Description:

NOTE:
======
Unfortunately, after years of Gnome3, even minor updates of GTK+ or Gnome-Shell break themes and waste hours of work.


GnomishDark is a clean dark theme for GTK3. It also contains a matching GTK2 theme, that depends on the latest Murrine and Pixmap engines.

*** Current Dependencies ***

GTK3 = 3.12.X (may not work with versions < 3.8)
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 https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/ubuntu-help/unity-scrollbars-intro.html

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) You won't need the source package unless you want to modify the theme or make a deb or an rpm package from it.

4) Light monochromic icons go well with this theme. I've made the gray version of nouveGnome for it: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/nouveGnome?content=125474

I registered just to let you know this is one of the best dark themes I've seen. I use it in Mint 12 with the Faenza F-Dark icon theme.

The only thing I see that I have to somehow fix is when signing in to Gmail and other services the text doesn't show in the username/password field unless I highlight it. Other than that small issue it's perfect...thanks!!

Thank you!

The problem you mentioned is browser-dependent and is related to the webpage combo issue I mentioned above. With Firefox, the case is exactly as you said. With Chromium, everything is OK. With Epiphany, another sort of problem might show up. I don't think there's a global solution for this problem, which appears with dark themes.

Thanks Tsujan your right, it only is a problem in Firefox and not that big of a deal anyway. I just know to highlight input fields so the text shows up when I'm typing. For such a great theme, that's a very minor issue. Thanks again for your great work!!

At last, I found a solution for the input field issue in Firefox. Create '~/.mozilla/firefox/.../chrome/userContent.css' with this in it:

input {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}

textarea {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}

I'll include this explanation in the main body of this page with the next update.

Great fix... Before, I couldn't use this comment box because the text was white. Now, if Thunderbird Lightning would only get its dark theme calendar widgets fixed. It's a bug, and has been one for quite some time... Pulls colors from wrong place.

Thunderbird and Lightning seem OK here. Firefox tricks (userChrome.css, for example) can be used for TB too.

I can work with the calendars, but they are dark text on a light background, when they should be light text on a dark background. Also, the small calendar in the side panel has some white text where it should be black (month, year, and widgets at the top).

Awesome!! Thanks for working that out so fast, I had just planned on dealing with it since I like the theme so much. Great work, I'll do that now!!

Really nicely done. FaenzaWolfe icons go great with theme.

Thanks. And yes, gray or dark icons match this theme better.

I did that but I had to create the css, and I see how it changes the menu bar.

I was wondering if you could make the gtk2 right click menu look the same as the gtk3 one, with the fade. Wasn't that possible with gtk2?

GTK3 theming potential is much more than that of GTK2. Perhaps one could give a png bg to GTK2 menus but that would require the old pixmap engine with its extra load. Anyway, GTK2 apps will be replaced by GTK3 ones sooner or later.

I agree about the blue. This is excellent work and I'm sure you can think of a way to implement a different color? For example, a medium green or yellow even?

Keep up the great work!

Let's be more specific. Do you mean the blue in progress bars and radio\check buttons? If people don't like them, I could use white and grey.

Yes, those, and white wouldn't be bad either :). Other than that this theme IS amazing, which were being specific, I specifically love the faded right click menus.

OK. I'll change them. I hope others will like that too. Thanks for your comment.

What happened to the dark theme? Now all I see is white, good thing I had a backup lol...

nvm I got it working again. Looks great!

Since you keep working on it maybe you want ideas? The older style right click menu you see in firefox could use improved, but I love this theme anyways :D

Here, Firefox's right click menus are like other GTK2 apps, i.e. white text on dark grey bg. I use '~/.mozilla/firefox/<SOME_CHARS>.default/chrome/userChrome.css' with this in it:

menubar{
color: white ! important;
}

nice work.
wish it didnt have the blue in it.
too many GTK3 themes with these funky blue colors.
I think it speaks volumes about the mindset the world is in..
all depressed and sad.. lol

All this blue feels too much like windows or mac.

Still, great work.
All these themes with blue in them though, prevent me from ever using them. :/

As a matter of fact, I made it without that blue first but it seemed a little dull to me. And blue isn't a sad color in all cultures ;) However, thanks for your comment.

I think I just discovered the theme to put on my Ubuntu installation.

Looks really nice.
