Description:

This is a set of GDM's/Wallpapers made to match my GTK themes "Shiki-Colors" and my icon themes "GNOME-Colors".

There are 7 versions included: (Brave/Blue, Human/Orange, Wine/Red, Noble/Purple, Wise/Green, Dust/Chocolate and Illustrious/Pink)

The GDM themes have a max resolution of 2140x1200 and support all 16:9, 16:10, 5:4 and 4:3 screen ratios or anything in between. Sources for a Dual-display 3840x1200 version are included.

Must read, or clowns will eat you:
* To install GDM's, extract .tar.gz file, drag n' drop desired themes to the login preferences window, or run make install as administrator in the extracted folder. For more options, type make help.

* To use the included wallpapers, save them wherever you like and add them through GNOME's appearance preferences or run the make install command and they will appear there.

* If you replace the logo.png files, you can change the logo of the GDM's to your favorite Linux distribution's branding.

* If you replace the "bg.png" files, you can use any wallpaper you want! (in fact, I recommend it if you don't like the included backgrounds, or want the GDM's to feature your favorite wallpaper).

* In Ubuntu, you can use the official PPA repository for easy installation and upgrades. For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install arc-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories. The packages are also available in Debian Sid.

* Visit the GNOME-Colors project page for bug reports, feature requests, SVN and more downloads:
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/

* Consider donating a small amount to the GNOME-Colors project if you wish to support it, or to show your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the "donate" button next to the download section.




Changelog:

2.7 (2009-08-03)
* Update color palettes to match latest shiki/gnome-colors.

2.6 (2009-07-14)
* Add new Pink (Illustrious) color variation.

2.5 (2009-07-04)
* Update shutdown, suspend and logo icons to latest gnome-colors.
* Brand new wallpapers! Darker colors for less eye-strain and support for any
resolution or screen ratio below 2140x1200px.
* Project now moved to SVN, makefiles and updated documentation are included.

 I am thoroughly confused

 
 by MrLeN on: Jun 12 2009

Hello,

I have been to this page 3 times over the last 3 days. I think that this website takes it for granted that people know what everything is called :(

I have spent about 8 hours clicking around on the website, just trying to work out if there is any consistency in theme names and terminology, so that I can possibly work out how to get anything installed.

I have wound up downloading and installing repositories, and fonts and I have have downloaded themes, and all sorts of things. Yet, I haven't got one thing installed - anywhere. I am utterly confused.

Every page has totally different explanations, and none of it has a common theme, so I can't click around and try to "get the idea".

I tried to download a theme, but when I try to open it it says:

/tmp/arc-colors-1.7.3.tar.gz could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.

Every theme page such as this has a heap of download links.. no idea what they're for.. and I read the comment about the clowns - several times, REALLY trying to get it. But I can't follow the instructions, because when I try to click the download link for the theme it just takes me to some whole new page about a shiki theme.

Can someone help the people who haven't been using Ubuntu for 10 years, and explain step by step exactly what to do? I love Ubuntu, but this site is just giving me a headache.

All you really have to do is click on the "primary" download link, and you will get a .tar.gz file(think of it being like a .zip) with the content you want inside it.

Do not use firefox to open it, simply go to your desktop or wherever you downloaded it and extract the .tar.gz file, and read the instructions in either a README file or the description section of any artwork in gnome-look.

If you want a step-by-step guide for any *-colors artwork, you can go here:

And everyone, in every instructions says "jaunty, jaunty, jaunty".. what is Jaunty??? Some one needs to make a n00b site with EXACT instructions, presuming that the reader knows nothing. Not even what "Jaunty", "PPP", "Repositories" etc are.. people just use them in the text and the reader who doesn't know what they are just scratches their head.

All the explanations I see all over this website look like this to me:

"Oh well it's simple. Just download kavalamar and you'll need the bigazaboo engine and of course go to the panel for that and enter kalazaham. Then, click here, here and here.. follow the instructions on those pages and put hamafalapalop where you want, and then it works!".

I think: HUUUH????

How about instructions like:

"Before you can use any of this, you need these three things:"

Thing 1 (Thing 1 is so that...)

Thing 2 (Thing 2 is so that...)

Do install the hamafalapalop, you need to ____ which is located in the ____ etc etc?

You know, instructions anyone can understand?

All of my artwork simply requires clicking on the "download" link, and then dragging and dropping the file into Appearance Preferences for themes/icons or Login Window Manager for login screens.

All the thorough instructions are recommended, but not necessary.

Perhaps you should voice all these concerns in a group or by contacting the gnome-look.org maintainers, not in an unrelated artwork page.

Yes, it can be confusing, but - without offense - please bear in mind that Linux and it's various takes on Desktop Management (Gnome, KDE, IceWM, etc) is/are open-source initiatives produced by developers for developers.

It's all free and, yes, there is a learning curve involved precisely because the intended audience/consumer is someone presumed already to be something of an advanced computer user if not an outright programmer or developer.

Also, great programmers aren't necessarily great interface designers. Apple and Microsoft are large companies with deep pockets engaged in the business of selling software to end-users, a somewhat different mission from Linux developers.

That being said, the Gnome desktop environment tends to treat beginners more gently than KDE, another widely used desktop interface (though KDE, visually, may appear more 'like windows' to some users).

Check out http://www.psychocats.net for gentle introductions to basic Ubuntu concepts (no affiliation).

And, to get back to the purpose of this thread, thanks for a fantastic theme.

 Different localizations

In systems with Russian localization there is a small problem: text under suspend button has two strings. I've change width of buttons from 86 to 95 and spacing between it from 20 to 15 and all became great. If it's possible could you improve your themes with this changes of the width of buttons?

I don't want to add any more weight to the package unless there's a grayscale version of Shiki-Colors to match it.

However, you can do it in less than a minute!

1. Extract the theme package
2. Select bg.png and text.png
3. Right click > Open with > GIMP
4. Click Colors > Desaturate > OK in both files and save.
5. ??????
6. PROFIT!

Yes, I know how to do this, but there is a small problem: these themes willn't in ppa)) I think a lot of peoples like neutral themes, but your colorized wallpapers is to bright))) And you can add a new meta-package as arc-colors-dark and themes for it so the weight is not a problem)))
Desaturation is not a good idea because of resulting images is to bright, more good if they have main background color #3c as in your hardy-colors. And I mean to change only bg.png in all themes to version based on #3c color and add the same wallpaper. So text.png and other elements will be consistence with icon and metacity theme, but bg will be the same as wallpaper.
P.S. Sorry for my english :)

I personally don't think a #3C background will look good with Shiki, though... Since panels and window borders are that color, they could blend in with the wallpaper and potentially the window shadows as well. That's perhaps the reason I'm mostly against a #3C background color. I don't remember if the packages include the .SVG for the wallpapers, but I could upload it if you wish to make your own variation.

I do agree that the backgrounds themselves are a bit too bright, though... Hopefully for a future version 2.0 I will redesign the backgrounds with grunge-ish colors (Think of Fedora artwork).

After all's said and done, I think GDM should allow you to use your current wallpaper as a background... This would make most people happy and enhance consistency from login to desktop.

Yes, there aren't svg files for backgrounds, so if you can, could you upload it?
Unfortunately, GDM not allow to use wallpaper as background, and unfortunately not all of peoples can work with svg files, so if you add some gray variations to you theme in the future it will be great)) And #3c color looks very good with Shiki (http://pic.ipicture.ru/uploads/090617/2229/vTcA1Up6bZ.png)

Here is the source file for the wallpapers:
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?inajknldgqm

Because GNOME can't render blur properly, it'll only show up correctly under Inkscape. You can export it as a .PNG file from there.

As for the background, in the screenshot you linked to - it feels as if the panel is part of the wallpaper, and the color is too close to the metacity - so it wouldn't be too intuitive if you were to go and grab the titlebar. Then again, I have pretty poor vision - but still, it's better to make make panels and window borders contrast with the background instead of blending in.

 New wallpapers!

 
 by perfectska04 on: Jun 22 2009
 
Score 50%

I want the next version of Arc-Colors to use photorealistic wallpapers (kind of like Arc-Dust is doing right now).

If anyone wants to help, go to Wikimedia Commons (or deviantart) and look for existing wallpapers/images that you love and might want included in the arc-colors set! I've already picked some out, but there are too many images for me alone to go through.

Guidelines for recommending a wallpaper:
-Wallpapers must be licensed under creative-commons-by-share-alike 3.0 (no 1.0, 2.0, 2.5 or by-nd can be used), public domain or GPL-2+.
-Original image must be at least 1920x1200 or larger.
-Colors of wallpaper must complement an arc-colors set (for example, an orange-ish sunset could go well with human, wood/trees with dust, sky/ocean with brave, forest/grass with wise, etc...

 Some questions...

Hello! I've really enjoyed your idea of bringing 'real' wallpapers to Arc-Colors.

However, will the old ones disappear? I think I would prefer having the choice between the old one and the new ones... Should it be different packages, or just a different choice in gdmsetup.

Btw, will the latest color added (chocolate, coffee, dust?) have a background like all the other ones?

Thanks in advance!
Bruno

Ideally - there would be a new abstract pack as an alternative to a new photo-realistic set.

As for Dust, I don't think I'll make a brown wallpaper for it - It just didn't look quite right. The color palette doesn't lend itself for a wallpaper.

Just in case, source for arc-colors is here:

http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/source/browse/arc-colors/Sources/arc-bg.svg

If you have Inkscape, making an background of any color you like is really easy... just:

1. Save file and open in Inkscape.
2. Select the blue background below the other objects.
3. On the toolbar to the left, click the second pointer icon (edit paths by nodes)
4. Press SHIFT+CTRL+F
5. To your right, click "Edit..." under the color bar and choose any color you like.
6. Now just click SHIFT+CTRL+E and Export the image as "Page" with the resolution of your liking.
