Depends on  KDE 4.x
Downloads:  36810
Submitted:  Apr 30 2009
Updated:  Apr 7 2010

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.

I don't see any point in using it right now, when KDE4 look has changed in 4.3 release. I use QtCurve right now, and wait for new release (since author already said a new one with 4.3 look is on the way)

Working on the KDE 4.3 version; progress is slow right now. If all goes well, it will be automatically recolorable to match your KDE color settings :)

I really love this theme. It really makes GTK apps feel more like KDE4. I look forward for the next release with KDE color theme support! Keep up the good work!

I hope you all enjoy the new release, for use with KDE 4.3. I wanted to make it recolorable, but I was having problems with the recolorable pixbuf engine, so that will have to wait for now.

Oh, forgot to mention: As of version 2.0, Oxygen-Molecule no longer uses the Oxygen-Refit icon theme, but instead links directly to the Oxygen icon theme. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Oxygen-Molecule, follow the directions closely, because some things are different.

Hey thx for this.. i use your them for a long time. But i changed most of the blue colors cause i use a green desktop.. So a colorized version in the future would be realy nice.

What does direct linking to oxygen icons mean? Does the theme use the selected icon set or always oxygen? I ask cause i use a different icon set and it would be nice to have them in my gtk apps too.

Anyway thx for your great work.

To use a different icon set, set everything up per the instructions, then edit the /usr/share/themes/kde43-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc file and comment out line 8, which says 'include "icons.rc"'. Then change the icon theme name in line 12, which says 'gtk-icon-theme-name="oxygen"'

If you don't already know, you comment out a line by putting a '#' at the beginning of it.

Congratulations, this is just what I've been looking for! :) I was using the 1.0 release until now, and I have to say that 2.0 really rocks!
I hope you'll manage to fix the small known bugs, until then I'll keep following you!

 Window tabs look ugly...

 
 by warnec on: Sep 7 2009

I know there is no blending between window bars and window content for your theme , but don't know why's that - when I used QtCurve and set Nitrogen bar to "No blending" for Firefox, I got the same color for firefox window tab and window content.


It may be due to the fact that you use pixbuf engine, right? Is there any chance to fix/workaround this? Maybe change to qtcurve engine?

I guess I'm not sure what you mean. What are window tabs vs. normal tabs (as in Firefox)?

I meant the top window border, where Close, Minimize and Maximize buttons are ;)

Ok, so with the Nitrogen bar I use:


http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Nitrogen?content=99551

there are settings like "radial blending" and "no blending"

when "radial blending" is set, it is possible to get such a look like in here:

http://kde-look.org/content/preview.php?preview=1&id=99551&file1=99551-1.png&file2=99551-2.png&file3=99551-3.png&name=Nitrogen

so that there is no visible difference between the window top bar and the window content below. Of course, it only works for qt4 apps. GTK apps's window bars look worse (non-blended)

There is an option "no blending", which effects are exactly opposite - GTK apps's bars look nicely blended and qt4 apps' bars look bad.

Fortunately, Nitrogen allows to specify different settings to windows with a user-specified window class. That way I was able to set No Blending to window classes of all GTK apps I use, and I had a nice look in all windows.

But in only worked for QtCurve GTK theme. For your theme, it doesn't work. With No Blending, GTK apps' bars are much darker than the rest of the window - setting all windows (the GTK as well) to Radial Blending makes them look a little better, but there still is a color difference.

Can supply you with comparison screenshots, if you like ;)

Looking at your screenshot:

I think it's just what you achieved (when I look on the Firefox window in the background)

No idea how you managed that. Maybe it's a difference between the Ozone/Nitrogen bar? I reckon you use Ozone?

Yes, using Ozone or Oxygen window decorations with the default colors (or the colors included with the theme) should give you similar results to my screenshots.

So it was a matter of the colors. When I imported your color scheme, it worked fine with "radial blending" set to all windows.

BUT...

there are still some slight color differences :P

Sorry to bug you, but still can see it ;)

(Well, you could expect that from a guy who sees a difference between 57 and 60 FPS... really!)

See here:

http://img514.yfrog.com/img514/3057/ffbar.png


Oh, and BTW, are you sure your color scheme is the same as the default one? It is much brighter than the one I had listed as "Default". And, of course, my "Default" color theme and your GTK theme don't really like each other...

PS.: With QtCurve, the titlebar is blended perfectly both with your color scheme and mine default one...

Yeah, it's impossible for me to match the shading in every instance, because the Oxygen theme doesn't just scale the titlebar lighting effect when you change a window's size. So, the shading will match more or less depending on the width of your window. Also, the vertical shading is off for smaller windows. There's simply no way to make everything match perfectly, due to limitations in the pixbuf engine. I tried to go for settings that would work in the greatest number of cases.

QtCurve is definitely a lot more flexible when it comes to colors, but there is no way to make it emulate the Oxygen theme.

Unfortunately, the pixbuf engine doesn't support rounded corners. I even made pixmaps for it, but alas, they don't work (the corners appear black instead of transparent).

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
