DeLorean_Mono Gtk3 Themes 1.5.2

13 Favourites
* If using Gnome, it must be Gnome3.0! Openbox, LXDE, & Xfce should work as long as you are not using apps themed in gtk3(if you do, they will look strange).

***IMPORTANT, please read the install***
As of vers. 1.5.1, This is DeLorean_Mono Themes. It includes 3 themes:
    DeLorean_Mono: brushed/hammered-steel
    DeLorean_Alu: brushed aluminum
    DeLorean_Scratched: scrated/keyed steel

      As of vers. 1.5.0, the textured images used for widgets backgrounds, menu-bars, etc... are generated with a small bash-script for the specific dimensions of your monitor.
      The script inside the DeLorean-1.5.1 folder builds all three themes at once.

      ***This theme will look like Windows95 (if it works at all) if you do not run the!***

        GTK3 gtk-engine-unico-1.0.1 or newer Stable
        GTK2 gtk-engine-murrine
        GTK2 pixbuf-engine or the gtk(2)-engines package
        Gtk3-3.2.0 or later installed

      *the actual names of these packages may vary from distro to distro

      1. Download: DeLorean-1.5.1, and un-zip the package into the folder of your choice.

      2. Open: DeLorean-1.5.1 Folder. You will find 3 folders and the script.
        Make sure is executable. Right click on it and select "properties" from the menu. Open the "permissions" tab. At the bottom make sure "Allow executing as a program" is checked.

      3. Double-Click on the script.
        A pop up window will ask "Do you want to run "", or display its contents?"

      4. Select: "Run in Terminal"
        Follow the directions in terminal to set-up DeLorean_Mono.

      5. Terminal: When the Terminal screen pops up, the first thing is it will ask you for your monitors screen resolution in pixels. The script will print out the monitor dimensions it recieves from running: xdpyinfo | grep 'dimensions:' This should be accurate. Please note, if you have Dual-monitors use the dimensions of the Larger of the two.

      6. Enter your monitors dimensions in pixels. For example: xdpyinfo says my monitors "dimensions: 1366x768 pixels (350x201 millimeters)" Therefore I enter "1366x768" without the quotes. 1366 bieng my monitors WIDTH and 768 being its HEIGHT.

      7. Next it will ask for your the number you entered for your monitors WIDTH and to enter x34 for its HEIGHT. Therefore I would enter "1366x34" without the quotes.

      8. Lastly it will ask you for your monitors WIDTH and to enter x32 for its HEIGHT.

      9. You are done! Everything has been resized to fit your monitor. Hit any key to close the terminal.

      After the terminal closes, you may install the 3 DeLoean Theme files: System-Wide '/usr/share/themes' or Per-User '~/.themes.
      The script resizes and creates the textured background-images, menu-bar, xfwm4, and metacity themes.
      If you make a mistake when entering your information in terminal; no problem, just run again.

      This is my first Bash Script, so its a bit rough. If someone more experienced is willing to help me out with it, I would be greatfull. It'd be excellent if someone would help me turn the script into a Zenity Gui.

      DeLorean_Mono, Gtk3 & Gtk2 themes, with Metacity, Xfwm4, and OpenBox-3 Themes.
      Comments are welcomed!!!
      Please let me know about any bugs you may find.
      I am working a matching Gnome-shell, and Unity themes.

      Hope you enjoy the theme!

      A black border appears when "Nautilus has 2 or more Tabs open and the Search-Button is depressed in the Toolbar." The border runs from the bottom of the Toolbar and raps back around and up from the Statusbar/or bottom edge of window. *** It seems to be an Error in GTK3. *** It repeats the error in either Unico or Adwaita Engines. I have noticed the same error in many other themes, the color of the border can be changed : Primary-Toolbar, under Border-Color. Unfortuanly that fix doesnt work when an Image-File is used for the Primary-Toolbar; the only color I can get is Black ;-(

Awesome!..... thanks for updating the script.... best themes i've found for openbox/lxde yet... colors are great... textures are great... nothing is too dark or can't be seen or read... excellent excellent work... please keep this theme up to date if you can...... I did make ONE MODIFICATION.... on the aluminum theme.... the panel items (clock, indicator etc) didn't match the aluminum theme very well, so i jumped into gtk2 and gtk3 config files for aluminum and change the colors 797979 to 999999 matches up perfect now.. the other themes seem fine , only aluminum needed the alteration... maybe you could include it in the next release... thanks again for the awesome work... top notch man!

your script is only working with "Scratched" the others complain about not being able to find the images and or files in the other folders..... only one that comes out right is Scratched

Absolutely love this theme.. :D Well done with the texture... hope we see more of these textured themes.. :)
And BTW, I love DeLorean, especially the time machine one.
killhellokitty's avatar
Thanks! The textured themes are a major pain in the .... to make. Im toying with a new one in carbon-mesh. Love the time machine!
properlypurple's avatar
I'll be waiting for the carbon-mesh :D

Please join in :D
killhellokitty's avatar
Wow, Im very impressed with your gallery!!! If you have any ideas for a desktop image that i can suggest to use with my Theme. Please share your ideas. Im gonna try out your "Black-Folder-Honeycomb-pack" See how it goes with the theme. Maybe it will go with the new one im toying with...its a carbon-mesh theme.

Im glad you like my theme and use it! Thats very cool. If you havent updated the theme, I highly suggest that you do so.
-- cheers!

I have not received the update on the issue.
I use Fedora.
The update is expected with the new relase in a few days.:D
killhellokitty's avatar
Fedora hasn't updated yet. Okay, I use Arch-Linux it updates very often. When it updates Unico-engine and Gtk3 the previous version is very broken.
ilnanny's avatar
for me, no obvious bugs.
ilnanny's avatar
If you need some design icons or wallpapers for your theme I will be happy to design it for you.
Let me know.
killhellokitty's avatar
Really...That would be AWESOME![link]
Right now I am using "mint-x" icon set, because I like the toolbar-buttons. It would be great if you could design some icons or wallpapers to go with my theme.
Thank You So much[link]
ilnanny's avatar
I can make the png, and you create the icon theme.
Let me know what kind of icons you would like .. so I can draw.
killhellokitty's avatar
That sounds good to me. I would like a Folder Icon. Use your imagination as far as design goes. As long as it blends with the theme.

Si podrias por favor brindar los pasos para hacer la instalacion lo agradeceria mucho soy nuevo en esto y utilizo ubuntu 11.04
killhellokitty's avatar
Estoy usando traductor Google a escribir en español.
Si está utilizando Gnome3 unico-engine se requiere [link]
Si no instala estos motores - aplicaciones GTK2 no será de estilo. Así que no es un error si, por ejemplo GIMP o Firefox se ve como Windows 98. Es sólo que no han instalado el gtk2-motores. :)
- GTK2 motor Murrine o posterior
- GTK2 pixbuf-motor o el paquete gtk (2)-motores
Colocar la carpeta sin archivar (DeLorean_Purple) en / usr / share / themes / ("gksu nautilus" y vaya a "/ usr / share / themes") o creo que usted también lo puede poner en ~ /. Temas en su casa carpeta - no estoy seguro de si la ubicación de la carpeta de inicio de obras para GTK3. Para colocar la carpeta en / URS / share / themes / Hit del Alt-F2 tipo de clave: gksu nautilus / usr / share / themes Se le pedirá su contraseña de administrador luego sólo tienes que copiar la carpeta DeLorean_Purple desde donde sin archivados en / usr / share / themes folder.
En Gnome3 uso "tweaktool" para cargar DeLorean_Purple como el tema o si se utiliza Gnome2 basta con abrir el "aspecto" de la aplicación de las preferencias y el cambio a la DeLorean_NewStyle en gtk2. Gnome3 se carga tanto Gtk2 y 3 automáticamente. No te olvides de elegir el tema Metacity en Tweaktool a DeLorean_Gtk3. Si usted consigue mirar colores extraños en su casa forlder en los archivos. Ocultos y buscar un archivo / S nombre. Gtk2-default (creo que eso es lo que su llamado) o. Gnome_default y o. Gnome-color-chooser abrirlos y si especificar los colores del tema (es decir, \ # 565656 nbg_color \ ntext_color .... etc) siga adelante y mover los archivos a la basura (no los elimina). Actualizar el tema y ver si eso lo arregla. si lo hace, que es probablemente seguro borrar el archivo que el tema nunca fue cambiar los valores por defecto.

Espero que ayude. Hágamelo saber. Gracias por tu comentario! ¡Buena suerte!

The theme looks awesome! But how do I go about installing it? :S I've been googling for instructions but haven't found any so far...
killhellokitty's avatar
If you are using Gnome3 unico-engine is required ([link]) (I am guessing that you are using Ubuntu) I use ArchLinux, to my knowledge you can install Unico-engine (r69 version of the Unico engine) for 11.04Ubuntu.
As for the GTK2 you need Murrine Engine or later, & pixbuf engine or the gtk(2)-engines package.
Ubuntu/Mint/Debian distros:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf

Place the un-archived folder (DeLorean_Purple) in /urs/share/themes/ or i believe you can also put it in ~/.themes in your home folder--im not sure if the home folder location works for GTK3. To place the folder in /urs/share/themes/ Hit the Alt-F2 key type: gksu nautilus /usr/share/themes It will ask for your admin password then just copy the DeLorean_Purple folder from where you un-archived into /usr/share/themes folder.
In Gnome3 use "tweaktool" to load DeLorean_Purple as your theme or if using Gnome2 just open the "Appearance" app in preferences and change to the DeLorean_NewStyle in gtk2. Gnome3 will load both Gtk2 & 3 automagically. Dont forget to chose the Metacity theme in Tweaktool to DeLorean_Gtk3. If you get odd colors look in your home forlder at the .hidden files and look for a FILE/S named .gtk2-default(i think thats what its called) or .gnome_default and or .gnome-color-chooser open them and if the specify theme colors (ie. \nbg_color #565656\ntext_color....etc) go ahead and move those files to the trash (dont DELETE them). Reload the theme and see if that fixes it. if it does, than its probably safe to delete which ever theme file was changing the defaults.

I hope that helps. Let me know. Thanks for your comment!!! Good Luck!
