Theme/Style for KDE 3.2 +

MetaTheme is a project dedicated to unification of appearance between different graphics toolkits (currently GTK2, QT and Java).

The program is designed as a thin layer between toolkits and theme engines, creating unified API by which each theme engine can draw. The result is that every application uses the same code for drawing, making the appearance same across different applications. MetaTheme also adjusts behaviour a bit, so the overall effect of unification is impressive.

Please see the new homepage at http://www.metatheme.org/ for more details about this project.

 Nice, but...

The concept looks very nice. I was trying it earlier but it wouldn`t compile, it gave me an error while compiling:

mt_gtk2_draw.c: In function `retrieve_state':
mt_gtk2_draw.c:196: error: label at end of compound statement
mt_gtk2_draw.c: In function `draw_box':
mt_gtk2_draw.c:582: warning: the address of `draw_shadow', will always evaluate as `true'
make[2]: *** [mt_gtk2_draw.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/elocal/metatheme-0.0.1/toolkits/gtk2'
make[1]: *** [gtk2] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/elocal/metatheme-0.0.1/toolkits'
make: *** [toolkits] Error 2

So I removed "default:" in line 195 of toolkits/gtk2/mt_gtk2_draw.c and it compiled. But gtk2 apps don`t get theme and give an warning when runned from a terminal:

(xchat:1867): Gtk-WARNING **: /home/elocal/.metatheme/toolkits/libmt_gtk2.so: undefined symbol: _gtk_scrolled_window_get_scrollbar_spacing

QT apps seem to work fine tough.

Thanks for bug report.

Can you tell me what version of GTK and GCC do you have?

I've made a patch for the last error you mentioned. You can download it here:


Apply it by running this command in the metatheme directory:

patch -p1 < metatheme-scrollbar-spacing-fix.diff

Though it may not work, depending which other changes your GTK version has.

I have GCC 3.4.0, and GTK 2.4.1. The patch you posted worked nicely, the theme applied in GTK apps well with no warnings given. The patch didn't fix the error while compiling mt_gtk2_draw.c, which was easily fixed by removing default: in line 195. Other than that it seems to work properly. Nice job.

An unified theme engine is something that has been talked about a lot but never really done. Congratulation for being the first (AFAIK) one to change that.
I'll test and perhaps join your Project as soon as I get the broken GTK2 libs on my machine fixed.

How is this different from the gtk-qt engine (http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/gtk-qt)? I am currently using it to have consistency between the two toolkits, and it works with any theme. Please tell me what features MetaTheme has.

MetaTheme's main goal is to make full unification between all supported toolkits. The full unification means mainly two things: pixel-perfect look and the same or similiar behaviour of widgets between toolkits.

To fulfil this requirement MetaTheme provides through it's API only things that can be fully supported in all supported toolkits. Also each toolkit has a different set of widgets, so using theme engine from another toolkit is not sufficient for full unification.

At this time, MetaTheme supports only QT/KDE and GTK2 toolkits. But in future it will have support for others (like GTK1, Java, Mozilla, OpenOffice, and maybe others).

i've been using your theme with firefox now, and it's greatful how it works. it's a much better than gtk-qt. i think you should add your code to freedesktop.org. one error in plastik xp: if you have a frame (that 4-corner thing with a title on top) within a notebook control, then the frame is grey while the notebook is white. that looks ugly.
Nevertheless: your theme is the best
