Description:

Nextwaita
A theme developed by PaulXFCE


Nextwaita is based on a snapshot of the newly developed New Adwaita (coming out with Gnome 3.32) (GGPL v2)

While I appreciate the effort of the Gnome-team into developing a new default theme, there are a number of issues that hampers the outrol. One of the longstanding issue is the size of the buttons and the headerbars. Adwaita is multipurpose: it needs to be big enough for touch-enabled screens, and at the same time usuable enough to be used in a desktop environment.

Nextwaita is desktop-orientated. For that reason the headerbar is reduced, the buttons overall have less padding, the tabs have smaller footprint.

Nextwaita uses a grayscaled color-pallet, instead of the brownish colors used troughout the new adwaita theme.

The switch-buttons that the present snapshot of new Adwaita provide, are not yet developed bugfree. So I provided a slightly different version, that addresses these issues.

Nextwaita uses different radio- and checkbuttons, provides different sliders; and all this without the need for external graphics.

For the moment the Gnome-Development-team has not provided a GTK2-component for their team.

Nextwaita supports GTK2, that works seemsless with GTK3.

New:

As requested, there is now a trimmed version for those with low screen-resolution:
Smaller headerbar, titlebar, buttons, radio-and-checkbuttons ;reduced menu-sizes and sidebar-items.

Nextwaita-Low-Res and Nextwaita-Low-Res-3.30

New:

The Dark-theme has had a complete make-over.
The original New Adwaita -dark-theme is - in my opinion - a bit to dark, and the font-color to light.
So it is a strain to your eyes, if you use it for a long period of time.
So I made the theme less dark and the font darker. I Changed the radio- and checkbuttons, slider and markers also.

The new dark theme is now set as standard for the 1.3 release.
And it also available as a separate download (Nextwaita-Dark), both in the normal, as the 3.30 version.

Please try before commenting.

This theme is meant to be simple, cool, easy to the eyes, and above all consequent in its design. Meant for day-to-day use.

So, desktop-users, this is for you !

How to install:

There are 6 versions available:

-Nextwaita
-Nextwaita 3.30
-Nextwaita-Low-Res
-Nextwaita-Low-Res-3.30
-Nextwaita-Dark
-Nextwaita-Dark-3.30

Ubuntu-users should stick to the first version. Others who have installed Gnome 3.30 choose the latter.


just untar the downloaded file and drop it in the '.themes'-folder (You may have to create it first). Use gnome-tweaks and choose the theme;

Good theme, although I still think your Pro-Dark-gtk is the best theme and it's easier on the eyes - not too bright, not too dark.

+Best looking dark theme I think I have ever seen. Colors are just perfect. I can't wait until I see it with the xfwm4 theme. I really can't believe how good it looks. Congratulations people are gonna love this one.

Thanks. I am using it with xfce anyways and the xfwm4 theme and the panel issues are the only problems that I can find. Thanks again and like others I find your themes to be the most complete. May I suggest the Newaita icons to go with these themes because they look great and like your themes they are really complete set of icons that also have the ability to change colors.

Great job. Not too far removed from Adwaita, so apps overriding it don't look broken, and flatpaks not supporting this theme don't look alien.

I like the colors better than gnome's adwaita refresh.

Thank you, paulxfce

thanks,
I'm still working on it.
The dark-theme NewAdwaita uses, is in my opinion to dark, and the fontcolor too white. So I'm trying to improve the readability.

+++++ ".. consequent as possible" I'm voting your theme up for that particular reason. Your themes seems to be among the most well thought and crafted. Now comes the bummer. I have a a screen laptop of 1280x1040. How do i decrease the header bars to smaller, less gap to the buttons? I'd really like to use it with a smaller more compact theme. Thank you for a solid theme.
