Description:

Adwaita Dark Green is based on Adwaita but with a darker colour set (inspired by Mediterranean Night Dark*) and dark menu bars.

I find Adwaita too bright, and the Mediterranean series didn't keep up with GTK3's progress, so I made my own version. I used Adwaita as a base as it made integrating changes to GTK's internal changes easier.

Originally built for GTK 3.16 and actively maintained for GTK 3.20+.

Last changelog:

v1.0.5 22 days ago

Fixed disabled buttons on spinbuttons in background (backdrop) windows so that they don't turn dark grey.

Rebuild the dark theme (identical to Adwaita except for the selection colour)

Hi there! Thank you very much for sharing with us. This theme works and looks great on my Xubuntu 16.04!

very nice work.... I'm not a fan of the shade of green you've used but the overall colour design is exellent!
Much easier on the eyes and easier to identify elements on windows, toolbars and menus

I'm glad you generally like it, even if you don't like the green. I think I based it on an old version of openSUSE that I started using - somewhere around 11.3, when they were using their own Gnome theme.

If you want to change the green then all you need to do is install the Ruby SASS modules, edit line 24 of gtk.scss (https://dev.ibboard.co.uk/repos/other/Adwaita-Dark-Green/file/e6f584bf0745/gtk-3.20/gtk.scss#l24) and run the "parse-sass.sh" script and the whole thing will recompile with your new colour

Great work, great theme!
But you have to bring some corrections to gtk.css file (in my case I had to do the corrections to gtk.css under gtk-3.20, but you'll probably have to do the same work under gtk-3.0 and gtk-3.18...).
Journal log is complaining about gtk.css deprecated options length with linear-gradient, you can't set just one color anymore, but have to set two (i.e. gtk.css:217:56: Using one color stop with linear-gradient() is deprecated. ).
You can retrieve all these lines by doing the following : "# journalctl | grep .css"
Also when specifying a font, you have to use CSS syntax and specify it as "font-family:" ( i.e. févr. 02 17:24:06 debtrfs gedit[9323]: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:4422:17: Using Pango syntax for the font: style property is deprecated; please use CSS syntax).

I'm aware of those warnings, but they're not caused by me and I can't fix them directly given how the theme is built.

This theme takes Adwaita, imports it, and then overrides some bits (base colours, menus, etc). Both of those warnings come from original Adwaita theme files. Without editing those files (which I avoid so as to keep my theme easy to maintain) I can't fix those errors.

Which version of GTK are you using?

Well I'm even using gtk-3.22, I'm on Debian Sid.
I know you've taken this directly from Adwaita, but you can fix them properly by doing the following : i.e. when you encouter this type of line
--> background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #c6c6c6);
you just have to replace it, or complete if your prefer, like that :
--> background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #c6c6c6, #c6c6c6);
This doesn't fundamentaly change the behaviour of the theme but avoid complains in log file... Just copy/paste the same color twice, that's what is required by linear-gradient.

Yes, the required change itself is simple, but no, it cannot easily be fixed with the way I am modifying the theme.

The theme is built from SCSS files that are parsed to generate the CSS. I intentionally do not change the underlying common.scss etc so that I can easily compare between versions to see what issues I might need to fix. If I start making changes like that to the original Adwaita files rather than my override file then, no matter how small they start, they'll end up making it difficult to maintain.

It sounds like GTK 3.22 might have changed something. I'll see how big the changes are and whether the recent GTK stability means that I can back-port the standard GTK 3.22 Adwaita files as 3.20 theme files so that I don't have to maintain too many versions.

By the way I already did it here on my installation, and it works fine, no more logs about that.

I've been using this one for a while now and I am thankful that you made it. There are too many flat themes at the moment and I really prefer something with a bit more depth. The color scheme is great and everything looks polished. The only issue I have is that crease along the top of the the title bar.
Keep it up!

I'm glad you like it - most of the design is the Adwaita appearance, I just darkened it so it was easier on my eyes!

I'm not sure which bit you mean be the "crease". Can you show me an example?

Thanks.

This right here:

It's an area that is shaded with a darker gradient, about 5px in height.

I thought it was just the highlighting at first, but I've checked and it does go dark-light-dark where the original Adwaita went dark-lighter-lighest.

I've fixed that now and released 1.0.1.

Rebuild the dark theme (identical to Adwaita except for the selection colour)

Fix background colour of Nautilus path bar. Somehow it was correct when I took the screenshot, but not in the uploaded stylesheet!

Updated to GTK 3.20+ support to GTK 3.24 (but also tested on 3.22 and should work on 3.20).

Updated Nautilus CSS to style the new path bar in 3.30 but keep the old format in older versions.

v1.0.2 1 year ago

Updated to GTK3.22 (but applied to 3.20 as well) and added bug/compatibility fixes
* CSS warnings should be gone
* Added extra Nautilus support (e.g. pie charts in Properties dialogs)
* Fixed several situations of header bar buttons turning light grey
* Fixed Firefox tab text when using GTK3 builds
* Fixed scrollbar colours (bar wasn't always visible in trough)
* Export a base colour to set better terminal backgrounds
