**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCE**

Because some work issues, I can't be available to continue to the development of this GTK2.0/Xfwm4 theme, if anyone could take it and continue with the lightweight line (using only the equinox and pixmaps engines) adn development of this, I'll know that all the work inside this theme it's enjoyed.

Who said that breadcrumbs are not for the mice?

Previously Elemental Perfection Remix

Only Equinox and pixmaps required, only for Xfce, down here only old info:

*********************************

Xfce now can have some "pseudo" breadcrumbs on thunar and open/save/search dialogs

Thanks to newhoa for helping me on the code.
Thanks to ochosi for the new "Elemental Perfection Remix xfwm4 theme"

**********************************************

Now I removed Aurora Engine, based on Golan's work, touch by me

Well, I made a mix of 4 great themes:

1. Some colors and configurations of the beautiful Perfection theme (http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/Perfection?content=122822) by LuxieRayku on the elegant elementary theme (http://danrabbit.deviantart.com/art/elementary-gtk-theme-83104033) by DanRabbit
2. I try to change make a nice xfwm4, mixing a little of the Elegant Carbonit-Colored xfwm4 (http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/Carbonit-Colored?content=77710) by asphyx, and the control buttoms of PC/OS Twiligh xfwm4 (http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/PC+OS+Twilight?content=122875) by crismolina from the PC/OS xfce theme.
3. Add the breadcrumbs for thunar file manager
4. No more orange-tint on xfwm4

Compressed archive contents GTK theme Elemental Perfection and the xfwm4 Elemental Perfection windows borders.

GTK theme depends on the murrine-git engine and aurora engine.
Xfwm4 will try to pick up gtk colors and give an uniformal appearence.

Great theme, but there's still some issues for me : the xfwm theme is broken (it only displays window buttons floating over, without any prehensile titlebar), and the clock applet displays black text over the dark-grey Xfce panel.

It's really good that you like this theme:

1. about xfwm4, it was my mistake, because I've uploaded the "alpha" work of the 3.0 version, I just upload a new xfwm4 theme.

2. panel issue is known, but every change I've made doesn't work, I use tint2/kupfer in replace the xfce4-panel.

Maybe anyone could help to update this theme, make it more compatible with the panel using only equinox/pixmaps (lightweight phylosophy)

First of all, thanks for your work.

I have a question: when using this theme I often get this error:

Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_main_quit: assertion `main_loops != NULL' failed

It only appears when closing gtk apps like mousepad or leafpad that have been started from the terminal. For example, I use leafpad to edit a system configuration file, then I save and quit. Leafpad hangs for a few seconds, then the error message appears in the terminal. (I'm using murrine-git btw.)

I wonder if others experienced this problem or perhaps it's got nothing to do with the theme...

I also see frequent GTK Warnings in my logs and they're particularly evident when starting GTK apps from the Terminal.

For example I just saw this: "Invalid borders specified for theme pixmap: null.png, borders don't fit within the image"

I hope the author can fix these bugs, as this is my favorite Xfce theme and I'm using it on my linux systems.

oh, and i assume adding a background image to the breadcrumbs-pathbar is impossible, right?

I guess so, It's a problem of the pathbar of thunar

If you're using Ubuntu 9.10 be sure that you've installed murrine-git (look from here in Gnome-look) and aurora engine

You only have to drag and drop the tar.gz to preferences

Hi, I would like to know how can I put the bar that you use to manage the opened windows, or if it's something exclusive of Arch Linux. Thanks in advance.

I forgot to add this info, the bar it's TINT2 (http://code.google.com/p/tint2/), in Arch you must have te AUR repo enabled and simply do:

yaourt -S tint2
