Google Shell +Dark +3.2

I've been attracted to the new look of and all the web apps in their arsenal. So I figured it should make a pretty good looking gnome-shell theme. Hope you like it!

I included the switches from 0rAX0's Nord theme because they're just so easy on the eyes and I couldn't find any "switches" on google's apps.


Put the 'Google-Shell' folder inside ~/.themes and use a theme-selector extension to select it. OR, backup your /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme folder and replace everything inside it with this theme, press ALT+F2 and type 'rt' or 'r'

In case some of you don't like the orange in the message tray, here's a fix:

Replace lines 1214 & 1215 (1215 & 1216 for dark) with:

background-color: white;

in the gnome-shell.css file.

You also need \'Droid Sans\' or 'Open Sans' fonts.

*NEW* I've included a darker overview theme for darker tastes. Just backup the original files and overwrite with the dark files!
