Package contains 8 versions of gtk3,gtk2,metacity,unity,xfwm4 and openbox theme.
To install themes, extract archive to /usr/share/themes. Gtk3 theme is for 3.10 version.

Requirements for gtk3 theme is only gnome-themes-standard package.
Requirements for gtk2 theme is murrine and pixbuf engines.

Gtk3 theme has customizable color.You can setup any color you want,just open file settings.ini and change value of 'selected_bg_color'.
IMPORTANT: Theme must be in /usr/share/themes in order to work color customization.

If you use mostly gtk applications you can use Flattastic themes. If you use a lot qt application it is recommended to use Flatastic-Light themes,because Flatastic theme has text color problems with qt applications. It is unsolvable. If you have some problems with Flatastic themes and gtk apps just send a bug report here,and I will try to fix it(do not send for qt apps).

Theme is inspired by beautiful work of vladedimovski

If anyone has experience with CSS, they should upgrade the GTK3 theme to work with 3.20

Hey, really nice theme.
The colors scheme is so sober and FLAT! yeah
But I think that there are some bug. I am using it on XFCE4 and Debian. The label for unchecked checkbox is visible while that of checked one is not. Here there is no background color for a text input field.
Can you please Help me with this.

How can we contribute to this theme? I have added transparent background for Unity Launcher Icons making it more flat and minimalist

Is it just me, or is the title bar on epiphany off-center?

For anyone having the Chrome issue where the menu items (both bookmark bar and right-click menu items) are showing up white upon mouse hover, here is the fix (and if the author would be so kind as to update his themes and make sure they get into the ubuntu upstream for the ppa, that would be wonderful):

1) user@host:~$ sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Flattastic-<theme here>/gtk-2.0/styles/menu-menubar

2) At the very bottom, add the following code:

    style "chrome_menu_item"
           bg[SELECTED] = @selected_bg_color

    widget_class "*<GtkCustomMenu>*<GtkCustomMenuItem>*" style "chrome_menu_item"

3) Save the file

4) user@host:~$ killall chrome

5) Restart Chrome and it should be fixed.

AnAshChosen Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014
Hey Nale, great theme, just one problem though, the window close, minimze, and maximize buttons in inactive windows are a bit messy looking on Ubuntu 14.04. Would really appreciate a fix.

hey, what icon pack you're using? 
template Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
If you are using this on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr ***with Unity***, then don't waste your time like I did with trying to align the "close, minimize, maximize" window controls to the top right of the window. From 14.04 it is not possible anymore by design.
asantewaaphillic Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014  Student General Artist
Hi! I'm trying to change the colors and one of two things happens, it either gets rid of the flat look or it doesn't change at all. Beautiful theme!
Neftas Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2014
Another bug: Midori 5.8: when you type text in the address bar, the menu that pops up is illegible. I'm using Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 by the way, Flattastic Light.
i8run Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014
Nice work.

And there is a problem with chrome/chromium menu bar or popup menu. The item selected is white on my xfce4.10. I modify gtk-2.0/styles/menu-menubar bg[SELECTED] in style "menuitem" to bg_color. And it's work for me.

Thk your work. Sorry my english, i'm Chinese.
Neftas Featured By Owner Edited Aug 16, 2014
That's sort of the same as the quick-and-dirty fix they suggested.

You better change

bg[SELECTED]    = @selected_bg_color


bg[SELECTED]    = @selected_fg_color
But like they say in the link, this will break LibreOffice menus though. So it depends what you use more often: Chrom(e|ium) or LibreOffice.

On Ubuntu Gnome 14.04, when you full-screen Nautilus or Gnome Tweaks (and possibly other applications that use header bars), the top of the header bar will lose its color and instead become black and lose its roundings. 
Neftas Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014
Is there a github or something where we can file bug reports?
jpmacedosilva Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2014
Great work.

I'd like to recommenced 2 improvements:

1 - A way to customize the fonts in Xfce panel
2 - As this is a theme with light colors, Firefox buttons (back, forward, bookmarks, home, etc.) should be dark, and not white as they are right now.

Best regards.

Copy the theme to /usr/share/themes. You can apply the theme from elementary tweaks.
Neftas Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014
Also, I have the same problem as gz43 in Chrome: select an entry in a menu and all you get is white on white, and thus the text becomes illegible. I know there was a same sort of issue with the Adwaita theme with a quick and dirty fix here:…
