The theme is beautiful, but please fix the theme lag. When switching from a window to another one... it takes ages before the theme is updated. And it's not done at once either: some parts are painted before others... it looks terrible!

To add a hover effect to Nautilus sidebar, you can insert these lines into Nautilus section in "gtk-apps.css" file:

NautilusWindow .sidebar row:hover {
background-color: shade (@sidebar_selected_bg_color, 1.1);
color: shade (@sidebar_fg_color, 1.1);
text-shadow: 1px 1px shade (@theme_bg_color, 1.1);
}

Under Ubuntu Unity, when you maximize a window, Unity panel assumes a dual function: window title bar and menu bar. And it's located immediately above the toolbar.
However, these bars no longer look the same together as in normal windows: their background colors are very different with no smooth transition.

I think this superb theme will look much better if this issue is resolved (e.g. with a slightly darker unity panel?) as, for example, in the Greybird theme.

The solution I've finally found:

1) Open the file "gtk-apps.css"
2) Cut the whole "Unity" section (top 41 lines), paste into a new file, and save it as "gtk-unity.css"
3) Delete the whole "Gnome Panel" section (between Nautilus and Gnome Terminal sections)
4) Save and exit
5) Open the files "gtk-main-css" and "gtk-main-dark.css" and insert "@import url("gtk-unity.css");" as a new line at the end of each, and then save and exit

This ensures a smooth and seamless transition between Ubuntu's Unity Panel and maximized applications' menu/toolbar.

Nautilus 3.6.
For some reasons, Ubuntu 12.10 provides Nautilus 3.4 but you can install the new version via a PPA.

GTK2 apps are not picking up the style completely. They still use orange as the selection color.

Here's the method I've developed to make Unity dashboard (close/minimize/(un)maximize) buttons consistent with the current theme:

1) Use this script to backup the default icons for buttons:

2) Use this script to replace them with symbolic links to relevant icons in your themes unity subfolder:

Thanks so much for sharing the most beautiful GTK3 theme to date! I'm especially fond of how you did the tabs.

One issue I noticed however, is that this theme doesn't play nice with gnome-panel (aka "Gnome Classic" in Ubuntu). The color around the time/date and global menu text is a different color of grey than the rest of the panel.

Thanks again for the fantastic theme!

Just move the Faince folder from ~/.themes to /usr/share/themes and it will work!

Credits goes to an deviantart user ;)

@tiheum: Can you please add this note to the readme?

Quote:It seems Gnome Shell in 3.6.1 looks for metacity themes in ~/.local/share/themes instead of in ~/.themes. Gtk still looks for themes in ~/.themes, though. As a workaround, you can symlink one of the locations to the other one.

After retesting is still a mistake, and he made ​​a suggestion with a mockup.

In the coming days we will realize some more.

The error are desktop icons as you can see in the screenshot 1, the letters are not icons.

The suggestion is screenshot 2 where I put a mockup of closing window

I'm using Gnome Shell but the window borders don't look like they're using the RGBA antialiasing feature of Mutter, though the screenshots look like they do - am I doing something wrong?

Everything else is awesome though!

Several suggestions:

- Lyrics of the top menus of messages off ... looks too little, gray font in so clear that almost invisible on any computer.

- The "x" for closing windows would put more red shading hardly see.

- The letters of the icons is too light. Not seen in the desktop, should have the same hue as ambiance.

On the other hand, can tell me where I can change the color of the highlight and the progress bar to pass from blue to orange ubuntu. This theme would be perfect if it were in orange is the official color of ubuntu, and besides being a visually high-contrast color is better.
