GnomishGray by tsujan GnomishGray by tsujan
GnomishGray is a silver gray theme for GTK3. It also contains a matching 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)
Metacity >= 2.34 (for GTK2)

*** Important Notes ***

(1) Ubuntu users should disable "overlay-scrollbar" before using this theme, otherwise they might see blackened widget areas (a bug in overlay-scrollbar with a won't-fix tag). See help.ubuntu.com/12.10/ubuntu-h…

(2) Debian users may have to patch Cairo with 'server_side_gradients.patch' (bug #616308), which is included in other distros by default.


Recent changes:

-----------
Added a matching Unity theme for Ubuntu Trusty.

Apr 18 2014

Removed the Adwaita dependency.

it doesn't seem to work, only the window colors but with the original design
i think it's a dependency problem, too bad my computer isn't relied to the internet to install them
thanks though  ;)

It just depends on GTK3 >= 3.10 and gtk2-engines-murrine. It could be helpful if you show me a screenshot.

it has gtk 3.1, so i think it's gtk2-murine, and sorry i can't bring a screenshot, i'm not on my computer
also note that i'm using kali linux (a penetration testing distribution based on debian7 with a very basic look and  a lot of removed packages)

Sorry that it doesn't work for you! Unfortunately Gtk3 isn't backward compatible, so a theme for gtk3 >= 3.8 won't work with 3.1. I have Debian Testing and tested the theme with Ubuntu Trusty too.

Thank you very much! Sadly, GTK3 devs constantly break their API and ruin the themes with every new version. That's the reason I didn't update the themes for v3.10.

Maybe you should consider KDE instead of gnome? :-) I'm consider very much going KDE for good, just had to try out 14.04 Ubuntu, But I see with every release of Ubuntu it's just getting worse and worse. so I'm really thinking KDE from now on

I'm a KDE user since 2012 ;) Months ago, I discovered Enlightenment too. It's like my second house now.

I've reduced the dependencies of these themes to GTK+. As far as GTK+ isn't limited to Gnome, I'll continue updating them.

For KDE, see tsujan.deviantart.com/art/QKDa… , tsujan.deviantart.com/art/QKGr… and  tsujan.deviantart.com/art/nouv…

So, this time, the API changes shouldn't be big. I'll check that as soon as a usable version of Gnome-3.10 comes to Debian.

Ubuntu remix gnome 3.6. In evolution when you mouse over a task or a memo the popup description is blackened and no text is visible.

tsujan Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
Thank you for reporting that problem. Here, with Gnome 3.6.2, Evolution 3.6.3 and GTK+-3.6.4, there isn't such an issue: the popups are dark but the texts are white and visible.

The reason you see such problems is that you use Remix and Gnome lacks backward compatibility. It's a bad habit of the Gnome developers that they usually break many things, which used to work with a previous version. I can do nothing except waiting for the next stable version of Gnome and changing the theme according to the new API.

Thanks for looking into this. I have used different versions of Gnome but the more pure versions, i.e.: Fedora, have more issues than the Remix version. Fedora crashes the gnome shell constantly when extensions are in use. That said, Remix appears has been the most bug free version of Gnome 3.6 that I have found thus far. Any other recommendations are welcome.

Sorry, I mistook Remix with an unstable version of Ubuntu; I thought it uses Ubuntu Raring repository.
Now, what are the GTK+ and Evolution versions you use? The main download link on this page is for GTK+-3.6.4 (and Evolution 3.6.3 -- the latest for Gnome 3.6). If you have GTK+ 3.6.0, please download the theme from the link in the Note (1) above.

I am using GTK 3.6 and Evolution 3.6.2. However, I thought that I had installed the GTK 3.6 version but to make sure I reinstalled. Still have the same issue. I did fix it though. In the settings.ini file you need to change ntooltip_bg_color from 000000 to #A9A9A9. That changes the background to gray and makes the text visible.
Thanks for you assistance.

tsujan Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
That could be a workaround, although tootips are intended to be white on black, as they're here. Since you see that issue only in Evolution and just in one of its components, it should be related to an Ubuntu patch. I compared the Ubuntu patches for Evolution with those of other distros and found them to be very different.

Perfekt. I have been using "Gnomish Dark" with "nouveGnomeGray" icons for year; this one is the fist clear them I really am attraced to!

Thanks a lot! GnomishGray can be seen as the light counterpart of GnomishDark, for those who prefer light themes.

Can you please make Gnomishlight/dark Grey/Stone/Black, whatever darkish colour exists; I never had a theme which adapted that perfectly to my dozens of different linux apps. It's incredible !

tsujan Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
Sorry about my previous reply; I thought you meant the icons.

I migrated to KDE, so I won't make another GTK+ theme. However, I'll maintain GnomishDark, GnomishGray and GnomishBeige. Now I'm working on KDE ports of the nouveGnome icon sets.

Oh, another question, if Im allowed: Im craving for nouve black icons (as available for KDE will be released for Gnome. Is this realistic, or do I have to dream on ;)?

I have already made and will complete nouveKDEGray ([link]) for KDE.

As for making a black theme out of nouveGnomeray or nouveKDEGray, there has been an interesting idea from a Gnome user. So, I may make a black icon set someday (no promise because I'm quite busy now).

nosfertete1 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014
Im still hoping, waiting, I set gnomishgray as my default theme, it is the most smoothly running and best compiled one I ever had. I tried to change the themerc. in gnomishdark to black, but failed because of absolute incompetence from my side and the many beautiful gradients and widgets :D

tsujan Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013
You could colorize all the icons with ImageMagick. See here [link]

Or, as the author of that nice utility told me, you could save this bash script to a file in the top level of the extracted icons folder, make it executable and run it. Just change the relevent numbers:

#!/bin/bash

#Red = 0,61,61
#blue = 61,61,0
#green = 61,0,61
#yellow = 0,0,100

find -iname "*.png" -o -iname "*.svg"| while read file
do
if [ ! -L "$file" ];then
echo Converting "$file" ...
convert "$file" -colorize 61,0,61 "$file"
fi
done

Although I left Gnome for KDE, I still have Gnome on one of my 2 Debian installations and will use it for developing these themes. Updates will come, although not as often as before.

I hope so, although I can completely understand you, when even changing a gtk theme in xfce 4.10 nowadays can break your system :-(. But I have a KDE install too, meanwhile, as 4.10 is way better and faster than 4.8. So I can still follow your great work

I'll update GnomishGray as soon as the new GTK+ comes to Debian Unstable.

I've made QKDark ([link]) for KDE and will update it soon. I have a plan to make a gray version too.

Do you have Quantal Beta? If yes, I could give you a preliminary version for Gnome 3.6 through a note at dA. I need Ubuntu testers. Of course, you should first install gnome-shell and all its requirements on your Ubuntu if you want to test it.

Gnome Shell 3.4.1
GTK+3.4.2

Not the menu bar across all windows, but across the screen. Based on your screenshot, it's the menu with the 'Activities' menu on the left, time in the middle, and status on the right.

Aha! You use Unity and you mean its panel. This theme doesn't have any relation to Unity. It's for GTK and Gnome-Shell. Unity is a window manager made by Canonical; Gnome-Shell is the standard user interface of Gnome3.

Brilliant. Beautiful. Looked through MANY, but this theme was THE one! Unfortunately, my my top menu bar goes completely black. Do you know how I can fix this? I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 2D Unity. Thx.

Thank you for your comment.

What do you mean by "top menu bar"? You mean menubars of all windows or the top panel?

And do you have gnome-3.4? The theme doesn't work with 3.5 or 3.6 yet but I'll update it soon, as I've told other users too.
