Meet the Daedalus sapphire theme

Here's a sneak peek of the Daedalus "sapphire" theme. It's presented on black because the light background of the forum kills the intense blue which has a "glow" on the desktop:

This theme was inspired by the jewel-like waters of the Mediterranean sea where Deadalus was born on the island of Crete:

Note that a 1080p specific background option will be available for Daedalus thanks to Lars Noodén!

More to come . . .  smile

Nice theme. Thank you for your work!

Beautiful work! Very well done to all involved.

@xinomilo: what a gorgeous place to live, I am very jealous.

Re: Meet the Daedalus sapphire theme

Definitely prefer the second (light on dark) version. Nice colours!

Re: Meet the Daedalus sapphire theme

Thanks for the feedback. All the pieces of the Clearlooks-Phenix-Sapphire theme are here and here if you want to give it a try.  Not quite sure about the openbox themerc. I asked for testers but no one ever responded . . .

It's the first I have heard of this. I installed the Clearlooks-Phenix-Deepsea-theme and the openbox themerc looks homogeneous and accords with the gtk theme.

Oh, Aitor . . . THANK YOU!! Could you please post some screenshots? I only adjusted the hexes in the file with what I think should work but have never actually seen it!! It might need some tweaking . . .

Oops I need to learn how to read . . . The deepsea theme for Chimaera is fine. We're talking about the sapphire theme for Daedadus!!

Re: Meet the Daedalus sapphire theme

Here's the themerc for openbox with the sapphire hexes. The one in the current package is unchanged from the original clearlooks-phenix theme. Replace the one in the sapphire theme package with this one. If you can figure out why it doesn't work,  please let us know.
