XFCE/XFWM4 Themes

Description:

Numix Holo is a flat, slick theme containing:
- A GTK+ 2/3 theme
- An Xfce window decoration (Xfwm4) theme
- An Xfce notification style

It's a fork of Numix, but uses Android blue instead of red, hence the name. Note that unlike its parent, Numix Holo is focused only on Xfce. It does not contain a Unity, Metacity or Openbox theme.

Note: Please install this theme (or any theme) under /usr/share/themes as opposed to ~/.themes, or else root apps (like Synaptic and GPartEd) won't follow the theme.

======

A word about fonts
I personally recommend a font called Titillium Web (see screenshots) with this theme. And of course, Roboto (Android's default) looks great as well. Both fonts are free and open source, and can be found at the links below, and also at Google Fonts.

Great looking theme and the suggested fonts complement it well. Just noticed something for improvement when you have time......on a long operation....the status progress bar is not very visible....i.e. same colour as background. Otherwise.....fantastic....

Thanks for telling us where to install the themes, but why don't you tell us where to install the fonts..?!

It's the one part of the theme that destroys the whole look: https://gyazo.com/05e3b671452add5be942e6f6f0ecd6b1

Hi

Would it be possible to update it for GTK 3.14?

Thanks.

One other thing - in things like the ubuntu software manager, the white text on light grey is impossible to read. Same with other system details.

Not trying to make this theme seem bad, it's an amazing theme, just a few niggles before it's ready to be the theme I suggest to others.

Keep up the good work.

Yes, of course, there're certainly a few rough edges to polish before we can call it 1.0. Thank you for your feedback. It helps a lot.

There you go! The readability issue shoulda been solved now. And talking about apps not following the theme, Synaptic and GPartEd are root apps. So if you install the theme under ~/.themes, they won't follow. Try installing under /usr/share/themes instead, and tell me if it works now.

Ok, its any system message that isn't very readable.

Now I've tested all of my programs with this theme, its not just Synaptic, Firefox, and Gparted that don't follow the theme and look bad, but many programs.

Not criticizing the theme, I still like it, but I'd like it even more if it didn't make over half my programs look bad. :)

Hi,

One common thing about the apps you mentioned, is that all of them seem to be GTK3. So may be some tweaking is needed there.

I'll look into this. Thank you for your feedback.

Really nice theme, with a couple of annoyances.

When asking for authentication to run a program that requires root, the message text is a slightly blurry white on a grey - it is really hard on the eyes, and is also hard ro read the message.

The other thing is some programs look bad with this theme - so far, I've found Firefox, Gparted, and Synaptic all don't follow the theme and all look bad.
