Description:

Update 1.2: I updated the theme with several improvements including alpha support to Unity. This 1.2 version is the "Edge" Version. Due to changes in gtk engine in gnome 3.11+ this theme suffer from a bug that cut-off the buttons. A complete rewrite based on Adwaita theme is needed, since Numix also suffer from this. Be patient, I will port all the stuff according to the new stuff and luckily in some short time I'll get a new version 2. Cheers. Oh, just in case it is not clear, until that major rewrite, this work will be freezed.


This theme is for Gnome 3.10 environments. The version 1.0-1.2 works well / was tested on Gnome-Shell ONLY. So the "1.0" stable versioning is valid ONLY for Gnome 3.10+ desktops. All the other enviroments are in alpha stage. Unity support will come in the next immediate version 1.1 (which is already available in the Blumix-Edge repo thanks to Sadi -thanks man!-). It wasn't tested in cinnamon, xfce, lxde, etc... If you want to try it, do it KNOWING you MAY find weard things... please report them in order to improve the theme! :) Cheers!


Blumix Gtk Theme: Simple. Rounded. Essential. Started as a minimal Blue-ish Mod for Numix Gtk3 Theme, now, with some perspective, it's growing with its own identity. It supports gtk3.10, gtk3.6, gtk2and metacity3. Oh, yeah. The metacity is intend to be like that: minimal. Mouse over to see the buttons. :)

This work is an updated, newer, better, nicer, and more complete version of my previous work http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/%5BGtk+3.8+3.10+Theme%5D+Blumix+V0.21?content=161811

Featuring Plank Themer. So give it a try if you want. :) http://rhoconlinux.github.io/plank-themer/index.html

UBUNTU RECOMMENDED INSTALL
You can install it through a Ninja-Install, one command to apply it. In Ubuntu and derivatives open a terminal and run (will download, install and apply the theme):

[quote]mkdir -p ~/blumix-install && cd ~/blumix-install && wget https://github.com/rhoconlinux/Blumix/archive/master.zip && unzip master.zip && cd Blumix-master && sudo cp -a Blumix /usr/share/themes/Blumix1.0 && gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Blumix1.0" && gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme 'Blumix1.0' && cd ~ && rm -R ~/blumix-install/
[/quote]Oh, and dont forget to leave your impression by voting if everything went ok. :)

Install the dependences!!! Otherwise it will not work right:

[quote]sudo apt-get install -y gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf gtk3-engines-unico[/quote]

This means the theme requires murrine, pixbuf and unico engines installed on your system. If you do not have them, Firefox, Thunderbird, Libreoffice and other gtk2 programs will not draw the theme (and you will get a win95 look).

Manual install:

Download the file. Once you got it, uncompress the zip. Browse the uncompressed content and copy the folder named Blumix in /usr/share/themes/ (this will require root access). Apply it with your favourite tunning tool (gnome-tweaks, unity-tweak, ubuntu-tweak... etc.). If you can't see properly some apps read the note above... probably you should install the required engines to make it work. You can also pass by and give a like in deviant-art and fork/clone it in github if you feel so. If you see anything odd, please report a bug (in github) or drop a comment down there.

Changelog V1.0 (yey!) [Feb. 2014]
New revisited Gtk3 theme: Now focused on gtk3.10 (no further development for previous gtk versions -3.6, 3.8-, sorry). New toolbars, Headerbars, Buttons, new buttons-headers-indicators-checks rounding (all over to gain coherence), new neat scrollbars, fixed distances, early version of animations. Several detail focused fixes.
New Gtk2 theme, massively reworked: *scrollbars *buttons focus *separators (now are transparent! ^_^) *Handlers (Transparent) *Incresed integration *Libreoffice integration *Menu-button policy *Use of pixmap to force fixing some stuff
New Window Borders: Focused (unfocused) effect, rounding, lateral borders fix, new buttons, elements ported to svg.
First granite wigets integration (Elementary OS). New tabs, colors and stuff. :P

Nautilus: complete rework. Now it is minimal. But really minimal. (oh!... and usable too!).
New dependences. Now requires an additional engine to draw pixmaps (besides murrine). In ubuntu, run in a terminal the following line in order to install it: sudo apt-get install -y gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf gtk3-engines-unico

I totally agree with the tabs observation: in fact it become a high priority thing to review for the next release. This was clearly a transitional concept that more or less "worked". In favor of them, I probable may say that in granite-based apps looks a lot better. Any ideas are more than welcome, I'm thinking on "buttons over flat" stile, getting rid of the traditional squared form. :)

One small gripe: Looks like it (deliberately?) does not have the window buttons. I'm using it with the borders for MediterraneanDark in Cinnamon/Mint 16.

Thanks!
Yeap, in fact it is on purpose. The borders are ment to be flat. The idea is that you know where your buttons are, so just click there when it's needed. In the meantime, clean borders. I understand, however, that may be not of your taste, so I'll add an alternative window border in order to show the buttons by default.

This is actually a thing that already some people mentioned in earlier releases. The work is almost done to "solve it", so if you want to be in the latest news, I'll recommend you to follow the daily-weekly repo https://github.com/rhoconlinux/Blumix-Edge/tree/master/Blumix-Edge (which has all the things, even the broken ones, and a very early version of this issue available).

Obviously you can use it with your favorite window border from other theme! :)

And yeah, that icons are epic! ^_^

Thank you for commenting!
