Call for participation: an ubuntu default theme lead by the community?

I imagine so because that’s the weekly (or rolling, if on edge) release of communitheme and the 18.10 Deb is static?

Can yaru.snap still be used on 18.10?
Will this new changes be applied when available?
Why yaru.snap was not the default in 18.10?
This new feature works for snap applications also?

We can release the scripts, once completed, however some modifications are required in other packages as well, like the @Eskander post-install hook

This is the current look of nautilus 3.30 on Cosmic. I installed it from the Cosmic GNOME3-staging PPA.

I guess that the orange underline in the headerbar should be trimmed a few pixels shorter?

Yes we are aware of that thanks for the PPA info I will install that on my cosmic VM

That’s the github issue :slight_smile:

Hi guys!
I wanted to ask here for testers for my Yaru-Blue GTK and Gnome-Shell theme!
There are scripts for installing and removing (very simple, I’m not a cpding guy…), I hope they work, but do a backup of following directory:
/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/Yaru
Yes, this will be replaced, this was the only way I found to recolor the login screen (not lock screen).
I would really appreciate it, if I can get feedback.
For the future I plan to modify the icon pack and maybe add an option for color choosing while installing.


The theme can be downloaded here.

I put it on my to-do list.
Do you mean the GTK theme for MATE in typical MATE green?
Should be possible.

Pretty sure @Wimpress would be interested in making it (or something like it) the default in Ubuntu MATE if it worked out! There’s screenshots of that Ubuntu flavour on its website, seems like they kept the orange in the close button but you could attempt to change that with Yaru-Green/Yaru-MATE.

@jaggers, would it be possible to have the set of tiles with a almost white bg? I am investigating a different method to colorize the squircle which keeps better the different tones, but I believe the grey background is affecting the result a bit

Absolutely, I’m away tonight but can send more squircles when I get back tomorrow?

If the grey affects the tone, then making the squircle white would fix that, but at the expense of removing the lighter highlight at the top edge (because there’s no longer any difference between normal and highlight in the base squircle).

I suspect the optimal solution would be if I provided two separate layers for each squircle: one png with the shape in white and one with extra details like the highlights (which are semitransparent white). If you colourise the squircle and then superimpose the other layer on top, you should get perfect colour without losing the Suru highlight on the top edge.

I am interested in using Yaru in Ubuntu MATE, but we’d need to keep the accent MATE green.

Of course, take all the time you need.
Indeed the white squircle would make harder to keep the same details, your idea looks good

I’m working on it. I tried to work with variables inside the gtk.css but this didn’t work.
I don’t know how less/scss work and this is also too much work to learn it for me.
So, I need to create a MATE color palette and modify css and graphics. It’s not hard to do it but it takes time.

A tool where I can simply create my own color palette with many colors and compare it with another palette would be great

Latest development

  • replaced golang lib with convert to get the most relevant color
  • replace colorize-image with tint-image which keeps the color shades in squircle base image

Next step will be to try with new squircle and eventually work on HSV components

Or you can simply change a value of selected_bg_color in colors.scss

Looking better and better @c-lobrano

This is also possible, but there are still some graphics for GTK2 and Gnome-Shell.
There are alsoore colors to change and the scss needs to be compiled.
Replacing the colors is easy and quick.

Of course everything can be done without using golang at all at this point :smiley:

@c-lobrano if you check your mail, I’ve sent you some pngs for the two layer approach.

For each size, the idea is to take the “base” png and replace the white with whatever colour you want:

…and then paste the “detail” png on top of it:

But I’ll also send a one layer version that’s almost white in case the two layer version doesn’t work.
