Gnome-PRO II

Older versions:

Gnome-PRO +
Gnome-PRO-Lighterblue
Gnome-PRO-Lighterblue +
Gnome-PRO-Dark

Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX.

The NEW VERSION Gnome-PRO II is Gnome 3.26 ready, with crispier fonts, new hover-effects and new check- and radio-items, and the use of gradient-colors (even on GTK2-menu's), and reduced clutter on the headerbar (simple headerbar buttons) makes this new version a more serene, comfortable layout for your daily jobs.

IMPORTANT: This theme works best with 'Myriad Set Pro Semibold'. Just google it, and make sure you ONLY install the 'semibold' -version, not the complete 'family', because then, your system will use the regular version instead of the semibold version of Myriad Set Pro. The semibold-version (here in my set-up at 12pt) is easier on the eyes.

The older versions of Gnome-PRO remain available.

Requirements

First, This theme only works in the gnome-desktop, with GTK 3.20 -GTK 3.26, and also in Ubuntu 17.10+

Next, buttons should be on the right side. If they are not: here is the terminal-code:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"
In Gnome 3.26, the Tweak-tool makes it easier to change the button-position. The above commands are then no longer necessary.

When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines":

IMPORTANT:

The latest gnome-distributions use Wayland (such as Ubuntu 17.10) instead of Xorg as the default compositor. This has the annoying problem that you can not install Synaptic Package Manager ( or at least it just does not show up, if you have). Why would I need Synaptic Package Manager? Because Ubuntu 17.10 does not support GTK2- applications properly, resulting in weird theming ). And you need some packages that are not present in the default 'Ubuntu Software'. How to solve this?

1. If you are in Ubuntu 17.10: log out, then, when you log back in under your username you have a settings-icon, choose Xorg in the drop-down list. This starts your session using Xorg as the compositor.
2. Open up Ubuntu Software and install Synaptic Package Manager.
3. When finished, fire up Synaptic Package Manager and install gtk2-engines-pixbuf (and its dependencies).
4. When finished, restart your computer.

This results in GTK 2 applications such as 'The Gimp' and 'Inkscape' to be themed properly.

There is an easier way to handle this: sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf is the terminal command.

On the subject: I personally use Xorg as the compositor because the color-picker (an important tool for graphical applications) does not work under Wayland. And I get to use the Synaptic Package Manager, which is (in my opinion ) better than the default Ubuntu Software.

- The gnome-themes-standard package,
- The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


How to install:

Download the theme you want (Gnome-PRO, Gnome-PRO+, or Gnome-PRO-LighterBlue, or Gnome PRO-Dark))

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK-theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

um, i still like the older gnome-pro-lighterblue version better. the gradients give it a 3D feel that IMO doesn't seem to match with the rest of the theme

Well pesgo. The problem is not theme-related. The problem is that Synaptic Package manager is a root-application. Which do not follow the theme, because there is any in the root! So what you need to is this:
1. Make sure you have a .font, a .icons and a .themes folder in your home folder
2. We need to make symbolic links to these file in the root directory with these terminal commands :

sudo ln -s /home/[username]/.themes /root/.themes

sudo ln -s /home/[username]/.icons /root/.icons

sudo ln -s /home/[username]/.fonts /root/.fonts

And replace the username (and its brackets) with you home folder name. Then execute them one by one.
3. Restart your computer; et voila all is solved...
If, for some reason, it didn't work check your root folder with this terminal command: sudo nautilus, this wil open a root-nautilus window. Look in the file-system that pops up for thr root-folder. If the three files (.fonts/.icons/;themes) are there? then you have done you job right and everything should work if you restart

Hi Guys,

First of all thanks a lot for your support and your patience

sorry if I use this channel to answer but it seems to me the easiest to understand if it is a misunderstanding.

In fact I want to attach an image of the Synaptic screen to make it clear what I mean (different gray shades in the buttons part, on the left). It may be that at the end this is its normal appearance?

I followed all the instructions you have given me and nothing has changed. I had already applied it to the existing folders (only .icons and .themes).

I can only say that the .fonts folder was not present in my home (now it is created but is empty). Now all 3 folders are present and linked to the root folder.

Even copying the theme into the usr / share / themes folder, it does not change anything in Synaptic's appearance.

I'm Italian, sorry for my poor English

thanks again for the support.

The screenshot sows that Synaptic Package manager uses the usual toolbar- background, but then it stops when there are no more buttons to show. From then on, the original default background appears , which uses this gradient:
background-image:linear-gradient(to bottom left,rgba(235,240,244,1),rgba(221,227,232,1),rgba(221,227,232,1),rgba(238,244,246,1)); }
Which is a four-color-gradient. That moves from the right top to the left bottom of the area. So colors can different within the same background-area

Sorry but I'm not so skilled to understand it well
Does this mean that it is the normal aspect that you have to meet?
Or is it possible to match the color gradient even in the area where there are no buttons?
Thanks again for the support

Please, would it be possible to correct the title color of windows in dark applications?

Problem screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/vtTiymn.jpg

In previous versions this code solved the problem:

headerbar .title, .titlebar:not(headerbar) .title {
color: rgba(175, 175, 175, 1); // any light color
}

But in II version this doesn't works.

I found solution!

In file gtk-dark.css it's necessary to change the selector:
headerbar .title, .titlebar:not(headerbar) .title { }

Include this code into selector, reload Gnome Shell (alt + f2 + r) and will work!

headerbar .title, .titlebar:not(headerbar) .title {
color: rgba(175, 175, 175, 1.00);
text-shadow: none;
padding-left: 12px;
padding-right: 12px;}

Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/MlN783H.png

Or replace this gtk-dark.css for this: https://ufile.io/s1uv8

Is it possible to include the fix in future releases?

All your themes are wonderful! It would be wonderful to add gnome-pro with dark headerbars. The color you use in the dark variant is great, I think it would go well with the rest of the bright theme.
