Hello again,

An idea: could you please update ONLY Ubuntu's Cairo to 1.12.2-1ubuntu1 from Quantal and see if the issue you'd mentioned is fixed after logging in and out? If upgrading of Cairo doesn't depend on many other packages, it will be easily reversible.

I think your guess is right, although the theme doesn't depend on any gtk3-engines-* but on gnome-themes-standard, which may be a dependency of one of those packages.

I've uploaded the source for such cases. A "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" is enough for creating a deb package, which will automatically install all dependencies. - Aug 18 2012

Thanks for the reply. My system is also sid+testing with Gnome-Shell. So, Debian has no problem with the theme :)

As only one user has reported a problem, I conclude that there's no general issue with the bg transparency I've given to treeviews (for the "silver" effect). - Aug 18 2012

Good. Now we know the graphics driver isn't the culprit.

> it could be a bug in the gnome gtk engine your theme use

You mean Adwaita. It belongs to gnome-themes-standard. Mine is 3.4.2 and works OK. If yours has this version too, it's not the culprit either.

There remains Cairo. I do NOT recommend you upgrade to Cairo 1.2.12 at all. Just wait until it comes into Ubuntu. - Aug 18 2012

> perhaps you are using code that...
Only CSS is used for a theme.

I have a suggestion. Download the source, open a terminal in GnomishGray/gtk-3.0 and issue the command:

glib-compile-resources gtk

Then replace the file gtk.gresource of the theme with the created one.

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 95 comments

GnomishGray is different from most other themes in that it uses transparency for GTK3 treeview (file list, as you called it).

I checked with a friend and he didn't have this issue either. I even tried GnomishGray on VirtualBox without problem.

The installation folder doesn't matter, of course.

The problem you have is most probably related to how your system handles background transparency. This, in turn, depends on your graphics driver and also, to some lesser extent, on the Cairo version installed on your system.

I checked the Precise repository and found that the versions of Cairo and nVidia are old. But I wonder why no other Ubuntu user has reported such an issue yet.

Sorry that I couldn't be of more help :( I'll tell you if another user has this issue too. - Aug 15 2012

First, thanks for your comment.

I think your screenshot shows Gnome Archive Manager (file-roller). This is mine:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7793460/file-roller.png

As you see, everything is OK. Please answer the following questions:

(1) Did you change your theme to GnomishGray from a dark theme. If yes, please log out and log in again. Does the same thing happen after that?

(2) Do you use Gnome?

(3) Have you installed the theme correctly (in /usr/share/themes/)? - Aug 14 2012

Nice dark theme! I like its plastic like texture in the screenshots people made with it.

I voted up but don't understand why some people vote down such a beautiful theme without leaving a reasonable comment or reporting a bug.

BTW, your screenshot doesn't show nice aspects of the theme. I recommend you change it. - Aug 02 2012

Hi,

There are only two values, namely -GtkWindow-resize-grip-width and -GtkWindow-resize-grip-height. The default value (used in this theme) is 16 for both. If you set them to zero, the resize grip will disappear. - Jul 30 2012

Hello!

The date of the latest version is May 5th. Just download the theme (NOT its source) from here, extract the archive, and put the extracted folder 'GnomishBeige' in '/usr/share/themes/' (remove any previously installed folder 'GnomishBeige' from there first). You might need log out and log in after that.

I usually update this theme when a later version of Gnome comes out or when an issue is reported. - Jul 23 2012

Hi,

I think you misunderstood that post. They say that you should change those (default) light colors to some dark ones of your choice. Would you please test that? If the effect is positive, I'll add it to README. It would be a great help because I can't test Ubuntu Software Center in Debian (it crashes instantly). - Jul 02 2012

You surely know that your screenshot isn't related to the GnomishGray shell theme. However, the font size is determined in the file gnome-shell.css belonging to the theme. Search for ".overview-icon", and "font-size". - May 13 2012

These blocks:

NautilusPlacesSidebar .cell:selected, NautilusPlacesSidebar *.cell:selected {}

Yes, you should open the terminal inside the folder "gtk-3.0" in the source folder. - May 13 2012
GnomishGray

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 95 comments

First download the source.

The horizontal and vertical progress bars are SVG images with the names of prgrss.svg and prgrssv.svg. You could open them with Inkscape and change their colors as you wish.

For menu items, find the following block in gtk-widgets.css:

.menuitem:hover,
.menu .menuitem:hover {
....
}

The color and gradient are defined as background-image.

After making your changes, compile the theme as I explained above and replace "gtk.gresource" in the installation folder. You should restart apps to see their new look. - May 13 2012

Just a correction: apparently the name "gtk" for that file is important. - May 13 2012
GnomishGray

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 95 comments

Since GTK-3.4, there's a possibility to make a binary file that includes all assets and CSS files. It seems that in this way, not only the theme is more compact but also it's loaded more easily.

The source includes a file named "gtk" (the name isn't important) that can be compiled with this command to create "gtk.gresource" as the core file of the theme: glib-compile-resources gtk

On the other hand, I update the theme in dA even when the changes I make are small but I update the source only when there are considerable changes. - May 13 2012

Now I see what problem you were talking about. The Synaptic's quick search issue is fixed automatically because I used the Pixmap engine for GTK2 entries. I hope all GTK2 apps will be ported to GTK3 soon and we'll get rid of such issues. - May 10 2012

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 179 comments

There may be two resons for readabality problems in apps: a bug in a theme, or a problem with the app. The developers of some apps presuppose a dark color on a light bg. This is a deficiency in design. I call such apps "dark haters".

Synaptic isn't a dark hater. You could change its color scheme in its Preferences. I don't know about software center (I don't have Ubuntu) but Meld is another PyGTK dark hater. Usually there are workarounds. - May 10 2012

If GTK+ is upgraded to v3.4 in your distro, the theme won't work in its current form. However, I'll update it as soon as gnome-shell-3.4 comes into Debian. In fact, I'll always update this theme as soon as I can. - May 01 2012

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 179 comments

Good to hear that!

If the GTK3 theme works for you, you sould still have GTK-3.2. Updating it to GTK-3.4 will break the theme in its current form. I've made a version for GTK-3.4 but I have to wait until gnome-shell-3.4 comes into Debian. - Apr 15 2012

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 179 comments

You want Pidgin's chat window to be white-on-black? Open "gtkrc" (in the folder gtk-2.0), find style "view" and comment out its two lines (put a # before each of them). They should be lines 387-388. Then if you restart Pidgin, its chat windows will have a dark bg.

However, that change will affect all GTK-2.0 text views. So, for example, if you encounter readability issues in Firefox, revert the change. Unfortunately, some apps are dark-haters.

BTW, I'll update the theme for Gnome-3.4 soon and its GTK+2.0 part will be more attractive. - Apr 15 2012

Thank you, Sadi, for your suggestions.

You're right; it would be good if the background of Chromium's tab bar could be changed without affecting other aspects of the (GTK2) theme. I'll see that through.

I enjoyed Ubuntu 4 years ago and I respect it but, being a Debian user, I couldn't make or test a Unity theme, unfortunately.

The icon theme is nouveGnome; I just changed the color of its folder icons to make them more compatible with this theme. - Mar 26 2012

Oh, now I see what you say :) I intentionally removed that in my shell theme as I wanted it to look more serious. You see, tastes are so different ;) Restoring that "bubble" shape isn't straightforward but you could use the default shell theme with GnomishDark's window and GTK+ themes through "Advanced Settings"; they're compatible enough. - Mar 20 2012

Showing bubbles at mouse-over is beyond what a theme can do and is related to the app itself. A theme can change only the color and gradient of some widgets when they go under the mouse cursor or are clicked. - Mar 20 2012

Inside your .mozilla/firefox folder there's another folder, whose name is different for different users and because of that, I used "..." for its name in the above explanation.
