Ceti by horst3180 Ceti by horst3180

The GTK3 theme supports Gnome 3.8, 3.10 and 3.12, but the Gnome Shell theme only works on 3.10 and 3.12. Also the tabs you are seeing in nautilus, gedit, etc. are only for Gnome 3.12 due to the reworked tab system in this version.

A Chrome/Chromium theme is included.


gnome-themes-standard package for the GTK3 theme. Murrine and pixbuf engines for the GTK2 theme.

For installation instructions please read the included README.

There are a few bugs in Ceti now, after some gnome updates were available -- at least in Arch repos. It is something related to GDK pixbuf. A lot of programs are having issues. All subsequent windows and menus (and I don't know what else) comes without any decoration, flat, almost impossible to use.

Here is something I found out while searching about the problem:…

And here are some outputs from ST2, while calling it directly from the console:

(sublime_text:11761): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_get_pixels: assertion 'GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed

(sublime_text:11761): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_get_rowstride: assertion 'GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed

(sublime_text:11761): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_get_n_channels: assertion 'GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed

(sublime_text:11761): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_get_pixels: assertion 'GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed

That is a bug of libpng and/or sublime I suppose and affects only gtk2 from what i know. I made a workaroud for sublime here link so it works with pixmap themes again. But it's only a workaraound and should be fixed upstream.

thanks a lot! i did know it was a libpng bug, I'm sorry for saying the bug was in the Ceti theme - english is not my best sometimes :) btw, the patch works perfectly, thanks a lot!

When installing system wide in /usr/share/themes, I observe that file permissions need to be modified in order to be readable for all users.

Looks great! 

My problem with it is the tab design, the dark should be the inactive.

Does this include a dark theme? I know its dark already, but I prefer no white space XD
