Description:

Maxim is a bright, fresh, spacious and easy on the eye theme.

I have been working a lot on the details in this theme, but there are most likely stuff which I haven't covered. If you notice something which looks out of place then don't be afraid to drop a message or comment and I'll have a look at it :-)

This is a fork of my previous theme, Axiom, so if you liked that you will (hopefully) love this.

----------------------| Installation |-
1) Extract the archive and put Maxim in ~/.local/share/themes/
2) Select Maxim from Gnome Tweak Tool
3) Enjoy.


----------------------| Useful extensions |-
User themes [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/19/user-themes/ ] You need this.

Dock [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/307/dash-to-dock/ ] Tip: Turn off the Show Window Count Indicator if you want the active program to have a dock-shadow.

Legacy icons [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1031/topicons/ ]


----------------------| Others |-
I made a tweak for Firefox to blend in better in the Elementary Desktop, but it works with Gn-OSX-Sierra too [ http://hackan301.deviantart.com/art/Firefox-ElementaryOS-684374615 ]

FYI:
GTK+ theme: Gn-OSX-HSierra
Icon theme: La Capitaine
Wallpaper: elementaryOS

Last changelog:

| 2017.08.07 | 14 days ago

* Fixed color for default button. However it only seems to apply for password-dialogs. Not sure at this point if that is a Shell-limitation. Will continue to try to include all modal dialogs.
* Adjusted shadows for panel text and icons so that they can be seen better with really bright wallpapers.

Gaps among items in the menus need to be adjusted especially for thrid party menus like arc menu. And if I'm not mistaken, the origin right-click menus once had a silver gradient background. It's pity that the dazzling white has taken the place.Anyway, good theme!

Assuming you are talking about the right-click-menus in the dock I think that the gaps between items might be separators. Nevertheless I will have a look at it, as well with the arc menu.
Yeah, "Axiom" has a bit of a gradient in the menus. But here the design developed more and more towards being flat and clean.

Thank you for your feedback :-) And also glad you like the theme :-)

Spent some time on the Workspace-Thumbnails in the Overview, I decided it needed a bit more body and I think the outcome is pretty sweet. Preview on the last photo.
