Description:

DESATURIN

Desaturin is a completely desaturated version of my Telinkrin-theme. Shades of grey only.

Please, try and rate, comment. Any input or criticism is welcome.

There is an matching iconset avaliable : Suru-grey by Willscreel

Issues:

You will notice that resizing the sidebar in nautilus behaves strange. This is not a bug. Visually the sidebar will not change (to keep it alligned with the headerbar), but you will still see the pointer for resizing. For this to work properly, pleas keep the sidebar-size small as possible.


Requirements:

GTK+ 3.22 or later. Only standard (or Ubuntu) gnome-desktop is supported.
Disable gnome-extensions that reside on the headerbar because they mess up the headerbar-theming.

Two versions available for gnome 3.22+ and gnome 3.30+ respectively.

Because of the special theming, window-buttons-layout (min/max/close) are to be put at the right side (not left side!).

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

What to do:

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/.

Call me crazy but I decided to try running this one on my Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon lol!

It's not perfect in its elements but paired with the window borders from 'McOS Mint-Cinnamon', I can get something out of it. But the greyed out 'traffic buttons' of Desaturin are a beautiful feature, as well as the rest of the greys throughout.

Would you make a cinnamon-ised, mac-ified (like their 'Graphite' mode; and window sidebars not too dark), version from this base??????
