Description:

UPDATE: ---- Per Question in Comments below:
A user asked for a RED version of this theme. I have added Two Variants-- One is CSD
The other is for use alongside of gtk-3-nocsd. PLEASE ENSURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE CORRECT ONE. You will know if you need the -NOCSD file because gtk-3- is something you must install in order to use it.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Two New Files Added. BOTH INCLUDE CINNAMON DESKTOP THEME- Also includes Whiskermenu theme and Zorinmenulite theme.

UPDATE: Adjustments made in various places to create smoother, crisper, cleaner images ---ONLY ON THE NOCSD File---
UPDATE: NOCSD file now includes themed ZorinMenuLite for Zorin OS users.
UPDATE: Fixed Nemo rename not highlighting text.
UPDATE: Adjusted for a cleaner and smoother Toolbar. Visible in last two pictures.
--UPDATE--
Fix for icon text being offset on desktop on XFCE4:
In terminal, please run:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /desktop-icons/center-text -n -t bool -s false

Please Note: Apps menu is my own Modification of Whiskermenu and it is not included with theme. Currently, it pretty much only works on my machine because it is being held up with strings and duck tape by Python Script.--UPDATE-- I have now created Azenis WhiskerMenu Themes. Also, I have made some patches that can give an Aeznis Backdrop to ZorinMenuLite.

I have recently discovered PCMan's "gtk-nocsd" product. You can read here:
https://github.com/PCMan/gtk3-nocsd
It is available in repositories and can be installed from terminal.
What This Does: It disables gtkClientSideDecoration on apps that use it, allowing the Window Manager to do its job.
Given the current trend and the news that XFCE 4.16 will fully switch to CSD (Becoming like Gnome 3) and will remove XFWM4 (No more XFCE Window manager which is why many of us switched to XFCE desktop in the first place) - It is very important to let the developers know whether you disagree with this decision. (I have done so- Loudly.)

https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce/2019-October/036689.html
Currently, the developers do not seem to be listening. Rather, they feel they should explain to us, the users, why what they want for us (and themselves) is what we should want, too.
If you disagree with XFCE removing XFWM and replacing it with GNome 3 CSD, please use the links and Be Heard.
-----I have reformatted this theme to work with a desktop equipped with gtk-nocsd. This is available as a separate download package on this page. See last two images showing Nautilus and other GTK applications in this method.-----
If the -NOCSD Theme is applied to a desktop NOT equipped with gtk-nocsd, then the CSD apps WILL LOOK BROKEN. Please Be Sure to download and install the Correct File!-----

About three days before I posted this, I realized what AzenisEX looks like in all lower case letters. Hmmph...
Oh well...
I had originally hoped to have this ready by the tenth anniversary of Azenis Theme. I am sorry, gtk kicked my butt.
This is attempt number one at a system theme.
Please keep in mind: I am a classic car restoration mechanic. Nine months ago or so, I had never even heard of .css cascading Style Sheets. I had never heard of gtk. I was unhappily using Win-system and had been for many years.
This year, I joined the Linux crowd and I found the Azenis theme while customizing my Linux distro, fresh as fresh can be. I was disappointed to learn that it was long outdated and totally obsolete on modern linux distros. In short, I could not have the Azenis Theme.
The hell with that...!
So Here it is- Azenis EXtended. My aim was to go pretty much over the top, increasing depth, texture and feel.

What this includes: Icons set for AzenisEX; AzenisEX theme; Gnome Shell, XFCE xfwm window borders; fonts; wallpapers. Coming Soon: Cinnamon Desktop theme to compliment this pack.

You will notice right away that something looks odd about this new variant..
Gnome integrated the header and titlebars. This means that I had to "elevate" the header imagery to accommodate the buttons. In this sense, this is not so much mimicking the look of J.J. Yings Azenis as much as being Inspired by it to get creative.
I extended the buttons out to be larger and longer for Close, Minimize and Maximize. This is, like AzenisXFM, intended to make it harder to miss your target.
I themed the titlebuttons to "close the eyes" when inactive, much like my XFMi window borders listed. This makes it easier to tell which is your active window at a glance.
In these times, theming has moved away from images and toward linear gradients. That is a fine thing, in its place, and I used many but sometimes, an image is needed. However... In SOME cases, the developer of an app thinks in terms of Linear Gradients and designs something that can expand to huge sizes or tiny sizes without considering that a background image may be used.
For this theme, the pathbar button on the latest Thunar File Manager is a good example. It looks weird.
I'm not changing the buttons, sorry. It works over-all and I already tested it as a linear gradient and it looked 100% awful.
On the Gnome Shell: I included a basic bg image for the panel. However, if your screen size, resolution matches, you can switch to the same Panel background you see in the images by renaming the image files. Rename "panel.svg" to "panel-alt-1.svg" then rename "panel-alt.svg" to "panel.svg."
This is listed for XFCE desktop, but it should work on Cinnamon with gtk 3.22 or 3.24 (maybe more), Mate, Budgie, and even Gnome, more or less. I have noticed on some testing machines and distros (I tested on Zorin 15 gnome, MX linux XFCE, Linux Mint Tessa...) that occasionally some outside apps do not pick up the Client Side Decorations completely, picking up only the Titlebuttons without the background of the header.
Chrome has a fix for that by selecting "use system theme."
On 3.22 the titlebuttons appear small whereas on 3.24 they appear normal size on these CSD apps. I am working on that.
Azenis was designed by J.J.Ying to compete in WindowBlinds (Microsoft) and won the championship. It was ported to KDE by EZY and later to Gnome by JamesHardy88. Yantar created AzenisXF window borders for XFCE. Cursor ported by Kuduk and by Ahyangyi.
Images show GTK apps as well as XFWM managed apps.
To Install, extract "AzenisEX-darkGTK+" to /usr/share/themes

PLEASE report bugs, glitches, problems in the comments down below or email me at aravisian@protonmail.com. Criticism welcome, insults, derision, nudies, spam are unwelcome.
I hope you enjoy; and if you feel inspired, Get Creative. Modify - change the theme to suit you; add elements, take elements away, change the images, the colors, whatever floats your boat. Keep FOSS alive, keep customizing and expressing your individuality. I left MANY unused elements in the assets and borders folders that you can use.

Not wanting to sound demanding, but is there, or will there be a Red version? Thanks for the great blue version. ;)

BNSF88, I have added a RED variant of this theme in two formats: With or Without the use of gtk-3-nocsd. Please see the comments above in the listing.

You have great timing in asking this... I have learned a few more things about .css and have been eyeballing AzenisEX for some fixes and over-hauling.
I was already considering setting some time aside to do that, so making a red version is more motive to do so. Will update when ready.
