Gnome shell, GTK & metacity for 3.14

Nothing really significant but discovered that the gtk-3.0 theme could be run without being compiled so simplified use by being able to keep everything in a single theme folder.  Also uses Adwaita metacity with native dark colors making hardcoded Elementary metacity I included earlier unnecessary.

Also attempted to correct some entry box problems in Firefox (gtkrc) and probably some other browsers & applications.

Shell theme created by me
Adwaita dark gtk3 by the Adwaita team
Dark gtk2 modified by me from Adwaita gtk2
Metacity Adwaita

Change log:
11.11.14
Gtk3 theme updated to 3.14.5
Added some nth: row variegation & hover effects

*note: I use & develop my themes on Archlinux, if you use another distro & the theme, particularly the GTK, doesn't display properly it may be because your distribution doesn't yet support it.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Needed this. Never really themed gnome 3 before and this got all my non gtk3 windows to turn gray, so my eyes don't get burnt out. You are awesome. Please keep up the great work!

This line in the fixes for Firefox section:

GtkWidget::cursor-color = "#000"

unfortunately changes the caret everywhere by default, which makes it invisible in other apps. The Firefox code should perhaps be commented out by default, with instructions on how to activate it just for Firefox…

Good catch.

Am using 3.16 now & have quit doing themes.
Your comment will have to be only correction that current& future users can apply themselves.

Please tell me an updated version is coming out very soon for Gnome 3.16...Waaaah!

I tried it with 3.16 without noticeable problems but with the changes they made by compiling the theme into a resource file put a crimp in my process.

On top of that my PC is in the UK and I'm in the US until late July. If I can figure out how to work around what they changed odds are this won't be updated until 3.18 comes out.

For me, it's mainly buttons are not styled correctly any more in some apps since 3.16, e.g. Chromiums alert dialog boxes, or SublimeText's save dialog. (buttons are still light, so light text on light background makes it unreadable).

Not a major problem for me as I generally know what they buttons are for :)

Great theme btw, been using it for about a month or two, and really like it.

Thank you.

Was only able to give it a quick glance on my son's machine but not in a position that allows me to put the hours/days required to try and update it. Plus the fact they made changes that for the time being prevent me from working on it the way I've grown used to.

Glad you're one of the few that likes it. :-)

Could you improve the Thunderbird support *pleas*

PS: an AUR package would be nice =)
cbowman57's avatar
Not sure if this will help with Thunderbird, but it's how I 'fix' Firefox on my system.

It's a dark theme, if you use Firefox you can make a custom  .gtkrc-2.0 file in the user directory that contains something like this: (Can also apply Firefox, maybe Thunderbird theme that works)
style "ff" {
text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
base[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
}
class "GtkInvisible" style "ff"
widget "GtkInvisible" style "ff"

I don't use Thunderbird so not in a situation to code around it.

As for putting it on AUR, would be nice but I wouldn't even know where to begin.

I'm probably done making themes anyway. :-)
