Clearlooks Revamp 0.45 by zentili Clearlooks Revamp 0.45 by zentili
After a so long and slow work, here we go.
This version is very full of changes and improvements everywhere, I really can't list them all here, just know that every (and i mean *every*) aspect of the gui has been considered, so enjoy it. Keep in mind that, by the way, it remains work in progress and this 0.45 version (that is already the biggest release by now) will lead to the 0.5 "stable" release, don't know when :)

Gtk and Metacity theme plus a wallpaper are included in the archive, choose between normal and classic nautilus version (according to what you have installed on system) and install it by drag and dropping it on the system appreance applet.

Google Chrome/Chromium theme to come soon.

This theme is DYING for a gtk3 port! PLEASE consider it! It's a beautiful theme and is much nicer than Adwaita.

I stumbled upon your theme and I really love it. I like the up-arrow
and down-arrow kept together and the only improvement that I would like to see is to have the up-arrow/down-arrow "box" at BOTH ends of the scrollbar. This was something I was able to do on my old Mac and I really found it convenient. Excellent work, keep at it please!

Doubt: Why did you ditch 1. the blue tones and change them to a gray? 2. the window's icon and changed it to an arrow? My guess for both: cleanliness.

well, i downloaded and installed it from gnome-looks.org: the good part is that the gtk and metacity looks great (as expected). What I didn't expect is that this theme depends on some icon theme called "elementary-monochrome" which is nowhere to be found... too bad!

I love this theme. I went into the gtkrc file and changed the font to 8 (9 is too big.) Some buttons are out of place (see attached screenshot) How do I fix this?

That classic nautilus looks awesome! That's real skill. I've been trying to style nautilus like that forever.

+1 It's a revamp of ClearLooks not some OS X rip off

Otherwise it's a great theme.. been using it for a while and not bored yet!

Davvero bellissimo...a me il tema clearlooks è sempre molto piaciuto e questo restyling è eccellente!!

Oltre a ringraziarti ti lascio due appunti/suggerimenti:
- Hai mai pensato di utilizzare come icone di default le Faenza "Cupertino"? [link] Avendo questo tema tutti i box per le spunte quadrati (originalissimi, rispetto ai soliti noiosi cerchietti) le icone quadrate si sposano alla perfezione.
- Hai mai pensato di realizzare anche una versione con pannello scuro? Lasciando per il resto intatto il gtk...un po' come il tema equinox che unisce gtk chiaro e pannello scuro...scelta molto originale.

Davvero complimenti ancora!

I have to say I'm still amazed how beautiful this looks with globalmenu and the Ubuntu indicator-applets. The effect of some neatly pressed button is so far superior to other popular themes out there. I'm of course looking forward to the improvements of synaptic, checkboxes & radiobuttons, but jeez. I've not been as astounded since I first tried elementary. (and I sticked to that for more than a year... until I was told about clearlooks revamp!)

Hi there, amazing theme, one of the best I've seen.

I do have one questions though, where is the option to change the looks of the asterisks that look like hearts when you type in a password?

thanks :D

In the “Clearooks Revamp/gtk-2.0/gtkrc”, you should be able to find text reading “GtkEntry::invisible_char” in two places. Either delete these, or set the value to whatever character you deem appropriate.

I changed it to “0x2663”- the symbol for the “clubs” suit.

If you do want a fancy character, you can use the search on this website to find the right code:

I joined up just to comment on this, as I think it's very good (I've switched to using it), and I have a few things to say about it.

The first is this:
[link]

When an expander is displayed with a label (you'll find that one in the clock menu, I believe in English it reads "places" or "locations" or some such, I have no idea about Italian), the label appears divorced from the expander graphic. The actual expander graphic doesn't tolerate clicking, either- you have to click on the title to get it to work. This also appears on the update-manager, etc. You probably know about that, mind you.

The second is merely that it is impossible to tell the difference between an unchecked checkbox an unselected radio item.

The third is that I question the use of a cross in the checkbox, when most themes use a tick. Aren't these symbols considered opposites? I'm not as sure about this one, as crossing checkboxes is common when form-filling.

The fourth is that the handle on Qt toolbars looks ugly, whereas it does not when using other GTK themes such as Ambiance. I'm not sure if it is toolbar handles in general, or just for Qt applications.
[link]

You'll find that example in the program "Anki". This is probably just the Qt app manifestation of the toolbar handle bug that you already know about in Synaptic.

Anyway, this is a very, very good theme! The attention to detail is most impressive (I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up Rhythmbox and saw those little handle things on the search filters).

Thanks very much for this.

Hi, i'm very glad to see you bringing theese things to my attention, really thank you.

Except for the expander question, that i don't notice, i will work on every of your report, notably on the radio-check items question. In fact, i didn't want to release the theme now as i need to finish the radiobuttons graphic (as you noticed, it's the same of checkbuttons) but i'm going on holidays and decided to break it free for the moment, then update it all later.
Anyway, thank you again my friend, it's good to see that you appreciate my work :)

You need a recent version of Murrine (0.90.x is ok) and the Pixmap engine (i think it comes by default with GNOME), check if you have both of theese.

There's lots of Metacity themes you can download. Or you can use a different window decorator altogether!

This theme looks really good with Elementary borders, for example (though I stuck to the default).

Hi there. Looks great.

one question though: do you intend to make an Ubuntu PPA for it? That would probably be some work, but I think an aspect why the elementary theme's success is so big is because there's an easy way to install it and keep it up-to-date.
