Description:

Victory is a bright, flat, and minimalist theme. This theme was made using, and primarily for use on, Xubuntu and Lubuntu 16.04 thru 18.04, 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 tested it on Gnome3, so please report issues. As of the 18.07 release, Gtk3 theming has become the primary focus, and as of this release, all Gtk3 elements should be themed correctly. I've also included variant borders and styles for Openbox and XFWM, as well as a notification theme for XFCE. Again, please let me know if anyone has any problems, thoughts, constructive criticisms, etc.

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, and any contributions are greatly appreciated:

++ Installing ++

To install, downloaded the tar.gz, open it and extract the folder of your preferred theme into your ~/.themes folder (if your home directoy does not have a .themes folder, create one). Then open your desktops Appearance Manager to select the theme.

+ Appearance Managers

- XFCE: xfce4-appearance-settings (for Theme/Controls)
- XFCE: xfwm4-settings (for Window Border)

- LXDE: lxappearance (for Theme/Controls)
- LXDE/Openbox: obconf (for Window Border)

+ Theme Directory is located at /home/USERNAME/.themes



----------------------------------------------------------

++ Configure ++

You can modify the colors and change some styles in the /home/USERNAME/.themes/victory-gtk-theme/gtk-3.20/gtk.css file. Open that file and you can change the colors. At the bottom you can uncomment lines for various custom styles that will affect certain applications or parts of the theme (more styles to be added later). The picture for this theme is using Thunar, for example, with the thunar custom view line uncommented. This removes the back/forward/home buttons from thunar and makes the location bar take up all the space.


----------------------------------------------------------

++ Credits ++

In the first preview image I am using the Victory Icon Theme and the wallpaper Flow by tri5tian here on this site. Icons used in the second image (temporarily removed until I have time to re-add the color variants after the 18.07 release) include Boston icons, Arc icons, Papirus icons, Breeze icons.

In that picture I'm just using the default Victory Gtk Theme. I'm using Thunar. You can hide the menubar with Cltr+M or under View uncheck the Menubar. For the sidebar, you can right click on a title (Places, Devices, Network, etc) and select which icons to hide or show. Hope that helps!

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!

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.
