GTK3 Themes

Description:

Flat, simple and clean :)

- Inside the theme folder there is a readme.txt file with some simple instructions (styles for nautilus, change selection color, metacity-buttons)

If you are using Firefox, I recommend for this theme to install the extension FXChrome. It is not completely flat but almost ;)
https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/fxchrome/?src=api

requires:
- GNOME 3.4.x or GNOME 3.6.x (does not work on other versions of gnome)
- GTK3 theme uses unico-engine
- GTK2 theme uses gtk2-engines-murrine

There are four themes:
FlatStudio: based on the color of my other theme MediterraneanNight

FlatStudioLight: found a mockup that I really liked and in which I based for FlatStudioLight, the mockup is of Tobias Bernard's (minimal GTK theme mockup), found in
http://tobiasbernard.com/floss/minimal-gtk-theme/

FlastudioGray: soft gray frame

FlatStudioDark: flat dark theme :)

Shell theme:
-----------
i found this shell theme:
Contrail by ~theRealPadster,
inspired by the same mokup that FlatStudioLight

Hey man, awesome updates! One minor issue: when changing the unity panel css to unity-darkest, the panel text remains dark (on a dark background). I easily fixed it by taking a look at how you do it for GrayDay, but wanted to let you know.

I'd really love to see a Cinnamon theme for this. It's perfect! Almost...

on Gnome 3.6 I can't select it as my window theme. Well, I can, but it doesn't take effect.

Also, checkboxes are often ambiguous - it's impossible to tell whether it is checked or not.

Thanks.

In 1 or 2 days I hope to publish the version 1.02 adapted to Gnome 3.6.
In my testing (Ubuntu 12.10) I have no problems with Cinnamon, nemo and nautilus 3.6.
what the checkbox and radiobutton is also solved, but aesthetically it is a little different to Gnome 3.4.
In general, the theme goes well in Gnome 3.6 and Cinnamon

Thanks for your comment :)

Good to hear! I can't wait.

The theme works perfectly in Cinnamon (except having some white on light fonts in the system settings), I meant a theme for Cinnamon itself (the panel, mostly). This would probably be easier for the author of Contrail, as his Gnome-shell theme is pretty much what is required for Cinnamon... oh well. thanks for the great theme!

Great theme, as I my eyes already hurt from overusage of gradients in interfaces by everybody else. Just wish it was available in set of color of a traditional Gorilla-GTK theme, see here http://jimmac.musichall.cz/screenshots/gtk-gorilla.jpeg

If by now you just want to get that tone, is relatively easy. Basically is to change the colors bg_color and theme_bg_dark_color for which I am indicating (bg_color=#DEDFCE, theme_bg_dark_color=#DEDFCE)

From FlatStudio or FlatStudioLight or FlatStudioGray (the one you like, not FlatStudioDark!)

for GTK3
1. - Edit ../FlatStudioXXX/gtk-3.0/setting.ini and change bg_color for the following value
gtk-color-scheme = "base_color:#FDFDFD\nbg_color:#DEDFCE\............."

2. - Edit ../FlatStudioXXX/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
about line 4
@define-color bg_color #DEDFCE;

about line 41
@define-color theme_bg_dark_color @bg_color;

for GTK2
3.- edit ../FlatStudioXXX/gtk-3.0/gtkrc (similar to step 1)
line 1
gtk-color-scheme = "base_color:#FDFDFD\nbg_color:#DEDFCE"

about line 5
gtk-color-scheme = "theme_bg_dark_color:#DEDFCE\n........."

There are instructions in the readme.txt to change the selection color (very easy too)

for GTK2
3.- edit ../FlatStudioXXX/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

of course I selected "use GTK theme" in Chromium options but the issue still exists and I don't think the fault is Emerald becasue using Zutikwo theme this problem disappears.
I also checked the gtkrc file in Zutikwo e the section chrome-gtk-frame do not exist.... strange...

Ok, I found the problem :)

That happens by browsing in incognito mode, can expect to update or modify your own.
for it edit the gtkrc file leaving the chrome section as follows (copy/paste)

style "chrome-gtk-frame" {
ChromeGtkFrame::frame-gradient-size = 120
ChromeGtkFrame::frame-gradient-color = @theme_bg_dark_color
ChromeGtkFrame::inactive-frame-gradient-color = @theme_bg_dark_color
ChromeGtkFrame::frame-color = @theme_bg_dark_color
ChromeGtkFrame::inactive-frame-color = @theme_bg_dark_color

ChromeGtkFrame::incognito-frame-gradient-size = 120
ChromeGtkFrame::incognito-frame-color = @theme_bg_dark_color
ChromeGtkFrame::incognito-inactive-frame-color = @theme_bg_dark_color
ChromeGtkFrame::incognito-frame-gradient-color = @theme_bg_dark_color

ChromeGtkFrame::scrollbar-trough-color = shade (0.99, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::scrollbar-slider-prelight-color = shade (0.87, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::scrollbar-slider-normal-color = shade (0.80, @theme_bg_dark_color)
}
class "ChromeGtkFrame" style "chrome-gtk-frame"

edit the file .. /FlatStusioLight/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
on line 750 find this

style "fg_is_text_color_workaround" {
fg[NORMAL] = @text_color
fg[PRELIGHT] = @text_color
fg[SELECTED] = @selected_fg_color

there some issues:

1) when I select a folter, or a file in general, the text becomes white and the background color is light-grey: in this way any text is not readable

2) in several programs: text in the menu is white and the background color is light-grey: in this way any text is not readable

3) Chromium: the TAB bar is dark-grey; could you set it light-grey like the toolbat (home button, back and forward buttons, and so on)?

4) are you interested in developing a FlatStudio theme for Emerald?

Thanks!

sorry, I forgot to ask: would your theme be compatible with new Gnome 3.6? I use LXDE (gtk2) with some gtk3 applications from Gnome 3.4 but Gnome 3.6 is coming soon...

Yes, I have planned suit gnome 3.6 in brief

Regarding chromiun, the problem is with FlatStudio or FlatStudioLight?, I use google chrome and tabs are fine, however, I will also do tests with chromium

problem in both versions but I only use the light one because, IMHO, is really better and more relaxing. Have a look here:
http://s9.postimage.org/6x2jimm3z/chrom.jpg
don't consider the title-bar: it's white due to Emeral theme
the problem is the TAB bar, it should be light-grey like the toolbar. If you fix this and the problem of white text over light background then FlatStudio-Light could be one of the best gtk3 theme ever.

My impression is that emeral has something to do with it, that color is defined in the theme and in a standard gnome installation works fine.

in the file .../FlatStudioLight/gtk-2.0/gtkrc on line 716

# For Google Chrome/Chromium integration.
style "chrome-gtk-frame" {
ChromeGtkFrame::frame-gradient-size = 120
ChromeGtkFrame::frame-gradient-color = shade (1.00, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::inactive-frame-gradient-color = shade (1.00, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::frame-color = shade (1.00, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::inactive-frame-color = shade (1.00, @theme_bg_dark_color)

ChromeGtkFrame::scrollbar-trough-color = shade (0.99, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::scrollbar-slider-prelight-color = shade (0.87, @theme_bg_dark_color)
ChromeGtkFrame::scrollbar-slider-normal-color = shade (0.80, @theme_bg_dark_color)
}
class "ChromeGtkFrame" style "chrome-gtk-frame"

where @theme_bg_dark_color is the frame color in the theme.

Moreover, in the options page of chromium have selected the following?
- Button "using GTK+ theme"
- Checkbox "Use borders and titlebar"
