Better "lookalike" feel with GTK apps 1 year ago

Kinda massive update. OK it's not, but dark theme lovers would see the difference instantly.
Tell me if you like it.
Use with color-schemes, updated too. And GTK have seen an update recently as well.
Holy macaroni.


Button frame 1 year ago

Back to 5, because 8 was ginormous and ugly anyway.

Rebased on current upstream code 1 year ago

Rebased on current upstream code, but still some fixes for the light themes.
It's a shame that tooltips are being ignored for such a long time.

PS: those who don't like enormous toolbar [buttons] size, you might want to edit ~/.config/Kvantum/%themename%/%themename%.kvconfig as follows:

5 is a good setting too.

Categorization and small fixes 1 year ago

Light touches here and there, but you might like it.

GTK themes update 1 year ago

Fixed black frame around menus, ty @nana-4

GTK themes update 1 year ago

GTK themes got fix for window borders.
GTK themes are based on 20190315 Materia release from @nana-4 due to no difference in active/inactive window titles' and headers' colors, which is the same in Kvantum themes, so GTK apps don't look alien too much.
Recolor newer releases yourself if you prefer different active / inactive windows colors.

Old releases got removed.

Make this set more complete 1 year ago

Base dark/light compact GTK theme, beutified aurorae themes

Aurorae themes 1 year ago

Dark and light ones, corners are almost fine.

Added aurorae theme 1 year ago

Fixed corners of the original theme

Dark color scheme 2 years ago

Pls do note once again: color themes are basically stock Manjaro Breath ones, I only changed titlebar colors in order to use Breeze window decorations with corresponding Kvantum theme as I dislike aurorae.

Rebased on the optimized SVGs from PapirusDevelopmentTeam.
Added colour scheme for the light theme (use only with Kvantum and Breeze decorations). See updated screenshot.

Menu colour 2 years ago

Tweaked Light theme menu colour to match GTK theme and for the sake of compliance with Breath colours.
