*** Current Dependencies ***
GTK3 = 3.12.X (works with 3.10 too)
gtk2-engines-murrine >= 0.98.1.1 (for GTK2)
gtk2-engines-pixbuf >= 2.24.10 (for GTK2)
Metacity >= 2.34 (for GTK2)
*** Notes ***
1) Ubuntu users could disable "overlay-scrollbar" if they want to have the original scrollbars of the theme. See help.ubuntu.com/12.10/ubuntu-h…
2) Don't forget to take a look at the file "README" in the theme folder. It contains useful tips for LibreOffice, Firefox, Epiphany, etc.
3) Light monochromic icons go well with this theme. I've made the gray version of nouveGnome tsujan.deviantart.com/art/nouv… for it.
Mar 4 2014
Added a matching Unity theme for Ubuntu Trusty.
Apr 14 2014
Updated for GTK+-3.12 (still works with 3.10).
May 9 2014
Added support for Gnome's client side decorations.
(I run arch with openbox)
It's a long time that I've migrated to Qt environments (KDE and LXQt) and developed Kvantum for Qt. I've added two themes to Kvantum (KvDark and KvDarkRed), which are very similar to GnomishDark but more elegant. Since the theme engine (Kvantum) is mine, no one could break them and, after all, unlike Gnome devs, Qt devs respect backward compatibility as far as possible. Some Linux users don't know that gtk3 isn't essential at all. Right now, I have only 2 gtk3 apps, which I could easily replace by Qt or gtk2 ones (but I saw no reason for that).
I took a look at the source of gtk-3.20. Gnome3 devs have never respected backward compatibility or the needs of GTK3 users. Instead of fixing old bugs, they create new ones, which they call "features". This time, they made so many senseless changes that any effort for updating this theme seems absurd to me. I don't say it's impossible but it would waste hours of my free time for nothing!
I suggest you get rid of gtk3 apps as far as possible and use the default Adwaita theme for the remaining ones. If you insist on having several gtk3 apps and you're in a Qt DE (KDE or LXQt), you could choose KvGnome or KvGnomeDark from Kvantum to have a uniform look for all gtk2, gtk3, Qt4 or Qt5 apps. (for a dark Adwaita-like gtk2 theme, see gnome-look.org/content/show.ph…).
If you use Enlightenment, my only suggestion is replacing gtk3 apps with Qt ones and using the default Kvantum theme, which is similar to the default E theme. For gtk2, install the gtk2 part of gnome-look.org/content/show.ph… .
You wouldn't need to download any theme; just install Kvantum (by compiling it from GitHub or by installing the deb or arch packages from kde-look.org) and several themes will be available for use. Run "Kvantum Manager" for more info!
I've noticed that the May 9 version turns text on tooltips in Chrome white, while leaving their background yellow, making them unreadable.
Unfortunately Chrome themes don't seem to touch the tooltip colours
I hope and encourage you to release fixes for gnome 3.10 soon.
(Yesterday I updated to Gnome 3.10 and the shell-theme in particular is not behaving as it should).
I just changed the grey/blue (#3b3b3e) in #3F3F3F and I adopted it. Thanks.
I don't use Gnome3, never tested moreover.
BTW, GnomishDark is still for Gnome-3.6 and NOT 3.8. I've modified it for 3.8 but will upload it only after Gnome-3.8 comes in Debian Unstable (for more testing).
The only glitch I have run into is facebook [COMMENT] boxes using firefox browser - white text on white background The [PEOPLE SEARCH] input field is normal dark text on white background.
[SOLVED] Installed Firefox add-on F.B. PURITY and changed the text color to a dark blue
No such problem with the chromium browser.
Anybody have a lead/hint on the fix for this ?
BTW, I have no intention to update GnomishDark for GTK-3.14. Changes in GTK3 are so illogical and whimsical that I find no reason to follow them anymore. So, the later versions of GTK3 will break GnomishDark soon and you might have to return to the default theme. Its GTK2 part will work though.
The only GTK3-GTK2 theme that I'll continue to update is E17gtk ( gnome-look.org/content/show.ph… ) because of its use under Enlightenment.
With all the dependencies, the theme should be OK as in the screenshot. However, you could try it without gnome-shell and in Unity, for example, and tell me if it's OK or not.
The theme is for v3.4 for now and shouldn't work with v3.5. I'll update it for v3.6 as soon as it comes into Debian experimental.
BTW, two Ubuntu users have reported that with GnomishGray (and NOT with GnomishDark), treeviews -- save-as or open-file dialogs, for example -- are black in Ubuntu. Do you see such a thing too? I mean with Gnome components v3.4.
I was unable to reproduce the black dialogs in 3.5. However, the background behind the text on most of the buttons and menu items are a flat light/dark gray rectangle instead of a matching gradient. I look forward to seeing version compatible with 3.5/3.6.
The issues you see with v3.5 are because GTK+-3.6 will have more theme variables, which don't exist in v3.4. Please wait until the stable v3.6 comes out. It might take a little more time for it to appear in Debian than in Ubuntu.
So, you don't have to create any "personal folder". At most, you create "chrome" inside your Mozilla settings folder to put "userContent.css" into it.
I'll make those icons for nouveGnomeGray soon.
BTW, icon sets are never finished There's always room for additions and modifications.
