This is a first (all-be-it thoroughly checked) draft of a theme on my way to a completely new theme for Ubuntu 18.04. The beauty is in the details, as I have spend a great deal of theme on finetuning it to work accross GTK-2 and GTK-3 applications.
So I hope you try before you judge !
- Support for dark theme.
- Shell theme to support.
The 'Extra'-file contains the font.
This theme is developed on gnome 3.20 and updated to 3.26
This only works on a gnome-desktop, no support for other desktop-environments.
It also works on Ubuntu 17.10
When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines":
- 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)
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?
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf is the terminal command, if you want the easy way.
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.
This results in GTK 2 applications such as 'The Gimp' and 'Inkscape' to be themed properly.
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. Next, under Wayland, Drop-down menus on GTK2-applications tend to remain visible even if you change applications, which is a very annoying bug. (at least in my set-up)
How to install:
First: Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take effect !
Second: This theme was set out to use Myriad Set Pro Semibold (11pt,scaling factor:1,00) as the interface-font. (See 'Extra'-file in the download-section.
Third: Orangini uses titlebuttons on the right-side:
To put the buttons to the left open a terminal:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"
In Gnome 3.26 gnome-tweak has a option to change the position of the titlebuttons, so the above steps are not necessary.
