It's been awhile now that I'm away from Gnome desktop and I'd like to know how these themes still fare in comparison with new Gnome eyecandy?

Anyone still uses them?

How wel do they work on your distributions?

Thanks. - May 14 2010
Unfortunatelly you'll have to upgrade to at least 0.18 (I think) to get this latest version to work. I can send you older release if you cannot upgrade.

Just let me know. - Jul 27 2006
You don't need gdesklets, just plain gnome-panel. Here, try this:

Go to top gnome panel -> right click -> new panel. Go to newly created panel -> right click > propertes.

Choose orientation bottom then: turn off expand, turn on autohide, turn on "show hide buttons", turn off "arrows on hide buttons", ste size 48. Go to background tab choose solid color and tweak transparency to your liking.

Now this is important: on yor newly crated panel put the following applets:
- any launchers you prefer or use frequently
- desktop swithcer applet
- trash launcher
- desktop button

Of course, use OSX icons.

Hope it helps. - Jul 20 2006
They are plain old OSX icons available here on gnomelook. Here:

Metacity buttons:
Start gconf-editor from console.

Or on ubuntu: go to:
Applications->System tools->Configuration editor

when gconf is started go to:
apps->metacity->general

and into button_layout field put the following values:

close,minimize,maximize:menu

There is the way but I don't know yet how exactly to do it.

No. All the icons and buttons that this theme provides are different from Apple's icons and are made for this or similar GPL licensed themes that this theme is built on.

If you are referring on icon pack that is seen on the screenshots, that icon pack is separate package and is not related to T-ish in any way other than that I suggest it to be used with T-ish.

Regards, - Jul 20 2009
It seems there has heen some server problems, I tested it now and it works ok. - Aug 01 2007
Dowload T-ish to desktop. Right click on it and choose extract here. A folder should appear.

Go into it, select all and choose copy. In file manager (Nautilus) choose show hidden files. Go to folder .themes in your home folder and paste into.

Or, you can simply start theme manager and drag downloaded file onto it, but in that case you'll have only one t-ish variation installed.

Hope it helps. - Jul 12 2007
Turn on "show hidden files" in Nautilus, go to the .themes folder and remove everything that have t-ish in its name.

Cheers, - Jul 09 2007
Can you send me your screenshot?

- Jul 04 2007
Hmm, it can be that on your distro there is different name for the package that provides this engine or that you don't have required repository enabled.

What is your distro, and which repositories did you enable? - Mar 29 2007
Thanks. :)

About your problem: my guess is that the "ugly" windows are being run as root user and as such are displaying the root user theme.

Log in as root, change the root default theme to t-ish, log out and log in again as your default user. Everything shall look t-ish from now on :)) - Mar 27 2007
Here is advice by eisenpm on: 02/07/2007,

I found out how to get the scroll bars working in edgy:

just install the package:

gtk2-engines-pixbuf

and restart the xserver. - Mar 26 2007
Of course you can use them, the theme is published under GPL license and icons are GPL-ed content.. - Mar 26 2007
It is ordinary gnome-panel vith specific configuration:

Go to top gnome panel -> right click -> new panel. Go to newly created panel -> right click > propertes.

Choose orientation bottom then: turn off expand, turn on autohide, turn on "show hide buttons", turn off "arrows on hide buttons", set the size 48. Go to background tab choose solid color and tweak transparency to your liking.

Now this is important: on yor newly crated panel put the following applets:
- any launchers you prefer or use frequently
- desktop swithcer applet
- trash launcher
- desktop button

I like murrine engine very much, but don't have plans to do the t-ish version for murrine. T-ish was made with clearlooks in mind. - Feb 15 2007
Thanks for the info and for the solution.

I just cannot find the time to upgrade to edgy so this info is much appreciated.

I'll post this to description section. - Feb 08 2007
Yes, it seems that there have been some changes in the gtk-engines in edgy... for scrollbars I was using pixmap engine, you should track which package offers pixmap gtk engine and install it...

I will look at this problem as soon as I find some spare computer where I can install edgy... for now though I'm restricted to dapper... - Jan 15 2007
Thanks,

The line is present only in ubuntulooks themes, clearlooks based themes are without the line. Ubuntulooks have this gradient menu so i found it better looking with line added. If you copy clearlooks part of configuration in .gtkrc to ubuntulooks gtkrc file you should lose the line.

The gradient: the first screenshot is done with compiz window manager running, hence the transparency. Others are done under Metacity. Install beryl or compiz and you'll have transparency. - Jan 11 2007
You'll need to have gtk2-engines, gtk2-engines-clearlooks and gtk2-engines-ubunutulooks.

Easiest way to do this is:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines gtk2-engines-clearlooks gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks

That should work.

Toni - Jan 07 2007

I'll try it and eventually include into next release. - Dec 14 2006

hmm... then the problem is in engine... Do you have pixmap-gtk engine installed?

And about thrash icon... It should appear that way when you add trash applet to the bar. The icon is from osx icon pack so I have no influence on it.

- Nov 21 2006
How did you install the theme? You have to manually extract the file to .themes folder in order to get all theme variations.

Then you have to choose aquastyle variation. - Nov 20 2006
Thank you :)),

Suggestions are always welcome.

I will test the theme with your buttons among friends around me.

If the review is positive I will include them as default, if test users say that they think current "active" buttons are better then there will be no change.

Let's trz it :))) - Nov 02 2006
Thank you for your feedback :))

Will take a look at your theme and comment there.

About error you mention I cannot replicate it, I guess it's resolution based.

Which screen reslution you are using?

Cheers, - Jul 12 2006
Thank you :))

I can probably do it. I'll try it when I can spare some time, test it a bit and if it will not affect overall performance I'll publish it.

Hi,

This is not cotrolled by emerald theme but by gtk2 theme t-ish pack.

Problem is probably solved by this:

if this doesn't help just look at the comments section under the T-ish Pack gtk2 theme. - Dec 22 2006
Beryl and emerald are usually available at http://www.beryl-project.org together with howto install.

However, there seems to be some hard drive failure at beryl site and you should wait a while.


- Nov 28 2006
Thank you,

It had always bothered me that I cannot make zero pixels borders with rounded edges.This had finally became possible with pixmap engines for emerald and compizthemer.

I'm glad your are happy with it. - Nov 07 2006

>Adding extra version with coloured file bar? (File, Edit ..)

>It sounds bad, but I see a better Tish theme with a bar similar, but not equal, to Rezlooks. A bar on its own style.

Well, actually I can see valid reasoning behind this idea. It will give more weight to the menubar which is good since gnome does not allow menus to be on the top of the screen.

However, I don't know If I'll be able to do it right. I'll try and see what comes out :))

>Finally: I don't love themes resembling mac, but yours are awesome.

Thanks. In fact I did those themes while both impressed and frustrated by mac themes. Tiger have so many good points but it annoys by inconsistency (one app is brushed, other is gray, the third is aqua). I believe a good gui has to be consistent and balanced. So I picked some ideas from tiger and did it my way.

Gnome on the other hand had engine that allowed consistency but it's mostly not elegant and streamlined enough, so I merged those two things... and to honest I'm pretty satisfied by results :)) - Nov 06 2006

Yes it is. But since I was not using pixmap engine I was not able to have a frame as thin as yours, and rounded borders at the same time.

About the other theme, I'll check. - Oct 12 2006
There was a problem with visible corners in latest compiz-quinn packages when window was above bright surface, but since I've migrated to beryl it's gone, so I think there is nothing wrong with your theme.

Btw, great work, it't goes well with T-ish for gnome :)) - Oct 11 2006

Hi,

I'm glad too see so many mods of my themes :))

I like your mod and would like to use it so here are two suggestions/requests:

1. Can you make it separate theme, so I don's have to overwrite original theme if I wish to use it?

2. Metacity does not blend seamlessly into gtk color on my laptop lcd, I think you should tweak metacity shading color.

That's about it :))

Yes I like it, especially the way how some of my gtk applications look.

However, there is a problem sometimes with fitting the icons into button background (eg. evolution's new button or install, details and save buttons in theme chooser). They are either to close to borders, or they are not aligned consistently etc.

It also bothers me that blue higlights are not of the same shade everywhere.

This is ruing otherwise neat and polished feeling of this theme.

Fix this and I may consider abandoning my themes, in favour of Samui :)) - Jun 22 2006

Thank you so much for maintaining and developing this icon set.

I just cannot see my themes without your icons. And I'm glad you went away from tango folders though, I know original OSX folders are crappy but their shape was somehow right, so you did good move.

Thanks once more. - May 16 2006

Heh-heh,

This is good point. Ratings have no point if all users/visitors cannot vote.

However, required feedback when voting is not bad idea, also some more detailed statistics about voting and ratings will be more than welcome I think. - May 14 2006
Well, to me it seems like there is some other balancing mechanism that brings the rates down automatically. I was watching top 15 gtk2 themes and saw that periodicaly (at approximately the same period) almost all themes go down for 1-3 percent so I concluded that votes are not the only thing that affects the rating. I may be wrong though :)) - May 13 2006

It seems to me that it would be really hard to make it look complete and harmonious. But that's maybe just because I don't like themes so dark.

However you could try it yourself. Just go to themes folder and try to change brush images.
