Is anyone else having problems finding the theme after being redirected to DevianArt. Why not just upload it here?

The On/Off toggles are invisible for me. I am using Gnome 3.8 from Arch Linux gnome-unstable repository. Any idea how to fix that?

Nice theme! And the tutorial to change font size is nice. I changed font size to 10pts and its even better! =)

This is exactly the shell theme I've been looking for. It goes great with both dark and light themes and its plain and simple. Keep up the good work!

Also, I hope you dont mind (and if you do let me know), but I've packaged your theme for Arch linux users in the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=58942

Arch linux users can install this (assuming usage of yaourt) by running "yaourt -S gnome-shell-theme-default-mod"

beautiful theme, congratulations! The only flaw, in my opinion, is the size of fonts on the popup panel. No?

I just made an account so I could say how amazing this theme is. It's what the default theme should have been like!

I saw what theme extension not comparability with gs 3.4. I'm use extension from repository on my Ubuntu 11.10. I hope extension on site will works soon.
Now, you can replace original theme to this (make backup) in /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme, but I'm not recommend do that.
