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?

logswithmoss Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012
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?

usr/share/themes

Running 11.10 with little changed other than some compiz settings.

Here's a photo of what I see when I open Software Center and view a package: [link]

Hey remove it from /usr/share/theme and copy it to your home folder .themes Create .themes if you don't have it. I bet you that will fix the problem. I have the same problem when I run it from /usr/share/themes ;)

I put it in .themes, restarted my computer and selected your theme again in gnome tweak. It changed a lot, but not exactly for the better:

log out again and back in In gnome you can just restart the shell by hitting alt-f2 the type r and it reloads the shell.

Wow thanks man!

I appreciate that. Yeah I noticed that problem if you have it copied to /usr/share/themes. I've been trying to figure that out, I added a greyish font when the greenish highlight is on the selection and it looks good when it's in my .themes folder. Have you tried my grey gtk theme? It's this one just with grey instead of the greenish. Try that and let me know that will help me track it down.

Possibly this is my first at tweaking a gtk theme. It's a lot of work but so is creating the gnome shell theme so keep your eyes open I may LOL!!! :D

Umm...I can't really copy the icon theme. You can download the Awoken Icon theme from here [link] and follow his directions it's pretty easy. When you have it installed then you can enter the CMY settings I have listed on the theme page (the icon theme is pretty awesome as you can change the colors to pretty much anything).

I already have awoken icons since Natty but I just like yours because it's modified in order to match with your theme. It's really awesome looking Man...

No I used this theme [link] and just changed the highlight color. He already had a great theme and I thought it looked great with my gnome shell theme and this wallpaper [link] I never done a gtk theme before just used other peoples awesome work and changed the colors to match my themes. I might release it if it ok with the OG author and thank you it does match really well I think.

Yeah, even just doing modifications to an existing gtk is a lot more challenging than a shell theme IMO. Really made me appreciate the themes that accompany releases and some of the really good ones available.

If you have the patience & the head for it, keep it up. :)

Boy ain't that the truth. There are a lot of settings and things you can screw up. I've learned to always save...reload...undo and save again LOL!! We will see this took alot more time but of course so did my first gnome shell theme and now I have that down LOL!! Thanks for the comment I appreciate it. The best thing about doing this is communicating with all you guys. we all have the same interest :D

Did you change that light theme to this dark theme or it's another?? very nice!! There isn't any excellent dark gtk3 yet, you should do something... This look nice in nautilus, i don't know about the other applications, but it's really beautiful.
