Description: Minor tweak to enhance appearance of clearlooks theme. As of version 0.4, there is an animated progressbar which is never enabled and most users are unaware of it. This causes the static candycane progressbar to smoothly rotate like a barber's pole.

Proposed modification to one file: /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

In line 80 change the word FALSE to TRUE

Additional info:
* package version(s) 2.20.2-1

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  I won't change the default looks for a theme that has been around for ages now. If you want to change it on your system, be free to do so.

We are already calling configure with '--enable-animation' which should set animation = TRUE. I cannot rebuild the package at the moment, looks like an upstream issue then.

@Jakob - I'm not sure the configure option sets the same flag in the file I mentioned. A simple sed line can do it in the PKGBUILD. I also modified the PKGBUILD to be inline with the current PKGBUILD guidelines, i.e. a "build" function and "package" function.

You are right, the gtkrc file is not modified. The proposal will most likely not be accepted as packages are shipped with upstream defaults (and this option is not crucial to functionality).

@Jakob- Right... so the executables are indeed compiled with support for animation, it is just not enabled by default, hence my feature request :)

$ ./configure --help | grep animation
--enable-animation compile clearlooks with animation support
