Description:

** Shell theme for 3.36 now available **
Darcwaita gnome shell & gtk themes
The unholy marriage of my theming styles incorporated with that of Arc-Dark
( by Horst3180 & currently maintained by NicoHood )

The shell theme is built from the current version of Gnome 3.30 but has been interjected with bits from
the previous 2 versions as well so should be compatible with 3.26 & 3.28. Applying it with the user-theme
extension should make it at least 90% compatible for versions even older.
If you install the gnome-shell-theme.gresource file you will have the benefit of gdm login screen colored
in the Darcwaita colors ** BACKUP your current gnome-shell-theme.gresource file in case it fails to work
correctly ** If all else fails just reinstall gnome-shell using the package installer for your particular
distribution.

The Gtk3 is built from the current gtk+ version 3.24

The Gtk2 provided is the one from the Arc-Dark theme with a couple very minor modifications

(For non-Gnome shell users convenience the Gtk themes are available standalone, just extract and drop into
a folder named Darcwaita)

My philosophy towards theme customization is that the Gnome team provides the best and most up to date code
for a fast and reliable desktop, it merely lacks the color and style options that I find most appealing.

If you feel so inclined and you find any of these themes useful you could contribute to my Kraken Fund
but if that's not in the budget a + and a comment is appreciated as well.

This is really nice! I'm not big on totally dark themes, but this one does a great job. In Xfce,I'm unable to move the close, maximize and minimize buttons to the left. Also, text in Firefox to write in is almost impossible to read as it's a dark gray like the box itself. Otherwise, really nice!!!

Thanks. For the Firefox problem all I can do at the moment is suggest finding a Firefox theme/skin that addresses the problem. For the window buttons in xfce, open up the themerc file in the xfwm4 folder and comment this line out "button_layout=O|HMC". That should free them up so they can be repositioned.

Put in /usr/share/themes or .themes in your home folder.

I most still be doing something wrong because shouldn't it make my entire desktop look like yours and give me the right bar for my workspace? I have only made minor changes with application and shell. I rebooted but nothing. Am I supposed to select a file in shell?

15 Nov 2018 11 months ago

Shell theme:
A couple minor changes to stay current with 3.30.2

28 Oct 2018 2 years ago

Changed the optional icon theme.
To install place in ~/.icons or /usr/share/icons, the name of the folder should be Darcwaita.

23 Oct 2018 2 years ago

Corrected an oversight.
Can't believe no one brought to my attention the fact that checked checkboxes were invisible on menuitems until hovered.
Fixed!

21 Oct 2018 2 years ago

Removed some unnecessary entries in Gtk3
Fixed a typo in gtk-contained.dark.css
