Hi some months ago you taught me how to get the blue "effect" used in Ceti in Vertex.
This time there was no dark overides css file so I just added the same thing at the end of the contained.css and it worked out just fine :)
Still got the beautiful "effect"

Another question - say I want to change all the blue to another color which hexcode is it I need to change? I was thinking of trying with a red color instead of blue. I suspect it is #F3F3F5 and I can just replace all these with my choice. Is that about right?

Last - am I right when I think that the whole theme is more ordered now? Before it was a lot of files in the folders. dark override - darker override and so on. Now it seems it is just this contained css file?

Thanks in advance for any answer :)

Modifying the theme got a bit more complex, since I ported it to Sass. See here for further information about Sass: http://sass-lang.com
The css files in this package are the output of .scss files. You can see the source directory on my github page (this is the gtk3 theme for gtk 3.14 for example)
https://github.com/horst3180/Vertex-theme/tree/master/Vertex-gtk-3.14/gtk-3.0
You can get this with "git clone https://github.com/horst3180/vertex-theme"
If you want to modify the theme, you need to edit _common.scss in most cases (this is where all the main widget styles are defined). You can paste your modifications at the bottom of this file. Remember to adjust the names of the variables.
All colors are defined in _colors.scss. I you want to change the blue color, you have to replace $_selected_bg_color: #4080fb; with any other color you like.
After you have made your changes save the .scss files and then run the parse-sass.sh script in the directory. This will generate the gtk-contained.css files.
Now copy the whole vertex-theme directory to a different location and execute the build.sh script. This will give you a .zip file similar to the one I uploaded here. Never run the build.sh script in your working directory. It will create a huge mess.
That's pretty much my workflow. It may seem complex, but by porting the theme to Sass I managed to reduce the code by more than 1k lines.

Do you have any other extensions installed that could interfere with the userchrome.css?

On Cinnamon, I can't be happier. Nice work, one of the most polished and elegant dark themes I have ever used. Any chance for some dedicated XFCE support to fix the elements that the gtk theme misses (mainly in the panel, like the Indicator applet)? My XFCE computer is very jealous of my Cinnamon one with this theme.

Awesome, thanks for the update. Looking great on Xubuntu 14.04 with xfce 4.12. Indicator plug in is perfect.

Hi there,
great work!!
Have read that your folder icons are selfmade, yet not available for download. Any chance that I may get them? I do not like coloured icons, and such minimalistic/greyish ones like yours fit pretty much my taste...

Thanks anyways.

Sorry for the late reply. I plan to release those icons eventually, but icon design takes a huge amount of time and I don't want to release something half baked.

Hi, I have heard about this issue before. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to affect every user. I can't reproduce it and therefore can't find what's going wrong. However I keep this in mind and try to find a solution.

Nice theme, I really like it.
And I have a little suggestion. What about Vertex theme with Dark-blue color? I think that it will be cool :-)

Hello there,

Great theme, love it. However I've recently done a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and applied the theme but no GTK apps are getting styled. Unity is styled fine, Chrome and Firefox are fine but everything else falls back to the, err, fallback Gnome theme. Any ideas? Checked permissions in /usr/share/themes, all looks good. What am I doing wrong? Cheers
Dan

As an Ubuntu user, I prefer Vertex to Ambiance and Faience to Radience, because the former are far closer to perfection. And I'm grateful that you are much much quicker in updating Vertex than Faience (although it's a little closer to perfection ;-)

I have a couple of issues with Vertex, which I hope can be resolved in due course:

1) Toolbar bgcolor in gtk2 apps (I've mentioned this before, and have been using a tweak, but perhaps you can resolve this better one day)

2) Thunderbird main window: I use a custom userChrome.css for this, but I'm not very satisfied with the (amateurish) result, so I'm hoping also that you can perhaps provide a special solution for Thunderbird like you do for Chrome web browser, which looks very nice.

3) A Nautilus bug: sometimes, bgcolor in Nautilus main pane goes black (which doesn't happen in Faience).

Thanks again for this great work of art :-)

Hi,

1) I tried to make the toolbars + toolbar buttons dark. While it works fine for some applications, some others have bugs like unreadable text.
Basically I have to agree with this bug report for Ambiance
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mate/+bug/1338132

2) I already began investigating the thunderbird issues. Currently there are only dark-theme issues reported, but for the other themes it's okay too to report there. See https://github.com/horst3180/Vertex-theme/issues/14

3) This looks like the overlay-scrollbar issue. Try disabling the overlay scrollbars as described in the README, this should fix this. I won't workaround this issue in my theme because it is the patched Gtk version that Ubuntu is using that is causing this issue and it should be fixed by them (obviously still not fixed with 14.10).
Also see here https://github.com/horst3180/Vertex-theme/issues/11
There is a proposed workaround, but I read somewhere that this doesn't work all the time.

OK, thanks, I understand the complexity of issues 1 & 3 (I hope they will be over in due course), and will follow up Thunderbird issue on github.

Hi
First off, a big thank you for this beautiful theme. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to editing theme files so here's a question. I would love to have this effect from Ceti in Vertex Dark;

Could you please tell me what part in the file this is? I think it looks awesome :)
