GTK3 Themes

7.2
Description:

OneStepBack is a Gtk 2 and 3 theme with some colors and embossed widgets inspired by the good old NextStep look. I'm old.

It is developed from scratch, is light and minimal, uses only three shades of grays and one color. That was the challenge.

It has been tested on Arch Linux with Gnome-Shell, Gtk+ from 3.16 to 3.22, a good amount of Gtk2 and Gtk3 applications. A lot of widget controls are still missing and it is not tested at all with unity or xfce.

Current version is 0.991, released in July 2018.

The screenshots show OneStepBack theme and some color variations. They show also: Ubo Icons Theme with personal additions, Dash to Dock and Dynamic Top Bar Gnome Shell extensions.

To install the theme, unzip the archive and copy the theme in your theme directory. There is no need for any extra engine.

This is a GPL 3 free software. Feel free to change and share the code.

aha! thnx I didn't know that ! Ok so I looked up libgtk3 in synaptic. On 16.04 it seems to be 3.18.9-1 and on 17.10 its 3.22.25-0 Hmm but wait then I dont get the numbering. In the .themes directory there are subdirs like 'gtk-3.0' Shouldnt that then be 'gtk-3.22' or something?...

It's not, and I agree, it's counter intuitive: Gnome's way... Please try this old version, but note it's not as complete as the recent ones:

YES ! It works :) In the theme's directory I now made 2 directories: one called gtk-3.16 containing the files of the older theme and a dir gtk-3.20 containing the newer files. With this setup, it works on both xubuntu 16.04 and 17.10. Maybe you can include the older one in your distr. too..

anyway, thnx for helping me out !

Well, you are looking for someone with artistic talent. So not me !

But I did my best to make the colors easily editable. These are located at the beginning of the gtkrc and gtk.css files. Depending of the colors, you may have to modify also the image files located in img/.

Nice theme but I can't see icon highlight area start, I can see only the highlighted icon.
Can you change it?

Thanks ! You're right, seems a good idea to have a colored area selection. I'll have a look at this. (Probably not this week because I'm short in time.)

It's easy for the gtk3 part: simply add to the end of the file OneStepBack/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

.rubberband {
background-color: alpha(@darker_color,0.5);
}

I don't know yet how to do it in the gtk2 part...

Ok. Seems the gtk3 version of LibreOffice is going crazy. I have to find the documentation of the theming of gtk3 version of LIbreOffice and add a new exception...

As a workaround, may I suggest you put a

export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk

in your ~/.bashrc file to use the gtk2 version ?

To be more specific: as far as I know you're using the QT version of LibreOffice, that is converted in a gtk3 version by your system/settings. It's better to use a genuine gtk2 version putting "export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk" in your ~/.bashrc file.
