Sable-3.12 09.03252015



Sable and SableNC are carbon and black tone themes for Gnome 3.12.  It includes Sable a multi-accented theme.  And SableNC a gray scale theme.
You will likely need to adjust your monitors contrast till most of the theme appears as tones of black, only the buttons should appear as a dark shade of gray.
Sable uses a carbon and black base with copper and turquoise accents.
SableNC uses carbon and black base with gray.
Icons are Flattr by DevianTN7k1
Please report Bugs!

Ubuntu Unity This theme doesn't work well in Unity due to Ubuntu's patched gtk3 and its use of a much older version of Nautilus.  I do not know how well it will work in 14.10.  But it works well in Ubuntu with Gnome-Shell. FIXED

As always your comments are encouraged.  Thanks killhellokitty!
