Oxygen Gtk
QtCurve
Score 78%
Description:

Oxygen-Gtk is a port of the default KDE widget theme (Oxygen), to gtk.

Its primary goal is to ensure visual consistency between gtk and qt-based applications running under kde. A secondary objective is to also have a stand-alone nice looking gtk theme that would behave well on other Desktop Environments.

Unlike other attempts made to port the kde oxygen theme to gtk, this attempt does not depend on Qt (via some Qt to Gtk conversion engine), nor does render the widget appearance via hard coded pixmaps, which otherwise breaks everytime some setting is changed in kde.

Somehow there are some problems displaying popup menus. I dont know if its a problem with cairo-compmgr or oxygen gtk. So I have to start with one ;)

Look at http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/213/cairocompmgroxygengtk2.png/ and/or http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/594/cairocompmgroxygengtk1.png/

You'll see that every time there is light background below the menu it displays wrong in that particular region: no rounded corners and the edge looks different now.

For some reason the first popup menu displayed will show up properly and will continue to do so even if you hover the mouse over other menus.

I use x64 ArchLinux with current cairo-compmgr (0.3.3) and current oxygen-gtk 1.3.1. Video card is a Radeon 4600 using the open source driver. Openbox does its job as window manager.

This is a known limitation of some compositors such as compiz and, as I now see, openbox. They don't render shadows behind translucent parts of windows, so you see this as light borders when background is light and almost correct rounding when shadow appears invisible because of dark background. Try kwin, and you'll not have this problem :) Or just disable shadows for popup windows.

Great job! While installing it I came across some common problems more people will probably run into. It may be worth including these in INSTALL file

oxygen-gtk Could not find X11

sudo apt-get install kdelibs5-dev

-- checking for module 'cairo'
-- package 'cairo' not found

sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev

-- checking for module 'gtk+-3.0'
-- package 'gtk+-3.0' not found

sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev

You don't need kdelibs5-dev to build oxygen-gtk.
Also, you could just install libgtk-3-dev - it has all the dependencies which cmake checks for, including libcairo2-dev and libx11-dev.

This might be not a good idea to put into INSTALL file, because the instructions generally depend on the distro.

Hi,

I really like what you have done with oxygen-gtk. Two Thumbs up!

I have however a weird issue. Due to my default color settings for my desktop (Obsidian Coast), I have to run Eclipse in a different theme (otherwise it is difficult to see some text). Additionally I prefer my eclipse to use a different gtk theme.

So I run my eclipse with GTK2_RC_FILES=... prefixed. If I do that (and have oxygen-gtk as my default gtk2 theme) I get strange comboboxes. It has been really driving me crazy.

It can be reproduced with The widget factory as well. You can launch it with

GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/AdwaitaCupertinoL/gtk-2.0/gtkrc twf

If I change my gtk theme to that theme in the GTK settings, then the comboboxes look correct.

Is there something I am missing? Is there any other way I can start eclipse with a different theme?

Most likely settings daemon interferes with your choice. I have no such problem, i.e. twf looks OK with themes like Simple and Glossy while other desktop is using oxygen-gtk.

Hey, thanks for the reply!

You were correct. After I killed "xsettings-kde" it worked fine. Is there any way I can set it up to ignore my eclipse instance?

Mandriva 2010 is quite an old distribution. Most likely your version of Gtk is too old. You'd need to upgrade. There is no way we can support all versions of Gtk since it keeps adding new features (some of which we need badly) every new release.

Can you post the version of Gtk that you are using ?

Cheers,

Hugo

We do support this version, it's 2.24.0 as said in original post. Just need some fixes to disable building inner shadows code at all (it requires 2.24.2).
Though it's strange that build failed, since the function is available since 2.22.

I installed both gtk2 and gtk3 on Ubutnu 12.04.
This is first time I needed gtk3 version, but seems like gtk3 version should ship with gtk2 also, as I don't think anyone can use just gtk3, but nevermind...

I had expected problem with Unity panel, then with white font color on all widgets. For that reason I included default theme (Amdiance) gtk.css in oxygen gtk.css and additionally changed fg color in kdeglobals file. It looks nice, but I think I'll need to tweak more Ambiance included settings to get it perfect, and I hate it because I don't want to understand those 10000 lines css settings.

Now I thought to ask why are tabs so small. In gtk2 version they were IMHO great, but now they are condensed. Is there any setting I can change tabs height?

Report

HugoPereira

First a screenshot:
http://wstaw.org/m/2012/04/27/plasma-desktopRV2339.png

So "inactive tabs" are as high in gtk2 and gtk3 here.
Why the active tab is smaller is a gtk3 bug: the same css property is used for the spacing around the tab, and the spacing around the whole tabwidget frame.
So if you want to give more space around the tabs, you end up with a lot of wasted space around the full frame.
See on the screenshot already how the spacing around the text entry is larger for gtk3 than for gtk2. That's exactly the issue.
So ... upstream bug.

As for the other issues you report, I'd rather have them fix in oxygen-gtk (rather than merging css styles, like you did). Could report dedicated (and separated) bugs on https://bugs.kde.org ? Providing screenshots of the issues ?

Cheers and thanks,

Hugo

Sorry for late reply...

You are right about gtk3 tab height. It's "condensed" on any theme. I'll report my issues asap

Hm, no issues for reporting...

Prior to planned report, I removed oxygen-gtk related files and using git downloaded and build fresh packages, afterwhich changing theme to oxygen-gtk shows it in all glory - looks great! (except Unity panel, which has gtk widget color for background, but that's no so important)

I must suspect that issue is with launchpad 1.0.2 packages, as that's waht I used previously. I tried to build latest version just after installing 12.04, but lot of dependencies were needed so I used ready package from Ubuntu repository. Also to back that this is not accident, I asked on askubuntu.com about font issue and one user reported same experiance - white font on light background. That should be reported on Launchpad I guess
