May be it's me, may be I am wrong, may be it's not the place here to discuss it,
but every time I test some G-*hell theme the text in the panel and icons are so
f* big(like default one).
I wonder if I need an eye doctor or ... There are some exceptions of course. :)
Good Luck P*r & Thanks f* sharing.

The text is not huge, it's just 12 pt, bolded.

Great theme! The only problem is that you're mixing px and em, which makes things messy if you adjust "Text scaling factor".

Report

Padster

Thanks :)
The default theme uses both ems and px, so are you saying this is a bug with it, too?
the thing is I'm not sure how to get everything looking right with only one, also.

Don't know about default theme, but I had to tweak some code after I changed scaling factor to 1.2

.popup-menu-item:active {
<......>
padding-top: 5px; /*LOOK -needed?*/
padding-bottom: 5px;
padding-left: 27px;
padding-right: 27px;
}

Without this the menus were crewed.

Padster

So what do you advise I do? Change those values to px?

Report

RadistMorse

Perhaps. May be this is the only place which is sensitive to the font scale factor.

Even if you add this info into readme I think it will be enough - people will adjust this manually if needed, just like I did.

Report

Padster

Oh, I just noticed you just tweaked the pixel values to what fits your settings. So it will mess it up for anyone else not using the same font size, then, eh? Yeah, I think I'll just include it in the README.

Hi again. I'm here to finally fix the font-scale problem.
I also found a small glitch in alt-tab menu. Both of these are fixed with this patch

I did the things you outlined in the first comment, and that fixed the workspace switcher padding, which I had noticed before, thanks :)

If it fixes the font-scaling issue, that's awesome, too.

About your second comment, I already have a version out for GNOME-Shell 3.4, it's got those thing fixed already :)

Nice work. Some of us at the Fedora forum are curious how you get the Fedora logo next to the Activities button like this.

Thanks.

Glad you like it :)
I'm pretty sure it's the "ActivitiesButton" extension from http://www.fpmurphy.com/gnome-shell-extensions/
I have a few extensions installed, but I think that's it.

I agree, that it's one of the most professionally feeling shell themes to date.
I tried many of them, but without going to details, this one is the only one I prefer to the default shell theme.

Those subtle gradients and not so much of contrast gives it a special taste. Plus, it can feel and look well with many kinds of wallpapers, whether they're dark or bright, makes life easier too.

I wonder when gnome devs will like to include this one as the shell default theme, shouldn't take so long. ;-)
