Sonar - GTK3 by half-left Sonar - GTK3 by half-left
This is a GTK3 port of Sonar used by default in openSUSE.

The theme comes with the metacity theme and the GTK2 version. License and authors are in the theme directory. Note that the metacity theme and GTK2 theme are not my work, just distributed via GPL.

Wallpaper: Terraform-green (part of the official GNOME backgrounds).

Icon Theme: Sonar(openSUSE).


Instructions:

Extract the version of the theme you want, i.e Sonar-3.2.zip and then exact 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.

License: GPL3

Added GNOME 3.2 compatible version.

Update - 25th October 2011

Hello! First of all thank you for creating this port, Sonar is simply awesome. Secondly, are there any chances of getting an update which works with the latest GNOME versions?

As you know GTK3 theme Sonar is a part of the official openSUSE distribution: [link]

But in openSUSE 12.2 (GNOME 3.4) there are some glitches.

Could you please fix them:

Thank you very much!

There are some other glitches, so if you can fix at least some of them, I will create update for the package with this theme.

Sorry, I don't do GNOME themes any more, GNOME broke every new version anyway.

Thanks. Unfortunately not due to GNOME making it painful for us theme makers to update themes to new versions but there is nothing stopping someone else updating it.

Most excellent, will we see 3.4 compatibility? Looks like something happened with the icon-selection hues and stuff.

Thanks. 3.4 theme configuration is a bit confusing so I'm not sure how to go on this.

Phenomenally subtle but flavorful theme, thank you so much.

Where is the userChrome.css for Firefox (I assume) supposed to go?

Is it compatible with Firefox 10/Iceweasel 10?

So you extracted the Sonar-3.2.zip into ~/.themes(you should have a folder named Sonar-3.2) and the theme doesn't show in the gnome tweak tool under GTK theme?

The same happens for the GNOME Tweak Tool sidebar, etc.
