Amazing job ! It works perfectly on Gnome-shell 3.14 but there is a little bug on 3.16 version, in the top bar the graphism of loading cursor becomes corrupt, I hope some updates...  Thx for this job.

There is no custom icon for roxterm. Could you add a link from utilities-terminal to roxterm? I really love the theme.

Hi,

Very nice theme. Is there a way for you to fix the blurry switch buttons (on - off)?
I am using it on Ubuntu 14.04.1

Is there anyway to get this working on gnome 3.12?

I have this one issue in nautilus with the buttons not rendering correctly: i.imgur.com/VjAIWuW.png

Bug on Ubuntu-Gnome 14.04.1:
- Start evince
- Click cog icon to open preferences

Result: Background of pop-down menu is black, menu is difficult to read.
Expected: Menu background should be white, as for the same action in nautilus.

Also, the background color of all editors should be ffffff for better contrast.

Where are the download links on these pages? I would have thought you Ubuntu folks would be above the jiggery pokery of tricking people into downloading something else. Shame on you.

That is how you download it. Ubuntu uses the PPA system and apt-get to install programs.
