the main hangup for me being a foreground-text issue on active tabs (screenshot here ). Would appreciate any help from the gtk-gurus here if they're not too terribly occupied with all the holiday stuff, etc Smile - the attached NUdark.zip is NOT a finished product-as-such (but any advice on how to fix would be welcome, thanks).

Is there a little tutorial somewhere on the basics of installing and modifying GTK+ 2.0 themes, complete with beginner's explanations of "theme engines" and things like that? (These themes don't look quite as easy to understand and use as, say, IceWM themes!) If so, thanks in advance for letting me know!

What I know about it is that I have a diploma in Web, so that gives me some insight in xml, but with the gtk2 themes I learn more just by backing up the file first, and playing with it and seeing what does what, every time I changed something I reloaded the theme and noticed what changed.
well with colours it goes like this in icewm which is the same with gtk2 themes you can specify colours different ways.
sure the example above aren't the same place or colour, but its showing you 3 ways of typing out colours.


colour
ColorClockText="#0078ff"
ColorClockText=White
ColorNormalBorder="rgb:27/28/2f"

or this theme I added, The fonts were really small and I couldn't read them

style "theme-default"
{
GtkButton ::default_border = { 0, 0, 0, 0 }
GtkRange ::trough_border = 0
GtkPaned ::handle_size = 6

So I added this line, Which I got from puppy default gtk2 silver theme,

font_name="DejaVu Sans 12"

and I place it in this location

style "theme-default"
{
font_name="DejaVu Sans 12" <-------------right here
GtkButton ::default_border = { 0, 0, 0, 0 }
GtkRange ::trough_border = 0
GtkPaned ::handle_size = 6
now the whole documents has that size of font Smile

also theme engines like clearlooks or murrine are basically drivers that run a certain type of gtk2 theme, and sometimes supports window managers with the themes, murrine can be stricktly gtk2 or it can be gtk2 plus metacity, which doesn't work with puppy, but murrine is a good place to start playing around with Smile
here's a link to it, its 38kb includes the theme engine and 14 themes, located in /usr/share/themes

I'm especially interested in Clearlooks because (1) it's going to be in Puppy 4.2 and (2) it looks a whole lot like the best of the Tk 8.5 themes, so my Tcl/Tk apps (with an appropriate color scheme) would fit right in, even if I didn't rewrite them to use Gnocl instead of Tk. Is there a .PET with the Clearlooks theme engine and lots of themes?

Ya sure the location is http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=34128
and use the smaller package, its more stable, its the one in the next puppy and has 6 themes.
I have a feeling the murrine engine might also be in the next puppy as well, due to size and how nice the themes are, they are identical to clearlooks quality.

OK, I think I'm starting to catch on a bit! Here are a few screenshots of Pmusic with different Clearlooks themes I'm working on.

Clearlooks-Winterblue:



Clearlooks-Autumnalia:



Clearlooks-RoyalPurple2 (I think there's already a Clearlooks-RoyalPurple theme):



I'm typing this message in SeaMonkey with the Clearlooks-Winterblue theme; I don't think I'll be using the same old silver-gray themes too much any more!

I just have one question for anyone who may be able to answer it: What's "PRELIGHT"? I see that there are four big categories of colors--to oversimplify a bit: "bg" (window background), "fg" (window text), "base" (text and list background), and "text" (text in text and list boxes). Each one has five specifications: NORMAL, PRELIGHT, SELECTED, ACTIVE, and INSENSITIVE. I can see what all of them mean except PRELIGHT. Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer this!

Those look pretty good:) I'm more for the traditional silver or a few of those murrine themes were nice, I'm glad WhoDo is going to put them in the next release of 4.2.
PRELIGHT If I remember correctly happens when you hover your mouse of a icon and the background changes, a prime example would be Pmount and the file cabinet.
hope that helps

Here are screenshots of three more Clearlooks themes, plus a "Clearlooks-Colorschemes" .PET containing all six of mine (requires, obviously, GTK+ 2.0 or greater, plus the Clearlooks theme engine).

(EDIT 2009 Feb 22: These screenshots and the ones above are of what I hope are the final, tweaked versions of the themes, and I've substituted them for the originals. The .PET attached to this message now has these, not the un-tweaked originals. If anyone thinks they need still more tweaking, just let me know.)

Clearlooks-Aquaviva:



Clearlooks-Greenery:



Clearlooks-MamaRose (my wife's favorite):



These themes are just plain text files, about 4 KB or so each uncompressed. If you want to tweak them or create your own using them as templates, here are some basic things you need to know (if you don't already):

All color codes in these themes are in "#RRGGBB" format, two hexadecimal digits for red, two for blue, two for green, always enclosed by "# on the left and " on the right.

"fg" means window foreground; "bg" is window background; "base" is, e.g., textbox and listbox background; "text" is, e.g., textbox and listbox text.

The meanings of "NORMAL," "SELECTED," and "INSENSITIVE" should be obvious. "PRELIGHT" is, e.g., the color you see when you mouse over a menu item (as I now know). "ACTIVE" is kind of like "SELECTED," only for when the window doesn't have focus (so far as I can figure out).

In addition to the 20 color selections near the top, there are also scattered ones farther down: "clearlooks-button" for buttons, "clearlooks-notebook" for tabs, "clearlooks-menu" for menu background, "clearlooks-menu-item" for menu text color during mouse-over, plus "clearlooks-frame-title," "clearlooks-tooltips," and "clearlooks-progressbar" (should be obvious, I hope).

Finally, be warned: if you make even one little mistake--like leaving out a quotation mark, a pound sign, a color code, or any other little thing--GTK+ 2.0 (or greater) will punish you severely. How? It will make your beautiful theme look exactly like the ugly "Default" theme, that's how! Not only that, but (unlike Tk or Gnocl) it won't give you any friendly, helpful error messages telling you where to look for the problem. Is it worth it? Well . . . you be the judge.

I know that problem oh so well, Its happened to me many of times Smile
and when it does, I'm glad theres a 'undo' button, After Every change I make, I save it and test it, and if it didn't work, I click undo. That way it saves you a lot of time trying to find out where you went wrong.
Simple yet effective

Sub_title: Vista Green
 

Hey, crew…I realized that I had done both of these, that I liked ‘em so much I use ‘em regularly on my desktop, but that I hadn’t shared ‘em.

They are straight up mutations, putting green where there was blue.

The jwm theme is a mutation of WhoDo’s Vista theme, and I’ve labeled it (get this): Vista-green.

And the gtk theme is a mutation of one of the Clearlook gtk themes with 4.2 (Clearlooks DeepSky).

I’ll post the jwm theme on the jwm themes thread and the gtk theme on the gtk themes thread…so, forgive the double post (sort of) but each thread is a different deal…

Enjoy!
