A GTK3 theme compatible with Shiki-Colors






Shiki-Nouveau is a GTK3 theme based on Shiki-Colors, for the GNOME desktop environment.

Developer comments

Some people from the Linux Mint forums may recall I once tried to make a GTK3-compatible version of Shiki-Colors (which ultimately turned into Zukitwo-Colors due to a lack of knowledge or experience of theme styling). After working on the Zukitwo-Colors themes (as well as Zukitwo-Primary-Colors and Mint-Z Improved) for some time I decided to try my hand at it again using the knowledge I've gained since I started.

These themes are a preliminary attempt to make Shiki-Colors compatible with GNOME and GTK 3, borrowing the Zukitwo-Colors themes and altering them slightly to better match the look of Shiki-Colors, and altering the GTK 2 themes slightly to better match what I could achieve with the GTK 3 themes. I've also made GNOME Shell and Cinnamon themes (borrowed from Zukitwo-Colors and altered as I felt necessary) that I feel fit the overall look and feel of the Shiki-Colors themes.

Unfortunately I have a very limited understanding of how the Mutter XML code works and how different it is from the older Metacity XML code, so I haven't yet made an updated window manager theme, nor have I made a Unity theme since I have absolutely no knowledge of how that works.

I hope people take interest in these themes and I also hope that my attempt to revive the old Shiki-Colors themes sparks interest from people with more knowledge and understanding of theme styling than I possess. I would very much like to bring the old themes up-to-date with a minimum of changes and any necessary updates and fixes to the GTK2 themes, while making the GTK3 themes match the appearance of those themes as closely as possible. I believe this project will not succeed without help from others with more understanding of the GTK3 and Mutter styling, and possibly with better ideas how to style the GNOME Shell and Cinnamon themes to best fit the overall feel of the Shiki-Colors themes.

How to install?

About GNOME:

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.

GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.

The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
