Holo by tiheum Holo by tiheum
This theme was previously known has 'Ice Cream Sandwich'.

An experimentation to mimic the new theme designed by Google for Android 4.0. It includes a Gnome-Shell theme, a GTK3 theme and some Metacity borders. A simple GTK2 theme is also provided.

GTK3 theme required Unico and Adwaita engines.
GTK2 theme required Murrine and Pixbuf engines.

I suggest to remove the globalmenu (Ubuntu users only) and move the window controls to the left of the titlebar.

Licence: GPLv3

Icons: Faience
Wallpaper: Architecture (I choose this one for a better contrast in my screenshots but you should prefer the default one: link)


CHANGELOG:

1.1
* Gnome-Shell: the wide black message train is replaced by a smaller one in the right corner
* GTK3: wider buttons in toolbars
* GTK3: an ugly red background I used for debuggind (and forget) is removed
* GTK2: no more borders for scrollbars

This theme is awesome (running on Openbox (Crunchbang)) however some applications have issues, while others are completely fine:

I'm trying to use the Holo GTK2/3 and gnome-shell themes in Arch Linux, which is running Gnome 3.6. I've noticed a few things that look like problems to me: in gnome-terminal, the menubar appears to be styled incorrectly. Also, in gnome-tweak-tool, the on/off toggle switches appear to be styled incorrectly.

I'm happy to entertain the idea that I've done something wrong... but I don't know what. ;) Any thoughts?

Hi. I love the theme, thanks.
Just one thing: the gnome-shell.css is missing an entry for .dash-label

for me, this results in black text on black background on the hover labels of the dash icons

(like shown here:
[link])

I copied this from the Zukitwo theme and it seems to work:

.dash-label {
color: #FFFFFF;
border-radius: 2px;
padding: 4px 12px;
background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
text-align: center;
-x-offset: 8px;
}

Maybe, but so much things have changed between Gnome 3.4 and 3.6 (especially in GTK3)... I must find some time and I have already a lot of work on other projects.

Given any thought to throwing your code up on github so the community can help you update it? I'd definitely chip in as I'm using Gnome 3.6.2 and would *loooove* to use this theme.

Looks really sweet. The gtk theme doesn't work for me though. Could it be because of compatibility issues between the theme gtk version and my currently installed one?

$ apt-cache policy libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0

Try to install the theme in /usr/share/themes instead of ~/.themes (you can use the PPA to do that simply). It seems there is a bug in Quantal with themes installed in your personnel folder.

which ppa are you talking about?
I don't see any holo theme for gnome 3.6 in the equinox ppa (just faience).

Seems like I've a bug with the holo theme.
cf. this screenshot : [link]

Hope you can help me to fix this! I really LOVE this theme

How I wish dA shows the date when the deviation is last updated. Showing just the year isn't enough. Now, onto the question, is this compatible with the latest GTK3 and Shell 3.6?

Yes, it was developed on Gnome 3.6. Although, I think it is not compatible with previous versions (but I did not try).

I am running Gnome 3.6.1 (Arch), and it seems that most of the text that should be black, is actually white, exactly like on SamheG's screenshot (except that nautilus background is white for me).

To simplify things get winetricks too!
You can safely multi-boot the two.

I have Unico and Adwaita engines installed, but when I select Holo as my GTK3 theme, the colors of all windows becomes white instead of black. Everything else works properly, though.
