Hi,

Here is a screenshot showing a comparison of the clock display: http://i56.tinypic.com/vqqv74.jpg

Top is AbsoluteLuna, Bottom is LambdaMod 0.4
Panel size = 36 pixels.

The Application Font has no effects. I have reduced the font size to a small value, I see the display shrinked but it is still on 1 line with AbsoluteLuna. There is no change in the clock settings when I switched from one theme to the other. So the text wrapping is probably something coded in the theme settings. Hope you can figure that out. - Oct 01 2011

Quote:Most modern themes have that menu-titlebar unified look, which is very nice, but makes it hard to distinguish which window have the focus.

This is EXACTLY why I like your them better (window having focus has a color titlebar). In my opinion, the modern GUI with unified color for titlebar menu, hiding the scrollbar, putting +/-/close on the left, global menu, etc. are just gimmicks which have no real productivity improvement.

Thanks for the update. The new triangle icon is still too big. It stands out a little bit too much compared to the folder beside it.

Can you have a look at this theme: Lambda-Mod 0.4 http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lambda-Mod?content=141058

It has a smaller triangle icon which I think is well balanced.

Regarding the taskbar in Absolute Luna, I think some improvements might be possible:

- Set panel size to 36 pixels. Absolute Luna, the clock displays Date & Time in one single line. This take more space. Have a look at Lambda Mod 0.4, it can display Date & Time in two lines.

-There is not enough contrast between active / inactive tasks.

I hope these comments makes sense. Looking forward to the update. - Sep 30 2011

Thank you, thank you & thank you.

For putting the color on the tiblebar and make it configurable. This is the only gripe I had about the original absolute. I thought the author didn't have enough skills to make color titlebar but now I learn from your comment that it was intentional.

One thing I would like you to review in Absolute Luna. Nautilus, left pane, folder tree. The triangle icon used for expand/collpase the parent folder is really too big. Can you male it smaller? Or may be use the +/- icon instead?

Thanks in advance.

Jaehoo Elementary OSX

GTK2 Themes by jaehoo 8 comments

I would like to increase the text contrast, I changed text color to #000000. After that, in any forms where there are tabs, the inactive tabs become all black.

In my opinion, the idea to make the inactive tabs darker is a good idea. But can you make it a constant slightly darker gray than the active bar? This means the background color of the inactive tab is no longer related to the text color.

Hope that makes sense. Thanks. - Sep 06 2011
Jaehoo Elementary OSX

GTK2 Themes by jaehoo 8 comments

I extracted into /usr/share/themes to make the theme available for all users.

The theme is not visible in Appearance Preferences preview screen. Must Click on "Customize" and select separately "Jaehoo Elementary OSX" in "Controls" and "Window Border". This is very inconvenient. - Sep 05 2011
Windows Colors Revisited

GTK2 Themes by fredbird67 18 comments

Hi,

The issue (lost of titlebar) occurred when I began playing with Dual Monitor, NVidia driver, with "Separate X Screen" option. When I changed to "Twinview" option, which combine the two monitors into a single virtual screen, the issue was gone.

May be this is a X Server or NVidia driver bug? In anyway, it's not worth wasting your time on this bug. Sorry for the vague bug report. - Aug 21 2011
Windows Colors Revisited

GTK2 Themes by fredbird67 18 comments

Hi,

I think I am going to remove this theme for now. Since I use it, strange things happen when I change to another theme. For example, the title bar is lost. When I move back to Windows Color (I saved it under a different name), the titlebar is not restored.

Reading in some posts in Ubunti forum, some people advised to type sudo metacity --replace
This solve temporarily but the issue is back eac time I change theme. Also while the terminal is opened, I saw this message appear very frequently:

/usr/share/themes/Desert Revisited/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:111: Murrine configuration option "hilight_ratio" will be deprecated in future releases. Please use "highlight_shade" instead.

Hope there will be a more Gnome friendly version in the future. - Aug 20 2011
Windows Colors Revisited

GTK2 Themes by fredbird67 18 comments

Thank you for the detailed answer.
No Wallis theme under Gnome. Now I understand why only some themes in Gnome are compatible with yours. LinuxMint has AuroraMint, Carbon, Cassandra, Felicia. These themes allow to apply the "controls layout" from Window Color Revisited theme.

The one I use is actually Gilouche Square http://ubuntu-art.org/content/show.php/Gilouche+Squared?content=75789
This theme has a magic trick. Its titlebar color is able to change automatically to the color of the theme. - Aug 20 2011

Windows Colors Revisited

GTK2 Themes by fredbird67 18 comments

It was not the permission issue. I was expecting to see the preview in the Appearance Preferences window. It turns out I had to click Customize and Select the Controls tab.

This theme is simple and nice. Thanks. - Aug 20 2011

Thanks to the Orta Settings Manager I have been able to change the little details of the theme. The care the author had taken to fine tune this theme is absolutely perfect.

Thanks very much. - Aug 11 2011
Lambda-Mod

GTK2 Themes by lucpel 9 comments

Hi,

Lambda v0.3 is PERFECT. Absolutely love the new titlebar size and especially when it reflects the choice of color.

Forgot to tell you that the scrollbar is excellent in your theme.

This theme must win the Nobel prize of GTK Theme. Thanks very much. - Apr 24 2011
Lambda-Mod

GTK2 Themes by lucpel 9 comments

Hi, The bigger titlebar is welcome. May be make it the same size than the original Lambda would be even better. I found that the thin bar in Lambda-mod 0.1 gave an unbalanced impression.

In my opinion, the originality in this Lambda-Mod theme is the color theme. It is so refreshing compared to many other themes, which for some strange reasons, only use black and white.

I hope you will create a collection of various colors. You like red OK, can you also add Green, Blue, Brown?

Thanks in advance.

Lamda-Mod

This theme also requires the same Murrina engine. I uncompress and copy it to /usr/share/themes and it works right away (It shows up in System / Preferences / Appearance).

Hope you can review it and figure out the issue in MurrinaSeasons 1.4 - Apr 22 2011

Wish you could implement some more colors. Here are some nice ones:

Oh may it the dark version is included in the download but you didn't update the screenshot?

I tried to install but how?
Drop the *.bz2 file in the Appearance windows got an error (not a theme). Unzip and copy to /usr/share/themes doesn't work either. The them doesn't show in Appearance.

Is it compatible with Gnome? Sorry for the silly question but can you give some basic instructions to install? - Apr 15 2011

GTK2 Themes by DDZ 31 comments

Hi,

What is the application that you use to preview and install the theme as shown in the screenshot?

I find these colors of this theme too vivid and they stand out too much, causing distraction on a long run. Can you make another variation with same colors but darker tones?

Thanks - Apr 12 2011

GTK2 Themes by 2sev 77 comments

How come you are bad designer?!? Your theme looks better than that of those who are designers.

Thanks for the trick of the scrollbar shade. Can you show me how to color the titlebar as well?

As for the color of the titlebar. Here is a nice Blue and Green shades imitated from Zukitwo:

Personally, I think Absolute would look great with a blue (or green) titlebar. - Apr 10 2011
absolute

GTK2 Themes by 2sev 77 comments

Hi,

This is my most favorite GTK theme. Thank you vary much. Love the Absolute & Absolute Squared. I hope in future versions, you will add some color variations. For example: titlebar in Blue or Green. For some reason, the themes are now all gray, white or black. In my opinion, adding a color touch would give the theme some original touches.

Also can you make the scrollbar darker?

Thanks in advance. - Apr 07 2011
Equinox GTK Engine

GTK2 Themes by tiheum 257 comments

Hi,

The Equinox Evolution series look weird. In the screenshot, can you please show a screen having a scrollbar?

I test Equinox 1.40 on LinuxMint 10 (based on Ubuntu 10.10). The scrollbar is minuscule. It's a gray thin line. Is it intentional or is it a bug? Because the scrollbar in Equinox Evolution 1.30 looks thicker.

Please put Equinox original back, especially the Equinox Light and Equinox Glass.

Equinox orginal themes

GTK2 Themes by tiheum 4 comments

Hi,

I like these original theme better. Especially the Equinox Light and the Equinox Glass. The Equinox Evolution which are now official in 1.40 has a serious bug. The scrollbar is minuscule, looks like a thin line.

Franfly I would rather drop the Equinox Evolution and make the Equinox Original the official themes. - Apr 07 2011

Used this skin with Ubuntu 9.04 x64. The taskbar is unreadable. The text is white in a white background.

Taskbar here is the standard Gnome panel in the bottom.Your screenshot show another kind of taskbar that is why you don't have this problem.

Can you please fix?

Thanks in advance.
