Elementaryish 1.1.6 Gtk3 Theme for 13.04 and 12.10 by Dolsilwa Elementaryish 1.1.6 Gtk3 Theme for 13.04 and 12.10 by Dolsilwa
::Help me improve theme::
- Umair from Noobslab.com pointed me out that there is a bug - strange menu backgroud color like in those screenshots: www.noobslab.com/2013/04/eleme…
Does everybody has this bug? i'd really would like to recreate it and fix it.

::General::

- Theme comes with two versions - with dark panels and menus (elementary-dkpanel), and with light panels and menus (elementaryish).
- Theme works with Unity and with Gnome Classic Session (gnome-fallback)
- If you have installed previous version of this theme - please delete it first, because names of themes are the same.
- Theme is based on Greybird theme and inspired by Elementary theme
- for Gnome 3.6 (versions from Ubuntu 12.10 or 13.04)
- theme was designed to use with AppMenu (Global menu), of course you can use it with standard menubar, but it looks best with Appmenu.
- I have not tested it with any other file managers, so i have no idea how it looks with Nemo, Athena, Marlin or Thunar. But it shouldn't look bad.
- There are some mac-ish looking widgets in this theme, so if you're allergic to mac os x design - please don't use it.

::Installation::

- for 1.1.5 theme Extract .zip archive, and copy "elementaryish" / "elementary-dkpanel" folder to your .themes folder, or to usr/share/themes/ . Then change your theme with "gnome-tweak-tool" or "Ubuntu Tweak".

- for 1.1.6 theme go to folder elementaryish 1.1.6.

::Emerald::

- In 13.04 Gnome-panel session with Compiz some people have problems with maximized window borders (it's gtk-window-decorator bug). Emerald also has this problem but only with some themes - so i've made Emerald theme for elementaryish (and egtk) that is free of this bug, and works well with gnome-panel session

- Emerald theme is in "Emerald theme" folder

:: Beta for Gala/Mutter::

- This is 1.1.5 version but with dark color scheme and gnome3 window theme, so if you use app that uses dark color scheme you'll have nice dark windows and widgets. Here is screenshot: dolsilwa.deviantart.com/art/Gn…

- You can find it in "Beta" folder.

::Fonts::

- Theme looks good with every font ;-) but it looks best with elementary-style fonts:

Application font: Droid Sans, 9pt
Document font: Droid Sans, 10pt
Desktop font: Droid Sans, 9pt
Window title font: Droid Sans Bold, 9pt
Fixed width font: Droid Sans Mono, 9pt

(from elementary website)

::Credits::

- To DanRabbit and rest of elementary team - for great design.
- To Simon Steinbeiß and Shimmer Project team - for Greybird code which was great base for this theme.
- To Trastes - creator of Gnome Cupertino theme - i've borrowed some of his great css code.

::Extras:: ::FIREFOX::

- My persona theme for Firefox: addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/…
- Zeeeeee's and Loklaan's full Firefox theme: addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/… (compatibile with light elementaryish theme)

::Changelog::

Really great theme! I used it on my old Ubuntu 13.04 without problems, but now seems to not work in the 13.10. Hope you fix it soon, I can't live without it on my laptop :D

Wow!!! Awesome work! 
Since elementary Luna was released I have been looking for an equivalent theme that worked on Unity and nothing seemed to look quite right. 
You must have put long hours here... and what you achieved is just terrific!!! 
Thanks for sharing your hard work and the skills of a pro!

Have you tried loging out and in? And if that not works, try installing it to /usr/share/themes.

Hi! Do you use IRC?  Maybe we can talk about how to make this theme better. :) (I have been using it for some time already!) Do you make everything from scratch or do you take some code from the elementary theme? If you put the following so it get loaded (I have been placing it in gtk-widgets-assets.css) pantheon-files will look better!:

/*****************
* Widget States *
****************/

* {
   background-color: @bg_color;
   color: @text_color;
}

*:insensitive {
   color: @insensitive_color;
}

*:selected,
*:selected:focus {
   background-color: alpha (@selected_bg_color, 0.9);
   color: @selected_fg_color;
}
Here is how it looks with or without:

Hi there
Elementaryish theme is based on Greybird, and is designed to work with Ubuntu (and i hope Xubuntu) if you want to you can fork elementaryish and make your release tailored to your needs (and your OS) - it's open source :-)

It's not that i don't want to improve elementaryish - i would love to, but there are some issues. It's not Gnome 2 anymore, when you had one theme and it worked well on every distro, i've explained it many times (for example in Ubuntu Discourse: ubuntu-discourse.org/t/inconsi… ) you can't make theme to look good in Unity, and at the same time in Pantheon or Gnome-shell - they have different HIG's (or they don't have HIG's at all). Fix for pantheon-files is one of examples: if you make fixed color for foreground like in here:

* {
   background-color: @bg_color;
   color: @text_color;
}

you'll get dark symbolic images in pantheon-files, but at the same time hovered menu item will have black letters instead of white.  It's really hard now to make your theme compatibile with all file managers (nautilus, marlin, pantheon-files, nemo, athena) with all DE's and all the other stuff that comes with it. Today developer really has to choose his Desktop Environment, because it's impossible to make theme look good in every one of them.

Ah, I see! Right now I´m playing around with Elementaryish and Greybird to make it work with the latest gtk, and with some of the elementary apps, :) (it´s really hard for a beginner, you are doing a great work!)

I'm using the Dark Panel version of this theme and when using Ubuntu Tweak, I'm experiencing an issue with the background changing to a solid black color after I click the "Refresh" button. I don't know if this is an issue with the theme or with the software.

Any ideas?

The bug is due to overlay scrollbars. Disable/uninstall them.

In Ubuntu Tweak, I have my scrollbar type set to "Normal" so I'm not using the overlay scrollbar. Is there another way I should be disabling them?

Thanks for your help.

Hi there.
Do you use latest Ubuntu tweak (the latest is 8.4-1 version)?? Because mine looks completely different: [link]

jdorenbush Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013
I'm using 8.5-0. The Apps tab looks the same as yours. The problem is actually occurring under the Admins tab in the Source Center. That's where my screenshot is from.

How do you change Window Theme in 13.04 unity
Reply
:icondolsilwa:
Dolsilwa Featured By Owner May 23, 2013
With "Gnome tweak tool" or "Unity tweak tool", because "Ubuntu tweak" has a bug and you can't change window borders with it.

Just run the following command, and you're good to go,

ln -s "$HOME/.themes" "$HOME/.local/share/themes"

Dolsilwa Featured By Owner May 23, 2013
Hmm... those are regular metacity themes, so there should be no problem. Ok, check permissions (in properties) for theme folders and files - maybe there is problem.

well i checked and i dont have metacity installed just metacity-common. is it possible that by defautl ubuntu 13.04 is using a different windowmanager

Dolsilwa Featured By Owner May 24, 2013
No, everything is fine, Ubuntu is displaying metacity themes through compiz (somehow). And what about other themes you have? Can you change them freely, or there are some troubles too?

I cant change the window themes at all. They dont change when using unity tweak cool, and gnome tweak window theme changer is disabled

Hi, I installed it, enabled via unity-tweak tool and it seems latest version have some problems. In firefox, only decorations are in elementaryish style, not tabs. In amarok, it uses grey/orange GTK theme like it did with ambiance, Ubuntu one cloud widget in panel has the text in the same colour as the window, so it is not readable. With previous version, I didn't have these problems.

Gaerlond Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
Well, I found it... the problem was, the GTK settings in system-settings from KDE I have installed too told firefox and amarok to use Ambiance theme. Now it is OK.
Fonts in Ubuntu One cloud applet resolved by installation in /usr/share/themes instead of .themes folder.

Hi, you should be able to change gtk theme with Ubuntu tweak (if you can't, check theme folder if there is permission for all users to use folders and files).
But as far as i know changing windows borders in Ubuntu tweak does not work (and it's a bug from 2012)

Yes, you are right, it is a bug in UTweak, thanks, with Unity config tool it works without problem... and it is amazing theme ;)

Will you be updating this theme for GTK 3.8?

Eventyally i think yes, but it depends if canonical will base ubuntu 13.10 on gnome 3.8.

Oh. I am using Arch Linux which already has GTK3.8 and I wanted to try this theme. Thanks though.

Ok, i understand now... but i don't think it's possible in gtk 3.6. I havent seen any theme with animated progressbar (but i admit it would look awesome). Sad thing is - there was animated progressbar in gtk 2.x :-/

Yes, this is Faenza (in dark theme) and Faience (in light theme). I'm glad you like the theme, but design is not mine - it's DanRabbit's elementary - i just try to port it to GNOME 3.6 :-)
