AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

I have released the theme I've been working on for a while. It's a nice simple flat theme for openbox/gtk.

Shows how out of touch with non-linux tech stuff I am that I had to look up who that is. Actually it's funny because when I posted it on /r/crunchbang one of the folks there send me this:

That screenshot is bringing me out in a rash -- I remember having to use those horrid Mickey Mouse devices in the late '80s...
They were sat next to gleaming Sun SPARCstations and seemed like children's toys in comparison.

@OP: Lovely theme, far nicer than Apple's pathetic efforts smile

@Head_on_a_Stick I used to have to use those machines in primary school, but I have to admit a fondness for The Oregon Trail and Sim City which I was initially exposed to on old Apple hardware smile

Anyway, trying my best not to derail the thread...oops....

Re: AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

For healthy eyes that strong contrast is not good. It makes you tired quicker. For people with bad eyesight it is not good either; menubars are barely readable and the sliders barely visible.
The overall impression is good. I like simple, flat themes. But one can use it only for a short time and will be tired with it quickly.
I know the goal was to make a high contrast theme, but it is not suitable for most people in the long run.

Re: AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

Zoidberg, menubar, sliders, scrollbars are the task of gtk theme.
If we've issue with our eyes there are plenty gtk theme dark, black, gray. I have tried different themes a year ago Deb8 with ACYL icons is the best minimal combination imo.

Re: AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

Ok, apparently it's not fixed.

I will need to go through and find the missing icon- I replaced gtk-remove (and thus all the ones that were symlinked to it) so it must be a different icon that is missing. This will take some time.

Re: AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

Great less-is-more effort!

The only complaint I have right now has to do with the low-contrast of the text in the window head (the correct english terminology eludes me for the moment). It can be a little hard to read under some ambient light conditions. At least for this 55-year old.

Those icons ar just great.

I have conteplated the value of an almost all-grey version where important information is highlighted using color bit all the rest is kept as is.

Re: AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

Yeah, I see what you're saying. I have young eyes and sometimes I forget not everyone else does too!

I am busy right now but I will probably change that and see how I like it, when I get a chance. Stay tuned.

Awesome. I may try to use it a minimal openbox-build that I'm working on.

Re: AllGray: a light monochromatic theme

Hi everyone.

I have updated the theme with two main changes: support for gtk3 is now built in, and the theme is now patched so that chrome uses the correct color for the tab bar. It was pulling a darker color before and it didn't look good.

Here's a screenshot showing how the chrome theme now renders. Yeah, I introduced some color back.
