yes, just some small changes (e.g. the buttons on the dark taskbar have a less prominent relief) and some code cleanup. and yes again, no history entry for this one, i don't document revisions in history, just major and minor releases - Feb 19 2018
oh, forgot to ask, the themes with light panel work fine? - Feb 13 2018
works at my end, you had a similar problem before and it was because your archive manager was not extracting the symlinks. The solution that worked for you was to use the command line 'unzip', so try to extract the archive with unzip in terminal (btw, using the command line 'unzip' is the way it should be done, see 'Xfce Evolution/INSTALL' file) - Feb 13 2018
@fblais: finally, there you have it: light/dark/black xfce-panel options (see 'Xfce Evolution/HACKING' file) :) - Feb 12 2018
Thanks! - Feb 06 2018
I mean the lack of Win 95 theme in Win 8+ - Feb 06 2018
Remember Win98 Plus: uh oh, i even remember Win 95 Plus! And actually i remember them quite well, i used Win 7 with 'classic' theme (which looks just like Win 95) until i switched to linux. As a matter of fact, the lack of Win 95 theme was *THE* reason i switched, believe it or not :))) - Feb 06 2018
Bronze: i also have days when i switch to bronze or crux, but most of the time i stay with the default, looks as classic as it gets to me - Feb 06 2018
Glad you like it, if you're really happy with it then please rate it, that's all we developers get in return for our work :) - Feb 06 2018
You made my day! - Feb 02 2018
will do, will do, stay tuned :) - Jan 31 2018
if you just want to change only the selected items color then you can do this simply by changing selected_bg_color definitions in gtk-2.0/gtkrc and gtk-3.0/gtk.css - Jan 19 2018
As far as i can see in google images, the "bluecurve" theme has a gray color for the windows, am i wrong? - Jan 18 2018
i don't understand what you mean by "bluecurve version", i can only change the main colors for a "sub-theme", i cannot change the way each widget looks. You mean you'd like to have a "sub-theme" with the window main color #6674CC ? - Jan 18 2018
You're welcome :) Thank You for reporting the issue, i always use details-view, so i really didn't see the prob in the icon-views. - Nov 27 2017
3.1.9, guess it's done now, unfortunately i don't know what to do about the contrast, spacing, etc of that rectangle. When i'll have more time i'll look into it and see if there's anything that can be done to increase the contrast. - Nov 27 2017
did i understand you wrong? isn't the dotted row what you meant? - Nov 27 2017
Okay, fixed, and also fixed gtk2 multiple selection to make it look the same with gtk3 (removed the individual items' borders). Actually, i'm almost done with achieving all the original goals for this theme, just finished with coloring the gtk3 infobars, and probably the next release will be 4.0.0 after which i'll take a break (i have a pretty busy period ahead).

Thanks for the report, it was important for kbd-based operation.

Cheers! - Nov 27 2017
I suppose you mean for gtk2, right? Okay, i'll look into it. - Nov 27 2017
Oh, and if you like the theme please rate it. Ummm... but only if it's a thumbs up :D - Nov 17 2017
You're welcome, fixed those gtk3 errors (among many other things).

Cheers! - Nov 17 2017
yes, i know, they are harmless (they come from a crude way of "commenting" out lines in the css file by putting an invalid character '#' at the beginning of lines). I got this complaint also from somebody else, so i guess i'll just have to fix this :) - Nov 17 2017
That's EXACTLY the whole purpose of the theme, thanks! - Nov 12 2017
Differences between revisions (last digit) are just bug fixes and/or simple tweaks, e.g. 3.1.2 fixed a long-standing bug which was not showing the hue and opacity sliders in the gtk3 color picker, fixed the height of buttons when inside a gtk2 notebook tab and tweaked their shades, increased the spacing between the label and the close button in gtk3 tabs, and... ummm... i don't remember what else :).

Thing is, revision bumps (last digit) are just bug fixes/tweaks which i generally don't document, minor version bumps (second digit) add new features, and major version bumps (first digit) signify [what i consider to be] important milestones.

Cheers! - Nov 12 2017
Dark panel is easy to do, i also thought about this, but i didn't decided yet on how to make it optional (i.e. how to allow the user to switch from light to dark). For the time being i keep it light for the sake of consistency, but i'll be thinking about this... - Nov 11 2017
You're welcome, being true to the original is more important :) Anywayz, the highlight color is trivial to change by yourself, just read the INSTALL file. I didn't put so much emphasis on this (the highlight color) exactly because it's so easy to change to whatever you like. - Nov 11 2017
File roller works fine for me (i sent you a pic, here: ) - Nov 08 2017
Yup, consistecy was the whole point. When i finally switched to linux a few months ago (after flirting with the idea for several years and preparing myself for the switch by using only linux ports on windows) i simply coulnd't work with it, the inconsistencies in the existing themes were so distracting that i couldn't do any work whatsoever. I'm really glad when people understand the whole purpose of this theme: nothing fancy, no bells and whistles, just a cleaner and less distracting working environment. - Nov 08 2017
1) i have xubuntu 17.04
2) so with unzip in terminal everything works alright? - Nov 08 2017
For the time being, i uploaded a new version (3.1.0) which doesn't use shortcuts, does this new one work for you? - Nov 07 2017
Thanks for the "perfect", i'll pretend i didn't see the "but..." :D

But seriously, i'll try to make the scrollbars tweak-able based on the canvas color. I suppose you mean just the scrollbar rail, not the slider and the buttons, right? i mean, the buttons and the slider are "button" widgets, so it would be very inconsistent to be colorized differently from the rest of the buttons.

Anywayz, the first priority for now is to fix the action buttons ("suggested action", "destructive action", etc) and the infobars ("info", "warning", "error", etc) which are currently colorized with a background color gradient for gtk3, and this s*cks - Nov 07 2017
Yes, those are symlinks. If they allow you to upload files, you can upload the 3.0.1 archive (it's all public after all, so no harm done) - Nov 06 2017
I just tried with command line and, again, the links DO show up. Try creating a temp folder and extract everything inside that folder from command line (unzip - Nov 06 2017
Then the only explanation i can think of is that there's something wrong with your archive manager, i re-downloaded 3.0.1 right now and they DO show up in my archive manager. Dunno what else to say, try to extract with command line or smth, i really don't have a clue how they do show up for me and thay don't for you - Nov 06 2017
Well, that would explain why you don't see anything in the theme list, but it's strange because the shortcuts are there, they are in the archive. For example, the shortcut in the "Classic" theme's gtk-2.0 is the 10-byte link 'gtkrc' here . I checked the other shortcuts and they are all in the archive, you don't see these shortcuts when you open the archive? - Nov 06 2017
This is really, really weird, as you can see in the comment below, they apparently work just fine for UgoYak. I really don't have a clue on what's wrong right now, i'll try to look into it. - Nov 05 2017
Okay, i guess i fixed that now. - Nov 05 2017
Uh, okay, i'll try to fix that :) - Nov 05 2017
One more thing: does 'Xfce Evolution Classic' show up in themes? - Nov 05 2017
Strange, just downloaded from sf to check the packge and it works here just fine (xfce 4.12/xubuntu 17.04). I'll try to find someone who has mint to see what's happening.

Are you sure you copied EACH INDIVIDUAL FOLDER directly in the ~/.themes directory (i.e. you must end up with '~/.themes/Xfce Evolution Classic' , '~/.themes/Xfce Evolution Bronze' , etc)? - Nov 05 2017
ummm... i have this old love affair w/ sourceforge :) - Oct 16 2017
and now up again :D - Sep 28 2017
sf down again! this is becoming ridiculous - Sep 27 2017 - Sep 27 2017
sourceforge was down (uh oh!), it's back online now. - Sep 27 2017
Then again, it's just a matter of taste - Sep 21 2017
Papirus: i don't like it, nor any other icon set which changes the default icons *for applications*, i find it very distracting, to see an icon which is not familiar, especially when the style is crystal, or flat, etc, because then the app icons that are not included set look very different from what i'm used to... - Sep 21 2017

Uh, i just managed to rate it, have no clue what i did, all of the sudden, after i wrote the comment above, the '+' button became green when i hovered it and it allowed me to click it. So, although i managed to rate it, my question still remains. Was it because i had to write a comment first? Hmmm... - Feb 06 2018
Nice and clean, but still requires some polishing. - Feb 06 2018
Nice and clean, but a couple of suggestions (well, by my taste, and after a very brief first look):
- scrollbar buttons
- make the toolbar grey in Gtk2 (e.g. nautilus, where the location toobar buttons are on white background)
- borderline under the menu bar

This is the first theme i was about to rate, but i don't know how to do it!!! I clicked on the '+' button and nothing happens (it just scrolls the images)! I also clicked on the heart, it became purple, but nothing happened to the rating. How on earth can i rate a theme? :D - Feb 06 2018
