Gray Revenge - 1.7 by alecive Gray Revenge - 1.7 by alecive
************************************************

Because every detail matters.

GrayRevenge is a complete suite for GNOME 3.4. It comes with GTK2, GTK3, Metacity, Unity, Gnome-shell, Cinnamon, Xfwm themes. Slick, fast, and elegant.

WARNING: this theme works for GNOME3.4 / Ubuntu 12.04 users, but it will not work for previous versions of GNOME or Ubuntu.

All the credits to minteastwood [link] for XFWM theme. Thanks to satya164 [link] and its Orion theme for made me able to understand new GNOME 3.4 theming and release this suite.

I like this theme very much, but I could use some more gray and darkness. For the record, I'm on
Debian 7.1, xfce4.8, setup to look like gnome 2.
I used the following colors in
gtk2.0/gtkrc:
gtk_color_scheme = "bg_color:#16191a\nselected_bg_color:#7c8086\nbase_color:#333333"
gtk_color_scheme = "fg_color:#eaeaea\nselected_fg_color:#FFFFFF\ntext_color:#EAEAEA"
gtk_color_scheme = "tooltip_bg_color:#333333\ntooltip_fg_color:#EDEDED"
gtk_color_scheme = "link_color:#2677CB"                           
gtk_color_scheme = "dark_bg_color:#353535\ndark_fg_color:#EAEAEA"
and changed a bit of
gtk2.0/Apps/panel.rc:
    fg[NORMAL]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
    fg[PRELIGHT]    = Dark_fg_color
    fg[ACTIVE]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
    fg[SELECTED]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
PS: in gtk2.0/gtkrc find the row starting with 'style "treeview" {' and add after it:
    text[NORMAL]      = text_color
    text[PRELIGHT]    = text_color
    text[SELECTED]    = Selected_fg_color
    text[INSENSITIVE] = shade (0.8, bg_color)
    text[ACTIVE]      = darker (text_color)
In thunar-vcs-plugin the gtktreeview list that shows the files becomes unreadable and does not honor global text color.

Love this theme, kind of sad that nobody seems to make them with contrast like this anymore..one of the few reasons I'm still sticking it out with 12.04 :)

Are there any plans to make a theme similar to this, or maybe update this one?

THanks! And yes, as soon as they'll keep constant the api I will release a new version for newer ubuntu/gnome distros!!
But I don't even know when. Let's hope for 13.10! Or 14.4 :(

So Ubuntu's on a new LTS version now, GTK has only gotten ten times more insane, and it seems like it's slowly dying out anyways.

I'm guessing the chances of seeing an update at this point are pretty much zero? :(

Yeah, it doesn't seem like gtk's really constant from one version to the next anymore. :(
I'll be keeping an eye on this one ;) Hope to be able to use it at some point in the future.

Hello. As I said in my last journal entry, I dropped development (and support) for any gtk/wm theme I created, since gnome developers are messing around with latest releases and I don't have neither enough time nor the enough willingness to stay up-to-date with their playground and completely redesign my theme from scratch since their API broke the old one. I will start again in the moment in which gnome theming API will be more stable (hopefully, with 3.10 release in next september we will see something good :) ).

I'm thankful for your appreciation regarding the theme, but unfortunately I cannot help any more. And it's not my fault! :(

I'm no expert when it comes to themes, but isn't this happening because there is no gtk-2.0/Styles/Tabs folder in the theme?

Basically, it looks like those images are missing in the download?

:iconalecive:
alecive Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012   Interface Designer
Yes. But the problem is that in the new version there isn't the need for this folder since I should have dropped its dependence.

Awesome theme. About the best I was able to find. Still don't like the small differences between gtk2 and gtk3 apps' looks, but at least everything looks similar and aesthetically satisfying. Haven't had that feeling since Equinox Evolution became useless because of gtk3 release.

GTK+ 3.6 seems to have another theme format or something. Button and menu backgrounds are mess after the update.

Yes I'd have to to the porting. But unfortunately for the lack of spare time I have to wait until I will release the new version of AwOken icon them and the gtk 3.6 porting of ANewStart theme. So, probably, I will get a new version of GrayRevenge only with the next 3.8 release of gnome.

I'm very sorry but due to the lack of time I cannot be up-to-date with the mess that gnome is doing in this period :(

I really like this theme as it reminds me of Evolution Equinox in terms of color and style. I did encounter a bug where the drop down menu for the search bar in Firefox is white, making it unreadable. Will there be other colors for the colored elements, or will it only be the teal-ish color it is now?

Regarding the color, probably I will release something in the future, but I cannot ensure you anything since gnome is messing a lot with theme specifications and I'm not sure if I can get a big number of themes to manage :(

That's because you only saved the theme for your user account and not the root account. Copy and paste the themes from your ~/.themes/ directory to /root/.themes/ , the same applies for icons.

Great theme!
Possible "improvement" suggestions:
1) To have a slightly lighter background in the active panel when Nautilus switches to dual panel mode (F3)
2) Title bar buttons: red, yellow, green
3) Colour options in addition to the current dark green (although it can be easily tweaked)
Thank you!
