Hello

Is there any way to get GTK2.0 apps to change the menu bar color when the window loses focus, like they do in applications like terminal and nautilus?

Really an awesome icon theme. It has become my default choice, after switching to Gnome 3.

I've been missing an icon for Spotify, so I made a simple one:

Maybe somebody finds it useful too :). Thanks for your efforts!

Great theme!

@akshay2000; needs Murrine (GTK2) and Unico (GT3) engines to work properly.

Is this theme in any way compatible with gnome 3.6.2? As it seems like none of the gnome-shell CSS theming is working here...

I really love the look of this theme. My GTK theme, however, doesn't look nice at all in Firefox and LibreOffice. The buttons and URL bar look the way they looked in Windows 98! Am I doing something wrong?

I installed gnome tweak tool, user extensions everything but when I select the zip file and tweak tool says that installed successful and I chose it from the drop down menu , restart, refresh nothing happens ! How did you install it?

Sorry for my delay.
Unzip the folder in /usr/share/themes/ or directly to the user in ~/.themes / share.

Hi!
Great theme but some of my applications have a diffrent style form others. For example Totem and shotwell are in dark style while the rest of the others in white style... is it possibile to fix that problem?

Report

It is not a bug but a new Gnome feature: some applications can adopt a dark theme for a better visibility of their content (totem, eye of gnome, boxes, etc).
I you don't like it, you can remove the gtk-main-dark.css file in the theme folder.

thanks! i will do it! Only another report... some application when are inactive have a strange look i think is due to menu that them use. If you take for example firefox or vlc if them are inactive there is a big diffrent from the color of the border decoration and their menu... probably because menu is not written in gtk?

Report

Those applications are written in GTK2 which, unlike GTK3, does not support different graphical characteristics for widgets contained in unfocused windows. That is why the menubar color does not change where the window is inactive while the metacity border does.

Hello,

Thank you for this beautiful theme. I've just found a minor typo in file gtk-3.0/gtk-apps.css
> border-image: url("./assets/gedit-pane.svg") 32 1 / 32px 1px stretch;

< border-image: url("../assets/gedit-pane.svg") 32 1 / 32px 1px stretch;

Best regards

Great theme, but if any use it with not english localy, then there will not be switches in the user, network manager, bluetooth panels (top right corner).

The reason is 2 missed files: toggle-on-intl.svg and toggle-off-intl.svg

hope author will fix it easily.

But to fix it right now you just neeed to:
cd ~/.themes/Faience/gnome-shell/assets
cp toggle-on-us.svg toggle-on-intl.svg
cp toggle-off-us.svg toggle-off-intl.svg

Looks nice, but the window title bar: http://imgur.com/ZT5Qm
Is this right?

the same thing on ubuntu
for me works to copy metacity theme to /usr/share/themes

sudo mkdir /usr/share/themes/Faience
sudo cp -r ~/.themes/Faience/metacity-1 /usr/share/themes/Faience
sudo cp ~/.themes/Faience/index.theme /usr/share/themes/Faience

Works, indeed.
I'd not thought of making changes outside my home.
Thanks.

I love this theme. It made my Gnome-Shell look nice again.

I have a little annoyance though: The GTK2 and GTK3 themes don't match. Gtk2 theme is light but Gtk3 theme is dark.

TIA!
