Elementary Milk *updated* - Minimal Elementary Gtk by rhoconlinux Elementary Milk *updated* - Minimal Elementary Gtk by rhoconlinux
Hi guys,

What I bring today is another mod of the Elementary OS gtk theme.
It is called Milk just because it is mainly based on a minimal whitish (but not violently white) palette, combined with some light grays. The idea was to get a "flatter" "lighter" "brighter" theme. Maintaining all the details and cared work of the original theme.

Fix: pantheon-files selected folder description, now visible with brighter style and sharper font
Fix: now with new built-in window border, an elementary style lighter alternative
Fix: wingpanel item selection, now it's cooler ^_^
Added: New dark-mode triggered by some apps (foto, geye, terminal, etc)
And a couple of other small details.

You still are able to download the first version from here: [link]

Beside the palette, some of it's features are:
· gtk2 match (pain in the ass)
· wingpanel matching
· custom shadows

The window border is "Elementary Perfecto" in its "mac" flavour... you can download it from here [link]

Really hope you like it : )

How to install
1) Download and Unzip the file
2) copy it into /usr/share/themes will need sudo permissions to do that.
3) apply the stuff copying into a terminal this line:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'elementary_milk'
3a) revert changes entering
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'elementary'


ps. Icons are still work in progress... sorry, I had to deliver a report on my job jeje... : P
ps2. Y si tienen tiempo, pásense por acá, molto geek jeje:! [link]

Hola rhoconlinux, antes que nada enhorabuena por este gran tema. Comento aquí para pedirte un poco de ayuda. Verás, he hecho paso a paso lo que has puesto en la descripción, y no consigo instalar el tema... Bueno, sí se instala, pero mira como se ve: http :// puu . sh / cuqO2 / db2aec7070 . jpg

Te estaba intentando mandar un tree en la carpeta de themes pero la mierda de filtro anti-spam de DA no me deja. Así que si puedes decirme algún otro modo, perfecto.

Muchísimas Gracias!!

Vale, lo conseguí al final llendo al tweaks y activando Tema de la Interfaz a theme-elementary-milk. Se ve increíble!

how can i install window decoration on my Ubuntu Studio 13.10? (XFCE) is it possible?
rhoconlinux Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Hello ~dreamnymph , I think by pasting the uncompressed folder in /usr/share/themes/ would work. Sadly I'm not quite sure that it will performance properly (or be able to be used at all) cause the decoration was meant for gala (mutter, gnome) so, since that xfce uses a different window decorator engine... I won't give you much hope, but you can try! :)

Thanks for reply :) but doesn't work window decoration on XFCE :(
Which font use in this screenshot?
rhoconlinux Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013
YEah, I imagined that. :(
Sorry! : P

The font is overlock...

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name 'overlock 11'
where the font is "overlock" and the size is "11".
