SLAVE - GTK3 by half-left SLAVE - GTK3 by half-left
This is a GTK3 theme based on SLAVE for Windows 7 . The theme comes with a Metacity theme to match.

Special thanks to :iconguillendesign: for letting me port the theme. Original idea, design, Inspiration and icons by GuillenDesign Look at his gallery for the icons.

G4 Background by :iconalexander-gg: Alexander-GG

SLAVE GNOME Shell Theme


Instructions:

Unzip and copy to ~/.themes and use the GNOME Tweak Tool to switch theme and titlebar. To switch the theme manually, you will have to use the dconf-editor in GNOME 3.

Notes

The toolbar pattern scales and doesn't repeat so it will look squashed in small windows and there is no repeat option(There will be in GTK3.2).

The theme comes with WoW GTK2 since it's the closest GTK2 theme to SLAVE. Make sure you have the right GTK2 engines installed to use it(gtk2-pixmap engine). All credits are in the "Credits" file supplied with this theme.

SLAVE - GTK3 by *half-left As the DD suggester said - “The warm colour gamma is amazing and makes this theme one of the best for this environment.” I just have to add, that you should also pay your attention to the patterned details of the theme. ( Suggested by Delere and Featured by Alexander-GG )

Nice, looks awesome in GTK2 and Metacity, but it's all glitchy and messed up in GTK3. Gnome has updated it's design specs so perhaps you just need to apply some fixes to the CSS file(s)... The new Gnome styling ability includes animated transitions between styles, BTW. I'd love to use this theme but it's all messed up with the latest GTK3.

I don't use GNOME anymore and I was sick of the big changes after release with broken themes. Making themes for GNOME 3 is like working with alpha software.

I know the GTK devs remain oblivious to how they shoot themselves every release by shooting their theme developers in the head, but I am hoping you might find the motivation to port to 3.6. Just so you know that there are still folks who love your work and miss running it.

Blame GNOME, they changed the GTK syntax too much and made it even more complicated. It's like maintaining alpha software.

Sometimes after making a selection, I get a pink square.
Can you see the selection rectangle because it is gray opaque
instead of transparent.
Otherwise, I have not found the black icon pack, how to install it please?
Thank you for this theme, very nice.

The theme is not GNOME 3.2 compatible yet. I have made some progress porting it but it's slow because of the changes in 3.2.

This theme is gorgeous. Thank you for this great work! Makes not being able to easily change my default colours in ubuntu 11.10 unity much more bearable.

I think I did something stupid though and I'm not sure how. How do I get rid of this odd pink cursor bar thingy please? Its not there all the time, only if I use the keyboard in a folder.

I cant find that colour referenced in the gtk.css?

Hello,

This theme looks great but I have some display bugs.

It looks like the default Gnome-Shell theme is still overwriting the themes I install. How do you fix that ? It looks quite ugly actually. I have Ubuntu 11.10. Thanks.

reinstalling ubuntu today, it went wonky after a conflicting update. Used gnome shell Slave and loved. this one looks even more phenomenal. SLAVE is by far my fave, on both Win7 and Linux. thank god win7 is not as sensitive as Ubuntu has been, though linux themes are by far easier to install. just an opinion.
