Description:

If Carapace makes you happy - show your support by rating it up! :-)

::: Installation :::

1) Extract and put Carapace in either ~.themes/ or ~.local/share/themes/
2) Select Carapace from Gnome Tweak Tool


::: Required Extensions :::

- User themes: [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/19/user-themes/ ]
- Dash to Dock: [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/307/dash-to-dock/ ]


::: Useful Extensions :::

- OpenWeather: [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/750/openweather/ ]
-- Because while the Gnome weather-program is cool, your location might not be there.

- Mconnect: [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1272/mconnect/ ]
-- Any KDE Connect user needs this :-D

- Custom Corner: [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1037/customcorner/ ]
-- Creates more freedom

- Blyr: [ https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1251/blyr/ ]
-- Adds blurred background for the Overview


::: NOT Recommended Extensions :::

- Carapace has a built-in responsive panel. So an panel-altering extension is not needed, and for the full experience not recommended whatsoever.


::: About :::

I have been trying to take as much advantage of the different states of gnome-shell as possible, my wish and attempt has been to make the desktop diverse and alive.

There are four colors in this theme;
[blue] is the hover-color
[green] indicates something which is focused/checked/selected/Active, using arrow-keys works fine - pressing Enter will execute
[yellow] wants you to pay attention to something
[red] tells you that you are about to end something

I have spent almost three months tinkering on this theme. I was hoping to have it ready as an xmas-upload, but I always find new things to redesign.

I suppose I can share this as a belated welcome-back-to-Gnome-Ubuntu-Celebration-upload :-D


::: Known Issues :::

Gnome-Shell seems to, at the moment, have issues with panel icon shadows when switching between normal and solid panel modes. This happens regardless of theme or active extensions. Switching workspace or clicking a panel-button updates the icon shadows.

Enjoy!

This theme looks very good. I'm looking for a gtk theme to use with it. What gtk theme are you using? Thanks.

If I am not mistaken I am using Arc Darker in the screenshots. It works pretty well together with Carapace :-)

I really, really like this theme... Its super polished! except there's one small problem. I hate the colors green and blue, and I know hate is a strong word. Do you think that in a future version of this theme you could make it so that people can customize the colors by editing a config file or something?

I'll try to come up with something. Been thinking about maybe making a graphite version for a while.

+Very good quality work. Dynamic border effects looks good on my wall papers. I have not checked on a wide range yet. But very good work. Good future for GNOME
