CAMEO-ALU-Dark

This is the a dark Cameo theme with aluminium headerbars.
It has all the benefits of my Gnome-Prof-theme (better scaling and better font-rendering)

Only 2 versions available:

- Cameo-Alu-Dark with a matching gnome-shell theme.
- Cameo-Alu-Dark with a blue selected color and matching shell-theme
Now with support for Dark-Mode

How to install:

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory, or better copy to /usr/share/themes for system-wide use.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take effect !

Limitations:

This is only GTK3 (no GTK2 support) and only works in the gnome-desktop.
No support for 200% scaling
Last changelog:

Added Dark-mode, better defined drop-down menu's, popover-menu's and context-menu's 3 days ago

Added a slighty darker version to be the dark-mode
Menu's where not very distinguishable. Now they are

Unfortunate you're not going to make this a full suite. Can you share the tools, etc. that were used to create this? Also some of the color codes? I'd like to have this for my Openbox desktop.

So Paul, would you consider a variant with colored select bar and buttons (instead of black)?

Nice but PaulXfce have you abandon Xfce ? No more new themes or adaptations.

True, basically because XFCE still uses an outdated xfwm. You need to remake every graphical element.
I've been a themer since 2007. So I am getting tired redoing everything for every DE.

Ok, your call Paul. Still Manjaro flagship, Xfce is the one of the most popular Linux distro, if not the most. I appreciate the beautiful themes you did for it and it's used on all my computers now. That will be sad not have the best designer put it aside.

So you should rename yourself PaulGnome then ! Just kidding ...

Just installed the latest Manjaro XFCE in virtualbox. Although they've ported many to GTK3, it still surprises me that they still choose to hang on to QT or GTK2-applications. This is exactly the reason why it is still a horrendous undertaking, trying to make a consistent theme. GTK2 is not advanced enough to make it as good a GTK3, and QT is.. well unthemable, or you have to use the GTK2-version of the theme. And even then, it just looks bad.

Themingwise, I would prefer XFCE using only GTK3 applications. Then, it would be easier and more consistent.

Existing themes on XFCE are (and that my personal opinion) plain, boxy, old fashioned and the UI is still very 90's. I mean: a titlebar, a menubar and a toolbar and let's throw another bottom-toolbar in it. That is what the 'modern' thunar looks like. Too much real estate. But that is my opinion. I'm not an advocate for Gnome-DE, I just like the consistency and the minimal use of headers in their UI.
About my name, well PaulXFCE is indeed not well choosen...

I don't want to drag on this conversation because it is not the place really but I don't think you remember me. I use Manjaro Xfce on my 6 computers and the only theme I use is your outstanding "Prof-XFCE" 2.1 theme. I think your are the only one to make so complete and professional looking theme. You even modify it for nemo which I use in xfce. I even submit it to the Manjaro group as their default theme which beats their goofy theme. That's why I am sad that you are abandoning xfce. I believe Manjaro is all gkt3 based now as I don't see ANY discrepancies anywhere with your theme.
Anyway I'll be watching If you ever produce another one of that caliber. Seems that you are the best one at that job.

Ya, why take the easy way, if there is a so more chalenging difficult path to pursue. Sorry for ranting yesterday. And yes, I do remember you now. Alright, just tell we which theme you'd like me to port. And I will try to give it a shot.

Remember, I'm not easily convinced. I may make several test-versions before presenting something final. Time is of the essence.

Thank you very much. God forbid I tell you what to do but here are my personal pick for a full blow xfce theme, if I may. Not a fan of dark themes but your cameo series is great. Speaking of Manjaro, the cameo-manjaro series could be a full blown xfce theme for their flagship. Specially love the Cameo-Manjaro-Light, Light-DS. Finally I always had a thing for your 2018 Orangini theme which have a good balance of dark and light colors with a beautiful orange accent.

Ok time is not the essence for me so take all the time you like. Beautiful colors matching is. Nothing wrong also experimenting with gnome themes too.

Take care

This question has nothing to do with your theme : In your screenshot, I can see an icon theme with different colored folders. How do I get this? I installed the folder-color package, but I'm not getting this rendering ... Thank you for your answer.

Open your software-center and search for 'folder-color'. It's an extension for nautilus which allows you to change the folder-color in the right-click-menu is you select a folder. You need to have an icon-theme that supports colored folders. Most good icon-themes do.

It seems that my icon-theme (MacOS) don't supports colored folders ... I have to update (or change) it ...

Almost perfect. I wish you could make a version with the selected item highlighted in green or blue (instead of black).

4 No GTK2 theme in a dark suite means it's not great for me :(

Although I really do appreciate a step away from unusably pitch black or glaring white themes (or ones that do both)! Thank you for that. I think it's just an eye brightness accommodation thing when flipping between dark and light windows. Wide areas of mid-shades seem to make it better, so I often really like your color choices on these GTK3-only themes :/

Dark themes are relevant in the evening and at night (I like to work at night ...), and rest my eyes.
When they match their light counterpart, it is happiness.
This is why I like your themes, and also because they are harmonious.
I'm modifying them to make them more like what I would like them to be.
