On Arch Unico is showing up under the community feed in pacman at version 1.0.2-3. Just an FYI to people that don't want to play with aura/yaourt/etc.

I know that it must be frustrating as a theme developer to have the Gnome/GTK+ devs basically ignore you in terms of backwards compatibility, but, seriously, can we please please please have a fixed and updated version of the best GTK3 theme for Gnome 3.6?

Pleasepleasepleaseplease?

Using this in 12.04. Strangely, this theme works except for the font -- they are white in white BG. I can't read!

On Unity with 12.04, I'm getting white text on white background in Nautilus and various other software, such as Ubuntu-tweak.
This spoils the theme and renders it unusable.

Could you give us an update or tell us how to repair it ourselves?

Fixed it by changing nbg_color in /gtk-3/settings.ini - works everywhere but in the software center ;) But it seems not to recognize the font-color-settings...would be great if this gets fixed!

Can you give step-by-step fix? I can't understand. In my /usr/share/themes/Hope-DT/gtk-3.0/settings.ini, I see bg_color:#F2F1F0 (\nbg_color). But change it to what? :)
