Because every detail matters.

GrayRevenge is a complete suite for GNOME 3.4. It comes with GTK2, GTK3, Metacity, Unity, Gnome-shell, Cinnamon, Xfwm themes. Slick, fast, and elegant.

WARNING: this theme works for GNOME3.4 / Ubuntu 12.04 users, but it will not work for previous versions of GNOME or Ubuntu.

All the credits to minteastwood [link] for XFWM theme. Thanks to satya164 [link] and its Orion theme for made me able to understand new GNOME 3.4 theming and release this suite.

I like this theme very much, but I could use some more gray and darkness. For the record, I'm on
Debian 7.1, xfce4.8, setup to look like gnome 2.
I used the following colors in
gtk2.0/gtkrc:
gtk_color_scheme = "bg_color:#16191a\nselected_bg_color:#7c8086\nbase_color:#333333"
gtk_color_scheme = "fg_color:#eaeaea\nselected_fg_color:#FFFFFF\ntext_color:#EAEAEA"
gtk_color_scheme = "tooltip_bg_color:#333333\ntooltip_fg_color:#EDEDED"
gtk_color_scheme = "link_color:#2677CB"                           
gtk_color_scheme = "dark_bg_color:#353535\ndark_fg_color:#EAEAEA"
and changed a bit of
gtk2.0/Apps/panel.rc:
    fg[NORMAL]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
    fg[PRELIGHT]    = Dark_fg_color
    fg[ACTIVE]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
    fg[SELECTED]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
PS: in gtk2.0/gtkrc find the row starting with 'style "treeview" {' and add after it:
    text[NORMAL]      = text_color
    text[PRELIGHT]    = text_color
    text[SELECTED]    = Selected_fg_color
    text[INSENSITIVE] = shade (0.8, bg_color)
    text[ACTIVE]      = darker (text_color)
In thunar-vcs-plugin the gtktreeview list that shows the files becomes unreadable and does not honor global text color.

Love this theme, kind of sad that nobody seems to make them with contrast like this anymore..one of the few reasons I'm still sticking it out with 12.04 :)

Are there any plans to make a theme similar to this, or maybe update this one?

THanks! And yes, as soon as they'll keep constant the api I will release a new version for newer ubuntu/gnome distros!!
But I don't even know when. Let's hope for 13.10! Or 14.4 :(
rgotolei's avatar
So Ubuntu's on a new LTS version now, GTK has only gotten ten times more insane, and it seems like it's slowly dying out anyways.

I'm guessing the chances of seeing an update at this point are pretty much zero? :(
rgotolei's avatar
Yeah, it doesn't seem like gtk's really constant from one version to the next anymore. :(
I'll be keeping an eye on this one ;) Hope to be able to use it at some point in the future.

Hello. As I said in my last journal entry, I dropped development (and support) for any gtk/wm theme I created, since gnome developers are messing around with latest releases and I don't have neither enough time nor the enough willingness to stay up-to-date with their playground and completely redesign my theme from scratch since their API broke the old one. I will start again in the moment in which gnome theming API will be more stable (hopefully, with 3.10 release in next september we will see something good :) ).

I'm thankful for your appreciation regarding the theme, but unfortunately I cannot help any more. And it's not my fault! :(

alecive's avatar
alecive Interface Designer
I wish, but it's too difficult. Maybe for 3.8 or even 3.10. I'm sorry , but gnome developers are messing around and I cannot follow their fast and disruptive development.
