I'm a bit lost on how a theme works. This looks fantastic, but how is one to use it?

My current theme. But gtk-3.0 apps don't show correctly for me - checkboxes show as blue squares and text is shown on oddly colored boxes instead. Not sure what caused this as I had installed murrine engines and other dependencies.

Currently using openbox plus tint2 and comptonon Fedora 18

This looks awesome! It's a darn shame that Windows doesn't have software that looks like this. If it did, I'd get it in a heart beat.

We'll be moving to GTK+ 3.6 in the next version of elementary after Luna (and that's when the theme will move as well).

o_O How do you get the menubar to look so awesomeness? Am I missing a package? My back and forward buttons are on the far right and not nearly as aesthetically pleasing. I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.1 32bit running I believe nautilus. I'm not sure what other details to provide, I just want my filebrowser to look like that!

It's not Nautilus or Ubuntu or GNOME. I'm running elementary OS.

No, this is Luna. The latest version of the theme doesn't work on Jupiter.

Great theme !

A tiny request for the scrollbar: would it be possible to make the rightmost pixel clickable?

Use case: open Firefox in fullscreen, put your mouse on the mostright pixel of the screen (which is very "direct"), left-click or middle-click: it does not work. You have to move your mouse 1 pixel on the left (it takes a lot of time for human to do this task).

I love the gtk theme, but there's two things that keep me away from using the icon theme. It's the folder icons, the white in the folder icons doesn't separate them well enough from the background. I'd say even using a similar green as the one used in the arrows in place of the white part in the icons would be better. Also the special folders would probably look better if they were differentiated with engravings on the folder rather than the extra stuff. It just seems simpler/more elementary. That's just my two cents and I love here noted that I love everything else in your work. It's really amazing and I use pantheon shell as my main desktop shell. Would even love to contribute, specially to the gala compositor, I love Tom Beckmann's work on it.

Since DanRabbit refuses to share the wallpaper with us, I went out on a quest to find it! And with a shitload of luck I actually found it: [link] :D
