Please update for gnome 3.8! This is the only theme which fits perfectly together with my gtk- and icon theme, so I can hardly await an update for my up-to-date gnome installation..

Can I expect it to be updated the next time, or should I switch to another theme instead?
thanks in advance

Ok thanks I'll try it out :) May I ask how you know which classes/id's have to be used in gnome-shell.css? I know some CSS, but I have no idea which rules are followed when this file is interpreted. :'( Is there a documentation, guidline or something else?

thanks

Hm thanks for this info =D I'm trying out your Elegance Colors theme at the moment, it's simply beautiful. The only problem is that it's very slow and laggy, much more than the default shell theme. Removing all background-gradients, shadows and insets doesn't seem to affect anything...

satya164 Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm... It shouldn't be. Can you run "elegance-colors start" in a terminal and see if the theme reloads too quickly?

:iconmilli5-961227:
milli5-961227 Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
Tried it, but didn't seem to reload anything.. Command didn't start in background, i had to manually terminate it via [Ctrl+C]. Output:

$ elegance-colors start
[INFO 17:13:32] Starting process
[WARN 17:13:32] 20611 does not seem to be elegance-colors
^C
$

Panel menus etc. are working fine, no lags or something else. But Overview animations are very laggy, sometimes they only consist of 4 frames or less.. I haven't noticed this problem in any other shell themes yet, Elegance for example works fine :'( Increasing ANIMATION_TIME variable in /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/overview.js removes these lags, but this is no perfect solution :D

Hmm... If you reduce the transition duration, does it make any difference?

I'm not willing to update any other themes except Elegance Colors since it is a lot of work, and Elegance Colors already provides the same look with more features.

This is the best theme for GS on Ubuntu Gnome 13.04.
Works well with 3.6, and I will use this version, while extensions will ported to 3.8. But I hope you will update it _after_ 3.8 will be the stable version. So don't hurry. :)

I had an issue with border-bottom-width - that 1px space between maximized window and top panel is a out of place and if wallpaper is not solid color in that area it gives strange effect of a little curvaceous line Oo
Fixed it by changing value in gnome-shell.css.

Go to '/usr/share/themes/Elegance/gnome-shell' and edit gnome-shell.css and change value in line 'border-bottom-width' to 0px (instead of 1px).

Try Elegance Colors. I forgot to remove the icon while updating and will update another version though.

The only problem I see (still on 3.4-have not checked if it persists on 3.6) is that on the calendar when a date has something scheduled it should show differently than the others, while it does not. Otherwise perfect, thanks!

Ok some suggestion, the little dialog when changing volume still looks as the default gnome-shell theme, the same with the root dialog (to enter yous password for installing and formating stuff) doesn't match the whole theme, for example, when switching the computer off, that dialog has one grey buttons and others black, but not the password dialog. Other thing is the rhythmbox control showed in the new botton bar has always the button 'forward' enabled and looks awfull.

"the little dialog when changing volume still looks as the default gnome-shell theme"
hmm... it doesn't support much customization except changing color. I don't have any idea how can I improve it, since Elegance is actually a neutral theme with no colors.

About the password dialog and other dialog, the grey buttons are the focused ones. I have to make the focused buttons and entries distinct from others, so if you have any suggestions, then it is welcome.

By the way, could you please give me the link to the new texture to make it be showed as a background on the overview? Thanks!

:iconsatya164:
satya164 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The texture is in the theme package itself. It is named "noise-texture.png". To use it as a background in overview, you can use the following code,

#overview {
background: #333 url(noise-texture.png);
background-repeat: repeat;
}

Or if you would prefer a transparent overview,

#overview {
background: url(noise-texture.png);
background-repeat: repeat;
}

You can use any color in place of #333 though.
