Enlightenment Radiance Theme Here's a port of the GTK Theme Radiance, light theme used on Ubuntu. These theme is complete with full Elementary widgets integrations, so enjoy your E19 with one unified look for GTK, EDJ and ELM applications!
How to use it Extract the file zipped and copy it on your home directory: ~/.elementary/themes Select with Theme Selector Radiance and Enjoy the Theme!
Where's the "Lot of Colors"? Radiance Theme is cool, but maybe you don't like it. This theme looks good with a lot of GTK themes like ZonColors and a lot of Murrina themes. You can change your color scheme with Settings -> Look -> Colors! For example:
Border Frame allows you to change the color of border title and toolbar
Border Frame Active change the gradient that appears on Selected windows. If you try a dark border, I suggest you to set Border Frame Active Alpha channel to lesser values.
Border Title and Border Title Active are generally to change if you change border title.
Unfortunately Elementary widget doesn't be affected for the change with Enlightenment's Colors Manager, so you can change more deeply your theme. How? Super Radiance Pimp!!! Extract the sources of the theme doing this:
Open a terminal
Type edje_decc ~/.elementary/themes/Radiance.edj
In your home directory you will find a folder named Radiance, go inside and ope with gedit, nano, mousepad or your favorite text editor the file named radconf.edc .
Here you can change the color value as you want. After that, open a terminal and type edje_cc ~/Radiance/default.edc -o ~/CustomRadiance.edj You will find on your home directory CustomRadiance.edj, your new theme with a lot of colors. Move it into ~/.elementary/themes folder or use Theme Selector -> Import!
At the moment the theme looks pretty good with themes not dark, with light window's colors and dark foreground. I'm working of a version for dark themes that makes also GTK Ambiance theme pretty good.
If you find something wrong, please report here in a comment or search me on Bodhi Linux Forum (I'm Duma).
Enjoy this theme and enjoy Enlightenment!

The GTK3 theme supports Gnome 3.8, 3.10 and 3.12, but the Gnome Shell theme only works on 3.10 and 3.12. Also the tabs you are seeing in nautilus, gedit, etc. are only for Gnome 3.12 due to the reworked tab system in this version.

DeLorean-Dark-Themes-3.8 ~ Join the dark side Icons - F-Dark(Faenza), Wallpaper(inner) - OTF_Dark_Grunge_09 by "nobody" Based on the Adwaita Theme.
DeLorean-3.10_alphaLink, Stripped version of DeLorean available here: Link,
This, the latest incarnation of the DeLorean-Dark gtk theme is a departure from its predecessor; in the use of both light and dark coloring. Strong contrasts and rich textures makeup the essential elements of this unusual "gray-scale" theme. This dark theme includes a secondary and complete "dark-er" Gtk3 theme. Bear in mind; the metallic background image and the some-time-excessive css design make this theme heavier than most. Therefore it is not advised for use with older computers. Ideas and experiments from my Dorian theme and the base concept of the earlier DeLorean themes have been brought together here as DeLorean-Dark-Themes-3.8.
Theme folders are numbered 3.9 as of version 08-27-2013. Currently the package is numbered as 3.8. I apologize for the confusion.
Gtk3 Theme* dark-"er" theme included.
2 Metacity/Mutter Themes (2 & 3) default steel, and carbon.
Arch Linux and Manjaro Install from AUR yaourt -S delorean-dark-themes-3.8
Other distributions Download DeLorean-Dark-Themes-3.8. Unzip and as privileged user copy the following four delorean-dark-theme-*-3.9 folders to /usr/share/themes/. This theme will not work properly when installed to ~/.themes.
Dark Theme; how to make it default (works in Ubuntu also):
Install Gnome-Tweak-Tool. Other tweaking tools such as Ubuntu-Tweak do not offer this option.
Open Gnome-Tweak-Tool and select Theme in the sidebar.
Turn on the slider that says: Enable dark theme for all applications. (only works with Gtk3 applications)
LOG-OUT, and back in. Thats it.
Ubuntu Software-Center Theme Installation:
Backup the original folder and name it "software-center.backup":
sudo cp -a /usr/share/software-center /usr/share/software-center.backup
Install the Delorean-Dark-Themes-3.9 software-center theme (This assumes the Delorean-Dark-Themes-3.9 is installed to the recommended location 'usr/share/themes/'):
/usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-theme-3.9/gtk-2.0/panel-background/*panel-size*.png and opacity.
Unity Panel Themes: Unity(default), Unity-Neon, and Unity-Simple
To change panel theme:
As privileged user, using your prefered text editor(gedit, geany, nano...) open the file at '/usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-theme-(color version if any, ie: R)-3.9/gtk-3.0/gtk-main.css(or gtk-main-dark.css, if using dark theme as default.)' For example choosing the default(blue) theme type in terminal: sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-theme-3.9/gtk-3.0/gtk-main.css.
Scroll to the bottom of the page. and locate the 3 theme lines: "at_symbol"import url("unity.css"); /*"at_symbol"import url("unity-neon.css");*/ /*"at_symbol"import url("unity-simple.css");*/
Uncomment/Remove the slash and asterisk from before '"at_symbol"import' and after 'css");' for the theme you are selecting.
Next Comment/Add the slash and asterisk before '"at_symbol"import' and after 'css");' of the previously selected panel theme.
Save and Log-out and back in again.

*gtk3.6 or gkt3.8 is required for gtk3 applications(Gnome3 apps). If using Gnome, the corresponding version is necessary (Gnome3.6-3.8). **gtk2 is entirely drawn with pixmaps-engine using image files, in this case predominately vector. Pixmap-engine is know to draw windows slower than other(murrine,clearlooks,etc...) engines; therefore the gtk2 portion of this theme renders in roughly twice the time as other non-pixmap-engine themes. This is not a problem or concern, DeLorean's gtk2 draws its windows very fast, just not as fast as other theme engines. ***gtk2 is drawn with vector graphics(svg). Most distributions include libsvg(or equivalent) by default. ****Evolution Mail; The css theming(which makes evolution completely usable, and everything visable and readable) only works starting with version 3.8.4-1. Later versions may again change what and how it is appears by this theming. Got to love gnome3.
Ok so I did some basic modding to this conkyrc file. Changed the font to Antipasto and fixed the offsets to work with the new font. Also edited CPU usage for dual core CPU's and lastley added arch info as well. Also colors have been changed as well.
Dark gtk2, gnome shell theme & metacity that closely matches Adwaita Dark 3.14. (3.12 version here Adwaita-Dark-3.12-rev.1 )
In Gnome 3.14 the gtk2 must reside in the Adwaita theme folder, at least that's been my experience.
Ok, there seems to be some confusion about how to install & use this gtk-2.0. 1. If you use gtk3 3.14 it must reside in the /usr/share/themes/Adwaita folder. (Take it up with the people who wrote that code). 2. You can remove the existing gtk-2.0, or rename it to something like light-gtk2 and place this one in its place. 3. You can use links & have a directory called light-gtk2 and name this one dark-gtk2. Then you can just use (from an admin terminal) ln -nsf light-gtk2 gtk-2.0 for the original Adwaita gtk-.20 and ln -nsf dark-gtk2 gtk-2.0 for this dark one. 4. There are many ways to go about it, you can figure out the one that works for you. 5. If you use the ~/.themes shortcut it will probably not work correctly.
Unless you recompile the gtk3 in 3.14 pointing gtk.css to gtk-container-dark.css I don't know how to get the gtk2 to use the dark metacity window border. In 3.12 you can just use a text editor to tell gtk.css to use the dark widgets (or copy gtk-dark.css over gtk.css). Another alternative is to hardcode the colors into the metacity. I had partial success doing that, but there is a bug in some color changes I made. *see change log 10.5.14
I have included the necessary resource files for 3.14 & 3.14.1 if you go the compiling route.
Anyway, if you have questions or positive comments/suggestions feel free to make yourself heard.
Almost forgot, this is a revision of my Adwaita-Dark shell theme taking some styling cues from what I did with Yeti. I think I like this version more than the original.
Change log: 10.30.14 Updated to 188.8.131.52 10.7.14 Did the arrows again, better match to gtk3 Worked on gtk2 entry borders Still looking for a solution to the white text shadow on some insensitive/disabled text. Help!!! 10.6.14 Did quite a few revisions to the image assets, primarily arrows, but touched on others as well, slider background, notebook.png & more. Also tested gtk2 on 3.12 and it looks & works well. 10.5.14 Included a modified elementary metacity with hardcoded colors to match this theme & approximate Adwaita Dark Couple minor shell improvements
