Thanks for the reply (and work of course)! :)

Gnome 3.12 has some nice features (e.g. flat tab view, popups, etc.), are/have you bringing this to Orion? :D

Orion already supports PopOvers. About new tab design. It'll arrive soon.

Thanks for your great work! I also like the way windows are presented in Gnome now, just the control buttons inside the title-bar. :)

Hi, thanks for the link. But when I download the themes (GTK3) I even find a gtk2 rc and openbox folder. Are they need to be coded too? I mean is that generated from GTK 3 itself or needed to be learnt and coded seperately?

Thanks.
Reply
:iconsatya164:
satya164 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes. They need to be learnt separately. About openbox themes, I think Archlinux has great documentation. Don't know of something similar for GTK2.

Congratulations on yet another great success! What are those icons? I'm using MyElementary, but those don't blend with a bright panel well.

Those are elementary-xfce icons github.com/shimmerproject/elem…

If you use Ubuntu, it's available in the default repos.

To be honest I don't see a difference between this and your other themes, like Evolve. Mind sharing those icons?

Evolve is much simpler and lacks any visual effects. It's also darker.

And you should check Numix. It's something entirely different :)

Inoki-Sakaeru Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Numix is wonderful. Don't get me wrong, I like your stuff very much, but when I had a look at the screen and compare from first view, don't see much of a difference except for the window decorator buttons.

I love this theme, I just love it. Along with the Faenza icon theme, the orion theme really pimps the lxde desktop.
When will Orion be updated for gtk 3.8? I'm having to manually downgrade packages in arch... not a huge problem, but would love to see it happen.

Very nice, however I would like to see a chrome/chromium/Iron(best of the three) theme to match this, including scrollbars.

Hi! I used the gtk-3.0 folder in your theme to patch this theme [link] and the result is perfect. Thank you.

Same was the case with previous buttons :(

Anyways, you can use window buttons of Evolve with Orion. So problem solved!
