Thanks for the theme friend.
But I'm having some problem with GTK3 windows, almost every item is rounded by a line:

Do you know what can be?

I'm running GTK 3.16.5 and XFCE 4.12 on Arch Linux 64bits.

Thanks in advance.

It is because of GTK3 version. Theme was developed for GTK 3.8, which i still use. Since GTK 3.10 theme engine was changed, my theme needs to be reworked.

Oh, I understand.
I'm trying to use "old" GTK2 version of what I can.
But I know that active GTK2 apps sometime will become GTK3 as XFCE, wich developers announced already about 4.14 version.

Here, my GTK3 version is on 3.16.

I'll keep eyes on here waiting for updates. :D

Thanks for answer.
Have cheers! o/

Hi, can you please make a redmond theme with original color like the gtk2 theme but for gtk3.
I realy like to have a uniform theme for gtk2/gtk3/wine applications, or a good integration for wine apps with gtk2/gtk3 apps and desktop.
I'm using Mate Desktop and I've tried in settings changing the color to the original redmond theme but it only changes it for gtk2 apps. :-(
I've tried some themes like raleigh but it's not close enough to redmond.

I think it not so easy, adapt gtk2 redmond theme for gtk3. Because of 2-pixel border of classic redmond theme with different color for each pixel. It is hard to achive that effect (and draw other controls of redmond theme) with pure css coding (maybe css gradient command, don`t know...). Briefly, i don`t want to start that work, because i do not use redmond theme for myself.

PS. Sorry for my english.

Today I downloaded again the theme, and update to the newer versions. I encountered the same bug with black windows with gtk3 apps and Archlinux.

My problem was that I was copying the theme to /usr/share/themes .
When I copy it to ~/.themes, everything works great. This is the only theme that doesn't work when I copy it to the shared folder.

It's not very important issue, but I hope the 'fix' will work for those who have problems.

And to the author, thanks again for this great theme!
Have a nice day.

Strangely, for me this theme work just fine in /usr/share/themes folder. But i use archlinux with xfce, and all my few gtk3 applications looks good.

I want to use #0A2368 instead of #7c9fc2 for selected_bg_color but I need to change the text of progress bar from black/dark to bright/white.

How do I do so?

I like Mint theme for gtk2. But gnome3 just sucks. All gtk3/gtk2 themes including famous zukitwo are not matched very well. This is the missing theme I am looking for.

Strangely.
I use xfce 4.10 too (archlinux). And all my few gtk3 apps looks fine. Maybe this is a some "special" application, not all? Can you post screenshot?

And how do you apply this theme? Is there another theme, that looks good?

Looks really great!

One problem though:
when using your theme, my wallpaper disappears and the background is all grey.
I'm using gnome 3.8 on arch linux.

Any ideas?

Sorry for so late reply. I am not use Gnome Shell and can not verify your message. Google can not help me too ;)

Can you try this experimental version: http://db.tt/thOQm3oz

I will try to include it in the next release. At the moment, this fix requires a lot of work with other elements.

Thank you for making this!

I've been using Linux for many years, ever since Gnome-Look was my source of 'artwork'.

Today was the first time I register on the website, just because I wanted to thank you for this theme.

I hope you'll maintain it in the future, if Gnome's people try to break again gtk.

So far, I didn't find any bug. So good job!

Bye.

It's nice to see that there are still people who appreciate 'retro' themes. I think this looks good, though the colours are a bit too gray for my taste. Still great though.

Report

I think the same!

Yet, I do think that the creator of this them would make a separate version which is fidelity (in height and colors) to the original Mist of gtk2 in order to increase popularity or "retro" themes ;-)
