Love this - and I'm notoriously picky.  There's a level of fit and finish here that goes far beyond the norm - I'm very impressed.  Is it possible to get this with blue elements instead of orange?

Thanks very much. I can do that, but it'll take a while, due to gtk2.

Hi. Sorry I haven't updated you on progress. I got the flu soon after you responded, and I was sick and thinking about having to maintain two versions of this theme, which scared me a little. This one is already so out of date, it's almost broken.

You just need to create a lighter color for the Pane bars, and I don't think that will take away from the aesthetics of the theme at all.

Ok on the folder...

Don't laugh my distro uses gtk+3-3.8.2...

I PM'd you a link to a version with colored panes. It'd be hard to make it work in a way I'd be happy with. I think. I'm not sure. Maybe I need to get used to it.

It looks like those gtk elements aren't supported until version 3.14. The guy who made Numix tells people to either upgrade gtk or ignore the errors, as they're harmless. I went ahead and commented them out.

Hi zomby,

Thank you very much for keeping this alive.

I am still seeing the same issue as before with SpaceFM, so I hope this is something that can be changed, I know you did make a change.

1. Here is an image to show the look I was hoping could of been created. When you look at the image below you will see 'red dots' to represent
the areas that have dividers, and what I noticed in your new theme is that there are 3 orange dots to represent these areas.

i.imgur.com/6YIuc3F.jpg

2. Here is a screen shot below of your theme showing the three orange dots. I placed in the top section of the screen shot above the dots red circles, and
in the botom section to the left of the dots another red circle.

i.imgur.com/94gTfgK.jpg

In all these areas instead of the dots, there is no way for you to make a Visible Divider instead of just the dots? Also if you look at the three sections of dots at the top section of the
file manager, going left to right, or either direction, they are not inline with each other, they are all at different heights, which looks odd.

I noticed you have a folder.png, which appears in the screen shot you have of the theme here on deviantart.com. But how is this
suppose to be loaded? I use LXAppearance in Openbox, and it's always been my understanding in Linux, in order to get icons to load, you need
them setup in an icons directory to work, so I'm lost here, as to what is going on with this?

I noticed these messages when I'm starting transmission-gtk from the terminal;


(transmission-gtk:4812): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-main.css:231:20: Missing name of pseudo-class

(transmission-gtk:4812): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-main.css:267:29: Missing name of pseudo-class

(transmission-gtk:4812): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-main.css:273:29: Missing name of pseudo-class

(transmission-gtk:4812): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-main.css:280:29: Missing name of pseudo-class



Thanks again for your time zomby, keep up the great work!

Thanks. You got me motivated to finish this theme, and I'm thankful for that. It's rewarding to finish a theme, and to get feedback on it. The three dots are wonky vertically because they're being stretched. I couldn't figure that one out at the time, and forgot about it. Though to have a more visible separation between panes, I'll need to replace the dots with something else. The other option is to make the sidebar and folder pane backgrounds darker colors, like the theme in your first screenshot. But it would change the aesthetic of the entire theme pretty radically. I'd then have to darken progress bars to be visible with all applications, for example. It's like a slippery slope. That's what makes this a hard one to remedy.

I included the folder icon because I've had requests for it. There's no way to package it so it would replace the folder icons in a user's current icon theme. Here, I installed an icon theme I like -- in my case Faenza (darkest) -- into ~/.icons, and overwrote the folder icons manually (~/.icons/Faenza/places/48).

The gtk error messages in the terminal are here as well. It's due to our current version of gtk3 not supporting pseudo classes. It's messy how I'm dealing with it, but newer versions of gtk might be slightly broken without those classes. Gtk devs have added new features like "button:checked," which I'm not even sure what that is. The problem will correct itself when our versions of gtk are updated. I might get rid of them anyway, as newer gtk might use a fallback for those classes anyway.

Thanks. I'm using the default Steam skin and know nothing about theming it. The themes I have tried have been buggy in a few places.

It depends on what desktop you're using, but it gets unziped to /usr/share/themes.

I've tried to make the conky config include the background image and make it align and center, and as far as I know, it's not possible. The best I can do is give the conky config, and the png background image, that you would have to place on your wallpaper with an image editing application.

Wooooww fantastic job, very complete. Congrats :)

Only a little problem with the theme Gtk3, for some applications as Lollypop, Transmision or File-roller for instance, I can't resize the window.

King regards

Thanks very much.

I can resize those applications here. Can you resize them if you're using this theme, but using a different Metacity theme? If you don't mind, let me know what distro, version and DE you're using. I'd like to reproduce the bug to fix it.

Hi, I think than Metacity theme work fine, no problem here only when replace the folder gtk3 by other, it's when work.

I'm doing the testing for several distros, and the result is the follows,

+ ubuntu 15.04 >> Gnome 3.14 >> Unity session (OK) >> Openbox session (OK)
+ ubuntu 16.04 xenial (Alpha) >> Gnome 3.18 >> Unity sesion (OK) >> Openbox session (OK)
+ ubuntu Gnome 15.10 >> Gnome 3.18 >> Gnome Shell (FAIL)
+ elementary OS Freya (ubuntu 14.04 Trusty) >> Gnome 3.14 >> Pantheon (FAIL)
+ Debian 8.3 Jessie >> Gnome 3.14 >> Openbox (FAIL)

Metacity from the version Gnome 3.18 already isn't necesary.

Thanks in advance and king regards,

Whoa, nice. Okay, thank you. I'll test those applications in the other environments. It might be related to the gtk3 theme's resize grip.

edit: Should be fixed. It was a style property for the window frame to make this theme look halfway decent in Unity.

Thanks for your help :)
