Description
-----------
Based on a Ubuntu 18.04 design concept. Works with GNOME 3.20 and up.

Wallpaper is included. More preview images are at the GitHub page since GL has an image limit.

Extensions
----------
Dash to dock. Enable panel mode and position it on the left.
Dynamic Panel Transparency. The non-dark variant comes with a semi-transparent panel. In an ideal world, the top panel would become completely black when a window is maximized but we don't live in that world yet. I highly recommend this extension.

What about them? The square for the maximize icon? The circle around the icons being gone? I don't mind changing them if people don't like them.

They were very unique, good looking and original. Also, Theres now a blue egg where used to be an nice, monochrome Arch logo. I restored the last version, which was really really nice (TO ME). Beauty is a subjective matter, you know that, right? What can I say is, you have the most unique and well thought theme around here, distro-centric and all, and I really thank you for that!

Well, the funny thing is that I got rid of them because they were the same buttons used in the Arc theme. I'll fix the egg (you're using dash to panel?) and upload a version with the old buttons.

Thats correct, this only happens with Dash-to-panel. I never realized they were Arc's, they are so different! I think there's no problem to use them

I just updated it. The old (but tweaked) window buttons are back and Arch along with a couple other variants don't have a background on dash to panel.

Ubuntu logo on the launcher looks pixelated when you reduce the launcher icon sizes, I always use 32 instead of 48, but then the Ubuntu logo looks bad and pixelated.

Will you make a Debian version? If you don't have the time, will you please guide me how to change the applications icon to the Debian one?

I can do this normally (with Arc-theme) by changing the view-appgrid-symbolic.svg to the desired icon but it seems that in this the theme the icon is built in the shell-theme itself and the coloring is done using CSS.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Report

Sure. I forgot Debian ships with GNOME, actually. The icon can be replaced by replacing the something-launcher.svg file in the shell theme's assets folder but the coloring is hardcoded, sorry about that. There's only so many variants that can be available until it becomes unfeasible.

Oh. No problem then. I'll stick with Arc till there's some way to change the applications-icon and I agree with you that with the number of distros out there, it's simply non-feasible to support all of them.

Great work anyway :D

Please add index.theme and metacity elements so that QT applications can be themed as well. I want to use this theme but I can't bear the sight of a naked QT-based application.

Report

I might be missing something obvious, but with qt5ct set to inherit my GTK theme under GNOME, my Qt apps definitely don't seem naked. What desktop are you using? Metacity shouldn't be involved, should it?

I am using GNOME Shell, 3.24, on Ubuntu. Fairly straightforward setup and have no issues with any other GTK3 themes. But this one just doesn't apply to QT apps at all (link shows Shutter, but the same issue also shows up on Enpass and others):

How odd. I have another machine where I don't have any Qt apps installed and just installed KCalc (and all the KDE dependencies) to check, and it's falling back to something that looks like Oxygen, not that "naked" Windows 95 look. I get the same result regardless of what theme I have selected (At least with High Contrast, Adwaita, or United, since that's all I have installed on that machine.)

There are a couple of different ways to force Qt apps to follow your GTK styling - my preferred one is by installing qt5ct and setting the theming to GTK. But if this can be fixed via a theme index, that's good to know.

Are the new blue buttons that appear in certain places a Suru element? I've really appreciated all the other changes I've noticed, but those stick out a little!

V2.2 20 days ago

Bug fixes.
Compact versions.
Debian + Antergos variants.
GTK3 check and radio buttons are done through CSS instead of with external assets.
Toolbuttons don't have the 3D effect applied to them anymore.
Unity support (only Ubuntu and Ubuntu-Alt variants)
Shell overview is darker with a slight gradients.
New window buttons.

V2.1.3 2 months ago

More mundane buttons to avoid rogue white on white issues. Both buttons and entry fields inherit more of Suru to balance out their dumbing down.

Fixed some background color inconsistencies and numerous GTK2 issues.

The slider and terminal closer resembles Unity 8's. In the former's case, it looked too similar to Material Design's.

Checkboxes and radio buttons are now smaller.

Shell OSD elements now use a border image which lets them stand out a bit more.

The list view has soft borders between items for easier differentiation.

If using the transparent Shell theme and desktop icons were enabled, there would be a white line above the panel, this has been removed and desktop icon text is now white.

V2.1.2 2 months ago

Tweaked transparency for visibility reasons.
Cleared up issue with the Shell crashing when opening a couple apps. Source was the background color to indicate running status in dash to dock so they've been removed. Sorry about that.

V2.1.1 2 months ago

Tweaked the palette to match the Ubuntu/Suru palette.
The notification dot in the Shell theme matches the variant's primary color (orange for Ubuntu, blue for Fedora, etc).
Changed the look of the window shadow.
Overshoot/undershoot coloring is less prominent.
Thicker Shell calendar arrows.
Increased the size of checkboxes and moved over to new Ambiance-based check and radio buttons for irony's sake and also because Unity 8's assets are too thin and won't look good in case.

Fixes:
Selected progressbars were all white.
A couple small hover/active state styling inconsistencies.
Windows would pop when changing from focus from one to the other.
The Shell's rounded buttons would have a black background color behind them.
Dialog boxes had no shadow behind them.
GTK2 separators were the same color as the background. (W O W!)

V2.0.1 3 months ago

Finetuning, couple fixes (notebook tabs would sometimes be in the primary color for some reason) and variants for everybody. Previews are on the github page since there's just too many images right now. If you want a more agnostic launcher logo, for now, you can grab a couple logos in the launcher icons archive and do some renaming. I don't know how to do anything except for loops in bash right now so no script yet, sorry.

V2.0 3 months ago

The GTK2 and GTK3 themes have been overhauled and the Shell theme has gotten a couple of tweaks but nothing as extensive as the GTK themes. The purple buttons have regrettably been scrapped because of a dead end problem with Firefox, but hey, no more grey text on purple buttons at least! A Fedora variant is now included.

V1.8 to V1.9 3 months ago

Bug fixes and coherency improvements.

V1.8 3 months ago

A whole lot of cleaning up was done. The colours are a lot more balanced, readability and focus has been upped, etc. Don't feel bad about reporting bugs!

V1.7.6 3 months ago

Blaze it edition. Couple fixes for the Light theme, more than just a couple for the dark and darker themes (I've been compiling it without the fixes partial the whole time). No luck with LibreOffice outside of that one fix. Source files are now on GitHub. Please don't laugh at my disorganization.

V1.7.4 3 months ago

Light and Mixed shell variants (there are too much to explain what's different now) GTK3 clean up, assets have been tidied up yet again and a couple button subtypes had some inherited-by-accident rules (you might have noticed the radio and checkboxes looking off along with the color swatch just looking plain weird).
