gtk+ 2.0 Change Theme
Wednesday, 4 Nov 2009
As the name suggests, this little program lets you change your gtk+ 2.0 theme. The aim is to make theme preview and selection as slick as possible. Themes installed on the system are presented for selection and previewed on the fly. For a comprehensive demonstration there’s a large variety of widgets.
It was originally derived from Gtk Theme Switch, but what started out as a hack to remove various nuisances now shares no code whatsoever anymore with the original. This is why I decided to opt for a new name.
Changes in 0.3.1:
- Fixes for a number of a packaging glitches.
Changes in 0.3:
- Added writing
- Added [Apply] button.
- Added RPM .spec file.
- Added this ChangeLog.
- Another major code reorganization, some cleanup ensued.
- Removed clearing of font upon theme selection change.
- Removed notebook, moved preview panel onto main view, removed textarea from preview panel.
- Renamed all references to “demo” to “preview.”
- Added blocking of main window when font dialog is shown.
- Added disabling of font clear button; fixes segfault when clicked before any theme selected.
- Added parsing of existing
.gtkrcto preset widgets
- Made all widgets in preview pane unfocussable with keyboard.
- Thanks to help from Andre Costa and Pascal Bleser, RPM packages are now available.
Changes in 0.2:
- Massive code cleanup and reorganization.
- Lots of minor improvements for the demo tab.
Changes in 0.1:
- Based on Gtk Theme Switch.
- Tarball installation features removed.
- Theme directories that do not contain a gtk+ theme are not offered for selection.
- Theme names are presented in a scrollable list rather than a combobox.
- The dialog window updates itself as a preview rather than opening a separate window.
- Integrate the preview into the main window, putting the selection and preview controls in tabs.
- [Preview] button removed, preview happens immediately when a selection is made.
- Buttons renamed to [Ok] [Cancel].
- Use stock icons as much as possible.
