KDE4 Oxygen new port for GNOME

GTK2 Themes by kimmik 48 comments

"- Tab backgrounds don't have the right light sources, they look like the same image was just flipped around. Also, I think oxygen's active tabs glow blue."

The bottom/left/right tab-notebooks are indeed just flipped because it's a lot of work to create them, but I will correct it when I have time and feel bored. :)
The active tabs don't glow in the kde4 I am currently using parallel (KDE 4.0).

"-Checkbutton backgrounds were fixed, but radiobuttons still have slightly off bg in corners.
-Optionmenu button has different arrows than rest of theme."

Oh, I will fix it in the next update.

"-In twf, the GtkCombo doesn't have the same nice button as the ComboboxEntry button."

Unfortunately it is not possible to create nice GtkCombos (the ones with entries) because this widget is deprecated and was replaced by GtkComboBoxEntry (the pixmap engine doesn't support prober skinning of it).

"-When progressbars are smaller than a certain %, they have a larger width than the progressbar background."

Yes, I noticed that and I will try to fix it.

"-In the new update, the buttons cut off the top and bottom of icons in the window-list."

That's because I have increased the thickness of buttons. The minimum recommended panelheight is now 26px.

Thank you for reporting everything! - Aug 07 2008

Unfortunatly I found no way to fix that. But you can launch gelemental with another theme.

just execute:

env GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc gelemental

Hi, you can remove the dotted lines (handles) in the panel by including something like this in the gtkrc file:

Quote:
style "nohandles"
{
engine "pixmap"
{
image
{
function = HANDLE
recolorable = TRUE
overlay_file = "Handles/handle-v.png" #image must be transparent
overlay_stretch = FALSE
orientation = HORIZONTAL
}
image
{
function = HANDLE
recolorable = TRUE
overlay_file = "Handles/handle-h.png" #image must be transparent
overlay_stretch = FALSE
orientation = VERTICAL
}
}
}

class "*Panel*" style "nohandles"

The theme looks really awesome, specially the overall appearance of the theme is great!

But I have to ask you to stop creating themes for gnome, because you are preventing people from going to my site, by providing equal or better themes. ;) - May 26 2008

I finished the theme with this update, it looks now more consistent.

Panel:

I wanted the panel to look as simple and unobtrusive as possible, so it doesn't get in the way when you manage the windows.

Mac-like look:

It's true, it looks somehow similar to OSX's style, but I don't know why that is a bad thing. It's not like all of this theme is stolen from OSX. I think it is unique enough. :)
ps: It looks less like OSX when you choose a different iconset (although I wouldn't recommend that, because the elementary-iconset is really great). - May 21 2008

Why don't you make a theme like that?
It's very easy to create such a theme with the pixmap engine. - Aug 13 2007

Good idea but I have no plans to fully port it because it's too much work.
But I made an icontheme based on the osx icontheme that includes some of the crystal icons.

I think I can help out:
Just comment out the line in the gtkrc file (of the theme) where it defines the background-image for the menubar

something like:

engine "pixmap"
{
# Menubar background
image
{
function = BOX
state = NORMAL
file = "Menu-Menubar/menubar.png"
stretch = TRUE
}

to:

engine "pixmap"
{
# Menubar background
image
{
function = BOX
state = NORMAL
### file = "Menu-Menubar/menubar.png"
stretch = TRUE
} - Jun 15 2007

I used a screenshot from apple.com and cropped it a little bit.

"It looks nice, but you see... we miss something - the graphics engine... i think it is futile to try to copy OSX further, they introduced quicklook and tons of animations everywhere, copying the cocoa elements just wont do it anymore."

Hmm, a lot of effects are already available on Linux, for example the wall plugin for Beryl (its exactly like "places"). - Jun 13 2007

Muku for Gnome

"The background of things like properties dialogues and the shutdown dialogue looks wrong. It seems to be using the same background as the panels and so it comes out in ugly stripes. Also the buttons in those dialogues are missing until you mouse over them, when they highlight as blue."

I know this, but I don't know why this happens. :(

"The grey highlights for button widgets are quite large, giving everything a chunky look and spacing tool bars out unnecessarily. Perhaps you could shave a few pixels off them? There's a similar issue with tabs, although not as pronounced."

I made this theme for very small font sizes, I'm using font size 8 in applications (HandelGotDLig 8 looks very good with this theme).

Everything is secular if it is not related to religion. Themes are not related to religion. You have to tell me where gnome-look.org states that religious stuff is appreciated.

This article is about the condition of not being specifically religious. For other usages, see the Secularity (disambiguation) page.

Secularity (adjective form secular) is the state of being separate from organized religion. For instance, walking and bathing may be regarded as examples of secular activities, because there is nothing inherently religious about them. - May 04 2007

Yeah, nudity is indeed alright because there is no message.
I don`t want anybody to "spread there word" out here, no muslims, christians, buddhists or atheists.

What would you think about images which contain messages like "satan rules", "allah is great", "Ganesha owns em all" or "there is no god, atheism is the only way"? - May 04 2007

There is a huge demand for vista-like themes, and themes belong to gnome-look.org.
There is almost no demand for religious stuff, and imo religious stuff doesn`t belong to gnome-look.org. - May 04 2007
