1 OneStepBack

OneStepBack is a Gtk 2, 3 and 4 theme with some colors and embossed widgets inspired by the good old NextStep look. I'm old.

It is developed from scratch, is light and minimal, uses only three shades of grays and one color. That was the challenge.

It has been tested on Arch Linux with Gnome-Shell, Gtk+ from 3.16 to 3.24 and Gtk+ 4.4.1, a good amount of Gtk2 and Gtk3 applications and a very few Gtk4 applications. A lot of widget controls are still missing (but the defaults should be good enough) and it is not tested at all with unity or xfce.

2 Version

Current version is 0.994, released in February 2022.

Thanks. OneStepBack is great. I love the nostalgia. It reminds me of my early days with Windows 3.11 and later in Linux with CDE. Keep up the great work.
