Description:

The Xfce Evolution theme attempts to rid the Xfce desktop of visual distractions by providing a more consistent look (buttons, scrollbars, menus, etc) across older and newer applications.

Blends well with 'elementary Xfce darkER' icon set and 'Noto Sans 9' fonts (see the INSTALL file in package).

-------
Based on Ambiance:gtk2, Adwaita:gtk3, and Greybird:xfwm.
Developed and tested on Xubuntu 17.04.

I suppose you mean for gtk2, right? Okay, i'll look into it.

Yes, GTK2.

Okay, fixed, and also fixed gtk2 multiple selection to make it look the same with gtk3 (removed the individual items' borders). Actually, i'm almost done with achieving all the original goals for this theme, just finished with coloring the gtk3 infobars, and probably the next release will be 4.0.0 after which i'll take a break (i have a pretty busy period ahead).

Thanks for the report, it was important for kbd-based operation.

Cheers!

3.1.9, guess it's done now, unfortunately i don't know what to do about the contrast, spacing, etc of that rectangle. When i'll have more time i'll look into it and see if there's anything that can be done to increase the contrast.

You're welcome :) Thank You for reporting the issue, i always use details-view, so i really didn't see the prob in the icon-views.

This theme produces many messages like "Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk3-def.css:3094:0: Expected semicolon"

yes, i know, they are harmless (they come from a crude way of "commenting" out lines in the css file by putting an invalid character '#' at the beginning of lines). I got this complaint also from somebody else, so i guess i'll just have to fix this :)

History file in archives 3.1.1 and 3.1.2 stops at 3.10 by the way, but thanks as always for the update!

Differences between revisions (last digit) are just bug fixes and/or simple tweaks, e.g. 3.1.2 fixed a long-standing bug which was not showing the hue and opacity sliders in the gtk3 color picker, fixed the height of buttons when inside a gtk2 notebook tab and tweaked their shades, increased the spacing between the label and the close button in gtk3 tabs, and... ummm... i don't remember what else :).

Thing is, revision bumps (last digit) are just bug fixes/tweaks which i generally don't document, minor version bumps (second digit) add new features, and major version bumps (first digit) signify [what i consider to be] important milestones.

Cheers!

THanks for changing the Greybird highlight color to the classic Greybird blue!

And how about a dark panel, by the way? :)

Dark panel is easy to do, i also thought about this, but i didn't decided yet on how to make it optional (i.e. how to allow the user to switch from light to dark). For the time being i keep it light for the sake of consistency, but i'll be thinking about this...

You're welcome, being true to the original is more important :) Anywayz, the highlight color is trivial to change by yourself, just read the INSTALL file. I didn't put so much emphasis on this (the highlight color) exactly because it's so easy to change to whatever you like.

Perfect, but colorized scrollbar?

Report

Thanks for the "perfect", i'll pretend i didn't see the "but..." :D

But seriously, i'll try to make the scrollbars tweak-able based on the canvas color. I suppose you mean just the scrollbar rail, not the slider and the buttons, right? i mean, the buttons and the slider are "button" widgets, so it would be very inconsistent to be colorized differently from the rest of the buttons.

Anywayz, the first priority for now is to fix the action buttons ("suggested action", "destructive action", etc) and the infobars ("info", "warning", "error", etc) which are currently colorized with a background color gradient for gtk3, and this s*cks
