Sub_title: 28. september
 

Stardust
- I have tweeked the theme H2O-gtk2-Saphire. Works well together with original JWM theme. H2O-Stardust is only 10 kb compressed.
- Have made an iconset for default desktop icons. The glas-theme in 2.15 is nice but there are limited numbers of icons. Stardust_icons48 is gray-bluish as gtk-theme. Filesnames are the same as in /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps. Just overwrite existing icons, and poof...
- There is also some extra icons in same shades.
- Some icons are made for dialogboxes in xpm format. They have only 6-bits colordepth to keep size down. See here.


Download
Stardust-0.5 (10 kb). Gtk-theme for builtin gtk-theme selector.
Stardust-MU-0.5 (10 kb). Gtk-theme for Marks (MU) gtk-theme selector.
Stardust core icons (97 kb).
Stardust extra icons (67 kb).

Very nice!

Here is my version, with a nice Vista menu bar, the LiNsta green progress bar and a brighter colour for all blue parts. You'll find also the Emerald version.
It works fine in IceWM.

@Lobster
Both go under /usr/share/themes and then you should be able to select them with MU's Gtk-Themechooser utility.

@sbaguz

Where would I change the default window workspace color? In both of your themes it is a dull grey, but I would prefer a crisp white especially for the Emerald version. Otherwise they look GR8, m8!

Cheers

I know, I know... Confused
That was also my first idea seeing these themes... It' s very simple to avoid this: you have to edit the gtkrc file in the style "default" section replacing all #cccccc with for example #eaeaea or #f7f7f7. This works fine... except for the Gimp where some windows have the right colour and some others remain of the darker one... Because I use very often Gimp, I preferred to keep the dull grey.

Very Happy Superb

Stardust is already in the Alphas/Experimental Puppy 2.16 (a new 2.16 experimental 3 due today Sunday)

Barry is (rightly in my opinion) making Stardust the default JWM theme for 2.16 - hope he sees and manages to include your icon set. Though I like the icon set in 2.14 and 2.15 (glass icons) too.

A very pleasant set of icons Smile

Hi,

Great job ! This is really nice looking !

...I have understood, Saphire and Emerald are in the second pack and i didn't seen them...
theu are great looking...

Where can i download other themes if availables, for JWM ? ...I only have the old ones.
I would like one brushed metal like apple OSX Smile

excuse me for editing again this post but there is something i cannot understand. When i change my theme to Emerald with MU-GTK-themechooser, i get only whatever being inside the windows to change and look new, but the top of the window with the bar with the X does not change like yours... what do i have to add ?

Best regards,
Laurent

The inside is a separate thing from the outside. The outside is the domain of the windowmanager, such as JWM or IceWM. JWM has only limited theming abilities, mostly changing colors and sizes. IceWM (used in Puppy 2.15CE and several puplets) has fancier themes, like the vista theme seen in the second post or more Apple-esque themes. But it still only affects the borders and taskbar.

The guts of the window are done by a tool kit, in this case GTK. That's what this theme is for. The reason it won't change the guts of every window is that some programs use another tool kit, like QT or FLTK.

Also keep in mind there are two versions of GTK, and version one is still used by some apps. A GTK2 theme like this one won't affect GTK1 apps. Puppy doesn't have too many of those anymore though. Some themes have a version for both 1 and 2, such as the Smooth-Peachy-Clean theme I use in Pizzapup.

Hi zigbert, I love the icons, so clearly recognizable This is exactly what Puppy needs to complement it's easy to use nature. Many thanks!

Nice that you enjoy this simple facelift for Puppy. It's clear that it needs a minor upgrade. The home-icon is unsharp, and color needs a tweek in both help-icon and connect-icon. I'll guess next will be the menu-icons. Some of them really need an upgrade.

So, Barry. If you read this. Will you hold on to xpm for the menu, or are you ready for png now? Do Puppy have any libs/progs that doesn't accept png?

True, but the theme would probably port OK since it just uses the pixmap engine, which we could easily add in for gtk1. I think it would need some simplification of the graphics though.

Zigbert - so far as I have been able to determine Puppy is perfectly ready for png. The problems will lie in findong all the applications which reference the old icons as .xpm. These images are used in more than just the menu, a lot of them appear in wizards too, and some appear in help pages and "home.html". But with the mini-icons they will mainly appear in the menus and wizards.

Nathan

If the applications support png, would it then be a problem making a xpm-link to the png?
