Description:

I finished tweaking this black gtk theme as you can see in the screenshots it looks pretty good. All credit goes to original authors http://fav.me/d4j2r5l alecive . I love the window borders he created.

I learned that dark themes look cool but are a pain in the ...to tweak LOL!!

Update 3/12/2012: Thanks to nowerries for telling me how to fix Ubuntu Software Center. I'm trying to figure out a way to apply this fix to my dark themes but until then use this fix.

**********Bugs***********

Only bug I have noticed so far is fonts unreadable in Ubunut Software Center the fix for this is to in terminal type...

sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css

.... and change the color value of @define-color super-light-aubergine to #000000.


Update 2/25/2012: Just cleaned some code up

Update 2/24/2012: Fixed Unity panel and GTK-2 the combobox, selected text, tabs and a few other settings ;)

Major Update 2/20/2012: Complete overhaul I used my Black Widow GTK theme but changed all the red to white/Grey. I think this one blows the old one away as I have a better understanding of GTK themes now.

This is based originally off of Adwaita but completely re-done. Once again I used the window borders from ANewStartBlood by *alecive http://fav.me/d4j2r5l Thanks to him for making awesome borders :D. If you want to keep the original one rename it and extract this one.

This one uses the same name SO IT WILL OVERWRITE THE OLD ONE.....Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Oh yeah the gnome shell theme is something I did and am releasing it now so check it out I called it Clear-GS It's my GS Back-n-Black with the panel transparent ;)

Updated 2/07/2012:Unity panel now displays the right colors. Fixed a few highlighting here and there. Still trying to figure out firefox. If anyone has an idea let me know.

Updated 1/21/2010: I changed the progress bar to have more of a radius. Fixed the selected check boxes to have a grey border (so you can see where to put the check in them).


1/21/2012: GTK-2 Requires gtk2-engines-murrine 0.98 or higher thx to reference2myself for figuring that out ;-)

1/19/2012: Fixed the evolution not displaying html emails correctly. Checkout my DA site to see better screenshot and for more updates.

Ah give it time I was a big kde guy myself but I have gnome shell exactly the way I want it and it looks awesome with all the themes coming out. What distro are you using?

might change my mind if i can get your theme working though, lol, maybe it depends on a certain theme engine for the gtk2 stuff?

using Linux Mint Debian Edition, with Sid for my main repo, i don't know if i can get used to not using compiz and having such a lack of features and control, compiz is the main reason i switched to linux lol

Hmm...Where do you have the themes installed? Maybe it's a rights issue. Are the ones that are working in your home .themes folder?
