Aurora Leopard Suite by fratrip Aurora Leopard Suite by fratrip
/Aurora Leopard Suite

//What is this?
+A custom gtk theme using a mix of the aurora gtk engine and inspired by Mac OS X Leopard's design, for the linux gnome desktop environment.

+The aurora gtk engine and clearlooks engine. Aurora can be found here : [link] . Clearlooks comes installed by default on modern gnome desktops.

//Suggestions and notes.
+Extract to /usr/share/themes for best results, so that both root and normal user applications can use the theme.
+Use along with one of my icon sets for best results. Find them here: [link] .
+Also, if you like it and really appreciate my work, PLEASE add this to your favorites and comment.
+Also as :iconcrisg: has told me, if you should want to try and experiment for it to look better add these lines in the gtkrc:

GtkScrolledWindow::scrollbar-spacing = 0 # 0 pixels between gtklist and scrollbar

GtkToolbar::shadow-type = GTK_SHADOW_NONE # no border for toolbar

+Special thanks to :iconebupof: for the metacity and :iconfrosttyrant: for the icons and suggestions. Be sure to check out their galleries too.Thanks in advance. Enjoy! :D

+2.14.08- Added metacity window border (thanks again to :iconebupof: ) .

Hi, Franco!

First of all, thank you for the excellent theme! Finally, the first GTK theme that isn't trying to make Linux be MacOS, but makes Linux look as good as MacOS.

Maybe, you could help me with a tiny issue. Look at this screenshot: [link]

Is it possible to make icons with gray background be transparent, like here: [link] ?

OK, I think, this is a bug in Gnome or something. It was working ok in previous versions of Ubuntu.

Thanks anyway :) Looking forward to new editions of this excellent theme.

How can I install this - when I go to appearances and get it installed, it says that this might not be a valid theme?

(I am using opensuse/gtk2.14/aurora1.51)

Oh. . . I finally got the theme working! Many thanks!!!
