Description:

This is the start of a concept for a Tron inspired theme. I've always been torn between geekery and creativity, and have also been in the position where a friend wants to you to 'show me something cool'.

We have cool stuff like XMonad and terminal awesomeness, why not make play on the strength of our more primitive CLI based roots. So I thought I'd have a bash at something command line feeling, but yet hopefully usable. I saw tron and that movie-look implausible Hollywood OS made me think...

I've started trying to implement this as a theme, but would love some help to make it happen. The stylings are simple, but I still could use a hand.

Does anyone know of a similar gtk-3 theme to match this?

there's something about the fonts:

-global-menu stucks on black fonts, rendering the applet very uncomfortable to use. It's menus are on the system colour font, aldo.

-stripes are ok, that's about the theme's idea, but the fixed font for nautilus is a little anoying, personally I have setted all my sysrem fonts to 7.5 pt, and that bigger font is not matching the all system config.

-do you think that could be a good idea making the bars dotted like the rest of the widgets?

Here a cap of my desk: http://i928.photobucket.com/albums/ad122/tangato/naut.png

I hope this suggestions help you to sharp your great theme. Regards,

tangato

To find errors in your theme, you can run The Widget Factory (twf) in a terminal, which should spit out any errors. I found it seems to be missing many images, but just because the names are not correct in the code.

Also, the inactive text looks a little unfitting to the theme, maybe try changing the engine in that part to "mist".

I can help with whatever, just let me know :)

Does the patched version of gtk2-engines-pixbuf works good? do you know something about that?

Report

Sorry, I don't know anything about pixbuf. Is it like pixmap?

Is about the engine used to draw pixmaps into GTK2 themes (I think is present into all distributions, being part of Gnome)... there is a patched version, which I never used, I was thinking you know more about... I was always skeptic about to patch Gnome, that's why I asked :)

Cheers :)

Oh, so it's the same thing?
I've never patched it, so I wouldn't know.

Yeah... I saw the proposal here...
Basically, is very simple: you get the Industrial GTK2 theme, you made a copy, named f.ex. FLYNN, you change colors, made some pixmaps (using Pixbuf Engine too) and you have a personal theme... just like you want; I don't like dark themes, this is a personal opinion about.

I'll give a try... hope have the time for.

so... maybe you'll have the theme next week?

I loved the film and this theme looks promising. I'd help out but I don't have any experience with making themes so I'll just wish you good luck with it and wait for a beta.

Hi,

It's taken a while, but it's taking shape.

Does any one know how to remove the gradients on selected items and menu bars?

The other thing I'm trying to do is a add a single pixel border to the bottom of each menu bar and the outline of drop down menus.

I'll figure it out eventually, but any help would be cool.

if you don't release the gtkrc file, we are be able to help you, because we unknow the color scheme.

So, if you want to enhance quickly your theme, you must release the gtkrc file and mark this as BETA. We look the gtkrc file and help you to fix your bug.

This is the open source filosophy. Don't ask help if you don't want to show your code because for us are impossible to help you.
