Damn, I'm really sorry for your time ...

It compiled flawlessly indeed when I got into the right directory :)
What tricked me here, is that there wasn't the usual be prefix in the filename :D - Dec 01 2011
Not sure what's wrong but it's not compiling. I put the output there

The previous version was compiling fine as far as I remember :) - Nov 30 2011

I think I got what you mean. I'll probably take a working KDE icon theme, and start replacing some of the icons, by my own, I shouldn't have much trouble this way :) - Jun 14 2010
I'm very glad you like them :) I tried to keep them sharp down to 32px. That's one of the guidelines :) Can you give me an example of a filetype with more than one extension ?

Thanks for your comment ! - Jun 13 2010

Thank you for your support ! It's much appreciated ;) - Dec 12 2009

If you're talking about the icon theme, I just have no time at the moment to work on it I'm afraid :( Plus, I might have completely lost all those icons ... I'm sincerely sorry :(

Best regards,

Thanks ! In fact you just need to extract the second Abstract2 folder (the one which contains gtk-2.0 and metacity folders) to your ~/.themes . If you don't want to mess with invisible folders, you can also, unpack that Abstract2 folder (still the same one) and tar.gz it with file-roller. Then all you have to do is drag'n drop it to the theme window (I assume that's what you're used to do).

Best regards - Sep 09 2009
Thanks for the report, I'll try to fix this, though I don't have at the moment any clue about how to solve this. About the panel, it was a deliberate choice. I could else use the toolbar button, else the taskbar ones. But the taskbar ones were behaving strange with the menu applet. You can have a look at the preview there (first one), to see how it was before. I definitly prefered the older look.

Thanks again ! ;) - May 15 2009
Merci ;) I try to :) - May 10 2009
Yeah, sure. The font is HeldustryFTVDemi. You can find it here ;) - May 10 2009
I'm sorry but these icons are not available yet. I'm working on them at the moment ;) - May 09 2009

It should work, if you set the paths manually. Just extract the dekorator archive somewhere, and in the dekorator configuration panel set the paths for deco, mask (check use masks) and buttons ;) - Aug 30 2009

Tu es le deuxième français ( et aussi la deuxième personne ) à ne pas aimer la couleur ( cf ). J'essaye actuellement de le recoloriser ( cf version grise ). J'en ai aussi fait une version bleu pale. Il faudrait une version claire et une version plus sombre :) - Jun 11 2009
Thanks for the kind words, and also for faving it ;) - Jun 11 2009
Thanks a lot again, that's where I'm heading ;) - Jun 11 2009
Well I spent quite a long time polishing it, especially the comboboxes, the panelbuttons, checkboxes and the contrasts. This is by far my most complete theme, and the cleanest one (no errors output in twf). Thanks for your support ;) - Jun 10 2009
I'm really pleased you like this theme. The color scheme is rather special, and it's not like everybody appreciate it ;) I'm thinking about doing an alternate version. - Jun 10 2009
Thanks, I'm really glad you like it and added it to your fav :) - Jun 09 2009

Well I'm glad you appreciate it :) I'm just not sure about which theme you're talking about...

Thanks :D I've nearly finished working on the mimes, reworked the folder icons, did half of the actions, and started emblems and status. You can have a look at the actual work over there ;)

You know I'm sure you can make a GTK skin much more closer to the original then the QT one. If you need a view of the different widgets, you can have a look over there ;) Good luck for the port :) - Jun 09 2009

This is shaping better and better ;) One last suggestion, and one of my guidelines when I draw some gtk themes (at least in my recent ones) : If you want to give the components a sharper look, there is a simple rule to follow. I see you use a black outline for your buttons for example. If you were using both a black outline and a whiter outline (see for example. Look mostly for tabs, notebook and buttons) I think the overall theme would look a bit cleaner ;)

Thanks again for listening to me :)

Best regards,

Thibaut - Jun 02 2009
I'm really glad I could be of help ;) By notebook I was meaning that large frame which comes right under the tabs, because the file corresponding is often named so. It's not that its colors contrast too much, but the frame will contain all that range of colors (from white to blue), which is rather wide. So you should check that every components (checkbox, buttons, frames) are still visible :) You choosed a dark font color, which is good because it'll always be readable ;) - May 31 2009
Maybe you should decrease the white blend slightly on the notebook (I think) image file ? I also think that the disabled entries are given too much contrast(dark grey against light blue). Maybe you should give them the same look as the active one, but with a much brighter font color. Also, what about giving that progressbars a little more relief on the through part( white one ), you could do this with one or 2 blends. These are just suggestions :) Keep up ;) - May 31 2009

Thanks for listening to me. I think we both learned something out of this. - May 23 2009
I see the litigation is more about what the section 5 allows one to do or not.

"Section 5 implicitly states that I, or anyone else for that matter, has the right to do so"

Could you quote the explicit part of section 5 you're referring to ?

"Section 7 allows to make additional terms so long as those terms do not impede on section 5."

Can you quote for this one too ?

Why should anyone add any "valid" additional terms to the License if it can be superseded by the section 5, transforming therefore this more restrictive license into classical GPL ?

I think this should clear things up. - May 23 2009
I absolutly don't think removing this theme would be a good idea. Think about people who use it. In my opinion, it's more important for people to know where the original work comes from. That's what was done here for kimmik's port of kore from domino to GTK - May 23 2009
I agree, the 7 cannot supercede the 5th point. Actually 5th and 7th works together, as you can see by the b and c point of the 5th. The 4th may be superceded by the 5th (b point). Let's be clear, I never said that you couldn't release it under GPL. I said you should give credits to the original author. By the c point, the License (GPL) apply along with any applicable section 7 additional terms to the whole of the work. The License = The original GPL license + additional terms. The license remains GPL, so this IS NOT a violation of the GPL. The original kore work has been conveyed to you with 2 additional terms, respectively the b and c point of the 7th section. So yes you can release it under GPL (you even have to, or to any compatible license), but you have to comply with the original terms. You're talking about further copyright compliant requirements, actually the further applies to non permissive additional terms which are not declared in the GPL licence. The additional terms specified in the original artwork are supplements. They are valid and should be taken into account at the point 5. That's good that you're citing the 10th point but don't forget that the license is GPL + additional terms as stated before (see beginning of 7th point). Additional terms are included in the license. Therefore you HAVE to give credits.

Personnal question : What is so important about that work ? Why can't you create your own original one ? if you need help designing I'm sure lots of people are willing to help you, and the project, including me. Once again, it's not against you, but this is definitly not the good way of acting. - May 23 2009
By the 7th article of the GPL :

"“Additional permissions” are terms that supplement the terms of this License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions. Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by this License without regard to the additional permissions.

When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work, for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:"

by the b point of the same article, the author added as an additional term :


Publish parts of my skin without giving proper credit."

"b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal Notices displayed by works containing it"

Therefore if the original author asked for credits in the use of his artwork, you MUST credit him.

and by the c point, the author stated :


Publish parts of my skin, as a completely new project, EVEN if you give credit."

which if you look at the c point

"c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in reasonable ways as different from the original version;"

is a reasonnable additional term.

The original Kore is under GPL of course, but it has 2 additional terms you should take in account.

Look, I've got nothing against you personnaly or the GnoMenu project, it's just that in my opinion you should give credits wherever it's due.
- May 22 2009
What about crediting code2's original artwork ?
You should really have a look at its licence agreements :


Publish parts of my skin without giving proper credit.
Publish parts of my skin, as a completely new project, EVEN if you give credit."

Just to let you know... - May 21 2009

Well it uses only "pixmap" and "mist" engines, but it seems there are issues when using it on Ubuntu. But if it doesn't show up in the list, I don't think it's an engine problem. Did you unpack all the themes ? or just the big folder containing the 4 archives and the wallpaper folder ? Maybe check your installation and if it's not the problem, I'll help you further ;) - Jan 17 2009
Well I'll see if I can make something looking close to this under QT, maybe with QTCurve and an associated color scheme ;) - Jan 17 2009
Well, I'll see if I can make a more compact version of this theme, taking ASN as a basis ;) Sorry for the misunderstanding... - Jan 16 2009
What about making an alternate version, where I would change the color of the font : Strong white for the darker, strong black for the whiter ? - Jan 07 2009
Thanks a lot for the fav ;) - Jan 07 2009
Look, I don't really have the feeling this talk is leading anywhere...

My toolbar is definitly bigger, I guess 24x24 against 10x10 or something. You got that right, but what's the point anyway ? Minimalism notion isn't anything binary. This is not because your given examples are more minimalist (by your conviction) that this theme is not... Tell me, what do you want exactly ?
By my conviction something minimalist is something like you said without all the "glitz" around. - Jan 07 2009
Well well, here they are :

I can't agree with you on the scrollbar, neither on the buttons. I don't know, just fire up twf and you'll see. That's the same. Plus, the size of the button depend of the font size. I think we don't have the same notion of what minimalism is. For me, this is this kind of thing :

- Jan 06 2009
That's right, it's straight. No decorations, just a bit of style and contrast too ;) - Jan 06 2009
Thanks, the white theme needs a rework on the menu at least I think. I didn't updated the page, but I ported the Xfce windeco theme to Metacity, so now it's also possible to use it completly under gnome. - Jan 06 2009
