Description:

A Redmond style theme with a Win2k color scheme and explorer style toolbars. Now includes Plus! pack, Whisker menu support and better LibreOffice compatibility.

-To install: extract Redmond2K.tar.gz into your themes directory.

-Note: The following applets should be used for the gtk2 xfce4 panel to look correct with the frame hack:
Notification Area followed by Orage Panel Clock. Right click on the notification tray and select properties. Uncheck "show frame". (GTK2 or GTK3 panel)
GTK3 panel only: System tray followed by xfce4 clock applet. (make sure to uncheck "show frame" in notification area options.)

-To use the firefox theme (IE5_classic_firefox.tar.gz): create a directory named chrome inside of your firefox profile directory and extract the archive into the chrome directory. (ex ~/.mozilla/firefox/default-release/chrome).

-theme_builder.tar.gz: A theme generator script to compile the Redmond2K theme with custom colors.
(Make sure to install imagemagick or the script won't work)
-Edit theme.conf to set the desired colors.
-Run ./gen_theme.sh to compile and install the theme.


Known issues:
-There is a slight gap between the notification tray and orage clock tray.
-If you don't uncheck the "show frame" option for the notification tray the borders will be misaligned.
-LibreOffice: Scrollbar arrows do not match theme scrollbar arrows. I'm still actively troubleshooting this.
-LibreOffice: Some combobox text covers the combo button, currently working on some workarounds as LibreOffice ignores padding.

The theme builder was not working on my Xubuntu 18.04 (bash 4.4.20, grep (GNU grep) 3.1
). I tested 1.51 and some older version.
After some digging in gen_theme_new.sh I realized that there was a problem with ranges of characters used in grep regular expressions.
I had to change these:
orig: grep -o .*[Aa0-Zz9]
new: grep -o .*[A-Za-z0-9]
orig: grep -io [a0-f9]
new: grep -io [a-f0-9]
orig: grep -o [Aa0-Ff9].*
new: grep -o [A-Fa-f0-9].*
and now it works like a charm...
I checked couple of manuals and there is always used my version of multiple ranges so it is probably standard.

Great and thank you for all the work you do with this theme. I like the idea of theme generator very much, it is inspiring :-)

Btw, if you really want to complete the classic look, don't forget to include the color schemes of Rainy Day and Slate! I think there's one called Stormy Night or something, too. There are also the high contrast themes. I will legit donate if you can crop those bad boys up. You do awesome work!

Good call forgot about the default color schemes! All the Redmond theme variants now include the above. (I believe the stormy night one was called Storm).

10 It is like return home - with this theme I like my XFCE as in good old days, when design was not changed every now and then just to be changed. Thank you very much, it is great.

That sign indicates movable toolbar. Look here:

Only movable toolbar. Redmond2K theme does not respect that.

It's a hack to make the overall look to mimic the explorer bars from Win 98/ME. I was messing with the idea of having active movable toolbar be full opaque while making the unmovable ones be semi transparent but it didn't get far. I'm currently making the toolbar style selectable with the theme builder so you can choose between different toolbars styles such as popout(Raleigh type), classic seperator(Windows 95), inset(current style) and inset without inactive handles.

Now it's possible that everything is okay. Maybe you have something else in the plan. A generator for changing colors maybe.

Here is Raleigh theme for gtk3. Maybe you can make some improvements. Especially with the white menu bar from libreoffice. I do not know how to fix this.

Try this let me know if it works: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FNNkKFy0FWiXL22h69WWiTnWebUN-H2o/view . I may have found a workaround for the menu bar in Libre-Office.

One hack I used to make the lists have a white background was:
scrolledwindow.frame {
background-color: @theme_base_color; }
This didn't affect the Libre-Office menu bar and made any widget that scrolls have the same white background. Hopefully that helps as I'm using Arch linux so I don't have pamac app to experiment with.

Will take a look at it, I'm also having some issues with the menu bar in my themes it appears that Libre-Office is using the border settings from the ScrolledWindow widget.

Just tried commenting out all references in the css file to the scrolledwindow element and the menubar looked normal. Will see if there's some way to work around this since libre-office doesn't have it's own widget names I can specify like in most other apps.
