Ver 2.5 Xfce4.13x 9 months ago

* Reworked PulseAudio panel plug-in for a much more orderly and compliant layout.
* Above panel icon size (along with clipboard and power plug-in icons) slightly reduced (15% less).
* Switch widget reworked to give a less 'bloated' look.
NOTE: PulseAudio plug-in media buttons use the 'panel.png' image not the 'button-normal.png' image.
This is an accepted compromise stemming from parent panel settings. If the normal button images are wanted
then the main Xfce panel button must be changed to 'button-normal.png'. The media buttons can be hidden
for a cleaner more compact look. :)

On my Ubuntu setup I installed Terminator but found no apparent issue as you describe. I use Xfce4-Terminal anyway, but they look the same regarding tabs, to me.

Nice! I miss the old design but I'm getting used to the new one ^^

Thank you. Theme owners are fickle beasts, always tweaking for that little extra evolution. :)
While I'm here, there is a small bug with the 'Fire' variant (I'll fix when additional changes are needed). When a window with a horizontal progress bar is backdropped (unfocused) it doesn't go from orange to monochrome as intended. Simply copy image file 'progressbar-backdrop-horiz.png' from either the blue or green variants into the 'Plasma Fire/gtk-3.0/darkelkements/' folder, over writing the existing one.
Enjoy.

Ver 2.4 Xfce4.13x optimisations 9 months ago

Panel applets appearance improved and more consistent with overall panel look.
NOTE1: Some panel applets are still GTK2 and some are GTK3. There are inherent colour
rendering differences between them leading to darker or lighter shades.
NOTE2: For best consistency, the theme's 'panel.png' image must still be selected manually via
the panel preferences for the background image.
The info-bar now has a coloured frame when active. Backdrop action button for info-bar now
correctly used (changed from 'button-normal.png').
GTK2 & 3 toolbars given a subtle gradient effect (reaction to Synaptic Package Manager GUI changes).

Ver 2.3b (corrected) 1 year ago

Update Correction 3: Firefox menu background fixed (again) added 'textview' & 'iconview' alongside all other 'views'.

1) Increased text brightness for backdrop state windows, closer to the focused state.<br />
2) Reworked check and radio items for better brightness consistency across states.<br />
3) Realignment of check and radio items across menus to reduce spacing inconsistences.<br />
4) Added extra colour definition for selected text highlighting. <br />
This now uses the main theme colour instead of greyshade.*<br />
5) Themed the gtk on/off switch and also the info-bar to blend better into the theme style.<br />
6) Improved various frames/separators to show panel sections more prominently.<br />
7) Reworked/optimised lightdm greeter theme for tidier parsing. Also increased opacity over-all.<br />
8) Fixed oddities -apparent in gedit- for header/title-bars and popovers. <br />
9) Reworked notebook tabs for better borders drawing.<br />
10) Added new desaturated active button and tab items when in backdrop state.<br />
11) Added some style fixes for firefox, e.g. menu colour and borders.<br />
12) Add colours application for gnome terminal.<br />
13) Added basic entries for gtk3 xfce4 panel.<br />
14) Added progress-bar size fixes for some xfce4 panel applets.<br />
15) Reduced scrollbar lengths to stop stepper button overlaps.<br />
16) Some padding and margin changes e.g. menubar spacing.<br />
<br />
Note: Main CSS file has been stripped down and hacked around a lot. Beware of sink holes!<br />
Improvement attempts for other bits will come when/if ever. ;-)<br />
*Some minor things still broken:<br />
Highlighted text doesn't work as expected in evolution, firefox and libreoffice, e.g. composer, searchbar.<br />
Scrollbar steppers borked in gtk3 libreoffice. Use gtk2 to work around.<br />
certainly other things too. :)

2.2 1 year ago

As of version 3.25.9x, Gnome-Evolution started displaying white borders around the search/toolbars.
Changing the colour definition: 'borders_color' to 'borders' throughout the gtk-contained-dark.css has fixed the issue.

2.1 2 years ago

ENHANCEMENTS: Search/spin button text entry areas restyled to integrate inside GTK3 header/title bars (see image #5) for unbroken visual continuity. This applies to all GTK3 applications proper. If user preferred, the V 2.0 css file is included as gtk-contained-dark-original.
FIXES: Level bar colours working correctly again on each variant (e.g. Baobab disk usage tool) and backdrop progress bar corrected on 'Fire' variant (now monochrome as intended). Returned to squared off (rectangle) style for progress bars due to scaling issues on LibreOffice (possibly others).

Ver 2.0 2 years ago

Discovered that GTK3 notebook tabs (left/right facing) were incorrect. Now fixed (hopefully).
Notebook tabs slightly reworked for better look between active and normal states and GTK2/GTK3.
Backdrop (unfocused) windows slider controls (hover/pre-light) now muted on mouse-over.

Ver 1.9 2 years ago

Reworked/styled spinner buttons/entry (separately for GTK2 & 3). Replaced arrow stepper items for GTK2 & 3 (same style). Added coloured borders to text/search entry (GTK3 only) and spinner items also. Replaced arrows in GTK2 to closely match GTK3. Fixed CSS errors preventing GTK3 backdrop changes from working (not seen with Debian!). Small tweaking of hover/prelight items for scrollbars and sliders. Borders/frames colour reduced (dimmed). Left,right and bottom active tabs now same as top active tab. Other things surely missed...
Note: Issue with widget hover function not working when running Evolution email via alltray utility is unresolved.

Small fix 18a 2 years ago

Fixed typo error at line 1140 in gtk-contained-dark.css
Fixed text brightness in lightdm-gtk-greeter.css
-------------------------------
Note: Still to come, border colour for Xfce4-notification pop up, when it works (GTK3 version) on Debian.
