Gnome-PRO

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.

The NEW VERSION Gnome-PRO is 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.

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 3.28, and also in Ubuntu 18.04+

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":
Make sure the GTK2-engines-pixbuff are installed:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf is the terminal command in Ubuntu.

Furthermore:

- The gnome-themes-standard package,
- The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


How to install:

Download the theme.

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK-theme. For systemwide use (or if you use SNAP-packages) make sure the theme resides in USR/SHARE/THEMES/

LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

Thanks for sharing your work, I like this theme a lot. Could you please make a lighter blue version of the new Pro+ ?

Is there any way to get same big shadows for all windows?

I know, applications that use the headerbar have bigger shadows, other use a titlebar, which is unfortunately shadowed differently. I have not found out yet, what I could do to change that.

This theme is good but I have some issue. When i set the theme with Tweak-tool background disappears and turns gray. Some stripes appear after mouse passage.
See here: https://morphisz.tumblr.com/image/164032789819
+ In nautilus, arrow buttons are very distant from the corner. Title bar is very big in some windows (any plain for a compact version?)
Arc-like buttons are not bad, but i really don't like the + maximize buttons, because remember me some old gtk themes.
Obviously these are just my opinions, thank you for sharing this theme. :-)

I've uploaded Gnome PRO+, a version with better (slightly heavier) font-rendering on the inteface-elements and GTK3-apps. This is experimental. I'm awaiting your reaction/comments on how this actually works on your screen. So please, download Gnome-PRO+, try it by comparing it with the normal version. Does it work for you?...

Works fine here. The heavier font-rendering is subtle and I like the result. BTW to avoid mantaining the lighter-blue version, you could place this little script in your archive so that users can replace the color if they want: sudo find . -name '*.*' -type f -exec sed -i 's/\#206AD9/\#4a85cb/' {} \;

nevermind, my script misses something (leafpad's color is not changing, also i saw you sometimes change #e7edf1 to rgba)...

It will never work, because GTK2.0 uses an image for the menu-items-hover

Ah, so the script could simply move those files from an "alt images" folder and overwrite them.

Really enjoying this theme. I hope to see more quality works by paulxfce when GTK+ 4 comes out https://blog.gtk.org/2017/08/07/progress-towards-gtk-4/

Don't get your hopes up to high... GTK4's roadmap is such that it would not be until GTK 4.6 or so, that a stable version is available (you can make a theme for GTK 4.0, only to find out that it is completely broken at GTK 4.1, and so on...) I would not hesitate trying the 'expected' blur-effect (which gives true translucency like Mac OS), something I've been waiting for.

If it wasn't for the close, minimize and maximize buttons I would totally use this... Too arc-ish to me.

I'm not really sure... I'm more into a minimalist style, but I don't think something minimalist would match the theme, sir. Anyway, it's a nice theme! :)

Overall I'm really liking this theme. My only issue is the nautilus top bar buttons are too far from the left, like they expect me to have min/max/close over there and are leaving space for that... It feels odd when other apps have buttons in that space.
