Description:

Cobalt is my first attempt at a gnome-shell theme, so I hope you guys enjoy it. It has been
tested on gnome-shell version 3.18.5 but should work well with others as well.

Based on LUIS VILCHES A.'s Uranus-V0.0.2 gnome-shell theme. So a special thanks to him
You can try the above mentioned from https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1013057/

The new color changer included in this version of Cobalt was totally inspired from
the ACID theme configurator by Padster which you can try out by visiting
https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1013060/. My way is not as good as it, but gets
the job done.


Instructions
==========
0) If you're running gnome-shell version 3.24 (type in gnome-shell --version in terminal to check) these steps will not work for you please refer to the readme provided with the 3.24 compatible version of this theme

1) Extract the zip file and copy it to ~/.themes (/home/username/.themes) (In order to use the color changer you'll have to keep it here)

2) Open up tweak tool and select the Cobalt theme from the shells available

3) Now in order to apply different colors first of all you'll need the RGB value of the color you want which can be
fetched by searching google or if you're really lazy just go to http://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp.

4) Open up your terminal and do the following:-

* cd ~/.themes/Cobalt_Chameleon/gnome-shell (or Cobalt_Chameleon_with_GTK3 in case of the gtk file)
* chmod +x chameleon
* ./chameleon r,g,b (only write down the numerical values no need to write rgb and without spaces in between
cuz I haven't handled them both in the code. :p SORRY!)

eg: ./chameleon 255,0,0

5) Please read the README.md file for a clear overview on how to use and the do's and dont's for this theme.

6) Enjoy :) !

If you wanna use the colors displayed in the pic:-
./chameleon 255,0,0 makes it Red
./chameleon 255,255,0 makes it Yellow
./chameleon 0,255,0 makes it Green
./chameleon 255,255,255 makes it White

Note: If the color change through chameleon doesn't apply to you app eg: nautilus, then please kill it from the terminal (cmd: killall nautilus) and open it up again to see the change.

- You can either download the shell with GTK3 theme or without it from the files section here.

There's a bug in the chameleon script. Ubuntu 16.04 aliases dash to sh, which has slightly different script interpretation, so on line 18, ```oldColor=()``` you'll get an unexpected '(' message. The change is really simple, however, just add a shebang line with ```#1 /usr/bin/env bash``` which I think you were trying to do with the first line in it, but you left out the bang (!), but also ```/usr/bin/env bash``` is typically the preferred shebang now since so many people use so many different shells like zsh, fish, csh, dash, bash, sh, etc and /usr/bin/env bash will give you a more consistent run across environments, otherwise great, except the text color, I think I'm gonna hack it on my system to be white instead of the kind of yellow-ish offwhite in menus...
