[So far I've done...]
  • Searched for people having similar issues and read all the posts here.

  • Tried searching thru the posts on deviantart although they're forum board is really irritating and I can't seem to view all the newer pages but I'll try there again later.


  • I know you mentioned you were going to put out a sweeping release for later versions of Gnome3 skipping 3.4 altogether. I see you updated it in December.

    [Questions]
  • Did you update it to 3.6? Am I doomed for failure? The readme just says Gtk3

  • I'm on quantal and I put an error log up here: http://guszorro.kodingen.com/log.text you can see some warnings but nothing serious, is there any other information I could provide that would be helpful?

    YES

    This seemed to do the trick! FlatStudioDark and Light still don't look quite right when looking at folders, but all themes skin gtk2 apps properly (ie chrome menuns, eclipse).

    FlatStudio Looks Good (https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-eoENDmrREW8/UQKf6xBP2II/AAAAAAAAAlE/_lm0eGJodKM/s1048/fs-lookin-good.png)

    Flat Light Still Doesn't Skin the folder 100% but its approaching that... (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-N3DvBgVGAuo/UQKf6-sFvXI/AAAAAAAAAlE/IXTQxhsQzRY/s1048/light-not-so-much.png)

    Your themes don't cause any terminal output anymore, which is a good thing I guess, but it also gives us no additional info. I'm pretty happy having both FlatStudio and the Gray version fully working though so I'll stop bugging you but if you ever want any help testing and resolving those issues I'm happy to pitch in my efforts.

    Thanks so much for your help changing those permissions! - Jan 25 2013
    OK so I did these extra steps:

    1) Re-downloaded your theme pack. There's no MD5 or anything (I'm not that anal anyway) so check this screen snap to validate size if you want.
    (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-quAP1-ahQXU/UQIeK3LBL3I/AAAAAAAAAj8/OCpfYs1RnSI/s883/2-archive-properties.png)

    2) Extracted without error those files. (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-crrWJwHY8BM/UQIeKzBqyWI/AAAAAAAAAkA/kmIK_aPOXmk/s796/3-errorless-extraction.png)

    3) Removed the old FS files, re-copied the new ones, set my metacity and gtk back to Adwaita. (How boring and curvy :/) (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-vbcSFdqmuUI/UQIeLH2024I/AAAAAAAAAkM/7TTgeYtQglc/s755/4-reset-to-adwaita-reinstall-fs.png)

    3) So I'm still getting the same results. Next I have some interesting terminal output for you!

    [SCENARIO A]
    Ran 'gnome-tweak-tool' from the terminal (a gtk app itself)
    With Adwaita as the selected theme

    [What Happened]
    A whole bunch of warnings, which I think is likely normal. I've seen this before and on several systems I have so I feel like this isn't an issue (maybe I pre-fail already I dunno)

    SO I keep going.

    [SCENARIO B]
    Re-run GTT, get the same warnings, then I select 'FlatStudioDark'

    [What Happened]
    Quote:

    (gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-CRITICAL **: _gtk_css_section_to_string: assertion `section != NULL' failed

    (gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: (null): Failed to import: Error opening file: Permission denied

    (gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to parse /usr/share/themes/FlatStudioDark/gtk-3.0/settings.ini: Permission denied


    [Attempt a fix!]
    I run an ls on the offensive file and find that only the user group has read access, so I pull out an ace:
    Quote:
    sudo chmod go+r /usr/share/themes/FlatStudioDark/gtk-3.0/settings.ini


    I reset to Adwaita, kill the GTT, restart and re-select FSD. Same visual results (theme not visible and bare-fallback graphics for gtk2 app needs) but this time I got an error output exactly as before only missing that last 'Failed to parse' warning. Those first two warnings are still outputed (and don't really point me towards the problem.)

    [Compare with something that works]
    Now amid this mess FlatStudioGray works (thankfully) and this is the output I get from the terminal after I select it in the GTT.

    Same errors! So I haven't found the issue just yet. I did read the one post in some arch forums about a guy having issues with your theme that he fixed by updating some of his files, but I think mine are up to date. I'd be interested to know if any other FS users have had or are having this issue.

    Sorry for the double post I'm not sure how I accomplished that... the 1989 thing happens with any FS theme on my computer excepting FlatStudio Gray - Jan 24 2013
    I'm using Gnome 3.6 on Ubuntu Quantal and only Gray and normal FlatStudio work!

    I'd love to try the dark and light one! I've re-downloaded the theme several times and triple checked where I'm installing it. It's being listed as a theme in the tweak tool but when I select any save for FlatStudio or 'F/S Gray', I'm not getting FlatStudio, rather I get the 1989 look.

    Happy to send back any additional relevant data u can think of. P.S. I noticed in my own screen snap i got errors opening certain directories in the tree because I didn't run tree as root I'm performing other tests and gonna see I shoudln't maybe use this theme from my ~/.themes - Jan 24 2013

    Thanks! I'll keep working on this and updating it till then! - Sep 21 2010
    Thanks so much! I've never submitted anything anywhere it feels good to be appreciated!

    I've noticed you've posted your own cool work around this website and done some work with icons- do you know of any simple ways (or online reousrces that explain) scripting in inkscape?

    Thanks for the kudos man! - Sep 21 2010
