Victory (Strikes Again) - Small Victory
GTK2 Themes
Description:

While working on the Victory theme, a lot of people requested both a dark panel version, and a version that was more compact. This is a test of both of those ideas. It may be rough, and I'm not sure if I'll continue working on this one.

So let me know if it's something I should give more attention to. If anyone has any feedback, ideas, or anything, that would be great! Thanks!

This theme suggests the Moblin icon set. In Ubuntu it's in the repositories.

---------------------------------------

Thanks again everyone. Any ideas, requests, fannage, voting, or feedback - positive or negative - it's all very appreciated.

Hi Darin,

I want to get the window border in the 3rd picture, but there is only one windew border in the theme.

Can you let me know how to select the window border shown in the 3rd picture? (the flat, matte one)

Thanks.

Really nice theme, I've set it in all my computers, and it works like a charm in my notebook.
The only problem is I like to use it also on my desktop pc, and the font is to small. My screen is in 1440x900 resolution, and the fonts look small and thin. A variant with a bigger (not large) font would be great.

Great Work!

I'm having the same problem that chmurlik above is having. For example, on my gnome-panel I have a CPU Frequency Monitor applet that is purely text. It usually reads something like: "1.60GHz". When I apply your theme this becomes really dark and difficult to see. This is because its mirroring the Text color from the windows text option under Theme>Customize>Colors. Heres the bigger problem, If I were the make the color pure black I wouldn't be able to see my Applet at all. If I make it pure white then all the text on my open windows becomes too white to see. Its difficult to find a medium. Plus I'd rather the applet color be able to be as white as everything else on my panel. On the original Victory theme I tried to customize the panel as well to make it dark with light text and had the same problem, except on that theme ALL the text and even the icons mirrored the the "windows text color option" under theme>customize>colors.

Other than this its a great theme. But I do think this is worth fixing or finding a quick solution to.

Could you name the Icon Theme in the first picture?

These are the moblin icons.

If you use Ubuntu, they're in the repositories (I'm not sure if they're in other distros repos) - just search for moblin-icon-theme in Synaptic.

If not, try this:

It doesn't seem as up to date, but it is nice.

For me it's too small and text on nautilus-panel is very illegible (dark font on dark background?). So for now I prefer orginal victory theme but idea with this compact view is very good. Keep working :).

Hey, thanks a lot, I appreciate it. If you don't mind my asking, what is your screen resolution?

I might be misunderstanding when you say nautilus-panel - are you talking about the nautilus sidebar?

Anyway, thanks again.

My resolution is 1280x800 (15,6 inches screen) and I mean gnome-panel with widgets like 'main menu' or 'notification area'. Sorry for misunderstanding.

btw, where did you get the wall paper? I saw it on DA, but it's burgundy, not red-ish.

and on your screenshots, those 3 little boxes on the top right of the file browser, that changes the display mode...mine doesn't show up like that. it's a drop down menu where i can select "icon view, list view, compact view".

Yeah, it's that same one off DeviantArt. Hurrah Ubuntu by Pr09studio for anyone else interested:

http://pr09studio.deviantart.com/art/Hurrah-Ubuntu-162917462

In the ZIP file is a source.xcf (Thanks to pr09studio and anyone else who include this with their wallpapers!!).

Open that with Gimp, and under the layers, show (click the eyeballs) the first two, then hide all the rest. Save that as a PNG.

If you set it as your Wallpaper in the Appearance Preferences, you can pick whatever colors you want since it's transparent.

I wish a lot of Wallpapers were like this. I posted about it on UbuntuBrainstorm, but it never really went anywhere.

Anyway, let me know if you need any help or anything.

Oh yeah, sorry, I forgot all about those boxes. I'm not using Nautilus Elementary right now, but I think it was under Edit > Preferences > Tweaks.

Or something like that. You should be able to change whether it's dropdown/compact, a box, or whatever. After you make the changes you'll just have to run "killall nautilus" in a terminal, or through the run dialog... or just log out and back in.
