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!
