            GTK-theming: one version for every major or every minor release?
            Asked 2017-Sep-05 at 22:42

            I'm currently working on an GTK-theme, based on Arc-Theme. (You can see my current progress here:

            My knowledge in CSS and GTK-theming is basic, mostly it's just trial and error. I started from another Arc-fork, called OSX-Arc-Plus (no real reason behind it, it was just the theme I've been using when starting to change things). This themed contained subfolders for various minor-releases. As I'm using elementary OS, I used gtk-3.18. Now I've seen that the original Arc theme contains only one gtk-3 folder.

            So thinking of the future with support for more versions, I have no idea, where to go
            a) just releasing one version for every major release (like original Arc-theme)
            b) putting some work in and do one version for every minor Gtk-version (like OSC-Arc-Plus, Paper-theme, Pop-theme)

            So what's the advantage and disadvantage of these possibilities? I would expect a) to be okay, as Arc is used so much around the Linux world, but Paper and Pop are great themes too, and they use b).

            3.20+ stabilized CSS names and 3.22 will be the last major version in the 3 series so you should focus on that. If you really need to support Ubuntu LTS then you would have to make a 3.18 version of course. I would not suggest targeting anything other than those two.

            As for directories in practice it doesn't really matter because people don't install two Gtk3 versions at the same time.

            I don't know if that answers your question or not.

            Install arc-theme

            To build the theme the follwing packages are required. Note: For distributions which don't ship separate development packages, just the GTK 3 package is needed instead of the -dev packages. For the theme to function properly, install the following. Install the theme with the following commands. Clone the git repository with. Other options to pass to are. After the installation is complete the theme can be activated with gnome-tweak-tool or a similar program by selecting Arc, Arc-Darker or Arc-Dark as Window/GTK+ theme and Arc or Arc-Dark as GNOME Shell/Cinnamon theme. If the --disable-transparency option was used, the theme will be installed as Arc-solid, Arc-Darker-solid and Arc-Dark-solid.
            pkg-config or pkgconfig for Fedora
            libgtk-3-dev for Debian based distros or gtk3-devel for RPM based distros
            git to clone the source directory
            GNOME Shell 3.14 - 3.24, GTK 3.14 - 3.22
            The gnome-themes-standard package
            The murrine engine. This has different names depending on the distro. gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux) gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS) gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora) gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE) gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


            If you use Ubuntu with a newer GTK/GNOME version than the one included by default (i.e Ubuntu 14.04 with GTK 3.14 or Ubuntu 15.04 with GTK 3.16, etc.) the prebuilt packages won't work properly and the theme has to be installed manually as described above. This is also true for other distros with a different GTK/GNOME version than the one included by default. If you get artifacts like black or invisible backgrounds under Unity, disable overlay scrollbars with.
