Description:

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


GnomishGray is a silver gray 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)

*** Important Notes ***

(1) Ubuntu users should disable "overlay-scrollbar" before using this theme, otherwise they might see blackened widget areas (a bug in overlay-scrollbar with a won't-fix tag). See https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/ubuntu-help/unity-scrollbars-intro.html

(2) Debian users may have to patch Cairo with 'server_side_gradients.patch' (bug #616308), which is included in other distros by default.

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

(4) Because GTK3 still has its limitations in handling of transparent bg colors, during drag-n-drop, dragged widgets with transparent bg colors are temporarily darkened until dropped. Apart from this minor issue and since changes in Gnome are whimsical, if you've found any problem with the latest version of the theme (at dA), please report it here. Thanks in advance!

Hello, firstly let me say i thank you for this theme, very elegant, I definitly adopted it.
Then, I have a bug you can see here:
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-gXCdpQs8NBM/UCqE1e2UYoI/AAAAAAAAAFs/iKrjN1Eg-rY/s601/Capture%2520du%25202012-08-14%252018%253A46%253A34.png
The list is totally black, unreadable, are you aware of this bug? Is there a workaround?

Thanks.

First, thanks for your comment.

I think your screenshot shows Gnome Archive Manager (file-roller). This is mine:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7793460/file-roller.png

As you see, everything is OK. Please answer the following questions:

(1) Did you change your theme to GnomishGray from a dark theme. If yes, please log out and log in again. Does the same thing happen after that?

(2) Do you use Gnome?

(3) Have you installed the theme correctly (in /usr/share/themes/)?

always, and not only for the archiver apps

(2) Do you use Gnome?

yes, gnome shell 3.4.2 from Ubuntu precise official depot

(3) Have you installed the theme correctly (in /usr/share/themes/)?
No, I installed it in ~/.themes, I always installed all my GTK themes in my user folder .themes without problem.

GnomishGray is different from most other themes in that it uses transparency for GTK3 treeview (file list, as you called it).

I checked with a friend and he didn't have this issue either. I even tried GnomishGray on VirtualBox without problem.

The installation folder doesn't matter, of course.

The problem you have is most probably related to how your system handles background transparency. This, in turn, depends on your graphics driver and also, to some lesser extent, on the Cairo version installed on your system.

I checked the Precise repository and found that the versions of Cairo and nVidia are old. But I wonder why no other Ubuntu user has reported such an issue yet.

Sorry that I couldn't be of more help :( I'll tell you if another user has this issue too.

perhaps you are using code that is not compatible with radeon catalyst drivers? I take a look if I have the same bug with the open source radeon mesa drivers.

Only CSS is used for a theme.

I have a suggestion. Download the source, open a terminal in GnomishGray/gtk-3.0 and issue the command:

glib-compile-resources gtk

Then replace the file gtk.gresource of the theme with the created one.

Good idea, just tested but same result...I tried with the open source mesa radeon drivers, same result, it's not a bug specific to AMD radeon proprietary drivers. it could be a bug in the gnome gtk engine your theme use?

Good. Now we know the graphics driver isn't the culprit.

You mean Adwaita. It belongs to gnome-themes-standard. Mine is 3.4.2 and works OK. If yours has this version too, it's not the culprit either.

There remains Cairo. I do NOT recommend you upgrade to Cairo 1.2.12 at all. Just wait until it comes into Ubuntu.

Hello again,

An idea: could you please update ONLY Ubuntu's Cairo to 1.12.2-1ubuntu1 from Quantal and see if the issue you'd mentioned is fixed after logging in and out? If upgrading of Cairo doesn't depend on many other packages, it will be easily reversible.

I can do more than that: I install Ubuntu Quantal on a computer at work. It has a AMD radeon card too:

$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV630 [Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT]

I installed your theme, you could see the result on this screenshots:

As you can see on this pictures, gnomishgrey is not ready for quantal (concern only AMD radeon graphic card?). And the black gui effect is still here.

Thanks for the reply. Those screenshots are as expected indeed ;) Quantal has gtk 3.5.12, while the theme is for gtk 3.4. I'll update the theme when the stable gtk 3.6 will come into Debian.

My suggestion was upgrading of only Cairo. Another Ubuntu user reported a similar issue and I strongly suspect a bug in the outdated Cairo 1.10 in Precise. I don't have Ubuntu so I couldn't do this experiment myself.

There's also another possibility: Ubuntu is the only distro with Unity. Canonical might have applied extra patches to gtk for it.

I ensure you that everything is OK on Debian and no user of other distros has reported this issue. However, you could change these lines in gtk-widgets.css:

GtkTreeView.view,
GtkTreeView.view:insensitive {
background-color: transparent;
}

to:

GtkTreeView.view,
GtkTreeView.view:insensitive {
background-color: @theme_bg_color;
}

and, then, recompile the theme. But not for Quantal!

I took a look at the Ubuntu patches for gtk3. There are several patches specific to Ubuntu that aren't applied in other distros. One of them is related to treeviews.

It seems that during the last two years, Ubuntu has distanced itself from other distros just for the sake of Unity. I'm not sure that this theme will be fully usable with Ubuntu in the future. I'll have two choices: (1) Making an Ubuntu-specific version; (2) Giving hints to Ubuntu users in README. The second alternative is more acceptable to me.

I began to install quantal cairo on my precise install but I had to stop: it's not only one or two packages to install, but it asked me to install some dependencies and equivalent 32bits packages too...I prefered to keep my aim computer clean. I tried the second workaround and, good news, it works very good, I can finally see files list in file-roller:

Is it the same result as with transparent function?

For the the shape of scrollbars, I have the same as the screenshot if I desactivate ubuntu scrollbar.

So everything is OK now, thank you very much for your help.

Hurrah! The screenshot is quite acceptable although you lose an elegant gradient for treeviews.

I'll add this workaround for Ubuntu to README. Thanks for your patience and cooperation.

There only remains the weird shape of scrollbars in Ubuntu but it's acceptable and I don't want to take your time for it.

I use Debian Sid with some parts mixed from testing and my window manager is jwm with some gnome parts in it. Everything looks good here at least and nothing weird has not appeared during seven hours of usage.

By the way your theme gives Firefox/Iceweasel a really good outlook. I think it is the best one I have seen for awhile.

Thanks for the reply. My system is also sid+testing with Gnome-Shell. So, Debian has no problem with the theme :)

As only one user has reported a problem, I conclude that there's no general issue with the bg transparency I've given to treeviews (for the "silver" effect).

Actually when I started using your theme it looked horribly wrong at first... nothing worked and everything was off. A solution was to do apt-get install gtk3-engines-*. and just in case apt-get install gtk2-engines-*.

After this was done everything started looking just fine. So just a wild guess is that the user who reported the problem might either be missing a gtk engine or might have an outdated one.

I think your guess is right, although the theme doesn't depend on any gtk3-engines-* but on gnome-themes-standard, which may be a dependency of one of those packages.

I've uploaded the source for such cases. A "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" is enough for creating a deb package, which will automatically install all dependencies.

I'm sorry mate, I haven't made myself clear.
It's not a bug, just a opinion about the design.
IMO, the gradient has to be subtle and natural.
Here, they are (IMO) too rough.

 need help on pair of items

Hello sir and thanks a lot for this nice and elegant theme. I am newbie in Ubuntu/Linux world, so please excuse for some, maybe stupid, questions.
First of all, I run Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome 3.5.4.
I saved your theme in /use/share/theme/ directory and loaded by Gnome-Tweak-Tool (v3.6). Unfortunately I have some problems and need your help on these items:
1. In the gnome panel the words "Windows" and "Applications" are quite unreadable either on dark and light wallpapers. They are quite difficult to see because: they are black (I guess), not separated between them and have not a background rounded rectangle with a different colour as seen in other themes.
2. I cannot set the Gtk Theme as in your pictures (GnomishGray) because all windows become black.
3. In the windows view of gnome panel, windows' titles are not well aligned to the window (the window preview share an half of the window name) and the text is quite unreadable as well.
I attach some screenshots to a better comprehension.
Thanks in adavance for you help.

Hello,

You are welcome. Please read the main body of this page. As it says:

This theme is for Gnome 3.6. You could update your Ubuntu to the latest Quantal Beta or, preferably, wait until Quantal is a stable Ubuntu.

On the other hand, you should remove all the packages named overlay-scrollbar with Synaptic (install Synaptic if you don't have it and then reload it) before using this theme because there is a bug in them.
