Description:

MediterraneanNight Series 2.03

12 Themes for Gnome 3.6.x and 3.8.x

* IMPORTANT *
- GTK2 theme uses gtk2-engines-murrine and gtk2-engines-pixbuf
- Inside the theme folder (MediterraneanNight) there is a readme.txt file with some really simple instructions to customize the theme (styles for nautilus, 4 tab styles, metacity buttons)
- Ubuntu 12.10 comes by default with gnome 3.6 and nautilus-3.4 (though you can upgrade to nautilus-3.6), but if you have nautilus-3.4, you must set the theme for nautilus-3.4, as explained in the readme.txt

- Almost all the themes are the same, varying between each of them only the color scheme and some bitmaps, which provides an opportunity for the more restless to create your own theme with few changes.

Take for example the series MediterraneanTribute

Known issues:
- qBitTorrent with MediterraneanGrayDark.

-------------------
* FEDORA 19 users *
-------------------
The default installation of the package gtk2-engines, not install you really need, which is this:
Murrine GTK2 engine
gtk-murrine-engine-0.98.2-3fc19


- MediterraneanNight also support nautilus-3.4. (see readme.txt)
---------------------------------
* Select style for nautilus *
---------------------------------
Edit the file ../MediterraneanNight/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

go to the last line of the file, there are seven options for nautilus:
Nautilus 3.6.x for gnome-shell 3.6.x and/or unity (by default)
@import url("nautilus36.css");

3 options for nautilus 3.4.x (gnome-shell)
1.- "gnome-nautilus34-gray.css" (nautilus sidebar and toolbar dark gray)
2.- "gnome-nautilus34-light.css" (nautilus sidebar and toolbar light)
3.- "gnome-nautilus34-gray-light.css" (nautilus sidebar dark gray and toolbar light)

3 options for nautilus 3.4.x (UNITY)
1.- "unity-nautilus34-gray.css"
2.- "unity-nautilus34-light.css"

Upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04, MediterraneanTributeBlue is now unusable :

Windows list (vertical for me) : http://i35.servimg.com/u/f35/11/59/11/59/window10.png

I am sad, after extensive research, it was the best theme that I could find ...

I use the Cairo dock and with "MediterraneLight" the background in the sound menu appears white (see http://www.digimage.de/Public/MediterraneLight_SoundsettingsMenu.jpg).

Very nice theme! Thanks!
But in Thunderbird there is an unsightly problem (see http://www.digimage.de/Public/MediterranLight_Scrennshot.jpg):
The inactive selection appears with illegible black text (in contrast to the active selection where it is fine).
How can I change this?
Thanks for your help.

This theme has problems on ubuntu 14.04, screenshots highlighting elements that look out of place:
http://i.imgur.com/S65U5Lb.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/TXZgYHw.jpg

It looks like whatever elements gtk uses for those gtk items are not themed by this theme. My question is, can anyone tell me which are the names of those items so I can update mine? I've already had to update this theme a lot to make it tolerable under ubuntu 14.04, to the author, please review it and see if it can be updated...

For whatever it's worth I found the element. Commenting this:

GtkOrientable {
background-color: @theme_bg_color;
}

from the gtk-widgets.css file fixed that issue.

Hi very nice theme.

Thus a little problem I noticed on focus: using the tab key to change the active widget should chnage its focus and it is not visible on toggle buttons (checkbox, radio)

Hi, thank you very much for these themes, really nice! I'm using MediterraneanDarkest but i'm having some problems in Firefox, such as some texts i print are to light or some type boxes have a dark background, some doesn't (so writing light text on white background isn't comfortable).
Is there any way to avoid firefox being affected by the theme?
Thank you very much, sorry my english.

You can for example apply a Firefox theme that suits you. Take a look at Firefox Add-ons.

On the other hand, this is an issue that should be addressed in the theme (or FF) code, for better integration.

Dear people,

Instead of being all the time here asking for help (that probably won't come anytime soon), what if we joined our efforts to learn and improve this family of themes?

As a first step, I have put a git repository at

https://github.com/rbrito/pkg-mediterranean-gtk-themes

The master branch is still the same as version 2.03 of the tarball, but I have been integrating the changes that others have provided as patches stored in the `debian/patches` directory.

Once we reach a conclusion of maintaining this set of themes collaboratively, I will apply all the patches and potentially tag/release a new version (say, 2.04 or 2.10 or anything else) and delete those patches from the `debian/patches` directory.

I would kindly ask you if you know how to write GTK3 themes to lend a hand here (even if you don't use any of the themes yourself), as I am still learning as I am doing.

If you know anybody who has experience or has ever tweaked a GTK3 theme, please, let him/her know of this initiative and that we need some help.

Unfortunately, it seems that the original author of this theme (and, to be fair, of many other attractive themes) is not interested in updating the respective themes to newer versions of GTK and only be here clamoring for their attention will probably bear no fruits. His last response was, if I am not mistaken, in July of 2013.

This is Free Software after all, and as long as there are interested parties in the project, it will survive.

That being said, if the original author (or even authors of other projects) want to join the maintainance (so that the burden of maintainance becomes distributed on not entirely on one person's shoulders), feel free to join me and others.

Let's create a very attractive and professional looking theme for GTK applications, be they GTK2 or GTK3.


Regards,

Rogério Brito.

Hi.

Just for the record and in the best spirit of doing things in the open, I have already received some help from kind members of our community:

https://github.com/rbrito/pkg-mediterranean-gtk-themes/graphs/contributors

We have started maintaining and improving the theme (as well as we currently can and know) so that it is starting to work with newer versions of GTK without looking too bad.

If you know anything about theming or is just curious about experimenting things like "what happens if I change this color in this theme to this other color", then we would love your help.

We are making progress, but we could always use some help, especially in making the theme easier to maintain.

You don't need to know anything about "programming" a theme to help. Just file an issue (preferrably with a screenshot of it showing weird things) and that will bring our attention to the problem.

Of course, if you can provide patches, that's even better, because we are all still learning this (and this is your opportunity to both learn from us and teach us something).


Regards,

Rogério.
