I have Archlinux. I have downlaoded your package and extracted it into /usr/share/themes but when trying to change gnome-shell theme using gnome-tweak-tool it is not recognized as a gnome-shell theme. Furthermore, I have browsed into the folders of your themes to selected the desired one and when within gnome-shell for each of your themes it is not recognized as a valid theme.

I really like your theme, for me it's only perfect.
The only thing that disturb me are the white letters
on orange background (on activated or selcted items), in this case black letters would be better for visbility.

thank you for the theme.

Thanks for the comment and the compliment
I tried here at home with black,dark grey, and some more colors
The change of colour of text was something that made me nervous - that's why i kept the white colour

But i'll give it a new try for the next version -or i'll make the shadow a bit darker/bigger

if it is difficult to change the colour a darker
shadow would be a good idea.

The notification popup, which is shown by rhythmbox to inform a user about the current playing track, looks very ugly, because the content of the popup is bigger than the popup.

Hello serge Congratulations you theme, is great. I suggest you change these lines in your theme to work properly with the extension window list, which in classic mode is enabled by default.

near line 2246.

i like the orange version
very nice with the conky theme

one small negative point:

if you use opera the orange fields are browner than in other apps
And in opera some fields are blue ....


for the rest great work - i am already awaiting the next version :)
