Description:

Oxygen-Molecule is a theme for GTK+ applications to provide a uniform look when used under the KDE 4.4 desktop environment. It was originally based on the kde4.2-oxygen (modified) 0.3 GTK theme by Dennis Schmitz (which was itself based on work originally by Kim Kahns) (url: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/kde4.2-oxygen+(modified)?content=99926)

On top of the original theme, I have made the following changes:
- changed colors to match default KDE 4.4 color scheme, including hue adjustment of all pixmaps
- reworked all of the pixmaps and changed measurements for improved visual appearance
- created new spinner buttons, since the original spinners often looked mismatched with the surrounding pixmaps
- linked the GTK theme with the Oxygen icon set (thank you Craig Drummond for showing me how to do this).

In addition, beginning with version 3.1, Oxygen-Molecule features a “flat” mode which disables the background gradient. Some GTK+ apps don't play nice with the background gradient used in the default Oxygen-Molecule theme, causing patches of the wrong shade of grey to appear in the background. Oxygen-Molecule's flat mode solves this problem, and can be enabled on a per-application basis.

Additional documentation and installation instructions are included in the download.

I am also providing my source graphics files (created with GIMP) for anyone who wants to try making their own color variants.

Notes for the source graphics files: layer names in square brackets indicate the color from the KDE color scheme. There are many graphics files missing... for these, you will just need to edit the theme PNG files (not included in source graphics download--get them from the theme).

Good luck!




Changelog:

7-29-2010: Added COPYING file to archive.

3.2:
- Redesigned color scheme to use less extreme shading. This looks better for both KDE and GTK+ apps, in my opinion, and also helps everything to blend a little better. For users upgrading from version 3.1 or earlier, please set your KDE color shading to 50% (see step 7 in the installation guide).
- Tweaked menubar gradient to look better for wider windows, but at the expense of the appearance of narrower ones. My reasoning is that most people use their GTK apps either fullscreen or as large windows.
- Adjusted the size of the active menubar item selector, and further fine-tuned the color of the menu item selector.

3.1:
- Added new “flat” mode, which removes the background gradient from windows and tabs.
- Fixed the tree view colors.
- Increased spacing between tabs to better match the Oxygen theme.

3.0:
- Updated theme to match KDE 4.4 widgets and shading.
- Almost all pixmaps were completely redone.
- Countless tweaks, including thinner buttons and entry boxes, new spinner buttons and better tab spacing.
- Removed unnecessary clearlooks reference.
- Changed theme install location in documentation from /usr/share/themes to /usr/local/share/themes.

Further changes are listed in the documentation included with the theme.

 Very good...

Looks very good, and blends quite well. Couple of niggles:

1. You should set the KDE button order
2. You can set Gtk to use the oxygen icon theme, and provide a mapping from standard gtk icon names to the oxygen equivalent.
3. The contents of oxygens buttons do no move when the button is pressed.
4. Oxygens toolbar buttons are different to the standard buttons - you should be able to map different pixmaps to these.
5. The text on oxygens tabs doesnt move.

I modified your gtkrc file to set the icon theme name, button order, and button shift:

The following is a Gtk rc file that does the KDE->Gtk icon mapping (and is generated from QtCurve):
http://home.freeuk.com/cpdrummond/development/Oxygen-Molecule/icons.rc

...just thought you might find these useful. (Using those files I have no need for the icons in your tarball)

Wow! Thanks, CraigD! You obviously know a lot more about creating themes than I do. When I get some time, I'll update Oxygen-Molecule with your changes.

 change menubar color

I really like your Theme, but there is one problem:

I changed Oxygen's colors and so I need to modificate your Theme to fit my colors and needings. Evertying works just fine, but the menubar (place where file, edit, view, help and so on are lokated) stucks to your default settings! could you tell me where in the gtkrc or in the grafiks I can adjust the color?
Would be so thankfull for an answer

Unfortunately, many of the colors are determined by the pixmaps. You will need to edit the pixmaps themselves to accomplish this. You can do it in GIMP.

/gtk-2.0/others/menubar.png

You will probably also want to edit:
/gtk-2.0/others/toolbar.png

 Missing round corners

Hi there, thanks for this great theme. It is really the there is at the moment.

I wanted to ask you about the menus e.g. when you click on "File", "Edit" or something like that. They are round in QT but not in your theme. Do you think you can handle this? Is it anyway possible with GTK? Thats really the last issue, everything else is nearly perfect for me.

This is currently a limitation of the pixbuf engine that is used to make this theme. It doesn't support transparency. I tried making the menu corners round, but where the corner clipped off, it just showed as black, so I had to make it square again.

 Icons not working...

Hey love the theme thanks.

I'm running Fedora 11, and the icons do not work, I have added a .gtkrc-2.0 with what your readme dictates.
Help?
Thanks,
Josh

Is your oxygen icon theme located at /usr/share/icons/oxygen? The Oxygen-Molecule icon theme uses symbolic links to the original oxygen icons to save disk space. If Fedora stores the oxygen icons at a different location, then you can create a symbolic link as noted in my instructions.

Hi folks!

I just wanted to thank all of you who have contributed ideas and code changes to Oxygen-Molecule. I am in the process of preparing a house to sell, amid other things, so I likely won't be able to make any changes to the theme until at least mid-July. I do intend to incorporate the changes I've been sent, and also create a version for KDE 4.3 users.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
