Description:

After many years of inactivity the Victory theme is back and recreated/re-imagined as a bright, flat, and minimalist theme. This theme was made using, and made primarily for, Xubuntu and Lubuntu 16.04, 16.10, and 17.04, but should work fine with any XFCE/LXDE-based distro. Gtk3 elements should work on Gtk 3.18 (Ubuntu 16.04) and above. Even though a Gtk3 theme is provided, I have not been able to test it on Gnome3, so please report issues. I've also included variant borders and styles for Openbox and XFWM. Again,lease let me know if anyone has any problems, thoughts, etc.

Anyway, let me know what's good or bad, or if you have any problems or anything. Thanks again everyone... I really appreciate all the feedback, votes, and comments!

I have also recently set up Patreon and Liberapay pages for those interested in supporting my work:

Thanks!

I'm really not sure why this would happen. Can you change the wallpaper after the theme is applied? And does it happen with any other themes that you know of? I don't use Cinnamon so maybe you could ask on the Mint forums because I really don't know how to troubleshoot that. If you find any more info let me know, meanwhile I'll take a look at it next time I work on it. Thanks!

Hi, thanks for answering.
After applying the theme I can not change the wallpaper, simply the screen goes blank, and this problem has not come up with any other theme

Hey, I updated the theme a bit. The variants now having matching Gtk3 versions in apps that use the Menubar (File, View, etc). And I'll work on that Button issue you posted for 17.10. Thanks for the comments!

I installed your theme and so far it's my favorite except for this bug i encountered in menus, also happens in the file browser menu. See pic https://imgur.com/a/ngADy I already tried adding the lines to gtk-widgets.css like you suggestedd below

Nevermind, I fixed it. I was missing the necessary engine.

Was it the Murrine engine? I should add that to the description I guess. Thanks!

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.

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!

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:

Quote:
GtkWindow
{
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.
