Is this package still maintained? The website is full of broken links and the mailbox isn't responding..

It doesn't seem to be :(.

I had to switch to github.com/andreisergiu98/arc-… - I still like numix the best, but I can't get access to the light theme any more as it isn't available for being bought (or downloaded when already bought) on any of their websites, and I like light themes much better than dark ones.

There seems to be no way to download this theme from this page, nor from the numix store. Is this still being actively maintained?

Does it work on gtk 3.16?

It works, but looks a little bit messy.

Theme in some applications such as Firefox, GIMP and LibreOffice looks like Windows 95. How do I fix it?

Upd: Fixed it by installing gtk2-engines-pixbuf and gtk2-engine-murrine.

Does this theme have the same flat look for the Unity bar as Numix Flat?

Thanks satya164 for all the great work. You mentioned that one could ask for a custom version, I'd love to have (and would be happy to pay for) the light theme with blue instead of red for the accent color. I'd be happy to change it myself if I knew how...

I think I figured out :).
mdnu's avatar
Actually, I almost got it (at least as far as I have checked) by replacing the instances of the red color by a custom blue one. But I'm having trouble with Firefox, which is still using the old red color when showing accented text (not in webpages but in some links in toolbars and stuff like that). Do you know how to fix that ?

Is it normal for the light theme to have some bugged elements on Unity top-bar? For instance the sound indicator menu does not have the play buttons visible at all with light theme (Icon theme is set to Numix light). Maybe I used the wrong Light version out of the three I downloaded here? My Ubuntu is 14.10 and I used the GTK3.14 version. Not sure which one to use as it's hard to distinguish my current version of GTK on this machine.

This is weird. Have you tried logging out and logging in back?

Yup, i even tried restarting my computer couple of times. Maybe i missed something while installing? Here is what i did:

1. After downloading the archive from here, I extracted the "Numix Light for GTK3.4.zip" 
2. And extracted the folder "Numix Light" from the "Numix Light for GTK3.4.zip" 
3. Copied the folder "Numix Light" to "usr/share/themes" directory.
4. Changed to Numix Light theme from Unity tweak tool.
