Description:

VERSION 1.4.1
It has come to my attention that some older versions of the pixmap engine (like the one found in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx) have a bug that causes severe visual glitches when transparency is used in menubars. If your menubars and panel indicators are messed up, go to the Fixes page of the Orta Settings Manager and check the option "Select this if your menus and panel have visual glitches". This will also remove transparency from the Gnome Menu Bar applet, so if you use this applet with the flat panel option to make the panel transparent, you are out of luck.


INSTALLATION :

Ubuntu PPA :

Please make absolutely sure you have removed any previous instances of the theme before installing via ppa.

To add the ppa and install the theme and the settings manager, type this on a terminal :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install orta-theme

To install the emerald decorators :

sudo apt-get install orta-emerald-decorators

To install the Xfwm4 decorators :

sudo apt-get install orta-xfwm4-decorators

You can find the Orta Settings Manager under the Preferences category of your Main Menu.

Manual Installation :

Extract the extractme.tar.gz archive that you find inside the zip, to a folder of your choosing. Inside, you will find the theme (Orta.tar.gz) and additional decorators (Orta-Squared.tar.gz and Orta-Old.tar.gz) along with some folders. First, right click on OrtaSettingsManager.py and make sure that the "Allow executing file as program" option is checked. Run it and press the uninstall button to remove any old versions of Orta from your system. You can install the theme and decorators manually by dragging and dropping them to the Gnome Appearance Preferences window, or you can use the installer on the Orta Settings Manager (recommended if you want to install for all users including root). Now you can go through the various tabs of the Settings Manager and setup the theme according to your preferences. When you are done click the save button. Make sure you select another theme on the Appearance Preferences dialog that pops up, and then go back to Orta in order to apply your changes.

Leave the orta folder alone, it includes the Orta Settings Manager files .

Inside the Chromium folder, you will find a Chromium theme and different sizes of scrollbars to install.

Inside the Awn folder you will find an Avant Window Navigator lucido style. There are also 5 emerald themes inside the emerald folder.

LICENCE :

The pixmaps are licensed under the Creative Commons non commercial share alike license, and the code under GPL v3. I've also included the original xcf sources of the pixmaps so that anyone can easily modify the theme to his/hers preferences.




Changelog:

Fixes:

- Synaptic fix for gtk2-engines-pixbuf version 2.20 and older.

- Main menu icon size reverted to 22.

Lol, don't you worry, you will be able to do it with the next version which is close to release. i am also supporting the regular nautilus, so you shouldn't have any major problems with a vanilla installation. Sorry for the inconvenience, i should have been more careful with testing before i released it.

Yes, please fix it for lucid, because not all of my computers have maverick and I want your theme in all of them :D

By the way, do you use emesene? it looks a bit weird when sending or receiving files, I can't add a screenshot right now but I'll do it later.

I've tested it before releasing the theme (i've actually fixed some bugs with shadows) but i hadn't tried sending a file. I did this now, and the app stopped responding, so if you can, send me a screenshot.

The only thing i consciously copied from Bespin were the tabs. That doesn't mean i wasn't influenced by it on an unconscious level, but i've only used it for a day many months ago. I think Oxygen was probably a bigger influence since i've used it for months.

Still, i think that any comparison to Bespin is flattering, since it's an extremely well made theme.

The solution is simple, go to nautilus elementary preferences -> tweaks and select show live breadcrumbs.

 An issue, a wish & compliments

 
 by shemz on: Nov 8 2010

This is a really cool theme. Something to show kde folks the power of gtk. :D

Would it be possible to have window manager themes as well, for xfwm and preferably openbox as well.

Also there is some problem with QT apps. The tabs show dark background, and so does the tab text. So its a little difficult to read the tab names. Screenshots attached are that of Lyx and Fatrat which are both QT apps and showing this inconsistency.

Other than that, this theme sure did bring back some beautiful memories of kde, may be more beautiful than oxygen theme at the least, and of course without any other nonsense that kde ships along. ;) Cheers!

I can't promise anything about xfwm and openbox support, my free time is very very limited, and it will only get worse from now on. I really do hope that more people step up to help complete Orta with various add-ons.

With that out of the way though, i am sure that in the next couple of days, you and allot of other people are going to be very, very happy ;).

Lol , yes, a friend of mine made the initial toplevel window and the notebook in Glade, in order to help me speed things up. He also obviously didn't use a spellchecker :P. The app i released is just i little taste of what i initially had in mind, but in life you can't always do what you want. Perhaps during the Christmas holidays i will have enough time to move Orta closer to my vision.
