GnomishDark

  

GTK 3.x Theme/Style

Submitted:  Dec 2 2011

Description:

NOTE:
======
Unfortunately, after years of Gnome3, even minor updates of GTK+ or Gnome-Shell break themes and waste hours of work.


GnomishDark is a clean dark theme for GTK3. It also contains a matching GTK2 theme, that depends on the latest Murrine and Pixmap engines.

*** Current Dependencies ***

GTK3 = 3.12.X (may not work with versions < 3.8)
gtk2-engines-murrine >= 0.98.1.1 (for GTK2)
gtk2-engines-pixbuf >= 2.24.10 (for GTK2)
Metacity >= 2.34 (for GTK2)

*** Notes ***

1) Ubuntu users could disable "overlay-scrollbar" if they want to have the original scrollbars of the theme. See https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/ubuntu-help/unity-scrollbars-intro.html

2) Don't forget to take a look at the file "README" in the theme folder. It contains useful tips for LibreOffice, Firefox, Epiphany, etc.

3) You won't need the source package unless you want to modify the theme or make a deb or an rpm package from it.

4) Light monochromic icons go well with this theme. I've made the gray version of nouveGnome for it: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/nouveGnome?content=125474

 Firefox issue

Nice theme!

I was using GnomishGray in LM 13 cinnamon; I installed Linux Mint14, xfce and installed GnomishDark theme. I am loving it!
I read README and changed colors in libreoffice, but I am having troubles with firefox. The first page of Google, in the box where we write to search, the letters are with white color in white background. I tried userContent.css in ~/.mozilla/firefox/userContent.css, but the problem still happens.
Can you help me please?

Thanks!

It should be ~/.mozilla/firefox/YOUR_PROFILE/chrome

YOUR_PROFILE is a directory created by firefox for you. It has different names for different users but do not mistake it with your user name.

Ok!

I did it!

Firefox created a ~/.mozilla/firefox/mwad0hks.default directory; I created a chrome directory containing userContent.css file; I put it onto ~/.mozilla/firefox/mwad0hks.default and fixed the problem. Now my GnomishDark theme is perfect.

God bless you.

Thanks!

Sorry to see you delete these fine themes, but I understand your frustration with GNOME. I'm an ex-GNOME user myself that left in mid-2010 when I saw previews of GNOME 3 and did not like what I saw coming down the pike, and switched to Xfce -- haven't regretted it at all, at least not so far. Besides, I read a story here while back on LXer.com about this very issue you're becoming frustrated with in GNOME 3, and I feel your pain.

Unlike GNOME 3, Xfce is still GTK2-based and is expected to continue to be so for at least another year or so, but can run GTK3 apps, although, of course, for those to display properly, you need GTK3-compatible themes for them. Since Xfce has stuck with the GTK2 base for now, all this breakage in GNOME every time you turn around isn't a problem with Xfce, at least not for now, anyways.

Therefore, I can recommend Xfce if you decide to jump ship from GNOME. About the only major difference as far as folder/archive contents go is that Xfce's titlebar is known as Xfwm, and the folder that Xfwm themes are stored in is xfwm4. Other than that, it's like putting together a theme for GNOME.

Or, if you wanna say heck with it, I've downloaded your themes onto my flash drive and, whenever I get a chance, I'll play around with 'em and see what I can do. But like you, I agree, I think the constant breakage of GTK3 themes every time GNOME is updated is uncalled for.

Thank you very much for your appreciation and sympathy.

What I said about broken themes is also true for Shell extensions and even GTK+ apps. I never uploaded the three GTK+-3.0 programs I wrote because many API parts became deprecated just after a few months repeatedly.

I can't see a real progress in Gnome3 with such backward-incompatible changes, let alone with functionality losses here and there. Using KDE now, I'm really happy that I said a sad goodbye to Gnome.

BTW, I'll maintain my icon sets (nouveGnome) and even port the gray one to KDE.

I understand your frustration, but ask that you reconsider deleting your themes.

Someone may pick up the torch. They are too nice, and you've invested too much time, to just make them disappear.

Thank you :) Perhaps seeing that I should hack gnome-shell with every new release to make it usable, on the one hand, and how I'm comfortable with KDE now, on the other hand, made me a little angry. Your words (and also Fred's words above) made me rethink my decision. I may keep the themes here and even update them sometimes but I won't follow the Gnome dev's caprice anymore.

Thank you.

There have been some good people that have gotten fed up with the way Gnome (dev) works, and given up on it. I've wasted hours in irc & scouring the web looking for answers to questions that go unanswered.

Yet Gnome shell is still my environment of choice so I try to ignore the politics & perceived ineptitude.

I'm very happy you reconsidered your decision. The first theme I ever 'made' was derived from your themes. So even if not kept current, they still have value. =)

...hey - since you are offering files to compile i suppose you know what to do if you wanna create your own style. i mean not only customizing the 'css files, but to use engines and apis. can you tell me some links how to learn this? - some tutorials? to understand it all from the root? that would be nice!

Hi,

Although I left Gnome, I changed my decision about deleting this page. Updates will come, although not as often as before. (I changed the top note too.)

If you want to learn how to make GTK+ themes, you couldn't rely on tutorials because many of them are out of date and there's no comprehensive tutorial as far as I know. There are two ways, however: (1) using the source of Adwaita as a basis and experimenting with it in a trial-and-error way; or (2) learning GTK+ programming. For the latter, there is a good reference, namely libgtk-3-doc, which can be found in the repositories of all distros (probably with a different name), and also there are some good books and tutorials you could find on Internet.

It should work on any Linux distro, including Linux Mint, because GTK+, Gnome and Shell are the same in all distros (although Ubuntu has made some changes to GTK+).

However, GnomishDark is still for Gnome-3.6 and GTK+-3.6. I've made changes for 3.8 but will upload the new version only after Gnome-3.8 comes into Debian Unstable (for testing).

Okay. Thanks for reply.

I am not happy with Ubuntu UNITY and GNOME3 desktops and so am switching to Linux Mint with MATE.

One secondary box I have Linux Mint 14 installed for practice, etc. It is more like GNOME2.

I will install gnomishdark theme on that and see what happens !! LOL I'll give you feedback.

I put gnomishdark in the ~/.themes folder. It shows up for selection in APPEARANCES-THEME

1) The white on yellow input box issues of SOFTWARE CENTER and SYNAPTIC go away :) No apparent such issues with FIREFOX.

2) Any text in the desktop panels is extremely small. Looks to be an 8, if that.

Other than the above (2), situation normal & nice ;)

Thanks a lot for testing on Linux Mint with MATE.

First of all, please put the theme in /usr/share/themes and see if the issues persist. Synaptic's issue may be related to installing the theme only for user; it has no problem here.

I don't have SOFTWARE CENTER on Debian but I hope its issue is related to installation as user too.

As for MATE, if it uses the GTK+ part of GnomishDark, there's only a gnome fallback mode in it, where no font size is set at all.

But if MATE uses the Cinnamon theme, please change "font-size: 10pt;" to "font-size: 12pt;" in the" #panel" block of cinnamon.css and see if it has any effect after logging out/in.

Your reply will be helpful to me.

I moved the gnomishdark from ~/.themes to /usr/share/themes and rebooted

No input box white-on-yellow problem with synaptic nor software manager

firefox browser seems to be okay, too.

Linux Mint Cinnamon is different desktop UI from MATE. There is also XFCE choice to use with Linux Mint.

google.com [SEARCH] input box now has WHITE on WHITE and affecting log-in. That is the only glitch I find.

I'll study MATE as soon as I have free time and will tell you about the result.

For Firefox, see the file README in the theme folder. Firefox has issues with all dark themes but the solution is explained in README.

Except for the MATE case, I'm happy to know that GnomishDark works well on Linux Mint. Thanks again :)

 Eclipse and GnomishDark

Hi,

your theme looks really really great, but I have a huge problem with Eclipse (eclipse.org). The design is awful as you can see here: http://abload.de/img/bildschirmfotovon201312r77.png
Do you know any workaround?

Best regards

I'm glad you like GnomishDark.

Alhough I haven't used Eclipse, I know it's in Java. Java apps can usually allow for three ways of theming: the default Java theme (mostly ugly); a GTK+ skin (which sometimes isn't designed for dark themes, as in your case); and internal color schemes. I think you could use the third way to change the color E2E2E2, which doesn't exist in GnomishDark. Google lead me to this site: http://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/eclipse-color-theme

Sorry for not reading the Arch-Wiki - here is the solution: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Eclipse#Eclipse_4.2.0_not_respecting_dark.2Fcustom_gtk_themes_resulting_in_white_background
Thanks for your help anyway :-)
