MediterraneanNight Series
GTK3 Themes
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)

I know that, but I want to help make it better for future release, that's why I report a bug, so you could fix it at some point :) Your theme is best one I had installed on my desktop ever, I hope you will continue developing it :)

You are awesome trastes! I love the new white style, its like adwaita, but way better (and doesn't look crappy with apps like chromium and clementine like adwaita's gtk2 theme does)

Very good work, this theme continues to be the most beautiful GTK theme out there.

Hi, I just installed Fedora 18 with Gnome 3 for my desktop. I was looking for a new theme and found your work here. I installed the themes and decided to go with MediterraneanTributeDark, really like it. I have not found any issues, and it looks great, so congratulations on a job well done.

Thanks.

Hi,

I love so much this theme. Would you be OK to consider adding a green color theme, in the same veine than what you have already made in blue?

Thanks in advance.

Synaptic GTK3 looks ok with MediterraneanNight, but when Synaptic is working (e.g.: from the menu, select Settings > Repositories, the window looks quite bad - screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/bXutXyi.png

Tested under Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

And by the way, the Sync and Bluetooth indicator switches bug still occurs in Raring.

Hello Trastes.
Excellent work, I use Mediterranean Darkest in Ubuntu 12.10, with Unity. To my taste the best dark theme for Ubuntu.
In gtk.css file, I chose the option:
"@ import url (" tabs-themed.css ")" for blue tabs.
But in Nautlilus 3.6.2, Nemo 1.1.2 , Gedit and Banshee, do not change and are in a darker gray when active.
In Marlin works, the active tabs take the blue and the inactive a blue similar to the active selection in the left pane.
This detail does not affect the utilization the theme. I'll keep using.
Thanks!

Hola Trastes.
Excelente trabajo, utilizo Mediterranean Darkest en Ubuntu 12.10, con Unity. Para mi gusto es el mejor tema oscuro para Ubuntu.
En el archivo gtk.css, elegí la opción: "@import url("tabs-themed.css")" para tener solapas de color azul.
Pero en Nautlilus 3.6.2, Nemo 1.1.2, Gedit y Banshee, no se modifican y quedan de un gris mas oscuro cuando están activas.
En Marlin Sí funciona, las solapas activas toman el color azul y las inactivas un azul similar a la selección activa del panel izquierdo.
Este detalle no afecta en absoluto la funcionalidad del tema. Lo seguiré usando.
Gracias!!!

Hola Guillermo,

Tienes razón con los tabs, está hecho así a propósito, te explico, los tabs de nautilus y nemo son distintos debido a peticiones, varios usuarios me pidieron que el tab activo fuera del mismo color que el fondo de la vista de iconos.

Los otros tabs distintos, terminal, gedit y epiphany son de cosecha propia. Al ser tabs multi-documento (no de propiedades o configuración), quise darles un toque distinto emulando una integración con las toolbars y menubars.

De todas formas, si prefieres que los tabs de todas las apps gtk3 sean iguales, en el próximo update haré algo para que sea fácil ponerlo como quieres, te avisaré cuando lo tenga.

Lo de banshee es otra historia ya que es una app gtk2 y ahí tengo menos juego, al menos de forma fácil.

Saludos y gracias por tus comentarios :)

P.D.
No lo traduzco al ingles porque mi ingles es malísimo y me cuesta mucho :)

Hi,

Me again, this time with another issue on XFCE 4.10. After I applied Mediterranean theme, the desktop now have a white background around the icon text. Before that, the icon text was written directly on the wallpaper. Can you please show me how to fix that?

Screenshot (icon text on XFCE Desktop have white background): http://tinypic.com/r/dgqge8/6

Hi, Im not trastes but, I can help you, the problem that you have, is more fault than xfce than the theme, do this and try

mousepad ~/.gtkrc-2.0

and paste this

style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
XfdesktopIconView::selected-label-alpha = 100
XfdesktopIconVIew::ellipsize-icon-labels = 1

XfdesktopIconView::shadow-x-offset = 1
XfdesktopIconView::shadow-y-offset = 1
XfdesktopIconView::shadow-color = "#000000"
XfdesktopIconView::selected-shadow-x-offset = 1
XfdesktopIconView::selected-shadow-y-offset = 1
XfdesktopIconView::selected-shadow-color = "#000000"

XfdesktopIconView::cell-spacing = 0
XfdesktopIconView::cell-padding = 0
XfdesktopIconView::cell-text-width-proportion = 2

base[NORMAL] = "#3F6BA4"
base[SELECTED] = "#3F6BA4"
base[ACTIVE] = "#3F6BA4"

fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"

Hi Oscar,

May I buy you a beer? The solution you suggested works like a champion. I have asked this question in a few forums. Never got an asnwer. Today, I got the right answer within a day.

I suppose you suggested the settings in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 because this would fix the "icon text background" issue regardless of the theme I selected in /usr/share/themes?

In other words, if I integrated your solution in /usr/share/themes/MediterraneanNightDarkest/gtk-2.0/gtkrc directly, the issue may show up again if I select another Mediterranean color theme?

I almost did no use xfce, I see long time ago the solution in a blog, may can be integrated to the theme but Im not sure, becase are options of xfce, not directly to gtk, that good that work for you

PD: sorry for my english

The highlighting colours for the tribute version look too mismatched, highlighting a file in a browser etc or a bookmark in the filebrowser menu still shows as the Mediterranean blue but would look much better in a sandy yellow to match the tribute colour themes, the two colours dont compliment each other at all
