Are these borders intended to be here?
And why the checkboxes are not displayed?
All these issues appeared after upgrading to gtk+-3.14.

It doesn't support 3.14 yet. A port is in the works.

Hello! I've just got the light theme and here is a thing. Icons of network, ring and speaker are light so I can hardly recognize them on the light background of the top bar. I see that yours top bar on a screenshot above is black. What can I do with that?

Have you tried using the "Light" versions of our icon theme? They're provided with the base theme, Circle and Square :)

I just purchased this theme, because I like it. but the "gnome-tweak-tool" does not recognize it, and when I use the instructions for gnome above, the "window theme" does not get set? am I missing something?

Ubuntu 14.04.1
Gnome 3.10.1


I just upgraded to gnome 3.12.2 and it doesn't make any difference.

If you have it in ~/.themes, have a symlink to it under ~/.local/share/themes. Gnome no longer supports window themes under ~/.themes
