Gray Revenge - 1.7




Because every detail matters.

GrayRevenge is a complete suite for GNOME 3.4. It comes with GTK2, GTK3, Metacity, Unity, Gnome-shell, Cinnamon, Xfwm themes. Slick, fast, and elegant.

WARNING: this theme works for GNOME3.4 / Ubuntu 12.04 users, but it will not work for previous versions of GNOME or Ubuntu.

All the credits to minteastwood [link] for XFWM theme. Thanks to satya164 [link] and its Orion theme for made me able to understand new GNOME 3.4 theming and release this suite.

I like this theme very much, but I could use some more gray and darkness. For the record, I'm on
Debian 7.1, xfce4.8, setup to look like gnome 2.
I used the following colors in
gtk_color_scheme = "bg_color:#16191a\nselected_bg_color:#7c8086\nbase_color:#333333"
gtk_color_scheme = "fg_color:#eaeaea\nselected_fg_color:#FFFFFF\ntext_color:#EAEAEA"
gtk_color_scheme = "tooltip_bg_color:#333333\ntooltip_fg_color:#EDEDED"
gtk_color_scheme = "link_color:#2677CB"                           
gtk_color_scheme = "dark_bg_color:#353535\ndark_fg_color:#EAEAEA"
and changed a bit of
    fg[NORMAL]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
    fg[PRELIGHT]    = Dark_fg_color
    fg[ACTIVE]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
    fg[SELECTED]    = shade (0.9, Dark_fg_color)
PS: in gtk2.0/gtkrc find the row starting with 'style "treeview" {' and add after it:
    text[NORMAL]      = text_color
    text[PRELIGHT]    = text_color
    text[SELECTED]    = Selected_fg_color
    text[INSENSITIVE] = shade (0.8, bg_color)
    text[ACTIVE]      = darker (text_color)
In thunar-vcs-plugin the gtktreeview list that shows the files becomes unreadable and does not honor global text color.
