I have pets for some gtk engines here

For those who don't know about site I collected lots of themes and wallpapers on my site here:

There have been lots of new stuff probably on the forums since I haven't been much active lately (like you, john biles, I found puppy version that works for my PC, remastered it and now rarely trying new versions) but it's still much more browsable on my site and I think we already have many nice themes it's only question of taste and esthetic to put the right ones together. From all puppy releases I think 4.2 was the only official puppy release where I really liked the default setup.
And I agree few more MBs are not awefully much for good look, or reducing number of default wallpapers and themes if the default one hits the spot.
But not everyone's taste is alike.
Lately I much more like clean desktop with wbar, I hate when wallpaper is too high contrast or busy - it will be there on your desk so it needs to be easy, soft and calm, so pleasant to look at. Curently I use Aurora theme, fluxbox with custom theme, wbar with Bluestep Humanity icons and wallpaper of mine

For a while I was also obsessed with conky/lua setups, this was on kdpup though (kde3)

Hi Jemimah,

Oily mackerel that's a lot of engines. I had a quick looking around at the themes available.

These engines kind of look old. Of course if you like them, that's totally fine, was just wonder if you knew what they look like, chunky, like Win95. Good for a retro look I suppose.


Are you planning to add all these engines just for the theme support they provide, or you're only looking for the good looking engines? (Good looking is subject to opinion)

On the other hand, these engines look pretty modern from screenshots:

(Edit: Clearlooks is great too, I'm just sick of it)

Sorry for all the questions.

I was trying to get all the available engines, for maximum support. It probably does make sense to trim out the ugly ones.

Finally! Have regular internet back again!

Here are some Murrine themes. They're all basically the same, just different colors:

Pets can be found here.

I'm not sure if it's because I'm not running Metacity, but most of the Equinox and Aurora themes look similar. Haven't looked too deeply into them though.





I couldn't find any TerraNova themes except for the ones that come packaged with the engine. They're pretty cool though and the engine is really interesting:

Not sure if I've given you too many or too little themes for you to peruse.

LMMS 1.0.2, Ardour 3.5.389, Kdenlive 0.9.8
