*I am currently working on a new theme based on this one, except that it is a Dark-theme with steel and carbon-fiber stylings. I am looking for BETA-testers to help debug it. Check out this link for the DeLorean_Noir Theme: http://fav.me/d4kltn2. Thanks, jo-shva/aka killhellokitty*GTK3 gtk-engine-unico-1.0.1 or newer Stable
**IMPORTANT, please read the install**
As of vers. 1.5.1, This is the DeLorean_Mono Themes. It includes 3 themes: DeLorean_Mono -a brushed/hammered-steel, DeLorean_Alu -a brushed aluminum, and DeLorean_Scratched - a scrated/keyed steel. The START.sh script inside the DeLorean-1.5.1 folder builds all three themes at once.
As of vers. 1.5.0, the textured images used for widgets backgrounds, menu-bars, etc... are generated with a small bash-script for the dimensions of your monitor.
***This theme will look like Windows95(if it works at all) if you do not run the START.sh!***
If you have previously installed DeLorean_Mono, please remove the older version from your computer before upgrading.
GTK2 gtk-engine-murrine 0.98.1.1 or newer
GTK2 pixbuf-engine or the gtk(2)-engines package
GTK3 gtk3-3.2.0 or newer installed
*the actual names of these packages may vary from distro to distro
Download: DeLorean-1.5.1, and un-zip the package into the folder of your choice.
Open: DeLorean-1.5.1 Folder. You will find 3 folders and the START.sh script.
Make sure START.sh is executable. (Right click on it and select "properties" from the menu. Open the "permissions" tab. And at the bottom make sure "Allow executing as a program" is checked.
Double-Click on the START.sh script.
A pop up window will ask "Do you want to run "START.sh", or display its contents?"
Select: "Run in Terminal"
Follow the directions in terminal to set-up DeLorean Themes
Terminal: When the Terminal screen pops up, the first thing it will ask you is for your monitors screen dimensions in pixels.
The script will print out the monitor dimensions it recieves by running: xdpyinfo | grep 'dimensions:' This should be accurate. Please note, if you have Dual-monitors use the dimensions of the Larger of the two.
Enter your monitors dimensions in pixels. For example, xdpyinfo says my monitors "dimensions: 1366x768 pixels (350x201 millimeters)" Therefore I enter "1366x768" without the quotes. 1366 bieng my monitors WIDTH and 768 being its HEIGHT.
Next it will ask for the number you entered for your monitors WIDTH and to enter x34 for its HEIGHT. Therefore I would enter "1366x34" without the quotes.
Next it will ask for your monitors WIDTH and to enter x32 for its HEIGHT.
Lastly it will ask for your monitors WIDTH and to enter x24 for its HEIGHT to build xfwm4.
You are done! Everything has been resized to fit your monitor.(
except Xfwm4 theme...hopefully I can figure out how to draw it with Imagemagick soon.) Hit ENTER to close the terminal.
After the terminal closes, you may install the 3 DeLoean Theme files: System-Wide /usr/share/themes or Per-User ~/.themes.
The START.sh script resizes and creates the textured background-images, menu-bar,xfwm4, and metacity themes.
*If you make a mistake when entering your information in terminal; no problem, just run START.sh again.
(This is my first Bash Script, so its a bit rough. If someone more experienced is willing to help me out with it, I would be greatfull. It'd be excellent if someone would help me turn the script into a Zenity Gui.)
DeLorean, Gtk3 & Gtk2 themes, with Metacity, Xfwm4, and OpenBox-3 Themes.
This theme is an experiment with placing a picture, texture, image as the background for all windows.
Comments are welcomed!!!
Please let me know about any bugs you may find.
I am working a matching Gnome-shell, and Unity themes.
Hope you enjoy the theme!
A black border appears when "Nautilus has 2 or more Tabs open and the Search-Button is depressed in the Toolbar." The border runs from the bottom of the Toolbar and raps back around and up from the Statusbar/or bottom edge of window. *** It seems to be an Error in GTK3. *** It repeats the error in either Unico or Adwaita Engines. I have noticed the same error in many other themes, the color of the border can be changed : Primary-Toolbar, under Border-Color. Unfortuanly that fix doesnt work when an Image-File is used for the Primary-Toolbar; the only color I can get is Black ;-(

11/01/11 - Changed Buttons-Active, Cleaned-up Gtk-Treeview-Rows, and a few other minor tweaks.
11/03/11 - Re-wrote GTK2 theme. It matches with Gtk3 pretty well. I still have changes to make to the Gtk2 theme, ie... Toolbar-Handles, Entry, Check-Radio, Side-bar-pcmanfm/Thunar. (I cleaned the Theme Folder, its now 2.5mb instead of 6.3mb).
11/04/11 - Fixed Handles in Gtk2 also added Frame-Shadows (Im not sure if i like them yet or not. It looks fine to me without them). Messed around with Entry in Gtk2 and pcmanfm, thunar.
11/07/11 - New Tabs/Notebook in Gtk2. Changed Entry, Combobox, Optionbox, and Shadows in Gtk2. Fixed Thunar and Pcmanfm, both look good and match the theme now(especially their location path bars). Many minor tweaks in Xfce Apps.

11/16/11 - Fixed Xfwm4 themes, now they build with the rest of the images. This is now DeLorean Theme, It includes 3 themes: DeLorean_Mono, DeLorean_Alu, and DeLorean_Scratched. All three are built with the START.sh script this reduces the need for multiple build scripts for each theme, as well as it reduces the packaged size from 26mb down to 4.5mb.
01-01-12 - Fixed aspect-ration with gtk2 and gtk3. Now they both scale the background image. Where as previously gtk2 croped and gtk3 scaled. Changed the start.sh script to crop the base images for individual screen dimensions. Before the base images were scaled.
