TIP:

You can use the Gnome-Color-Chooser to modify the Theme.

If you have Excelsior 1.5.0+ you can also change the engine-options within Gnome-Color-Chooser

INSTALLATION:

Debian Systems

sudo apt-get install fakeroot dpkg-dev
( or: su -c "apt-get install fakeroot dpkg-dev")

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

This will - if you have all deps installed - generate a debian binary package, install it via:

cd .. && sudo dpkg -i excelsior*.deb
(or: cd .. && su -c "dpkg -i excelsior*.deb")

If you have built a package for SID, send it to me, so that I can provide it here
(I'm using GTK 2.15 and PANGO 1.24 at the moment, so I can't provide a Package now)

Non-Debian Systems

./configure --prefix=/usr

make

su -c "make install" / sudo make install

Perhaps you'll like it, too.

Comments welcome.

changing the indicator color doesn't work in clearlooks.

Quote:Clearlooks Code:

if (widget->disabled)
{
border = &colors->shade[5];
dot = &colors->shade[6];
}
else
{
border = &colors->shade[6];
dot = &colors->text[0];
}


Quote:Excelsior Code:

if (widget->disabled)
{
border = &colors->shade[5];
dot = &colors->bg[GTK_STATE_INSENSITIVE];
}
else
{
border = &colors->shade[6];
dot = &colors->bg[GTK_STATE_SELECTED];
}


both in _draw_radiobutton and draw_checkbox

err... I meant not with bg[GTK_STATE_SELETECT].

text[NORMAL] works, but that doesn't makes sence there's no text.

Shouldn't the word "aurogen", be "autogen"? Otherwise, the compiling won't work!

Sometimes to acheive the look you want the gtkrc isn't enough. ;)
