Description:

Dark theme. Arose from Ambiance. But I greatly modified the code. Tested in Ubuntu 14.10 Gtk3.10. Added a dark theme for Firefox and Thunderbird.Include dark theme for YouTube.
Tested on Firefox version 38.0 and Thunderbird version 31.0. New version is with theme for cinnamon. Add theme Firefox for pages about: series, about:preferences, addons...

How to install:
Download theme, unzip, copy theme folder to /usr/share/themes folder as admin.

Install Unity-tweak-tool and sett the theme.
Because software-center in Ubuntu has a hard set the background color to be changed.
Run a terminal and type:
sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css
change the line
@define-color super-light-aubergine #F4F1F3;
on the
@define-color super-light-aubergine #3c3b37;

Firefox:
How to make Firefox work better with dark themes. It is not a Firefox theme.
Unpack the theme package and locate the chrome folder. Next go to '~/.mozilla/firefox/xSomeNumbers.default'.
If there is no 'chrome' folder, just copy and paste the one from inside the theme folder.
If there is a 'chrome' folder, merge its contents with the theme 'chrome' folder.
Use default theme in Firefox.
Restart Firefox to apply the theme.

Thunderbird:
How to make Thunderbird work better with dark themes.
Unpack the theme package and locate the chrome folder. Next go to '~/.thunderbird/xSomeNumbers.default'.
If there is no 'chrome' folder, just copy and paste the one from inside the theme folder.
If there is a 'chrome' folder, merge its contents with the theme 'chrome' folder.
Restart Thunderbird to apply the theme.

For uninstall, remove content from chrome folders.

Hi,

I installed a theme on Fedora 22 and there is a problem with overscroll effects, they are opaque virtually covering the content behind them. In general I think the transparency effects do not work (small popup windows in nautilus have opaque grey shadows).

What am I missing? Any hint would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi!
So my theme is for Ubuntu and derivatives.... Not for Fedora. I don’t have installed Fedora. So I don’t know what she looks like my theme on Fedora.

Looks really nice on gtk2 but it crashes gtk3 for me. What version of gtk3 is this supposed to be used on? I get this error when opening seahorse, on Debian 8 which uses gtk 3.14:

(seahorse:9352): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:5:1: '/*' in comment block

(seahorse:9352): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:6:1: '/*' in comment block

(seahorse:9352): Gtk-WARNING **: Style property "border-top-left-radius" is not gettable
