* Revision of the GTK2 theme (now it's slick and more integrated with the overall look&feel)

Thanks a lot for this theme, its amazing, I like it a lot.

I'm trying to set up this on Mint Linux, running Cinnamon DE.
I've got an issue with the windows border. It does not display the window border correctly when the windows have a small width.
If anyone knows how to fix this, please help me.
This is how it looks like :

A New Start doesn't display when selected. (https://plus.google.com/photos/109138063320719069820/albums/5837416364476985105)

[So far I've done...]
Searched for people having similar issues and read all the posts here.
Tried searching thru the posts on deviantart although they're forum board is really irritating and I can't seem to view all the newer pages but I'll try there again later.

I know you mentioned you were going to put out a sweeping release for later versions of Gnome3 skipping 3.4 altogether. I see you updated it in December.

[Questions]
Did you update it to 3.6? Am I doomed for failure? The readme just says Gtk3
I'm on quantal and I put an error log up here: http://guszorro.kodingen.com/log.text you can see some warnings but nothing serious, is there any other information I could provide that would be helpful?

I'm really liking this theme (looks fantastic, like the color schemes). However, there's one major problem I'm having, and that's with font color. When I switch the GTK+ theme to ANewStart, the font becomes white on white in most things (quite unreadable). I'm on Gnome 3.4 in OpenSuse. I'm not sure if I'm simply missing something or what. If I am, could you point me in the right direction?

Something else (more of an annoyance than anything) is the grouping of the icons in the applications menu is really scrunched together. I personally would like to see them a little more spread out. Other than that, it's looking good! Keep up the good work!

Problem is that this theme isn't updated for 3.4 yet. I will directly to 3.6 version, so stay tuned with next gnome release since I will release the update in a week or two! :)

Hi,

I just wanted to say your theme is awesome. I've just got one problem: I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity and the theme has made the text (username, date) and icons on the top panel weird - the text is dark gray when it should be white and the icons have a weird kind of shadow or outline. I've seen the same thing when I've used other themes (such as Radiance which is included in the default install).I've tried to fix it by going into the theme file and changing HTML colour codes in some of the scripts but it doesn't seem to have worked yet and I'm scared of borking it. Any way to change the colours? Thanks in advance :)

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit and applied this theme but the sources are not visible because of their color. It worked perfectly in Ubuntu 11.10 :( Can something be done?
Thank you!

Unfortunately, I have to update it for ubuntu 12.04, so wait a bit until I do this! In the meanwhile, these next two days I'll upload the porting of GrayRevenge for GNOME 3.4/Ubuntu 12.04. If you want, give it a try! :)

I'm really looking forward to an update of A New Start for GNOME 3.4. A New Start was by far my most-used GTK3 theme until I updated to Ubuntu 12.04 a few days ago.

I really love you theme, I use it on my two computers, one running Ubuntu 11.10 and one has Ubuntu 10.10. I look at your screenshot you posted here and really need the icon set in that pics. I already installed the AwOken icon set but not include this icon color. Plz show me how I got it :D. Thanks so much aleciv! :D

It's in the description: you need to colorize the icons with 99/15/00 color combination. If you don't know how to do it, simply read the installation and instructions file that comes with awoken icon set.

Screenshots are very impressive indeed.
So I immediately downloaded and installed it according to the instructions in README.pdf.
But, instead of the elegant title bar in the screenshots above, I get a disappointing old-looking title bar like this: http://i.minus.com/i8jkgIxRRAxFx.png
I wonder what I'm missing here...
Thanks a lot, and kind regards...

I have discovered what's missing: you need to change the position of window titlebar buttons from left to right.
I wish this elegant theme could incorporate both versions...

Sorry for the late reply but I had some problems :(

Anyhow, I'm glad you solved, but I didn't understand well since your image is no more in minus servers I think :(

I'm glad to hear that your problems are over.
The screenshot which I later removed simply showed a very old (fallback) window theme.
However, I discovered later that it was because I have chosen to display window buttons on the top-left corner.
So it might be a good idea to warn (potential) users that this theme will only work with buttons on the right.
Perhaps you might also consider to support both options in this elegant theme of yours.
Thanks a lot.

I completely agree with you, but the problem itself is that I never experienced such an issue. On my machine was not needed to do so, the problem never revealed.
So I'm guessing if your problem is actually different (but anyhow you solved it changing titlebar buttons), or it is what you explained before but my default configuration overcame it for reasons that I ignore.
So, if it's the former case, probably the best thing is doing nothing (since your problem is not so common); if it's the latter case, I should really do what you suggested me since it's my solution that is not so common!
I actually don't know what to do :)

This is interesting. I thought you have designed this theme solely for the window layout with titlebar buttons on the right. But when I tried it again now, it worked! Perhaps it was just one of those weird one-off things.

Nevertheless, we can perhaps make some use of this experience.

I thought your nice window visual on the left would swap places with the buttons on the right when the user chooses the buttons to be displayed on the left, but it also remains there, and as a result this version doesn't look the same as the default version. It then becomes more difficult to see the buttons, and that nice visual is somewhat obscured by the buttons at the foreground.

I understand that it might be a little complicated to mirror that visual on the right when left titlebar button layout is selected, but I'm making this suggestion so that perhaps something good may come out of all this fuss I have caused ;-)

Kind regards...

Actually it's a good point, and your suggestion is basically the smartest idea to solve this problem. But, even though this shouldn't be difficult from a pure image approach (I have only to mirror images from the left to the right), I actually don't know how to tell to the window manager when using one layout rather than the other one. I'm sorry, but I think that this is the best I can achieve :(
