Description:

NEW: FULLY SCALABLE THEME: FLEXIUM

Made by PaulXFCE

This is a more enhanced gradually scalable GTK-version based on Nextwaita (a previous theme I made). And so deviates more and more way from the original new-adwaita theme. Subtle use a gradients makes this theme more modern and easy to the eyes. And yet provides the stability of the gnome-standard theme.

In Version 2, I've improved the check- and radiobuttons.

This theme is made for the gnome-desktop only. No support for other DE'S.

This theme is gnome 3.32-ready.

By using 'Gnome-Tweaks/Fonts/Scalable factor' you can change the scale of the interface:

Setting this scale to 0.98 (for example) will scale the theme down to a level suitable for low resolution screens.
Setting the scale to 1.30 (for example) will scale the theme up to a level suitable for high resolution-screens.

This theme will change its buttons, radio-and checkbuttons, sliders, switches, and general padding accordingly.
While gnome already tries to scale, this theme does it better. This is done by using (relative) REM in some places instead of (fixed) pixels.

Careful: Be careful in setting the scalable factor, as it can get you into serious trouble.

This theme works best within these parameters:

0.98 - 1.30

On 4K-resolution, it is better to adjust the Settings/Devices/Display/Scale to 200%.


NEW : Versions with transparent backdrop-windows. Not-active windows have a semi-transparent look!

- Flexium-Transparent (in 3 gnome-versions)

Only works in gnome-desktop, and on GTK3-applications. On dark-themed items, the transparency is not set.

I made two gnome-shell themes to match this theme or let me say i used the plata theme and passed the options to change the colors which all need to change was a couple small things but it matches really well. I have one with dark panel and one with light panel. This is the light panel shell theme.

Just wanna point out that while I haven't tried the scaling from Tweak Tool things look perfectly fine with 200% scaling via system display settings. I was a bit hesitant to try this theme due to the disclaimer about scaling in the description - So to those who are wondering this works just fine on Retina screens :-)

Same problem with radio buttons as with Nextwaita - they look pixelated. Otherwise it's even better than Nextwaita, thank you for the superb work :)

+I'm stunned. The best header bars and most detailed theme I have ever seen. I think my performance has doubled. Man you did it up right on this one. I am using the dark version.
