Boomerang - GTK3

'Boomerang' (Version 5.0) is a Linux desktop theme available for GNOME desktop environment. It is compatible with the latest GTK 3.4 and supports Gnome Classic Fallback, Gnome Shell, Unity and XFCE. It is included with two different flavours.

It is recommended for you to use this GTK theme with the Faience Azur icon theme.

This theme is licensed under GNU General Public License version 3.

Theme Requirements

You will NEED the following packages to use this theme:

- Unico GTK3 engine
- Murrine GTK2 engine 0.98.1.1 or later
- Pixbuf GTK2 engine or the gtk(2)-engines package

Unico GTK3, Murrine and Pixbuf GTK2 engine installation instructions

The Unico GTK3 and Murrine GTK2 engine IS INSTALLED BY DEFAULT IN UBUNTU. So Ubuntu users JUST NEED TO INSTALL the Pixbuf GTK2 engine. To install it, open terminal and paste this command:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

Unico GTK3 engine:

You can grab the Unico GTK3 engine package from here:
[link]

Murrine and Pixbuf GTK2 engine:

ArchLinux:

pacman -S gtk-engine-murrine gtk-engines

Debian-based/Mint/Ubuntu-based distros:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf

Fedora/RedHat distros:

yum install gtk-murrine-engine gtk2-engines

Other distro:

Search for the engines in your distribution's repository or install the engines from source.

Theme Installation

Extract the Boomerang/Boomerang-Deux.tar.gz files to the themes directory:

"~/.themes/" or "/usr/share/themes"

Use gnome-tweak-tool a.k.a Advanced Settings to select the GTK and metacity themes.

Please read the included INSTALL file for more information.

Known Issue(s)

'Shade' and 'Stick' functionality for xfwm4 are available with this theme but the buttons are invisible. Click on the specific places on the window title to use it. You may need to use your intuition and psychic ability to spot those invisible buttons. Lulz!

Unfortunately I have to use the default theme. Do you probably know how long it will take to update your theme? I think a big community is waiting for the new release.

The Boomerang Deux window theme isn't working for me. The window theme just stays on whichever theme I previously had. Boomerang window theme works fine though.

Good job! The Window theme here goes great with the Ice Cream GTK theme even though those are not it's intentions, the mix is very very well.

Overall, I love it.

I tried installing this but I can only get the GTK3 theme to stick. The window decoration theme doesn't work and Gnome 3 uses the fallback window decoration. Any idea thoughts on how to fix this?

Buetiful theme b/w!!

Ok, let me explain.. this 'Boomerang' theme is developed & maintained by me. It is a 'skin' or 'visual style' for GNOME desktop environment (which can be mostly found in Linux-based operating systems). Happy studying!

Okay... I've been studying this and I have a few questions...
:iconbluebulletplz: All I have is Windows... How do I get somethin that would be compatible with this?
:iconbluebulletplz: Where can I get this software? I read it can be bought on a disc, but can I upload it via the internet in any way?
:iconbluebulletplz: Once I find out all of this... how can I upload your amazing style? :P

Thank you :3

:bulletred: Sorry, this stuff is only compatible with Linux-based operating systems such as Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, etc.. NOT for Window$ or others :p

:bulletred: You can download those Linux from their own websites for FREE (yes, seriously, it's free). I would recommend Linux newcomers to use Ubuntu or Mint.

:bulletred: Once you get used to Linux, you'll never, ever turn back to Window$! Take your time and it will be worth it. :)

Good Luck! :3

I'm using it now. Only have a problem, I'm using XFCE, so the GTK theme is running perfect, but my Window Manager (xfwm4) is not using the theme. Tryed to execute Gnome's Window manager (gnome-wm --replace) and GTK window manager (gtk-window-manager --replace) but none of them are using the theme even after using gnome-tweak-tool to be sure the theme is selected for application an windows. Do you know if there is something wrong on my config? Thanks ^^

PS: Done :+fav: to have it allways available to redownload if it's needed ^^

Ok, I knew it, but I want to try using gtk/gnome window manager on XFCE to have it use the theme. If you know how to do it, tell me. If not, I will search for info on the net and make tryings to get it working. Thanks anyway ^^
