Nice... Thanks... I am always trying to find nice black colors for my *nixes... Seems people like to get blinded while they work. These are great!

Se ve muy hermoso, lamentablemente no es del todo compatible con Cinnamon :c
Seems broken on Debian Testing :( (MATE 1.16.1)

This is awkward but where exactly is the download link?

I've been using this excellent theme for a few years now and never looked back. Today I updated to Linux Mint 18. Unfortunately, there are some issues now. No borders for checkboxes and radio buttons, for instance. And overlapping areas in scroll containers. It would be extremely great if you could provide an update.

He used different icon themes. "nouveGnomeGray" and "ACYL" IIRC.

Man, please update this theme to work with latest gtk3. I think it's the only good looking dark theme...

I've checked - it's really the only good, flat colored dark theme.  I second this request for an updated version.

Me too, great theme, but doesn't really work anymore on newer GTK versions.

Love this theme! Just one question: what font did you use for your system in the screenshot? I would really like to use it. :)
TheCrimso's avatar
That's Google Play.

Very nice theme! What is the license? Can I make and share themes using yours as the base?

Can you add more colors? I would like to have brown, both light and dark, please :)
I really love your work, amazing job - use it since I use Linux :D

I created an account just to thank you.
I've been using this theme for 2+ years, and I still love it. A LOT.
It's beautiful, it's perfect. The best theme I've ever seen!
Thank you for doing it :)

Seems this theme need some updates on XFCE, gtk3 doesn't always display correctly, and bounce effects on lists are not managed.

I really like your theme, but I cannont distinguish the selected button when I select buttons in a message box using the tab keys to get around. I use the keyboard more than the mouse, so for me this is a deal-breaker. I'll probably try to dig around in the source later for how to edit this myself, but I thought I should let you know.

The only thing that is nagging me about this theme is that some buttons doesn't turn dark (For instance Pidgin), Is their something I'm missing?
abeldantas's avatar
