Hope GTK by 0rAX0 Hope GTK by 0rAX0
My very first GTK theme


About the theme

Hope is based on Ambiance, it started as a modification to match a nice Metacity theme (see the credits), then became an exercise to learn how to make GTK themes, and now we have this.



:bulletblue: Ambiance by Canonical(or someone who works there).
:bulletblue: Some code and elements from Elementary-GTK by :icondanrabbit:

:bulletblue: The metacity is Before Dawn by :iconebupof:

:bulletyellow: The wallpaper is C.O.L.D by :icon0rax0:
:bulletyellow: The icons are a mix of:

:bulletyellow: Faenza by :icontiheum:
:bulletyellow: Elementary by :icondanrabbit:
:bulletyellow: Ubuntu-mono by Canonical

:bulletorange: Known Issues:

:bulletorange: The text in Firefox's Awesomebar is unreadable.
:bulletorange: The panel backgrounds are inconsistent.
:bulletorange: The theme asks for an unavailable icon theme.

:bulletgreen: Fixed Issues:

:bulletgreen: The metacity theme is working fine now.
:bulletgreen: The links color in blue instead of orange.
:bulletgreen: There is a tar.gz file inside, you can drag and drop in the Appearance window.

Great theme but I always get the message

~/.themes/Hope/gtk-2.0/apps/gnome-panel.rc:121: error: unexpected character `\', expected string constant

Any ideas?

You didn't happen to modify the file, did you? Because I don't see anything out of the usual. And I can't test this since it's a GTK2 theme.

I seem to have a problem with the controls of your theme.
I have Gnome 2 and Murrine installed.
I'm running Debian Squeeze.
Here's a screenshot: [link]
Any clue on how to fix this?

I'm sorry, I don't have GNOME 2 anymore, so I can't test this. I guess you have a too old or too new Murrine. Not sure though.
