GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 63%


Downloads:  5315
Submitted:  Jul 18 2015
Updated:  2 days ago


Add-Waiter-Dark is a Gtk+ 2 clone of the Gtk+ 3 default theme Adwaita's dark version.

The upstream tarball of this theme also includes a 'symlink' to the dark version of Adwaita Gtk+ 3 theme, therefore it should be compatible with any Gtk+ 3 version newer than 3.14 (dunno if work with older gtk3 - please tell me if you've tested).

I've also made a xfwm4 and a Plank theme (links below).

Hope you guys enjoy the theme. I'd be very glad to hear any feedback. Also vote up if you like it.

- GNOME Themes Standard (package name is gnome-themes-standard in most distros)

Problems and solutions:
- Non-gtk apps (Qt, wxWidgets) don't look so good. Solution unknown. Maybe you'd want to launch 'em apps wit an other Gtk+ theme via another user. If you know how to launch a app wit another Gtk+ theme w/o another user, tell me on Stack Exchange: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/219222/how-to-launch-an-application-with-different-gtk-2-theme.
- Firefox and Thunderbird also look bad. Solution for Thunderird unknown (though switching to Claws or Geary might be a nice idea). For a better Firefox look, install GNOME 3 and GNOME Theme Tweak add-ons then set extensions.gnome-theme-tweak.dark-variant to 1.
- Chromium doesn't look good either. Try disable system wm and use a light theme (I'd suggest Adwaita for Chrome).
- Tabs on GVim look weird. Solution again unknown.

- The gtkrc and many others parts of the theme based on Bridge by ScionicSpectre: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php?content=151057
- Checkboxes and radios are from Adwaita Gtk+ 3 theme: https://git.gnome.org/browse/gtk+/tree/gtk/theme/Adwaita.
Also most of PNGs are made from gtk3 apps' screenshot.

Can You make a red version like #C80000 (200, 0, 0) instead blue elements?

I'll take a look a that, although I can't promise you anything. But if I do the red version, I would only make some hue changing (so the red'd be sth like #9C2321) 'cuz that be lots simpler for me. Is that ok?

Hi again. I won't make a red version, but a script to generate it, because I don't think I'll have enough time to make update every new minor gtk3 release. The school year has just began, so I think that script'll be added not so soon (I plan to add it next month after gtk 3.18'll be out). Sorry for making you to wait.
