Description:

NOTE:
======
Unfortunately, after years of Gnome3, even minor updates of GTK+ or Gnome-Shell break themes and waste hours of work.


GnomishBeige is a clean beige theme for GTK3, plus a matching GTK2 theme that depends on the latest Murrine and Pixmap engines.

*** Current Dependencies ***

GTK3 = 3.12.X (works with 3.10 and maybe with 3.8 too)
gtk2-engines-murrine >= 0.98.1.1 (for GTK2)
gtk2-engines-pixbuf >= 2.24.10 (for GTK2)
Metacity >= 2.34 (for GTK2)

*** Notes ***

1) Ubuntu users should remove the package(s) "overlay-scrollbar" if they see blackened widget areas or if they just want to have the default scrollbars. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/overlay-scrollbar/+bug/1064147

2) Please take a look at the file "README" in the theme folder for a tip on Epiphany.

3) You won't need the source package unless you want to modify the theme or make a deb or an rpm package from it.

There are only three instances of this font in gnome-shell.css, and only one of them, in the "#panel" block, is related to Panel. You could comment it out.

BTW, I'll update the theme soon to support gnome-sushi.

Thanks for info... Tried, substituted with Cantarell, but bold in this font is too large for the panel, and I'm too lazy (and unknowledgeable) to start figuring out which other font to use and/or which bold entries to change. In the meantime, I'll stick with your setup (which, in its entirety, is quite a nice one).

You could also comment out "font-weight: bold;" in the blocks "#panelLeft, #panelRight" and "#panelCenter" to see if your chosen font fits well.

Hello,

Thanks for this theme. Everything works fine, but the menu colors for the GTK3 applications like Evince is blueish instead of greyish like for the GTK2 applications.

It would be nice to have something homogeneous here.

Thank you for your comment.

I haven't used blue at all. All GTK3 menus are dark brown with a mild gradient, as in the screenshot. Could you please show me a screenshot of those "blueish" menu colors?

I forgot to ask:

Do you have gnome-themes-standard-3.2.X?

(1) Do you see that menu color only in Evince or
everywhere?
- Seems to be related to GTK3 apps only, same issue with File Roller and Seahorse. GTK2 apps have a dark grey menu.

(2) Do you have GTK+-3.2?
- Yes, v3.2

(3) Does Openbox have any color customization tool
you might have used to change some colors?
- Yes, it has, but I didn't touch anything.

(4) Are the menu colors distorted also in GNOME
Fallback mode or GNOME-Shell?
- I don't have GNOME.

Do you have gnome-themes-standard-3.2.X?
- Yes installed, same issue.

Thank YOU for your patience and cooperation. The problem was that some systems don't pick up colors directly from the file "settings.ini". I'll update the theme soon after making some other changes too.

OK. I think I've found a clue now. Please download the following archive, extract it, and replace the file "gtk.css" from the theme with it. Then log out and log in and see if the issue is solved.

Please tell me the result. Thanks in advance.

Out of curiosity, I installed Openbox-3.4.11.2 in my Debian. All the menus are as in GNOME, i.e. the GTK2 menus are dark brown and the GTK3 ones have an extra mild gradient. See here:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7793460/Openbox.png

Unfortunately, I have no idea why the menu colors are changed in your case. Please tell me if you find the cause.

BTW, I liked Openbox ;)

I can reproduce it under GNOME-SHELL on a ubuntu 11.10 live-CD.

BTW, only this theme has the menu color issue, adwaita theme and others work well.

That's strange and, at the same time, interesting. Let's see what might have made your menus have that color.

(1) Do you see that menu color only in Evince or everywhere?

(2) Do you have GTK+-3.2?

(3) Does Openbox have any color customization tool you might have used to change some colors?

(4) Are the menu colors distorted also in GNOME Fallback mode or GNOME-Shell?

i ve been using your theme for some time and i should say its pleasing...
can you make the gnome shell top panel have the adwaita look ? (side reverse curves) transparency to take up the back ground wallpaper color to give the matching effect ? just a suggestion...

Thank you for taking time and leaving this comment.

> can you make the gnome shell top panel ....?

Yes, I could make the panel have curved sides but I didn't find that pleasing with the gradient I gave it. If you want curved sides, take a look at the ".panel-corner" blocks in the CSS file of the default theme ('/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css' with most standard installations) and add a similar block to the "gnome-shell.css" file of GnomishBeige. Especially You have to play with the parameter "-panel-corner-background-color". Play with other parameters too and see if it's pleasing to your eyes.

As for transparency, I love it :) I'm even looking forward to the implementation of optional widget transparency in GTK3 -- something better than Murrine in GTK2. However, The problem with GNOME-Shell is that, unlike Compiz, it doesn't support blurring of translucent areas yet. Without this capability, transparency could be an obstacle to readability. As I prefer usability to beauty, I avoided transparency except for the activities overview, which makes the screen dark enough.

I think you should leave out that line about the font for the panel in the gtkrc. My panel looked awful with that font, to tell you the truth, so I commented out that line.

Thank you for your comment. You mean even the panel in the first screenshot is ugly? If not, maybe you don't have the font "Bitstream Charter" installed.

Yeah, but maybe just leave it to the user to set the panel font. I've never before seen anyone set a specific font for the panel like you have done. Otherwise, I love the theme and I'm using it right now.
