Licensing for Steam's official assets (Links #1 & #3) are likely to be under their license; unfortunately, I'm not sure what that is. (You could just give credit to Valve/Gaben)
Link #2 is unlicensed shared art - Sep 28 2019

You beat me to it, you amaze me, kind sir! You certainly have the experience working with Inkscape I lack; time constraints always interfere with my time to learn new things. Trying to improve Steam(i.e., bug report galore), benchmark Mesa-aco, learn C/HTML/CSS, Wine/Proton patching/compilation, theme development, gaming research & systems administration has me stretched thin to say the least. I love your work here; it's the best I've witnessed this year (& possibly longer). If there were a "Theme of the Year" award, this massive undertaking deserves it. - Sep 28 2019

Pure black also works for contrast on progressbar text colors. I'm using that now. - Sep 27 2019

For someone who hasn't done a kvantum theme before; you wouldn't know it. This is an excellent effort and huge undertaking. You are my favorite theme developer here. Thank you for everything you've done; it's motivated me to get into theme development more. - Sep 27 2019

Great SVG theme that still needs some polish for modern desktops. Get rid of (copia) duplicates, add symlinks for pulseaudio taskbar icons (i.e., XFCE), fix battery icon charge status & colors, and get rid of any spaces remaining in filenames. Then you can generate an icon cache properly with gtk-update-icon-cache. I've done it manually before so definitely not impossible. The only thing I couldn't fix was the battery icons. I think something is messed up in the SVG colors. - Sep 23 2019
Nice theming! I'd only change the Libreoffice icons to have different colors for contrast, but others would probably disagree. This reminds me of the Flat No More icons in their lack of flatness (a feature becoming a rarity these days). I've often asserted the best (i.e., most unique) themes are lost to the past (i.e., obsolete/deprecated). Themes like this just prove my point. - Sep 23 2019

PHOB1AN, thank you for this, I appreciate it. I have dabbled in GTK3 theming before; I won't make any promises, but I'll see how hard it is to modify an existing theme to match. Right now I'm looking at E17gtk to modify. It will take awhile, but I'd like to see this idea gain more traction (matching Steam theming with GTK & QT). - Sep 23 2019

I've been making a monochrome variant which aims to match closer to Steam. I'll be giving it to you for official inclusion if you'll accept my contribution. Right now I'm working on doubling the width on the top line of the Maximize button & changing the Maximized icon when maximized to match Steam's. I'm learning Inkscape as I go, I'll give you the download link when done. Thanks again for this PHOB1AN! - Sep 23 2019

I meant matching the Scrollbar Arrow buttons from Steam's UI.

After the new Steam Library Beta hit, Valve ditched the scrollbar arrows; so now there is no need to add them.

Regardless of my opinion of the scrollbar arrow buttons, they have gone by the wayside.

Now I guess the only thing left is a full Kvantum theme to match. I wonder if you can use the assets included with Steam. Their license isn't really known for their graphic assets, but since this is a fan made work & people have distributed steam skins in the past using Valve's assets, I don't see Valve having an issue with it. They may even adopt this theme in a future SteamOS version. - Sep 19 2019

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 64 comments

This theme offers the best combination of contrast, gradients, & shadow for GTK. The only change I'd make is restoring scrollbar buttons on GTK3 for consistency (I'm aware of the issues & the difficulty of this undertaking, terminal scrollbars & embedded scrollbars are the main offenders) - Jul 28 2019

A responsive developer is gold in projects like these. Having a direct line of communication for issues is essential for the longevity of any theme. In this case, PHOB1AN's done some great work integrating and cleaning up the mess that Buuf was. I know, I've done local symlink work on Buuf for xfce's pulse audio/notifications & things were cluttered.

I would recommend this theme to anyone dissatisfied with flat, material design themes. - Jul 01 2019

Your symlinks aren't relative to local directories. They point to your development folder & many symlinks include your username. Cd to your working directory & use ln -s ../RELATIVEPATH LINKNAME.png. Once you've done one size, each list of symlink commands may be chained together and executed using && after you cd to the new working directory. Audio volume icon only shows max volume icon in kmix. If I run into more problems, I'll tell you. Thanks PHOB1AN! - Jul 01 2019

I believe flatness and material design are the antithesis to theme diversity and creativity. For this reason, I'm not sure I can sacrifice gradients in this theme. The gradients are what defines half of this theme's uniqueness. On one hand, you say most current themes are handsome yet boring; but on the other hand, one must acknowledge why they are this way. Their sameness stems from the flat design trend and Google's Material Design; it's infected modern themes on all operating systems. Instead of creativity, uniqueness, and diversity abounding; you have standards and look-alikes converging, partially owing to their ease of creation. It is for these reasons, I don't share your opinion on gradients. Some of the best themes were only made for GTK+ 2, and I don't know whether this will ever change with the blow GTK+ 3 landed to this community. - Jan 31 2019

GTK3 Themes by myrddin-wyllt 25 comments

This is the reason I wanted to fully take advantage of the feature set GTK+ 3 now provides. Just because GTK+ 3 caused an uproar, I believe many lost sight of any benefits it could've had. The disenfranchisement of the majority of GTK+ theme developers caused tons of professional-quality talent to be lost to this community probably forever. It's hard to say whether things with recover beyond the Cloned-OS theme era. - Jan 31 2019

Fonts are a matter of user preference. This theme uses no hard-coded fonts and it is left to the Desktop Environment. Feel free to choose whatever suits your fancy. I have always preferred serif fonts to sans-serif; but on small displays, I could see the validity of your opinion (i.e., phones, tablets, subnotebooks, etc.). - Jan 31 2019

Thanks for the thoughtful comment. Any tips for improvement? If you want to call it obsolete, then could you provide anything specific? You do realize this is the first release and it's being modernized for hours each day, right?
This comment is outright rude, discouraging, and devoid of reasoning. It is attitudes like these that are deliberately hurtful/harmful to developers, especially new ones. Please provide constructive criticism or I'll be forced to believe this act is malicious. - Jan 31 2019
