GTKRC (themes)


Artwork
Description:

Well, I think there are a lot of new themers who have
trouble understanding gtkrc and think that the widget
factory is some magical app that once you have that
installed and you know how to use it theming becomes
very easy.

So this group I thought I'd start because I know there
are a lot of experienced themers here with a lot of
knowledge and a lot of new themers which have a lot
of questions.

This would be the place to discuss possible bugs
and fixes and ideas and such.

I think we need a place like this because:
"No problem should ever have to be solved twice."

Join if you have any knowledge in gtkrc or are interested
in starting making themes and contributing to this
site!

 systray icon size

 
 by IstrikeAgain on: Sep 9 2008
 
Score 50%

when using the theme Glow Ice (or any of the Aurora-based glow suite) the tray icons are all of the same size and uniform.

when using any other theme (even aurora-based ones) some tray icons are bigger than others. What argument controls this?

(I'm using xfce4-panel)

I want to change the button used by the gnome-panel widget. (e.g if you move your mouse over the default time weather widget, or disk mounter widget) for now, it is using the default button animation. How can I change it to use a custom button images for it?

I solved it myself. Here is the solution:

widget_class "*PanelApplet*" style "panelbuttons"
widget_class "*PanelWidget*" style "panelbuttons"

Try this line into default style of gtkrc:

bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "Others/main.png"

or under metacity style (just add if doesn't exist):

############### METACITY #############################

style "metacity-frame"
{
# Focused title background color
bg[SELECTED] = @bg_color

# Focused title text color
fg[SELECTED] = @fg_color # shade (0.995, @base_color)
bg[NORMAL] = "#DFDFE8"

bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "Others/gradient.png" #
}

class "MetaFrames" style "metacity-frame"
class "GtkWindow" style "metacity-frame"

################################

you must set the path to pixmap position
hope this help :)

Do you mean automatically stretched? I don't know that... make the file bigger (like 800x600 px.) can be a solution if contains less colors, but otherwise is a memory consumption.

I found the solution in other GTK theme from this site:

Code:
style "window-background"
{
engine "pixmap"
{
image
{
function = FLAT_BOX
file = "<background file>"
stretch = TRUE
border = { 0, 0, 0, 0 "
}
}
}

End of code

Without stretch = TRUE it will act like one that you wrote. With it - it will do EXACTLY that I was want.

The only bad thing here that this code affects not only window backgrounds, but also tooltips' backgrounds.

 Ubuntulooks & Ubuntu 8.10

 
 by twrock on: Nov 4 2008
 
Score 50%

Has anyone looked into the "conflict" between the new "human-theme" in Ubuntu 8.10 and the ubuntulooks engine? I'm trying to figure it out and to see if there is a simple solution.

Also for Robert (and anyone else who uses the "unstyle" style trick), an error is reported when choosing themes with that piece of code: "This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme engine " is not installed."

The piece of GTK code in question looks like this:

style "unstyle"
{
engine ""
{
}
}

As far as I can tell, it no longer works. I was using that code to clean up a panel problem when using the "contact-lookup-applet" (and it also is there to prevent Sodipodi from crashing). It's messed up now, so I think that means any reference to the "unstyle" style is ignored.

I haven't Ibex installed, but sure that there's no other "engine" lines into? maybe the error reported is not about that line...

Sorry, looks like I didn't make that very clear. Both the reference to the ubuntulooks engine _and_ the reference to the "" engine (referred to as the "unstyle stlye") cause error codes. And until I removed the first problem (the reference to the ubuntulooks engine), I didn't even see that there was the second problem.

In my themes, the ubuntulooks engine is used for some stuff like the look of progress bars, etc. It was no big deal to just ignore it, because the effects aren't very noticeable. (See also the post below.)

The "unstyle" was a workaround for some other minor problems. But it was tricky to figure out how to use that hack, and it'd be nice to find another solution if this one isn't going to work.

 IBEX gedit and GTK+

 
 by Puli on: Nov 5 2008
 
Score 50%

Hello everyone,
here an issue with gedit when using a GTK theme (slickness black and vision).
The first time gedit didn't work then restarded x and it did but slow as hell.
Tried to launch it from terminal and i have got this : impossible to find the engine theme in module_path:«ubuntulooks»,
Tried to install ubuntulooks from repos but it doesnt fix the problem, instead it uninstalls ubuntu-desktop, human-theme and ubuntu-artwork, so i have undo it all.
Gedit works fine with any original theme but gtk+....
Also, after installing a new icon theme (black-white 2 style) i have noticed that it doesnt change the documents, music, pictures and video icons in the upper bar's drop down menu but leaves them basic.
Any idea or workaround?
Thanx in advance

About ubuntulooks, see my post above. Those new human theme and desktop conflict with the ubuntulooks engine. I did a little digging into it, and haven't yet found a good solution. Your experience with installing ubuntulooks and losing the others is exactly the problem others experienced. So I can't recommend attempting to install the ubuntulooks engine in Ibex.

Regarding gedit, yes, for some reason it is incredibly slow in Ibex. Hopefully that will be noticed and updated in the near future.

Oh well let's hope then as, apart this incompatibility, Ibex seems to be a good system.
Thank you anyway twrock. :)
