Themes
« on: 29. April 2016, 11:50:39 »
I really like the Deepin DE implementation but the lack of customization options puts me off installing it. Icons are not an issue because there is plenty of choice but window borders are boring with no additional options. Is there any way to add new window border themes?

I kow that at least vertex-maia and adwaita are working ;) and I am already proud of that since even the original Deepin deepin gtk-theme is broken with gtk3.20 ;D
What helps (with most applications at least) with some themes is to switch to metacity-mode with <Super>+<Tab>. Like that for example vertex-maia-square decorations work - except for deepin-terminal and some other ... ...  :P I know, this is a bit disappointing at the moment ::) ;)

Thare are some cool themes in the repository, as an example: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cloak-gtk2-gtk3-theme/

-or- go to a site like GNOME-Look: http://gnome-look.org/index.php

and D/L and install to your heart's content.   ^-^

Thank you for the responses. I've now worked out from this how to install additional themes.

Thanks! Switching metacity-mode fixed most of my problems after update.  8)
