Description:

A GTK, xfwm4, openbox-3, and GNOME-Shell - Light Mode Theme - Based on the Official Color Pallet Created by Ethan Schoonover.

Brought back to the GUI by popular demand, Solarized-Light - as originally created by Ethan Schoonover - is the highly valued color scheme for code editors and terminal emulators. This GTK and GNOME-Shell light-mode-scheme strictly adheres to Ethan Schoonover's original color scheme, which has been published for many major applications, with some including the scheme pre-installed. Coders and GUI users, alike, know that - once you try your preference of either Solarized-Dark or Solarized-Light - it is hard to go back to anything else.

In His Own Words:

"Solarized is a sixteen color palette (eight monotones, eight accent colors) designed for use with terminal and gui applications. It has several unique properties. I designed this colorscheme with both precise CIELAB lightness relationships and a refined set of hues based on fixed color wheel relationships. It has been tested extensively in real world use on color calibrated displays (as well as uncalibrated/intentionally miscalibrated displays) and in a variety of lighting conditions." https://ethanschoonover.com/solarized/

The GTK, xfwm4, openbox-3, and GNOME-Shell theme represents a careful blending of modernized Numix elements, in tandem with those of minimalist artist Rafa Capoci, icon designer Wojciech Kalinowski, and full-stack web-developer/themer Pavel Agarkov, with an overlay of the original standard Solarized theming created by Ethan Schoonover.

Chose from either the Complete-Desktop file or the three separate desktop, icons, or cursor files.

Manual Installation Is Easy:

For themes: 1) Extract the "tar.xz" file into your "~/.themes/" folder - to install for current user only - or into the "/usr/share/themes/" folder - for the theme to be applied globally. 2) Use the GNOME Tweak Tool or an equivalent app to enable it for your desktop.

If installing manually, make sure to install the dependency: "Murrine theme engine" if you do not already have it; and update your GTK+packages if you have not.

For icons: 1) Extract the "tar.xz" file into your "~/.icons/" folder - to install for current user only - or into the "/usr/share/icons/" folder - for the icons and folders to be applied globally. 2) Use the GNOME Tweak Tool or an equivalent app to enable them for your desktop.

For Cursors: 1) Same as with the icons, extract the "tar.xz" files into your "~/.icons/" folder - to install for current user only - or into the "/usr/share/icons/" folder - for the cursors to be applied globally. 2) Use the GNOME Tweak Tool or an equivalent app to enable them for your desktop.

Logging out and then logging back in may be necessary on some operating systems to fully implement themes, icons, and cursors.

9 I consider this more of a medium or mixed theme (between dark & light). Very nice for the eyes, thank you!

9 Great work! Looks nice and is very helpful for sensitivity to bright lights. There are a few places with light text on a light background (XFCE in debian 10). Once those minor niggles are fixed this is definitely a 10. I made some reg files for use in Wine so to make Wine apps match your solarized themes (among others). They are on my github (bealsc). Thanks for your works!

Excellent theme, looks really good. However, the red borders around the windows are not consistent for different apps. For example in Thunderbird the line is ~1px outside the actual window, which is very annoying. Any ideas how to fix this?

Text is white on the app grid, but dark when you use the search bar (as you can saw on the previous screenshot)

i love the look of this theme but for me on gnome shell 3.32.2 the panel font & icons are wrong. All white, date/time has shadow. I can screen shot if needed
