Cool Compiling Nimbus Theme

I have the source code for the Nimbus theme. I need to compile it for my 64 bit Ubuntu installation. Could somebody please give me a step-by-step guide to doing this?

Thanks
Peddy

Checkout this article. It contains the following script that appears to be working (tested using Ubuntu 7.04 in a virtual environment).


Code:
sudo apt-get install fakeroot dpkg-dev devscripts 
wget -c http://dlc.sun.com/osol/jds/download...-0.0.8.tar.bz2 
wget -c http://zap.tartarus.org/~ds/debian/dists/sid/main/source/nimbus_0.0.6-1.diff.gz 
tar xf nimbus-0.0.8.tar.bz2 
cd nimbus-0.0.8 
zcat ../nimbus_0.0.6-1.diff.gz | patch -p1 
chmod +x debian/rules 
debchange -v 0.0.8-1 
sudo apt-get build-dep 
fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

Thanks Kage for the reply, but still doesn't seem to be working. Shows some output that it doesn't support my architecture, AMD64. Any ideas?

Ah, sorry, I missed the part where you're using 64-bit Ubuntu. I'll try some stuff later tonight and report back.

Alright, keep in mind this probably won't work, but it'll be fun to test it. Download the first tarball, http://dlc.sun.com/osol/jds/download...-0.0.8.tar.bz2

Open a terminal, and cd to the directory in which you downloaded it. Run "tar -jxvpf nimbus-0.0.8.tar.bz2". This will create a folder called nimbus-0.0.8. Now cd to this directory, and run "./configure". Once it finishes, run "make", followed by "make check" and then "make install".

If at any point you get an error message, please post the full message here. We'll move on to step two after this.

It shows a list of all the files (many) and then gives me:

Code:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no

checking for suffix of executables... 
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed
checking dependency style of gcc... gcc3
checking for intltool >= 0.23... 0.35.0
0.35.0
0.35.0
0.35.0 found
./configure: line 3649: test: 3500
3500
3500
3500: integer expression expected
configure: error: Your intltool is too old.  You need intltool 0.23 or later.
I guess that it went better than I expected... But my intltool version is 0.35.5?
Should I roll back?

Thanks
Peddy


EDIT
OK I used intltoolize --force to make all the files. Then I used make to make them, make install afterward.
Here is the output

./configure gives you a solid output. What happens when you run "make" and "make install" (both as root)?

Please see 3 posts up. That is only for 'make install'. For make, it just gives me a long list of all the files. I guess its installed, now how to I set it? Its not in the themes menu. Any ideas?

Ah, then its installed. Download and install this package now, using the same "./configure; make; make install"

http://zap.tartarus.org/%7Eds/debian....0.6-1.diff.gz

To unpack that archive, use "gzip -d nimbus-0.0.6-1.diff.gz".

I did it
What did the trick was, that I needed to make a symbolic link between the original file, and where the file needs to be (so that the GNOME theme manager can read it.)
Awesome, I am so happy.
Just if anyone wants to know, this is what I did

The first one is where it is. The first one is the correct place. The second one is where it is installed by default.

Code:
/usr/share/themes/nimbus -> /usr/local/share/themes/nimbus
/usr/share/icons/nimbus -> /usr/local/share/icons/nimbus
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libnimbus.so -> /usr/local/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libnimbus.so
/usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libnimbus.so -> /usr/local/lib32/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libnimbus.so
Thanks to cky for helping me with this. You're the man

And of course thanks to kage for spending time with me to do this. I would have probably lost hope if it wasn't for him.

I'm glad you got it working. Most mailing lists and forums atm are assuming it just doesn't work on 64-bit.

Then I'm special. All the buttons, etc. are working perfectly. And this page comes up on Google Search when you search 'nimbus theme'.
