I like it. I also like the icons. I wish you could finish and release them. Thank you for your work.

3.16 looks great. This is very nitpicky but I do miss the old min/max/close hovers though these new ones are obviously more informative.

I wanted to get away from the mac-ish style and, as you already said, it's now more obvious what the buttons do.

I just had no other idea when I made the icons. I thought "just make a traffic light and come back to it later", but that never happened until now.

Ich kann es einfach nicht zum laufen bringen :'(
Ich versuch es mit dem Gnome Tweak Tool zu aktivieren, die Ordner sind bereits in den ~/themes Ordner kopiert aber es wird nichts im drop down Menü angezeigt, weder im GTK+ noch für das Shell theme. Vielleicht habe ich ja die Anleitung falsch verstanden.

Verwende GNOME 3.10. Mit Ceti hatte ich dasselbe Problem.

Meinst du wirklich ~/themes oder hast du dich verschrieben? Der richtige Ordner wäre ~/.themes. Am besten wäre es aber wenn du das theme systemweit installiert.
Wenn du die .zip Datei entpackt hast, dann mache folgendes:

cd /pfad/zu/vertex___theme_by_horst3180-d7s7ycx/Gnome-3.10_Ubuntu-14.04
sudo cp -r Vertex /usr/share/themes/
sudo chmod -R 755 /usr/share/themes/Vertex

cd /pfad/zu/vertex___theme_by_horst3180-d7s7ycx
sudo cp -r Vertex-Gnome-Shell /usr/share/themes/
sudo chmod -R 755 /usr/share/themes/Vertex-Gnome-Shell

Die ersten drei Befehle installieren das Gtk theme. Für die Light und Dark Varianten musst du Vertex duch Vertex-Dark bzw. Vertex-Light ersetzen. Die letzten drei Befehle installieren das Gnome-Shell theme.

Loving this! The FF theme actually mostly works in Windows FF as well, which I like- consistency of look when I am using the same program on different platforms is nice. Any chance of a version that's specifically for Windows FF? Seems to be mostly a problem of missing components because some parts of the window are handled by other parts of the theme in Linux, but not in Windows; I just don't know which elements to transplant. I will use it either way, though-all the top elements work beautifully.

Yeah, the firefox theme is relying on the rest of the theme at the moment. I'll see if I can do anything about that.

I am using Elementary OS Freya with the prefer dark theme ON and dark variant of Vertex for metacity.
The Play/Pause, Next and Previous buttons are not visible for apps in the sound menu.
Is there a way to fix this?

(I hope you get what I am saying because elementary isn't allowing me to take a screenshot with a panel menu open.)

I fixed it, the buttons are now visible but they look like crap in the dark variant. I guess they don't play well with dark themes. Dark elementary theme has the same problem.

For the fix, install the latest version from github and make sure to read the instruction in the README.md file, because the theme has to be built by a script when installing from git.

Applied the fix and at least I got the buttons. They sure are ugly though.

But theme is flawless otherwise. Thanks!

Thanks. I've seen that the bug is fixed in a newer version of the indicator-sound package, but Freya still has an older version. Maybe they will update this before the final release.

I noticed a small issue with the most recent update. Looks like menu items are disappearing, seems to affect the ones with a checkbox option. I made a short video showing the issue. --> deadcows.org/video/menubug.web…

That's strange. I don't have this problem. This normally happens when there's a wrong image url in the theme or the image is missing. I just checked the download and it seems to be okay.

Could you try "tree /path/to/Vertex-Light/gtk-3.0/assets" and send me the output? Also maybe launch gedit with the terminal and watch for error messages when you hover over the affected menuitems and post that here, too.

Edit: Best way to get the error messages would be executing "gedit >> log.txt 2>&1", provoke the bug and upload the log.txt on pastebin or something.

It is a missing asset apparently on my end. However, I just reloaded the theme fresh and I still get that error though.

Hey I saw that now that gnome has dropped metacity in 3.16 it is impossible to draw custom window min/max/close buttons now? There any workaround for this yet? It would be a shame if you had to change your theme, it looks great as is.
Reply
:iconhorst3180:
horst3180 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2015
Yes, that's true to some extent. I discussed that issue here a bit. As you see, there is a workaround which requires the user to install custom icons. A real solution would require custom css classes for the titlebuttons. I found out that it's very simple to add this to gtk itself and it's also possible with mutter (although a bit harder). Maybe if we propose this to the devs they would implement this, but I'm not sure.

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

Thanks for the report, I will look into all of those :) (Smile) 

Edit: It looks like the first issue with the large font is intentional, because the elementary theme does this too. I copied some elementary specific code from it, so my theme "inherited" that feature.

Edit2: About the issue with Maya.. They hardcoded the colors into the application from what I've seen. It looks the same with elementary and I can't do anything about it, because it overrides my css.

The terminal issue should be fixed now.

Thank you for the quick fixed...really appreciates your hard works ;)

edit 1 & 2: will ask on eOS G+ if other user having the similar issue, else will filing a bug against this issues on launchpad (not a top priority tho),
edit 2: any chances to override the letters colour (currently white) for unselected to darker colour...?
edit 3: confirmed terminal issue "fixed"...thank you :)

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.... ;)
