Atolm by SkiesOfAzel Atolm by SkiesOfAzel
Version 0.7.5 :

This theme is a collaboration between me and MonkeyMagico whose mock up was the initial inspiration behind Atolm.

You will need the murrine, pixbuf and equinox gtk engines to use this theme. The AwOken icon theme is also highly recommended as is Nautilus Elementary.


Installation :

PPA :

Make sure you have uninstalled any older versions of the theme before installing via ppa. For good measure type on a terminal :

rm -R ~/.themes/Atolm

to install the Equinox gtk engine (provided by Tiheum) :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox

to install Atolm :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install atolm-theme

to install the Atolm xfwm4 decorators :

sudo apt-get install atolm-xfwm4-decorators

to install the Atolm emerald decorator :

sudo apt-get install atolm-emerald-decorators

Manual Installation :

just extract the contents of the zip file somewhere and drag and drop the Atolm.tar.gz and Atolm-Squared.tar.gz to the Appearance Preferences window (again, make sure you have uninstalled any previous version first). You can also install the emerald theme via the Emerald Theme Manager.

Customization :

If you prefer the old tabs, edit the gtkrc file (found inside ~/.themes/Atolm/gtk-2.0/ or /usr/share/themes/Atolm/gtk-2.0/ if you have installed via ppa) and replace the line :
include "Styles/tabs1.rc"
with this:
include "Styles/tabs.rc"

If you don't use Nautilus Elementary, edit the gtkrc and make this line:
include "Apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"
look like this:
#include "Apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"

OpenOffice and most other Gtk apps now have a different base and text color than the rest of the theme. This is unavoidable if you want to have a usable OpenOffice. If you want to have a unified look, you can make all Gtk apps follow the same settings by setting the Input Boxes background color to 5C5C5C and the Input Boxes text color to ECECEC.

- Text color of the contact name on the pidgin messaging window fixed.

- Text color of the JDownloader exit dialog and progressbars fixed.

Nope, this theme does not work with LMDE. Everything just looks white -ish. I used the manual install. Too bad, I used this theme on my last laptop(Ubuntu).

This is by far my favorite theme, so I installed it when I am trying Ubuntu 11.04. But there seems to be some problem on the new Unity interface. The font on the top menu bar is almost invisible. Tried to tweak the config myself but failed. Any idea where should I look?

Hi, thanks for this really great theme.

I have one trouble with nautilus elementary on Ubuntu 10.10. When I use the extra pane view (F3) on list view, the list is displayed black on black.
I've searched if I can find a way to change the background but, unfortunately, I did not found any way. Is it possible ?

Thanks again for sharing this theme !

You probably need a newer version of the murrine engine. If you are using Ubuntu try :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementaryart/elementarydesktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine
