Description:

A GNOME-Shell - Light and Dark Mode Theme - Based on the Official Color Pallet Created by Ethan Schoonover.

Solarized Deluxe Icons, Folders, and Animated Cursors are available here at:
https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1312499/

Solarized Matching GTK Light & Dark Themes are available here at:
https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1309911/

Solarized Light and Dark Modes - as originally created by Ethan Schoonover - are the highly valued color schemes for code editors and terminal emulators. These GNOME-Shell dark-mode-schemes strictly adhere to Ethan Schoonover's original color scheme, which has been published for many major applications, with some including the scheme pre-installed. Coders and GUI users, alike, know that - once you try Solarized-Dark - it is hard to go back to anything else.

In His Own Words:

"Solarized is a sixteen color palette (eight monotones, eight accent colors) designed for use with terminal and gui applications. It has several unique properties. I designed this colorscheme with both precise CIELAB lightness relationships and a refined set of hues based on fixed color wheel relationships. It has been tested extensively in real world use on color calibrated displays (as well as uncalibrated/intentionally miscalibrated displays) and in a variety of lighting conditions." https://ethanschoonover.com/solarized/

The GNOME-Shell theme represents a careful blending of modernized Numix elements, in tandem with those of minimalist artist Rafa Capoci, theme designer Wojciech Kalinowski, and full-stack web-developer/themer Pavel Agarkov, with an overlay of the original standard Solarized theming created by Ethan Schoonover.


Manual Installation Is Easy:

1) Extract the "tar.xz" file into your "~/.themes/" folder - to install for current user only - or into the "/usr/share/themes/" folder - for the theme to be applied globally. 2) Use the GNOME Tweak Tool or an equivalent app to enable it for your desktop.

Logging out and then logging back in may be necessary on some operating systems to fully implement themes.

I have a problem with the Solarized-Dark Gnome-Shell theme: https://imgur.com/2ZmtuF6 I can't read the text, because the text is too dark.

(I don't have this problem with the Light shell version.)

This is what it looks like, right now, on a GNOME tester machine:

I also noticed you put up this rating and review:

I'm not sure why your version of GNOME is doing that, but if you like the the full theme version of the shell, you can take the entire gnome-shell folder out of the theme's main folder and it will be just the shell at that point. Let me know, and thanks for the 10!

Same problem when I'm using the shell theme from the full theme package (Solarized-Dark-GTK), GTK windows looking good, but shell doesn't: https://imgur.com/UrWowMA (I also just noticed the notification box: looks like it's mixing dark and light theme?)

thx for your help!

I even tried it with a new fresh user account to be sure that I don't have any old conflicting configs.

Okay, I'll put my best member on it asap, and see if we can figure out what is happening on your box versus ours. Solarized is an important theme to a lot of people.

It hasn't been updated in a month, so perhaps we're just dealing with a match up challenge vis-a-vis your distro's 3.34.1. The tester machine, here, is openSUSE, what is yours, so we can go from there?

Good deal, Give us a day or so. Keep your notifications on, or check back in a day (or two at the most). If it is isolated to Ubuntu: 19.10, then a file will be added for that version of the distro. We've had to do that before, in similar situations. Thank you for the feedback, and use of the theme, foobar.

The below comment doesn't make sense, it doesn't' say anything except that it is from a jealous competitor posing to be someone else, or their associate. I am proud to be an on-and-off again developer for rtl88-themes, and this obviously fabricated comment doesn't match what we see here, with the rest of the comments, or the hard work I have personally put into making so many details of this theme shine. The competitor never even mentioned whether the comment was for light or dark mode, or what icons they were supposedly using. Sad this is how some people must contribute to our shared world.

I agree! Solarized really isn't my thing, but I saw this comment running up the side of the feed, and had to install and see... for what it is worth, the both light & dark look perfect. I love how the whitish text text jumps out from the orange when you scroll on that light them. Yup, I use a lot of rtl88's dark themes, he/she keeps them updated and tight for me.
