Description:

After many years of inactivity the Victory theme is back and recreated/re-imagined as a bright, flat, and minimalist theme. This theme was made using, and made primarily for, Xubuntu and Lubuntu 16.04, but should work fine with any XFCE/LXDE-based distro. Gtk3 elements should work on Gtk 3.18 (Ubuntu 16.04). Gtk 3.20 and above desktops will not work with this theme for now. I've also included variant borders and styles for Openbox. Please let me know if anyone has any problems, thoughts, etc. You can file bugs and find the latest version on its Github page: https://github.com/newhoa/victory-gtk-theme

Anyway, let me know what's good or bad, or if you have any problems or anything. Thanks again everyone... I really appreciate all the feedback, votes, and comments!

Thanks!

- Darin

For the GTK2 theme, the menus seem to lack nice contrast: light grey on dark grey. Also Chromium seems to grab some blueish color for items the bookmarks bar. I think black would look better.

Hi, I made this theme using Gtk3.2, and they've made changes in Gtk3.4 which causes some problems with this theme.

I've updated the theme to fix the white text problem. Please delete the theme you downloaded, and try downloading this new update.

Please let me know if it fixes the white text problem!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it! English was good, and thank you for the pictures!

I made this using Gnome 3.2, but Ubuntu 12.04 uses Gnome 3.4, and they made some theme changes. Here is a quick fix for the white text:

1.) Open /home/YOURNAME/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css
2.) Go to the very bottom, and add this:

Quote:

GtkWindow
{
color: @fg_color;
}

GtkWindow .cell:selected
{
color: @selected_fg_color;
}


After you add that to the bottom, save it, and log out and back in. It should work!

Let me know if you have any more problems! I've been working some on the theme, and hopefully will update it in the next month to fix a lot of these problems.

Hey dude,

You now the GTK3 Theme is broken, don't you? Every gtk3 program looks absolutely awful using your victory theme under archlinux... -__- please fix it....

I got several errors when trying to extract the files from the archive. The Cinnamon, GTK3 and Unity folders do not contain any files.

Wow, that's terrible! Thanks for letting me know! I don't know what's going on lately, but file-roller is giving me nothing but problems.

Tried it again with xarchiver and reuploaded it - everything should be there.

Please give it another try and let me know if you have any other problems! Thanks!

It works now. The files are all present and accounted for! The only problem now is Ubuntu 12.04. It kind of breaks GTK3 themes, yours included.

Hey thanks a lot for the update, glad it's all there. Ubuntu seems to not like working well with a lot of things lately... it's pretty annoying (to say the least). Wonder if it's something they plan on fixing before release? Or with the way Ubuntu is going lately, if I can even do anything about it on my end. Guess I'll go ahead and download the latest (Beta?) just to see what's going on.

Are there any Gtk3 themes that do work well with it?

Adwaita Cupertino is the only one I've seen that looks as intended in Ubuntu 12.04. The only problem with that theme is the GNOME Fallback Panel, which no theme has been able to theme correctly. It has something to do with the Indicator applet.

Okay, thanks. Guess I'll have to work on this over the next month or so.

The worse problem for me was all the text turning white, which made it unusable. Here's a rough temporary fix for anyone interested...

Add this to the bottom of the ~/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css:

Quote:

GtkWindow
{
color: @fg_color;
}

GtkWindow .cell:selected
{
color: @selected_fg_color;
}


Still a lot to fix, but that should solve the white text problem for now, anyway.

Does someone know how to make Victory look like the 2 picture that is posted? The red and gray theme!

Sure, here are is what I was using for that:

Window Border - Simple eGtk
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Simple+eGTK?content=119812

Wallpaper - one of these (I think it was a mod):
http://ipapun.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2djnqm
http://ipapun.deviantart.com/art/Grey-Inspire-143532222?q=gallery%3Aipapun%2F6250275&qo=7

Icons - Moblin
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Moblin+Unofficial+Icons?content=137740

The moblin icons I was using were in the Ubuntu repositories. It was made for netbooks, so some of the icons don't look so good on the Desktop.

Other than that, I simply changed the sidebar color to the red color, and the tooltip color (and maybe background color) to match the window border.

Hope that helps!

Hey, I really like your theme!
I only have a problem with the unity topbar I liked the way my previous theme rendered it but I don't want to drop this theme just because of it.

Do you perhaps know where in the configuration file(s) I can find the line that defines this behaviour? :f
