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).


Extract the version of the theme you want, i.e 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

Compatibility: GNOME 3.0/3.2

Added GNOME 3.2 compatible version.

Update - 2nd November 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.

Really amazing, hope you'll make it compatible with Gnome 3.4 someday!
