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!

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


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!

Don't like how it messes with the default window control layout (moved 2/3rds of the button to the right...) and the logo top-right. First was easy to fix, and the theme is quite nice overall.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'm not sure what you mean by the logo.

But I've changed the minimize, maximize, and close buttons for the next one. All the buttons should default to the right.

I was trying to find a way to have them default to either what the previous selected theme used (but I couldn't do this, and make them show up in the Appearance Properties at the same time) - or, if the user had changed their gconf settings, let it keep that.

I don't know how to do either of those, though... so if there is a way, someone let me know!

Honestly, I'd like to see this setting somewhere in the appearance properties. Under Appearance > Properties > Window Manager you should be able to pick a window border, and set the layout. And no theme should override the users settings - only suggest a change.

Someone also asked about that border earlier, so I'll use that answer here! It's from the Ambiance Drakfire Mod on Gnome-Look:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ambiance+Drakfire+Mod?content=124028

But it looks like that one was from this Fresh Dark Gnome theme on DeviantArt:
http://hcalves.deviantart.com/art/Fresh-Dark-Gnome-Theme-2-1-95737856

Which itself was from K03 theme?
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/K03?content=86417

The Drakfire mod one matches best, and is the one I used in the picture. The K03 theme I think includes a borderless version, which is cool too. It's a really nice border.

 Little bug

Hi. There is a little bug with the toggle button.

I create GUI's in python (pygtk). When i put a toggle button inside an hbox or vbox (not sure you know what they are), they look fine.

However, when i put them inside a box, and put that box inside another box, the button looks like this:

http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/1383/screenshot1fs.png

at first i thought it was a pyGTK bug. But others on the irc channel suggested changing themes and walla, the toggle button looked fine. So yea... slight bug :)

On the last update, I had added something to theme the toggle buttons for Transmission, and accidentally set it wrong - it looked just like that. The next day or so, I reuploaded a new version to fix it.

The example you sent (thanks!) doesn't give me any problems in the current version.

Sometimes if you install a new release through Appearance Preferences, it still leaves an old version in the themes folder, and may use that.

See if completely deleting the Victory folders from your /home/yourname/.themes folder, and then redownloading the new one fixes this.

Let me know if that helps at all. It's the only thing I can find right now that would cause that. I'll keep looking, though.

Thanks a lot for helping find the bugs and problems, I really appreciate it. And for sending the example!

No, thanks alot for fixing bugs!

Anyhow, i deleted the one i was using, downloaded the updated version and installed it.

It looks better, but I am not sure if it's intended to look the way it looks. The "normal" and "pressed" states look the same.

Yeah, that's the way it was meant to look... but it was really only meant for Transmission where it was more apparent. I've changed it on the one I'm working on so it is more clear, but I still don't like that it effects other applications. I'll probably take it out soon. It is distracting in practically all other cases. Especially when next to other buttons.

This should look a little better now, but still a little odd. I'll take this out within the next release or two (Probably when the next Ubuntu with the new Gnome comes out). Transmission won't need it anymore.

One way around this, and the reason I had to make it such a broad style for Transmission, is to make sure your apps have specific widget names.

Transmission doesn't, so to apply the property to Transmission also means it will be applied to anything else that leaves its widget unnamed.

For example, the main window of Nautilus has the widget name Nautilus, ensuring that only widget styles with the Nautilus prefix will be applied to it, and to nothing else.

I've had the most problems doing this theming thing with programs that leave their widgets unnamed. One, because of the problem above... and two, because when the program is updated, if any other widget is added in the way of the named widget, it will break the theming.

In Nautilus, even if the sidebar changes, and adds a vbox or anything, it doesn't matter, because it can still be named NautilusSidePane.

I hope all this makes sense, and is correct. Maybe it's a misunderstanding on my part, because I'm new to all this. But a lot time on this theme has been spent fixing updates to programs who either always change the widget names, or leave them unnamed - requiring each release with something added to be rethemed. This then may break another app themed because it becomes a very broad style.

Cardapio was similar to this, but fortunately tvst was kind enough to fix a Glade problem, so now Cardapio theming is easy and consistent.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/cardapio/+bug/594629/comments/6

Well, just thought I'd give an update. Should be better in this release, and I'll probably take it out in a future release. But it would be nice if anyone working on an application reading this could create specific names for their widgets.

Anyway, thanks again, and hope you still enjoy the updates.

Those are moblin icons. If you use Ubuntu, they are in the repository - they're called moblin-icon-theme... or in software-center just search for moblin icons.

If you use another distro, I'm not sure if they're in the repositories. I found this set on Deviant Art... it's not exactly the same, but close.

hi, first i want to say that i like your theme very much and use it now. the left panel colored in harmony with icons is pretty. but i think that the window buttons (close/minimize/maximize) should be some more explicit as in shiki or new wave. i think you wish to keep naivity within the theme, but i expect you to improve this issue keeping the aesthetic.

This is a ely theme. I have only 2 problems with it:

1. It does not come in a dark flavour with regular text size - only with small size.

2. It is difficult to distinguish unselected tabs from one another.

Thanks a lot!

Did you mean the whole theme dark, or with a dark panel? A lot of people asked for a dark panel, so I was using the small theme just to try it out for now.

1. If you want a dark panel with the regular Victory theme, you can go to your panel properties and under 'Background' set it to any color you want - then use gnome-color-chooser to select the font color to a brighter color.

If you use Ubuntu, gnome-color-chooser is in the repositories, or you can check the website: http://gnomecc.sourceforge.net/

2. Yeah... I changed the tabs in this release so they might be easier to see when people used dark colors... but I don't think it helps much, plus they are harder to distinguish at brighter colors. If you go to /home/yourname/.themes/Victory - find the gtkrc file, open it in gedit, find the line:

Quote:
style "tabs" = "wider"

Under that, you will see bg[ACTIVE] - this controls the color of inactive tabs. Before I had it set to:

Quote:
bg[ACTIVE] = shade (0.9, @bg_color)

Try using that - 0.8 is darker, 0.7 is even darker, etc.

Try that out, and see if 0.9 is better - or if you find something you like more, let me know. I'll have to change this back in the next release.

Thanks again!

Thank you very much for the tips! I did mean dark panel and dark menus, shiki style. The small victory theme would look great if not for the small text. I prefer not to use gnome-color-chooser, though, as it seems to override the definitions set by themes (unless I miss something about how it works).

I'll try the tip about the inactive tabs, but I think my problem is the non-existing border between them, not their own background colour.

I see what you mean about the tab border... I've thought the same thing. Last time I tried to give the inactive tabs a border, it makes the entire border around the active tab and content really dark and it's kind of ugly. I'll try to look at it again, though.

gnome-color-chooser will override theme defaults, but it doesn't alter the theme file itself. It puts a second gtkrc file in your home directory, and gnome takes preference to elements in that file over a theme file. gnome-color-chooser has a revert button that will undo all the changes, or you could just delete the gtkrc file in the home directory.

So many people love the dark panels... you would think the gnome people would make it easier. The panel properties lets you set the background... but not the text. I don't get it.

Anyway, thanks again for your thoughts. If you ever have any other ideas or questions or whatever, feel free.

Hey, I just took a look at it real quick. Try this... find that line:
Quote:
style "tabs" = "wider"

And under that, you will see where it says engine "murrine". Between the two brackets, where the gradient_shades line is, add this line:
Quote:
contrast = 1.0

See if that helps any. A higher number (1.4, etc) will make it darker... a lower number (0.5) will make it lighter.

I wish I could find a way to have that border only on inactive tabs.

Anyway, hope that helps.
