CAMEO-ALU-Dark

This is the a dark Cameo theme with aluminium headerbars.
It has all the benefits of my Gnome-Prof-theme (better scaling and better font-rendering)

3 versions available:

- Cameo-Alu-Dark with a matching gnome-shell theme.
- Cameo-Alu-Dark with a blue selected color and matching shell-theme
- Cameo-Alu-Night, an easy-to-the-eyes theme for working in a dark environment.

Now with support for Dark-Mode and adapted to work with 4K.
Now also support for GTK2.

How to install:

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory, or better copy to /usr/share/themes for system-wide use.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take effect !

Limitations:

This is only works in the gnome-desktop.

Almost perfect. I wish you could make a version with the selected item highlighted in green or blue (instead of black).

Dark themes are relevant in the evening and at night (I like to work at night ...), and rest my eyes.
When they match their light counterpart, it is happiness.
This is why I like your themes, and also because they are harmonious.
I'm modifying them to make them more like what I would like them to be.

You should know that I spend an obscene amount of time on finding the right colors.

Yes, I know. Several years ago, I was creating GTK2 themes ... I spent a lot of time there ...

In the gnome-shell theme, I think a black highlight would have been better than a gray one. It's my opinion ...

I have tried black. But is very difficult to distinguish between the rest of the UI

Do you expect a light variant too, Paul?
I thought you didn't like dark themes. :)
Thanks!

I do not really like dark themes. They may look great, but I can not stand them for long. To much strain on my eyes.

But, you know, for this moment, dark themes are 'the new norm' . So I give them what they want. But I do not use them myself...

Looking trough your comments I guess you're a theme hopper. Never wanted to make one yourself?

Thanks so much for adding the gtk2 support! It makes qt5 apps look good too, with the older and more reliable QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 method. This is a really massive improvement, and it really helps, so thanks again! I still really love the contrasts within the dark greys of this theme, and the unusual lighter title bars. Aesthetically it's really pleasing overall, somehow. Please can you add a keyboard focus highlight for buttons? This is really important for accessibility! The Skeu and Menta themes look good at this, and even Adwaita gets the job done in a basic but ugly way. If you can navigate gtk3-widget-factory without the mouse, you're on the right track! The background color for highlighted text is too close to the text entry background color where there isn't any text. It makes highlighting text hard with the mouse. Quickest example I can think of is in Nautilus, and pressing Ctrl+L to enter a location manually. It highlights the current path for you, but you don't necessarily see that with this theme as of 1.5 / 1.5.1 even the blue-highlight variant. It'd be OK to reduce text contrast in the highlighted area I think, and lighten the highlight's background color so it's distinct?
