Bugs i noticed:


1) Right Click on folder *hides* the folder name.
2) multiple files/folders selection using mouse drag creates a plain white rectangle => all are hidden beneath.
3) firefox and thunderbird tab=> rendering with small line(sometimes dotted) on tab header(down)

Hey lassekongo83,
first I must thank you for your work, it's simply amazing!

I'am running Archlinux with Gnome 3.4 and your new Zukitwo release and there are two bugs ive found.

1. Nautilus
When you open multiple tabs the close buttons look strange.
see http://i43.tinypic.com/28te33p.png

2. Gnome contacts
In the application contacts are buttons directly below the windowbar. These buttons are dark on a dark background, so they can be easily overseen.
see http://i39.tinypic.com/zvao08.png


So please keep up the good work.

Have a nice day!
Alex

I really love this theme and would really be happy about an update for the latest Gnome version 3.4, now as it has been released as final and stable. I get white fonts and some other strange colors when using one of the Zukitwo GTK+3 themes on Ubuntu 12.04. Could you fix that? Thanks for your hard work!

An update is on its way, but I need to wait for Gnome 3.4 to be added to ArchLinux's stable Extra repo before I update. I don't use testing/unstable repos.

Awesome! I think this should be still on time for the Ubuntu 12.04 release (April 26th). Thanks in advance!

Gnome 3.4 is now in extra. I hope you will find the time to update the theme, because it's the best theme I've ever seen.
Looking forward & Rgds

Hello!

I've installed this nice GTK3-GTK2 theme and it is great. I like it.

But there are few bugs with some applets: some XFCE applets (GTK2) appears so white, and one of them is unusable, cause it appears as a white block instead showing its colors.

You could see the bugs here:

If you could help me to solve them, it will be nice!

Thank you!

I'm trying to use gnome-tweak-tool 3.2.0, but it doesn't apply any kind of gtk3 theme. Do gnome-tweak-tool really works? or should we edit configuration files directly, and use commands from terminal, and reboot every time we want to change a gtk3 theme?

Is the difference in size of combobox in GTK2 and GTK3 themes intentional? Is there any way to decrease size of comboboxes in GTK3 theme?

Is there any chance there can be a port of this theme to Cinnamon? Cinnamon is a fork of gnome 3. I don't think it would be too hard.

Here is an example of a forked theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Eleganse+and+dark-glass+Cinnamon+themes?content=147807

In Xfce if I set my panel size to lower than 24 my applets will look unconveniently small: http://gyazo.com/dc9f677ea38e204cf4bd47e290b76c1d.png (size 23)

This doesn't happen with other themes so I was wondering if there is a value I should change in order to fix this. Thanks.

The panel in XFCE resizes the icons based on the xthickness and ythickness set to the panel in the panel.rc file. Try changing those values to 0.

Other panels with proper design resizes the icons based on the height of the panel and uses the x and ythickness as a padding between items.

Changing the xthickness to 3 fixed the issue, thank you for your help. However the window buttons handle now looks weird but I guess I can wihout it.

On Zukitwo-Resonance, at least, the track info popup (which uses GTK+2) shows white text over light grey background, making it really difficult to read.

I've just upgraded Thunderbird to 8.0 and it seems to have turned ugly in the Zukitwo Dark theme. For some reason (probably the Mozilla guys being "cool" and altering the styling of their widgets) the buttons as well as the menu bar are now dark, but the buttons are still light when I hover over them. I like the dark title bar and menu bar, but I don't like dark button bars.

Is there anything that can be done about this, or have Mozilla made a change that screwed something up in an unfixable way?

Thanks.

Unfixable. This bug have to be reported to those who are responsible for the gtk integration of Thunderbird.

Okay, thanks, I guess I'll live with it for now then. Hopefully the Thunderbird guys can fix it soon.

I really like this gtk theme, very clean.
Just one thing could be better :
The "modal" windows. The top border does not integrate very well.
Could there be a solution ?

Hi there,

Thanks for all your work - I've been using your themes since Zuki, then I switched to Droid, and then your masterpiece: Simpleton! :-)

Anyway, I've noticed the titlebar is bigger in later releases of Zukitwo - I still have the initial release on my hard-drive and copy it over to use it instead of the later metacity-1. Is this deliberate? I only ask as on my 17" laptop the earlier metacity looks much better.

And when are you going to do a Simpleton GTK3/Shell theme!

Love your work, keep it up!

I did increase the vertical padding on the titlebar a couple of months ago. Though I'm not sure why I did it, maybe because I tried to adjust the button placement.

Try changing this value to a lower one (like 9 or 8) in the metacity-theme-3.xml file: distance name="title_vertical_pad" value="11"

As for Simpleton. My next metacity theme I'm working on will be borderless and pretty similar... except for the buttons. Zukitwo GTK2/GTK3 and the Nord shell theme can work as a replacement for the widgets and stuff. ;)

If not Zukitwo, I would use KDE. Thank you! It is excellent, please don't change it. Only bugfixes and updating to new gtk+ versions, PLEASE!
