You can use the GTK environment variable GTK_THEME=elementary to launch an app with the elementary theme. For example, running GTK_THEME=elementary pantheon-files will launch the elementary Files app using the elementary GTK theme.

First, as a little background for those who don't know what pixel-perfect scrolling means. (I didn't know myself, but I did some research and want to share that here.) Usually when you scroll on a touchpad (right edge or two-finger) or a tablet device, what happens is that the X server intercepts those signals and translates them to normal mouse wheel ...

This is the intelligent input bus - is an input method framework for multilingual input. If you don't use any different keyboard layouts for ex. japanese /asian etc. Try to disable it in System Setting -> Language (something like input method from ibus to none) Try to killall ibus-daemon and tell us if cpu is still has a high load.

The question is still valid and I found a way: any folder <FOLDER> could be chosen and then a /share/themes/ folder should be created inside it. Afterward any GTK3 theme could be put inside the latter and renamed to the name of the CURRENTLY ACTIVE THEME. At last, this command will make an app use the renamed theme instead of the currently active one: ...

When you followed the steps to install development versions of xfce-panel and the indicator plugin, you built them from source, and sudo make install installed them into /usr/local. In order to clean out that installation you need to manually delete those installed files. Unfortunately there is no way to do this automatically. However, what you can do is ...

Edit the files in the directory: /usr/share/Themes/[Themename]/gtk-3.0/apps/unity.css To avoid clobbering the original them it's better to copy the them to your personal area under a different name then make the changes. The theme will appear in the theme chooser as the name you copied the them to. Per-user theme ares: ~/.themes/[Theme Name] ...

You can get the contents of a TextBuffer using get_text(): start_iter = self.textbuffer.get_start_iter() end_iter = self.textbuffer.get_end_iter() text = self.textbuffer.get_text(start_iter, end_iter, True) And save it like any other text file: with open(save_file, 'w') as f: f.write(text) I suggest that ...

Fortunately, all Unity decorations are defined by the Unity gtk3 theme (see this document), and one can remove the top decoration with one little change. However, just to be on the safe side, I do make a backup copy of a whole theme. Here is what I do: cd /usr/share/themes sudo cp -a Radiance Foopance cd Foopance sudo cp index.theme index.theme.orig sudo ...

Using Ubuntu 14.04, I successfully managed to get back my missing scrollbar arrows using the above information. However, I had to do a few more things. I had to open System Settings -> Appearance to see which Theme I was using (Which turned out to be Radiance). Then I had to go to /usr/share/themes and look for the folder that corresponded to the name of ...

Requested 'gtk+-3.0 >= 3.10.0' but version of GTK+ is 3.6.1 The program needs at least GTK+ v3.10 but you only have GTK+ v3.6.1 Ubuntu 14.04 will have GTK+ v.3.10. For other version of Ubuntu you need to either find a PPA or other unofficial packages for GTK+ v3.10 or compile it yourself, too (which includes compiling some more libs needed by GTK+).

Depending on your current used theme, you can either (which is more likely and easy found out) edit/change/modify the graphics .svg or .png, like shown in the screen-shot below or by changing the color-coded values for visually drawn window graphics in the themes .ccs files. Find out, what theme you are using. Browse through the graphics folders (first) to ...
