Sorry for the late reply! I was under the impression that replaces() is a generally broken feature, maybe it just doesn't work well on AUR (actually that might only have been a real problem for AUR3; lately I've actually seen it work correctly). Anyway the transition to git seems to have been worked out for most of the pantheon packages (still a lot of os-patch-yadayada in launchpad, but most of those we probably don't want for Archlinux).

alucryd commented on 2017-05-16 22:42 (UTC)

Replaces is useful for my custom repo. Provides and conflicts are already correct because the old package provided and conflicted with the non-bzr version, this one will therefor conflict by transitivity.

quequotion commented on 2017-05-15 16:48 (UTC)

replaces=() isn't very useful. To ease the transition from -bzr better to put the old package in conflicts=() and provides(), ie: provides=(gtk-theme-elementary{,-bzr} plank-theme-pantheon{,-bzr}) conflicts=(gtk-theme-elementary{,-bzr} plank-theme-pantheon{,-bzr}) replaces=('gtk-theme-elementary-bzr' 'plank-theme-pantheon-bzr')

Installing the supported way, which is makepkg, has always installed both packages without asking. If you're using a helper, you're on your own.

rcct commented on 2016-03-07 23:00 (UTC)

As of late when updating the package, instead of asking like before, plank-theme-pantheon-bzr is installed too by default. Is there a way to avoid this?

Right now version 542 is available and this time I went to the tmp folder in order to see what was going on there. As far as I understand it the problem is in the following line of the PKGBUILD, cp -dr --no-preserve='ownership' gtk-2.0 gtk-3.0 metacity-1 index.theme "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/themes/elementary/ According to the folder listing in the build (src) folder there is no (longer?) metacity-1 folder created and thus can not be copied either. This seems to happen from version 536 (see previous message) onward. I don't know what the "consequences" of this removal may be in order to be able to accurately use this theme. It seems a major "issue" thus I will flag the package as out-of-date for now until the PKBUILD is fixed.

rcct commented on 2015-10-13 22:15 (UTC)

When updating to 536 I get the following error and, subsequently, the package is not updated: ==> Starting pkgver()... ==> Entering fakeroot environment... ==> Starting package_gtk-theme-elementary-bzr()... cp: cannot stat 'metacity-1': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_gtk-theme-elementary-bzr(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build gtk-theme-elementary-bzr.

Just updated to 448-1 and was asked during the process if I only wanted to install the gtk-theme-elementary-bzr package which is what I use. I presume that, just as you state, it would update the plank-theme-pantheon-bzr package too if I had it installed and as I do not it asks me if I want to just stick to what I do have. Therefore, as far as I understand it, all is working as it should. Thanks for the heads-up.

alucryd commented on 2015-04-17 07:27 (UTC)

It is a split package, so yeah it is safe. Depending on how you build it you may have plank-theme-pantheon-bzr installed at the same time.

rcct commented on 2015-04-17 00:06 (UTC)

Since the new PKGBUILD I am receiving the following notification during the update process for this package, This PKGBUILD describes a split package. Is it safe to ignore it for the package version/name I use (gtk-theme-elementary-bzr) will update as usual?

veeti commented on 2015-04-15 15:55 (UTC)

Sure thing! Thanks for all the work on packaging Pantheon. Disowned.

alucryd commented on 2015-04-15 14:08 (UTC)

Hey, would you mind if I took over this package? I'm already maintaining almost everything related to Pantheon, and egtk now ships the Pantheon theme for Plank as well, so I made a split PKGBUILD for that. You can find it here:

alucryd commented on 2015-04-15 14:01 (UTC)

This has been merged in trunk. Merging into gtk-theme-elementary-bzr.

orschiro commented on 2014-03-06 07:26 (UTC)

@veeti I am no longer using Pantheon and cannot test it. Thus leave out the fix if you cannot reproduce it.

veeti commented on 2014-03-04 12:29 (UTC)

Added conflict. Is the Pantheon thing still an issue? Can't reproduce.

orschiro commented on 2014-02-14 07:21 (UTC)

Currently there is a bug in the theme which displays the location path icons of Pantheon Files in a hardly visible white colour. This can be fixed by adding the following line to "gtk-widgets.css" or "granite-widgets.css" GtkToolItem { color: @text_color; } Can you please patch the GTK theme until the issue is fixed upstream?

orschiro commented on 2014-02-14 06:28 (UTC)

Please add conflicts=('gtk-theme-elementary')

commented on 2013-11-15 23:51 (UTC)

Please change version in PKGBUILD to 135.

alucryd commented on 2013-09-01 20:55 (UTC)

Merged, thx.

fresh24 commented on 2013-09-01 19:30 (UTC)


alucryd commented on 2013-08-29 13:16 (UTC)

fresh24: Could you reupload this as gtk-theme-elementary-bzr for consistency? I'll merge the packages afterwards.

fresh24 commented on 2013-01-28 19:14 (UTC)

gtk 3.6 is not supported at the moment, because the elementary team is targeting the GTK version that get shipped with Luna (same as Ubuntu Precise).

commented on 2013-01-22 18:00 (UTC)

the bzr 1000 have bad/broken gtk3 theme, you not know if exist another 3.6 branch or any patch for it??

Ner0 commented on 2012-05-22 09:49 (UTC)

The first patch is included in the latest bzr revision (494).

commented on 2012-05-21 22:48 (UTC)

If this is the elementary-gtk-theme but based on bzr releases? how you see there have 2 patch...I ask why this (if this is the same package that stable but using bzr) have the patch I pobably can underestand the 002-add-openbox-theme.patch are not included but not the missing of the first

francoism commented on 2012-02-01 11:28 (UTC)

Am I the only one who likes to see smooth borders? I don't see them, also Nautilus looks weird.

fresh24 commented on 2011-05-27 18:06 (UTC)

Unico dependency added.

pulp commented on 2011-05-11 22:32 (UTC)

It appears to depend on as of rev. 254

fresh24 commented on 2011-03-06 16:45 (UTC)

The Aurora engine dependency has now been dropped.

fresh24 commented on 2010-10-19 16:15 (UTC)

The Equinox engine dependency has now been dropped.

fresh24 commented on 2010-10-12 20:03 (UTC)

done. Thanks for your comments ;)

swiftscythe commented on 2010-10-12 19:57 (UTC)

Please, add bzr to makedepends. Thanks :D

fresh24 commented on 2010-10-10 14:42 (UTC)

PKGBUILD updated.

commented on 2010-10-07 14:53 (UTC)

Please change the folder name in /usr/share/themes/ from egtk to elementary, or Gnome Appearance cannot find the gtk or metaciy theme.
