Description:

Elementaryish for 13.04 and 12.10

Theme contains some OS X-like widgets, so if you're alergic to anything mac-ish...

::Installation::

- Extract .zip archive, and copy "elementaryish" / "elementary-dkpanel" folder to your .themes folder, or to usr/share/themes/ . Then change your theme with "gnome-tweak-tool" or "Ubuntu Tweak".

::Compatibility::

Theme was designed for Ubuntu 13.04 and 12.10 and is working well on Unity and Gnome-Classic.
Elementaryish is based on Greybird so it should work with Xfce.

Theme was designed to use with globalmenu, but it also looks good with standard menubar.

::Emerald::

- In 13.04 Gnome-panel session with Compiz some people have problems with maximized window borders (it's gtk-window-decorator bug). Emerald also has this problem but only with some themes - so i've made Emerald theme for elementaryish (and egtk) that is free of this bug, and works well with gnome-panel session

- Emerald theme is in "Emerald theme" folder

:: Beta for Gala/Mutter::

- This is 1.1.5 version but with dark color scheme and gnome3 window theme, so if you use app that uses dark color scheme you'll have nice dark windows and widgets. Here is screenshot: dolsilwa.deviantart.com/art/Gn…

- You can find it in "Beta" folder.

::Credits::

To developers from Shimmer Project - they made Graybird which is base for my themes.
To DanRabbit - designer and developer of original elementary theme.
To Trastes - creator of theme Advaita Cupertino - i've borrowed few lines of his excellent code :-)

::Extras::

- My persona theme for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/elementaryish-5i/
- Zeeeeee's and Loklaan's full Firefox theme: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/elementary-firefox/?src=ss (compatibile with light elementaryish theme)

I've just noticed that context menu bgcolor is different in GTK3 (light greyish) and GTK2 (blackish) apps.
Is this deliberate or would you like to make them same?

It was my mistake - i've uploaded fixed version a minute ago. Everything is in one zip file (also blue sidebar version) on DeviantArt. I've also added elementary lion emerald theme.

It's a preferential matter but I feel blue sidebar bgcolor looks better (as in Greybird), couldn't you at least offer such a choice?

Here's a possible "userChrome.css" to make Thunderbird (main window in particular) more in line with this theme:

/*------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
/* set default namespace to XUL */
/* Tool Bar */
#toolbar, toolbox, .tabmail-tabs {
background-image: none !important;
background-color: #DEDEDE !important;
}
/* Message Pane Header background + Date/Time color */
#msgHeaderView {
background-color: #DEDEDE !important;
color: #000000 !important;
}
/* Message Pane Header From/Subject/To labels */
#msgHeaderView .headerName {
color: !important;
}
/* Message Pane Header From/Subject/To details */
#msgHeaderView .headerValue {
color: #000000 !important;
}
/* Folder Pane */
#folderTree treechildren {
background-color: #D7DDE4 !important;
}
/* Folder Pane Hover Effect */
#folderTree > treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(hover) {
color: #FFA500 !important;
}
/* Status Bar */
statusbarpanel {
background-color: #DEDEDE !important;

Thanks a lot!
This is great :-)
I think you can use two excuses for BS:
1) Elementaryish doesn't mean Elementary, and
2) It's also based on Greybird ;-)

Hi
In fact i feel the same way - light blue sidebar (more mac-ish) looks better for me. But, i try to be faithful to elementary design :-/

Hi..
First of all, your theme looks great, just beautiful, so I downloaded it on my Elementary OS.. :) And all works perfect, except that view icons in File manager are separated with one tiny line between first and second one.. I know that your theme was predicted for Ubuntu users, but I really like it, so pls, can you fix this bug..? :)

Hi. I'm glad you like my theme :-) I've tried few times to solve this problem in the past, but when i did it, nautilus view buttons were screwed up. So for now, i just don't have idea what to do.

Thanks for this nice looking theme.
I would love to see the Dark Panel variant with matching Metacity (dark window titlebar) and GTK (dark toolbar and menubar).

I'm glad you like it :-) Completely dark theme will probably be in release for gnome 3.8, but it's really a lot of work.

Why a Gtk3 theme is announced for Ubuntu only? I'd like to know.

From a user point of view it may look strange :-) But from a themer point of view differences between Gtk-based user interfaces are really huge. For example if you make theme for Ubuntu you have to keep in mind that there will be no menubar - because there is appmenu - so toolbar and titlebar should blend with each other. But when you design theme for Gnome-Shell there is a visible menubar - so you have to make a design where menubar and titlebar blend (or even better make menubar with nice gradient, darker bottom line dividing it from toolbar, and lighter line giving it more depth). But you can't have both - because themed menubar makes unity-panel and elementary wingpanel look somewhat strange. On the other hand, plain, not themed menubar looks really ugly in gnome shell. And that is only menubar ;-) Look at Gnome Cupertino - it's an excellent theme, but it's creator - Trastes - had to make different versions for unity, for gnome-shell with gnome 3.4, 3.6 and i think there is also different version for 3.8. And there is also xfce and pantheon which also has completely different apps and design. There was no problem when we had gnome 2, but with gnome 3 and all those different desktop environments, thaiming is just pain.

Hmm... i've based my theme on graybird - that's why they share this bug. I'll try to figure out what's happening.
