Description:

Yaru-Colors is a theme project to bringt different colors to Ubuntu's awesome Yaru theme.





Testers needed:
Please check my github! I added support for gdm3 theming. It's a bit complicated as it seems. I tested it under Ubuntu 20.10.
It would be nice if y'all check if it works for you, as well...especially on different distributions and Ubuntu versions!

Update 20.10.1:
- Updated every theme to 20.10!
- Added new Wallpapers made by @fer-moreira (They're awesome, thanks a lot!)
- Icons and Cursors are unchanged

Update 20.04.6:
- New color added as user suggestion: Cinnamon - slightly change to Orange, based on Ubuntu Cinnamon Remx
- Tried to add snap support...it's very time consuming so I'm sorry to say, that it'll take a bit longer (help needed / wanted if someone knows how to snap...)
- Last update with 20.04 base. 20.10 is already in the works!
EDIT: - Now with snap support!

Update 20.04.5:
Sorry! I've messed it up again! If you have purple switches in gnome shell, please redownload 20.04.5! I've fixed it...finally and hopefully!
- Added two new colors: Amber and Teal - based on Pop_OS! and Manjaro!
- Rewritten the installer from scratch. It's way shorter and should be easier to use! If there are any issues, please notify me!
- No updated needed if you're using the old colors. They're the same, I've just changed the version number.

Update 20.04.4:
- Finally fixed broken symlinks (this time really.......hopefully). Sorry!

Update 20.04.3:
- Fixed purple colored switches in gnome-shell (like Do-Not-Disturb)
- Fixed broken / dead symlinks for many icons. NOTE: Yaru-Colors icons inherit to stock Yaru! This saves space since I just modified a handful of files. If you're not running Ubuntu (20.04), please download the icons from Yaru's git or via package manager if possible.

Update 20.04.2:
- Modified install and uninstall scripts:
- No installation of Gnome-Shell to /usr/ anymore
- Linking files from /home/ to /usr/ when running install.sh as root for better compatibility
- Reduced icon size by removing unneeded icons, inherit icon theme is set to stock Yaru

-- BIG UPDATE --
Update 20.04.1:
- Added support for Ubuntu 20.04 by using Yaru 20.04 source
- Changed version numbers
- Redone every theme
- NEW icons!!
- NEW Color: Orange
- Changed purple color
- NEW: Cursors!!
- NEW: Unity support (brought by Yaru)
NOTE: The next update will contain less icons to save space and time (and maybe spacetime as well). The next icons packs will have stock Yaru as inherit icon pack! Coming Soon™
PLEASE NOTE: Deepblue is missing! It'll be added, soon!

Special thanks to the developers of Yaru!
(https://github.com/ubuntu/yaru

Yaru-Colors themes conataing following:
- GTK 2 / 3 themes
- Gnome-Shell themes
- Yaru icons (just the necessary ones, inherit is set to stock Yaru)
- Unity theme
- Recolored cursors
- Ubuntu-Dock theme (indicators)

Following changes are made by me:
- GTK2, GTK3+ and Gnome-Shell assets and css files are changed
- For the icon pack I just recolored the folder icons and a few others. The icon theme will use Yaru as inherit theme, which means that my packs just contain recolored icons!
- Recolored the cursors to fit to each color
- Unity assets recolored
- The dock got recolored app running indicators, which are changed by script, not by file

I tried to make the installation as easy as possible.
Therefore I created an installation script called install.sh. (Tutorial below)

The installer will do a backup if something needs to be overwritten (only Ubuntu 18.10+).
It will guide you through everything and allows you to choose what you want to install.


General Information:

Please visit the GitHub page for more screenshots of every theme, issues or suggestions.

Known issues:
Snap apps aren't themed. I don't know if I will add this feature in the future, for now it doesn't work. If someone knows how to get my themes to work, please send me an email!
Most used example: Ubuntu Software
Tiny workaround: Use gtk+ inspector to change the default theme of a snap app to Yaru, this will fix the missing background, when the themes are installed as root (linked to /usr/share/themes)

Tutorial

Installation with script:
1. Run the installer with './install.sh'
2. Follow the installer
Optional:
3. Set your themes with gnome-tweak-tool
4. For gnome-shell you need the User Themes Extension for Gnome-Shell
5. To change the dock indicators, simply run the dock-indicators.sh in src
6. Done

FIY: Because of an older bug in the User Themes extension, on some systems changing the shell theme with a command doesn't work. I've added a fix to this (see Github or the installer for source). This will need root privileges, but the script will ask for this ;)

Removal with script:
1. Rund the uninstaller with './uninstall.sh'
--- if you ran the installer as root, please run this as root, as well.
2. Follow the script
3. Done

Manual install:
1. Copy your desired theme into your desired theme directory (example '/usr/share/themes' or '~/.local/share/themes')
2. Copy you desired icon pack into your desired theme directory (example '/usr/share/icons' or '~/.icons')
4. Enable your themes with gsettings commands or with gnome-tweak-tool
5. To change the dock indicator color (Ubuntu's Dash-To-Dock only), find the hex code for your desired color in the list below and enter following two commands (replace HEXCODE with your color code including #):
'gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock custom-theme-running-dots-color 'HEXCODE' 2> /dev/null'
'gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock custom-theme-running-dots-border-color 'HEXCODE' 2> /dev/null'
(take the color codes from GitHub or do it with the script from there, it'll do it for you...)

Snap install:
1. Install snap package with snap install yaru-colors (TBR)
2. Add the themes to the snap theme list by following 3 commands:
for i in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:gtk-3-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect $i yaru-colors:gtk-3-themes; done

for i in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:gtk-2-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect $i yaru-colors:gtk-2-themes; done

for i in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:icon-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect $i yaru-colors:icon-themes; done

3. Reboot or re-login

KNOWN BUGS
Snap applications, like Ubuntu Software, don't support third party themes. Instead they're using their own theme resource. On Ubuntu, the snap themes are including stock Yaru.
Fix: see above - snap support is out!

Have fun with it!
For any suggestions send me a message here or on Reddit /u/jannomag

It's fixed now, I updated all files here and also the repo (compiling script)

Please take a look in Yaru's source: https://github.com/ubuntu/yaru/blob/master/gtk/src/dark/gtk-2.0/main.rc
It seems that these images are supposed to be missing. Look at lines 403-405:
"
# QGtkStyle (used for Qt apps) *always* assumes scrollbars have
# arrows, so configure these here. Gtk2 apps will atually ignore
# this. "

Also take a look inside of the assets.txt which is the file index for compiling the png's. There are no scrollbar-arrow-[*].png so they can't be in my theme since I'm using this as source. I don't know why they're missing, I opened an issue on Yaru's source git for this.

For now, your solution is the best for everyone who needs this, since it's just Qt related. I'll update Yaru-Colors when I've an answer from Yaru developers.

Thanks, I'll fix this and comment again when done. It's not the install script, it seems that these images are missing when compiling the png from the source svg.

I needed a theme for Budgie. Yaru was to close to what you get with Ubuntu. Yaru Colors is the answer for me. Currently my favorite is purple. Thanks and keep the good work!

Are you using budgie 10.5? some animations (like raven's) don't work.

Yes. I'm on atest Budgie and on Solus. Raven seems to work fine for me but I generaly have disabled animations. Which animations do you have in mind? I didn't noticed anything wrong about them? Maybe I could recreate if I'll now which you have in mind. Also knowing if animations works with stock Yaru will be helpful for theme developer.

Do they work with stock Yaru?

They seem to not work with stock Yaru as well. There are some other issues which I spotted. E.g. no closing icon for Disks, graphical glitch when opening Settings > Devices > Mouse & Touchpad. This freezes the setting and prevents to choose anything or closing the window (settings can be closed via right click on icon in panel and then closing it). For now you could use this theme with Budgie but it's not free from issues. No surprise. It's meant for Gnome. Anyway Yaru is nice. Yaru Colors as well. Keep the good work!

Hi there, just wanted to let you know that while your latest release works fine overall, it seems that all of the GTK2 variants default to Aqua for some reason.

Hi!

first of all, I wanna say I really like this idea of a "colored" Yaru theme.
There is only something that I don't like (It's related to the original Yaru theme though)

What do you think of (since this is a modified version) making progress bars, checkboxs, scrollbars, etc respect the theme "accent color"?

It just seems a little odd choosing -lets say- the red version and getting blue sliders :)

I don't know if anyone who uses this theme (or even you) would agree with me, but I just wanted to add this into consideration.

Greetings!

Reworked everything 8 months ago

- New icons!
- New base (Yaru 20.04)
- New Color (Orange)
- Purple changed
- Unity support
- Cursors added!

Version 2.0 1 year ago

Yaru got updated with a new light theme, so I recreated Yaru-Colors based on Yaru' 19.10.2 source!
Icons and screenshots are the same - I'll add new screenshots, when I've the time for this.
The install and uninstall scripts are also unchanged!

Maybe I'll add a new theme, called "Classic" or so, with dark title bare as in 1.0 and older Yaru versions...

This is a great theme, I use it on multiple distros. I do want to report that on Fedora 33 for some reason it is failing to apply to the Geary app. The other default themes work. I just wanted to make you aware. Thanks for the great theme.

Great work, thanks a lot for sharing it with us. Anyway I don't use it yet on my Ubuntu 19.04 because of incompatibility with my very favorite file manager (Double Commander aka. doublecmd-gtk, installed through apt, not by snap or appimage). I don't understand what makes a dark theme work with this application or not but I see that Starlabs and Adwaita-dark are theming it perfectly. I don't know the difference with a theme like yours nor which files should be included or modified, sorry to be of no help. Do you think that this issue with Double Commander could be fixed? I would be glad to use this theme as I really like it. Here's a concrete example: Yaru Blue Dark > https://i.imgur.com/xzdvKDt.png StarLabs Dark > https://i.imgur.com/FGDgJHI.png Yaru Dark (the one included by default with the latest Ubuntu release) > https://i.imgur.com/TYmRY9r.png Packages installed (all from the official Ubuntu repositories): gtk2-engines gtk2-engines-pixbuf gtk2-engines-murrine murrine-themes doublecmd-common doublecmd-gtk doublecmd-help-en doublecmd-plugins I've posted a message on application's forum to get more informations about the files to customize but nobody answered for now > https://doublecmd.sourceforge.io/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5769
