GTK2 Themes

Description:

Victory is a bright, flat, and minimalist theme. This theme was made using, and primarily for use on, Xubuntu and Lubuntu 16.04 thru 18.04, but should work fine with any XFCE/LXDE-based distro. Gtk3 elements should work on Gtk 3.18 (Ubuntu 16.04) and above. Even though a Gtk3 theme is provided, I have not tested it on Gnome3, so please report issues. As of the 18.07 release, Gtk3 theming has become the primary focus, and as of this release, all Gtk3 elements should be themed correctly. I've also included variant borders and styles for Openbox and XFWM, as well as a notification theme for XFCE. Again, please let me know if anyone has any problems, thoughts, constructive criticisms, etc.

Thanks again everyone... I really appreciate all the feedback, votes, and comments!

I have also recently set up Patreon and Liberapay pages for those interested in supporting my work, and any contributions are greatly appreciated:

++ Installing ++

To install, downloaded the tar.gz, open it and extract the folder of your preferred theme into your ~/.themes folder (if your home directoy does not have a .themes folder, create one). Then open your desktops Appearance Manager to select the theme.

+ Appearance Managers

- XFCE: xfce4-appearance-settings (for Theme/Controls)
- XFCE: xfwm4-settings (for Window Border)

- LXDE: lxappearance (for Theme/Controls)
- LXDE/Openbox: obconf (for Window Border)

+ Theme Directory is located at /home/USERNAME/.themes


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

++ Configure ++

You can modify the colors and change some styles in the /home/USERNAME/.themes/victory-gtk-theme/gtk-3.20/gtk.css file. Open that file and you can change the colors. At the bottom you can uncomment lines for various custom styles that will affect certain applications or parts of the theme (more styles to be added later). The picture for this theme is using Thunar, for example, with the thunar custom view line uncommented. This removes the back/forward/home buttons from thunar and makes the location bar take up all the space.


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

++ Credits ++

In the first preview image I am using the Victory Icon Theme and the wallpaper Flow by tri5tian here on this site. Icons used in the second image (temporarily removed until I have time to re-add the color variants after the 18.07 release) include Boston icons, Arc icons, Papirus icons, Breeze icons.

i received a message in italian that i have translate:

Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running some preferences may not take effect. This situation indicates a possible problem with DBus, or that a non-GNOME settings manager (eg to KDE) is already running, creating conflict with the GNOME settings manager.

I have gnome 2.30

After that message appear the theme manager but without victory theme (appear only in non root mode)

Ok, that means the Victory theme isn't in your root theme folder, or it's not linked.

Try sudo nautilus. Then go to your home directory (/home/yourname/). Click View hidden files, and find the ".themes" folder.

Right click on it and click "Make Link"

Now put that link in the /root folder, and make sure it's named ".themes".

After that you should see it after you do sudo gnome-appearance-preferences.

If that doesn't work, I don't know why, and I'm not sure what else to do. I don't know what all the options/menu names are in Italian, but I hope I explained this well enough.

Let me know.

Well, I'm glad you figured it out. I was afraid I didn't explain it well enough.

I'll try to figure out the terminal icon too.

Anyway, I'm glad you got it working, and glad you like it! Thanks a lot!

Hi,

First of all i would like to congratulate you on this great piece of work, thanks for sharing it :)

I have 1 question for you though, is there any way to change the panel menu bar colour? I have changed the colour of my panel bar but when i click on it (on system, for instance) i get the dark grey menu bar. I've tried tweakin the colour values in the source code without any luck (i've been able to modify just about everything except that :p). I've been succesful changin its colour under different themes but not on yours. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks and good work!

Thanks for the compliments, and glad you like it!

By default, the panel is forced to use images. But if you open the gtkrc (/home/yournamehere/.themes/Victory/gtk-2.0/gtkrc) you can change it.

Go down to the bottom of the gtkrc and you'll see a part that says "Options". You can choose from 3 different panel types: Dark with images (default), or a Dark or Light that you can change the colors of. The dark panels have light text, and the light panel has dark text if that matters to you.

Under Options, you will find:
Quote:1) Dark Panels

include "extras/darkpanel.rc"
#include "extras/darkpanelmurrine.rc"
If you put a # in front of both, it will give you a light panel. If you put a # in front of the darkpanel.rc line, and take the # away from the darkpanelmurrine.rc line, it will give you a dark panel with colors you can change.

Make the changes, save, and then switch from the Victory theme, to another theme, and then back, and you should see the changes.

After this, you can right click on the panel and go to Properties>Background and change the color, there.

Or you can use gnome-color-chooser (available in most repositories), which can change all the colors of the panels - along with tons of other color and icon tweaks for Gnome. It's really nice.

I wasn't sure if I should include the 'image' panel by default... I didn't want to make it too complicated! Sorry for the confusion, and if you need more help or if I didn't explain it well enough, just let me know! Thanks!

Hi again!

Thanks for the quick reply!

Since the comment and uncomment you mentioned in your reply are just as I already have them in my source code (and after my previous unsuccesful attempts at tweaking the colours) I have opted to use gnome-color-chooser and have been able to change the menu colours. For that I thank you and must say my desktop is looking rather sexy :P.

If you could help me with my last problem I would be very grateful. My right clicking menu is the last thing I want to change. Is there any way to change the colour of it? When i tried changing the colours of the panel in my first attempt, I also found out I wasn't able to change the right clicking manu bar either and experimenting with gnome-color-chooser I have had no luck. If you could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

Once again thank you for your time and help!

Hi again!

I apologise for the double post. I just wanted to say that I have been able to work out how to unforce the grey menus. It was just a case of commenting the second option "Dark Menus" and i was able to get the colour schemes i was interested in.

Once again thanks for your work. Desktop is looking totally awesome!!

Usually when ones tries to make something that looks distinct and unique, simplicity goes out of the window. You've managed to produce something that is clean, customizable, good looking, distinct and yet simple, how cool is that ?

The close button, when placed on the left is too close to the edge. Here's a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/CmGde.png

Ok, I updated it. I had some problems while working on the borders with the spacing when the buttons were aligned left, but it should be better now. Let me know. And thanks for the screenshot.

Also, thanks for adding this theme to your Theme Pack. I read about the pack when you posted it, and really like all the other themes and icon sets you put in there, so it's really cool of you to have put this one in there too! Thanks!

Oh yeah... that's something I meant to fix the last couple times and forgot all about! Good catch.

Under:
Quote:style "combobox" = "button"
you'll see
Quote:engine "murrine"
add these lines under where it says comboboxstyle:
Quote: glow_shade = 1.0
glowstyle = 2

The glow behind the buttons is intentional - it happens when it's a light theme too, but it's less noticable. If you want to change it find:
Quote:style "toolbarbutton-prelight"
and under engine "murrine" change the glow_shade from 20.0 to 2.0 or whatever you want.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

I'm not sure why you have that black square... that has never happened to me, sorry.

For the arrows on the path bar... I don't remember exactly what I did, but everything involved with the path bars should be found under:

I think that in this great theme only one thing is missing .... a dark panel ..... have you planning to do it in the next releases?

Not sure if you still use the Victory theme, or are interested, but I just added a dark panel with dark menus. If you still have any interest, let me know what you think.

Thanks, glad you like it. I think I'm kind of done with major changes on this theme... just some updates if apps need fixes. But a while back I was playing with a dark panel (Check the Small Victory Gtk Theme). Since I'm not really modifying the theme anymore, maybe I'll go back and play with the dark panel over this next month.
