Description:

Marples is a (gtk2/3) theme, for those who like dark themes. the name marples is derived and pays homage to Marp-1-blue theme by Malys777. - Being as it was born out of that theme. Marples is ever evolving, and i am putting a great deal of effort into the details, and subtleties. i would say the theme is beta right now, but is coming along nicely. I'll probably consider it a good clean release by 2.0

*A quick disclaimer - i am working on this a little everyday, so changes happen fast. Once, i complete this theme, i will then remix it into a lighter marples theme :) *

Gnome 3.2 broke Marples, so i am now in the process of fixing it (STILL!) ...lol

I've now changed this theme somewhat, for now there are very few borders, and i've been messing about' with the toolbar, which i will be revising. the menu is a little better now, and i got rid of some of the white frames, on various widgets.

Mutter now supports transparency, so everything should look similar to compiz, minus blur - which only compiz has, from what i can tell.

.cell is now a gradient. i've done this as 3.2 killed my sidebar gradient. in gnoe 3.0 the .sidebar and .cell weren't tied into each other, but that is not the case anymore :( . atleast i killed the frame :)


anyways, expect some more changes over the next few days.




* FIREFOX COLOR ISSUES:

Quick Note: A few people elsewhere were a little frustrated by firefox with dark themes, so i thought i should post about this - if you have issues with Firefox - text boxes being black, cant read text, etc...

..you'll need to access about:config (firefox config) in FF's addressbar, then type 'colors' in the searchbar... you can set firefox to ignore your theme colors, and/or specify your own colors ~ just open youtube in a separate tab (or other problematic sites), while you modify them to suit. it works like a charm :)

EXTRAS:

a few people have asked me for a couple of my GFX/logo/icons that i have made for gnome, they are available for download below, here is a quick run down of where they go, in the linux file-system;
____________________________________

* 1. Alien Gnome Logo
____________________________________

this file is called "side.png", and is used with gnome-system-monitor. Simply replace the existing side.png found here;

/usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-system-monitor/side.png
_____________________________________

* 2. Gnome-tweak-tool alternate logo
_____________________________________

the file is called "welcome.png. you must replace;

/usr/share/gnome-tweak-tool/welcome.png

with the new welcome.png file.

I use Archlinux, which allows me to stop future updates to both these files (so my logos never get replaced through an update ~ the NoUpgrade flag in pacman.conf). But i'm not sure how to do this in other distro's, so you are on your own, im sure it's possible though... ;)
___________________________________________________

*NEW* 3. Gnome-system-monitor 3.1.4 (dark remix, black graphs, other tweaks)
___________________________________________________

For this you will have to have GIT installed, and be willing to compile it because the colors are 'hardcoded', i have removed the cairo highlight tab crap... *my alien logo doesn't need to be downloaded seperately as it lives in my git branch. i have made other subtle changes to the source code.

steps from commandline;

1. git clone git://gitorious.org/gnome-system-monitor-blackgtk3/gnome-system-monitor-blackgtk3.git

2. cd into directory

3. ./autogen.sh

4. ./configure --prefix=/usr

5. make

6. sudo make install

enjoy ;)

a SHOUTOUT to the original author;

the original theme, Marp-1-blue was created by Malys777 found here;

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Marp-01-blue?content=143597

from that link you can find other themes made by him, as well as a link to his profile.

the great thing about Malys777's themes, is the use of pixmaps. one of the things that bothered me about gtk3 right off the hop, was the lack of available themes built around pixmaps. I'm glad Malys made his themes, they might be a little too colorful, a little 'busy' and not really my style, but awesome nonetheless, based on the code and his ideas.

well, i would have assumed it is perfectly okay to modify the theme, being as your themes are GPL and all. ~

sorry, if you don't like it. i like your themes, hence why i started to modify it, i nthe first place ;)

sorry dude, first theme i have ever posted. I don't know if you noticed by i also have edited this, to show a link to the original theme and naming you as it's author ~ i hope that is okay.

one question for you though, if you don't mind?

the pink / peachy color in the menus, where is it defined?? and/or what is the html color code for that color?? (i'm having trouble tracking it down)

Most colors are defined in these files directly settings.ini, gtk.css, gtk-widgets.css and gtkrc

ya i thought so, it's just the one color i am having trouble finding... i'm sure i'll figure it out.

...it's the pink text in the menu, where you have the command key ... like;

cut *Ctrl-X*

i'm sure with enough digging i will find it. (im looking for the gtk3 one)

Is that real RGBA you are using? GTK+3.x is supposed to have support for it, but I was never able to find out if it really did.

yes that is real rgba, the background image is rgba and certain widgets / application windows will show transparency :)

i just haven't figured out how to have all of the windows do that.
