Since Gnome 3.14 you may have to use the default icon theme or an icon theme compatible with Gnome 3.14. There may be some issues with the theme if you for example use the Faenza icon theme or any other outdated theme that haven't been updated for Gnome 3.14.

This is one of the cleanest themes that I've ever seen. I've been able to peek into the wallpaper and into the icon separately, and I can say that the wallpaper despite colored in the "cold" part of the color spectrum... it feels kinda warm. It is really amazing how naturally the gradient flows, and makes the background really easy on the eye. The icons are also very simple, maybe some of them are a little too colorful for my taste, but that is OK. I don't use Linux so I guess I cannot comment on the compatibility part here. I can only tell you that I like what I see. Nice job!

Do you plan to update to Gnome 3.16?
lassekongo83's avatar
Eventually. No ETA yet as I have other priorities atm.

Beautiful. It's sad, I can't use Linux...

Can you update Zukiwi for GTK 3.14, please?
Thank you in advance! :)

Is it possible to get a Zukiwi version with Zukini color scheme?
There is a script to modify assets colors…
but I don't know how to match the GTK 3 color scheme.

Thank you in advance for your answer and have a nice day! :)

Really nice, even if I don't use gnome anymore I always appreciate the cool themes guys (like you) are making for this environment.
Keep up the great work mate :)

There are other things:

- Why is there only one color for the infobar (message, warning, question, error, other)?
- When I run "Multiple Views" (Text Widgets) through gtk3-demo, the application crashes. I don't know if it's due to the theme or a GTK 3.12 bug.

Thank you in advance for your answer! :)

1. The infobar uses the same colors as Adwaita. Haven't done any changes to it.
2. Can't reproduce that bug you have. Check the terminal output to see what's wrong.
Oups, I just saw your answer.

"ERROR:/build/buildd/gtk+3.0-3.12.1/./demos/gtk-demo/textview.c:140:insert_text: assertion failed: (pixbuf)
Abandon (core dumped)"

Many thanks for this theme, the best GTK 3's one, I think.

Please, is it possible to get rounded progressbars back?
Thank you in advance for your answer and have a nice day! :)

Very nice theme!
Is it possible to get an Openbox version to use it with LXDE?

Thank you in advance and have a nice day! :)
I just made a Zukitwo-OB mod.

Could you share the dock theme?

The heart icon is missing?

Tack! :D Jag lyckades slarva bort mitt hjärta som jag hade sedan tidigare.

Great theme! Nice to have one with 3.8 compatibility finally ;)

It seems to have some issues with 3.8's evince though:
1. gear-button sizing incorrect when opening evince (blank, not through file manager): [link]
2. textbox for site number is drawn beyond its border horizontally: [link]

I'm not having those 2 issues with other GTK3 themes (i.e. Adwaita, Greybird).

Ok.. Marlin work with GT3 themes without any problems.
But not with Zukiwi: [link]
With Zukiwi theme becomes unusable. :(
