Vertex - Theme by horst3180 Vertex - Theme by horst3180
Vertex GTK theme contains three variants: Vertex (dark header-bars and toolbars), Vertex-Light (completely light) and Vertex-Dark (completely dark).

This theme supports Gnome 3.10, 3.12, 3.14, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.10 and Elementary OS Freya. Also the tabs you are seeing in nautilus, gedit, etc. are only included in the Gnome 3.12 and above versions due to the reworked tab system.

For Elementary OS Freya, please use the 3.12 version.

Chrome/Chromium and Frefox themes are included.


Requirements

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


For installation instructions please read the included README, especially the troubleshooting section if you have any issues. If this doesn't fix your problem file a bug report.


If you have problems with sublime text download this link and make sure to read the included instructions first.

If Gnome-Shell crashes with this theme, have a look at READMEs troubleshooting section.


Get the latest version at Github. But beware this contains untested changes and may break.

horst3180 ,

I having issue with "Synaptic Package Manager"... on top of synaptic (toolbar)  there is light dark beside the "quick filter" and "search" button. To fix this i'm adding "GtkHandleBox" in.... (under folder gtk-3.0)

1) ---> gtk-widgets.css

GtkHandleBox,
.toolbar {
    border-style: none;
    border-color: borders;
    padding: 4px 5px 4px 5px;
    background-color: theme_bg_color;
}

2) ---> gtk-widgets-darker-overrides.css

GtkHandleBox,
.toolbar {
    border-color: Dark_borders;
    background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom,
                                      MetaCity_bg_b,
                                      MetaCity_bg_b);
    background-color: theme_bg_color;
    color: Dark_fg_color;

}

3) --->  gtk-widgets-dark-overrides.css

GtkHandleBox,
.toolbar {
    border-color: Dark_borders;
    background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom,
                                      MetaCity_bg_b,
                                      MetaCity_bg_b);
    background-color: theme_bg_color;
    color: Dark_fg_color;

}

...but not sure if this will affect others apps GUI...em i doing the right thing by adding those line...?

edit: attached ss

edit2:

i)- GTK+ 3.14 just landed on Freya...remove the gnome 3.12 and copy the gnome 3.14 to theme folder. So far so good but one need to log out/in to take affect. Will report back if found any glitch/issue...btw for the synaptic issue i just change the 2 css files, gtk-widgets-darker-overrides.css and gtk-widgets-dark-overrides.css by adding GtkHandleBox...

ii)- On Freya the menu pop-up (on top right wing-panel ie: power button, notification, wifi etc) are not align...the position of the menu pop-up almost touch the very right screen.

iii)- ss for more details...on Pantheon-File the "Home" icon seems a little bit flat but the rest icons looks okay. On side note the pop-up menu most of them look bigger than usual...

ps- i'm using the latest theme from Github

Hi, I recently restrucutred the whole 3.14 theme and ported it to Sass (like Adwaita). The whole thing is in the "sass-port" branch on my github and is supposed to replace master when it's sufficiently tested.
If you want you can test it. The issues you described should be fixed there along with much better elementary support.

Hello, i just tested/installed the "sass-port"...as far as i can tell you its working fine and indeed its solved my previous issues (as posted above). Thank you for your hard works, kudos ;)

edit: Not sure if this a bug or by design...open Pantheon-File >> right click any (folder/file etc) >> select properties >>  the descriptions box look huge ( see ss attached with "red square box" for more details )

edit 2: Another issue on Maya-calendar (greyish background)...see ss attached

edit 3: Adjusting the  opacity on Pantheon-Terminal doesn't get any affect but work with default theme and from Vertex theme "master"...ss Vertex-Dark (sass-port) vs Elementary default theme

If you try with ubuntu 15.04 where gtk 3.14 landed on primary repositories, window decorations have following problem attached on picture (unity improvements also gone when you try with gnome 3.14 folder in vertex theme package);

I just added Unity support to the git version of the theme. I don't know if it works because I just copied the css files from the 3.12 version.

how to install the firefox and chrome theme?
Reply
:iconstorm119:
storm119 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014
There are instructions included inside the zip file (do read first)...for firefox you need to copy ---> Images (folder), userChrome.css and userContent.css (from Firefox/Vertex-Dark etc) to your default profile ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/ .... restart firefox but make sure you select default firefox theme or else you will see weird GUI and make sure to delete those file if you planing to install another theme such as from Firefox addons coz the *.css will override the theme.

HTH

ps- horst3180 thx for the update...btw just ignore my previous question coz its nothing to do with your theme...actually the icons pack ( i've installed) did effect the notification...unless if you planing to include on your package to override them.... ;)

Tonito1 you need to change few lines in softwarecenter.css >  /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css
open terminal > sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css

....edit this line....
@define-color light-aubergine #222222; <----- change from #DED7DB
@define-color super-light-aubergine #555555; <------ change from #F4F1F3

save and exit...open software center again. You can play around the colour to your liking ;).
HTH

Btw... horst3180 , i found the bubbles notifications that appear on top right to dark and unreadable. Any chances you can point me to the right direction on how to change the bubbles colour...?

TIA

Hi,
I have pushed a fix for the notification bug to github. They are now light, because I can't change the font to a different color. See here for details.

:iconstorm119:
storm119 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2014
Just checked at github...now the bubbles more light and almost like the original theme. I'm also playing around but i'm also couldn't find the appropriate code for changing the "font colour" in "gala notification" (thinking on filing a bug but will ask on G+ first)...btw i changed mine to as below code, not perfect but at least still readable... :)

.gala-notification {
    border-width: 0;
    border-radius: 4px;
    background: rgba(000,000,000,0.6);
}
...and disable background-color, background-image and box-shadow on .gala-notification

Hi,
I just found the right selector in the gala source. It is

.gala-notification .title, .gala-notification .label {}

Here is the new notification style: link  It now looks like the osd widget in totem.

aahhhh...thx mate. I just about to fiddle around and stumbled to /usr/share/gala ... but seems you faster than me...LoL!!!

Btw...this is the best (period!) and awesome theme for eOS Freya. kudos!!!!.

ps: will keep you posted... ;)

ps: 1- any chances to make the icon on the bubble/notification/gala ie: wifi/volume more bright/visible because mine a little bit darker cant see it...?

Hm, I assume the icons are part of the elementary icon theme and the gtk theme has no influence on their appearance. I'll have a look at this.

Im on Freya too, and all seems ok, except that on the "Software Center" the text color is white as the background. And all the notifications have the text gray as the background. Is the same happening to you?

Very Beautiful and cool theme!
My only problems are some buttons and the scrollbars from Firefox being like "default mode" where they are all windows 95's style

Update: Fixed by installing the "gnome-themes-standard" package ^^

Hello,
First of all thank you for great theme. Applied to newly installed Ubuntu 14.10 and it looks perfect. I have two questions/issues:
1. Unity launcher hasn't change.
2. Titlebar buttons placed in left up conner while I see they can be in the right up.
Tried to change it using tweak tools but without success... Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hi,
it looks like you are missing the required theming engines. Please install the murrine and the pixmap engines. For the exact package names search through the repos of your distro. Install gnome-themes-standard too, if you havent already.

Also see the screenshot in my gallery for a view of the desktop environment. I'm very dumb when it comes to taking screenshots of elements of themes so please excuse the lack of layout.

What I mean is, is there a way in your code to at least make them square and lose the big margin/padding left and right? Thanks!
