Description:

This theme, is based on 2sev's Absolute. Initially, I made it for myself to use. I decided to release it afer many months.

It depends on murrine and metacity. In my setup, I'm using Faenza icon set.

Works with the murrine gtk engine that comes with Debian Squeeze and is compatible with all the newer versions. The idea was to have a sligtly moden looking alternative to the classic Clearlooks, but equally usable and easy looking.

NB: This theme is called "Luna" because, when I created it, I was using a wallpaper with a moon. It's not related to Elementary OS.

The differences between Absolute and this version:

- Removed some features in gtkrc that required the new versions of murrine engine. This version works with murrine 0.90.3.6, the one that comes with Debian Squeeze.
- Changed some colors and the iconset requred (now Faenza)
- Changed metacity theme to have the focused window title coloured as gtk selected_bg. This gives it a less modern look (no menubar-titlebar unification), but makes it easier to distinguish which window has the focus, expecially whith focus following, looks good even without composing, and the user can change it's colour.
- Changed the window buttons to let them adapt to the different colours
- The menu background is white, like in clearlooks.
- Buttons and menu items are more squared.
- Maybe something else that I can't remember...

 Titlebar with color is the best

Thank you, thank you & thank you.

For putting the color on the tiblebar and make it configurable. This is the only gripe I had about the original absolute. I thought the author didn't have enough skills to make color titlebar but now I learn from your comment that it was intentional.

One thing I would like you to review in Absolute Luna. Nautilus, left pane, folder tree. The triangle icon used for expand/collpase the parent folder is really too big. Can you male it smaller? Or may be use the +/- icon instead?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks ;)

I just changed some lines in the metacity-theme-1.xml file. It was easy (Look at the original version and mine: there are very few changes). Most modern themes have that menu-titlebar unified look, which is very nice, but makes it hard to distinguish which window have the focus.

I just tried to change the GtkTreeView::expander-size from 14 pixels to 12. You are right. It looks better. But I think that smaller than this, would make it hard to click.
I don't know how to change it to the +/- icon... However, I prefer the arrows. :)

This is EXACTLY why I like your them better (window having focus has a color titlebar). In my opinion, the modern GUI with unified color for titlebar menu, hiding the scrollbar, putting +/-/close on the left, global menu, etc. are just gimmicks which have no real productivity improvement.

If you download it again, you'll find the new version with GtkTreeView::expander-size = 12 ;)

 Triangle Icon, not enough contrast in task bar

 
 by Triceratops on: Oct 1 2011
 
Score 63%

Thanks for the update. The new triangle icon is still too big. It stands out a little bit too much compared to the folder beside it.

Can you have a look at this theme: Lambda-Mod 0.4 http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lambda-Mod?content=141058

It has a smaller triangle icon which I think is well balanced.

Regarding the taskbar in Absolute Luna, I think some improvements might be possible:

- Set panel size to 36 pixels. Absolute Luna, the clock displays Date & Time in one single line. This take more space. Have a look at Lambda Mod 0.4, it can display Date & Time in two lines.

-There is not enough contrast between active / inactive tasks.

I hope these comments makes sense. Looking forward to the update.

I was wrong with the expanders. It is possible to click them even outside the arrow icon. Making them 8 pixels size, like in Lambda-Mod, works normally.

I changed the ACTIVE colour status of the buttons. Now the selected task stands out better. Thank you, this was a good point.

Regarding the panel, maybe, I didn't understood what you mean. You can change the layout of the date applet with a trick in gconf-editor: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/10/how-to-customize-the-clock-applet-in-ubuntu/
In the Lambda-Mod screenshots, he uses a different panel, named Talika: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/finally-ubuntu-ppa-for-talika-gnome.html

You could also use a smaller font, but I prefer the classic Dejavu sans 10, for better readability.

Now I'll upload the new version with smaller arrows and more contrast on the selected buttons. ;-)

 Taskbar: No text wrapping on Clock display

 
 by Triceratops on: Oct 1 2011
 
Score 50%

Hi,

Here is a screenshot showing a comparison of the clock display: http://i56.tinypic.com/vqqv74.jpg

Top is AbsoluteLuna, Bottom is LambdaMod 0.4
Panel size = 36 pixels.

The Application Font has no effects. I have reduced the font size to a small value, I see the display shrinked but it is still on 1 line with AbsoluteLuna. There is no change in the clock settings when I switched from one theme to the other. So the text wrapping is probably something coded in the theme settings. Hope you can figure that out.

I'll try to figure it out in the gtkrc of Lambda Mod. I hope this is not related to some features in the newer versions of murrine.

I looked through all the gtrkrc, but I can't really find where this trick is done...
Do you know some other theme that do this?

Ok. I found it. It's not related to any setting of the theme. It works alredy in every theme. Try to set a smaller font and a bigger panel.

For example:

Oh wow, that's true. Increase panel size to 48 or setting Application Font to 6 did wrap the text in the Clock applet. This looks weird however (unacceptably small text or panel larger than necessary).

But that doesn't explain why themes like MintX, LambdaMod, FusionBlue, Orta know how to wrap the Clock text without me changing anything in Panel size (36 pix) et Application Font (Ubuntu 11 or 10). May be they redraw the panel?

I think it could be related to the border thickness of the buttons.

You could use this trick, to change the clock applet font alone.

I'm using LinuxMint 11 x64. Folllowed instructions in the link you gave. Set Custom format to use the "stacked" version. Has no effect. The Clock still displays in 1 single line.

I give up. It's not big deal, that consumes a little bit the space in the panel but it's Ok. Sorry for all the troubles and thanks for taking the time to help me.
