Oxygen Gtk

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:

This screenshot is from unity. Right ?
If yes, I don't think we (as a gtk style) can change the top panel background color. I think the later is painted with its own methods, with no call to the gtk theme primitives. (although I could be proven wrong). Maybe Ruslan can comment.

Cheers,

Hugo

Thanks for your quick reply :)
Yes, it's Unity panel on Ubuntu 11.04

I found workaround, and here it is if anyone else has this problem:

1. edit "/usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" and as last line add:

include "../../Ambiance/gtk-2.0/apps/gnome-panel.rc"

2. open "/usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0/apps/gnome-panel.rc" and add this line as line 12:

text[NORMAL] = "#dfdfdf"

Log out/in and enjoy this nice work without issues :)

Hi,
Theme seems not to work so good after the upgrade to xorg-server-1.11.0 (even the git version of theme):

I'd rather say it's cairo which got broken by update. The bug is likely located in the video driver. What if you try with "vesa" Xorg driver?
Anyway, if you only updated xorg and nothing more, it's most likely not our fault. Report this problem to your distribution.

Hehe... recall what was until 1.0.2 with argb colormaps. This problem will reappear if we make oxygen-gtk transparent. There has to be another way for this...

QtCurve manages transparency, how do they do it??
having transparent oxygen would be nice.

QtCurve likely uses a blacklist of applications so that blacklisted apps wouldn't become transparent. Otherwise it'll crash, as was the case with oxygen-gtk before 1.0.2.

Well Im using this with awesomewm. It would be nice if this theme could be more DE/WM agnostic.

Report

Problèmes is that various DEs dont have a uniform system settings, which makes what you suggest quite complicated (would require to read multiple files, in multiple format, with no idea about which one should have precedence over the other)

Oxygen gtk is designed do support KDE settings.

Now, You can change the icon style it picks by manually editing the kdeglobals file installed in its default config directory. (look for icon theme or something similar)

I looked in kdeglobals but the only lines with icon in them are:

ToolButtonStyle=TextBesideIcon
ToolButtonStyleOtherToolbars=TextBesideIcon

Anyways I think I'll just look for a different Oxygen theme. Thanks anyways.

Report

hpereira

You're correct. My mistake.
To configure the icon theme you'd need to add:

[Icons]
Theme=your theme

To the file.
I'll add it ASAP, and will document.

When using oxygen-gtk, my icons are changed to Gnome. Why can't I keep my usual icons (Elementary)?

Im using v1.1.2 on Arch Linux btw.

What's your desktop environment ?
Oxygen-gtk tries to follow your KDE settings and fallback to oxygen, then gnome, if none of the two above is found.

Hi!

Something goes wrong with firefox/thunderbird and oxygen-gtk (And KDE 4.7.0). The shadows from the menues and so on are a little bit shredded:

Same problem here.

OpenSuse 11.4
nVidia GeForce GT 320M (nVidia driver 275.21)
KDE 4.7 final
Firefox 5.x
Thunderbird 3.1.x
oxygen-gtk 1.1.1

Problem occurs only with Firefox and Thunderbird; all other GTK2 applications work perfectly.

Corruption around firefox menus:

Corruption around firefox tooltips:

http://img847.imageshack.us/img847/5536/oxygengtk2.jpg

Downgrade to oxygen-gtk 1.0.x fixes the problem, but the menu shadows are not drawn.
Problem does not occur with other GTK2 themes.

This bug has already been reported:

Ralph's perfectly correct.
Problem is already reported in kde bugs. Its likely a combination of some Graphics driver + Firefox that causes the issues. It arrises only with new KWin's shadow system in combination with recent oxygen-gtk, that is the only Gtk style to support this new shadow system.

(which is why older gtk style, or other styles don't show shadows for any gtk apps).

Code is correct, as far as I know (notably since it is working just fine with other gtk apps, and also working fine with firefox on some systemes - notably: mine ).

I have no real clue how to fix, and would suggest people to report it upstream to graphics drivers/X

Using Oxygen-GTK 1.1.1, detaching toolbars in Audacity causes mouse input (click and hover) to break. This doesn't happen with other themes (QtCurve and Raleigh tested). I have filed a bug report here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=279406

hello, hey when I upgraded to kde 4.7 The gtk menus appear without shadows, qt works fine, the problem is gtk (even LibreOffice).
Is there any solution for this?
thanks

Report

This is due to a change with Leon shadow system.
In fact you should not get shadows with any gtk theme.
Now if you upgrade to oxygen-gtk 1.1, shadows should back.
