Re: March 2019 Screenshot Thread

OK so I thought I'd have a play with my exit dialogue's newly created config file...
Could be prettier, I have no talent for this stuff, just demonstrates what can be did smile

Now all I need to do is figure out how to install @hhh's theme & do something that suits it...

Download the tar.gz file...

https://github.com/hhhorb/Lithium_theme … ght.tar.gz (click the Download button on the page)

Extract the tar and move the background to ~/Pictures/wallpapers and the theme folder to ~/.themes

Set your themes and wall via the Preferences entries in the root menu (Wallpaper, Appearance, Notifications and Openbox>WM Preferences).

Profit?

Re: March 2019 Screenshot Thread

@yunn, pretty damn perfect. I love the color scheme, that highlight color is perfect, and your awesome panels. The huge folder icons are a weird flex (the color matches well, I see why you did it), but I approve of this scrot.

Re: March 2019 Screenshot Thread

My first try using oomox-gui to theme icons. BL-Archdroid, it uses the folder color from Paper icons...

(Download tar, extract tar, move the BL-Archdroid folder to ~/.icons and set the icon set with lxappearance, logout to make sure your icons are all updated.)

Indeed profit big_smile

So here's what I've done for this currently as an example of custom settings in the config:
It's aimed at BL-Moonlight and at first glance the changes are kinda subtle:
2019-03-09-16-34-43_scrot.th.png
What it took:
Noted that obconf says windows are using "Sans" `fc-match Sans` > "Noto Sans"
Set 'Noto Sans Mono' for the tooltip && 'Noto Sans Mono Bold' for the buttons.
Set the font colour matching the grey from the icons, button && tooltip.
Set the button text background to match the borders, that's the darker patch.
Pushed that whole field one character away from the icons (it sat too close).
Added one leading & trailing space to button text, the dark patch looked "wrong"  neutral
Decided I like the result cool
(Even without that the default inherited settings look pretty nice though.)

Re: March 2019 Screenshot Thread

Thank you @hhh and @Dobbie03 for your comments.

It seems that with Lithium we are going to have some very good themes.

An incredible job @hhh. smile

I think that's been the case since day dot big_smile  I totally agree though, the new crop of themes I have seen are very nice.

Still a work in progress to get 100% perfect.

Re: March 2019 Screenshot Thread

@Dobbs, looking good!

Thanks for the theming compliments, gents! The strategy has been to gradually refresh the old gtk2-engine-murrine and gnome-colors greyscale theme to a full refresh. Helium introduced Beam, which added color, and Paper icons, which added some flatness.

The new Arc/oomox themes are totally flat, no gradients or rounded progress bars like you see in the Debian installer. As you see in my scrots, I've even dropped drop-shadows in compton and am using inactive-window transparency instead. The helium themes still all work, though, so you can install something like gnome-colors, Faenza and/or Humanity icons and still have the old school look (that Mate still has, IIRC).

Ironic that to move forward in theming we've had to move back to before Windows XP, but I suppose that's the fashion industry. Cyclical, almost everything old gets revived and updated at some point.

Nah, it's the "recently educated" W10 has gone that way too, everything flat, gradients are too hard for the new "programmers"

Lol, no. And in case you weren't being sarcastic, gradients are just not the new esthetic. Android is pretty damn flat, I think Windows is just copying the trend.

Re: March 2019 Screenshot Thread

*ANDROID* was written entirely by the recently educated tongue
Distingishing "their", "there", and "they're" is thus too difficult, never mind gradients!

This scrot is showing the system info bar that's been running for quite some time - and the kickass fuzzy-clock conky.

I love the fuzzy clock - just out of interest, do you actually use it? I'm not sure I could get into the habit of reading the time like that.
