Japan theme


Hello there

To have a complete list of maintained themes I devoted some time to rebuild cute old theme called Japan. Theme was in repository but needed some improvements and fixes for proper compiling under EFL 1.22.6 we use for Bodhi 5.1.

Theme available in repo as bodhi-theme-moksha-japan deb package.
Of course GTK theme and Icon set created in Oomox included in the package.

For best results uncheck "Enable icon theme for Moksha" under Icons tab Settings for nice themed icons in Moksha menus.

Enjoy

Stefan

PS: Thanx Ylee for packaging

It looks very nice, and good job as always. It's a little too stylized for my taste though. I'll stick with the simplicity of MokshaArcGreen.

Yea, I would never tell I like a theme so minimal as arc_green. Also like it
Some people like more attractive color themes. 100 users = 100 tastes

Do not tell me you do not understand. Very simple Japanese.

In other words, you don't have a clue.
Careful!
It might mean "Your butt stinks" or "satisfying boy amusement bone street enormous camp debonair tacit numerous enchanting splendid"...
Do you know Engrish? Well, this could be an opposite case.

Nice theme otherwise!

On the clock its the numbers 1 to 12 in Chinese Characters (also used in Japan).

On the windows, pretty easy to guess it's minimize, maximize, close.

The characters by the art, 家行市西喜快喜新友圆, that's a little more tricky.

That last character isn't used in Japanese I don't think, so I think it's actually Chinese. Japanese only uses like 1800 or something of the thousands of Chinese characters, but mix them with their own phonetic characters too (kana, of which they are none in that text, but perhaps common for art).

Probably just the name of the city and name of the park.

If you said it in Mandarin Chinese, it'd be jia hang shi xi xi kuai xin you yuan

The artwork is very good. I like it. It is a typical Japanese park setting.

The clock indeed has the time in Chinese characters. You can buy watches with the Chinese characters for the time on Taiwan.

The Japanese saying 家行市西喜快喜新友圆 , except for the last character, is in Chinese characters. But, I do not know the full meaning of mind of the Japanese thoughts.

家行市 is the name of a city. Probably the city where the park 圆 is located. The character,行, has two meanings in Chinese. In the context of the photo it is the context of a city as 市 is the word for city. The Character 新 is new in Chinese.

The Japanese, as with the Chinese, like to walk in parks and enjoy meeting old friends and meet new friends in the park.

The rest is my mind is a Japanese saying; like a proverb. To my thoughts it means, "New Western, or Occidental, friendship are readily found in the park.'

All in all, I think the artwork, the Chinese, Japanese, characters, and park setting makes a wonderful theme. Thanks for showing us.

Considering I don't read Japanese I wouldn't want to use a theme like that until I know what it reads!

So Japanese has its own characters for "Minimize, Maximise, Close"? Are these Chinese or Japanese characters?

I also did not know Japanese had its own characters for numerals; I think I remember seeing all sorts of Japanese text with Western numerals in it.
I learned something today.

You can wait for the next theme release. I fixed clock calendar ellipsis in days numbers, also added the window outline for better visibility. Today I want to add border controls layout (min, max, close) on the left for users who switched from the left control desktops.

"Western" numerals? You mean Roman numerals? Yeah I've seen those on clocks too. But I think yer thinking of what we call Arabic numerals. 1 2 3 4 5. That's probably been used for math and stuff all over the world for thousands of years too. Almost everywhere. But they don't use "one" "two" "three" "four" "five", that's only English. Anyway I bet wikipedia knows this stuff better than me if you're interested

edit: waitaminute - "western" actually wasn't wrong at all - at least as seen from Japan.
