PRO-Dark


Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX, in a darker version.

Gnome 3.28 ready, with crispier fonts, new hover-effects and new check- and radio-items, and the use of gradient-colors (even on GTK2-menu's), and reduced clutter on the headerbar (simple headerbar buttons) makes this new version a more serene, comfortable layout for your daily jobs. I've also added rounded and transparent menu's and context-menu's on GTK3-compliant app's.

IMPORTANT: This theme works best with 'Myriad Set Pro Semibold'. Just google it, and make sure you ONLY install the 'semibold' -version, not the complete 'family', because then, your system will use the regular version instead of the semibold version of Myriad Set Pro. The semibold-version (here in my set-up at 12pt) is easier on the eyes.


Requirements

First, This theme only works in the gnome-desktop, with GTK 3.20 -GTK 3.26, and also in Ubuntu 17.10+

Next, buttons should be on the right side. If they are not: here is the terminal-code:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"
In Gnome 3.26, the Tweak-tool makes it easier to change the button-position. The above commands are then no longer necessary.

When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines"

GTK2 ENGINES REQUIREMENT

- GTK2 engine Murrine
- GTK2 engine Pixbuf

Fedora/RedHat distros:
yum install gtk-murrine-engine gtk2-engines

Ubuntu/Mint/Debian distros:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf

ArchLinux:
pacman -S gtk-engine-murrine gtk-engines

How to install:

Extract and put it into the themes directory i.e. ~/.themes/ or /usr/share/themes/ (create it if necessary).Then change the theme via distribution specific tool like Gnome tweak tool or Unity tweak tool, etc. (If you use Snap-packages instead of app's from the normal repositories than definitely put the theme to /usr/share/themes/.


How to install:

a couple theme phrasing errors showing for me. I was able to fix the first one listed but can see the problem in the .css for the second.

Really good theme, you have plan to release metacity theme?
This theme is good for cinnamon, but without metacity theme broken theme.

Ok, so I absolutely love all of your work!! You've got tons of talent, and creativity!! My question for you is, how do you get the icons on the side of your folder like that?? I've been wanting to ask for a while but didn't want to seem stupid for asking if it was something simple that I could have done myself already.

in the GTK3 file look into GTK.CSS line 13130 to 13280. It's a bit messy but examin it and you will find out

Great theme, only the titlebar gradient feels a bit too heavy... I prefer the flatter/lighter style used in Gnome-Pro: https://i.imgur.com/nzBQML5.png

This is a very impressive theme! If I may offer a suggestion, perhaps you could try reducing the amount of transparency in the menus as you can see the text behind them which can distract from reading the menu entries.

Else from my point of view , I will decrease the shadow of the context menu

Thanks, but gnome-shell is not really my thing. To awkward to theme.

I love this theme, thanks! It works in everything except for the Gimp. I'm wondering why since you mentioned it in your compatibility list above. I'm running Ubuntu 17.10 with Gnome 3.26.2

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

This is probably the answer; Standard there's no support for GTK2-Pixbuf-engine in 17.10. Why? Good question...

@PAULXFCE Can you do a version of this customized for Cinnamon? This looks amazing with Gnome 3, but for some reason it doesn't work so well in Cinnamon. (That may change with the next version of Cinnamon which will use more recent GTK.)

As long as Cinnamon is not GTK 3.20+ compatible....
