Oomox - GUI for generating themes (Cinnamon, GTK2, GTK3 and Metacity)

Post by smurphos » Sat Aug 19, 2017 2:33 am

Hi,

Just wanted to share this wonderful GTK theming app I recently discovered. Tested on Mint 18.2 Cinnamon edition and works really well. Learning curve is minimal, it comes with loads of preset examples which you can copy as your own template to tweak as you will.

Hi, just a little bump.

Oomox app (with a little input from me :wink: *) now has an option to export customised Cinnamon themes as well as GTK2, GTK3.18, GTK3.20 and Metacity themes,

You'll need Oomox version 1.60+ or above. It has a dependency on sasscand libsass0version 3.4+ which can't be met from the Mint 18 / xenial repos. Shouldn't be a problem in Mint 19.

So to install Oomox on Mint 18.x take the following steps.

Download and install bionic version of libsass0 via deb download appropriate for your architecture from https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libsass0. An older version of libsass0 is in the Mint 18 / xenial repos so you will get a warning about installing a newer version than the repo version.

Download and install bionic version of sassc via deb download appropriate for your architecture from https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/sassc

Download and Install Oomox deb at version 1.60 or later - https://github.com/actionless/oomox/releases. The other dependencies should pull automatically from the Mint 18/xenial repos.

Have fun making themes.

* The Cinnamon template in oomox is a customised version of the template I developed for the Cinnamox themes. It's got a few differences. My 'original version' along with build tools forked from the Oomox developer are here - https://github.com/smurphos/cinnamox-gtk-theme.
No fancy GUI - strictly edit your theme template in a text file and then run a command in the terminal to build the theme.
