Devuan LXQt Themes

Hello, everyone! I'm the author of the Clearlooks and Leech theme ports to LXQt, and recently (today) created Devuan-colored versions of Clearlooks, after retooling it slightly.

I'm not sure if these will be useful to the Devuan community, if there's an LXQt "spin" or not like in some other distros, but would be happy if someone enjoyed using these :)

Code is found at https://github.com/AzumaHazuki/lxqt-themes-devuan for the interested. I have some other theme sets that are WIP (and if anyone finds bugs in these three please let me know). A Daedalus/Sapphire version will be coming soon-ish, once I can spin up a VM for it and get at all the pretty colors.

Here's hoping Devuan lasts a long, long time. I'm a Gentoo user but am very much anti-systemd and deeply appreciate what the project has done for init system freedom. Without you we very well may not have had Artix, for example. So, this is my way of trying to give back a little.

Re: Devuan LXQt Themes

Gday

Sounds great

Good to see more people rejecting the International Subverison of Linux and FOSS
which includes
- Copyright kernal/drivers
- Bloat
- Centralisation
- app stores
- re writing existing software to inject new teams/speech code and to force dependency on other bloatware
- SubvertD, Dbus, wayland, polickykit , pulseaudio, wireplumber, mono, python

I would like to see LXQT or LXDE migrating away from GTK2/3/4 and QT3/4/5
and use something else

Possibly looking into

LCL
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazarus_Component_Library
or

FLTK
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLTK

What ever is done I would recommend

Dont use
sourcehut
github
gitlab
Gnome
Ubuntu
Redhat
Google
Microsoft
Snap/flatpak

Consider a cheap VPS (Check out deals on lowendbox) to self host your own code server
instead of using a 'free host' corporation 'funded' 'free service'

Even the 'leader' / person in charge of XFCE has clearly stated
that he doesn't like traditional UI's , classic menu/desktop apparenace
and prefers the new 'modern' uis like 'gnome'

Yet these 'people' come into our spaces
subvert it
and call us names when we call out the intentional poltical subverison by paraistic scum

Re: Devuan LXQt Themes

Just finished the Sapphire theme! There weren't actually too many color changes -- in particular, most of the widget borders and viewports were the same as DeepSea -- so a lot of this was just some judicious use of sed's s operator smile

Re: Devuan LXQt Themes

Looks great, thanks.
Would the theme function with my LXDE too?
golinux in https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=40747#p40747 made me think this might be possible.

Sorry for the late reply! Unfortunately no, this is for LXQt only. LXDE is GTK2-based, so the Devuan projects GTK2/3/4 theme suites and Openbox or XFWM themes will work, though smile You already have what you need.

Re: Devuan LXQt Themes

Sorry for the long-ish bump here. Just want to let people know that soon(...-ish) there will be updates to the Devuan Clearlooks derivatives. I just refactored Clearlooks and Leech, and will be rebasing the Devuan collection on the new Clearlooks. ETA hopefully within 1-2 weeks!

Re: Devuan LXQt Themes

Refactoring is complete! Available at https://github.com/AzumaHazuki/lxqt-themes-devuan, as near-perfect copies of the GTK2 themes, right down to little details like scrollbars and sliders getting brighter when hovered over.

@charliebrownau

sourcehut is only trickier, but it doesn't look that bad.  codeberg.org and notabug are also probably options. The others, I agree completely.

As for "modern"

The modern look to put it bluntly, would be best described like this:

Imagine a huge sewer that explodes and the gunk from inside covers an entire neighborhood including your house, that would be modern.

Now imagine that never happened and things looked just fine, that would be decent.

big_smile

Modern and Decent very often conflict in today's world.

Has been this way since the mid 2000s, just a heads up. smile
