Luna Version


Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes.

GNOME Tweak Tool

Make sure you have user-theme-extension installed. Load the GNOME Tweak Tool and go to Shell Extensions and click the "Use Theme Extension" switch. Now go to "Theme" and click the Shell Theme box and locate your theme zip. Now you can select the theme in the dropdown box. Make sure you selection the right version for the GNOME version you have, otherwise the theme will not show properly.

If you run GNOME 3.4, just extract the 3.4 version to ~/.themes

Love this theme, absolutely a masterpiece! I'm trying to set this as my GDM3 theme, however it appears to be missing gdm.css. Would you have any plans to add this?

No more GNOME 3 for me, sorry.

It's because I'm not using the arrow popup with the light versionm since you cannot do shadows on the arrow popup.

Nice theme!

Is it just me or is the highlight on apps missing if you open the overview, type in the name of an application and start navigating through the results using the arrow keys?
half-left's avatar
Thanks. Not sure, I'll have to look into that.
M4he's avatar

I have suggestion, could you make more strong font for the shell. pliss :D

Glad you like it. :)

You can do it yourself, just change the font in the gnome-shell.css at the top, stage { font-family:
yo-bhan's avatar
