Debian Multimedia :: Dark Theme Vs Light Theme

Aug 4, 2011

I enjoy using vim from lxterminal with the black background, as well as awesome with its dark theme. I configured xfe manually to be darkish, and i use darklooks as a GTK theme to suit it as well. I could say all my desktop looks pretty dark, which my eyes thank me for. I also use redshift.But problems come along when surfing the web. Most web pages (including this one) have very bright styles. They are not the problem themselves, but switching from my windows hurts my eyes since it's a quick change to a much brighter screen.What would you do, either:

1. Use everything with a brighter background and putting the screen brightness a bit lower. (changing the GTK theme to clearlooks, using lxterminal with a white background, etc.)

2. Use some color theme with uzbl so that pages would look much darker. (like when you set manually the text and background colors in Firefox/Iceweasel)

I would myself go with the second one if most pages wouldn't look that bad when modified that way. For example, many pages use non-transparent images with white backgrounds on white pages, so if you change the background to black not only it looks horrible but it too is a mess.

Debian Multimedia :: Qpdfview Appears With Generic Theme Instead Of Gtk Theme

Jul 5, 2015

Since I updated my system a couple of days ago, qpdfview uses a generic theme instead of the Gtk theme. Apparently by adding

Code: Select allexport QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=gtk.

to /etc/profile all QT5 apps should use the gtk theme but for some reason this doesn't seem to work.

Adding -style=gtk to the launcher options works but I want to change the theme setting for all QT5 apps.

Ubuntu :: Using Dust Dark Theme, Can't See The Menus?

Jul 18, 2011

I've selected the Dusk Dark theme, but the menu names are of the same color (I have to look extremely closely at the monitor to see the names of the menus. I assumed the font color of the menu names would change to a color (such as white) that would contrast the near black color of the Dust Dark theme. How can I change thisBy the way, I'm really uncomfortable with the Ubuntu layout. How can I switch to multiple windows without using Alt-Tab? Like access the Windows taskbar?

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 And KDE 4.4.4 - Additional Dark Color Theme Does Not Work Properly

Jul 20, 2010

After an upgrade to OpenSuse 11.3 KDE has gone to worse. I am beginning to believe that dark themes are impossible to use on the new KDE 4.4.4. The only theme that works properly is Air, but I find it to much white. Aya or Elegance theme have problems showing the buttons on plasma elements, so has any other theme but Air. Trying to switch to an additional dark color theme (Obsidian Coast) does not work properly either.

The buttons on plasma elements are invisible (the button panel that appears when the mouse is over an plasma element). Sometimes different elements are distorted, i.e. icons, text input boxes etc. I wonder how it is possible that the developers at KDE can make it worse. This worked perfectly on OpenSuse 11.2 and its KDE version.

Ubuntu :: Current Theme Defaults To Silver Theme For No Reason Randomly On Login

May 4, 2011

For some reason, from time to time on login, as my normal theme starts to load, it changes to some sort of silver theme (a very basic one), and I am unable to change it over to any other theme. Checking the theme being used, it still says my desired one is set, but it is not. Also, no matter what theme I change it to, that basic silver theme is the one being used. This includes a default icon theme, not the one I prefer.

The only option that seems to fix things is a restart, and the hope that on this login it won't mess up like before.I am using Natty, from a fresh install, with Ubuntu Classic as my desktop, and have reinstalled things more than once to try and fix a few of the Natty-related issues, but this one keeps coming back.

Fedora :: Mouse Theme / Only Some Symbols Change / Other Stay Standard Theme

Feb 21, 2011

I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Install Elementary Theme

Jul 30, 2011

I was looking for some cool theme and I decided to try out Elementary. I downloaded archive, extracted it... but after that?

This is directory tree:

total 52
-rw-r--r--  1 dagrevis dagrevis   212 Jan 19  2011 AUTHORS
-rw-r--r--  1 dagrevis dagrevis   191 Feb  2 01:10 CONTRIBUTORS
-rw-r--r--  1 dagrevis dagrevis 17992 Jan 19  2011 COPYING

[code].....

I tried to drag archive to 'Appearance Preferences', but it "...does not appear to be a valid theme.". I tried to drag extracted archive - "...can't move directory over directory.". Once I somehow get it to count as installed, but when I clicked on it - it was missing 'Elementary GTK+' or something like that... Ohh, I tried to run file 'elementary', but after 'Run' button is pressed - it does ignore it. No further action or whatever. How to install this and, maybe, other themes for Debian 6.0.2?

P.S. Before that all I installed 'gtk2-engines-murrine' as well as said in 'guide' in DeviantART.

Fedora :: Index.theme Does Not Appear To Be Valid Theme

I'm running Fedora 11 x86_64 (GNOME) and I'm having a problem installing ANY themes from http://art.gnome.org. Any time I try to install a theme I get an error that it's "appears to not be a valid theme" When I first click the install button and navigate to my theme packages, I don't see the [dot] theme file, which is a red-flag. I change to "All files" and I tend to see an "index.theme". Is this the correct file?

Debian Multimedia :: I3 - Iceweasel Does Not Apply Gtk-theme On Login

May 1, 2015

After logging in to i3 i launch an instance of iceweasel via

Code: Select allexec --no-startup-id i3-msg 'workspace 2; exec /usr/bin/iceweasel

This instance of iceweasel only applies half of the gtk-theme, which i set via the mate-control-center.

The main problem is that the text in the right-click menu and on inactive tabs has the wrong colour (dark text on dark background)

When closing this instance of iceweasel and opening another one, the gtk-theme is correctly applied.

Installed gtk-theme-switch and set the theme there, now it works as expected

Debian Multimedia :: Libcairo2 1.10.2-6 Slows Down Clearlooks Theme By 4x?

Apr 8, 2011

I use Debian Testing with the default Clearlooks theme - (nvidia graphics, 32-bit kernel 2.6.38-2-bigmem) For some time i noticed Nautilus opening folders slowly. I did a gtkperf test and i was surprised that i got 12 or so seconds. Before i had ~3 seconds. Gtkperf test output with the libcairo2 version 1.10.2-6 (notice the high GtkComboBox and GtkToggleButton values):

GtkEntry - time:  0.05
GtkComboBox - time:  3.96
GtkComboBoxEntry - time:  0.82
GtkSpinButton - time:  0.21
GtkProgressBar - time:  0.11

[Code]...

This happens 100% of the time, it is not a one-time gtkperf quirk. Now, what is wrong with the vanilla libcairo2? And why hadrets version works well?

Debian Multimedia :: Use Ubuntu's Brown Theme In Squeeze?

Aug 16, 2011

I'm a recent convert from Ubuntu but of all the things I thought I could get used to, a different colour scheme is not one of them. Does anybody know of a way to import the brown colour scheme from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS into Debian Squeeze? I've tried configuring it as best I can by configuring the Clearlooks theme, but to get the brown panels/menus/titlebars with white writing that doesn't make all other writing white also must mean editing some config file(s).

Can I just copy whatever these files are from Ubuntu to Debian? I don't need the whole "titlebar buttons the left" caper, but the colours... I find easier on my eyes, particularly the dark brown panels, etc, since they're always staring at me and it's less of an eye strain to have a light colour "in my face" most of the time. Changing to a dark colour scheme everywhere is more trouble than it's worth, which is why I liked this theme in Ubuntu. It was dark where it needed to be but light where most apps/etc assume black fonts, dark blue hyperlinks, etc.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Theme Menu Arrows Have Randomly Disappeared

Jun 25, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze, and I have a gnome theme called "Moomex" installed. I have had it for a while and it has worked fine, until it suddenly stopped displaying menu scroll arrows (like for long bookmark menus in web browsers). I can still scroll, but in place of the arrows is a solid colored rectangle that clashes with my theme. I went searching and found my theme's arrow image files (see code below). I have no idea how these files are implemented into the theme display, so I don't know how to re-enable them. I tried reinstalling the theme, but it changed nothing. These arrows show up just fine in any other stock theme, and they were fine in this one too until they randomly disappeared.
