Description:

Arc-Black-COLORS is a flat, dark-mode theme with transparent elements, for GTK, xfwm4, openbox-3, GNOME-Shell, and Cinnamon desktop environments. Black-on-black-on-black, with a single color, right where you want it.

Arc theme is 2019's most popular theme, as it has been for the past couple of years, according to major sources: (August 2, 2019) https://www.ubuntupit.com/top-15-best-gnome-shell-themes-gnome-desktop/.

The well-embraced standard Arc theme has always been available in the three variants of Arc, Arc-Dark, and Arc-Darker; but, at last, the measurably darkest dark-Arc has arrived on the GTK+ scene. Even at it dimmest, the earlier Arc variants have never quite satisfied those who need the lights turned down real low, but this darkest-of-all variant should fix all of that.


Special thanks to horst3180 at: https://github.com/horst3180/Arc-theme, for initially advancing Arc, and for inspiration. Further thanks to NicoHood at: https://github.com/NicoHood/arc-theme, for keeping Arc alive and great, more currently.


Manual Installation Is Easy:

Extract the "tar.xz" file into your "~/.themes/" folder - to install for current user only - or into the "/usr/share/themes/" folder - for the theme to be applied globally. 2) Use the GNOME Tweak Tool or an equivalent app to enable it for your desktop.

If installing manually, make sure to install the dependency: "Murrine theme engine" if you do not already have it; and update your GTK+packages if you have not.

Logging out and then logging back in may be necessary on some operating systems to fully implement theme.

I just switched from your 'darkest-colors' version I used for months, and I think I like this one better. Everything is so easy to read with this contrast scheme. Thank you man!

4 When windows overlap, the readability is greatly reduced. In particular, multitabs terminal is very hard to read, everything is black. It looks like this theme is designed more to appear black than to be readable.

The provides zip are confusing: xxx_3-36_1.47.zip and xxx_1.47.zip what are the difference? Buggy theme, titlebar be come transparent. Must move mouse around to redisplay the titlebar.

This is either a fake review or you downloaded the wrong version or something. This official Arc theme has been tested 10s of thousands of times. What you speak of is absurd.

Great theme, really enjoying it. A quick question, I would like to change the panel highlight color in Thunar, to the panel background color and have just the letters light up. Can you please let me know what file and what lines I would need to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.
