Description:

Vivacious Colors GTK is a NEW Theme by the RAVEfinity Open Source Design Team for 2016. Just in time for 16.04 LTS And Mint 18! Or Any other Distribution with GTK 3.16 & 3.18! Released in the last few mouths like OpenSUSE, Debian Testing/Sid, Fedora, Arch (w/GTK 3.18 only) etc.

Featuring a clean, vibrant and customizable look in 4 Styles.
In 13 Vivid Colors
Allowing you to make your desktop truly your own!
... Or you can just "be boring" and choose Spring Blue :)

Now in 16.04.3 (April 12th) Pro Window Buttons now included.
And a few other fixes.

(!) This Theme Supports GTK 3.16 & 3.18 Only. (16.04 LTS, Mint 18) It does not support GTK 3.20 yet. (Arch, Fedora 24) To do that we have to re-write everything!... GTK 3.20 is that different! thats hours, days, weeks of work. We are working on it but please understand it's not simple. It's hours and days of our free time.

GnomeShell users will find Vivacious is now fully CSD compliant and ready for GnomeShell and has no quirks like Ambiance & Radiance Flat did on GnomeShell.
And there is new Cinnamon Shell Themes at long last too! And full support for Unity, Xfce, Mate, LXDE. OpenBox etc as well of coerce.

The GTK 3 portion of the theme has been completely re-written from scratch to look and work much better on a wide variety of desktops. While this theme bares some resemblance to the Ambiance & Radiance Flat Colors GTK Theme. It is based on a completely different GTK3 codebase. It should be cleaner, faster and easier to maintain for years to come. Vivacious GTK has many new features and refinements (Compared to Ambiance Flat) they may not be apparent from first glance but onece you start using it you will notice!

Full and tested support for most of the popular GTK desktops Including:
Cinnamon, Gnome Shell, MATE, XFCE, Unity, LXDE, OpenBox & more!

ATTENTION!!! This Theme Only Supports: GTK 3.16 & 3.18! That Means: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu 15.10, Mint 18 LTS, LMDE 3, Debian Testing & Sid, OpenSUSE, Fedora 23. etc.

Great theme!! I really like it. Looks professional and sleek.
I have only a minor problem: in the light version I can see a dark and thin line around the border of the menu bar of every windows. Any idea if this is a problem or if it is the original design? (Looking the pictures the entire theme seems to be border-less).
Thanks for your great work!

Please disregard the information about the problem with the border. After a new installation and reboot now everything is working flawless!
Thanks again for this nice theme.

Hi guys,
I know there is a lot of stuff to do for Gnome 3.20 theme support, is there any improvement and will it be soon available?
BTW great work!

Great work and it's welcome but I think there is way too many variations of the theme included which inundate the theme selector and drown the other ones. May be a light version will be welcome.

I totally understand what you are saying. And I do agree there is a lot. But once you use this theme you will never need those other themes in your theme selector :P Just playing.

We have so much going on that we haven't had the time. It almost happed actually. But then we got hit with needing to add gtk 3.20 support like a ton of bricks :) I hope to do this soon though. What color do you think should be in that version?

I can't select colour for everyone but 4~5 variations only seems reasonable.

In regards to what Armageddon51 said below, how about a group of core colors, like, say, blue, green, orange, brown, and gray, and then a separate package of extra colors, such as the red, purple, yellow, teal, etc., variations?

GTK3.20 is out when can we expect raveinfinity themes for it?

Report

Despite the version number being 3.20. (Vs. 3.18) Some nick name it "GTK 4" it essentially breaks everything from a theme and widget perspective and we have to re-write nearly everything. I am not sure at this point. We will do our best but it is going to be quite a bit of work. We just did a re-write. Ironically But Now we get to do another :) We are continuing to work on and look for the best solution.

Thank you for the support and understanding we are sorry about this. I truly wish it was as simple as 3.18 was to support/update to.
