Well I use my laptop monitor mostly so it would be great to have that very edge black or at least a dark colour. The white line is quite stark between the black bezel of the laptop and any dark colour on the display. I would really appreciate if you could tell me which line in which file would need to be changed. Thanks :)

Problem fixed! I found the right line in the css file and changed the colour to black and reduced the alpha. Looks good :)

....kind of a good theme"S", but the changelog
goes to be somehow a bit longer than usual,
also as we all know Gimp, FF etc. doesn't look
good. May be you can code batter, may be not.

I have mixed Zukitwo and Zukitwo Dark into Zukitwo Dark Menu - http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zukitwo+Dark+Menu?content=146477. I have also changed the dark background shade very slightly to go with the Shiki-Colors Xfwm theme. Can you absorb it into the Zukitwo pack? Also, can you provide an Xfwm theme for Zukitwo and Zukitwo Dark?

i changed the fonts even with 8 and trebuecht ms (even tahoma 8) but buttons are the same.

i think its nothing to do with the fonts at least in my case.

Hello,

This is an issue with fonts. The larger fonts you use the larger the spacing gets. Unfortunately I haven't found a solution to this yet.

Spinners look ugly in GTK3. See screenshot (from transmission using gtk3):

Can some apps use a dark theme? such as the default theme adwaita do, the totem and EOG are using darking theme while other apps using light theme.

Dark menu is not a good idea for Zukitwo-Dark...

Grey text on grey background is not fun.
I'm tired of manually fixing text color to black on almost all recent themes - Adwaita, Elementary, Ambiance - all suffer from this disease. Where it all came from?
Please consider switching text color to pure black (#000000 instead of #3c3c3c). Staring at computer screen is already tiresome for eyes, no need to make it worse with bad contrast.

Putting the text color to black causes something that makes it look worse for me. I can't really explain it actually. Try adjusting your monitor's contrast/brightness. Make sure you can see each steps in this image: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_TAT-cjPugxo/TOmkdbVtRZI/AAAAAAAAAF8/r7LVM7BDT8E/s1600/grayscale.jpg

Brightness/contrast settings on my monitor are absolutely fine, and I can see all the steps clearly.
My point, is that #000000 is more readable than #3c3c3c, and that's kinda obvious IMO. I don't understand, what can possibly go wrong with that, for me it's a clear improvement.

I'm just going to say what DanRabbit, the author of elementary gtk said:
"no, the black is too sharp of a contrast and it hurts your eyes after a while. Better to go with an almost-black."

I agree with him. It actually does that to me after trying. But this is very individual I guess. :)

I suggest making a variation (like Zukitwo-Contrast) with more contrast to allow user decide.

Hi, congratulations on your work. Outstanding themes.

I tried today to install the themes on a fresh ubuntu 11.10 and they does not appear in the theme list in gnome-tweak-tool.

Other themes are listed.

Any idea on how to find the bug ?

Report

Sounds like you've installed the themes in the wrong folder and/or didn't close and re-open gnome-tweak-tool after you installed the themes.

Folder structure:
~/.themes/Zukitwo
~/.themes/Zukitwo-Dark
etc.

or

/usr/share/themes/Zukitwo
/usr/share/themes/Zukitwo-Dark
etc.

I put the themes folders in /usr/share/themes.

As i said, other installed themes are listed.

Thank you for being so responsive. One thing is a bit out of place though with dark menus. It's the state entries you've made recently. For example the sound indicator (using unity) has buttons which get white when you hover over them.

Thank you again for the great work! Your theme is by far my favorite.

Unity is quite a mess right now. Barely any documentation about how to theme it. But if you could provide a screenshot maybe I could take a look at it. (But I can't test my possible fixes.) :P

I believe this is not only a Unity problem. Here is what I did:

added

.menu *:hover {
background-color: shade (@menubar_color, 1.08);

to gtk-widgets.css

and changed

text[NORMAL] = @selected_fg_color (it was fg_color)

in the "murrine-menuitem-text-is-fg-color-workaround" section of the gtkrc file.

With these changes everything seems to be ok so far. :)

Your fixes breaks a lot of other things. And maybe these dark menus weren't such a good idea anyways, because of so many application with bad gtk integration seems to break.
