Flow Publisher's description
from Trent McPheron
A nice and light theme for the GNOME desktop
The Flow theme should not be installed using the appearance properties dialog! Untar it manually to ~/.themes or /usr/share/themes. Otherwise, the Flow-Common folder will not be included, and it is absolutely necessary.
To flow means to move as a fluid from one position to another, or to move or match smoothly, gracefully, or continuously. This theme does all of the above.
This theme is based on the Murrine version of Shiki-Colors by perfectska04, and requires the git version of Murrine. It has evolved greatly from Shiki-Colors, in many ways, but is still designed to work with Gnome-Colors. I thank perfectska04 for his excellent work on the entire Gnome-Colors suite.
There are two main features to this theme. The first is its general look; contrasting but not glaring. Smooth, with a faint gloss that's enough to look lustrous, but not enough to look gaudy or fragile.
The second and main feature is its sheer customizability: this theme is completely modular. The meat of the theme is specified in .rc files. The gtkrc file, in addition to color scheme definition and icon size definition, includes these modules. This means that you can enable and disable a certain feature or customization with nothing more than the addition or removal of a single #.
The following customizations are available as of the current version:
- Normal or dark colored panels
- Blended, light, or dark menus
- Blended, light, or dark toolbars
- Normal or dark decorations, as well as the option to replace the selected colors with normal colors for them
- Enhancements to xfdesktop
- Enhancements to xfce4-panel
- Blended style for xfce4-panel, for use with maximus or equivalent functionality
- Bold text for panel menus
- White popup menus, ala Mac OS
This theme includes all of the Shiki color schemes in Shiki-style configurations, as well as an additional teal one called Sublime. It also includes a replacement for Radiance with the Radiance colors, and a version of that with a teal selection color called Seafoam.
Included on this page is a download link to get the Gnome-Sublime and Gnome-Light icon sets used by Flow-Subime, Flow-Seafoam, and Flow-Radiance.
GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environmentвЂ”the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating systemвЂ”entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things вЂњjust workвЂќ.
