GTK3 Themes by trastes 265 comments

Hi.

Just for the record and in the best spirit of doing things in the open, I have already received some help from kind members of our community:

https://github.com/rbrito/pkg-mediterranean-gtk-themes/graphs/contributors

We have started maintaining and improving the theme (as well as we currently can and know) so that it is starting to work with newer versions of GTK without looking too bad.

If you know anything about theming or is just curious about experimenting things like "what happens if I change this color in this theme to this other color", then we would love your help.

We are making progress, but we could always use some help, especially in making the theme easier to maintain.

You don't need to know anything about "programming" a theme to help. Just file an issue (preferrably with a screenshot of it showing weird things) and that will bring our attention to the problem.

Of course, if you can provide patches, that's even better, because we are all still learning this (and this is your opportunity to both learn from us and teach us something).

GTK3 Themes by trastes 265 comments

Dear people,

Instead of being all the time here asking for help (that probably won't come anytime soon), what if we joined our efforts to learn and improve this family of themes?

As a first step, I have put a git repository at

https://github.com/rbrito/pkg-mediterranean-gtk-themes

The master branch is still the same as version 2.03 of the tarball, but I have been integrating the changes that others have provided as patches stored in the `debian/patches` directory.

Once we reach a conclusion of maintaining this set of themes collaboratively, I will apply all the patches and potentially tag/release a new version (say, 2.04 or 2.10 or anything else) and delete those patches from the `debian/patches` directory.

I would kindly ask you if you know how to write GTK3 themes to lend a hand here (even if you don't use any of the themes yourself), as I am still learning as I am doing.

If you know anybody who has experience or has ever tweaked a GTK3 theme, please, let him/her know of this initiative and that we need some help.

Unfortunately, it seems that the original author of this theme (and, to be fair, of many other attractive themes) is not interested in updating the respective themes to newer versions of GTK and only be here clamoring for their attention will probably bear no fruits. His last response was, if I am not mistaken, in July of 2013.

This is Free Software after all, and as long as there are interested parties in the project, it will survive.

That being said, if the original author (or even authors of other projects) want to join the maintainance (so that the burden of maintainance becomes distributed on not entirely on one person's shoulders), feel free to join me and others.

Let's create a very attractive and professional looking theme for GTK applications, be they GTK2 or GTK3.


Regards,

Rogério Brito.

GTK3 Themes by trastes 265 comments

Hi.

Thanks a lot for your mediterranean themes. I would like to package them and, perhaps, even upload them to Debian (and, as a side-effect, it would be picked up by Ubuntu, Linux Mint etc).

Do you happen to have any git repository (or any other repository) where you develop the theme? I would like to submit some small changes for better maintaintenance and I would love to avoid duplicate work.


Thanks a lot,

Rogério Brito.
