This theme was previously known has 'Ice Cream Sandwich'.

An experimentation to mimic the new theme designed by Google for Android 4.0. It includes a Gnome-Shell theme, a GTK3 theme and some Metacity borders. A simple GTK2 theme is also provided.

GTK3 theme required Unico and Adwaita engines.
GTK2 theme required Murrine and Pixbuf engines.

I suggest to remove the globalmenu (Ubuntu users only) and move the window controls to the left of the titlebar.

Licence: GPLv3

Icons: Faience
Wallpaper: Architecture (I choose this one for a better contrast in my screenshots but you should prefer the default one: link)


* Gnome-Shell: the wide black message train is replaced by a smaller one in the right corner
* GTK3: wider buttons in toolbars
* GTK3: an ugly red background I used for debuggind (and forget) is removed
* GTK2: no more borders for scrollbars

Very creative software....
Yeah, would love to have this theme on ubuntu 13.04 but it is white and not compatibility

I like this theme very much, however it is missing versions for gnome 3.6 3.8 and 3.10
I create a github project to migrate to the different gnome versions, contributor are welcome to join on…

This theme is awesome (running on Openbox (Crunchbang)) however some applications have issues, while others are completely fine:

Please port it to 3.8!

I'm trying to use the Holo GTK2/3 and gnome-shell themes in Arch Linux, which is running Gnome 3.6. I've noticed a few things that look like problems to me: in gnome-terminal, the menubar appears to be styled incorrectly. Also, in gnome-tweak-tool, the on/off toggle switches appear to be styled incorrectly.

I'm happy to entertain the idea that I've done something wrong... but I don't know what. ;) Any thoughts?

Hi. I love the theme, thanks.
Just one thing: the gnome-shell.css is missing an entry for .dash-label

for me, this results in black text on black background on the hover labels of the dash icons

(like shown here:

I copied this from the Zukitwo theme and it seems to work:

.dash-label {
color: #FFFFFF;
border-radius: 2px;
padding: 4px 12px;
background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
text-align: center;
-x-offset: 8px;

I keep getting white text on white backgrounds, is there any way for me to change it? I've tried changing values in the settings.ini and gtk.css to no avail.
