A GNOME-Shell theme based on the ACID suite by ~sixsixfive

This theme is for GNOME 3.8.
Python is required for the colour changer.
The theme uses Cantarell as the font, so it is highly recommended that you have it installed.

Instructions:
First, extract the zip
, then copy the theme to ~/.themes
So, copy the "ACID" folder to "/home/username/.themes/ACID"

To use the colour changer, just click on the "ACID Configurator" icon, or run the python file (configurator.py) yourself.

Download the Metacity /Mutter theme here!

Could you update it for 3.14, please.

Or do you know a way to downgrade GNOME?

It probably has problems, since the theme was made for GNOME 3.8 and the current version is 3.14.

I think it might be a problem with the GNOME-Shell version. This theme hasn't been updated since GNOME 3.8, so it probably won't work with 3.10 or 3.12. Which version do you have?

Copy the theme folder to ~/.themes. Then install GNOME-Tweak-Tool and select it from there.

The zip file (downloaded from Deviant art) has no themes folder, this doesn't appear to be a gtk3 theme at all. I am running Linux Mint Cinnamon, but I don't see why that would matter to a gtk theme.

The folder where the theme is, i.e. "ACID". Also, this is a GNOME-Shell theme, not GTK, so it won't work in Cinnamon.

Glad you like it. The "windows and "programs" buttons were removed in GNOME 3.8, so they no longer are included in the new version. I have the old version on my computer, I can upload that somewhere for you if you want :)Glad you like it.
