I find transparent menus somewhat less usable. Especially when there's no alpha-blur available in mutter/clutter. I just want to see the menu items and not some application with text under the menu.

As for the blue color, I'm hoping it's a step for a more color neutral look. It may change, not decided yet.

This is the same question I asked above. Please could you make a version like before, with transparent menus? This was my preferred gnome-shell theme until last week, but I keep using your gtk theme :)

While I do appreciate your position regarding menu background in, I think that shell notifications background should be at least a bit transparent (alpha around 0.9).

Reasoning is that notifications are quite often irrelevant but Gnome Shell displays them with long timeout (around 4 secs).

First I'd like to thank you for the theme, it's very well done. I'd like to ask though if it would be possible to use relative-font sizes. I noticed the gnome-shell theme uses pt sizes (e.g.

stage {
font-family: Ubuntu, Droid Sans, Trebuchet MS, Liberation Sans, sans-serif;
font-size: 9pt; /* The default font size. */

The ability to use relative-font sizes would make the theme more adaptable for other resolutions and DPIs. To convert pt to em proportionally with the current sizes can be done:

sed -i 's/font-size: 9pt;/font-size: 1em;/g' gnome-shell.css && \
sed -i 's/font-size: 8pt;/font-size: .89em;/g' gnome-shell.css && \
sed -i 's/font-size: 7.5pt;/font-size: .83em;/g' gnome-shell.css

I'm discovering I'm liking the fonts sizes a little bigger:

sudo sed -i 's/font-size: 9pt;/font-size: 1.05em;/g' /usr/share/themes/Zukitwo-Shell/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css && \
sudo sed -i 's/font-size: 8pt;/font-size: .935em;/g' /usr/share/themes/Zukitwo-Shell/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css && \
sudo sed -i 's/font-size: 7.5pt;/font-size: .872em;/g' /usr/share/themes/Zukitwo-Shell/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css

I've been thinking about this, but I do have some doubts.

Those sizes you suggested aren't the same size as the current for me, they're bigger in fact. I have to change the sizes to 0.9em, 0.85em and 0.8em to get the same sizes. So if I do this adapted to my screen I may mess up the fonts for others.

Is the Text scaling factor adjusted to a value lesser than 1.0? This gets adjusted at times by distributions. This setting can be found in GNOME Tweak Tool on the Fonts section for local setting.

This is my preferred theme. Now, that I upgraded to Fedora 17, the Gnome Shell menues are opaque and uglies... is this a bug or a feature? I loved the transparent menues, please tell me that this is a bug!

Unfortunately, this is not a bug. I'm the same as you, I preferred the transparent menus, but the grey opaque ones are ok for me.

Some panel plugins on XFCE desktop looks like bad.

As you can see in the next screenshot, the "cpu load" aplet (on top panel) has 2 ugly grey borders instead taking the background panel color.

The "disk free space" applet (bottom right) just does not show the barrs, so it is unusable.

I have notice that the Gilouche theme show they fine. So I think it is a Zukitwo bug.

What kind of widgets are these?
how can I give them the right styles?

Thank you for your nice work! ;)

I have solved the top panel applet bug adding the line

bg[NORMAL] = @menu_color

To style "theme-panel" on panel.rc file.

BEFORE: http://www.pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=32682
AFTER: http://www.pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=32749

I need to know what kind of widget is the "free disk space" to try to change the appearance.

Can someone help me?

Hi, could it be possible to comment out the „button layout“ line in the XFWM themerc? This would be much less annoying if you use a custom window button layout.

This theme is designed to be used with a custom bg color or image in your GTK2 panels.

It's white to fix a bug when a custom transparent background image is used. (Like the included panelbg.png for example.)

Thanks for the quick update!

One suggestion:

Would you like to consider implementing a slightly darker background for the inactive extra pane in Nautilus?

This is a fantastic theme. I've even started using it in place of my own theme Flow since I am probably never going to update it for GTK3. ^.^;;

That said, there's one little niggling detail that's bothering me; the ythickness of popup menus is inconsistent between GTK2 and GTK3. GTK3 has no ythickness; and GTK2 appears to have about 3. Please make this consistent? The rest of the theme's consistency is absolutely *stelllar.*

Replace the ".icon-grid" class within "gnome-shell.css" with the following class if your applications tab is empty.

Quote:

.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 118px;
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 118px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 118px;
}

By the way. The GS team should ask you if they can make this the default GS theme. The original big buttons on the top right from the default theme are horrible.
