GTK 3.x Theme/Style

Score 75%


Forum:  Link
Downloads:  19696
Submitted:  May 31 2011
Updated:  Nov 15 2011


Aldabra is a GTK2 theme that uses the Murrine and Pixmap engines to mimic the look of Adwaita, the default GNOME 3 theme.

The goal of this theme is to provide visual consistency between GTK2 and GTK3 applications. It is a work in progress, and there are several known issues: keyboard shortcut color in menus, gray menu gradient, and toolbar button hover glow.

Versions currently exist for GNOME 3.0 and GNOME 3.2. Please download the version of Aldabra that matches your version of GNOME.

Aldabra is available under the LGPLv2+. Anyone is welcome to rename, package, or otherwise distribute the theme (in whole or in part) as permitted by that license. Constructive feedback is greatly appreciated.


2011-11-14 Version 3.2.2
Removed low contrast hack so that menu separators are shown. Fixed white bar in LibreOffice.

2011-11-05 Version 3.2.1
Updated Metacity and GTK themes to fit GNOME 3.2. Metacity and GTK3 theme are taken from Adwaita. Modified notebook tab to clean up Firefox. Made menus and tooltips borderless and sized correctly. Added toolbar dragging. Thanks goes to ScionicSpectre and GregKNicholson (gkn.me.uk) on gnome-look.org.

2011-06-18 Version 0.7.5 Added a COPYING and NEWS file to the archive to help packagers. The theme itself has not changed.

2011-06-15 Version 0.7.5. Fixed Eclipse scrollbars. Thanks goes to mxt on ubuntuforums.

2011-06-06 Version 0.7.4. Corrected the colors of radios and checks in menus. Fixed the scrollbar "invalid borders" error.

2011-06-02 Version 0.7.3. Switched archive formats again. Attempted to allow installation via dragging archive to gnome-appearance-properties and to reduce errors in GNOME 2.

2011-06-02 Version 0.7.2. Modified index.theme. Aldabra displays as a full theme in gnome-appearance-properties without errors/warnings about missing dependencies.

2011-06-02 Version 0.7.1. Modified index.theme.

2011-06-02 Version 0.7. Modified index.theme. Removed the active tab underline and replaced screengrab checkboxes/radiobuttons with the official Adwaita images. Switched back to .zip because of GNOME-look's upload filesize limit.

2011-06-01 Version 0.6.2. Fixed gVim scrollbars.

2011-06-01 Version 0.6.1. Modified the toolbar pixmap to work better with some applications. Added radiobuttons and checkboxes to Firefox.

2011-05-31 Version 0.6. Added Adwaita-styled checkboxes and radiobuttons. They are not applied perfectly yet. Please comment about any regressions.

2011-05-31 Version 0.5.2. Fixed Firefox menubar selected text color.

2011-05-31 Version 0.5.1. Uploaded a .tar, because .tar.gz would not open. Fixed expanders.

2011-05-31 Uploaded a .tar.gz to help packagers. Contents of file have not changed, just the archive format.

2011-05-31 Initial commit to GNOME-look.org.

 Problems with Dropbox

Thank you very much for this excellent theme. I like it a lot. However, there are some glitches with the Dropbox interface. See http://imgur.com/ZYfww.png for a screenshot. I would be very happy if you had a look at the problem and see if you can fix it. :)

 Word from upstream on the the subject...

I contacted a few key developers upstream, and asked about the possible creation of a GTK 2 Adwaita engine, since that was the preferred way forward.

However, it seems this is not (and probably never will be) a priority. They simply don't have the man power, and they want to focus on the future rather than taking valuable time to bring the past along. In fact, GTK 2 simply can't support many of the improvements that will be made in Adwaita in the future.

A good, well-tested, speedy Clearlooks theme that blends with the titlebar is sufficient for their targets. They would rather help people port their applications to GTK 3 so everyone's up to date. This sounds like the right decision to me, as well.

I also contacted the author of QGtkStyle- he is working on too many features relevant to Qt5 to have time for GTK 3, as it's quite different from supporting GTK 2.

So, here's how things are; We won't have Adwaita-compatible theming for GTK 2, and Qt apps won't use Adwaita until after Qt5 is released. If we want consistency until everyone has ported to GTK 3, we'll need to double down and make a clean, updated theme every six months. It's clear that this will be difficult and time-consuming, especially since Adwaita isn't finalized until a month before GNOME is released (UI Freeze).

Any thoughts?

 Just another note...

There are many more differences in Adwaita 3.6 than I had previously realized. For a fully consistent theme, almost everything has to be modified, so we might as well start fresh if we make something like Aldabra for 3.6.

Pixmap could make it easier to get the graphics just right if the other engine(s) won't generate the desired effect, but it would of course use up a lot more memory. :\ I'm just trying to see what the most logical course is if we won't be getting an Adwaita GTK 2 engine any time soon (if ever).

 GNOME 3.4

Needs updating to integrate with GNOME 3.4 (at least just copy Adwaita for GTK+3, maybe make GTK+2 more consistent too).

I would also like to request a Gnome 3.4 version. Aldabra was great for me on Gnome 3.0, and I was using it for months.
