Hi Satya, first thanks a lot for the effort and commitment you put in your work both in The Shimmer Project and on the Numix one, I've been using Numix Gtk Theme and Numix Circle for a lon time, but with the first one and LO there is a problem with radio buttons/check boxes with do not appear until you hover the cursor over them, (I will post the link to the images for better understanding) also mention that this also happens with Bluebird, Greybird, Orion but not with Adwaita. Hope you can check it out

Hey could you report this on our repo? It would be great…
Sure, it is done.
Hi satya164 :D

Your Numix theme is great and I love it :P But I have a little problem. In gedit, on bar with tabs I have black background and I don't know why :/
What is interesting is that when I run gedit with sudo, background is gray as it should be :) I hope you can help me :)

Hi. This is a bug with overlay scrollbars. If you disable overlay scrollbars, they will disappear.
etercode, as far as I know, Numix theme was not created to be used with overlay scrollbars. If you disable the overlay scrollbars, this issue in Gedit disappears and everything gets normal again. To do so, install Unity Tweak Tool, go to Scrolling and, under Scrollbars, check Legacy. Now, if you really want use overlay scrollbars, I guess you'll have to get used to that issue, unfortunately. I hope this helps.

Or maybe satya164 has a solution, I don't know. :)


Thanks for help brunces! :) 

I don't have to use overlay scrollbars so this solution satisfies me a lot :)
Yup, etercode. I don't use overlay scrollbars either. I don't like them. You're welcome. :)
Great work mate. 
I am going to try this theme out :)
Keep it up
