GTK2 Themes by ikisham 4 comments

Works in Gnome 3.8, with some problems:

* Window title is light instead of dark.
* Some widgets are not too beautiful (for example, tabs at file manager).

To solve those problems, I'm using the standard Adwaita theme, with the "Enable dark theme for all applications" option enabled. Now, the window title is ok, and all widgets are ok. But a new problem appears: Pure gtk apps (such as gvim) are using the standard light theme, instead of a dark theme. The cause is probably that there is only one "gtkrc" file, instead of a "gtkrc" and a "gtkrc_dark" one.

To solve it, I have copied the "gtkrc" file from "Adwaita-Dark" theme to a personal copy (at ~/.themes/) of the standard Adwaita theme, overwritting the original "gtkrc". The result: Now, pure gtk apps are shown with dark theme too (same as gnome apps). Everything is fine, except one thing: The window title of pure gtk apps is light instead of dark. (the window title of gnome apps is ok)

How can I make the window title of pure gtk apps to be dark? Perhaps by adding some extra line to gtkrc?
