Description:

It is time to give a modern and professional look to our desktop! The new theme makes more clever use of orange (not over-use it) and is mainly color-neutral. It is designed for Ubuntu in mind but can be used in other distros that may bear warm colors.


[size=3]Installation: (requires pixbuf theme engine)[/size]
Very simple. Just double click the file newwave-(xxx).gtp where (xxx) is the version number e.g. 050. Note that if you have previous version of the theme in your home folder you need to remove it first. You may need to log out then log in to make all changes appear (e.g. handlers, lines). For more information on how to fix Firefox's menubar text and how to use the theme in root programs see the README file.


Extras:
The package also contains:
- New Wave Configurator (GUI),
- Emerald themes,
- Compiz-fusion settings,
- Second theme with dark menus,
- Firefox skin,
- Some metacity tweaks.
- Time applet tips.
Theme for xfwm4 (Xubuntu) can be downloaded in the Download section of this page.

 Scrollbars

 
 by eitreach on: Aug 14 2008
 
Score 50%

Something about them isn't working out. I think it's the fadeout of the arrows - I would either remove the upper border so they become one with the read of the scrollbar, or make a completely solid border around them.

Looks nice, otherwise.

Thanks for the comment!

I tried a lot of combinations for the scrollbars and if they were not in the scrolled window widget it looks much better but several problems appear. First the line on the left of the horizontal scrollbar is almost the same color as the inner shadow, that would be drawn if the scrollbars were outside the widget, thus resulting in 2px thick line that isn't quite beautiful. Then there is and issue if I remove it in some apps the inner shadow of the content is not drawn and then they look unfinished.

I will further work on the sliders so that they look good as you suggested and appear well in all applications.

I'm not (yet..) too well-oriented in gtk theming, so you'll have to excuse me if something just sounds silly or wrong.

However, I wondered if it was perhaps possible to use that element from the new murrine engine - I know at least the feature is available there. Try looking up murrine symphony - I think it shows what I mean better. =)

Probably it's possible. But the engine is not released to the public yet (I know there is svn but it's not stable enough).

I could not quite understand you about what element I should look for in this murrine symphonic? Could you be more specific?

Here's a screenshot that shows of the new murrine scrollbars: http://arstechnica.com/journals/linux.media/murrine_glass.jpg

That said, since you're using the pixmap engine (and are obviously good at making art), you have no use for it. I like the scrollbars as they are.

What I find odd is the colour variance: the selected menu item is very dark in comparison with the rest of the theme, the list headers are different from the buttons (why?), and so on.

Other than that, it's a very promising pixmap theme. Keep up the good work!

The variance is intentional to make the use of the theme easier because what human eye sees first is color and when it's different it knows it is different object.

However this practice may not work very well with pc themes :) so I will try different options and see what's best.

I see what you mean, but we're talking about prelights, so NOT what the eye sees first, but what the eye sees after the cursor has moved over a specific widget.

If you look at some popular themes such as Microsoft's vista, you'll notice that it's very conservative in the numbers of colours it uses. The Human themes are also good in that they use minor variations in value, while retaining consistent hue and saturation throughout.

I reply to myself because there is no other way.

So I guess paraboy is right about that all colors should be of the same type and have to differ only in light/dark tones. I'll try to fix this and as soon as I'm ready I will upload the theme here.

Thanks for the useful feedback!

I did not mean to come off as right or wrong. I was simply pointing out that IMHO fewer colours tend to work better together. I was very impressed with your theme, hence the interest. But design is in the eye of the beholder. It's your theme, your choice, dude. Keep up the good work.

Don't worry, the yellow scrolls looked weird and somehow apart from the whole theme. Now it looks more consistent.

Sure I'm the designer but sometimes I make mistakes or just don't do what I feel is right. Now I feel the scrolls look better ;)

I like the GTK and emerald, may be you could extend it to GDM, usplash etc.. and what icons theme would you suggest?
maybe you can develop things like that Elementary OS project...

thank you

For gdm I recommend:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Intrepid+Ibex+GDM?content=86712

as it has similar colors and effects. As for the icons you could get the ones at the LaunchPad project (currently on the screenshots) here:

https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-new-wave/anton/devel.icons

These Icons are based on the Elementary Icons set (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Elementary+Icons?content=73439)

I guess this theme has a great potential, sort of dark themed but also easy on the eyes. the GDM you suggested goes well but i guess a separate Login Screen would make the pack more attractive and complete, Good Luck!

Now you have done the right thing, referring to your GDM, http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/New+Wave+Gdm?content=87370
If i may be critical, it would look better if the login box (your selected color in the theme) were a bit smaller! like the box in the original theme.

You have any plans for a wallpaper for your theme and GDM (background), the suggested one is good, but i think by creating one, your themes will be more effective, hope I am not asking too much from you!

here is a screenshot, of my desktop using your theme!

You have nice desktop ;)

You are right about the login box. I don't like it that big either. I will see what I can do about it. Btw do you like the color of the login box?

Yes I have plans for an active desktop (wallpaper slideshow that changes during night and day depending on the hour). But I have no certain ideas yet.

I guess if you choose a compatible (better) background, it would go well with the color of the login box, people have different tastes! I like the idea that it matches with the selected color in your gtk theme.

As far the changing wallpaper goes, a simple neat abstract wallpaper would do the trick if different shades (if thats what you are looking for) are compatible with your theme colors! good luck!

P.S. You inspire me! I guess i would get started on some theme/wallpaper!

050 installed perfectly, not sure what changed in the latest version

Yes that is the problem. The 050 version installed in folder New Wave and the 051 in folder new-wave051 that is not unified. I will fix this soon.
