Update 3/16/2012: Used my Back-nBlack-GTK Overhauled theme as a base for this but changed all the grey to blue. Also Changed the name.

Update 3/12/2012:Thanks to nowerries for telling me how to fix Ubuntu Software Center. I'm trying to figure out a way to apply this fix to my dark themes but until then use this fix.

**********Bugs***********

Only bug I have noticed so far is fonts unreadable in Ubunut Software Center the fix for this is to in terminal type...

sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css

.... and change the color value of @define-color super-light-aubergine to #000000

Updated 1/25/2012 V2: I fixed the problem when copying the theme to /usr/share/themes it all looks good now. I uploaded the changes :D

Updated 1/21/2010: I changed the progress bar to have more of a radius. Fixed the selected check boxes to have a blue border (so you can see where to put the check in them).


Updated 1/19/2012: I am releasing this, I figured out the evolution html issue I was having. I am going to update the rest of my dark gtk themes with the fix. I have to give a big thank you to rvc-2011 [link] for pointing me in the right direction to fix it thanks buddy ;)

Okay this is just the Back n Black GTK theme. I just changed the grey to blue to match the wallpaper. I think it looks pretty slick. Would do you think?

Really nice but one visibility problem:  when you have Nautilus / Nemo running and you select multiple files, all of them except one are white text on blue background which is hard to see.  They all need to be black text on blue background.  Otyher than that, it looks great!

Hi craazyt it's possible for you to modify this theme by changing the black color with white color (#ffffff) and blues color with black color (#000000)? Thanks
CraazyT's avatar
It's not possible as I don't use gtk anymore only kde and I've been extremely busy with work. Feel free to change it yourself ;)

black duo rocks buddy ! gr8 job ! if you can try to create a matching shell / cinnamon theme to suit your gtk... it ll become a complete suite !
CraazyT's avatar
Thank you so much that means a lot cause I know you know how much time theses take ;) I have this gnome shell theme I was thinking of tweaking more. I don't use cinnamon how hard is it to add that to an existing theme?

its easy ...

1.sudo add-apt-repository ppa:merlwiz79/cinnamon-ppa
2.sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cinnamon cinnamon-session cinnamon-settings cinnamon-settings-weather.
thats it !

i havent used arch so i gave a terminal command for deb based distro...
try it and its much user friendly, i use auto hide panel and desktop is as clean as ever ! hover the mouse and you get your panel !

well i explored this just to see how to create compatibility to users and i kept it !

alternatively you can dig into any of my cinnamon compatible theme to tweak the css...

Loks great with the blue CraazyT. You run arch, I need to to help me learn how to install Arch, I have been wanting to try that OS for some time now, just lack the knowledge to get it done. ;-)

Thanks Buddy ;-)

Yes I do run Arch and have been for a long time. It's pretty easy to install and the thing I like about it is you are in control of what is on it. I'm running ArchBang (which is Arch with OpenBox on it) on my laptop in this screenshot. Because I need it up pretty quick I just installed Gnome after ArchBang was installed. ArchBang had my wireless already setup that is why I did it. Usually I just go for the Arch install but like how minimal ArchBang is. Thy have excellent documentation follow their wiki and you'll have it setup in no time. The best thing about Arch is it's a rolling release (meaning you don't have to worry about upgrades) your always on the latest versions off apps. If you need help let me know ;)
