  • for Clearlooks-Phénix v2: packages gtk2-engines (if GTK2 applications are used), gnome-themes-standard and gtk3-engines-unico.

  • To find your GTK version:

    Surely one of the best gtk3 themes so far.
    I'm starting to feel comfortable with gnome again.
    Great work!

    I've browsed through all the GTK+3 themes in this site, this is clearly the better, specially if you want GTK+2 compatibility.

    I agree. One of the best themes. I wonder still why this idea has not been picked up by the gnome dev team.

    Anyway, this is a great work, and I will see if I can find the time to learn about theming in order to contribute.

    The first thing I would then like to change is the font color of the desktop icons (from black to white) and the selection box (need to be transparent).

    See the README file on the new Clearwaita archive. I added (very simple) instructions about that.

    It's now fixed. You can download the new version of Clearwaita and the selection will be semi-transparent.

    Regards.

    this is a nice idea to make gtk3 looks like clearlooks but i m thinking your theme is not mature

    maybe (i see you are french) we can discuss of your work into via irc #ubuntu-fr-themes channel

    if you don't mind

    salut à bientot (voted good anyway at least for french solidarity)

    Bonjour,

    Oui, mon thème demande sûrement plus de travail. Je l'ai fait assez rapidement, après m'être rendu compte lors de ma migration vers Gnome 3 que Clearlooks n'était pas disponible. J'ai décidé de partager ce que j'avais fait au lieu de le garder pour moi dans mon «/usr/share/themes/» :-).

    Merci pour le lien de #ubuntu-fr-themes, je ne connaissais pas ce salon. Pour l'instant, je n'ai vraiment le temps de retravailler sur le thème, mais si j'ai un peu de temps, ton lien va pouvoir servir.

    Merci,

    Jean-Philippe
