Dark-Grey-n-Gold GTK Updated by CraazyT Dark-Grey-n-Gold GTK Updated by CraazyT
Updated 3/14/2012: Completely re-done and I changed the name from Brown n Gold (it wasn't ever really brown ;) to Dark-Grey-n-Gold. I changed the highlights to actually be more in gold color instead of yellow. This was one of my first themes to tweak and now that I know a little more about tweaking themes I will be re-doing my older themes when time allows ;)

Update 3/12/2012:Thanks to nowerries for telling me how to fix Ubuntu Software Center. I'm trying to figure out a way to apply this fix to my dark themes but until then use this fix.

**********Bugs***********

Only bug I have noticed so far is fonts unreadable in Ubunut Software Center the fix for this is to in terminal type...

sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css

.... and change the color value of @define-color super-light-aubergine to #363636.

Updated 1/19/2010: Fixed Evolution not displaying html messages correctly. Also changed the name it is more of a brown then black and more gold then green LOL!!

Update: 1/16/2012: Okay people I added Unity support for this but you will have to try it out and let me know cause I do no t run Unity. What I did is add greenish font color. But I think it just adds that color to the panel.

My friend mmesantos1Thanks buddy ;) and I researched the problem with evolution displaying html messages with white background and white fonts have determined that it is a bug with evolution and has been there for a long time. I switched to using thunderbird for email and use evolution for my calendar. Just because thunderbird does not have this problem and evolution integration with the gnome shell just is so sweet.


I have question for anyone that has made gtk themes before. I use evolution as my email and noticed with this dark theme the incoming messages that are html I can't read because the background is white . Where in the heck can I change that it's buggin the hell outta me? Thanks in advance ;)

Update: I pretty much finished this gtk theme..It's my first at reallly tweaking. The other ones I just basically just changed the selection color. This one I blended Radiamentary by ~NanaBuluku [link] with BleuFear for GTK [link] Thank you to the both of these authors. So if you find any problems with this let me know and I will try to figure it out. It might take me some time :D

I just changed the font in the highlighted area to use the same dark brown of the theme. I think it looks slick might have to keep these themes on my computer for a while LOL Yeah Right!! LOL!! I keep coming up with ideas LOL!!

I'm messing around with this theme to see if i can get the greenish yellow a little more milder. I think it matches pretty well though...What do you guys think? I also removed the border around the windows I love the no border look :P

Thank you to the original creator here is the original theme [link]

This is the only theme I've been able to stick with, just want you to know I love everything about it man.

Except: The Yellow/Greenish color has no contrast with white, and that's what I often see. Here's a picture to show you an example

Is there anything I can do about it?

logswithmoss,

Can you try this new version and let me know I seen you are using unity right?

Aye, I'm using Unity and I tried your new version. The only difference I noticed is the top bar's text changed from white to green, and now looks like your photo (with the exception of all the icons in that top bar, those are still white while yours are green). Unfortunately, it didn't fix the problem of white text on the greenish-yellow highlight background as shown in my first picture.

Okay well that worked the way I thought it would. You will need to install awoken Icon set [link] if you want to have the same color icons that i do. Where are you copying this theme to?
