Gnome-PRO-Lighterblue +
and
Gnome-PRO-Dark
Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX.

The second version of this theme is identical but with better (slightly fatter) font-rendering on the interface-elements and GTK3-app's. This should be easier on the eyes, especially on bad screens. This is experimental though, please leave comments if (or not) it actually helps...

There's a third version of this theme (Gnome-PRO-LighterBlue) which uses a softer color (4A85CB) for the selected items. (See screenshot) And, of course, this one has also a '+' version for better font-rendering
Themes now support dark mode!

And a fourth version of this theme (Gnome-PRO-Dark) which is a completely dark version of Gnome-PRO, including GTK 2-applications.

Again, I've spend an obscene amount of time perfecting this theme, so please try it and rate it...


Requirements

First, This theme only works in the gnome-desktop, with GTK 3.20 -GTK 3.24

Next, buttons should be on the right side. If they are not: here is the terminal-code:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"

When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines":

- The gnome-themes-standard package,
- The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


How to install:

Download the theme you want (Gnome-PRO, Gnome-PRO+, or Gnome-PRO-LighterBlue, or Gnome PRO-Dark))

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK-theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

Great theme, thank you!
Is there any way to get same big shadows for all windows?

Report

I know, applications that use the headerbar have bigger shadows, other use a titlebar, which is unfortunately shadowed differently. I have not found out yet, what I could do to change that.

This theme is good but I have some issue. When i set the theme with Tweak-tool background disappears and turns gray. Some stripes appear after mouse passage.
See here: https://morphisz.tumblr.com/image/164032789819
+ In nautilus, arrow buttons are very distant from the corner. Title bar is very big in some windows (any plain for a compact version?)
Arc-like buttons are not bad, but i really don't like the + maximize buttons, because remember me some old gtk themes.
Obviously these are just my opinions, thank you for sharing this theme. :-)

I've uploaded Gnome PRO+, a version with better (slightly heavier) font-rendering on the inteface-elements and GTK3-apps. This is experimental. I'm awaiting your reaction/comments on how this actually works on your screen. So please, download Gnome-PRO+, try it by comparing it with the normal version. Does it work for you?...

Works fine here. The heavier font-rendering is subtle and I like the result. BTW to avoid mantaining the lighter-blue version, you could place this little script in your archive so that users can replace the color if they want: sudo find . -name '*.*' -type f -exec sed -i 's/\#206AD9/\#4a85cb/' {} \;

uhm no, this one works better: sed -i 's/206AD9/4a85cb/g' $(find . -type f)

nevermind, my script misses something (leafpad's color is not changing, also i saw you sometimes change #e7edf1 to rgba)...

Report

It will never work, because GTK2.0 uses an image for the menu-items-hover

Ah, so the script could simply move those files from an "alt images" folder and overwrite them.

Really enjoying this theme. I hope to see more quality works by paulxfce when GTK+ 4 comes out https://blog.gtk.org/2017/08/07/progress-towards-gtk-4/

Don't get your hopes up to high... GTK4's roadmap is such that it would not be until GTK 4.6 or so, that a stable version is available (you can make a theme for GTK 4.0, only to find out that it is completely broken at GTK 4.1, and so on...) I would not hesitate trying the 'expected' blur-effect (which gives true translucency like Mac OS), something I've been waiting for.

If it wasn't for the close, minimize and maximize buttons I would totally use this... Too arc-ish to me.

tell me what you like as windows buttons, I can provide you a theme with them.

I'm not really sure... I'm more into a minimalist style, but I don't think something minimalist would match the theme, sir. Anyway, it's a nice theme! :)

product-maker fishears Jul 24 2017

Overall I'm really liking this theme. My only issue is the nautilus top bar buttons are too far from the left, like they expect me to have min/max/close over there and are leaving space for that... It feels odd when other apps have buttons in that space.
