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!

cheers!

I don't think you can delete, haha.

Sorry, I should make it more clear in the description. After you install the theme it will be in:

/home/YOURNAME/.themes/Victory/

So, in your themes folder, then in the Victory or Victory Elementary folder.

Let me know if this helps or if you need anything else.

Hey, it kinda helped. I ran the script twice - first without the check and than with check box. Now the scrolls aren't transparent anymore but i still can't grab them. Anyway I love the theme and just can't wait to see where it goes!

cheers

Glad you got it half way working at least! I'm not sure why you can't grab them, though. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and it seems to work for me - but maybe someone else had the same problem as you and could help? Any extra info... What version of OpenOffice are you using, and dist of Linux, etc?

 slight change

The one thing that I'd like, is a slightly differing hover on color for active window close buttons. Theres a great contrast on the maximize and minimize, but hardly any change on the close. either a brighter red on hover, or an outline circle or something.

Yeah, I'd thought about that before. I actually only meant for that border to be a placeholder until people found a nicer window border, ha.

Anyway, I changed it a little for this update. Let me know if that's enough or if it needs more.

Thanks for the advice - let me know if you have any more.

 Nice Theme

This theme is quite nice. I like the simplistic breadcrumbs and the colour scheme is nice. My only qualm is that it is perhaps a bit bright, but other than that it is very nice. :)

Thanks, I appreciate it.

It is a little bright. It was originally a little darker... but I tried it on a few different monitors, and it seemed more dull/dark on the others than it did mine... so I made it brighter. I just figure, better bright than dull... and it's easily changeable, I guess.

Anyway, thanks again. And I hope you got the breadcrumbs working for your theme - I sent you a message. I remember having that problem, but don't know how I fixed it, and I wouldn't be able to remember without seeing the gtkrc.

 odd-row-color

Absolutely great theme. But is it just me or are these lines:

GtkTreeView::odd-row-color = shade (0.97, @bg_color)

GtkTreeView::odd-row-color = shade (0.96, @selected_bg_color)

really wrong?
I'm getting errors when starting programs using a TreeView (in a terminal).
I just commented them out and it works fine (looks just like before, with odd and even rows in different colors, but no errors).

Thanks! Glad you liked it.

I'm not sure about the error though . Can you give me an example of something I could start in the terminal to show that? I don't get it when starting totem or nautilus in treeview.

Thanks for the help.

Sure can.
Try opening VLC and then the open-dialog, this should do the trick (the TreeView was just a guess, because that was where I first realized it and well its how the the line in gtkrc is called ;) ).
I hope that helps.

Sorry DerDot... I can't get the same error any way I try.

Maybe if you post more info like murrine engine version, gnome version, distro, error line, etc... maybe someone else had a similar problem and could help.

I know you already solved it by changing those lines... but they shouldn't be a problem.

Try the new release of the theme. I doubt it will change anything... but it's worth a try I guess.

Sorry I can't do more! Maybe we can figure out what's behind it though.
