9 Great effort to make an Adwaita-looking theme which is also skeuomorphic!
The only things that would make it better for me are: bigger window buttons (I love huge buttons there) and a way to achieve better contrast between windows (at least between active and backdrop windows). Because this theme is very dark, that is something difficult to achieve without using something such as selected background color for active window border, for example...

I just checked out the theme and, may I offer some (hopefully constructive) feedback? You see, the biggest reason I liked this theme was the skeuomorphic buttons, and the way they are integrated with the modern design sensibilities. But this panel is kinda flat. The biggest challenge I had, when trying to make a panel myself was that I couldn't find assets that you used for wide buttons in GTK. If only I had that asset, I could add those buttons to the panel and it would fit much better with the rest of the theme.

Just in time! Just yesterday I tried to mess around with your theme and try to construct the panel myself using your assets, but it proved too difficult haha. Thanks again for all your hard work!

Another comment, in gnome web there is no tab separator : https://i.imgur.com/BYwXONu.png

There should be some contrast like in Adwaita: https://i.imgur.com/Q8Wp63o.pn

This is a new tab widget that gnome web has adopted, but other apps should have it soon so it would be great to have support.

one request though, can you add support for the budgie desktop? it shouldn't be that hard, some resources if you use sass: https://gitlab.com/hrdwrrsk/AdwMod-theme/-/blob/master/src/gtk-3.0/_budgie-desktop.scss

That is in my TODO list:

- Cinamon panel theme
- Finish GTK4 theme

Probably for the next update it will work for budgie :D

10 very nice looking theme! good gtk-4 support too. however (note my version is couple commits old, might be fixed now) minor quirk: in gtk 4 apps, apps use the icons from the icon theme in the headerbar, instead of the min/max/close from Skeuos. still an awesome theme. changing the background would be an awesome thing, indeed. I would love to have a gruvbox variant but it wouldn't fit with the colorscheme

It is better but the dark is still too dark. If you don't have time to do a lighter dark. Can you make a white glow around the border of the window in focus? When there are several overlapping dark windows, even with the close buttons in color, it is hard to figure out the various windows. When there is only one or two windows on the desktop, this theme does indeed looks nice.

Great theme. There's something weird going on with the firefox buttons though. The distance between the outmost (close) buttons and the other two (maximize, minimize) seems off: https://i.imgur.com/z0MEpW0.png My buttons are on the left side, but this doesn't seem to make problems with other GTK apps like nautilus or evince. from my settings.ini: gtk-theme-name=Skeuos-Grey-Dark gtk-icon-theme-name=WhiteSur-dark gtk-font-name=Roboto 12 gtk-cursor-theme-name=macOSBigSurcursor gtk-cursor-theme-size=0 gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_BOTH gtk-toolbar-icon-size=GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR gtk-button-images=1 gtk-menu-images=1 gtk-decoration-layout=close,maximize,minimize:menu Hope that helps.

[20201104, Skeuos-Blue-Light variant] Looks great. I'm normally not super fond of themes that change appearance between focussed and unfocussed windows, but I really get what you're trying to do with flat vs. intuitively usable (skeumophic, non-flat, whatever) and I like it so far. Could you show gtk3-widget-factory in the screenshots, please? Idea, take it as you wish: I feel that the area contrast isn't quite "there" yet between buttons and backgrounds, between header/titlebars and content, and especially between listbox contents and headers. Perhaps the general lightness could be made less glaringly white (75-85%), and the overall darkness of the dark theme be made correspondingly less pitch black (15-25%)? I feel that this could be a way to improve area contrast a bit, and it doesn't have to come at the expense of text contrast. Use case: laptop, light theme user for font legibility, daytime + nighttime use, and "glare shock" avoidance when switching between a styled dark window and unavoidably non-styled things like web pages that tend to be black text on white. In dim conditions, I dial the backlight down. A light variant that isn't too glaring seems to really help me a lot there!
