Description:

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.

There's a little issue. Can't see the "down arrow" of the search box of nautilus after click it. I think you forgot to style that down arrow when it's active.

This is a great theme! I know this is by design for obvious reasons, but I wish there was a version without that hideous glaring orange color.

How to install this theme?
(I already downloaded the OpenDesktop.org app)

Report

You don't need an app. To install the theme, you download the .tar.gz file from the Files tab above, extract the United Theme folder, then open a terminal inside that folder and use the command 'sudo cp -r United* /usr/share/themes/' to copy all the variants (United Dark, United Light, etc) to the proper location.

After that is done, you open your theme selector (Gnome Tweak Tool) and change the GTK+ theme and Shell theme to United. You may need to go to the extensions tab in Gnome Tweak Tool and enable the User themes extension if you can't change your Shell theme.

Unfortunately I've discovered a major problem with the latest version (v1.7.4 as of this writing) that only manifests with LibreOffice: http://pix.toile-libre.org/upload/original/1492646893.png

In short, LibreOffice buttons don't provide any visual feedback that they've been pressed or selected.

I still have v1.2 of the theme installed and the problem doesn't manifest there, but I don't have any version after 1.2 installed except 1.7.4, so I'm not sure when exactly it became an issue. It may have been 1.3, when the major switch was made, if I remember correctly.

Thanks for letting me know. A fix for that won't come anytime soon since I'll be busy for the next couple of days but this seems to be a temporary fix (but there are hiccups: the highlighted text is a bit hard to read) for a common problem:

sudo nano /etc/profile.d/libreoffice.sh
type in: export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk
Log out and log back in and the button issue (at least) should be fixed. Sorry.

Having some minor theming issues in Nemo file manager, the address location and sorting buttons are just the orange background color and aren't identifiable.

Can you send a screenshot? On my end the address text is white against a white background. I haven't been testing Nemo but quick fix until I can get around to fixing that:

.nemo-window .primary-toolbar .text-button{
color: #E95420;
}

.nemo-window .primary-toolbar .text-button image{
padding: 0 7px 0 0;}
}

I also messed up the upload earlier so maybe you could try redownloading it.

Yeah, I mistyped earlier, you're right on the text. The sort buttons are the solid color. As are the weather and sound icons on the top bar. Screenshots here: http://imgur.com/a/ra4LR

This is my favourite theme. It's absolutely beautiful. I have been wondering, however, if there is a way for me to make the top bar shift from transparent to white when a window is maximized?

Report

globalmenuwhen

5 months ago

That'll require some tinkering. You'll need to enable and go into the Dynamic Panel Transparency extension's settings:

Under Foreground: enable custom text colouring. Tick "Use when a window is maximized."

Set Primary Colour to #FFFFFF and Secondary Colour to #606060. Now click "Background" and tick "Enable custom panel color" and change panel colour to #F4F4F4.

Now after you do this the app menu icon will be a bit screwy if you have it on so you'll need to go into the gnome-shell.css file, look for ".app-menu-icon" and underneath that there should be a line with "color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7;", change that to "color: #606060;"

Hi, thank you for your work, I can only find two issues with v1.5: http://imgur.com/DnptvqJ

The hard to read text problem is still present in the Preferences dialog of gnome-terminal (white text on white background). And, if you look in the top right of LibreOffice, the two Xs look strange. Don't sweat the second problem though... LibreOffice always looks at least somewhat bad with every custom theme I've used.

Report

I've never actually used LibreOffice. Is that close button supposed to be there? Either way, I've fixed both of those issues.

Report

Thank you!

The second X button seems to appear when only one LibreOffice window is open, at least on Ubuntu 17.04. When I open a second LibreOffice window, the second X button disappears. The styling still looks a bit strange, but I don't care, LibreOffice never looks good.

V2.1.3 3 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 3 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 3 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 4 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 4 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 4 months ago

Bug fixes and coherency improvements.

V1.8 4 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 5 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 5 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).

An almost perfect theme, if you ask me! Very stylish and clean. I especially like the wide, but fitting use of transparency. BUT: Why on earth gray fonts on the desktop (I enabled files on desktop in Tweak Tool)? I can (barely) tolerate them in the Nautilus sidebar, but gray fonts on the desktop hurt my eyes. The default white would be great here.
