Description:

This theme merely adjusts Aurora Nuevo Flat by Bolimage so that it fully supports the Budgie desktop, as well as applets provided in Ubuntu Budgie.

I just made a bunch of Budgie-related adjustments.

By default, Aurora Nuevo doesn't work well with Budgie panel and some applets, which have inconsistent size or color.

This theme strives to fix such issues, drawing on code from the Materia and Pocillo themes to provide a clean and well-functioning Budgie integration.

**Additions to Aurora Nuevo Flat**

Here is the changelog as compared to the base version of Aurora Nuevo Flat:

-Budgie panel's background is colored as per the accent color (Blue, Green, Grey, Orange, Red or Violet) in use.

-each color has two variants, Light and Dark, which affect the color (black or white) of panel items as well as text in headerbars, titlebars and menubars. When using pastel background colors, it is unclear whether text should be dark or light-colored to maximized legibility and minimize eye-strain. So, I provide both options for the user to choose.

-the panel now supports transparency and should respond to the corresponding Budgie setting. Beware, though, when using dark panel items on a transparent panel: with a dark wallpaper, panel items may not be legible at all.

-the panel now supports border shadows and should respond to the corresponding Budgie setting.

-most applets provided with Ubuntu Budgie should now be properly integrated into the panel. In particular, Global Menu and Pixel Saver should be cleanly integrated, legible and good-looking (toggle "use theme styling" to "on" for Pixel Saver). Raven Trigger no longer prevents the panel from being downsized.

-the color of menu bars has been changed to the chosen accent color. This helps with supporting Global Menu integration and, as a by-product, also has the user see more of their chosen accent color in Firefox (when setting theme to system default in Firefox, the tab bar is colored following GTK menu bars).

**Installation**

Simply extract Aurora-Nuevo-Flat-* folders to ~/.themes for user-only installation, or to /usr/share/themes for system-wide installation. Then, use Budgie Desktop Settings to set your theme ("Style" entry then "Widgets" drop menu).

If using a dark panel items variant, you may want to change the icon of Budgie Menu to something dark. To that end, the archive provides ubuntu-budgie-app-launcher-dark.svg which is simply Ubuntu Budgie's menu icon filled with black. Any dark icon could work, of course.

Warning: when installing in ~/.themes for a non-sudo user, there appears to be a permission issue which causes Evince (and possibly other applications) not to be able to grab theme data, and consequently default to a transparent GUI. The only workaround I've found so far is a system-wide install (in /usr/themes).

**Special Thanks**

This theme is 99% derived from Bolimage's awesome work on Aurora Nuevo. As for Budgie ajustments, they would not have been possible were it not for the templates provided by nana-4 and the Ubuntu Budgie team in Materia and Pocillo.

App Indicator applet (e.g. VLC icon near the notification area) should no longer cause the panel to be larger than set by the user, and consequently to overlap window borders.
Adjusted panel transparency for dark-font themes.
Global Menu and Pixel Saver now use bold fonts, for improved legibility.
A couple minor color adjustments.

I did a very tiny proportion of the overall amount of work.
