MurrinaLooks – a faster Clearlooks

Note: I copied this post from my previous blog because I did not want it to get lost

If you like the default Clearlooks theme on Xubuntu, but find it a tad too slow, then this post will make your day 😀

Murrine is a relatively new theme engine that is quickly becoming popular for its speed. Plus, there are Ubuntu packages available (site is down at the moment, you can download the package for Edgy here).

However, Clearlooks was not made for this engine and thus cannot take advantage of its speed. That’s why I modified Clearlooks to use the Murrine engine. It’s not a perfect clone, but I think it gets close.

To use it, first install the Murrine Engine I mentioned, then download my MurrinaLooks theme, then place the MurrinaLooks folder in /usr/share/themes . You can now select it from Applications->Settings->User Interface Settings. Woohoo!

Here I am… Again.

Well, here I am. Moved from Blogger because it paid so little attention to clean code. I figured now, when I had no readers, would be a good time to move 😉

Anyway, I’ll re-introduce myself: My name is Vincent, born on the 3rd of November, 1989, living in the Netherlands. My music style is quite… Different. But well, you can check my profile for that. Then I like playing football (soccer for you *** Americans).

Then about this blog: you probably already figured that it is about Xubuntu. I’m not exactly sure yet what kind of things I’ll be posting, except that I do not want it to be stuff you’ve probably already read elsewhere. Well, that’s it for now.
