You can do it yourself.

Open a terminal, and type:
gedit .themes/MurrinaFancySky/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Scroll down until you get to: engine "murrine"

Then remove the # in front of this line (do not remove the 2nd one):
# scrollbar_color = "#5598d7" # deepsky

Then reload the theme and you'll have blue scrollbars.

If you do not use MurrinaFancySky, replace that with the theme you use. - Jan 16 2007
I like the idea, but it doesn't look pretty without modifying some other things of the theme. And since this is a Clearlooks port, I do not want the theme to become something totally else.

Maybe I do something with it in the future.

But, I've made a striped and a gradient panel background image, so you'll be able to match it with the menubarstyle you like. It will come with the next release. - Jan 16 2007
Ow, I guess you meant something else right?

Open the gtkrc file located in my themes folder, scroll down a little bit (line 49 here), and change this:

menubarstyle = 2

to

menubarstyle = 3

Then reload the theme. There are more options there. You can also use the Murrine Configurator to change these things. - Jan 10 2007

Download that image and replace it with the ones located in the folder of my themes.

/home/`whoami`/.themes/MurrinaFancyAncient/gtk-2.0/panel_bg.png for example.

I only rotated the image 180 degrees. I did it because it fits better with the new glaze style I used. - Jan 10 2007

Hmm, I don't know then.

You could try to recompile it again, maybe there are some errors in the output or something.

You could also try to edit the gtkrc file of a theme that works, and put some of the new options in there (see the changelog of the murrine engine).

Just to make sure, I downloaded my themepack, removed my themes from my .themes folder and copied the downloaded ones into it, and it works fine. So there must be something wrong with the engine on your side. Otherwise contact Cimi about the problem. (the creator of the engine)

Did you try to restart X?

When I installed the new engine it didn't 'understand' the new options with the oldskool ugly theme as a result.When I removed the new options the theme worked again. It seemed like it just had the old engine loaded in its memory or something. So it doesn't know what to do with the new options. - Jan 06 2007
It is nice to hear you like it and that it is working great on Xfce.

I actually want more colors! but it has to match the gnome 2.16 icons (all colors until now are based upon them) and it is hard to find more matching colors which work well with the rest of the theme.

And also thanks to the creators of Clearlooks and the icons. - Nov 16 2006
I'm glad you like it.

It's the main reason I started this, I love Clearlooks too (both new and old), but I wanted something more glassier (shinier), and I couldn't find a nice Emerald theme to fit with the orignial Clearlooks theme - so I decided to make my own stuff.

I chose Murrine for it's speed and for the glassy look. - Nov 16 2006
Hmm, I especially picked the 'darker' clear colors to prevend non readable fonts, so here (on my screen) it looks readable.(That's why yellow didnt work btw :P)

If you do not want that font to be white but black, edit this file:

MurrinaFancyClearlooksGrass/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Go to line 144 where you find this:


style "theme-progressbar" = "theme-wide"
{
xthickness = 1
ythickness = 1
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#ffffff" # white
}


And comment out the fg[PRELIGHT] line like this:


style "theme-progressbar" = "theme-wide"
{
xthickness = 1
ythickness = 1
# fg[PRELIGHT] = "#ffffff" # white
}


Then save the file and reload the theme. Now the font on the progressbar should be black. - Nov 16 2006
