If you just want to put a border on the menubar you can try adding

.menubar {
  border-width: 6px;
  background-color: red;
  border-color: black;
  border-style: solid;
}

to the gtk.css file.  This will give a red background and a wide, 
black border to the menubar.  Or apply the same configuration to 
.menuitem to give background color and borders to all menu items in 
the menubar and in the dropdown menu boxes.


I am not quite sure how you could make it shadowed.

Ahhh...  you can get shadowed borders by adding something like

.menubar {
  border-width: 1px;
  box-shadow:  inset 0 0 10px #00;|
border-style: solid;
}

You can experiment with various box-shadow parameters.

Thanks Jim, that tip led to this good-enough-for-now solution:

GtkMenu {
  border-width: 1px;
  border-color: #cc;
  border-style: solid;
  box-shadow: inset -1px -1px 2px #77;
}

GtkMenu is equivalent to .menu as far as I can tell, and both worked for 
me -- can anyone comment? The .menubar style class does not work as these 
are popup menus, not menubars. (Curiously, .popup does not work, which 
would seem to apply according to the GtkStyleContext man page.)


My earlier attempt with

* {

did not work because I wasn't specifying the correct property entries. 
(border-width and border-style are key, I was incorrectly using margin 
before.)


Box shadows seem totally unattainable on my MacOS system if I do not use 
the optional (!?!) 'inset' specifier. I actually do not want an inset 
shadow (I want outset?) but the above specification creates a shadow 
that's subtle enough that you can't easily tell the difference.


Many minor gtk3 style inconsistencies remain between my MacOS and CentOS 7 
boxes, but I think for now I've whacked all that exceed my personal 
hideousity threshold.


Thanks!

borderless MacOS menus (was 'Gtk3 MacOS (OSX) context menu issues')

2015-03-15 Thread Roger Davis


Hi all,

Thanks to Jim Charlton for the nice fix (or workaround) on the context 
menu problem! I've had a MacOS menu problem for some time which may be 
related to this, but as it's a bit off-topic re: the context menu thread 
I've started a new thread here.


My MacOS gtk3 menus have no borders whatsoever, a rather annoying graphics 
glitch. This includes menus built-in to gtk3 widgets (e.g., made from 
gtk_combo_box_text_new()) as well as those made directly by me via 
gtk_menu_new(). The same menus look fine under CentOS.


I'm using a perhaps unusual gtk3 setup under MacOS (although it does seem 
like many folks' MacOS gtk3 installs are unique). I am running the XQuartz 
backend with a very minimal gnome environment. I set XDG_CONFIG_HOME to 
reference my own private settings.ini file with the contents


[Settings]
gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme = false
gtk-theme-name = Adwaita
gtk-icon-theme-name = Adwaita
gtk-font-name = Cantarell 12

This at least solved a recent font problem of mine (see the Feb. 2015 
'gtk3 (GtkTextView) and MacOS' thread), so it seems to be doing something 
useful, and my shadowless menu issue pre-dates use of this file so it's 
not the source of the current problem. However, I'm not sure how to make 
any use of Jim's shadow-removing workaround to *add* shadows to my menus, 
since:


(1) It seems that shadowed menus are supposed to be default bahavior, but 
I'm not getting shadows despite having done nothing to disable them.


(2) My /opt/local/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/gtk.css contains only the 
comment line


/* Adwaita is the default theme of GTK+ 3, this file is not used */

implying there's nothing I can add there that will make the slightest bit 
of difference anyway.


Of course, probably I should just be grateful that I don't suffer from the 
MacOS context menu sensitivity problem and leave well enough alone!


Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Subject: Re: Fwd: Gtk3 MacOS (OSX) context menu issues

To answer part of my own question I am using my own gtk3 theme
rather than the compiled Adwaita theme that comes with Gtk3.  I set the
environment variable XDG_CONFIG_HOME (export
XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/opt/local/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0), edited
/opt/local/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/gtk.css to @import
url(gtk-main.css); and then edit
/opt/local/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/gtk-main.css to customize the
theme. (careful... your theme directory may be elsewhere, depending on
how you installed Gtk3).

To cure the context menu problem, I eliminated the margin on popup
windows by adding

|.window-frame,
.window-frame:backdrop {
  box-shadow: none;
  margin: 0;}

to the end of the gtk.css file.  Without the margin box the selection 
problem seems to go away.


This is not a cure... but perhaps a useful work-around!  The inspiration 
for this idea comes from https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?pid=36005.
