Hello,

By the looks of it it looks like Stella 7 will feature MATE as its main DE. I am tempted to just leave the default theme in and perhaps just add the Stella logos over it.

Do you guys have some other suggestions? Which are your favourite MATE themes?

Hi,
very good news.
My favorite theme is Faenza Cupertino.
I`m happy that you will choose Mate for Stella 7, maybe it`s the best choice.

Hi,
do you talk about the plymouth theme?

No, not plymouth, just MATE itself.

The theme is what tells you it's Mate. That sounds good. Even though Mate is not quite Gnome2, it's a big step ahead of Gnome3, or any of the other choices out there. Smile

Good work.

Brain fart --- now any metacity theme will work, correct? IE, anything GNOME2 could take in (Icons, Controls, Windows) should work out from what I am seeing, but as I am either in GNOME3 or Cinnamon these days, I figure I would ask first.

Alex,

Can you point me to a download link or something? Not familiar with the tango icons.

Nux,

Sorry if it may be a nonsense suggestion, because I used tango icon theme when I was a Fedora user (Xfce).
I think it was provided from rpmfusion repo.

I find Flattr icons very nice on Mate, they have replaced Faenza which I used long time

With what theme are you using these icons in MATE?

BTW I had them packaged for EL7.

FIY RHEL will rebase to gnome 3.14:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1174442

IMO this might requalify gnome as the default desktop since it brings many improvements and better support for lots of things (eg. high dpi displays)

I agree. GNOME 3.14 is a huge improvement over 3.8.

Hi, on my mate system I like Clearlooks Phenix, it is already packaged in Fedora. https://github.com/jpfleury/clearlooks-phenix
Classic and modern at the same time.

As for the icons goes, speaking of classic yet updated I like Cheser Icons http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Cheser+Icons?content= 113386
They formally support Gnome and Xfce, but I use them on Fedora Mate without issues.

For the GTK theme, Ubuntu Mate recently presented a modern theme specifically design for MATE called https://github.com/snwh/yuyo-gtk-theme it seems a good piece of design, maybe a color variation could be good for Stella?

By the way I agree that the default "Menta" Gtk theme (although I prefer the non-default blue variant) is very good

Just my 2 cents Smile

I have added clearlooks-phenix, thanks for suggesting it, please test.

Re Yuyo, I did try it some time ago and am not impressed. It looks shiny at the first use, but the more you use it you really it's not as ergonomic as it should; it lacks some proper contrasts and borders between stuffs. At least it's not for me.

That was fast!
Thank you Wink

I will test it, but I can only do under GNOME, I installed the default DE with CentOS 7.

Yep I think that you're right about yuyo, this is the reason why I prefer phenix or Menta...

Ok I tested Clearlooks-phenix and at least with GNOME it seems to have some problems...

http://i.imgur.com/fyjUASL.png

Seems gtk3 related. Maybe you grab the wrong version? According to https://github.com/jpfleury/clearlooks-phenix the right version for the GTK3.8 that we have in CentOS is version 4.

On another note, I tried to install Flattr-icons too, mentioned above... are all those KDE dependencies all right?

Thank you very much, sorry for bother

What packages do you have installed? I would imagine you'd need both gtk2 and gtk3 versions, ie:
clearlooks-phenix-gtk2-theme.noarch
clearlooks-phenix-gtk3-theme.noarch

Sorry if I ask you again, but are you sure to have package the right version? yum info tell me that this is version 6, but looking at https://github.com/jpfleury/clearlooks-phenix#installation it says

Quote:
for GTK 3.8: download Clearlooks-Phénix v4;


maybe it's just that?

I don't want to bother, just trying to help Smile

After manually downloading and installing v4 I can say that this is the right version for centOS 7 and it solves the problem! Smile

I have added v4 and deleted the v6 packages, let me know if it works as expected.
