Description:

Unity/Gtk2.0/Gtk3.0/Metacity Theme based on elementary Gtk2.0/Gtk3.0/Metacity. Gtk3.0 has been almost completely rewritten from scratch and modified with unity panel support while retaining the elements that make that theme awesome.

Full credit to elementary team for their inspired design.

0.0.2

Fixed issue with file-chooser sidebar items behaving glitchy

0.0.1

Gnome Shell/Gnome Classic variation included.
Simply extract the folders into .themes and use gnome tweak tool to change to the appropriate theme depending on your desktop.

Requires:

Unico engine
Murrine engine

Known issues:

-Thunderbird toolbar uses selected_fg_color and therefore uses white text. Either all gtk2.0 menus must be light so that selected_fg_color can be dark or thunderbird has white text. I haven\'t found a way to fix it after hours of tweaking.

For gnome3 classic and gnome shell use ElementsGS theme included.

The theme does not work for programs running as root.

In order for root to have access to the theme, you need to place it in /usr/share/themes rather than ~/.themes/

Crashes X on me as well. Had to login to Mate then delete the theme before I could get back in. Please fix.

I'm using LM12, based on Ub11.10, with Gnome 3, Gnome shell.

Awesome theme!
However, in Ubuntu 11.10, Synaptic and Gdebi (gdebi while installing a package) do not conform to the theme.

Hey, I love your theme, the only thing which I would like to change is Desktop icon color, its dark grey right now, how do you change it to white?
Other than that every inch of your theme is perfect.

Hi, Nanabaluku, thank you for a great theme.

I'm on version 2 of this and there is still glitchiness in the file-chooser sidebar.

I've been really enjoying using this theme, but the sidebar issues are an obstacle so I hope you can fix them.

First of all, very nice theme! Congrats!

I'm using Gnome Shell and would like to know how to an obtain "uniform" scrollbars across application like nautilus, synaptic, thunderbird, etc ?

More specifically, how to change nautilus/gnome-terminal/evince scrollbars (GTK applications) from "large rectangles" to "very small ellipses"?

Best regards

Hi, cheers for the interest!

It's not possible to do that at this time. The scrollbars in those apps are hard coded. I have heard of some extensions i.e. for firefox that can change the appearance of the scrollbars but it can't be done at the theme level.

Another very, very minor glitch in the theme seems to be that the battery and wireless indicators on the top right in the screen get a little bit distorted or pixelated when using certain icon themes, such as the default icon theme for Ubuntu.
Other than that great job!

How did you make the frames around the icons in the side panel black?

Report

Hi! Do you mean the nautilus side-panel? If so you can theme it by using the following css:

NautilusWindow .sidebar,
NautilusWindow .sidebar .view {
background-color: @fg_color;
color: @selected_fg_color;
}

Where my fg_color for the theme is dark and selected_fg_color will contrast with the dark colour (ie white).

How do I install this in Oeniric?

Report

Hi! If you've just installed Oneiric you need to create a directory in your home folder called .themes and extract the folders from the .zip to it. Then open software centre and install gnome-tweak-tools. Open gnome-tweak-tools and click on theme to change gtk and window theme to Elements(unity).

Also .themes will be a hidden folder (as any folder with a full stop in front of it is) so to see it when you are extracting the zip, move to your home directory and press ctrl+h
