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!

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


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!

 no scrollbar in openoffice

 
 by bzhu6 on: Jun 7 2010
 
Score 50%

I really like the gtk theme! but i have 2 questions for you:

1) In my PC, for the openoffice, there is no scrollbar (vertical or horizonal) available. You mentioned you fixed something in openoffice. I'm not sure we are referring to the same. could you help to take a look?
2) for me, the vertical padding between menu items (I mean Main Menu in gnome panel: Applications/Places/System) is a little large. I want it be smaller. Would you tell me how can I modify the gtkrc file?

Thanks! Glad you like it. Also glad you got the OpenOffice thing working.

For the Menu Item spacing, open the gtkrc and find the line:

style "menu-item"

ythickness = 6 - This is what changes the spacing between menu items. It may also change the menubar padding. If you don't like that, you can add a ythickness line under style "menubar"

Anyway, hope this helps. Let me know if it works!

Usually I don't comment on gtk themes except for bug reporting. But I really want to say this is great work, looks awesome on my 24" monitor!

Would you mind preparing a slimmer version for smaller monitors? :)

Like a netbook edition? I actually wouldn't mind doing this.

Sometimes this theme is tough to keep updated as it is - Also the fact that I'm trying to do a version for regular Nautilus and Nautilus Elementary right now...

I might try and play around with this and the dark panel idea in the future.

Do you have any suggestions on what aspects to change/make smaller? That would help. Thanks for the feedback! Glad you like it.

Thinking through it, it is not THAT important. I mean, using gnome-global-menu would solve much of the problem. The only thing that comes to mind would be a "slimmer version" of breadcrumbs, with reduced height but I dunno if this is possible via gtk2 rc. How bout that?

I'm playing around with a slim version - try giving that a look if you haven't already.

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Victory+%28Strikes+Again%29+-+Small+Victory?content=124225

I'm using Nautilus elementary right now, and the only way I could reduce the size of the breadcrumb bar was to reduce the icon size, and the text size. I'm not sure if this would work in normal nautilus. I changed the size of the Places title, and that didn't make a difference in the size of the toolbar.

But changing the icons and text sizes only reduces it by a few pixels anyway. I can't control the size of the toolbars - they often have a defined size or set padding between the bars and text/icons.

Try looking at the Small theme, though, and let me know on that page what you like or don't like about it. It's kind of an experiment right now, so I'm up for ideas on that one for sure.

Hey, while I was playing around with this, I realized you can change the padding of the toolbar. In the gtkrc, just do a search for:

GtkToolbar::internal-padding

And change that value. 0 means no padding. Also, if you want to save more space, right under that, you will find the style:

style "toolbarbutton-prelight"

GtkButton::inner-border

This will change the padding of the buttons. {x,x,x,x} - the last two digits will change the padding above and below, the first two will change padding to the left and right.

Anyway, let me know if this helps, and if this is what you were looking for!

Thanks!

Someone also asked about that border earlier on OMGUbuntu, so I'll use that answer here! It's from the Ambiance Drakfire Mod on Gnome-Look:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ambiance+Drakfire+Mod?content=124028

But it looks like that one was from this Fresh Dark Gnome theme on DeviantArt:
http://hcalves.deviantart.com/art/Fresh-Dark-Gnome-Theme-2-1-95737856

Which itself was from K03 theme?
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/K03?content=86417

The Drakfire mod one matches best, and is the one I used in the picture. The K03 theme I think includes a borderless version, which is cool too. It's a really nice border.
