GnomishDark by tsujan GnomishDark by tsujan
GnomishDark is a clean dark theme for GTK3. It also contains a GTK2 theme, that depends on the latest Murrine and Pixmap engines.

*** Current Dependencies ***

GTK3 = 3.12.X (works with 3.10 too)
gtk2-engines-murrine >= 0.98.1.1 (for GTK2)
gtk2-engines-pixbuf >= 2.24.10 (for GTK2)
Metacity >= 2.34 (for GTK2)

*** Notes ***

1) Ubuntu users could disable "overlay-scrollbar" if they want to have the original scrollbars of the theme. See help.ubuntu.com/12.10/ubuntu-h…

2) Don't forget to take a look at the file "README" in the theme folder. It contains useful tips for LibreOffice, Firefox, Epiphany, etc.

3) Light monochromic icons go well with this theme. I've made the gray version of nouveGnome tsujan.deviantart.com/art/nouv… for it.

Recent changes:

Mar 4 2014
-----------
Added a matching Unity theme for Ubuntu Trusty.

Apr 14 2014
-----------
Goodbye Adwaita!
Updated for GTK+-3.12 (still works with 3.10).

May 9 2014
-----------
Added support for Gnome's client side decorations.

For the icons see tsujan.deviantart.com/art/nouv…

BTW, I haven't updated GnomishDark for the latest GTK, so it may not work well. See the explanation inside the archive.

Love the theme.
I've noticed that the May 9 version turns text on tooltips in Chrome white, while leaving their background yellow, making them unreadable.
Unfortunately Chrome themes don't seem to touch the tooltip colours =(

I thought I could fix it in the theme but it's a known Chromium bug: code.google.com/p/chromium/iss… Fortunately it's fixed in the latest version of Chromium.

Yes, that happens with the recent versions of Chromium. I'll try to fix it soon.

If you put GnomishDark's folder in /user/share/themes, its Unity theme will be used alongside its GTK+ theme after changing dconf-editor > org > gnome > desktop > interface > gtk-theme to GnomishDark.

Thanks a million tsujan for this beautiful Gnome Theme. I have been using this theme for a long time. I use it on my Arch-Gnome. Great artwork, Keep it up. Clap Clap

I hope and encourage you to release fixes for gnome 3.10 soon.
(Yesterday I updated to Gnome 3.10 and the shell-theme in particular is not behaving as it should).

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

As I (and also many people, who make Gnome3 themes or create Gnome3 extensions) have pointed out elsewhere, the Gnome devs have a bad habit of breaking themes with every new release, as if they don't want any other theme for Gnome3. Their disrespect for users and also for developers wasn't my only reason to leave Gnome for KDE in 2012. However, I still have my Gnome-based Debian and will update GnomishDark as soon as a stable version of Gnome-3.10 comes to Debian.

However, that works so very well with OpenBox. It was just necessary to make a home-made OB theme. ;) (I can share it if you want, that can be useful)

I don't use Gnome3, never tested moreover.

I appreciate your offer but I prefer not to extend my GTK+ themes and might even remove their Cinnamon part. Since the appearance of Gnome-3.6 , I migrated to KDE and, although I'll maintain and update my GTK+ works, my focus is on KDE now.

Is there any feedback on using gnomishdark on Linux Mint w/ MATE desktop ?
Reply
:icontsujan:
tsujan Featured By Owner May 21, 2013
If you mean if I've received feeadbacks from Linux Mint users, I'm not sure. But there have been comments from Ubuntu users and My own distro is Debian. So, there should be no problem in Mint.

BTW, GnomishDark is still for Gnome-3.6 and NOT 3.8. I've modified it for 3.8 but will upload it only after Gnome-3.8 comes in Debian Unstable (for more testing).

I'm using linux Mint/MATE Q 17

The only glitch I have run into is facebook [COMMENT] boxes using firefox browser  - white text on white background  :(    The [PEOPLE SEARCH] input field is normal dark text on white background.  

[SOLVED]  Installed Firefox add-on F.B. PURITY and changed the text color to a dark blue

No such problem with the chromium browser.

Anybody have a lead/hint on the fix for this ?  

Thanks-In-Advance :)

Have you done what is explained about Firefox in README?

BTW, I have no intention to update GnomishDark for GTK-3.14. Changes in GTK3 are so illogical and whimsical that I find no reason to follow them anymore. So, the later versions of GTK3 will break GnomishDark soon and you might have to return to the default theme. Its GTK2 part will work though.

The only GTK3-GTK2 theme that I'll continue to update is E17gtk ( gnome-look.org/content/show.ph… ) because of its use under Enlightenment.

Hello Tsujan, your themes are very amazing. About dependencies I have to ask if all of them must be covered, or at least one or more. How to install this theme on lubuntu? Gnome 3.6 is stricly necesary? thanks. Morris.

Hello,

With all the dependencies, the theme should be OK as in the screenshot. However, you could try it without gnome-shell and in Unity, for example, and tell me if it's OK or not.

I love both the GnomishGray and GnomishDark themes. Great job. I am using them on Gnome3 in Ubuntu 12.04. Unfortunately, the Metacity themes don't seem to work with Mutter (appears to be version 3.5.x). When I select them in the tweak tool, it appears to do nothing. Would love to get the full theme in all of its glory. Anything ideas for fixes?

Hi,

The theme is for v3.4 for now and shouldn't work with v3.5. I'll update it for v3.6 as soon as it comes into Debian experimental.

BTW, two Ubuntu users have reported that with GnomishGray (and NOT with GnomishDark), treeviews -- save-as or open-file dialogs, for example -- are black in Ubuntu. Do you see such a thing too? I mean with Gnome components v3.4.

:iconmoodebony:
moodebony Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Thanks for the reply, and apologies for the duplicate post.

I was unable to reproduce the black dialogs in 3.5. However, the background behind the text on most of the buttons and menu items are a flat light/dark gray rectangle instead of a matching gradient. I look forward to seeing version compatible with 3.5/3.6.
Reply
:icontsujan:
tsujan Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Oh, thanks! It's good news that you see no black dialogs.

The issues you see with v3.5 are because GTK+-3.6 will have more theme variables, which don't exist in v3.4. Please wait until the stable v3.6 comes out. It might take a little more time for it to appear in Debian than in Ubuntu.

I love the GnomishGray and GnomishDark themes. Great job putting them together. I use gnome3 on ubuntu 12.04. The Metacity theme does not seem to work with Mutter (appears to be version 3.5). Trying to switch to it in the gnome tweak tool appears to have the effect of doing nothing (i.e. remains as the last window theme). Any ideas or possible fixes?

please read my answer above! I addition to it, the "Gnomish" themes are for the standard Gnome+Gnome-Shell, not for Unity.

Oh, yes. Why not? LXDE is GTK based and the theme is for both GTK2 and GTK3. However, some icons may have different names in LXDE.

Thanks for this amazing theme! I'm using it right now but I cant do that firefox thing cause i didnt understand pretty well... I created that personal folder inside .mozilla folder because there wast one with my name created but still I cant read what I wrote on Google and in this post, for example...Could you give me some some instructions on how to do it? Thank you so much.

tsujan Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012
There's a folder .mozilla/firefox in your Home. Inside it, there should be a settings folder, whose name is different for different users. Mine is named "uzu33dvc.default". The folder "chrome" should be inside this one (create it if it isn't) and you should put the file "userContent.css" into "chrome". For example, MY "userContent.css" is in ~/.mozilla/firefox/uzu33dvc.default/chrome

So, you don't have to create any "personal folder". At most, you create "chrome" inside your Mozilla settings folder to put "userContent.css" into it.

Thank you so much again. It's was easy with this explication. Now I'm using your theme both in Gnome and Unity, even your icon theme NouveGnomeGray doesn’t have, for example, the Workspace Switcher and Ubuntu Software Center for Unity but it dos for gnome, but I know it's a matter of time till you get it finished. So, thank you so much for being patient with this little issue. :)

How could you enable shadow for dropdown menus?
Reply
:icontsujan:
tsujan Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012
If you mean the dropdown menus of Gnome-Shell, their shadow is defined as box-shadow in the block ".popup-menu-boxpointer" of the file "gnome-shell.css".

If you mean the shadows of GTK menus, they can't be set in the theme but are defined in the source of mutter.

1) yes, i've change on preference the link color.
but
2) the link color in the email address field remains unchanged
3) the color of email composition button remain unchangedIt

The better way is that i send to you some screenshot ;-)


"~tsujan: remains the text field of the email preview and buttons of the email composition window."
this is solved: just changing the background color in preference/colors from "auto" to white.

As for ftp, see this example: [link] You could change the dark blue color in Preferences > Apearance > Colors > Unvisited Links. Choose light blue, for example.

It remains the text field of the email preview and buttons of the email composition window.
