Description:

This theme was an attempt to allow everyone to pick a wide variety of colors and window borders. You can change the sidebar colors to any color you prefer, or if you prefer another window border, you can change the menubar color to make it blend together. This is my first time doing something like this, so there may be a lot of problems - Let me know. Thanks so much to everyone for help, feedback, comments, messages, voting, and fannage(?). Also, negative/critical feedback is just as (and sometimes more) important as any other. I don't know what down votes mean without it! Hope everyone enjoys. Thanks again!

- Darin


----------------------------------------------------------


How to Use


++ Colors ++

Several Gtk desktops have an Appearance Manager (see below), usually under the System menu, that allow you to customize a themes colors. If not, try this:

1. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
2. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
3. Open the file /home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

Each of these files contain the color settings in the top of the files. The important parts are:

selected_fg_color
selected_bg_color

tooltip_fg_color
tooltip_bg_color

Here's what each one of those changes:

selected_fg_color = Sidebar Text Color
selected_bg_color = Sidebar Background Color

tooltip_fg_color = File Menu Text Color
tooltip_bg_color = File Menu Background Color

Just change the #xxxxxx to a color you like! Save, and log out and back in to see the changes!





++ Options ++

This theme offers options for light panels, light menus, Nautilus elementary, the ability to try old Victory styles, and more.

At the bottom of the gtkrc or gtk.css file (mentioned in Steps 1 and 2 of the color section), you will find a section called Options. Comment or Uncomment lines (add or remove a # at the beginning of the line or the /* at the beginning and */ at the end) to try different options. After making changes, save the file. You will have to change to another theme for a moment. Go back to the Victory theme, and your changes should appear.



++ Installing ++

To install, extract the downloaded tar.gz. Put the folders (Victory, Victory for Top Panels) in your themes directory. Then open your desktops Appearance Manager to select the theme.

Log out and back in to make sure all changes take effect (especially in Gnome 3)

If you would like root apps (Synaptic/Package Manager/GParted) to use your theme, try the following. Step 2 may give an error that there was no such folder. If so, ignore it and move on to Step 4.

1.) Open terminal and type:
2.) sudo mv /root/.themes /root/.themesbackup
3.) Hit enter, then type:
4.) sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root
5.) Hit enter

2012.03.16b - Repackaged and reuploaded. Was having a problem with compression, causing the files for Cinnamon, Gnome-Shell, and a lot of other updates not to work. If you had any problems using this update, delete it, try it again, and let me know if anyone else is still having problems. Sorry!

2012.03.16 | c
Updated again on 2012-05-13.
This theme was created using Gtk3.2. They made some theme changes in Gtk3.4, so it doesn't look as intended. This update is a temporary fix for the biggest problem in Gtk3.4 - white text. Hopefully I can update the theme in the next month or so to address the rest of the problems.


Anyway, let me know what's good or bad, or if any apps aren't theming right or anything. Thanks again everyone... I really appreciate all the feedback and comments!

Thanks! That's ok, don't worry about it. I'm glad you posted that picture, I wasn't even sure what it'd look like! Does the places bar look ok? I tried Nautilus 2.30 just on a Lucid 10.04 Live CD, and it was much worse than that. It does some weird stuff.

I posted about it here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1459738

Once I get Lucid on here, I'll try to make a new version for it. But Picture 4 in that thread may be as good as I can get 2.30.

Thanks again!

Thanks for trying. I appreciate the help. This is the best temporary solution I could figure out right now:

http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/nJLemOQVhHlLk-VO1DmNag?feat=directlink

If you change everything under

Quote:
style "nautilus-sidebar-title-text" to: @selected_bg_color


and everything under

Quote:
style "nautilus-sidebar-title" to: @bg_color


It should help some. I don't think that will fix the icon size slider or Icon View button, but I'll have to look more at that when I get Lucid on here. Sorry! Let me know if that helps any.

I think that:
class "*Nautilus*Window*" style "nautilus-sidebar-title" #Background of Sidebar Title bar.

Sets all widgets' properties in nautilus.

So that's not "correct", because we only want to change the "Places Title Bar"..

I've inspected nautilus' source code and i don't understand why set:
"*NautilusSidebar*HBox*"
doesn't work..

Yeah, I don't get it either. I tried, but couldn't figure it out. It's like the class Window should theme only the window. The Sidebar title/Pathbar/Statusgrip should be themed as widget, but it's like they're transparent.

The more I played around with it, the more weird things I found with Nautilus 2.30... which is why I had to make Elementary its own versions, because when you hide the Pathbar, it doesn't hide all the way. It leaves a few pixels as shadow. It's ugly.

Well, I hope it turned out decent, anyway. Let me know if it's ok, and if you figure anything out with that.

Thanks a lot for the help and everything.

For the icon slider, I was going to use the volume slider, but it would've made the statusbar bigger, and was kind of distracting. Let me know if you like how it turned out or not.

Thanks a lot for the input!

I'm not sure why it would do that. Does it happen when you open/save things, too, on that bar? Anyway, yeah, you could try editing the gtkrc. Try and see if this works:

Find:
Quote:

style "nautilus-toolbar"

...
GtkButton::inner-border = {0, 13, 0, 0}


and try changing the 13 to something higher. Let me know if that helps or not, and thanks!

Sorry, I don't know anything else that might help. Under "style "nautilus"" you could try changing the xthickness, but I don't think that will work either, if the above didn't work.

Do normal themes that have buttons for the path bar look smashed together like that, too?

 Menu font colour

Score 50%

Thank you for this fantastic theme!!! So fresh!

I have a small issue though. Although Firefox menubar font is bright gray, which makes it properly visible, Thunderbird's is dark, identical to the background colour. That makes the letters completely invisible!

If that's deliberate, it's awesome (how you've managed it), but unusable! :D

I think I'll make this theme permanent regardless of whether you fix the above issue or not. It's so good!

Congrats and thanks again for all your hard work!

Thanks a lot! I didn't even think to check Thunderbird (I don't know why), so thanks for bringing that up.

I can't do anything about that on my part. It is/was a Mozilla bug. Luckily, it's been fixed for the next version of Thunderbird. If you download Thunderbird 3.1 Beta, it should fix this.

If you use Ubuntu, here is the PPA for 3.1 Alpha. It's older, but it worked for me:
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa

If you want the latest Thunderbird 3.1 Beta 2, it's on their site:
http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/early_releases/downloads/

The same thing drove me crazy when I started this, since Firefox 3.5 is the same way (they fixed it in 3.6). Mozilla stuff doesn't theme the best, which is why the Toolbar buttons don't match the rest of the theme, and the scrollbars are a little different.

Anyway, I'm glad you like it! Thanks a lot for the comments, and let me know if you have any other problems or anything.

Many thanks Darin,

That was a very helpful reply!

I use Ubuntu at work so I'll wait for a stable version of Thunderbird to upgrade. I use ubuntuzilla for fresh but stable releases, so I won't wait long. :)

The only other issue is that I can't decide whether I would like to ask you for a dark panel version or not! :D

P.S. Could you please let me know which value I can modify in gtkrc so that panel menu items appear more condensed? I have a big menu and a 2560x1024 resolution which doesn't fit it vertically.

Keep it up!

Hey, I hadn't heard of Ubuntuzilla, that's cool.

For the dark panel, if you're using Gnome, you can use gnome-color-chooser to pick colors of the panel text (plus all kinds of other things). It would be nice if Appearance Preferences allowed a few extra color options, like the panel... but it doesn't. Oh well. Gnome Color Chooser is nice.

Here's a link... it's also in the Ubuntu repositories I think. If not, it has a PPA on the site.
http://gnomecc.sourceforge.net

Anyway, thanks again, and let me know if you have any other problems or anything.

In addition, i have some feedback i hope you take into consideration :)

Minor things.

1) Seek-bar for panflute is kind of bulky.

2) There are no grip-handles

example of the above two can be see seen in this images where i compare your theme to ubuntu's default:

http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/4001/screenshot1fg.png

I circled to better show you. (ps: lines are wiggly because my mouse acts funny in ubuntu. i don't have TNI parkison's, lol)

3) panflute's seekbar is one color. it should be a different color one on side to indicate how much has played

4) is there a dark version coming soon??!


thanks for this theme. i am using it as it is, even if none of the above is fixed. it's great.

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate that.

I'll probably put a newer version up here in the next day or so that will make a few of those things better.

For Panflute, it won't be bulky, but it won't have two different colors. I'll work on that for next time. I noticed several panel problems I'll try to fix next time.

For the grips, I left those out on purpose. I really don't like the grips, and when I first started I tried several different types, but couldn't get one I liked. I'll try it again next time and see how it goes. Thanks for the picture... I was going to ask how you got those shaky lines... I actually like how it looks, haha.

For the dark version of this theme... sorry, I don't think I'll make one. I would in the future like to make an entirely new theme that is specifically made to be dark. Any suggestions on some good dark themes I should take a look at (Linux or otherwise)?

I just took a screenshot and put it up on the Victory Elementary page where I changed the colors of this theme to dark.
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Victory+%28Strikes+Again%29+Elementary+2.30?content=124225

I've tried to make it where the colors could be changed to dark and it still look ok. Have you tried that? And if so, what problems does it have? I'll try to fix whatever I can.

Thanks again for the feedback, and keep letting me know of any more ideas, or problems you have. I don't use dark a lot, so it's good if others can try it out and let me know. Thanks!

Ok i misused the term "dark". I actually meant just the task bar. i'm a big fan of dark taskbars. BUT, if you don't release it with a dark taskbar, i could modify it myself, shouldn't be too hard.

Ah, ok. Yeah, that's easy to do. If you've never used it before, you should definitely check out Gnome Color Chooser. It should be in the Ubuntu repositories (gnome-color-chooser).

http://gnomecc.sourceforge.net

With that you can change the gnome panel text colors, and all kinds of stuff. Anyway, hopefully that works for you.
