GTK3 Themes by abhishekzambare 34 comments

I like it, but the buttons are too big and clunky. The worst part is, it causes marking any text to be white, when most backgrounds are white so text becomes invisible! I can't see anything in FIrefox, Thunderbird or any GTK based apps when I mark the text. It's really annoying.
It also doesn't work with some apps like Gnome Discs, at least not when applied in Plasma, see:

https://imgur.com/Lr7BIid

It may be also tied to the fact that I use Manjaro testing, so I have the newest GTK and Plasma packages and the theme is not updated to newest GTK stack. - Oct 15 2020

Plasma Themes by michaldybczak 36 comments

Everything works as expected judging from your screenshot. The only problem is that you have a blur effect turned on. Disable it (desktop effects) and you will get full transparency.

Unfortunately, there is no way to have selective full transparency, so with blur in one place but transparency in other, at least not on a system panel.

If you want to have a fully transparent panel and blur effect on (menus, qt-apps) you need to switch to latte-dock for more advanced setup. Despite the name latte-dock in not just a dock but also a panel and basically the whole re-design of a Plasma desktop space. It gives you an incredible amount of options but it's for advanced users and it's hard to discover everything on its own.
There is also a downside, latte uses a lot of RAM, but that is unavoidable with all the option it has. So if you wan to have light Plasma setup, using a system panel is a way to go and then if you want transparency, use my theme. - Sep 01 2019

No, lack of shadows is hardcoded, so to speak. The reason for this theme is to have no shadows so it won't have them and they won't be possible to turn on. - Mar 23 2019

Plasma Themes by michaldybczak 18 comments

If we are talking about details, it's "macbreeze" - one word. Has Apple patented any words with "mac" in it? What about MacDonalds :)?. Nah, I think we are good. Again, we have a lot of mac-something names in the Linux community for a long time and no one cares about it. If things change, then we can take new steps. No need to be overly sensitive now. - Mar 23 2019

Plasma Themes by michaldybczak 18 comments

This is possible but when you check opendesktop, there are plenty of Mac products and nobody has any problem with it. Apple is usually pursuing others when it matters to them, so for example if it's damaging their public view somehow or is direct competition, etc. In other cases, they just don't bother.
At the moment we are not on their radar so we shouldn't worry too much, at least now and the nearest feature.

I tried it on Thumbleweed in virtualbox and I cannot recreate the issue. It works as intended, although I realized now how strange Manjaro icon looks on Open Suse OS ;) , maybe I introduce more general icon in the feature. Of course, I had to close plasmashell and start it anew to get rid or shadow and panel edge. Anyway, here is the screen (I changed for the brighter wallpaper then one that comes by default):

Plasma Themes by michaldybczak 36 comments

That gray line is not part of the theme, this is some kind of bug.

Did you try killing plasmashell and loading it again? Usually, I find plasmashell in ksysguard and after getting rid of it I hit "alt+space" and type plasmashell, enter. Often a line artifact is visible after applying theme for the first time so after rellogging/rebooting or relaunching plasmashell it fixes itself.

If that doesn't work, I'll try to launch open suse in virtualbox and see if the issue can be replicated there. Do you use Leap of Thumbleweed? - Oct 09 2018

Macbreeze Shadowless

Plasma Themes by michaldybczak 18 comments

Basically, window transparency on Qt-KDE programs is provided by Kvantum theme. It's all in the description.
Some programs, like Konsole have own settings to provide transparency - go to Edit profile, look, enable transparency and blur. Gtk programs won't have window transparency, also some Qt won't have it either, it depends on how they are constructed and if they use a class style (not sure how it is properly named, I'm not a developer) that chosen Kvantum theme is making semi-transparent.
All of it has nothing to do with my desktop theme, but Macbreeze Shadowless simply suit the light, transparent Kvantum theme as shown os screens. - Aug 28 2018

Manjaro Redefined BootSplash

Bootsplash Various by crimsonsuv 1 comment

I was a bit disappointed with this plymouth. It looks cool on preview photos but when it's applied, the resolution or look is bad. I expected to see elegantly blurred background with a sharp, great looking Manjaro logo and additional text. Instead, logo and the text seems to be unsharp itself. In the result, the whole feels like a low res or low quality and not elegant at all. Also, the animation was not done right but since it's been a while I used it, I don't remember the details of the animation. - Apr 05 2018

Don't use version from this site. It doesn't work fully so many options do nothing and that confuses people. Install AUR git version (on Arch/Manjaro) or directly from github. Only then you get full functionality, like on my desktop (with latte-dock, also on a panel):

Alienware 17 R3. Added ssd to it and put Manjaro on it. Windows resides on hdd in case it's needed (key lights, occasional sound unlocking). I also shrunk windows partition to make space for some symlinked home directories.

One thing that I haven't figure out yet is how to make hdmi output work on linux when using bumblebee. Without it I can't use my TV on linux :(. But that's a different story and here is no place for it. Also comment boxes became ridiculously small... ;)

Anyway, you can contact me through my google site I gave above, so we can share some hints about making machine working as well as possible on linux. - Apr 21 2017
It works! That was quick!

Too pity that it shows only for a 1 sec. and is gone... Too quick boot on ssd I guess. I don't even have a chance to see spinning circle around the alien head. Similar issue is with some other plymouths that have delayed and more complex animation: just an image and boom: system splash is there for another 1-2 sec. and the desktop appears. Nevertheless, it's a nice touch.

Thanks! :D - Apr 21 2017
Commands worked well, they set your plymouth, but it couldn't be applied nevertheless, hence parser error.

I saw here some other plymouths with install instructions and they also seem to be debian/ubuntu specific. It's possible that the plymouth must be rewritten for arch system to make it work :(.

Arch in general improved file system structure and cleaned it. Debian is making the same changes but in a very, very slow pace :(.

Maybe you need to download some arch plymouths and see their build to figure out what needs to be changed. I guess it's nothing you can do quickly and I can only hope you have interest and time to play with it and figure it out. Maybe instead of spamming this comment board, will move to another way of communication. I would give you my email, but such comments are not a good place for that (boots will find it and throw more spam to your email adres). Maybe google+ profile will be safer. From there we can use google hangouts or share emails.

Here (hopefully content will not be cut out automatically):

https://plus.google.com/u/0/112902119270556147344

And once this will work, you make proper changes and give instructions on this page. - Apr 21 2017
Sorry, for spamming, but it seems that comment system on this sites automatically cuts brackets and content in it, so that was not my mistake and above it deleted them again (sight)... Here it is again, hopefully with full content:

Small mistake, forgot to add "theme" in the example above, a pity I can't edit comments:

To change a theme and rebuild initrid image at the same time:
sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R theme - Apr 21 2017
Small mistake, forgot to add in the example above, a pity I can't edit comments:

To change a theme and rebuild initrid image at the same time:
sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R - Apr 21 2017
Also, to give you a general overview, that is how setting plymouth works on arch:

Plymouths are located in:

/usr/share/plymouth/themes/

There are some files in /lib/plymouth/ but there are no plymouth specific ones, rather files needed to run plymouth in general.

To list all plymouth themes:
plymouth-set-default-theme -l

To change theme and rebuild initrid image at the same time:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R

That's the whole deal. It works for plymouths I have on my system (arch ones and the manjaro specific one). - Apr 21 2017
Manjaro, which is arch based. I guess debian and arch handle this differently. Since you know more how those things work, maybe you will understand more of:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Plymouth

And then you could put here instructions how to install it on debian and arch systems once we figured it out ;).

I would love to use that plymouth. I played with many and most of them are ugly, basic and badly designed. From the picture above it looks like a really good looking one and frankly the best plymouth I saw so far... and given the fact I use alienware, I would love to make it work, but I don't have enough knowledge to follow it through. I can only give a feedback if you're up to. Thanks :) - Apr 21 2017
sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
sudo: update-alternatives: command not found

What system are you running? - Apr 21 2017
Small correction:
Parser error, couldn't open the file /lib/plymouth/themes/alienware-splash/theme.sc

I did change it with initrams update, I used:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R alienware-splash

Will check your config command.
- Apr 21 2017
Situation progressed:
When rebooting system, it kindly hung on the closing, which allowed me to see the relevant message: missing /lib/plymouth/themes/theme.sc file if I recall correctly.

Looks like system is made to use /usr/share/plymouth/themes/alienware-splash/ while you designed plymouth to look for files in /lib/plymouth/themes/? Just guessing.

Besides, there is no such file in your directory. I guess I can't go any further without your help now. I hope I gave you all the info you need to fix it. It would be great to have alienware plymouth on alienware laptop :D (aside the one on the very begining - before grub). - Apr 21 2017
Unfortunately, plymouth didn't work. I got some "error" and "not found" during boot up, but couldn't read it. Tried to see some journalctl -b but there are too many lines and after few minutes of scrolling, I lost hope I will find it in that jungle. Tried | grep error but no luck. Seems like it didn't list all error messages somehow :( - Apr 21 2017
There was no themes directory there. I created it and copied the unpacked alienware-splash directory, still no luck. System doesn't see it and when trying to apply I get:

/usr/share/plymouth/themes/alienware-splash/alienware-splash.plymouth does not exist

I put the alienware-splash directory in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/alienware-splash/ at the beginning and I left it there. It looks as if it was looking for a specific file there: alienware-splash.plymouth. Yours have only theme.plymouth. I changed it to alienware-splash.plymouth and voila. System sees your plymouth correctly :). Now I hope it will work well after applying, will let you know. - Apr 21 2017
I have alienware laptop so this plymouth seemed perfect. I unpacked the file, moved to /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ and... the system doesn't see it. When using:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme alienware-splash

I got a message that plymouth does not exist. It's also not showed on a plymouth list. Is it outdated or so? Has anyone idea how to fix it? Or am I doing something wrong? - Apr 20 2017
