Simple, clean and elegant.

The icon theme I use is a little bit modified well known elementary-monochrome (by DanRabbit). The mod called absolute-mono can be downloaded here: http://rghost.net/1975508

Hi,

This is my most favorite GTK theme. Thank you vary much. Love the Absolute & Absolute Squared. I hope in future versions, you will add some color variations. For example: titlebar in Blue or Green. For some reason, the themes are now all gray, white or black. In my opinion, adding a color touch would give the theme some original touches.

Also can you make the scrollbar darker?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I'll watch what I can do with colors variations. But the problem is that I'm a bad designer. :)
As for making scrollbars darker, you can do it by yourself, because it is quite easy. :) All you should do for it is just to change the line 299 of <gtkrc> file. The value of shading is 0.95 now. Varying this value you'll get a color you probably like.

How come you are bad designer?!? Your theme looks better than that of those who are designers.

Thanks for the trick of the scrollbar shade. Can you show me how to color the titlebar as well?

As for the color of the titlebar. Here is a nice Blue and Green shades imitated from Zukitwo:

Personally, I think Absolute would look great with a blue (or green) titlebar.

А в чем проблема? Можно использовать иконки faenza. А я использую немного измененную версию elementary monochrome.

Проблему решил. Удалением hicolor и locolor. Это только в Убунте монохромные по умолчанию.

This theme has a bug that affects QT applications. To test, install Clementine music player. To test, go to playlist>shuffle mode and watch the dropdown menu flicker when the cursor moves. Apart from this, the theme is absolutely perfect, and is one of only a few, which is why I would really like this fixed.

0.7 not working it complains about line 262 in gtkrc

I installed 0.6 and it works, I also have he latest murrine-0.90.3.git

By the way what is the difference between all the different versions? alt -center-alt?


THANKS

If you have the latest murrine from git then the theme must work. Try one of the deb packages I made (see above). The versions from last ubuntu/fedora releases also work.

The difference between all the alt versions is in location of the metacity's buttons and window title.

1. Can you make a dark (like black or very dark gray) version of this theme?

2. In Chrome/Chromium the tab bar uses the same gray as elsewhere so its indistinguishable. Maybe provide a version with a dark menubar?

Besides those two minor quibbles, I really like this theme.

Thank you for interesting suggestions. Generally speaking, I have already thought of dark versions of this theme, but unfortunately I have not any free time during last months. If I have spare time I'll try to make it. Thanks.

I have to confess, I have no idea how to install this. It's not a theme package. Care to help the un-enlightened?

Ok. To install this theme you should uncompress downloaded archive and move all the folders from there into a directory "/home/your_user_name/.themes/". If this target directory does not exist then first you should create it.

This is a great team and the main reason I don't use linux is because my eyes can't stand the fonts. The font in your screenshot looks amazing tho (along with your theme).

You stated that the font you're using is Droid but in the screenshot it shows Lucida Grande. Can you please very which font your using and at what size (and also what type of rendering and DPI). That would help me very much. Thanks!

Thanks for the comment. The thing is I used Droid Sans with previous versions of the theme. The comments you read concern screenshots made for those versions. Now I use Lucida Grande as you see in the pictures. I prefer subpixel smoothing, 8 size and 96 DPI. If you want to see Droid Sans in action with 'absolute' and to compare it with Lucida Grande, try the picture I made for you: http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/6171/tmpemxwro.png

Thanks for the screenshot and your efforts. If I can get my desktop to look exactly like that your theme and font choice will make me switch to linux :)

My eyes suck I need sharpness :S

Great theme. Keep it up.
