Description:

I missed the look of my old Windows 3.1 system and so this theme was created. Take a step back in time and enjoy the nostalgia! I designed the theme to work in xfce4 however the GTK2 and GTK3 themes will work for most environments with the right settings.

To install: Download "Win3x.tar.gz" extract the archive into your themes directory.

Included: GTK2 and GTK3 themes, Xfce4 window manager themes.

New: *Program Manager script*
You will need to install pcmanfm to use the script. The script looks for application icons in the /usr/share/application directory to populate the Program Manager folders and uses pcmanfm to view the folders. After installing pcmanfm you will also want to check the option "Don't ask options on launch executable file" under Edit > Preferences > General otherwise it will ask for a confirmation each time you open one of the shortcuts. To install, extract the archive prog_man.tar.gz and run install.sh as root or using sudo as a user. View the README.txt inside the archive for more details.

** Please install the redmond95 gtk theme engine for the gtk2 theme. It is usually included in the gtk-engines package. **
** For qt5 apps to match the theme you can install qt5ct and qt5-styleplugins and then select gtk2 theme in qt5ct. **
**Make sure to set the environment variable QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME="qt5ct" for qt5 apps to use the theme.**

** Download chrome.tar.gz to get the firefox theme. Extract to your firefox profile folder eg: ~/.mozilla/firefox/[profile name]/chrome **
For those who don't want firefox tabs or use a sidebar tab plugin: use chrome.tar.gz
For those who want tabs: use chrome_with_tabs.tar.gz

A second version of the firefox theme has been added with support for tabs. It's still a work in progress so there may be some slight issues depending on your color scheme.

I'm currently trying to troubleshoot the issue, one temporary work around I found until I can fix it is to use environment variable SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk . Libreoffice has some issues with some gtk3 theme and this usually fixes the dark text on dark background.

Would it take long to make more colors? In Win3x was it possible to set more colors at that time?

That currently is in the process of being worked on it should be possible in the next release when it's finished.

More colors to be added soon. I plan to eventually cover most of the color schemes that were included with Windows 3.1

The colors of the progress bar are black writing on dark blue. I do not think that's a good idea. It's almost invisible. It had to be written white. Look here: http://s.go.ro/hgfy4hmd

Good find, it should be fixed in the next release with some other GTK2 fixes. There are also a few GTK3 tweaks on the way also.

Maybe the last problem with the progress bar is left. Look here: http://s.go.ro/wsbtmuug Written white over white background. :)

And of course you have to move the theme to the gtk3 section because it supports gtk3. Look here: http://s.go.ro/rm0us4sf
