This theme was an attempt to allow everyone to pick a wide variety of colors and window borders. You can change the sidebar colors to any color you prefer, or if you prefer another window border, you can change the menubar color to make it blend together. This is my first time doing something like this, so there may be a lot of problems - Let me know. Thanks so much to everyone for help, feedback, comments, messages, voting, and fannage(?). Also, negative/critical feedback is just as (and sometimes more) important as any other. I don't know what down votes mean without it! Hope everyone enjoys. Thanks again!

How to Use

++ Colors ++

Several Gtk desktops have an Appearance Manager (see below), usually under the System menu, that allow you to customize a themes colors. If not, try this:

1. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
2. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
3. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

Each of these files contain the color settings in the top of the files. The important parts are:



Here's what each one of those changes:

selected_fg_color = Sidebar Text Color
selected_bg_color = Sidebar Background Color

tooltip_fg_color = File Menu Text Color
tooltip_bg_color = File Menu Background Color

Just change the #xxxxxx to a color you like! Save, and log out and back in to see the changes!

++ Options ++

This theme offers options for light panels, light menus, Nautilus elementary, the ability to try old Victory styles, and more.

At the bottom of the gtkrc or gtk.css file (mentioned in Steps 1 and 2 of the color section), you will find a section called Options. Comment or Uncomment lines (add or remove a # at the beginning of the line or the /* at the beginning and */ at the end) to try different options. After making changes, save the file. You will have to change to another theme for a moment. Go back to the Victory theme, and your changes should appear.

++ Installing ++

To install, extract the downloaded tar.gz. Put the folders (Victory, Victory for Top Panels) in your themes directory. Then open your desktops Appearance Manager to select the theme.

Log out and back in to make sure all changes take effect (especially in Gnome 3)

If you would like root apps (Synaptic/Package Manager/GParted) to use your theme, try the following. Step 2 may give an error that there was no such folder. If so, ignore it and move on to Step 4.

1.) Open terminal and type:
2.) sudo mv /root/.themes /root/.themesbackup
3.) Hit enter, then type:
4.) sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root
5.) Hit enter

2012.03.16b - Repackaged and reuploaded. Was having a problem with compression, causing the files for Cinnamon, Gnome-Shell, and a lot of other updates not to work. If you had any problems using this update, delete it, try it again, and let me know if anyone else is still having problems. Sorry!

2012.03.16 | c
Updated again on 2012-05-13.
This theme was created using Gtk3.2. They made some theme changes in Gtk3.4, so it doesn't look as intended. This update is a temporary fix for the biggest problem in Gtk3.4 - white text. Hopefully I can update the theme in the next month or so to address the rest of the problems.

Anyway, let me know what's good or bad, or if any apps aren't theming right or anything. Thanks again everyone... I really appreciate all the feedback and comments!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it! English was good, and thank you for the pictures!

I made this using Gnome 3.2, but Ubuntu 12.04 uses Gnome 3.4, and they made some theme changes. Here is a quick fix for the white text:

1.) Open /home/YOURNAME/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css
2.) Go to the very bottom, and add this:


color: @fg_color;

GtkWindow .cell:selected
color: @selected_fg_color;

After you add that to the bottom, save it, and log out and back in. It should work!

Let me know if you have any more problems! I've been working some on the theme, and hopefully will update it in the next month to fix a lot of these problems.

Hi, I made this theme using Gtk3.2, and they've made changes in Gtk3.4 which causes some problems with this theme.

I've updated the theme to fix the white text problem. Please delete the theme you downloaded, and try downloading this new update.

Please let me know if it fixes the white text problem!

 poor contrast

 by anonymousone on: Jun 23 2012

For the GTK2 theme, the menus seem to lack nice contrast: light grey on dark grey. Also Chromium seems to grab some blueish color for items the bookmarks bar. I think black would look better.
