Minimum. Suite v 0.3 by thibaut28 Minimum. Suite v 0.3 by thibaut28
I was wondering if I could design some really minimalist interface, without lots of effects, shiny stuff, etc... Here it is ;) I present you "Minimum", made using only contrast, and a few gradients :D It comes in Black and Black value reversed => White.

The archive contains :

- Minimum Black GTK Theme
- Minimum White GTK Theme
- Minimum Black Contrasted GTK Theme
- Minimum White Contrasted GTK Theme

- XFCE Black Windeco
- XFCE White Windeco
- XFCE Black Contrasted Windeco
- XFCE White Contrasted Windeco

- Metacity Black Windeco
- Metacity White Windeco
- Metacity Black Contrasted Windeco
- Metacity White Contrasted Windeco

- Gradient wallpapers


Have fun with it, download, try, fav, comment, etc...

================================================
Changelog :

01/06/09 :
Version 0.1b

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

01/06/09 : Added Metacity theme -> Version 0.2

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

01/15/09 : 2 contrasted version in Black and White are now available. The panel has been slightly reworked, so have the progressbars been. Added a small collection of Gradient wallpapers. The toolbars as also been reduced from 24x24 to 16x16 ;)

Hello Paul,

I just tried installing it. You have to extract the theme version folder you want into the .themes directory. To be able to select it from gnome-tweak-tool you need to create a gtk-3.0 directory in the theme folder along the gtk-2.0 directory. This should make it appears into the combo menu in gnome-tweak-tool. You should also be able to select the window decoration. However, note that gtk3 apps won't be styled...

best regards,

Thibaut

I realize it's in French, but one of the first things I noticed was the variable named "Tampon".

Anyway, really nice theme!

:D For my defense, that's some old code.
"Buffer" shouldn't be translated, especially to store some int value, in a var name starting by an uppercase :D

I <3 this. And have been using it, however 2 things stuck out to me. In some apps, progress bars do not show. Also, some items, specifically links, are colored too darkly.

I use clearlooks zenburn most of the time, you might want to check out the colors used there as I see you're using a similar soft dark base (#f3f3f3?).

I have a huge softspot for the zenburn color scheme, but I :love:LOVE how you've done the widgets here. An amalgamation of these two things would be my gtk forever :P

Thanks for your feedback ! :)
Could you please tell me which apps are lacking the progressbars ?

That's already a 2 years old artwork, and I think it's high time to update it ;)

The application I noticed it in originally was Transmission. I'll post any others I notice it in, the problem is a) I don't use a lot of apps with progress bars, and b) due to the coloring issues I can't use this as my primary theme.

I didn't realize till after my original comment how old this was, truly a good thing to stand such a test of time, or else I just like old things :P I look forward to updates if you make changes :D

actually, I tried to install this on xubuntu. But it didn't show up in my preferences, while I'm sure I put it into the right folder. Any guesses?

You need to extract the archive file till you get the Minimum Suite folder which include all the 4 themes in tar.gz format.
You can then install each of them independantly by drag'n dropping them in the gnome-appearance window or extracting them to your .themes folder :)

Hope it helps ;)

yeah, i know how that works. The problem was that the owner of the file was me, not root. after changing those things with chown, chgrp and chmod it worked. :)
problem is: gtk decorates the window borders with the "albatross"-standard buttons - currently im using "gtk-window-decorator --replace" as window decorator. Any advice?

Is their anyway I can make the inactive buttons grayout instead of having that pixelated effect?

Great theme besides that :thumbsup: :)

Great metacity theme. I never found a theme that would have the simple minimalistic design that this one has.

Most minimalist themes use tiny pixel fonts and lack contrast big-time (or have too much contrast), but this has none of that crap, so great job man, very nice theme.
