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!

Hmmm... are you using Gnome 2? Maybe you have to select it as root. Try in the terminal:

Quote:
sudo gnome-appearance-properties


Then try selecting the theme, and see if that works.

Thanks for the compliment, glad you like it.

i received a message in italian that i have translate:

Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running some preferences may not take effect. This situation indicates a possible problem with DBus, or that a non-GNOME settings manager (eg to KDE) is already running, creating conflict with the GNOME settings manager.

I have gnome 2.30

After that message appear the theme manager but without victory theme (appear only in non root mode)

Ok, that means the Victory theme isn't in your root theme folder, or it's not linked.

Try sudo nautilus. Then go to your home directory (/home/yourname/). Click View hidden files, and find the ".themes" folder.

Right click on it and click "Make Link"

Now put that link in the /root folder, and make sure it's named ".themes".

After that you should see it after you do sudo gnome-appearance-preferences.

If that doesn't work, I don't know why, and I'm not sure what else to do. I don't know what all the options/menu names are in Italian, but I hope I explained this well enough.

Let me know.

 Unity topbar

Hey, I really like your theme!
I only have a problem with the unity topbar I liked the way my previous theme rendered it but I don't want to drop this theme just because of it.

Do you perhaps know where in the configuration file(s) I can find the line that defines this behaviour? :f

 Re: Unity topbar

Hey, thanks, and glad you like it.

Are you talking about the default Ubuntu 11.04 theme for the Unity topbar? If so, there's no line you can remove from my theme to make it go back to the old way... each theme has to define its own style. So the Ubuntu theme has its own panel style, and if other themes don't, it just falls back to not themed. So the only way to get the exact same panel would be to take the panel parts of the Ubuntu theme and replace the panel parts in mine.

Try this and see if it works better, though...

In the gtkrc file (/home/yourname/.themes/Victory/gtk-2.0), go to the very bottom. There is a section called "Options". You'll see 1) Panels with a list of include lines. Comment out (put a # in front of) all of those lines except for 1b, or 1a - only do one of these at a time. So it should look like:

Quote:
#include "extras/panel-dark-murrine.rc"
include "extras/panel-dark-pixmap.rc"
#include "extras/panel-medium-pixmap-top.rc"
#include "extras/panel-medium-pixmap-bottom.rc"

#include "extras/unity-window-border-blend.rc"
#include "extras/unity-window-border-blend.rc"

Then switch to a different theme, and then back to the Victory theme (or log out and back in) to see the change.

Both of those options are for a darker topbar... one flat (1a) and one with a gradient (1b) - 1b, the gradient/pixmap one, should look closer to the default Ubuntu theme.

If you like that, you might also want to switch to the dark Victory window border - it's just the default Ubuntu border with different buttons - or just switch back to the default Ubuntu border now that I think about it - I guess it just depends on if you want different buttons, ha. If you do this, be sure to also change the tooltip_bg color to #3c3b37 either in gnome-appearance-properties, or at the VERY top of the gtkrc file. The will change the menubar colors (and firefox tab bar color) in windows to match the window border.

Anyway... sorry. I wish this was easier, but hopefully this will get you closer to something you like.

Let me know if you need help with any of this.

Thanks for the quick response :)
Your solution didn't help, but I think I can live with it :) in the beginning it was annoying me but now I don't have a problem with it :p
the exact problem was/is that It appears to me that the bar was flat before and now isn't anymore :) but nevermind!

so keep up the good work :)

one last question :p is it possible to get the normal victory borderless? I saw one of the darker themes having it, but I like the default :)

Now that I think about it, for the panel... maybe you can take the Ubuntu themes panel image from that folder (/usr/share/themes/) and replace the image in my theme folder... as long as it has the same name, it may work.

For the window borders... the default light one does come with a borderless version. Just check in the Appearance Properties > Customize > Window border. The dark one doesn't have a borderless version.

But I think you can make any window border borderless by editing the metacity xml folder. At the top under frame geometry, you can adjust the right_width and left_width.

Let me know if this helps.

Sure, here are is what I was using for that:

Window Border - Simple eGtk

Wallpaper - one of these (I think it was a mod):

Icons - Moblin
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Moblin+Unofficial+Icons?content=137740

The moblin icons I was using were in the Ubuntu repositories. It was made for netbooks, so some of the icons don't look so good on the Desktop.

Other than that, I simply changed the sidebar color to the red color, and the tooltip color (and maybe background color) to match the window border.

Hope that helps!

Hey thanks a lot for the update, glad it's all there. Ubuntu seems to not like working well with a lot of things lately... it's pretty annoying (to say the least). Wonder if it's something they plan on fixing before release? Or with the way Ubuntu is going lately, if I can even do anything about it on my end. Guess I'll go ahead and download the latest (Beta?) just to see what's going on.

Are there any Gtk3 themes that do work well with it?

Adwaita Cupertino is the only one I've seen that looks as intended in Ubuntu 12.04. The only problem with that theme is the GNOME Fallback Panel, which no theme has been able to theme correctly. It has something to do with the Indicator applet.

Okay, thanks. Guess I'll have to work on this over the next month or so.

The worse problem for me was all the text turning white, which made it unusable. Here's a rough temporary fix for anyone interested...

Add this to the bottom of the ~/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css:

Quote:

GtkWindow
{
color: @fg_color;
}

GtkWindow .cell:selected
{
color: @selected_fg_color;
}


Still a lot to fix, but that should solve the white text problem for now, anyway.
