Description:

Candido Engine is the Gtk2 cairo-based engine for new Candido themes.

This engine was expecially designed to be fast light and clean, and to be wonderful as Candido pixmaps themes, and different.

Yes Candido Engine is different, it's more contrasted and more flat, that's my new Candido proposal!

On official website, http://candido.berlios.de:
Source code availble, package for ubuntu, pkgbuild for archlinux.

NEED SOMEONE WHO PACKAGE CANDIDO FOR FEDORA OR SUSE.


### Installation Instructions: ###
After the extraction of the file, go in the source dir and compile as following:

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation

make

make install


### Gtkrc options: ###
- scrollbar_color = "#value" sets scrollbar color
- contrast: 1.0 = default contrast, 0.5-0.7 = smooth
- menubarstyle: 0 = flat, 1 = gradient
- menubaritemstyle: 0 = flat, 1 = gradient
- squaredstyle: 0 = rounded, 1 = squared
- animation: TRUE = enabled, FALSE = disabled


### Themes by me: ###
Candido-Calm
Candido-Candy
Candido-DarkOrange
Candido-Hybrid
Candido-NeoGraphite

Hello:

First of all, thanks for this awesome engine!

If you are looking for someone to package Candido for Fedora, I have already done the job ;-).

I have created RPM packages of Candido-Engine for Fedora, archs i686 and x86_64:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=118124

You can put them in your homepage, and I accept suggestions about the packages if you want to change something.

Cheers,
Germán

Hello everyone. I really like the candido engine but I have a little problem. Only very few themes work. I've installed the Ubuntu candido engine package, but the only themes that works are those wich contain many files such as "scrollbars", "arrows"... in the main theme folder. The others themes, with just the gtkrc file don't work. The only themes working are Condido, Candido Graphite. Candido-Candy for example doesn't work such as all the others. Anybody can help ? Do I miss a dependency ? What can I do ?

Your theme looks really great!
I installed your ubuntu package at my Ubuntu 6.06. But how to "activate" it now? (I'm new to Linux).

Thanks for any hint in advance!

Hi, I downloaded the ubuntu file and installed the package. I'm a bit new to ubuntu and linux commands. When I try to run the
./configure --prefix=/usr--enable-animation

command it gives me this error
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

I am not familiar how to get to the source directory. Any suggestions?
