INSTALLATION



ROOT THEME INSTALATION
  • Method 1
  • Step 1 create symlinks in /root.themes to the global(/usr/share/themes).  Make /root/.themes folder if it doesn't already exist:
    sudo mkdir /root/.themes
    sudo ln -s -t /root/.themes /usr/share/themes/*
  • Step 2 Rename the theme in /root/.themes to exactly the same name as the one from ~/.themes that you're currently using.
  • Method 2
  • Instead of placing the theme in /usr/share/themes, simply place the root theme in /root/.themes, and the themes in ~/.themes.  Then follow Step 2.

Changing Title Bars to Metalic finish
  • Inside the DeLorean-Dark-Unity-3.18 theme folder locate the gtk-3.0 folder and open, next in your favorite text editor open 'gtk-contained.css'.
  • Go to line #8817 and uncomment(remove */, and trailing /*) do the same on line # 8834.  This will overide the glass title bars and replace them with the metalic.
  • Save your changes and reload the theme for the changes to take effect.

  • For Root theme open the DeLorean-Dark-Unity-3.18 theme folder, locate the Root folder(if you have installed the root theme to /root/.themes then start from there) and open, next open the DeLorean-Dark-Unity-3.18 folder and in your favorite text-editor open 'gtk-contained.css'
  • Go to line #8817 and uncomment(remove */, and trailing /*) do the same on line # 8834.  This will overide the glass title bars and replace them with the metalic.
  • Save your changes and reload the theme for the changes to take effect.


Ubuntu Software-Center
  • Backup the original folder and name it 'software-center-backup'
  • sudo cp -a /usr/share/software-center /usr/share/software-center.backup
  • Install This assumes that the delorean-dark-unity-3.18is installed to /usr/share/themes:
  • sudo cp /usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-unity-3.18/ubuntu-software-center/softwarecenter.css /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css && sudo cp /usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-unity-3.18/ubuntu-software-center/stipple.png /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/art/stipple.png
  • Start/Restart software-center
  • To Revert Changes
  • sudo rm -r /usr/share/software-center && mv /usr/share/software-center.backup /usr/share/software-center


Chromium Theme
  • The Chrome theme is located within the theme folders.
  • Simply drag-n-drop the Delorean-Dark-3.18.crx file onto Chromium to install the theme. (You will find this necessary when using this theme).


Firefox Theme
  • This is a patch to make Firefox blend with DeLorean.
  • Copy(or symlink) the 'chrome' folder located within the theme folders, to '~/mozilla/firefox/xSomeNumbers.default.
  • Restart Firefox for the changes to take effect.  This depends on the DeLorean-Dark-3.18 theme being in use!

Tested on Ubuntu 15.10 Unity 7.3 with GTK 3.16. Delorean Dark's one of my favourite dark themes since Ubuntu 12.04LTS with GTK 3.4. So, as a longtime user I'd say the theme has improved a lot while still retaining the dark brushed metal look and feel! Love Compared to Candra (Unity version), the launcher icon glows are now fixed! However, the Force Quit Dialog's close buttons still have broken symlinks. And about the window decorations, their transparent glassy look doesn't seem to match the rest of the brushed metal theme.

Since Ubuntu Software Center fixed the dark theme bug in Ubuntu 15.10 and added support for Adwaita Dark, I think it doesn't need to be separately themed. Anyway, since Ubuntu 16.04LTS's dropped Software Center for Gnome Software it doesn't really matter!:happy:
