    Hi

    Is there any way to get the themes working for the 64 bit version of 2.6.10 for windows?
    I get the dark colors from Aurora-Midnight, the theme i'd like to use but I think the libaurora.dll is not working with the x64 version.

    With the normal 32 bit version of Gimp 2.6.xx I have no problems at all but I don't really want to use that one over the x64 build.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance and best regards

    For Gimp-2.6.11 it is pretty easy to install.
    Close Gimp if it is opened.
    Just download the Windows installer and double click it to run the setup.
    It will place a theme selector shortcut on your desktop.
    Double click the shortcut to open it, (this opens the theme selector program dialog), and choose a theme click okay to submit the change and re-open Gimp.

    Thanks Rod for a site link. How about your neon blue? Can it be downloaded and used? It looks cool because of the dark theme and colored text.

    Does anyone know if these work in Windows 64-bit? I have Windows 7 x64 but used the 32-bit version since it was more stable, but I feel adventurous...

    I'd hate to have to go back to using the default theme though. :(

    If im not wrong, all this does is take the theme files and overwrites em with some new ones with your theme.
    So in theory you could copy the theme files from the 32-bit and throw it in the 64-bit.
    But im not sure if i bothered with theme on my 64-bit...

    They will work if you install into the correct program directory for 32 bit programs.
    If you install it into your regular programs for 64 bit the dll files (engines) won't load.

    I do have the neon gtkrc if you still want it Raven.Sorry i took so long to answer you.

    Code:
    # Edit these colors and fonts however you like, after copying the file to
    # another theme directory.
    # This Theme is called NEON_BLUE_byRod
    
    style "default"
    {
      # Normal
    
    
      bg[SELECTED] = "#000000"
      base[SELECTED] = "#ff0000" # save image name text bg color
      base[INSENSITIVE] = "#181818" # bg opacity percentage area and save dialog bg area
      base[ACTIVE] = "#000000" # 
      # 
      fg[SELECTED] = "#000000"
      text[SELECTED] = "#ff0000" # layer name select text color
      text[INSENSITIVE] = "#ff0000" # save as dialog hi-lite text
      text[ACTIVE] = "#ff0000" # Active layer name text color - save dialog folder select text color
    
    
    
      bg[ACTIVE] = "#181818"  #dialog tab bg non-selected - button select bg - bg loading bar
      fg[ACTIVE] = "#417da2"
    
      bg[NORMAL] = "#000000" # interface bg - menu bg - dialog bg
      bg[PRELIGHT] = "#417da2" # loading bar color - menu bg hover color
      fg[PRELIGHT] = "#ffffff" # menu text hover color - button text hover color - non active menu items text color
      bg[INSENSITIVE] = "#181818" # button bg
    
      fg[NORMAL] = "#417da2" # menu text
    
      base[NORMAL]          = "#181818"     # list item background
    
      engine "cleanice"
      {
      }
    }
    widget_class "*" style "default"
    
    
    You need to copy this to the USERFOLDER\gimp-2.6\gtkrc file AND the C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\etc\gtk-2.0 gtkrc file. Do this in notepad ++.
    Be sure and copy a backup of your originals to a safe place first or rename them both to OLDgtkrc or something.
    Then you need to take the attached libcleanice.dll file and place it in
    \GIMP-2.0\lib\gtk-2.0\2.10.0\engines folder

    Halleuya: GIMP 2.8 is out. Now I'm wondering how to make Gimp Themes work in the new version. I'm on a Windows 7 (64bit). Has anyone had time to mess with it yet? I love the new brush layout and dynamics. But I just don't want to fall back to the default theme if I can help it. I tried to install it and it keeps creating another GIMP-2.0 folder. So I tried to move the files into the new Gimp version with no luck. If you know of a fix, I'll happily give you my first born. :wilber:

    Add "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\32\bin" to your Windows Environment Path (adjust if you installed gimp in a different folder)

    Here's a link on how to change your Environment variables, if you don't already know: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.windows7hacker.com/index.php/2010/05/how-to-addedit-environment-variables-in-windows-7/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.windows7hacker.com/index.php ... windows-7/</a>

    Re: Gimp Themes v1.0 for Windows HELP

    When I try to run it, it says "The program can't start because libatk-1.0-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

    I have tried reinstalling and it did not fix the error. Help?

    Sorry, I didn't check it through enough I guess... I have V2.8 so I guess that's why it isn't working. I tried the environment variable thing and it didn't work. Thanks for the reply though. :D

    I have suggested it before, not sure if anyone has tested it though:
    Install 2.6
    Install themes
    Copy theme files to safe place
    Install 2.8 (if you haven't)
    Move theme files to 2.8

    I think that should work.

    Also, if you just want "midnight aurora" or something, the partha build comes with a dark theme built in, so i personally just use that + the tiny fixes.

    Make gimp 2.8 theme on windows 7 look polished!!!! Work around Tutorial

    [​IMG]

    This worked for me....

    IMPORTANT

    This information is from many sources on the internet all compiled into one answer and it only tells you a work around to get gimp 2.8 for windows to look good, not how to get Gimp Themes v1.0 to work but it may have played a part in it.

    Step One...

    Add "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\32\bin" to your Windows Environment Path (adjust if you installed gimp in a different folder)

    Here's a link on how to change your Environment variables, if you don't already know: http://www.windows7hacker.com/index.php/2010/05/how-to-addedit-environment-variables-in-windows-7/

    (This will halp gimp use the windows theme. also to help read gnome themes )


    Step Two...

    If you copy the "MS-Windows" folder from "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\themes" to "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\themes".

    Then move the content out so rather than it being "MS-Windows\gtk-2.0\[then the file called gtkrc]" its just, "MS-Windows\[then the file]".

    Then open Gimp and go Edit>Preferences>Theme select "MS-Windows" and press "Ok", then you can press "Reload Current Theme or restart Gimp", and that should sort it.

    (This just makes sure everything works)


    ( I did Install Gimp Themes v1.0 at this point but I'm not sure if it made a differences Up to you )


    Step Three...

    Download and paste the gnome themes into C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\themes. Download >> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36057148/Better GTK2 Themes for GIMP 2.8.zip

    Then open Gimp and go Edit>Preferences>Theme select "Prudence" and press "Ok", then you can press "Reload Current Theme or restart Gimp", and that should sort it.

    It worked for me and as you can see I have set mine up as i like.

    Good luck
