FlatStudio
GTK3 Themes
Description:

Flat, simple and clean :)

- Inside the theme folder there is a readme.txt file with some simple instructions (styles for nautilus, change selection color, metacity-buttons)

If you are using Firefox, I recommend for this theme to install the extension FXChrome. It is not completely flat but almost ;)
https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/fxchrome/?src=api

requires:
- GNOME 3.4.x or GNOME 3.6.x (does not work on other versions of gnome)
- GTK3 theme uses unico-engine
- GTK2 theme uses gtk2-engines-murrine

There are four themes:
FlatStudio: based on the color of my other theme MediterraneanNight

FlatStudioLight: found a mockup that I really liked and in which I based for FlatStudioLight, the mockup is of Tobias Bernard\'s (minimal GTK theme mockup), found in
http://tobiasbernard.com/floss/minimal-gtk-theme/

FlastudioGray: soft gray frame

FlatStudioDark: flat dark theme :)

Shell theme:

Contrail by ~theRealPadster,
inspired by the same mokup that FlatStudioLight

Excellent theme, a pity that it does not show state change in Toggle Buttons. I have a program where a selection is made with such buttons, but there's no way to know which has been clicked.

I had the problem that eg. buttons and notebook tabs which contained several elements in a gtkbox/gtkgrid, did not correctly let through the background color, and received the default bg (dark gray). After studying how all this works, I found that no background color was defined for those elements, while they are supposed to be transparent.

I defined a new class for GtkGrid, with transparent bg, and behold, it works! Elements look a lot nicer... I'd publish the changes, but don't really know where. Suggestions?

How would I go about enabling lockscreen backgrounds on Cinnamon. I run Arch with Cinnamon on top and this theme just blacks out my background on the lockscreen. Adwaita-Grey allows me to use my wallpaper but I prefer this theme.

Your theme should be default in gnome! i like the flat design :)
I've found some issues on ubuntu-gnome 14.10 / gnome-shell 3.12
that forced me to change it for now...
a new release of the theme is already planned?

Hello, I've installed the theme and I really enjoy the look of it, however the window pane and buttons does not seem to work. It defaults to one of the stock Gnome 3 themes. Any help? Thank you in advance!

I use FlatStudioGray theme and noticed, that checked disabled radio buttons are not visible.

I've fixed this on my system with the following patch (expire in a month)

Please, consider changing this bit in next release.

Thanks for a great theme and good luck!

First of all, I would like to say that I love this theme. It's probably my favorite theme out there, being extremely minimalistic, clean while still looking beautiful.

Since you stated in another post that you have a problem with your eye, I hope that you'll get well soon, since I would like to see this theme posted to GNOME 3.8.

Regards

I really like the default FlatStudio theme, but there's a little problem; theres little contrast between the greys as seen here: http://i.imgur.com/9tySBEi.png

The other variations don't have this problem
I'm on Ubuntu 3.10
