Whit-e an elementary OS theme by kxmylo Whit-e an elementary OS theme by kxmylo
a light GTK3 theme for elementary os Luna.

the icon theme: [link]
Instructions:

To change gala window buttons you have to open dconf-tools from slingshot and navigate trough org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance and inside the appearance box type: whit-e

If you instead want to use the Leon (Mac lion copy) buttons you have to change the folder name "metacity-1 Lion" to "metacity-1" and backup or change the name of the previous one. Then you set the Button.Layout option as: close,minimize,menu:maximize or close,minimize,maximize:

as you prefer ordering the icons.

Changes:
Fully white
bigger window controls
Sidebar clear color
Selected items color more soft than the original elementary theme
transparent panel, so it will look messed up with white wallpapers
Gala workspaces background (you can use the image you like, just replace the image file "ToolbarDark.jpg" on whit-e/gtk-3.0/assets/
Rounded entry and checkboxes
rounded maximized window

the icon theme is a mix of elementary-faenza-hycon, i uploaded a zip here: [link] this version is lacking some fixes and adds i've made recently, i'll update it later, i don't know when.

Updates:
5-12-2012
Full support for dark theme
rounded dark bottom toolbar buttons
other small fixes like border colors

3-12-2012
statusbar borders clearer
bottomtoolbar button with more padding and wiht no borders
some fixes

This theme is great!
But the transparent panel is too much for Me... where can I edit to set custom transparency level?
Maybe in panel.css ?

Thanks and great job!

create a folder with the links of the apps (.desktop) and then drag and drop that folder to the dock.

No, it is not Photoshop, is is a group of apps in the dock. I advise you to take a look at this blog: www.elementaryupdate.com/ there are some posts that will explain you how to use install themes and a bunch of other tweaks. Good luck! :)

Really, really good work.

I use it daily on my Zenbook, it fits perfectly well on this 13,3" FullHD screen.

how can i install foto and drop in my daily build over ubuntu ?
Reply

kxmylo Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
to install foto you need to add it's ppa, but remember it is in development so there are a lot of bugs. to add it and install it run this in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:erasmo-marin/foto-daily-builds && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install foto

How do I enable said "dark theme"?
Reply
:iconkxmylo:
kxmylo Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
some apps ask for dark theme such as eog pantheon-terminal and audience... if the application doesn't ask for dark theme it will use the regular one.

you would have to modify the files names and still it'd need some fixes. instead you could use this dark theme if you like it [link]

I've seen that theme, but it's a bit too gaudy for me. I guess I'll keep using Zukitwo Dark.

Looks really good, although I can't figure out how to configure GTK themes in Luna. I installed lxappearence but nothing changes: icons, colours, GTK theme, etc, remains the same.

you better try ubuntu tweak [link] and to change the window border decoration and buttons follow the instructions. I'm assuming you know where to unzip the files...

Oh ok, thank you. And yes, I know where everything should be, although I'm getting sick of the lack of configuration in elementary. At least they should provide a way to configure our desktop via native software. I came to Linux because of its potential of configuration and sometimes it seems elementary is adopting the same chains and restrains that Apple.
I think I'll have to go back to Arch...
