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.

//Requirements?
+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


//Thanks
+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

/Changelog:
+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)

I absolutely adore this theme--it's minimalistic and clean, but also nuanced.

For some reason, though, the Nautilus side-panel doesn't conform to the rest of the theme. I'm not sure if this is intentional or a bug.

Hey any plans on making a graphite version of this as well? It doesn't sound too hard to make it grey - but of course, I know nothing about creating skins

I'm sorry... what fonts are you using in this? I'm trying to recreate what you've got here (Using Ubuntu 8.04) and my fonts are seriously lame in comparison.

If it's ok for you, i'm planning to create an "alternative Leopard OS X" theme, including awn themes, wallpapers, icon set, and i would like to include your GTK theme... but maybe first you want to put it on gnome-look.org by yourself.. let me know!

P.S. What icon set did you use on the screenshot? Thanks!

:iconfratrip:
fratrip Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2008
Hmm... well you can include it in your pack if you want, just be sure to give me creidt and link back to this page. The icon theme is my own assorted set: [link]

Very nice theme :)
I would suggest some lines for gtkrc source:
GtkScrolledWindow::scrollbar-spacing = 0 # 0 pixels between gtklist and scrollbar

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

Thanks, I'm just too lazy to try those options now, since I'm not using this theme at the moment. I'll include a comment if anyone should want to add those.

Ok, just wanted to add a new suggest for the source; it's about to including the scrollbar in gtklistwindow:

GtkScrolledWindow::scrollbars-within-bevel = 1 # very important for better appearance ;)

The panel BG in this is not the panel BG in ur screenshot.
How did you get ur panel to look like that?

:iconfratrip:
fratrip Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2008
Hmm... did you check the panel folder inside the theme? If not, it's one of the images from the samui port for gtk.
