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.


Hosting:
- tarballs are hosted on kde ftp servers

Hmm, I'd really like to know what the reason is, because it might help condense combobox popup entries to match oxygen-qt :)

OK, you might want to try this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6303846/how-do-i-change-the-line-height-of-a-gtktreeview-using-gtkrc
Though it doesn't help in reducing separator, but does for extending.

It was recent installed font issue, which messed things up on multiple places as reported

You don't wanna know where all I've been until I figured that out

hi,

this is second time I install this theme, but now have slight problem (IIRC it wasn't present in some of previous version)

Luckily I can explain with image comparison, as I recently uploaded screenshot elsewhere (screenshot on left) and provide new screenshot from same editor with oxygen theme (right screenshot), on this image:

http://i.imgur.com/kKjCs.png

As can be seen vertical spacing (rows) are too condensed, and I would like previous state. I imagine some gtkrc setting needs to be changed, but don't know which

Thanks

In principle the style has no impact on text editors. Now, this might be some kind of custom layout that would use different widgets for each line.

Could you double check how it looks with other widget themes ?

In any case, in order to debug I'd need to know:
what application it is;
what gtk version it is (and notably, gtk2 and gtk3)
which versions of oxygen-gtk you compared.

Also, bugs/issues are best reported on https://bugs.kde.org rather than here.

Cheers,

Hugo

Thanks for your fast reply and consideration.

It's latest SciTE text editor which I build from source, but it's same with any Scintilla editor like Geany i.e.

I'm on Ubuntu 11.04 with gtk 2 using latest to date oxygen-gtk

I have selected default Ubuntu Ambience theme, then changed controls to oxygen-gtk
Everything looks great except this issue

I think that also Nautilus side panel (places pane) is condensed: http://i.imgur.com/VOvMh.png

It might be placebo, but I don't remember it was condensed like this

I also think Eclipse is condensed :) and don't have other GUI editors to check

I'm sure that I'm going to sound ignorant, but what exactly are the dependencies and how do I compile/install it? I have tried multiple times, and I only get as far as the "cmake ../" step.

CMake should tell you what you need if there are any errors.

It says that I need to install cairo and some dbus module, but I cannot find the dbus module in my repositories and there isn't one cairo package there, but many interlocking packages. I have tried compiling cairo from source, but then I run into even more problems with dependencies.

Here's what I had to install to compile oxygen-gtk on newly installed Kubuntu 11.10:
libgtk2.0-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev
Other build dependencies will be automatically installed to satisfy dependencies of these packages.
Be sure to remove everything from your build directory before trying to re-cmake after you install these.

Why oxygen-gtk installs to /share/themes/ instead of /usr/share/themes?

Report

HugoPereira

Must have to do with your gtk install. The CMakeLists uses PkgConfig to determine the path.
Best is to fill a bug report on https:bugs.kde.org and provide there the output of your "cmake" command.
Also, you can set the install path manually using cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr (but this should not be necessary).

GTK 2 apps are okay but GTK3 are still ugly, I moved theme manually to /usr/share/themes and problem still exists. How do I set GTK3 theme on KDE?

well, then, no clue. Maybe its related with the wrong install path issue mentionned above.
Works here (and at least for two other people that I know of), with $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini containing

[Settings]
gtk-theme-name = oxygen-gtk

hey hugo.... what the "icons4" file does ? i just rename it and now my kfanza icons works with gtk apps :P now the only thing that doesn use my icons is the download bar in google chrome and chromium browsers :( but i guess this is problem from the browser :D

Hi,

Sorry for late answer.

This is the guy responsible for setting up icon names "translations" so that non standard gtk named icons are magically replaced by their standard equivalent (notably with oxygen style).

To be honest, why the whole procedure sometimes works and sometimes does not, is a mystery to me.

Hi, I was having the same error of apileocole and so I get the sources from git.
The above error does not appear, but now compiling fails with this error:

[ 87%] Building CXX object src/CMakeFiles/oxygen-gtk.dir/oxygenwindowshadow.o
Linking CXX shared library liboxygen-gtk.so
