Divergence IV - "A New Hope" by jurialmunkey Divergence IV - "A New Hope" by jurialmunkey
Divergence IV - " A New Hope "
by jurialmunkey

Requires Murrine Engine > 0.98

INSTALLATION
I have removed the installer because too many people complained about it. Here are install instructions:

Extract the .zip to a folder
Open Appearance Preferences
Click "Install..."
Locate the folder you extracted the .zip to and select "A-New-Hope.tar.gz"

CUSTOMISATION
Open Nautilus
Press Ctrl+H to show hidden folders
Open ".themes"
Open "A-New-Hope"
Double Click customise.py

EMERALD (TRANSPARENCY)
To get transparency, you will need to install Compiz and Emerald. There are emerald themes included within the .zip file.
To make emerald stay default, go into CompizConfig Settings Manager > Window Decoration > and in the box next to "Command" enter: emerald --replace
Then hit ALT + F2 to get a run dialog and enter: emerald --replace


AWN - AVANT WINDOW NAVIGATOR
The AWN style used is called Lucido. There are themes in the .zip

KNOWN ISSUES
- Metacity can only be used with left sided buttons. (A right side version will come soon)
- Toolbar colours which are not dark make the breadcrumbs look ugly.
- Metacity only follows colour changes correctly with the A New Hope gtk (this is due to minor hack that had to be implemented in order for the colour changes to work. There is also a fixed colour version of the metacity which matches with Ambiance)
- Window title text sizes over 15pnt cause issues
- TESB colour changes do not change the colours of the rounded corners of the sidebar (this is due to pixmaps being used and unfortunately cannot be fixed)

Divergence IV - "A New Hope" by ~jurialmunkey - the suggester said: "Looks to me like someone has just broken the walls down. Beautiful and unusual color combination with simple window buttons together with little aero look. Favesome Gnome theme that should be in your pocket of Linux theme collection."

Mind if I use this for a Linux distribution I am developing? I can't say much about it over comments because it is in early stages, but I would love to use this as the default theme!

This flaw is not a problem on this theme, but a bug of compiz.

I've been using this since I first saw it, but I'm wondering; any chance we get a gtk3-port of this? Is seems more and more inevitable that I end up seeing gtk3 stuff on my desktop sooner or later :(

Disregard my last comment, I finally got it working after a few hours of installing packages. There's one thing I just can't get right. When I apply the theme without Emerald the border (which doesn't have transparency) looks correctly rounded, but when I turn on Emeraldand the transparency looks good there's something wrong with the window border, over the title the border seems blurry and looks 1 px down off where it's supposed to be.
If anyone has something on it I would appreciate it.
Thanks again for making this theme.

Hey there folks, I'm kinda new in this so I can't install the theme correctly. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04, I and I just want to know how to make it work like the one in the image. What's Emerald? And AWN?
I'm just asking because i've downloaded it and installed it but I just can't get it right.

Thanks to the creator for this awesome theme, and to everyone answering this.

I love this theme but I'm not getting it to work quite right. I have the latest version of Murrine and Emerald installed and I've tried emerald --replace plenty of times now, but the transparency does not work, nor does setting the title to be on the right side. I'm running Arch Linux with MATE right now.

I love this theme, however it doesn't work correctly. The window colors don't change. I always get this error in terminal, usually when dealing with nautilus.

/home/(user)/.themes/A-New-Hope/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:118: error: unexpected identifier `trough_border_shades', expected character `}'

What's going on?

Almost everything worksperfectly for me. However, in your screenshots the menu bar and toolbars are a dark charcoal color. Mine are a very bland grey. This is the only thing keeping my desktop from being gorgeous. Thanks in advance.

Where the theme is installed (usu. ~/.themes/A-New-Hope, but maybe something like /usr/share/themes/A-New-Hope) there is a file customise.py. Run that and select if you'd like dark tabs, scrollbars, menu panes, etc. Click save in the bottom left corner.

let me get it straight .....

in order for the theme to work :

1) you have used 3 awn panels
2)gnome panel is still on the top but it have invisible background(not expandable mode)
2.a) or gnome panel disabled and 4 awn panels used las one you did not picked style so it is clear ..... when you disabled gnome panel no right click action on desktop and no folders.....
3) background picture have additional black points on the corners

am i close to the solution :) ?

I'm so pissed off now bloody hell rrr, I just wrote a long neat email
explaining some features I would like to see in the gnome
linux I wrote my message in open office copied it closed it "do you
want to save,I click no control v into g mail and and get -blank
nothing rrr

okay so basically I talked about really liking gnome shell, I'm a new
user I thought it would be easy-er to find no click function on
activities if you put and triangle or half circle in the corner there.
I would also like to be able to navigate with directional keys on
gnome desktop eg. left right to go between windows and applications
then down to and using directional keys navigate applications or open
applications. hold left key and use up and down to scroll in left
category menu or between work spaces
maybe also hold left and up and down keys to scroll the dash but then
I realized these keys might not work well together
you guys do a awesome job
gnome-intuitive and productive
Linux is not about a mouse with one button.
