Flexium

GTK3 Themes by paulxfce 27 comments

Checkboxes and radio buttons in the "inconsistent" state render as red squares in Flexium-3.32-V2. Same happens in Flexi-Gnome-1.1. This is with GTK 3.24.23.

I think updating my rating has destroyed my earlier review text and your replies to it. Sorry. Just want to thank you for your ongoing work on this too, it's rare and brilliant to see so much dedication to getting things right!

(I'm a light variant user for Eye Reasons and daytime screen use, but most are too bright overall for night use. The balancing act must be... tricky.) - Sep 30 2020

Thanks for the update on the focus highlights and the slightly more Skeu'morphically real feeling buttons. Version 7.7 (20200926) has a really nice feel to it again, though I still prefer the older, slightly darker background grey from 7.6.1 or before (picky, picky, picky!) - Sep 30 2020

I really like this. Good contrast, keyboard navigable, and there are just far too few light but not glaringly all-white themes out there. These days my eyes crave consistent light levels when switching (meaning light mode themes, realistically), but they need contrast too.

(... I miss Mediterranean Nights and medium greys ...)

It'd be OK to add shadows behind windows. I am old, and I remember when Amigas and Macs started doing this

I could tell it was from the same maker as Skeu almost by looking. I love that theme too. Flat themes are a usability disaster and need to be stopped, so keep up the good work! It's nice to see something that treats UI as an expressive language that lowkey explains how it's to be used as it all unfolds and happens. - Jul 22 2020

Thanks so much for adding the gtk2 support! It makes qt5 apps look good too, with the older and more reliable QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 method. This is a really massive improvement, and it really helps, so thanks again!

I still really love the contrasts within the dark greys of this theme, and the unusual lighter title bars. Aesthetically it's really pleasing overall, somehow.

Please can you add a keyboard focus highlight for buttons? This is really important for accessibility! The Skeu and Menta themes look good at this, and even Adwaita gets the job done in a basic but ugly way. If you can navigate gtk3-widget-factory without the mouse, you're on the right track!

The background color for highlighted text is too close to the text entry background color where there isn't any text. It makes highlighting text hard with the mouse. Quickest example I can think of is in Nautilus, and pressing Ctrl+L to enter a location manually. It highlights the current path for you, but you don't necessarily see that with this theme as of 1.5 / 1.5.1 even the blue-highlight variant. It'd be OK to reduce text contrast in the highlighted area I think, and lighten the highlight's background color so it's distinct? - Jul 22 2020
Pandora glowing theme

I really love the cyberpunk neon palette here. I just wish I could use very dark themes long-term without a web page or devhelp blasting me with glare every so often.

It'd be good if you could persuade Mutter to draw a 1px outline in the highlight color for GTK2/X11/Qt apps, even if it can't draw non-black glows like Xfwm4 and GTK3 CSD can. Maybe check out what the Neo-To theme does? - Jun 21 2020

Hi - I love how consistent and broad this theme is. Juicy colors!

Can you add an icon for the restic backup program generally, and maybe its unofficial restatic UI please? The main restic project has a cute but over-busy logo already, which has some (er,) unique elements that could be rendered nicely your way!

Seconding the call for a good bug tracker we can post screencaps in and stuff. GitLab and GitHub both have good ones built in.

Git can be a bit daunting at first, but I'm sure there'd be plenty of help from folks on here. - May 05 2020

Sorry, that got truncated. Looks like you can't use Unicode smileys here. Should have had the following para:

They need " s inactive_color_2" appending to their colour definition. The "Condensed" variants don't suffer from this. - May 04 2020

XFCE/XFWM4 Themes by d3p4z

Hi, thanks for porting it! I've always quite liked this one.

Quick bug report: the "right-inactive.xpm" file for all the standard sized variants (Alphacube Simple, Alphacube Light and Alphacube Color) doesn't use symbolic color, so the themes looks wrong when the GTK colour isn't exactly #e7e7e7 - May 04 2020

Sorry, to clarify: I just assume it's using the GTK3 style somehow for those colors because the Debian testing of 4.14 package is currently built against gtk3. Here's the changelog for the new release, and it indicates that the project as a whole is heading in that direction: https://xfce.org/download/changelogs/4.14 - May 01 2020

Retro, mid/light grey styles that look good with the gnome-colors icon theme in an appropriate color. Thank you for the thought given to future hackability, and the useful preview screenshots!

It comes with a matching Xfwm4 theme with good resize grips and Fitts's Law -compliant upper corners when you maximize the window. The window manager theme suffers from some color errors for stuff newer than Debian 10's Xfwm 4.12 due to its transition into 4.14 and gtk3, but it's generally inoffensive. Can the bottom resize grips be made L-shaped, please?

There are still a few rough edges with the GTK theme where things aren't styled that should be, and some slightly broken defaults with some of the sub-themes. It's more than made up for by the massive degree of configurability, and by a really active maintainer. I'm looking forward to the next release!

I'd love a plank theme that styles like the Xfce panel :) - Apr 30 2020

Hello, thanks for making this! Your work is what persuaded me to make an account here, just to feed back to you.

It's *fantastic* to see some chunky, contrasty, and colorful mid-to-light value themes, and ClassicLooks really delivers when you get to grips with its configuration. It really stands out amongst all the wonky macOS pastiches and "material design" mistakes out there. The designs look good on a daytime work PC in sunlight and at night in a darkened room.

(One quibble: I don't like tabs that don't look like tabs, but thank you for giving us the option of tweaking that)

Couple of glitches under Debian 10's GTK (libgtk-3-0 3.24.5-1):

Nautilus (nautilus 3.36.1.1-1+b1) doesn't have a styled main area, it just gets whatever the normal window "gray" color is, which looks odd. I guess it should look more like Thunar? To fix this, I used

.nautilus-window notebook scrolledwindow {
background-color: @canvas_bg_color;
}

This should probably have some recessed indent too so it looks like the sidebar. I don't know how to style that, sorry.

Also, Eye of GNOME (eog 3.28.4-2+b1) suffers from transparent toolbars in fullscreen mode. I fixed that with

.fullscreen revealer toolbar {
background-color: @bg_color;
}

but it should probably receive the appropriate toolbar styling too. - Apr 30 2020
