Description:

Flat, simple and clean :)

- Inside the theme folder there is a readme.txt file with some simple instructions (styles for nautilus, change selection color, metacity-buttons)

If you are using Firefox, I recommend for this theme to install the extension FXChrome. It is not completely flat but almost ;)
https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/fxchrome/?src=api

requires:
- GNOME 3.4.x or GNOME 3.6.x (does not work on other versions of gnome)
- GTK3 theme uses unico-engine
- GTK2 theme uses gtk2-engines-murrine

There are four themes:
FlatStudio: based on the color of my other theme MediterraneanNight

FlatStudioLight: found a mockup that I really liked and in which I based for FlatStudioLight, the mockup is of Tobias Bernard's (minimal GTK theme mockup), found in
http://tobiasbernard.com/floss/minimal-gtk-theme/

FlastudioGray: soft gray frame

FlatStudioDark: flat dark theme :)

Shell theme:
-----------
i found this shell theme:
Contrail by ~theRealPadster,
inspired by the same mokup that FlatStudioLight

I found a fix so I thought I'd share it here in case someone stumbles has the same issue.

I installed gtk-theme-config and changed the options under "Custom menu colors" to:

Menu background: dark grey
Menu text: white

Antes de nada me encanta tu tema, sinceramente es lo mejor que he visto nunca!!
Pero tengo una pequeña pega y es que usando FlatStudio los menús de la barra de unity son ilegibles. ¿Hay alguna manera de combinar esta versión con los menús negros de por ejemplo la versión Dark?

I don't know why, but when I try to apply my favourite theme (of course this is FlatStudio) "Ooops something has happened" =( I upgrated to gnome 3.6 and can no longer use it. Can anybody help me?

Hi trastes,
I'm having some problem within SpaceFM using your gtk3 theme (FlatStudioLight).
Here is a pic that should explain the problem http://db.tt/EaoMo0U9
Thanks for what you'll can do.

One more question: do you know if it's possible to somehow turn off shadows in metacity? I think this theme could look even better without them.

with unity at least previously it was possible, with gnome-shell think not (at least I do not know)

Great theme!

However, titlebars of my windows look weird. How can I fix it? http://i.imgur.com/fMMMIk0.png

If I run gnome-shell in a terminal, I get an error telling that the window manager couldn't find theme config, even though I'd copied everything straight from the package.

Okay, I've read through comments and apparently there's a bug in Gnome 3.6, so you have to copy themes to /usr/share/themes.

Thanks, everybody and thanks trastes for making this amazing theme!

I'm using Gnome 3.6 on Ubuntu Quantal and only Gray and normal FlatStudio work!

I'd love to try the dark and light one! I've re-downloaded the theme several times and triple checked where I'm installing it. It's being listed as a theme in the tweak tool but when I select any save for FlatStudio or 'F/S Gray', I'm not getting FlatStudio, rather I get the 1989 look.

Screen Snaps are Available here:
https://plus.google.com/photos/109138063320719069820/albums/5836903324147518577

Happy to send back any additional relevant data u can think of. P.S. I noticed in my own screen snap i got errors opening certain directories in the tree because I didn't run tree as root I'm performing other tests and gonna see I shoudln't maybe use this theme from my ~/.themes

Sorry for the double post I'm not sure how I accomplished that... the 1989 thing happens with any FS theme on my computer excepting FlatStudio Gray

If you have ubuntu 12.10 I do not understand that may be happening,
to function properly, the theme only needs to be installed-copied in "usr/share/themes"

check if correctly decompress all files in the theme,
compare the contents of folders for each theme (taken as reference the theme that works well)

You can also launch an app (eg gedit) from the terminal and see if you get errors (with one of the themes that do not work)

OK so I did these extra steps:

1) Re-downloaded your theme pack. There's no MD5 or anything (I'm not that anal anyway) so check this screen snap to validate size if you want.
(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-quAP1-ahQXU/UQIeK3LBL3I/AAAAAAAAAj8/OCpfYs1RnSI/s883/2-archive-properties.png)

2) Extracted without error those files. (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-crrWJwHY8BM/UQIeKzBqyWI/AAAAAAAAAkA/kmIK_aPOXmk/s796/3-errorless-extraction.png)

3) Removed the old FS files, re-copied the new ones, set my metacity and gtk back to Adwaita. (How boring and curvy :/) (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-vbcSFdqmuUI/UQIeLH2024I/AAAAAAAAAkM/7TTgeYtQglc/s755/4-reset-to-adwaita-reinstall-fs.png)

3) So I'm still getting the same results. Next I have some interesting terminal output for you!

[SCENARIO A]
Ran 'gnome-tweak-tool' from the terminal (a gtk app itself)
With Adwaita as the selected theme

[What Happened]
A whole bunch of warnings, which I think is likely normal. I've seen this before and on several systems I have so I feel like this isn't an issue (maybe I pre-fail already I dunno)

SO I keep going.

[SCENARIO B]
Re-run GTT, get the same warnings, then I select 'FlatStudioDark'

[What Happened]
Quote:
(gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-CRITICAL **: _gtk_css_section_to_string: assertion `section != NULL' failed

(gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: (null): Failed to import: Error opening file: Permission denied

(gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to parse /usr/share/themes/FlatStudioDark/gtk-3.0/settings.ini: Permission denied


[Attempt a fix!]
I run an ls on the offensive file and find that only the user group has read access, so I pull out an ace:
Quote:sudo chmod go+r /usr/share/themes/FlatStudioDark/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

I reset to Adwaita, kill the GTT, restart and re-select FSD. Same visual results (theme not visible and bare-fallback graphics for gtk2 app needs) but this time I got an error output exactly as before only missing that last 'Failed to parse' warning. Those first two warnings are still outputed (and don't really point me towards the problem.)

[Compare with something that works]
Now amid this mess FlatStudioGray works (thankfully) and this is the output I get from the terminal after I select it in the GTT.

Quote:
(gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-CRITICAL **: _gtk_css_section_to_string: assertion `section != NULL' failed

(gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: (null): Failed to import: Error opening file: Permission denied

(gnome-tweak-tool:21557): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to parse /usr/share/themes/FlatStudioGray/gtk-3.0/settings.ini: Permission denied


Same errors! So I haven't found the issue just yet. I did read the one post in some arch forums about a guy having issues with your theme that he fixed by updating some of his files, but I think mine are up to date. I'd be interested to know if any other FS users have had or are having this issue.

Please Download it and install it again from scratch, delete all folders and files of FlatStudio in usr/share/themes before installing the new.

(I uploaded version 1.03 although see 1.02 in this page)

I think I found the problem, in my opinion it is a permissions problem. I modified the permissions of all files and I think this is solved.

Try it and tell me how it went

YES

This seemed to do the trick! FlatStudioDark and Light still don't look quite right when looking at folders, but all themes skin gtk2 apps properly (ie chrome menuns, eclipse).

FlatStudio Looks Good (https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-eoENDmrREW8/UQKf6xBP2II/AAAAAAAAAlE/_lm0eGJodKM/s1048/fs-lookin-good.png)

Flat Light Still Doesn't Skin the folder 100% but its approaching that... (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-N3DvBgVGAuo/UQKf6-sFvXI/AAAAAAAAAlE/IXTQxhsQzRY/s1048/light-not-so-much.png)

Your themes don't cause any terminal output anymore, which is a good thing I guess, but it also gives us no additional info. I'm pretty happy having both FlatStudio and the Gray version fully working though so I'll stop bugging you but if you ever want any help testing and resolving those issues I'm happy to pitch in my efforts.

Thanks so much for your help changing those permissions!

First of all thanks a lot for this amazing theme. I really want to stick with it.

Sorry for the wait, I've been a few days of vacation :)

To help you, I need to know which version of FlaStudio downloaded and which version of Gnome you have.
I get the impression that one of the two does not have the correct version.

Thanks a lot for the reply. Asking me what version of FlatStudio I have grew me suspicious and I redownloaded the file after removing all the folders from /usr/shame/themes and all the configuration folders from ~/homefolder/.config/.

And it worked actually! Now all my gtk3 apps are working perfect. I am not using gnome btw, I am using openbox. Thank you so much for your help and for the amazing theme. I will update my archlinux post aswell in case someone wants the whole story

Yes openbox, but surely with GTK3 compatibility based on gnome 3.6, your screenshot was typical for gnome 3.6 with a theme of gnome 3.4

in any case, I'm glad you solved your problem :)
