Yaru-Colors is a theme project to bringt different colors to Ubuntu's awesome Yaru theme.
Yaru-Colors themes conataing following:
- GTK 2 / 3 theme
- Gnome-Shell theme
- Yaru icons
- Ubuntu-Dock theme (indicators)
Following changes are made by me:
- .css files for GTK3 and Gnome-Shell are edited. I changed all orange and purple tinted colors
- GTK2 images and Gnome-Shell graphics which were orange tinted are changed
- For the icon pack I just recolored the folder icons in 'places' and 'status'
- The dock got recolored app running indicators, which are changed by script, not by file
I tried to make the installation as easy as possible. Therefore I created an installation script called install.sh.
The installer will do a backup if something needs to be overwritten (only Ubuntu 18.10+). It will guide you through everything and allows you to choose what you want to install.
Installation with script:
- Run the installer with
./install.sh-- for replacing
/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/Yarufor better compatiblity, run this script as root
- Follow the installer
Removal with script:
- Rund the uninstaller with
./uninstall.sh-- if you installed the shell theme to
/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/Yaru, run this script as root
- Follow the script
- Copy your desired theme into your desired theme directory (example
- Copy you desired icon pack into your desired theme directory (example
- For better compatiblity you can optionally copy the files from a theme's gnome-shell directory to
/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/Yaruand overwrite everything AFTER you backed up the files
- Enable your themes with gsettings commands or with gnome-tweak-tool
- To change the dock indicator color (Ubuntu's Dash-To-Dock only), find the hex code for your desired color in the list below and enter following two commands (replace HEXCODE with your color code including #):
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock custom-theme-running-dots-color 'HEXCODE' 2> /dev/null
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock custom-theme-running-dots-border-color 'HEXCODE' 2> /dev/null
(or do it with the script, it'll do it for you...)
Have fun with it!
For any suggestions send me a message here or on Reddit /u/jannomag
Hex-Color codes of all base colors
First color is the Ubuntu-Orange, second the Ubuntu-Purple
All other colors in the themes are generated while compiling the css from Yaru's source.
