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.

Please try to keep up the good work and try to get this thing into a repository for Kubuntu.
Also an update for KDE 4.4 is needed

Just so everybody knows, I am working on the KDE 4.4 version of Oxygen-Molecule. I've been a bit strapped for time, though, which is why I haven't completed it yet. I will be using the "Oxygen-Cold" color scheme to avoid having to redo all the pixmaps. So far, I'm excited, because I've been able to get the background gradients to match almost perfectly! Even better than with the KDE 4.3 version!

In KDE 4.4 the colors changed a little, so the current Oxygen Molecule doesn't match. :(

Thank you!
But you made small mistake:
list_header-prelight.png, list_header-pressed.png, list_header-prelight.png
are removed, but from gtkrc not completely

grep -Ri list_header-prelight.png kde44-oxygen-molecule -B1 -A1
kde44-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc- state = PRELIGHT
kde44-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc: file = "ListHeaders/list_header-prelight.png"
kde44-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc- border = { 1, 1, 3, 3 }
--
kde44-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc- state = SELECTED
kde44-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc: file = "ListHeaders/list_header-prelight.png"
kde44-oxygen-molecule/gtk-2.0/gtkrc- border = {1, 1, 3, 3 }

This command may help you:
kde44-oxygen-molecule $ for f in `grep -Rv ^# .|grep file|awk -F'"' '{print $2}'`;do find|grep -q ${f}||echo ${f} not found;done
ListHeaders/list_header-prelight.png not found

Great work, I only have one question,

why do colors like so weird on gtk apps, i will post some screenshots to demonstrate:
-using default color scheme

[/url]

-using your color scheme:

in the second screenshot, windows are little darker but still look strange.

It is not possible using the pixbuf engine to get the window decoration to match the color of the contents in all cases. The following GTK windows won't fully match the gradient:
- Any window without a menu bar (such as the file picker in your screenshot)
- Smaller windows
- Some GTK apps will have spots of solid background color rather than the gradient, and other anomalies (example: scrollbar steppers in Firefox). Unfortunately, the more exaggerated gradient effect used in KDE 4.4 causes these artifacts to be more obvious than in previous versions. I have yet to find a way around this. It might not be possible with the pixbuf engine.

I think you're better off setting the window color to be the same color of the window decoration when the gradient is disabled (i.e. "window decoration background style" is set to "solid color" in the appearances settings). That way KDE 4.4 users can, as usual, set window-specific overrides for GTK apps to disable the decoration gradient. It looks better having some apps without the gradient but proper color matching than having them with a gradient and mismatched colors.

Okay, I posted a download link to an alternate gtkrc file that disables the background gradient. Please try it and let me know what you think.

Thanks. That looks much better. It looks great in fact. (Notice on the gradient version that, e.g., if you have the bookmarks/history sidebar open the title bar (where it says "Bookmarks") is a completely different color from the rest of the window background around it. On the alternate gtkrc this doesn't happen.)

Looking at your screenshot a second time, I can see a few things that you can do to improve the visual appearance.

1 - Enable the separator between title bar and window contents. It helps to mask the disparity a bit. You can do this by going into System Settings -> Appearance -> Windows -> select the "Fine Tuning" tab and check the box for "Draw separator...".
2 - While you are in the window decoration properties, you may want to change your window glow color to fit the theme better. You can do this under the "Shadows" tab. I have my window glow set as such:
- Inner Color: #B2DAFF
- Outer Color: #346186
3 - In your GTK file pickers, right-click in the file selection area and de-select "Show size column". This will lighten the colors in the file selector.

If anybody knows why the colors change with the file size shown, I'm all ears... I couldn't find anything in the theme's gtkrc file that is responsible for this behavior.

Nice work, but I see a few things that could be improved.

You didn't change the background color in the gtkrc. Because of this, GIMP (and other gtk apps) now look...weird.

Modifying the tab pixmap doesn't affect tab spacing except in firefox (because firefox isn't a "true" gtk app). Modify the tab-overlap value in the gtkrc as well, so other apps with tabs (like GIMP) have the correct look. (modifying this setting won't affect tabs in firefox)

What resolution/size is your screen?
The new menubar pixmap looks good for small window sizes, but not bigger ones.
(this is on a 1280x720 screen, screens this resolution are usually the bare minimum nowadays )
Yes, I know that it can never be perfect, but I would hate to be the one with a screen that has a 1900x1200 resolution (these are much more common than you would think....) Because it doesn't line up so well here.

Keep up the good work!!!

Okay I found what was wrong with the menu bar gradient.
I went to KDE system settings > Appearance > colors > options
and turned shading all the way up. (it was in the middle before).

I also fixed most of the problem with background color in gimp, but a line still remains so it is not entirely fixed yet.
To half-fix it:
The color in style "notebookbg"
and/or style "nautilus-location"
must be changed to #cccac9
