They should look like the buttons in the dark header-bars to be consistent with the gtk3 theme.

Sorry, you see I know little about theming and I use Unity, so no header-bars here. Here's my screenshot (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39189022/vertex-gedit-kkedit-toolbar.png) showing Unity Top Panel, gedit (GTK3) and kkedit (GTK2) with titlebar and toolbar using the same bgcolor (as tweaked by me) and displaying light icons. The only problem with this GTK2 toolbar is that when you hover, the button turns almost white, making the image almost invisible. Probably you mean this.
Anyway, I don't think I can do more than that -- at least at the moment -- to tweak the GTK2 theme.

I've temporarily solved the issue with toolbar buttons using these alternative assets as well as your "button-pressed" alternative: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39189022/button-prelight-nohilight.png and https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39189022/button-prelight.png
Perhaps a vertical gradient could make them more consistent with GTK3 apps toolbar buttons.

Hi.
Would you please look at these screenshots?
I don't know why firefox and thunderbird don't obey the theme and also tabs are a little weird.
You know, i'm beginner at these things.

Hi,
the tabs look wierd because I think you installed the 3.12 version of the theme. Remove the theme and install it from the "Gnome_3-10_Ubuntu-14-04" folder.
The firefox problem seems to be an issue with the gtk2 theme. Make sure you have the package gtk2-engines-pixbuf installed. If that doesn't fix it, it's likely a permission problem. Please read the README on how to change the permissions.
Since you use Ubuntu you can also copy the theme to ~/.themes (if you haven't already done that) to avoid permission problems.

Oh well, i reinstalled from "Gnome_3-10_Ubuntu-14-04" to "~/.theme" folder and didn't forget to install gtk2-engines-pixbuf. Mozilla's problem solved but tabs not. Also applications that require root permission are wierd too.

Oh, I know what's the problem. To fix the tabs you need to install gnome-themes-standard. To make the theme available for root, copy the folder to /usr/share/themes (see README).

It worked! Thank you. Although it is different from yours in your screenshots.

Yes, thats because Ubuntu uses Gtk 3.10 and the tab styling changed with Gtk 3.12. So what you see are the standard Gtk 3.10 tabs that can't be styled to look like the new ones, so I leave them like this.

My new GTK theme ;)
Even without using the chromium theme it does look nice !
Do you have any suggestion about a GS theme ?
Last question ;) what's the background app's name in the second screenshot ?
Thanks a lot!

Thanks! I think this http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zukitwo-Dark-Shell?content=165096 is a very good shell theme. The app in the second screenshot is gthumb-git https://github.com/GNOME/gthumb

nice theme. The only issue I found so far is the title bars on firefox popup windows. Light variant is OK but dark only shows borders of the letters.

And the same is on firefox download manager and GIMP title bar and Easytag title bar. And probably all other GTK2 app tilterbars.

Ok, that looks like the metacity theme isn't set, so the window borders aren't decorated properly. Make sure you have selected the theme in gnome tweak tool. It has to be set in the first entry that says "Window" aswell.
Or execute

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "Vertex"

If that doesn't work please read the troubleshooting section in the README.

Yes, that was the problem. The thing is that metacity themes in ~/.themes doesn't work on gnome3. But I moved the theme to usr/share/themes and now it's OK.

THX again for your great work.

Saw the screenshot of this on dA a week or two back, nice to see it released :)

It's not quite as easy on the eyes as, say, Mediterranean Night (because of the flat white everywhere as opposed to some kind of gray) but it's well-designed overall.
After a bit of tinkering, this is probably the best-looking theme I've used since GrayRevenge :D

Few bits of feedback/bug reporting from my experience so far with the 3.10 version:
- Theme as a whole feels rather bright
- Close buttons in Nemo tabs are unnecessarily far off from the right, and cause truncation of tab titles somewhat quickly https://i.imgur.com/hcm2AQP.png
- Border colors for vertical notebooks seem to be a bit off, where vertical lines are a different color from the horizontal? https://i.imgur.com/hk2U18W.png
- Notebook in gnome-terminal isn't dark-themed http://i.imgur.com/24f7DD9.png
- Seconding the suggestions from a couple days ago, and dark sidebar would be nice in Nemo as well ;)

Hi,

I'am on Arch with gnome 3.12 and I have this issue. What's wrong ?

Well that's strange because I have the same setup. It seems that the theme doesn't load at all and falls back to the ugly default gtk theme. Are you sure the permissions are set correctly i.e. can you access the files with nautilus? You could also try to install the theme locally, if you haven't already.

You know, I am now on the Arch and Linux world so I don't know what kind of permission I should set. Yesterday I tried to change the permissions for some reasons and the access to my home folder was denied so I won't play with this hihi

The problem are the permissions for sure because if I open nautilus with sudo with termial your theme is applied

I will take a look for these permission. If you can suggest me the good one it would be great sir.

Thanks.
