Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

FYI, some screenshots of the cinnabar theme.  Titlebar will be as in the desktop screenie.  Desktop theme is still a bit of a WIP:

grub splash

Note that the final cinnabar theme is down this thread at:

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

I like it! Though pretty much the only time I see the official theming is in the login screen - I do my own wallpapers and suchlike. But it will be nice to have a new color - not that I had any probem with good ol' Purpy...

I might upload pieces of it to git before too long so you'll be able to get it there.  I don't do the official packaging and integration into desktop-base so that will come later . . . maybe in time for a beta at the d1conf in April but certainly by the time of the official beowulf stable release.

ChuangTsu . . . it's morphing.  Here's a temporary link.  It needs a different folder color for sure:

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

I will recolor all the icons once everything else is in place.  They will be a neutral color because of the way the color interacts differently with the intense BG colors and the theme.  And no . . . I am not going to do a dark theme.  wink

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

Here's an update . . . I FINALLY found a darker color that worked to hilight selected items.  It's only taken about 4 months.  LOLOL!  I revisited that option after the lighter version morphed a bit and I was unable to find an icon color that worked in the file manager as well as the desktop.  That's because color is fickle and can be perceived quite differently depending what is nearby.   It can drive one to madness . . . no kidding.  big_smile

LOL....Looks great.  Of course if someone is red/green color blind it will be all shades of grey, but 2 instead of 50.  smile

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

Not exactly my taste, but quite a unique color combination - that's cool as it makes it easy to recognize a desktop with these colors easily as beowulf.

Excellent theme and very befitting of the distro name for 3.0. Looks almost battlelike.

Very perceptive, Lysander.  You totally understand my  thought process in choosing that palette.  I should really post access to all the pieces so folks can test it.  It's on my list.

Nice! I'm more fan of dark themes but this is different compared to other distro's i've seen so far. I like it.

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

Here are the various parts of the cinnabar theme for those who want to give it a spin.  You'll have to add them manually.

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/cinnabar-grub.zip - Boot screen.  Goes in /usr/share/desktop-base

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/cinnabar-slim.zip - Graphics for slim login - Goes in /usr/share/slim/themes/

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/cinnabar_lightDM.zip - Graphics for lightDM login.  Not quite sure where this goes and too tired to poke around.

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/cinnabar_wallpaper.zip There are several places these can go.  Pick your favorite spot.

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/CPC-final.zip - Clearlooks-Phenix-Cinnabar window theme.  Goes in /usr/share/themes  Be sure to choose it in  Applications > settings > Appearance and Window Manager

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/cinnabar-g … ons.tar.gz - Goes in /usr/share/icons. Be sure to choose it in  Applications > settings > Appearance > Icons   Extract the cinnabar-gnome-icons using this command which will preserve the inode- sym links tar xvzfh cinnabar-gnome-icons.tar.gz

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/52gtk3-noo … lbar-nocsd - Fixes the disappearing scrollbar. Goes in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/

https://dev1galaxy.org/files/beo-gdo-32dk.png -  icon for panel "Applications".  Change under Properties.

Enjoy!

LightDM backgrounds go in /usr/share/images/desktop-base.  The easiest way to get the images used is to change the names to greeter-wide-large.png and greeter-narrow-large.png, after saving the originals of course.

I think the "proper" way use the new beo- file names is to alter the /etc/alternatives/desktop-lightdm-background symlink to point to the new name.

Thanks dxrobertson.  I seem to remember that from years ago.  One other thing I do is to overwrite the current default themes for grub and slim keeping the old names because they are so intertwined with desktop-base etc. With the the desktop stuff, renaming is no issue.  Hopefully there will be installable deb files before too long.

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

Can this be put together in an installable Devuan package please? I tried to figure out where to put the files from the zips, but the detail given in this thread is insufficient for me and my experience.

BTW: after the latest Beowulf update mit lightdm login splash screen is displaying Debian 10! Would like to get rid of this.

It will be eventually.  Problem is that I play with the crayons but am clueless about packaging.  I passed it on to someone maybe 2 months ago to do that but it fell into a big black hole.  I could help you find where to put things if you ping me on irc freenode sometime.

Re: Meet cinnabar (Beowulf default theme)

Finally got around to doing the Beowulf cinnabar theme for openbox.  Since I have barely used openbox, setting up the default look was a challenge for me.  You'll need spacefm to get the default wallpaper.  Thanks to fsmithred for the pointers.
