Description:

This theme was an attempt to allow everyone to pick a wide variety of colors and window borders. You can change the sidebar colors to any color you prefer, or if you prefer another window border, you can change the menubar color to make it blend together. This is my first time doing something like this, so there may be a lot of problems - Let me know. Thanks so much to everyone for help, feedback, comments, messages, voting, and fannage(?). Also, negative/critical feedback is just as (and sometimes more) important as any other. I don't know what down votes mean without it! Hope everyone enjoys. Thanks again!

- Darin


----------------------------------------------------------


How to Use


++ Colors ++

Several Gtk desktops have an Appearance Manager (see below), usually under the System menu, that allow you to customize a themes colors. If not, try this:

1. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
2. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
3. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

Each of these files contain the color settings in the top of the files. The important parts are:

selected_fg_color
selected_bg_color

tooltip_fg_color
tooltip_bg_color

Here's what each one of those changes:

selected_fg_color = Sidebar Text Color
selected_bg_color = Sidebar Background Color

tooltip_fg_color = File Menu Text Color
tooltip_bg_color = File Menu Background Color

Just change the #xxxxxx to a color you like! Save, and log out and back in to see the changes!





++ Options ++

This theme offers options for light panels, light menus, Nautilus elementary, the ability to try old Victory styles, and more.

At the bottom of the gtkrc or gtk.css file (mentioned in Steps 1 and 2 of the color section), you will find a section called Options. Comment or Uncomment lines (add or remove a # at the beginning of the line or the /* at the beginning and */ at the end) to try different options. After making changes, save the file. You will have to change to another theme for a moment. Go back to the Victory theme, and your changes should appear.



++ Installing ++

To install, extract the downloaded tar.gz. Put the folders (Victory, Victory for Top Panels) in your themes directory. Then open your desktops Appearance Manager to select the theme.

Log out and back in to make sure all changes take effect (especially in Gnome 3)

If you would like root apps (Synaptic/Package Manager/GParted) to use your theme, try the following. Step 2 may give an error that there was no such folder. If so, ignore it and move on to Step 4.

1.) Open terminal and type:
2.) sudo mv /root/.themes /root/.themesbackup
3.) Hit enter, then type:
4.) sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root
5.) Hit enter

2012.03.16b - Repackaged and reuploaded. Was having a problem with compression, causing the files for Cinnamon, Gnome-Shell, and a lot of other updates not to work. If you had any problems using this update, delete it, try it again, and let me know if anyone else is still having problems. Sorry!

2012.03.16 | c
Updated again on 2012-05-13.
This theme was created using Gtk3.2. They made some theme changes in Gtk3.4, so it doesn't look as intended. This update is a temporary fix for the biggest problem in Gtk3.4 - white text. Hopefully I can update the theme in the next month or so to address the rest of the problems.


Anyway, let me know what's good or bad, or if any apps aren't theming right or anything. Thanks again everyone... I really appreciate all the feedback and comments!

Hey, thanks for the help. I just updated with a new version that should fix it. Glad you enjoy it! Let me know what you think of the new one - if you like the changes or not.

Thanks again!

Works and looks fine on Xubuntu 10.04, voted you up.
At least in Libre Office 3.3.2 the scroll bar on the right side of a page still has issues (doesn't work properly with the mouse button and is black instead of victory-grey, yet fine with the scroll wheel).

Thanks for sharing,
Michael

Hey, thanks a lot! Both for the comment and the vote! I'm glad it's working good in Xubuntu - it's the first time I'd put that much into XFCE theming, and I wasn't sure I tested it well enough - I tested it on Xubuntu 10.10 and 11.04, but didn't get to check it on 10.04.

For LibreOffice/OpenOffice - I think I forgot to change one part of the gtkrc. Try this and see if it works:

In the gtkrc (/home/yourname/.themes/Victory/gtk-2.0/gtkrc), find the section:

Quote:
style "scrollbar"

Under that, you will see four has-stepper entries. They should all be 0 except has-forward-stepper, which should be 1, and stepper-size should be 1. So it should look like this:

Quote:
style "scrollbar"
{
GtkScrollbar:: has-backward-stepper = 0
GtkScrollbar:: has-forward-stepper = 1
GtkScrollbar:: has-secondary-backward-stepper = 0
GtkScrollbar:: has-secondary-forward-stepper = 0
GtkRange:: trough-under-steppers = 0
GtkRange:: stepper-size = 1
GtkRange:: arrow-scaling = 0.45


After that, close LibreOffice/OpenOffice and open it again to see if it works. You may have to log out and back in again - sometimes it's weird like that.

I hope I explained this well enough. Let me know how it works or if you have any other problems!

Thanks again!

Thanks.

I have no recommendations for a cursor theme! I just use the old DMZ one. The oxy-white is ok. I'm really not a big fan of many cursor themes. A lot of them are too bulky or flashy for me.

Do you have any you like?

It's just a suggestion, so don't worry too much about it, you didn't do anything wrong. It's just talking about the icon theme:

Glad you figured it out. Further back in the comments, someone else was having a problem with the breadcrumbs. The user FINux - he posted a picture.

Anyway, I couldn't help him... but he might have the same problem that you had. Maybe you could help him out?
