Description:

This theme requires Murrine 0.98 or Murrine from git.

Do not install this theme using Gnome's appearance properties dialog! Untar it manually to ~/.themes or /usr/share/themes. Otherwise, the Flow-Common folder will not be included, and it is absolutely required.

When upgrading to Flow 2.0, completely remove the old version first in order to minimize clutter. A bunch of modules were moved around, so Flow-Common will end up looking very messy if you don't.

To flow means to move as a fluid from one position to another, or to move or match smoothly, gracefully, or continuously. This theme does all of the above.

This theme is based on the Murrine version of Shiki-Colors by perfectska04. It has evolved greatly from Shiki-Colors, in many ways, but is still designed to work with Gnome-Colors. I thank perfectska04 for his excellent work on the entire Gnome-Colors suite.

There are two main features to this theme. The first is its general appearance, which is on par with beautiful engines like Equinox. The second and main feature is its sheer customizability: this theme is completely modular. The meat of the theme is specified in .rc files. The gtkrc file, in addition to color scheme, icon size, and general gtk option definitions, includes these modules. This means that you can enable and disable a certain feature or customization with nothing more than the addition or removal of a single #.

The following customizations are available as of the current version:
- Smooth or glossy buttons, with the option to invert the gradient
- Smooth or glossy selected color items (progress bars, check/radio boxes), also with the option to invert the gradient
- Smooth or glossy menu items, also with the option to invert the gradient
- Standard or inverted gradient for selected treeview items
- Three shapes for sliders: pill-shaped with handle, bullet-shaped with no handle, or that diagononal bottom dealie they're using in Ubuntu's Light themes.
- Two scrollbar options: faded trough to create the illusion of connectivity, or the scrollbars right out of Elementary! Thanks to Dan Rabbit for creating the Elementary theme and open sourcing it!
- Normal, light, dark, or selected color panels
- Blended, gradient, light, dark, or selected color menus
- Popup menus using the base color, ala Mac OS.
- Blended, gradient, light, dark, or selected color toolbars
- Normal, dark, or selected color window decorations, as well as the option to replace the selected colors with normal colors
- Bold text for panel menus
- Enhancements to xfdesktop
- Enhancements to xfce4-panel
- Thunar-Elementary (requires modified Thunar, though, and is thus disabled by default)

This theme includes all of the Shiki color schemes in Shiki-style configurations, as well as two additional ones: Sublime, a teal one, and Aqua, using an ArchLinux shade of blue. :P It also includes a replacement for Ubuntu's Radiance theme with the Radiance colors, and a version of that with a teal selection color called Seafoam. Two other experimental themes are included, Flow-Element, which imitates Elementary, and Flow-Shade, a dark theme.

It also includes a userChrome.css that you can use in Firefox and Thunderbird to make it fit in better. Or if you're more comfortable using Stylish, you can use this userstyle: http://userstyles.org/styles/37710?r=1286044648

The Gnome-Sublime and Gnome-Light icon themes recommended by Flow-Sublime, Flow-Seafoam, and Flow-Radiance can be downloaded here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11745544/gnome-sublime-light.tgz

I do need a hand for something, if anyone's looking to help. I don't have Nautilus. I don't want Nautilus. So if anyone would be so kind as to create a Nautilus-Elementary module, it will be included in the next version of Flow. And if you want to make a module for another application, send it my way! Any other proposed improvements to the theme will be considered for inclusion as well.




Changelog:

2.0:
- Many visual improvements to the theme, aiming for a look that imitates Equinox, but appears a little bit softer.
- Massively improved customizability. There are a lot more things that can be customized now.
- And all the things that were customizeable before now have more customizations.
- Created a Thunar-Elementary module which tries to imitate Nautilus-Elementary. Unfortunately, it will look really stupid unless you use a modified Thunar. See the module file for more info.

1.2:
- Changed the button style to a gradient.
- Reduced the relative brightness of tabs.
- Cleaned up the gtkrc code a little.

1.1:
- Now uses the focusstyle and expanderstyle options, so requires the very latest Murrine from git.
- Reduced the brightness of the theme-lighter style, and raised the overall brightness of each theme to compensate. After I looked at the old one for a while, the contrast between buttons and the other parts of the theme looked really glaring.
- Changed the name of the base color menu module, and made it look more Mac OS-esque.
- Lots of other little changes that lend to making the theme look better, such as reducing the engine contrast, and changing glazestyle to 5.
- I have a dropbox now, and that's where the Gnome-Sublime and Gnome-Light icon themes are now located.

1.0.3:
- Commented out the useless cellstyle setting in theme-default.rc to increase compatibility with earlier murrine revisions.

1.0.2:
- Re-archived and re-uploaded all archives. They should actually work now. ;)
- Clarified directions.

1.0.1:
- Changed icon host to MediaFire. 2shared is terrible.

1.0:
- Initial release

Superb themes! But the download link opens the main GTKRC file in Firefox. Can you repackage and reupload? Thanks! This is amazing work, which is why I'm so excited and can't wait for the working link! Thanks for the art!

If you're talking about the Arch icon I'm using for my main menu button, that's in the archlinux-artwork package. :)

 Not Rendering Correctly..

I read that you said 0.90.3 is not the latest version of gtk-murrine-engine, but that is the latest version that I can find on the Murrine website (including git.)

If this is not the latest, where/how do I download the latest?

Your theme extracts fine, but does not render correctly on my Lucid machine. Instead, I get the theme that shows up for the root user when a theme is used from a different users home/.themes folder.

Never-mind, I just found it by looking at gtkrc and comment out custom-toolbars-light part.
Other question: Could color of gnome-panel be changed according to skin's color? Thanks.

Yeah, if you want to enable or disable a certain module, all it takes is commenting or uncommenting. If you just wanted to change the color of the dark parts of the theme... well, I don't think GNOME's appearance properties can change the symbolic colors I use. You can change them in the gtkrc, though. That's how XFCE users have to do it for every color of the theme. ;)

dark_bg_color and dark_fg_color control what colors the dark parts of the theme are. The frame_color and inactive_frame_color ones are specific to Chrome.

So. When you ask about changing the color of the gnome panel according to the skin's color... which color are you talking about? If you disable the dark panel module, it will be the bg_color. If you want the color of the panel to be the selected_bg_color, that's not supported yet. But assuming you're not using any dark widgets in your customized theme, you can just change the dark colors to whatever you want to use and turn on the dark panel module.

I usually use Flow with Fibrous [1] metacity theme, which can adjust its color according to color define of the gtk theme, so I asked. I don't mean to manually adjust color of the gnome panel, I mean could color of the gnome panel automatically match color of your theme.
Thanks for your reply.

I think I have an idea what you're trying to ask. Fibrous uses the theme's selected background color for its decorations. Since you've turned off the dark menu, you ought to comment all of the decoration modules while you're at it. The decoration modules' purpose is to make decorations blend with the menu bar. It shouldn't affect fibrous, but might as well be safe.

Anyways, as for what you're trying to ask. Do you want the panels to match your window decorations? I could make a module for that pretty easily for the next release.
