PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition

Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the XFCE/Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX, in a darker version.
This is a XFCE-interpretation of my gnome-theme PRO-Dark-GTK.


IMPORTANT:

There are two versions available:
PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition-I is the older XFCE-D-PRO which works fine with thunar below version 1.8

PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition-II is the newer up-to-date version that requires Thunar 1.8 or above

This theme uses GTK 3.20+ for the gtk3-build-apps; GTK2-apps and QT-apps look virtually the same.

How to install:

Download the theme,

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Appearance/ Window-manager to select the Style.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

The standard XFWM-windowmanager is used as the compositor, With the following specific settings in the Window Manager Tweaks:
- display compositing enabled.
- Synchronize drawing to the vertical blank enabled.
- Show shadows under dock windows enabled.
Opacity of popup windows is set more to the left (more transparency): this gives the translucency under the drop down-menu's. You can move the layer more to the left for more transparency.


Comments

Please comment if you see things broken, or want differently. I will post fixes as soon as possible.

Updates:

Version II is a fully up-to-date version for the new thunar (>=1.8)
Version 1.1 includes ALL the window-control-buttons of XFCE-titlebar
Version 1.2 is build on top of ubuntu 17.10, with a new whiskermenu and solution for the awkward behaviour of the desktop-icons.
Version 1.3 completed the making of the panel and Whisker-menu. This version is made to work on Xubuntu 17.10.
Version 1.4 Fix for the desktop-icons, re-theming of Thunar in Toolbar-style, re-adjusting GTK3-theme to match GTK2, overall lighter blue-selected-color and grey-ed menu-items all look the same; Further theming of Whisker-menu: Adjusted padding and margins to make it less clunky and added text-shadows to improve the font-rendering.
Version 1.5 correcting parsing-errors.
Version 1.6 bugfixes and license-requirements

Very beautiful theme, very polished and consistent across all apps. I like the 3D look, rather than the flat themes common today. XFCE should really implement a couple of the great themes on this websites by default. The defaults all look very out-dated. Big thumbs up for this one!

Hey Paul, just so you know, I signed up in this site just to be able to praise your excellent work on XFCE and Gnome themes and maybe also because I wanted to ask you some changes for XFCE-D-PRO theme, I would like to ask you to make a version with a clear differentiation between focused and unfocused windows, maybe through the window's title text grayed out or desaturated window control buttons, I leave it to your judgement; finally, I would like to ask you as well to add a dark border to the windows in order to discern each window's area. Thank you very much in advance and for your attention and please keep up the great work.

Hi Paul, the theme is great. I'm running Xubuntu 16.04 and everything works great, but one thing: scrollbars in Firefox and Thunderbird aren't visible. I can post the screenshots somewhere if it helps you. Thanks again for great work!

Hi Paul,
I am running Xubuntu 18.04 on my Laptop.
I downloaded your theme, extract it and copied it to /usr/share/themes.
After I selected your theme and logged out and back in I noticed that the titlebar of any window isn't themed.
Is there a way to fix this? TIA

Hi, its a very good theme, thank you for it !
I suggest these modifications to gtk-3.0/gtk.css, to avoid warnings in terminal:
```

Thank you ! Also, is it normal to not have shadows under GTK2 applications menus ?

No, You should have shadowed menu's everywhere. This theme is developed under Xubuntu 17.10. Using the standard XFWM compositor.

Hi Paul!

Amazing theme, thanks for the work! I have only one issue, namely in the Window Buttons area on the panel, the background is white and the text very light grey, except for the active window, then both are white, which makes the window buttons virtually unreadable. Is there a way to fix this?

I run debian 9 "stretch" with xfce 4.12. I do not have GTK3 installed.

Uh, please disregard my previous comment, after I switched to a different colour theme and back this was resolved, now the proper colours are shown in the taskbar!
