Orta theme for Ubuntu Unity 11.10 by rebek94 Orta theme for Ubuntu Unity 11.10 by rebek94
You can install this version of the theme Orta on Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity.
This theme is an adaptation of the original ([link]), using also the theme Orion ([link]).

MANUAL INSTALLATION:
Extract all the files from the archive in the folder ~/.themes/Orta
Then, with gnome-tweak-tool, select Orta in GTK+ theme and Window theme.


PPA INSTALLATION:
You can also install it using the OMG! Ubuntu! PPA!. Open a terminal and type:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kokoto-java/omgubuntu-stuff
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install orta-gtk-theme


INFO:
You can also install orta-settings-manager ([link]), but only certain information will take effect.

If you have problem with this theme and Xubuntu, you can try this: [link]

Hi!
I've just installed xubuntu precise and I wanted a nice theme, and orta is my favourite one but i didn't know it doesn't support gtk-3.0 (i usually am a kde user), so i was quite disappointed to see my gtk3 programs look terrible. Then you made my day with this "old" post :D.
But there are some bugs in your theme, some buttons shifting when the mouse hovers them, the background of file roller quite unreadable, and maybe other i haven't noticed yet.
Well I've downloaded this theme [link] and used its gtk-3.0 folder in yours, and it solved all those troubles. I think you could upload this fix in your ppa, don't you?

Ps: sorry if I wrote in a bad english, i haven't been writing in english for ages..

Hi ~loos-e-nd
Thanks for trying this theme and leaving your feedback.
This theme has been designed for Ubuntu, and not for Xubuntu.
Which version of the OS are you using? I made an updated version for Ubuntu 12.04 that you can find here: [link]
Thanks again for your advice, I added the link to this comment in the description :)

Complimenti, meraviglioso tema. Ho un po' di problemi con l'installazione via repository. Dice che il pacchetto orta-gtk-theme inesistente. Sto provando manualmente.

On Xubuntu 12.04 it looks like this [link].
On gedit (GTK-3) it almost like "windows98 style" OMG XD

This is for Ubuntu Unity, not for XDE.
However for Ubuntu 12.04 there is another version (this is for 11.10).

Hi, thanks for making this theme, but unfortunately I think some gtk3 update in Ubuntu Precise has broken it. In programs like Empathy and Orta the buddy list is pretty much unreadable, along with the menus. This issue exists for other programs as well.

I don't think you're alone though as I've seen other themes with exact issues. I don't know if there's anything to be done about it, but hopefully.

Already with the PPA and starting work on the Settings manager? This is too good. Man you're making fantastic progress here rebek94. The gradients are just perfect too. Its not as if there arent other beautiful themes to be had. I just can't bring myself to use any but yours now. White has traditionally been a color to stray from because its hard to give it any real depth but you're absolutely nailing that impossibly small sweet spot with your shading and gradients. My applause and thanks for all the hard work. Grinding through text and pounding numbers in is a drag i know..... I hope you can feel satisfied after seeing SkysOfAzel give his approval and praise. This is something you should be proud of man.

Hi Dupwnt,
Yes, I am very happy to SkysOfAzel approval.
I am extremely busy recently and I do not know when I will have the opportunity to continue working on it.
Thank you very much for your sustenance and praise.
Best regards.

I'm find the problem, Synaptik don't read the ppa with this theme. Maybe it's problem for my PC only. (Ubuntu 11.10). Sorry for my bad English.

I have the same problem describe by lependin.
The synaptic does not show ANY program listed, and when I try to search it crashes. Also the program EasyTag doesn't show nothing. It's a "bug" in certain systems.
Rebek94, have you some ideia of what may be going on?

Thanks.

Hi lependin, Hi Migas72
You can simply delete the folder gtk-2.0/Apps/Synaptic in the theme folder!

You're a champ for being so gracious about someone keeping your work alive. Lots of people would be bent and jealous about it. People with kick ass attitudes like yours are the backbone of open source. Making something worth selling and giving it away freely is a sign of strong character in my book. Good man!

Why would i be jealous, i am actually relieved and grateful that someone liked Orta enough to port it. I've received ALLOT of requests for a gtk3 port over the last year and to tell you the truth, i was feeling guilty for not been able to support the theme's fans. So, as you can see i actually owe rebek thanks for doing what was my responsibility to do.

I think the top panel in Unity should be transparent to match with the launcher.

CCSM -> Ubuntu Unity Plugin -> Experimental -> lower "panel opacity" :)
But beware, if you are not using unity 5.x you won't have the "Panel opacity toggles" :P

........... You have made my day. Orta is by FAR my favorite gtk2 theme and seeing your progress on this project is one kick ass treat indeed. Its about time someone put in the hours to rebuild this masterpiece. I cant tell you how many goddamn "ambiance" renditions ive had to wade through as i search for new themes but i can tell you, "ambiance" themes sucked in the first place so there was little point to the 10000 spin off variants we see on every desktop. You've done a service for mankind with this little ditty here. I hope the progress on the theme comes without too many headaches. Keep up the good work. You're pimp hand is mighty.

Awesome job so far, dude! (You might wanna check OMG! Ubuntu!, cuz there will be an article about your theme).
There are a few issues however:
The theme lacks Chrome/ium integration.
The GTK 3 menus are completely different from what the Orta GTK 2 menus are.
And there is of course the lack of being as customizable as the Orta GTK 2 version (selecting Dark or light panel and dark or light menus).
However it's a start, and it's a damn good one! :P
