MinimaLista
GTK2 Themes
Description:

MinimaLista is a minimal version of Murrina-LiNsta by etiennealaurent. All the images and colors are from Murrina-LiNsta.

This version 0.10, contains extra color style codes for menubars, scrollbars, panels, and progressbars. By default it is not enabled. To enable it, replace gtkrc with gtkrc-extra_colors.

The tarball also contains a modified gnome-theme-manager that has color controls for the extra colors. It contains a precompiled version built on Ubuntu feisty with the most recent updates applied. The tarball also contains the source code patch that was applied to the control-center_2.18.1.orig.tar.gz that can be obtained from Ubuntu.com source repositories.

If you don't want to install the binaries, you can always change the colors by editing the gnome-color-scheme settings in the gtkrc.

The second screenshot shows this new experimental code in action.

Enjoy.


Metacity theme is a slightly modified version of StormCloud by hbweb500. Images were changed to match the black panels.


Requires:
- murrine gtk2 engine
- pixmap gtk2 engine

Hey! I love the theme, but there seems to be one small problem thats kid of annoying. You can see the example here: http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/1088/errorgz8.png
Any idea on how to fix that?

I really like being able to use the color dialogue (why don't more people use it?) It allows me to match it to my current gtk theme and gives me another option in place of the Orange-LinstaBlack gtk theme.

My dislikes are minor, but here goes:

1. The window buttons in the metacity theme should have some sort of indicator active for when you're hovering over them, imo. This is an important visual cue for people with high resolutions with small buttons. It's not a big deal to me, because I'm using a different window decorator anyway, but it would be if I wanted to use the one that comes with this theme.

2. The second one may be a result of you darkening colors in response to a post above, but the vast differences in color hue is very undesirable to me. Specifically speaking, my menubar and button highlight, for the active window in my window list, are both a dark orange, as I want them to be. But the scrollbar, menu-item and button highlight are nearly pastel and I'm unable to adjust them to go with the dark rich orange visible throughout the rest of my theme.

Having said all that, I really do like it a lot!

Thanks for the good comments. I'm currently working on extending the gnome-theme-manager color settings dialog to allow setting not only the window, input boxes and selected items, but also menubars, panels, scrollbars and progress bars.

For the time being, if you want to change the saturation of the scrollbars, just edit the gtkrc file and locate the theme-scrollbar section and replace:

mix(0.5, @bg_color, @selected_bg_color)

with @selected_bg_color.

This will give a full saturation color for the scrollbars.

If you want to saturate the button-hilight, just replace the "mix" settings with the @selected_bg_color though out the gtkrc file.

Okay... I see now.

Thanks!

I'll be looking forward to your extensions for the color dialog box, because I didn't realize this was possible.

It isn't possible without replacing the gnome-theme-manager. The patches and binaries are now included in the theme tarball.

This looks pretty nice, but can you make a version with all orange highlights, like the one on the selected window in the window bar? If not, could you make the current light blue highlights a little darker?

Report

I've updated the package to make the selection color stronger.

If you want an orange colored theme, simply open the theme details from the gnome-theme-manager and select the colors tab. The selected items colors controls the menubar, scrollbar and selections.

Do you have the pixmap engine installed?

I'm having the same problem, yet I know I have pixmap installed because all other features in the theme that utilize the engine are working properly.

Here it is:
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*Button" style "theme-panelbuttons"
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*" style "theme-panel"
Read it carefully. You set PanelToplevel*Button's style to theme-panelbuttons, but then in the next line you override THAT with something that covers all of PanelToplevel*'s styles to theme-panel.

Aha, got it!
Add this:
widget_class "*Panel*GtkToggleButton" style "theme-panelbuttons"

And for my next performance, I'll make these buttons use the Murrine engine instead of pixmap! :D

PanelToplevel*GtkToggleButton should be covered under the PanelToplevel*Button wildcard match. I've reordered the two entries. See if that helps. If not, I'll add an entry for GtkToggleButton

Tried. Nothing.

Also, if you DO do it like that, then launch notification-created buttons use theme-panel (when means no skinning), but making it more generalized will skin the buttons in logoff/shutdown dialogues (a big no-no!)

Oh, and I wish I could change my username on this CMS. I don't go by "KnuxT15" anymore >_>

Is this what you are proposing for the GNOME PANEL section:

####### GNOME PANEL SETTINGS ###################
class "*PanelApplet*" style "theme-panel"
class "*PanelWidget*" style "theme-panel"
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*" style "theme-panel"
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*GtkToggleButton" style "theme-panelbuttons"
widget_class "*PanelApplet*" style "theme-panel"
widget_class "*PanelWidget*" style "theme-panel"
################################################

1: I actually go by the name of Techokami. When I said "CMS" I meant "Content Management System", which refers to the software this place runs on.
2: Yes, that's essentially what I'm suggesting.

Very nice theme. However there is a slight problem in OpenOffice: the menu is in black and doesn't change to white when using this theme which makes the menu almost unreadable.

Report

This is a known issue with OO and FF. With FF, the menubar text can be changed with an entry in userChrome.css. But OO is a bit more difficult.

The problem arises because OO and FF use the MenuItem text color to draw the MenuBar entries.

I, and many other (I'm sure) are trying to solve this. As soon as something is found, I will update the theme.

Thank you for your reply. I already found a thread on the Ubuntu-forum http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=465931, but of course it would be much easier if you could find an 'automatic' solution where the theme itself could make the change. I know, it is probably asking to much...

I forgot: for FF the solution could be to make a MinimaLista skin...
