How do you use the dark variant?
Miridyan Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2015
How do you make this the window theme as well as the gtk+ theme? Or is that not really an option yet? Will you add it if it isn't?

We have forked this theme to clean it up and fix it for GTK 3.14 over at

I am currently using your window theme from git on Fedora 21 coz I really like it. I have to use it with other gtk+ theme because the min/max/close buttons wouldn't show on Gtk apps (nautilus, gnome-tweak-tool, ...). I have those buttons on the right side as I hate having them otherwise :)

Anyway - I noticed that window titles are not exactly in the horizontal center of the titlebar which bothered me a bit. I made a change to the metacity-theme-3.xml according to some other guy's theme so that the text would center properly. Should you ever run into that problem, here's the git diff:…

Cheers Hi!

renearts Featured By Owner May 27, 2015
This one is just perfect! Only thing I'd maybe like is to have a bit transparency here and there like XGTK. 
tcit Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2015
Thanks you SO MUCH. This is the only one that's nearly perfectly working on Freya.
ganifladi Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015
Hey! I absolutely love your theme. There's just one thing, which really bugs me. I tried to fix it by myself for almost one week now and failed. Here is the problem: the text color of the panel indicator menu items are almost invisible. To make things more clear here is a screenshot: "…". I am on elementary OS freya beta 3. It would be great if you could fix that, or at least give me a hint, where to adjust the parameters for that (which file and which class).

there're some bugs
the left panel of file manager is transparent
the window buttons disappeared
Ubuntu 14.10, Gnome 3.14, gdm
ivanslf Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Just I few bugs I've found:

- Selected text has no highlight in most toolbar entries (GTK+3)
- Scratch's buttons don't get the style
- Non-GTK+3 apps (like Firefox, Skype, LibreOffice) have a glitched window title

Thanks for the great theme!
eyeofdevil Featured By Owner Edited Jan 19, 2015
Same here, I fixed some(with my very little knowledge) of it and and cleaned out some bad coding (that cause GTK warnings and errors).
I put up a repo on GitHub.
Fork and add a pull request if you are able to fix any more problems.

And if I get time, I'll make the src rpms and put it up on a Copr too(if that's any help to you or it will be just me)...

hi, what is the music player that you use? It seems so perfectly clear and minimal :3
kxmylo Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
it's elementary's music player Noise
gonzalezb Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014
the 3.12 or higher works perfect on 3.14.2 on Arch Linux but 3.14 has messed up window buttons on gnome applications and some weird glitches.
jollauser Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014
Been using this theme time for time (using it right now) and it´s awesome! Many thanks for you work on this. :)

Window buttons are bugged
kxmylo Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
that's because you need to move them to the left. use dconf to do so
zonek163 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
I also have this problem, and I use debian testing, the dconf is not worked on this edition, I can not move the button to the left side. so please fix this problem, thanks
kxmylo Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
it is not up to me where the buttons will go. i'm sorry. 
zonek163 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014
Sorry,I don't mean that. Now when the button on the right side,this theme can not work effectively. I mean even the buttons on the right side, this theme can also work effectively, I think you can do it, Thanks!

# This should take care of gnome-shell, some gtk2/3, elementary os luna/freya:
# If it SHOULD say on one of them that the key isn't there or doesn't exist - don't mind that.
# type in terminal - line for line

Awesome work!

A few questions, I'm using Freya btw.

1.- When I fullscreen an app the top bar goes white. Any way to fix this?
2.- I can't get my menu icons in almost all my apps. Any way I can fix this? Screenshot shows the terminal working but not the other app Screenshot
