Description:

This is a GTK2/GTK3/Openbox remake of my all-time favorite theme series, Shiki-Colors. These themes are all based on CobiBird, which is the default theme for LXLE. But thats not all -- not only is this a remake of Shiki-Colors, but there are also several other styles, too!

Each color variation comes in five different styles, as shown in the first screenshot. The leftmost column displays the Light style. The Mixed style is very similar to the Light style, except it has dark menus. In the second column is the Shiki-Colors remake, known here as NeoShiki. The third column is a mixed dark variant known as Obsidian, and the rightmost column is the true dark version, known as PitchDark.

The second screenshot shows off some tricks I discovered the other day that can be done with Openbox. In fact, I gotta ask -- how many of yall knew that things like that could be done with Openbox? :-) In the screenshot, Im using the LX-Brave-Light theme to demonstrate what all it does when the mouse hovers over and presses on those buttons, with the blue ones being whatever the highlight colors are of the theme (blue, brown, orange, etc.)

The last screenshot simply shows that this can most definitely be considered an official return of Shiki-Colors, available in all 7 colors, as follows: Brave (blue), Dust (brown), Human (orange), Illustrious (pink), Noble (purple), Wine (red), and Wise (green). I also, of course, recommend downloading the GNOME-Colors icon series, which should be available in your package manager, or on GNOME-Look, in case you are unable to do this, for a matching icon set.

The themes are available either listed by color (such as, LX-Brave-Light), or by style (such as, LX-Light-Brave), and as such, Ive arranged them either way for whichever way you prefer to have them listed in your theme list.

Finally, there will be other color variants of these themes introduced periodically, along with matching GNOME-Colors-like icon sets too, so stay tuned for more! :-)




Changelog:

Updated to new download URL, since Copy.com (my previous cloud hosting service) announced that they would be discontinuing the service on May 1, so I moved these themes to my Google Drive.

Corrected some slight color inconsistencies between the darker GTK and Openbox themes for a smoother look. Also, changed the selected_fg_color of the Wise (green) themes from white to black for better readability.

menu.items.active.text.color in the Wise Pitch-Dark Openbox theme changed from white to black to match with the corresponding GTK themes.

Slightly dimmed the text color in all of the PitchDark themes due to apps that, in spite of using a dark theme, still insist on white text backgrounds (I noticed this problem on the Spotify Linux client).

 To ease packaging

Hi!

I don't know how to thank you. Maybe I should build a statue of you.

More seriously, I've published an archlinux user package here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gtk-theme-lx-colors/ to ease the installation of your theme on this distribution.

Do not hesitate to ping me when you update your themes.

Cool! I've been thinking about doing likewise for Debian/Ubuntu, and in fact, discovered a package here while back that makes such creations dead simple called Debreate. In fact, since I have today off from work (fall break), I think I'll do it sometime this weekend...heck, how about now? :-)

Hi!

Could you please use a real hosting platform, which use predictive URL to serve its contents? Your move to google cloud hell breaks packaging as it is impossible to determine where precisely is your archive. Thus wget, curl or other things do not work.

As a workaround I could host it myself, but I do not feel comfortable with this as it forces third person to trust me instead of you (real author) as upstream publisher. Thus, could you please consider to push it to github, or any other directly accessible place ?

Thank you very much.

 GTK+ 3.18 NeoShiki

Hello, thanks for the great themes. Will it be possible to match the color of the GTK3 CSD (title bar) to the color of the menu bar in NeoShiki themes? Thanks.

If you're looking for the titlebars for the NeoShiki variants, they use the same titlebars as the PitchDark variants. Is that what you're looking for? If so, use the PitchDark one for whatever color it is you want.

I might be doing something wrongly, but from what I see:

Obsidian and PitchDark have a dark title bar as expected, but the NeoShiki has a light one:

Try using the PitchDark Openbox theme with the corresponding NeoShiki GTK theme. The PitchDark Openbox themes are meant to be used with the NeoShiki, Obsidian, and PitchDark GTK themes. In fact, lemme test it out myself just to be sure...yup, it matches perfectly.

I just didn't explain it well enough, sorry. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with openbox, the Gnome 3.18 apps have their own title bar, which is presumably themed as part of the GTK3 theme. I hope you can open the link in my previous comment, where I put a screenshot.

Bummer...sorry, I thought you were confused about which Openbox theme to use with the NeoShiki variants -- my bad!

Looks like I'm gonna have to see if CobiBird is updated for GTK 3.18 and if so...well, back to the ol' drawing board...I thought GTK 3.x had finally quit breaking APIs with each new release -- turns out I was wrong. :-(

In the meantime, I would try using the mixed themes, which will have the light menubar but still have the dark menus.

Yeah, I saw the screenshot. It sucks that such a great idea for a theme that Vic gave us all in 2008 is now essentially useless, since the GTK3 devs don't give a rat's rear end about theming compatibility. :-( Thankfully, I don't use such programs all that often.

I have just corrected that. What happened was, back in February, my cloud hosting provider, Copy.com, announced that they would be discontinuing the service on May 1, so I moved everything I had there over to Google Drive, and I forgot to update that here -- until now. I haven't made any changes to these themes, since this semester has been an extremely busy one for me, with this being my wife's last semester of graduate school, so I've had to step it up a bit on household chores over the last several months. Thus, all this is is just a download URL update.

Great job! Looks nice and clean. I knew about the ability to color individual buttons after messing around with my themerc. Took me by surprise because it isn't even documented!

I know, right? :-) I discovered this on the Openbox themes for Shiki-Colors, which have a gray background on the active close buttons. Being curious, I downloaded it to take a look at what that theme creator had done. I then dug around on the web to find any clue I could get my hands on to how to do that with the other buttons as well, just to see if I could, piecing together the information in a little bit of trial and error until I had achieved the effect I wanted.

And yes, I agree with you, this most definitely needs to be documented (hey, I wonder if they would accept that piece of documentation from me), because the way the buttons all looked the same on every Openbox theme I'd seen made me think that most Openbox themes were dull and boring. But once I saw what user JohnIsEvil had done with it, that piqued my curiosity, and as they say, the rest is history.

 check and radio borders not visible in mint 17

using mint 17 borders of checkbox and radio buttons are visibile only using the light theme.
I substituded the gtk-widgets-assets.css file in neoshiki theme with that provided in the light theme and this fix the problem for me.
I tested this workaround only with neoshiki wise theme

Hi, Purpleleaf. Whenever I can find the time to do so, I've been working on updating this, so hopefully I should have it rolled out sometime next week (I'm fairly busy and don't get to work on this as often as I'd like), so that should fix it. Please let me know if it doesn't. This theme series, BTW, is based on Greybird, which, IMHO, is one of the best themes out there as well as one of the easiest to work with for creating a derivative theme, so I don't see why it wouldn't fix it.
