Gnome-PRO

Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX.

The NEW VERSION Gnome-PRO is Gnome 3.28 ready, with crispier fonts, new hover-effects and new check- and radio-items, and the use of gradient-colors (even on GTK2-menu's), and reduced clutter on the headerbar (simple headerbar buttons) makes this new version a more serene, comfortable layout for your daily jobs.

IMPORTANT: This theme works best with 'Myriad Set Pro Semibold'. Just google it, and make sure you ONLY install the 'semibold' -version, not the complete 'family', because then, your system will use the regular version instead of the semibold version of Myriad Set Pro. The semibold-version (here in my set-up at 12pt) is easier on the eyes.

Requirements

First, This theme only works in the gnome-desktop, with GTK 3.20 -GTK 3.28, and also in Ubuntu 18.04+

Next, buttons should be on the right side. If they are not: here is the terminal-code:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"
In Gnome 3.26, the Tweak-tool makes it easier to change the button-position. The above commands are then no longer necessary.

When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines":
Make sure the GTK2-engines-pixbuff are installed:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf is the terminal command in Ubuntu.

Furthermore:

- The gnome-themes-standard package,
- The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


How to install:

Download the theme.

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK-theme. For systemwide use (or if you use SNAP-packages) make sure the theme resides in USR/SHARE/THEMES/

LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

Really like these two themes. But can't use them because as soon as I apply the theme, the desktop background turns grayish white although it should display a picture. I have nemo installed on Ubuntu 17.04 and the desktop displays icons for home, computer etc.

Tried tweaking the css but could not figure out.

Any tips?

Thanks in advance

I cannot reproduce your problem, but there is something you can try: delete the following text on line 17 in the GTK.CSS of GTK 3.0:
background-image:linear-gradient(to bottom left,rgba(238,244,246,1),rgba(221,227,232,1),rgba(221,227,232,1),rgba(238,244,246,1));
Do not remove the bracket '}' !
This might me the cause...

There is no support for nemo,(in fact I removed any code related to nemo) because this theme only works in a standard gnome-desktop. Nautilus is the default and is therefore seriously tweaked ( in fact tweaked in a very unorthodox way) . Nautilus manages the desktop-background and icons. So using a different file-manager has some major side-effects on the theme-front. Anyway, I will look into it, since I'm curious...

9 Overall I'm really liking this theme. My only issue is the nautilus top bar buttons are too far from the left, like they expect me to have min/max/close over there and are leaving space for that... It feels odd when other apps have buttons in that space.

true, it is designed that way. Such that (when sliding the sidebar as far left as possible) it positions itself right between the arrows and the location-bar

remove line 6090 'padding-left: 88px;' in the GTK.CSS of GTK 3.0 (if you know what you are doing) to remove the empty area in nautilus headerbar.

I would love to make a dark version, if only it didn't pose so many problems. There are many issues to deal with, and compromises to make, in order to get it working properly. Such, that it would lower the quality of the theme as a whole. All of my other themes have no dark version either for the same reason.
