Geramik *and* ThinGeramik GTK Themes

GTK1 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net

1
5.0
Description:

GTK theme *and* engine intended to make GTK applications have a similar look
to the Keramik KDE style.

The theme, and pixmaps within, are based upon the alpha release of Keramik_GTK
by Goamaus. However, most pixmaps have been re-created, and/or modified.

Geramik requires QtPixmap >=0.26 (QtPixmap is no longer included in the Geramik archive. Get QtPixmap from http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=7043)

Screenshot 2 is of Mandrake's diskdrake - showing the recolouring of buttons.

To install:

tar zxvf Geramik-0.23.tar.gz
cd Geramik-0.23
./configure
make
make install (as root)

...then copy /usr/share/themes/Geramik/gtk/gtkrc to either /etc/gtk/gtkrc or ~/.gtkrc

...or for GTK2, copy
/usr/share/themes/Geramik/gtk-2.0/gtkrc to either /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc or ~/.gtkrc-2.0

0.27
----
1. Fix ThinGeramik horizontal scrollbar thumb.

0.26
----
1. Add "ThinGeramik" - GTK equivalent of ThinKeramik. This is the 1st version,
so will probably have some errors. Note: Menus in GTK2 apps will be the window
colour - can't figure out how to make this different!

(NOTE: *Requires* QtPixmap >= 0.26)

Hi!

I really like thsi theme, unfortunatelly the colors and widgets does not match exactly. I use the Keramik theme for kde3.0 downloaded here from kdelook.org. Here is a screenshot of what i am talking about:

what do i do wrong?..:) On shots i can see pretty similar color schemes for gtk & kde apps.

Thanks for your help!

You're using an old verion of Keramik. Geramik is designed/copied from the latest CVS version of Keramik.

Do you know how to change the icons? Maybe only for the next versions of GTK?
Gnome usability has different sets of icons. Is it usable today or depends on CVS gnome-GTK?

It would be nice to have crystal icons in GTK apps too.

How about merging Light V3 and Raleigh?

They are pretty similar already, and there are lots of people who would like consistency who are not fans of eye candy.

This would be wonderful. At home I like to use the Keramik/Geramik themes, but at work I like the clean utilitarian look and feel of Light V3. A GTK theme that used my colors and fonts from KDE, and matched Light V3 would be killer! Thanks.

Are there any plans on releasing a GTK2 theme of geramik? or would the port be too difficult.

Yeah - I'm working on this. I've got a non-coloured (i.e. grey-scale) version working. Just need to figure out how to apply colours to GdkPixbuf's...

I'm sorry but your new Versions doesn't work with any GTK2 App :(

But for GTK 1.x Apps it really looks great and i looking forward to see a great gtk2 Version too ;)

Great Work, keep on going!

Well it works for me using the gtk-demo that comes qith the GTK2 tar ball, and junkie (the 1st GTK2 app I could find to do a quick test on).

Are you sure your ./configure found your GTK2 installation? Has the library been created? Did you install gtkrc-2.0 correctly???

The main problem with the GTK2 port is that menus are not being coloured correctly - this has been repoted by other users (so it must work).

hmmm, it looks fine, but eats my default
gtk font. When I run gimp with .gtkrc, all slovak
characters (iso-8859-2 charset) are okay, but
when I put in the gtkrc from this style, it gets applied but the fonts
are screwed up (some weird iso-8859-1 font). When
I do rm -f .gtkrc, they are okay again.

To make the font match KDE's I manually set GTK's font, but don't specify the encoding - as .kderc doesn't list an encoding. I'll try to figure out which encoding to use via Gtk - this should then solve your problems.

As a quick hack - you can edit qtpixmap_main.c:

Look for the line:

char *format="-%s-%s-%s-%s-*-*-*-%d-*-*-%s-*-*-*"

and change to:

char *format="-%s-%s-%s-%s-*-*-*-%d-*-*-%s-*-iso8895-2"

...this should solve the problem for now.

...but gtkrc is already generated from gtkrc-template - I replace "pixmap_path" and "module_path" with where the theme will be installed. Therefore, there should be no problem.

How would I use gtkrc.in?

Ah, sorry. I see now that it is
generated. However it is not
generated again when you run
configure the second time (or later),
which was why I thought it had not
been generated the first time...
lots a generated in that paragraph, lol

So I would suggest adding gtkrc to be removed when doing clean
*bit unsure which target*
and possibly adding a dependency
on Makefile so that it will be regenerated after a configure.
ie.
gtkrc: gtkrc-template Makefile
cat gtkrc-template | sed s:DATA_DIR:$(datadir):g | sed s:LIB_DIR:$(libdir):g > gtkrc

"The first time" is unclear what it actually refers to (I meant the
the first time I posted) so change to

which was why I thought it had not
been generated when I posted the comment.

Ok, tried this gtk theme 0.4, not 100%match but lots better when
trying to match running gtk apps with kde.
In order to install it without being root, use ./configure --prefix=/path/to/dir/you/have/access
and then modify pixmap_path and
module_path to point there ie change /usr/local there to your path.
To author [low prio]:
If you make gtkrc a file that will change path when you do a make, ie use a gtkrc.in template file to make gtkrc, then you do not need to make
that change manually.

I downloaded and installed Geramik from kde-look.org however I seem unable to use it.

The instructions say:

Open the KDE-Menu an start the Control Center
Select "Look and Feel" and "Style"
Click on the "Import GTK theme" button and install your new theme
Select your theme
Click "Apply"

However there is no "Import GTK theme" button. I also notice that in my home directory there is a file called ~/.gtkrc-kde that states:

# If you do not want KDE to override your GTK settings, select
# Look and Feel/Styles in the control center and disable the checkbox
# "Apply fonts and colors to non-KDE apps"


Again, there is no checkbox "Apply fonts and colors to non-KDE apps".

Can Anyone help???

This is a great theme. I use Keramik in KDE and have always hated the look of Gimp and Gaim. Not now! The only thing I need now is a Keramik theme for Mozilla... hmm...

If you use Mozilla 1.2 - selecting the "Classic" theme will cause mozilla to use the native widgets on the platform its running on. i.e. on Linux it'll use GTK - and whetever theme GTK is using.

after somebody had a heart and created a Suse 8.1 rpm, I finally got it to run. Looks really good and I am proud to have supplied the basics ;-)

Keep on the good work.

Okay, I'm not versed in configuring and making. What prefix do I need for ./config for Suse 8.1 and what options for make? I assume 'make install' is all I need for the finaly step?

By the way, thank you!
