Description:

The Mediterranean Night Dark Green theme gives you dark menu bars so that they bland with your title and don't take focus, mid-tones windows and widgets so that your eyes don't burn, but keeps a bit more lightness than some "dark" themes so that you don't feel like you're squinting into a cave.

Based on "Mediterranean Night Darkest" from the "MediterraneanNight Series" (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=156782), this theme fixes any issues that I've found with later versions of Gnome Shell/GTK3 and changes the colour to a more openSUSE-like shade of green.

Thanks to Dvad for his initial GTK3/Gnome Shell fixes.

Includes a matching GTK2 theme. Menu bars coloured to match the Uniq Metacity theme (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Uniq+v1?content=136136).

Tested in Gnome 3.12 on openSUSE. May not work on earlier versions of Gnome.

Do you have gtk2 dependencies installed? Murrine engine and gtk pixbuf engine?

If you use gnome, make sure that you don't have gtk config file in home directory (.gtkrc-2.0 or so)

Murrine and gtk pixbuf are installed.
What dependencies you mean, what files are needed ?

There used to be a dependency on the Unico engine, but that was removed a while ago. It is odd that most GTK2 apps work, except Firefox and LO.

From digging around, there are a few options:
1) Try the original Mediterranean Nights themes and see if they have the same issue for you
2) run "GTK2_RC_FILES=~/.themes/MediterraneanNightDarkGreen/gtk-2.0/gtkrc firefox" to see if Firefox is just ignoring the gtkrc file
3) Is there anything in ~/.xsession-errors after you run Firefox? If it isn't logging to the console then it might log there
4) Try the "GTK+ Native" theme (although IMO it isn't as nice as what the Default theme seems to do with my theme) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gtk-native/

My main thought at the moment is that either Firefox/LO aren't picking up the theme for some completely unknown reason, or your staging repo has change the GTK libraries to ones that Fx/LO aren't compiled against and they've changed in such a way that the apps still work but don't style.

i found another way for trying what is wrong.
i installed the numix gtk3. Firefox and lo look ok
with it.
ichanged the numix red to suse green in the gtkrc file and it worked.
for thisreason i believe i have the necessary dependencies and don't know why it's not working
with your nice theme.

Different themes will do different things with different engines. If Numix works then that implies that Firefox/LO are okay and could load the theme. Can you try with the original themes that this is based off so that I can see if it is something that I changed that caused the problem?

Really? I'm sure I tried one the other day when packaging this (manual install - unzip the folders to "~/.themes") and while they were a little broken in places on GTK3 apps (because they target older Gnome) they still loaded and worked enough that you'd be able to tell whether GTK2 theming works (which is older and more stable).

I'm using ubuntu gnome 14.04 with gnome staging repo enabled (so gnome 3.12).
Firefox and libreoffice have that "win95-style"
abiword and gnumeric, gedit, terminal and others
look ok.
Don't know why.

I've just checked my LibreOffice and it looks fine as well. Something must be stopping them from loading the theme correctly.

What version of GTK3 are you running? And if you run Firefox or LibreOffice from the command-line, do you get any errors out?

gtk is 3.12, starting firefox or libreoffice from terminal gives no errors starting fine but win95-look.

That last screenshot looks like it has fallen back to the default "Win95-like" theme. Which version of Firefox and Gnome are you using? and how do other GTK2 apps look?

I get a dark grey menu bar (if I show it), dark grey tab background, dark grey un-focused tabs and dark grey menus, the same as other GTK2 and GTK3 apps. The "Firefox" button (the one that appears when the menu bar is hidden) goes grey when I hover it, but I think that's an issue of Firefox using the menu bar colour on a non-menu bar area. There might be a way to fix it, but I'd have to crib someone else's code.

I like green and zour green-grey combination.

But firefox seems to have a problem with your theme.

Odd. Have you got screenshots? I'm using Firefox 28 and it all looks fine to me.
