The theme is now broken with GTK 3.12.

So how are things shaping up for using the theme with GTK+ 3.10?

I would really appreciate some information on this as it is the main thing keeping me from upgrading my Arch install.

So I just went and finally got my updates and was pleasantly surprised to find that nothing seems to be broken when it comes to any of my GTK3 applications even though they are now using GTK 3.10.

Sorry stupid question of me, you are running Gnome 3 in Fallback mode right or is it called Classic mode nowdays?

Report

Actually, I run the theme with Xfce and LXDE. So the GTK2 one is my main one, with GTK3 theming only being used for my GTK3 applications (primarily Audacious, Gnome Mplayer, Gedit, some newer system configuration GUIs, and the few other Gnome applications I still use).

The odd GTK3 menu behaviour, should now be fixed, wich should affect the NM-Applet issue.

Regarding to the right click issue with gedit seems to be a gedit bug, Adwaita, Zukitwo, and others seem to have this issue as well, i would state that as a gedit bug.

When i tried this theme in XFCE i found out that GTK2 menuitems are smaller than the GTK3 ones, i personally would like to increase xthickness & ythickness with 1px to keep semi-consistency with the GTK3 counterparts.

I don't know what you would like of this, so i left that one out for the moment, meaning no change.

Also i would really recommend trying out the Cinnamon desktop with Nemo filebrowser, and xfce4-terminal, but it's all up to you, but i fell direcly in love with it since day one.

Thanks for being such a great supporter, and i will always appreciate your reports =D

Thanks for all your work, that does appear to have fixed the problem.

Regarding desktops, the main reason I am on Xfce is that I use Zaphod Mode for handling my two monitors, and other than KDE it is the only one that handles it properly.

Besides, I have now gotten myself quite comfortable with it, although interestingly I use certain LXDE applications (lxrandr, lxterminal, lxtask) to round out the desktop instead of using the prescribed Xfce tools.

Regarding the menus, consistency is what we have always strived for, so try it.

Try this metacity theme togheter with Adwaita Elements http://jamiepgs.deviantart.com/art/Cleaner-Adwaita-Buttons-268982576

Yes it will not blend in perfecly, but those captions is the ones i want, though porting the metacity theme will be alot of work, for me atleast, since it does not use pixmaps.

If anyone would help me out i would love it, perhaps ask the designer, but this is just to much work for me.

I will try though, but any help would be great

The thing is this, my Metacity theme is written in Metacity 1.x code, and the wonderful adwaita theme is written in metacity 2.x code, i know it sounds odd,

Anyhow i cannot simply copy & paste the window captions from the new Adwaita theme, since it will not work togheter with metacity 1.x code since it's not compatible.

And i cannot take my code in the new Adwaita theme since it's not compatible with metacity 2.x 3.x code.

So my only option is this take the new Adwaita theme, learn the new code, and start over theming it to look like the old one, with just newer captions.

And that's why it's so hard, but i will try and see were it goes.

I have tried to contact the author to the theme Cleaner Adwaita Buttons, asking for help to port those captions to this theme.

Sorry to keep harping on about this, but I did truly prefer the older thicker application menu bars. While the new ones are at least consistent between GTK2 and GTK3, which has been my main complaint before, I must admit to not taking much of a shine to the constrained text spacing on the newer, shorter ones.

Report

You did not miss a difference between GTK2 and GTK3, I just dislike the new shorter height. I notice that in LibreOffice no matter what the height is 25px, so maybe we could settle on that, just to make everything consistent.

Hey i did not hear back from you, do you still have the issues with the menus? i do not myself have them, since i run cinnamon. You are running classic mode right? just give me a shout and i will try to reproduce you'r issue and try to find a solution.

Don't worry keep reporting errors, i will certainly look into this, there's just old code from the old Adwaita Elements merged togheter with Clearlooks-Phoenix and, there's horizontal & vertical paddings specified in the menuitem property at the same time there's only a vertical padding specified in the menubar property, making things messy sometimes.

The theme does indeed need a clean up, but i will look into the issue and keep reporting until you are satisfied =D *I'll try to see if i can look into this tonight*

Thanks for using my theme.
