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.

 New Wave : excellent ! Color ?

Hello,

First I want to congratulate you for your fantastic theme : I really love New Wave, it looks modern and beautiful, I hope it will be included in the artwork for next Ubuntu versions !

I installed the Dark Menus one and it is very nice.

For my own use on personal desktop, there are 3 details I would like to change in order New Wave (Dark Menus) becomes perfect for me :

- Color of a clicked button (mouse over it) or element and clicked progression bar as blue instead of orange.

- Have on the top right on the windows for Dark Menus the sames buttons (with the X bigger) than in classic New Waves : to get that, I mixed the theme with Dark Menus and Metacity New Waves, but now title of window and menu bar aren't the same black / grey color, how to get this ?

- Most important : on Nautilus file manager, when I drag & drop a file, there is no more the up and down black lines on the folder where I move the document, and it is annoying, this helped me a lot to move on the right folder.

If you know what modifications to make on your configuration files (after having downloaded the pack), thanks a lot in advance !

Again, great work ;-)

1) It is very hard to change the color scheme of the theme to blue but it is not impossible. You could modify the sources (.svg files) and then reconstruct the whole theme as blue one. In the repositories here you could find the soureces:
https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-new-wave/anton/devel

2) Do you mean the metacity with the key shape?

3) I don't know what exactly are you talking about. Probably report a bug here and attach screenshots:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/anton

As a matter of fact you can report all your issues as bugs in LaunchPad. That is the way I prefer people to tell me about issues with the theme .

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for your answer.

1- It was not the most important, the orange you choose is nice, too, I'm not very well on programming and compiling, but I will try your advice. Blue is better compliant with Tango Icon theme I use.

2- I selected New Wave Dark Menus theme in order to have dark color on the menus, but as I wanted the windows buttons from NewWave theme, in Appearance - Customize - Window Border, I put NewWave, as you can see :

http://www.hiboox.fr/go/images/informatique/newwave,a32c60653cf33b507b2983c52ae7591f.png.html

But now, the title bar of each window has not exactly the same color as menu bar just below in the same window - one is grey, other is black and I'd like the same color, is it possible or do I have also change the svg ?

3- For Nautilus, I could not print screen when moving a file, so I did it in Gimp : normally when I drag the file with the mouse on the left of screen to move it to "home" folder for example, when cursor is just over "home", 2 rows appear above and under the name "home" to show you that, if you stop left-clicking mouse, file will be moved in this folder.

With NewWave theme, I do not have anymore this rows, when I am on Nautilus trying moving a file, I do not know exactly on which folder it will go.

I hope I am clear...

Yes you are clear now.

1) The sources are svg files from whitch you should extract png's with appropriate color. If you achieve good results you could post the theme to the *-look.org sites.

2) The window borders you are trying to use are from ver 0.6.x and New Wave in 0.7.x has the same metacity in all types of themes (dark, light menus). However I will try to make a version of the old ones that fits 0.7.x .

3) That is probaly an issue of the pixmap engine I'm using. There is almost 90% chance not to find a solution but I will check this out. Still if you report a bug at LP I will be better able to coordinate this problem.

Thank you for taking the time to report these issues.

Hello,

1- I will try

2- That's right, I first installed NewWave by downloading community-themes on Ubuntu Intrepid, it should be version 0.5 or 0.6, then I installed Dark Menus from the 0.7.2 got from here.

Personally I prefer the "old" window border style with big X, thanks for your proposal for doing a version which fits 0.7

3- I will post a bug report on Launchapd for Nautilus

Best regards :-)

I'm glad you like it.

You are talking about the menus not being shown with the correct text color? If so I will make everything possible to include a fix in the next major version (0.8).

The theme New Marmol has menubars with light background and black text. The situation in New Wave is exactly the opposite. But as I said I will find a way to fix this. Meanwhile you could report a bug in LaunchPad and track the progress there (Check the support section of the description text). Because if I find a solution earlier I may post it there but not here. In gnome-look.org I post only complete and tested products.

 Scrollbar

Looks good except I find the scrollbar button (what the heck do you call it exactly?) to be a little outdated looking. The rest of the scrollbar looks good though, I wish it was this good in Dust which needs work.

Maybe some more colours here and there throughout the theme? Without much colour it isn't distracting, but a little depressing over time.

Very clean looking otherwise.

I'm thinking to make a "facelift" of the scrollbars for 0.8 so they will be a bit better than now I hope.

About the color I don't really know what should I change (suggestions?). Only good change is the change of iconset that will by very much modify the whole experience with the theme. I have a custom one in the LaunchPad site and I'm considering to use Breath when it's full enough.

I don't think you should change the color, I really like the current scheme.

 window list

Hi, I think your theme is the best one I've ever seen here on Gnome-look. There's only one thing I'd like to see changed: the window list. I think a glow behind the text would look nice, instead of plain grey squares.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you!

Sorry for the late reply but I was away from home. What is this list you are talking about? Is it the one that you could switch running applications?

This theme sets new benchmarks!
More discrete colors like blue or gray for the scrollbar and buttons would make the theme perfect for me! Thank you for the excellent work!

I don't have the time to make a blue version but I talked wit a guy that said he is doing such and will release it. But I don't know when unfortunately.

I'm workin on New Wave 0.8.0 so you should expect it some time in the future (I'm still testing it and adding new stuff).
