Description:

# Description
Reduces excessive padding from the default GNOME, Adwaita to make it more compact. Some of the additional tweaks include:

Window shadow being reduced to get rid of the "dirty" look Adwaita has.
New window buttons.
The appmenu icon in the topbar has been removed (with spacing accounted for)
The spacing in third-party indicators and the aggregate menu have been tweaked to make it all appear uniform
Additional Dash to Dock styling to make the dock feel more "complete"
A couple more tasteful design tweaks such as removing the progressbar borders all for a cleaner look
The end goal is to provide a sleaker, more streamlined GNOME experience without the need for too many extensions and additional tools.

# Installation
Copy the folders to [username]/.themes or /usr/share/themes for a global installation.

# Recommend extensions
Dash to Dock, Dynamic Panel Transparency (don't hide corners) + Top Icons Plus.

# Move window buttons:
Just in case you're curious and don't know how. In terminal:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,minimize,maximize:'

V1.3 2 days ago

Dash to dock users have an even fancier dock. Looking glass text has been fixed in the light shell variant. Borders around progressbars have been removed because they were just really ugly. Padding (don't freak out) has been added to make a couple buttons, mostly image buttons look less "weird"

I wanted to share something with you and see what you think?

.titlebar:not(headerbar),
headerbar {
padding: 2 5px;
min-height: 34px;
border-width: 0 0 0.5px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);

It looks a little different on different apps. not sure why yet.

Wow. I really the result. It lends a really elegant look to the titlebar but I think that's the problem. Too much flair. I'll probably fork Minwaita without self imposed constraints so maybe I could use it for that.

I love the compact nature of this theme but now gnome shell is light grey rather than the original black and I an't see a way to switch back. Do I have to roll back to 1.2.1 or is there another way around this? Thank you

No, that was my mistake. The light shell css file was being used by the dark (normal) version by accident. I've corrected that and you can redownload the archive. Sorry about that.

I think -gtk-icon-filter is gtk4 only and hasn't been back-ported to gtk3.

Perhaps you can also modify the icons size in the Activities overwiew ? In gnome-shell.css we can find

.icon-grid {
spacing: 30px;
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 136px;
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 136px; }
.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 96px; }

Reducing the size will probably give less impression to some people than GNOME is only designed for tablets.

That's a great idea. I came out with this:

.icon-grid {
spacing: 0px;
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 96px;
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 64px;
.overview-icon-with-label{text-align: center;} // the label container
.overview-icon-with-label:last-child{spacing: 48px;} // the label itself
.overview-icon { icon-size: 64px;}
}

Which looks fantastic but folders end up looking weird. I'd try and correct that but looking glass doesn't let you select anything in "All", only "Frequent" and I don't think folders end up there so... sigh. I'll upload this theme onto Github as well so you can contribute if you find a way to get around that.

Looks really nice and appealing, but will it ever work with Gnome 3.18 on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS? I'm not keen on updating gnome to check if the theme works, also - I'd like to retain stability ... please let me know how to make it work under Gnome 3.18

Have you tried it? I want to know because I haven't had anyone let me know if it's not working with anything under 3.20. It might for all I know, I've only verified that it works on 3.20 and up. Adwaita Compact (what this is built on top of) has a 3.16 version posted on GitHub. I can just make the same changes I made with this version if you'd like.

Yikes. Those errors are normal, they are things I need to fix on my end and yes, the scrollbar is a bit too small. I'll update the theme soon enough but for the time being, adding this at the end of gtk.css should help with the scrollbar being too small:

scrollbar{
min-width: 20px;
}

scrollbar contents{
min-width: 18px;
}

thank you. with 20px -->10px and 18px--> 0px... at moment is working for me. This theme needs only little fine-tunings, but it is nearly finished and perfect. What y noticed was only: scrollbar in Nautilus to small, right click in menu in places in Nautilus ... "hover" is white and the same to the rest, in gedit if you are searching something and "the counter of find objects" do Not fit fine in textframe... I hope you understand what i meant. Compared with arc-ocx and united gnome y stay with Minawita ;)
Thx again for your hard Work.

I like it but how do you remove the outline on the header bar/titlebar buttons?

I put instructions on how to do it in the description. I'll probably push out a different version with this in a couple days. I don't think I can help with your Firefox problem though, sorry. It looks fine on my end. Can you possibly give me more info? Are you using the light version or the dark? Any themes or extensions?

I am using the light version. It's interesting that it seems to have begun showing a light titlebar on firefox now but it doesn't integrate completely. If I use keepassx it uses a dark titlebar. Theme is very good but there are a few minor issues. If there is a way to send you screen shots. Let me know in a private message.

V1.2.2 3 days ago

Adwaita actually has a light variant of the shell theme but if you choose to compile it there'll be a couple bugs all over the place because of static values being used here and there that only works for the dark theme. I just tweaked it a bit and modified the default assets to fit in with the light theme. Also, padding for lestcape's global menu has been added if you're using that extension.

V1.2.1 9 days ago

More dash to dock tweaks. The volume slider in GNOME Shell is smaller and sleeker. On the non-shell side, the window shadow has been turned down to get rid of that "dirty" look and the context menu highlight colour is back to the way it was, apparently it's like that in the original Adwaita.

V1.2 10 days ago

The dark version works for GTK2 apps. The blue highlight colour is now used in all context menus. Dash to dock users have a more noticeable running and focused indicators (that remains consistent with the rest of Adwaita) as opposed to the old running dot.
