@ ScionicSpectre : very good! I trust you won't mind that I posted an entry on deviantArt http://fav.me/d8omyzq as I find the theme perfectly useable and useful. Thanks for the effort.

@Phobi4n, you trusted correctly. I don't mind at all since you not only attributed me but linked back here. I'll likely upload it to GNOME-look.org and my own deviantART once I get around to the GTK 3 side of things.

Or we could look at merging it into the proper git repo for 5.4?

I'm not opposed to the idea, but I'd say it's too rough in its current state and in terms of my resources it's more of a weekend project sort of thing. Also, there's the slight issue of a color scheme change utterly breaking the consistency. I'd be willing to do an additional theme for Breeze Dark, but since the API OxygenGTK uses in GTK 2 is still available, I wonder if that wouldn't be the better approach.

Even still, if the community finds the quality acceptable, I'm not opposed to contributing upstream and polishing it occasionally.

I'm waiting for an official GTK version of the Breeze theme too! I use it now as my widget style, and it looks a bit out of place when GTK applications (like Firefox) still use oxygen-GTK for the menus / scrollbars / etc.

That's how every developer and every project starts.

I don't want to force you into something you're uncomfortable with, but I strongly recommend it; you'll get hundreds times more users than you will on a hidden folder on deviant art.

We've just tagged 5.3, which means we have ~3 months to get this into the next Plasma release.

Could you make a list of what problems there are and what remains? Then I can maybe help out?

Yeah, I'm starting to warm up to the idea- I suppose it would be better than just using Orion indefinitely. The most glaring issues right now are the tool-buttons missing a pixel on the right edge and the scrollbar being slightly 'squished' inside of the trough. I probably just need to go back and check my math in those areas. Also, getting the tool-tips looking nice shouldn't take long.

I guess the biggest downside is that there's no way to make a traditional GTK 2 theme that would allow for the more prominent features of Breeze, such as grabbing empty space anywhere (not just the menu and tool bars) or having rounded menus. I'm sure it's not impossible, but GTK 2 is kind of dead when it comes to theme engines. QtCurve and OxygenGTK are the only themes that went that far.

Most of the important applications that still use GTK 2 are working on GTK 3 ports, however, so I think it's probably okay to let the GTK 2 theme have those deficiencies if there's no feasible alternative.

So yeah, long story short, I'll give it another look this week and upload it to my github so we can whip it into shape and start a GTK 3 version as well.

I added this as a todo for the plasma board so we devs don't forget about it
https://todo.kde.org/?controller=board& ... ject_id=44
If you are able to spare some time to fix it up please do get in touch on the plasma-devel mailing list or #plasma IRC channel on freenode

@ScionicSpectre Very good! I think you should definitely put it on GitHub.

Check here for updates on my progress (and if you want to help out). Even just reporting bugs you see in various applications would be a great help.

This looks really good. :)
I hope this will get integrated in Plasma 5.4.

+1 to that. Although it should probably be renamed from Breezy to Breeze in that case, for consistency.

I'm working on a gtk-3 breeze theme (https://github.com/dirruk1/gnome-breeze, not nearly done yet) but kwin draws these wide borders around gtk3 applications, does anyone know how to get rid of these?

Wow very cool progress ScionicSpectre! dirruk1 that looks great too! Maybe you can work together with ScionicSpectre on the GTK3 theme.

I'm down for including these in the Breeze KDE repo when you think they're ready so they can get wider testing in perhaps the 5.4 beta release. :-)
