GTK3 Themes

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 7, 2012, 7:55 PM


I'm sorry to say this but I am abandoning any GTK3 theme making from now on. Upstream is impossible to work with and GNOME 3 has become a complete mess in regard to third party theme making. As if GNOME Shell isn't bad enough sometimes with every version being broken, GTK3 is even worse. For those of you who wish to make GTK3 in the future, good luck, you'll need it.

Honestly, Windows and OS X actually look more attractive to me right now.

I'm not leaving dA, just pondering what customisation to do next.

I use e17 (hint).

But there's lots of theme breakage, because the API isn't yet stable. So you're probably not interested.

Nah, did play around with Qt Creator at one point and it was pretty good.

Why not switching to KDE, then? Rather than Windows and Mac... :-p

This is sad news, but I understand where you are coming from. I was so frustrated with the version of GNOME-Shell 3.4 included with Precise - it was broken from the beginning!!

I switched to Xubuntu because of the frustrations I have with GNOME-Shell and Unity. Xubuntu is very nice!
Perhaps you would consider theming Xubuntu? From looking on xfce-look.org it looks like X still uses GTK and GTK2 themes.

Well, I wish you best in your future endeavors. I hope to see you theme making later (hopefully some of the crap with GNOME-Shell and Unity will be settled soon), but regardless best luck to you.

Yeah, pretty much my thoughts too. But there is nowhere to go. :(
