Black-Amber-1 (Gnome Shell 3.2.1-184.108.40.206 > GTK3 - GTK2) theme is an update to Black Widow a red and black rendition inspired by the colors of the venomous spider. I have added the GTK3 > GTK2 mods for a more complete experience, hence the name change to avoid confusion with my friend CrazyT's theme [link] . I would like to do shell mods in all the primary colors if possible and a couple of shades too, then gradually refine them all. That means newer versions for each mod over time, so as always you're thoughts are welcome, enjoy

Backup your theme directory first. Extract the zip file and rename "gnome-shell" directory to "theme" and copy to /usr/share/gnome-shell/. This path is usually where GNOME Shell is installed. Restart GNOME Shell by Alt, F2, then type r and press enter.
You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier installation of themes.
This theme is compatible with GNOME Shell 3.0.
This theme supports the gnome-tweak-tool/extension for easy theme switching. Just download the zip, load up the GNOME Tweak Tool, go to Shell>Shell Theme and find the zipped theme from the box and select it.
Extra: X3ME Covergloobus theme is also available! You can find it here: [link]
