Enlightenment 21 Themes


I have recently installed Enlightenment 21 on Mageia 6 (it's in the repos).

I like Enlightenment as an enviroment, but I do not like its default dark themes; I prefer light-colored themes for the window borders, application backgrounds, and the like. However, I have not been able to find such themes for E21 with numerous web searches. Light-colored themes that worked with E17 do not work with E21.

If anyone can point me to light-colored E21 themes, I would be most appreciative.

I'm using Neptune right now, as it's available for E21, but the titlebar of the application window is still black. If I get the title bar to a lighter color, I would be quite happy with it. There is a color-setting routine in the Enlightenment settings, but I haven't yet had any success with it.

Clash of Royal works, but it is not to my taste.

The others don't work on E21.

I do appreciate the effort.

well you inspired to me to find this person who has a script to make a dark theme lighter
and appears to be usable for other themes?

https://github.com/simotek/Enlightenment-Themes

I am assuming Mageia is RPM based and coder is opensuse which is RPM based so some good karma there?

{small rant} I think the fascination for some with dark themes is they may assume everyone is on a laptop and need to go dark to save battery.
I am on a tower so don't care for dark per se but don't like the high contrast for the visually impaired

Thanks. I'll try it tomorrow if I get a chance (I have some rather heavy stuff to deal with tomorrow). Whenever I do test it, be assured that I'll let you know what happens.

Me, I don't get the fascination with dark themes, but it's definitely a thing.

I am skeptical that theme designers elevate power usage over personal taste. I've always ascribed the fondness for dark themes to a fascination with sci-fi and fantasy, but that's based on no research whatsoever. Personally, I prefer readability.

I'll give Enlightenment a pass on that. It's a fine DE and, if the maintainer wants a dark theme to be part of its identity, that's his (I know it's a he) choice.

And, yes, Mageia is RPM-based, as is SUSE, but Mageia RPMs and SUSE RPMs and RHEL/Fedora RPMs are not necessarily compatible. Hench the term, "RPM Hell."
