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
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-Green-Dark

> Desert-Orange
> Desert-Orange-Dark

> Desert-Purple
> Desert-Purple-Dark

> Desert-Brown
> Desert-Brown-Dark

> Desert-Yellow
> Desert-Yellow-Dark

> Desert-Blue

@paulxfce I love your work. But I've been looking for something like this for a while. This is beautiful and deviates from all the osx like colors or the darker ones. Both the regular and the dark themes are pleasing to the eyes. Please don't abandon this theme. Thanks.

I fully agree with that. And it took me an insane amount of trials to get some sort of color scheme. Still, I am not really satisfied. Muted colors are by definition less crispy. So it remains a challenge.

Maybe a change in the accent color(s) could help.
Something clearer. In the likes of orange or purple maybe?
Just a thought...

With the upcoming update, I will post a version with a little less muted color for the selected items. And also 2 extra versions with orange and purple accents.

Yes, it is a challenge to find a color scheme that is not traditional black white grey.

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.

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.

Your best for me so far. Your other themes were too grey for me and looked too much like Mac. The smooth colours are just right,
