Description:

Yaru-Colors is a theme project to bringt different colors to Ubuntu's awesome Yaru theme.





Update 20.04.6:
- New color added as user suggestion: Cinnamon - slightly change to Orange, based on Ubuntu Cinnamon Remx
- Tried to add snap support...it's very time consuming so I'm sorry to say, that it'll take a bit longer (help needed / wanted if someone knows how to snap...)
- Last update with 20.04 base. 20.10 is already in the works!
EDIT: - Now with snap support!

Update 20.04.5:
Sorry! I've messed it up again! If you have purple switches in gnome shell, please redownload 20.04.5! I've fixed it...finally and hopefully!
- Added two new colors: Amber and Teal - based on Pop_OS! and Manjaro!
- Rewritten the installer from scratch. It's way shorter and should be easier to use! If there are any issues, please notify me!
- No updated needed if you're using the old colors. They're the same, I've just changed the version number.

Update 20.04.4:
- Finally fixed broken symlinks (this time really.......hopefully). Sorry!

Update 20.04.3:
- Fixed purple colored switches in gnome-shell (like Do-Not-Disturb)
- Fixed broken / dead symlinks for many icons. NOTE: Yaru-Colors icons inherit to stock Yaru! This saves space since I just modified a handful of files. If you're not running Ubuntu (20.04), please download the icons from Yaru's git or via package manager if possible.

Update 20.04.2:
- Modified install and uninstall scripts:
- No installation of Gnome-Shell to /usr/ anymore
- Linking files from /home/ to /usr/ when running install.sh as root for better compatibility
- Reduced icon size by removing unneeded icons, inherit icon theme is set to stock Yaru

-- BIG UPDATE --
Update 20.04.1:
- Added support for Ubuntu 20.04 by using Yaru 20.04 source
- Changed version numbers
- Redone every theme
- NEW icons!!
- NEW Color: Orange
- Changed purple color
- NEW: Cursors!!
- NEW: Unity support (brought by Yaru)
NOTE: The next update will contain less icons to save space and time (and maybe spacetime as well). The next icons packs will have stock Yaru as inherit icon pack! Coming Soon™
PLEASE NOTE: Deepblue is missing! It'll be added, soon!

Special thanks to the developers of Yaru!

Yaru-Colors themes conataing following:
- GTK 2 / 3 themes
- Gnome-Shell themes
- Yaru icons (just the necessary ones, inherit is set to stock Yaru)
- Unity theme
- Recolored cursors
- Ubuntu-Dock theme (indicators)

Following changes are made by me:
- GTK2, GTK3+ and Gnome-Shell assets and css files are changed
- For the icon pack I just recolored the folder icons and a few others. The icon theme will use Yaru as inherit theme, which means that my packs just contain recolored icons!
- Recolored the cursors to fit to each color
- Unity assets recolored
- The dock got recolored app running indicators, which are changed by script, not by file

I tried to make the installation as easy as possible.
Therefore I created an installation script called install.sh. (Tutorial below)

The installer will do a backup if something needs to be overwritten (only Ubuntu 18.10+).
It will guide you through everything and allows you to choose what you want to install.


General Information:

Please visit the GitHub page for more screenshots of every theme, issues or suggestions.

Known issues:
Snap apps aren't themed. I don't know if I will add this feature in the future, for now it doesn't work. If someone knows how to get my themes to work, please send me an email!
Most used example: Ubuntu Software
Tiny workaround: Use gtk+ inspector to change the default theme of a snap app to Yaru, this will fix the missing background, when the themes are installed as root (linked to /usr/share/themes)

Tutorial

Installation with script:
1. Run the installer with './install.sh'
2. Follow the installer
Optional:
3. Set your themes with gnome-tweak-tool
4. For gnome-shell you need the User Themes Extension for Gnome-Shell
5. To change the dock indicators, simply run the dock-indicators.sh in src
6. Done

FIY: Because of an older bug in the User Themes extension, on some systems changing the shell theme with a command doesn't work. I've added a fix to this (see Github or the installer for source). This will need root privileges, but the script will ask for this ;)

Removal with script:
1. Rund the uninstaller with './uninstall.sh'
--- if you ran the installer as root, please run this as root, as well.
2. Follow the script
3. Done

Manual install:
1. Copy your desired theme into your desired theme directory (example '/usr/share/themes' or '~/.local/share/themes')
2. Copy you desired icon pack into your desired theme directory (example '/usr/share/icons' or '~/.icons')
4. Enable your themes with gsettings commands or with gnome-tweak-tool
5. To change the dock indicator color (Ubuntu's Dash-To-Dock only), find the hex code for your desired color in the list below and enter following two commands (replace HEXCODE with your color code including #):
'gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock custom-theme-running-dots-color 'HEXCODE' 2> /dev/null'
'gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock custom-theme-running-dots-border-color 'HEXCODE' 2> /dev/null'
(take the color codes from GitHub or do it with the script from there, it'll do it for you...)

Snap install:
1. Install snap package with snap install yaru-colors (TBR)
2. Add the themes to the snap theme list by following 3 commands:
for i in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:gtk-3-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect $i yaru-colors:gtk-3-themes; done

for i in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:gtk-2-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect $i yaru-colors:gtk-2-themes; done

for i in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:icon-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect $i yaru-colors:icon-themes; done

3. Reboot or re-login

KNOWN BUGS
Snap applications, like Ubuntu Software, don't support third party themes. Instead they're using their own theme resource. On Ubuntu, the snap themes are including stock Yaru.
Fix: see above - snap support is out!

Have fun with it!
For any suggestions send me a message here or on Reddit /u/jannomag

Please take a look at the know bugs. I bet those apps are snap apps. If so, I can't fix it, it's a snap issue and it's not related with my theme.

The apps I'm saying are system applications (no Snap). Apps like GNOME Videos came installed with the distro. I use Debian GNOME 3.36 by the way.

So, I've tried both applications. Gnome Video is stock on my Ubuntu 20.04 and I've installed Foliate via the latest .deb release from github.
Both are working with the themes. I tried it on a clean VM with Ubuntu 20.04 as well, same result. Here are two screenshots using Yaru-Blue-dark and Yaru-Red:

I installed them using Pling Store (AppImage) and it was just yesterday.

So they're not system apps...
Where did you install the theme? Try a different location, for example, if they're installed in ~/.themes try ~/.local/share/themes and vice versa.

Report

j-arun-mani

I mean I installed the theme using Pling app. Pling app installed the themes in ~./themes

Ah okay. You could try to move the files to ~.local/share/themes.
If this doesn't work as well I can't help you anymore since I cannot relate this issue.

Hey there ! I installed the theme using the Github release (I mean ./install.sh) and the Yaru Colors are working great !!! I think the individual release of theme in Pling Store has some issues. But the direct install from repo is perfect and everything looks awesome !! Thanks for Yaru :)

- New install.sh - rewritten from scratch, much easier to use (hopefully)
- Added Amber and Teal

Reworked everything 5 months ago

- New icons!
- New base (Yaru 20.04)
- New Color (Orange)
- Purple changed
- Unity support
- Cursors added!

Version 2.0 1 year ago

Yaru got updated with a new light theme, so I recreated Yaru-Colors based on Yaru' 19.10.2 source!
Icons and screenshots are the same - I'll add new screenshots, when I've the time for this.
The install and uninstall scripts are also unchanged!

Maybe I'll add a new theme, called "Classic" or so, with dark title bare as in 1.0 and older Yaru versions...

It is awesome, I can use Yaru theme with Cinnamon/MATE color scheme. VS Code is still not showing black in its common bar (it shows white) unlike the original mixed Yaru theme and default in Ubuntu. Using Mint 20 with Gnome

Great work, thanks a lot for sharing it with us. Anyway I don't use it yet on my Ubuntu 19.04 because of incompatibility with my very favorite file manager (Double Commander aka. doublecmd-gtk, installed through apt, not by snap or appimage). I don't understand what makes a dark theme work with this application or not but I see that Starlabs and Adwaita-dark are theming it perfectly. I don't know the difference with a theme like yours nor which files should be included or modified, sorry to be of no help. Do you think that this issue with Double Commander could be fixed? I would be glad to use this theme as I really like it. Here's a concrete example: Yaru Blue Dark > https://i.imgur.com/xzdvKDt.png StarLabs Dark > https://i.imgur.com/FGDgJHI.png Yaru Dark (the one included by default with the latest Ubuntu release) > https://i.imgur.com/TYmRY9r.png Packages installed (all from the official Ubuntu repositories): gtk2-engines gtk2-engines-pixbuf gtk2-engines-murrine murrine-themes doublecmd-common doublecmd-gtk doublecmd-help-en doublecmd-plugins I've posted a message on application's forum to get more informations about the files to customize but nobody answered for now > https://doublecmd.sourceforge.io/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5769
