Themix GUI designer

Code Style

Graphical application for generating different color variations of Oomox (Numix-based) and Materia (ex-Flat-Plat) themes (GTK2, GTK3, Cinnamon, GNOME, Openbox, Xfwm), Archdroid, Gnome-Color, Numix, Papirus and Suru++ icon themes. Have a hack for HiDPI in gtk2.

Installation

Arch Linux

Install

pikaur -S themix-full-git

AUR helpers are not officially supported by Arch Linux, so you can also install it manually from rolling-release PKGBUILD.

Open the GUI

oomox-gui

Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint

deb-based releases are currently abandoned, this way works for installing older versions of Themix

see also: https://github.com/themix-project/oomox/issues/144

For Debian 9+, Ubuntu 17.04+ or Linux Mint 19+ you can download oomox.deb package here: https://github.com/themix-project/oomox/releases Make sure what universe repository is enabled.

sudo apt install ./oomox_VERSION_17.04+.deb  # or ./oomox_VERSION_18.10+.deb for Ubuntu 18.10+

Or, if you don't want to install third-party binary package you can build it on your own:

# with docker:
sudo systemctl start docker
sudo ./packaging/ubuntu/docker_ubuntu_package.sh  # sudo is not needed if your user is in docker group

# or directly from ubuntu host if you don't like docker:
./packaging/ubuntu/create_ubuntu_package.sh control
# or ./packaging/ubuntu/create_ubuntu_package.sh control_1810

For older releases install the dependencies manually and next follow general installation instructions below.

  • gdk-pixbuf2
  • bc
  • sed
  • find
  • grep

Materia theme:

  • sassc>=3.4
  • glib-compile-schemas from glib2
  • gdk-pixbuf2
  • sed

  • optipng
  • gtk2-engine-murrine
  • resvg or inkscape
  • parallel

Installation

git clone https://github.com/themix-project/oomox.git --recursive
cd oomox
# if you need to generate locales:
make -f po.mk install

Running

./gui.sh

After exporting a theme select the generated theme (oomox-YOUR-THEME-NAME) in your appearance config tool (for example, lxappearance or gnome-tweak-tool).

CLI

If your prefer CLI interface, refer to change_color.sh scripts inside ./plugins/. For xresources and random themes in CLI use palettes from /opt/oomox/scripted_colors/ directory. Using scripted palettes enables you to use bash to write simple generators for dynamic themes (as alternative to plugins in oomox-gui). GUI is not attempting to execute any scripted palettes with bash because downloading such scripted themes from random places could lead to unexpected result so you can use them only with CLI, when you really know what you're doing.

Spotify:

Spotify theme can be also exported from GUI, but if you prefer commandline interface:

./plugins/oomoxify/oomoxify.sh ./colors/gnome-colors/shiki-noble

Also you can normalize font weight with -w argument, see -h for usage.

Spotify theme settings are backed up to ~/.config/oomox/spotify_backup. To undo the changes made by oomoxify, these files can be copied back to their original location /usr/share/spotify/Apps. Spotify can also be reinstalled, which will reset these files as well.

Users running Spotify under Flatpak should set their "Spotify path" in oomox to /var/lib/flatpak/app/com.spotify.Client/current/active/files/extra/share/spotify/Apps in order to apply the theme.

Using with tiling WMs

Create/append to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

/* remove window title from Client-Side Decorations */
.solid-csd headerbar .title {
    font-size: 0;
}

/* hide extra window decorations/double border */
window decoration {
    margin: 0;
    border: none;
    padding: 0;
}

Extra GTK3 CSS hacks

Create/append to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

* {
  text-shadow: none;
}
