Description:

This is a dark purple GTK theme intended for people who appreciate dark/low contrast colour schemes.

Edit - March 2017:
Note that this is from 2012 and until very recently, GTK3 was getting constant updates that broke themes. So this theme doesn't work at all. Now that Gtk3's theme API is finally stable, I might eventually release a working version of the theme.

Definitely update this. It's been one of my favorite themes for a long time.

Thanks, I'm glad to hear it. Now that the GTK3 css/theming system is finally stable, I'll definitely be doing it. I've been working out how to do GTK3 themes and now I feel like I've worked things out well enough, so I'll probably be able to release an updated version this week.

Awesome! This is one of my favorite themes on here. So is your other theme, the Sun/Solaris looking one. I think your two themes, Themacs (basically this theme with a different color scheme) and a good Windows 9x theme are the best you can get on here.

I look forward to an update!

I tried to search this up again on google, but I kept getting results for "penis" or "animal penis". The funny part is that you're what I would call "king of hyper-penis".

Did you change anything except the colours of the default gtk3 engine theme?

Report

I changed the padding and spacing as well as the colours.

Retro! Not my type of thing but I appreciate the concept. And the bold use of COLOUR! Especially in a world where there only seem to be white, black, blue and a whole lot of greys! This is a nice change.

This truly is a pretty one of a kind theme. It brings the Old Fashioned Look and feel back to GTK3 (I'm not aware of any current themes that do that.)

I'm not the hugest fan of purple or the window borders/buttons but other then that it looks pretty unique.

I'd be interested in your thought about bringing perhaps Grey , Red and Blue?

I could see this as a openbox pro-users theme :)

Seems like you put alot of hard work put into it, Great job.

I just saw the 2 other comments saying doing Blue would be cool! Haha :)

Also what about the slackware n-curses setup "teal"?
Or FreeBSD Setup "Grey"

Really fun theme. I might mess around with a few color variants and send them your way if they turn out.

Thanks for your comments. Yeah, I think it'd be great to make different coloured versions of the theme. I think I started trying to make a blue version, but I ran into some issues and gave up. At some point I'll have another go at it. I'll be interested in seeing any modified versions of the theme you come up with.

I haven't downloaded your theme yet but it does look nice. And I second the idea of a blue variation (deep blue hopefully).

Thanks for your creation.

Later...

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

At the moment, I don't know if it supports fallback mode, since I use XFCE myself. You could try it and see, but it's likely that things won't look entirely right.

At some point I'm going to install Gnome 3 on one of my computers so I can test the theme with it, and hopefully fix any problems.

I think I found a bug in the site. I just tried to upload some new screenshots, but no matter what I did, the first and second screenshots wouldn't change. I tried uploading a new screenshot using the 'change' button, but the image stayed the same. Then I tried clicking 'delete' and uploading the new images, but after uploading the old images came back. I eventually just uploaded one of the new screenshots to the screenshot 3 slot which was empty.

Anyway, thanks everyone for your interest.

Oh, strange. Now the old image is gone and has been replaced with the new image. I guess there wasn't a problem after all.

Don't worry, it takes time for the site to update. I have noticed similar issues.

This theme is very cool. I would like to see other variations of this theme, maybe blue. I like it.

Greetings!

I would just like to add, if you're a Gnome2/3 user, you should read the readme file. The readme file is included in the tarball.

In the best tradition Windows 98. I do not like such themes

If you don't like it, don't use it. This theme is designed for people who like retro style user interfaces. I can understand that some people won't like it, but I ask you to understand that there are people who do prefer Windows 98 style.

I agree, if you don't like it, then don't use it. If you're not using it then don't waste time with negative comments. I think this theme looks good for its purpose.

This looks nothing like Windows 98.
