Equinox GTK Engine

Equinox GTK Engine

Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  225744
Submitted:  Mar 20 2010
Updated:  Apr 27 2011


A heavily modified version of the beautiful Aurora engine (1.4). Thanks to his author.

IMPORTANT! Since version 1.40, the file below contains only the engine source. You can download themes (both GTK and Metacity) from the second and third links :
- The five Equinox Evolution themes are new offical ones and will get some updates in the future. Only these themes are now included in the theme package available from the Launchpad PPA
- The original themes are no longer maintained (but still usable).

Engine installation

First of all, make sure you have installed the GTK+ library development files (libgtk2.0-dev on Debian/Ubuntu, gtk2-devel on Fedora) with your favourite package manager.

Then to compile the Equinox engine, extract the corresponding archive in your home folder. In the new directory, run the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation

On Fedora 64 bits (and perhaps other distribs), compilation don't work with the options above. You must run:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-animation

Finally, run this command as root:
make install

Themes installation

To install the themes, extract the content of the other archive in your ~/.themes.

You can easily change the colour used for selected items or tooltips in Appearance preferences.

To fix the issue with the text of selected menu items in Firefox and Thunderbird, copy the userChrome.css in both ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/ and ~/.thunderbird/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/

To use the Equinox Evolution theme with Chromium or Google Chrome, open the browser and drag the CRX file (provided in the themes archive) into the address bar. In applications options, don't forget to enable the display of Metacity borders.

Icon theme
A (still uncomplete) version of Faenza icon theme is now available. Follow the link a the bottom of this page.

 Issues with some things

I love your engine, but it has problems with some windows. Take a look below:


As you can see, the window is quite empty. But using radiance theme, the same window appears like this:


Sincerely, I don't know why it happens, and I don't know what gtk elements are used inside that window, but can you solve it? It's quite difficult changing gtk theme every time I must use that graphical tool.. :(

Thanks a lot! :)

Very nice work!!!

This is a good combination:

+Ordinary Metacity (Window Manager)
+Feanza (Icon Set)
+Equinox (GTK2 Engine)

This Theme should be default in the next ubuntu version (11.4)

It's Docky.

You can certainly install it on your Debian from the development PPA: http://launchpad.net/~docky-core/+archive/ppa.
