Hellø, Thnx ! Aha ok hmm ... It may be due to the python version. I used 2.7, which doesnt need parenthesis. But in python 3 you do need that. Maybe you can try to change the first line: #/usr/bin/python to #/usr/bin/python2.7 to see if that works. Dont know if that is the correct way to do this, but if you have 2.7 installed it should work.

Hello

aha ok hmm it would be something like

tar -xf cdetheme1.3.tar.gz
cd cdetheme1.3
mkdir ~/.themes
cp -r cdetheme ~/.themes

But the easiest woudl be to just install Xubuntu 17.10 and run ./cdepanel in the 'cdetheme1.3' directory.

hello, I just tried it on ubuntu mate 17.10 (sorry I now see you have 16, but should work too). Please copy the directory 'cdetheme' into your ~/.themes directory (.themes directory inside your home directory). Then go into Appearance Preferences and pick one window decoration style and pick 'customize' There you can see 'cdetheme'.. But the window decorations only work for XFCE. So if you want the full package, you need to install XFCE..... - May 12 2018
Hi Gyll, THNX Yes please, if you have any tips.. Some things I justwansnt able to figure out how to do. Your setups look pretty consistent so you probably know more than I haha. So yes I'd be happy to receive your help. I'll find some time to look into it. Dont know if it is possible to send a PM via this platform?

PS: Btw this is also an older version of the setup. Maybe you can try https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1231025/ - May 04 2018
Hi Douwtjeh, I just tried your recommendation, it seems to work , thnx ! Hm yes I'm also not entirely sure how the directory structure is supposed to look, I just followed the examples from other themes. I copied my gtk-3.16 directory to gtk-3.0 and then it seems to works. Strangely enough, the libtgtk version on ubuntu 18.04 is 3.22, and indeed the theme is read from the files in the gtk-3.20 directory (i know because the other version doesnt contains a couple of images the latter one does). So the gtk-3.0 is hm yes not used, but needed for the other one to work ?...

Yes, the window borders.. Apparently, gtk3 now has built-in window decorations and they are not provided anymore by the window manager. (I havent entirely read up on that). Indeed, if you load a theme like'adwaita' it also doesnt seem to have borders, only a window title. More traditional widow managers like xfce do. So what I did , is just style the 'headerbar' widget from gtk to fit with the theme. But if you want to have the full cde-like feel, you need to use xfce for now.

Apart from that, all wigets seem to draw all right. At least the ones shown in 'gtk3-widget-factory'....

- May 03 2018
aha ok maybe i will try it some time. But does this mean you got it to work? Xfce has its own window manager 'Xfwm' I'm not sure about gnome2 - May 03 2018
Hmm I just spent 2 hours or so trying but it seems to be too complicated for me. For gnome-tweak to look in your ~/.themes directory, you need to install a gnome-tweak extension calld 'user-themes' or something. But how? I'm happy I'm using xfce hahahah - May 02 2018
PS but for the window decorations you do need XFCE to be installed... - May 02 2018
THNX ! Hmm have you copied the dir to ~/.themes ? I'll try and make a usb of ubuntu 18.04 and try it myself...... - May 02 2018
THNX! Glad it works for you. I'll be updating the Gtk3 themes to match the newer Gtk2 in the coming weeks ..

aha... ok thnx for the tip! I thought I tried that out (commenting it out) but maybe I was editing the wrong file again ;) - Apr 10 2018
Hello ! I've been studying the css of your themes and am a bit mystified about how the scrollbar buttons know that they both have to sit on one side of the scrollbar.(and not one on each side). Cant find how this is coded. Can you give me a hint? thnx - Apr 09 2018
YES ! It works :) In the theme's directory I now made 2 directories: one called gtk-3.16 containing the files of the older theme and a dir gtk-3.20 containing the newer files. With this setup, it works on both xubuntu 16.04 and 17.10. Maybe you can include the older one in your distr. too..

anyway, thnx for helping me out !

Jos - Apr 08 2018
aha! thnx I didn't know that ! Ok so I looked up libgtk3 in synaptic. On 16.04 it seems to be 3.18.9-1 and on 17.10 its 3.22.25-0 Hmm but wait then I dont get the numbering. In the .themes directory there are subdirs like 'gtk-3.0' Shouldnt that then be 'gtk-3.22' or something?...

Jos - Apr 07 2018
thnx yes LTS... Please see:

ldd /usr/bin/pavucontrol |grep gtk
libgtkmm-3.0.so.1 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgtkmm-3.0.so.1 (0x00007fb42998f000)
libcanberra-gtk3.so.0 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcanberra-gtk3.so.0 (0x00007fb428e79000)
libgtk-3.so.0 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgtk-3.so.0 (0x00007fb428339000)
- Apr 07 2018
Great ! It works well and colors can be modified easily. Unfortunately gtk3 doesnt seem to work on xubuntu 16.04. Which is strange because it does work on 17.10, which seems to have the exact same libraries. At least for pavucontrol if I do

ldd /usr/bin/pavucontrol |grep gtk

I get the exact same libraries, both on 16.04 and 17.10. But on 16.04 it doesnt work, and on 17.10 it does... so yes... Maybe just better wait until the older gtk3 versions just die out..

Thnx! great classic themes... Works great on xubuntu 16.04. Unfortunately, on the newer 17.10 the Win 95 theme looks funny (eg lines between all menu items. Version of gtk for that is 3.22 .... - Apr 07 2018

thnx. Due to limitations of deKorator you need to place the minimize button in the utmost left position (most left button on the left side of the window) and the maximize button on the right side. All other buttons need to be on the right side of the window (left of the maximize button). Then it looks ok. I couldn't find another way to make it work... - Dec 19 2012

hi

thanx for writing deKorator! I'm trying to make an mwm/cde style window decoration. I want to have the buttons and title bar colorized in the current color scheme's colors. It seems to work fine for the title bar, window borders and button background, but the buttons themselves dont seem to colorize. 1) when I disable 'colorize buttons' the buttons appear in the color of the png file, as they should 2) when I enable 'colorize buttons' the buttons appear grey, independent of the color scheme i pick. So they don't seem to colorize, but appear in a single grey color... helpppp.... - Jan 01 2009
