That's because my window decoration theme only works for openbox, but you are likely using metacity as your window manager. Sorry, I don't know how to make metacity themes. Does anyone know a good windeco to match this theme? - Oct 06 2009
GNOME is saying the theme isn't installed right but it looks like it is to me. So I'm not entirely sure. - Oct 05 2009

Lucky you, I'm already working on two themes that fit what you requested. I'll try and remember to comment you back when I post them. The names will likely be Broken Oreo and Macchiato Double Shot if you'd just rather keep a lookout on the main page for when they are released. - Apr 10 2009

Not unless the Murrine engine supports a feature like this. I'm not switching to Aurora. Sorry. - Apr 10 2009
Check the new description, I added several colors! Now you can have six different users for your setup :) - Apr 07 2009
Are you using GNOME? If so, all you need to do is change the selected colors for the theme to change.

If not, message me back and I'll put the multiple colors back into the theme. Sorry, I was being lazy when I updated it. - Apr 05 2009
What distribution are you using?

If you have the newest Ubuntu, it comes with the right version of Murrine. You also need to install the Aurora engine. You can search for them with synaptic. - Jan 10 2009
Glad you like my theme!

Are you using xfce?
The screenshot is of an xfce desktop, so if you use GNOME it will sadly look different! D: - Jan 09 2009
Sadly, I don't know. That's a GNOME-related thing. If you can find me another theme that incorporates the smaller icon sizes in the GNOME menu that you like, link me to it. I'll investigate it and fold the changes into my theme. - Jan 07 2009
If you dislike the font sizes, look throughout the files Shinobi/gtk-2.0/base.gtkrc and Shinobi/gtk-2.0/panel.rc

You should find lines that say "font_name =" in them. Change the numbers in them to change the font sizes. For example

Quote:
font_name = "Bold 7"

could become
Quote:
font_name = "Bold 9"

or it could become
Quote:
font_name = "8"


If that's not what you were saying or you need more help, just say so. - Jan 07 2009
Open the file ~/.themes/Shinobi/gtk-2.0/base.gtkrc (or /usr/share/themes/Shinobi/gtk-2.0/base.gtkrc if you installed this system-wide)
(Yes, it's this file even if you use a different color variant than blue)

Look for the section:
style "murrine-menu" = "murrine-wider"

In that section there are two lines:
xthickness = 8
ythickness = 8

Those numbers are the padding values, so just change them to whatever you want. Now that you mention it, I seem to prefer the values of each set to 4. I've also edited the windeco to have a slightly less noticeable light border. Thanks for your interest in my theme. I will now be uploading the new version. - Jan 07 2009
I was able to make a decoration that looked similar to this just fine. but in porting over the window buttons emerald needs an image for when you hover over the buttons... I suppose I could just not make the buttons look different on hover, but this would probably confuse many people. Would you be willing to make buttons?

I installed compiz and emerald so I could try and make that, but I will not install metacity nor try to make a metacity theme. I dislike the method used to create metacity themes and do not wish to learn it. If this surprises you, read the "NOTE!!!!" section in my description ;)

I hope you'll use my theme anyway. Perhaps you could recommend a good metacity theme to other users in your comments here? Maybe this theme will become popular enough for someone to make a metacity theme. Who knows. - Jan 07 2009

Bling is definitely the right word. Most dark themes simply have none, or they have way too much (like every single pixmap theme with a 12px gloss at the top of every button). Believe it or not, until yesterday, this theme was completely flat. - Jan 06 2009

There are a few readability problems on dark themes.

There was some place that seemed to use a staticly blue hyperlink that's hard to read, but I can't find it anymore.

The most important problem is that the ひらがな reading that comes after the 漢字 is highlighted with a peach color, but you don't assign the text to be black, so on my computer it's grey on peach and very hard to see.

I'm very glad to see someone replace gjiten, that program was getting old. I hope you can iron out these problems, gwaei is a lot more promising. - Jan 11 2009

This is a really nice app.
Two things about it though, and one of them is a killer for me. Both should be easy fixes though.

1: The video progress is shown using a progressbar. This is highly distracting while I watch a video, especially with themes that use animated progressbar. Perhaps a GtkScale would be better suited for this.

2: The whole player and the GtkNotebooks in the preferences could use a little padding around them, maybe like 4px or something?

Great app! - Jan 08 2009

There's one problem. You seem to staticly assign a whitebackground, but not specify black text. I am using a dark theme, so I get grey text on a lite background. Could you please not make the background color white, and just let it pick up on your GTK theme?

Other than that, I really like the simplicity and usability of this app. - Jan 07 2009
