GTK3 Themes

Description:

Aldabra is a GTK2 theme that uses the Murrine and Pixmap engines to mimic the look of Adwaita, the default GNOME 3 theme.

The goal of this theme is to provide visual consistency between GTK2 and GTK3 applications. It is a work in progress, and there are several known issues: keyboard shortcut color in menus, gray menu gradient, and toolbar button hover glow.

Versions currently exist for GNOME 3.0 and GNOME 3.2. Please download the version of Aldabra that matches your version of GNOME.

Aldabra is available under the LGPLv2+. Anyone is welcome to rename, package, or otherwise distribute the theme (in whole or in part) as permitted by that license. Constructive feedback is greatly appreciated.

To make scrollbars more narrow in GTK2, adjust GtkScrollbar::slider_width and GtkScrollbar::stepper_size. I'm not sure yet about GTK3.

Aurora and Equinox are both very nice engines, but I would prefer to keep the number of engine dependencies to a minimum. The Moblin Netbook engine is also similar to Adwaita.

The buttons are on my to do list, thanks!

I'll post later about resizing scrollbars. I've been busy, sorry its taken me so long to reply.

Awesome work!

Any change of fixing the scrollbar for applications like Emacs and GVim?

Voted up!

The newest version (0.6.2) includes a fix for the gvim scrollbar. The width is not right because it is hardcoded in gvim (http://vim.1045645.n5.nabble.com/GTK-scrollbar-width-setting-with-X11-td1208194.html), but the steppers are not chopped off anymore.

This is exactly what I was looking for.
Works almost perfect with libreoffice *thumbsup*
However I appreciate it that in future gnome 3 version apps like firefox (espacially tabs in the titlebar) or libreoffice would better integrate with the look of the whole desktop.
Anyway: Thank you for sharing your theme

A new version of the Firefox userChrome.css is available here (http://pastebin.com/znJTpuHm). I added the Adwaita toolbar background but still haven't figured out how to fix the overlapping tabs.

add this to .tabbrowser-tab[selected=true]:

z-index: 1 !important;
position: relative !important;

Then create this selector:

.tabbrowser-tab[selected=false] {
z-index: 0 !important;
position: relative !important;
}

As for Aldabra, it’s amazing! I hope it makes it to upstream soon!

I’ve tinkered around with your CSS and arrived at this:

How does it work for you?

Nice work! Is there a way to specify #nav-bar for different tab positions (ie. tabs on top, tabs on bottom)? I made a userChrome.css based on yours designed for tabs on bottom (http://pastebin.com/CvPXTQNF), but I'd like to have one file that can do both, if possible. Thanks for great work!

How about this:

http://pastebin.com/2yXSP6uX

I've also fixed a slight tab label shifting when the throbber appears.

Unfortunately I have no idea as to how to consolidate both styles in a single .css file. There are also two other issues I couldn't fix:

Try creating enough new tabs to overflow the tab bar, then pin a couple of them.
There's no border between the unselected tabs and whatever is immediately below them (either the nav bar or the content area).

@inckie Thanks for the excellent work! Firefox looks great now. I am using Cantarell Regular 10 with a 0.9 Text Scaling Factor and have no alignment problems with your latest version.

@leecon Button highlights are wrong in all of Aldabra, not just Firefox. Once buttons are fixed in gtkrc, Firefox buttons _should_ display correctly without modifications to userChrome.css.

Looks good, you should make the new tab "+" button more unlike a button when hovering over it. The Adwaita tab buttons on say gedit3 don't act that way. Just the "x" icon lightens up a bit when hovering.

I don't know if this is “the correct way™” to do this, but here goes:

http://pastebin.com/PRyitD0s

(I changed some paddings to match Epiphany here on my machine—the differences I spotted might be related to the size I set for the UI font (Cantarell Regular @ 10pt).)

Great work combining the two styles, thanks! Some minor padding/size/margin tweaks: http://pastebin.com/TxtGMFpj

I took several screenshots and compared Firefox and Epiphany to align the various elements. Firefox is nearly pixel-pefect now. Do you know a way to make the border around #urlbar and .searchbar-textbox darker to match GtkEntry borders? Also, is there a way to disable access keys/mnemonic keys?

One more change, inspired by the Epiphany browser:

Two issues to go and I think we'll have a near-complete FF4 theme. ;)

It's really nice! Tab backgrounds are plain in other applications, so I'm not sure if the toolbar background should be used there. I like the gradient in #nav-bar, though.

I also noticed the two issues you mentioned, but I'm haven't found a fix yet. Adding a border-bottom to #TabsToolbar will draw a line under all tabs, but this is suboptimal, since the active tab should not be underlined.

I incorporated the corrected margins into another tabs-on-bottom design: http://pastebin.com/ATd9cfgb Thanks again for your excellent work!

Ok, I worked on Firefox tabs a bit. For a more native look, unselect "Tabs on Top" in Firefox. Then, create a userChrome.css file in $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/[profile].default/chrome. Paste this (http://pastebin.com/HEqfuyCi) into the userChrome.css file and restart Firefox.

The active tab is overlapped on the right, I'm still working on that.

You're welcome, I'm glad you appreciate it! I fixed Firefox menubar text in the latest version. I will look at tabs, but I'm not sure what I can do yet. Thank you for the feedback.
