Description:

Desert


Made by Paulxfce


This is the first theme in which I tried not to use white and grey, but a muted yellowish-dark-brown color palet.
Designed to be light, crisp, and simple, this theme is thoroughly built and tested to provide a nice desktop environment.


The theme only provides a GTK3-theme, with dark-support, and a matching gnome-shell. It is built for the Gnome-DE.

Updates

40 Added two colored (blue and teal) themes with support for gnome 40 and GTK4
1.3-B Added one theme with support for XFCE 4.16 , with basic GTK2 support (see last screenshots)
1.3 Major refinements and polishing to make it perfect. Introduction of new colors.
1.2 update to correct padding in nautilus pathbar
1.1 update gives two new accent-colors (orange and purple), matching gnome-shells and a solid (non-transparent) version of each variant. So now there are 12 themes to choose from.

Important:

This theme is developed for the gnome DE. It works on GTK3.22 to GTK3.29, and GTK3.32/34/36/38, NOT GTK 3.30.
There is no support for other DE's and Gtk-2.0. There is, however one theme with XFCE(4.16)-support (and GTK2) available

How to install:

Download the theme of your choice

> Desert-Teal-Blue
> Desert-Teal-Blue-Dark

> Desert-Green

> Desert-Purple
> Desert-Purple-Dark

> Desert-Brown
> Desert-Brown-Dark

> Desert-Yellow
> Desert-Yellow-Dark

> Desert-Blue
> Desert-blue-dark

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use the Tweak Tool and select the theme.

9 This is a really nice theme. Are you planning on bringing support for the other colors version on GNOME 40 as well?
By the way, I find it annoying and don't know if it happens with somebody else, but when I hover stuff like the side bar on Nautilus, the entries might get highlighted even though the mouse isn't hovering them anymore.

10 Congratulations on thema, I like the brown of the Desert orange, there are 2 things that can be improved.
1 - maximize, minimize and close buttons, disappear when the screen is out of focus.
2 - Nautilus at 50% of the list size is strange.
I hope to be contributing and thank you very much for thema.

8 When opening more than two tabs in gnome-terminal, the tabs exceed the window frame to the left, any fix?

The new colors for gnome 40 are no longer brown-ish. More blue... Is that on purpose? I think the old colors were better...

The colors for the light version are the same. The dark version is less brown.

10 This is one of the best GNOME themes out there. It really is. I would say this was made carefully and with great effort. In a computer display standard, this fits perfectly. Well done, PaulXFCE.

10 Thank you! I was hoping to make it xfce compatible. Now lets hope you make the dark version compatible too. Improvements for GTK2 would be also welcome. But it is still a solid 10 for me.

10 the best. Congratulations and thank you for this new version ! I've been waiting for an amber or champagne version for a long time. A suggetion concerning the dark version, I find that the lettering is too bright, "too white". I would have seen something similar to your "Alu-Night-straight" or "Cameo-ALU-Night" version, ie softer, less white, less contrasting lettering.
