Yup. But as I said, it cannot be fixed inside the theme. Also, I don't even maintain the theme anymore.

Hi. I'm using this theme and I'm trying to edit the wingpanel transparency/color. How do I do that. Thanks.

You need to add a class .panel and set a rgba color as background.

HI. I already added .panel to the gtk-widgets file, but it doesn't change the background-color for some reason.   The panel will only change if I change  @define-color bg_color  in the gtk file but that setting also changes the background color of other things.  I just want to change the panel and not mess with anything else. For some reason @define-color bg color in the gtk file overrides my .panel settings.  Is there a fix? Thanks.

Hmm...

Try .panel .menubar

I don't maintain the theme anymore... And I don't have GTK3.4 to test. So cannot help much. Sorry :(

That worked. I'm using elementary os btw . I made the .panel .menubar transparent  and than made the base color, bg color, tool tip color, and selected color in the gtk file semi-transparent using alpha (#color, 0.7);.  Thanks.

This theme does not work completely  for ubuntu 13.04.
Doesn't it updated longer? that reason?
This theme have been the top favorite for me since ubuntu 11.04.
That solid color bring it to so beautiful flat look.
I love that color. dark colors assist me for a working and take care of eyes . it even consume low power.
I have found some dark themes such Dorian, Delorean, Adwaita dark, Elementary Luna, Salience
but not for me. Futura theme is good for me but not dark.
I hope the activity of this theme being continues and forever.

The original elementary theme is being updated for new Gnome versions. A dark version may come after that.

Sorry, but I won't maintain this theme anymore... Ubuntu Software Center uses custom css, hence it's not possible to fix every issue with it.

Okay, I done it. I modified softwarecenter.css in /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css.

This has been my all time favorite theme ever since I found it a couple months back.

Unfortunately, GTK 3.6, the latest stable version of GTK at the time of writing, has introduced a number of changes which breaks all existing themes :(

Is there any chance this theme could be updated to 3.6?

It will take some time. Since I also have many other themes to update.

Understandable. I tried to figure out what's changed between 3.4 and 3.6 but couldn't find any documentation on it at all.

If you could help me along I'd be more than happy to give it a try myself, as well.

Amazing theme, tbh. Is there any way to make the scollbars lighter and perhaps wider so theyre easier to grab? Also there is a minor bug where some menus don't show highlighted when moused-over, and check boxes are very dark(the ones with tiny x's). Gratz!

Thank you very much for this theme!

I love it, but there's only one problem with it - I tend to use the keyboard without mouse a lot and when I move through the common dialog (while opening or saving files) in GTK3 app with up/down keys I can't see the filename because the background color is the same as the foreground color. The same thing happens in file-roller, see screenshots:
[link]
[link]

When I click on the file with the mouse, the background color returns to blue.

I noticed that the problem disappears when I comment out the second line in gtk-widgets.css (engine: unico;), but then other elements look bad.

I figured it out. Some of the colors in gtk-widgets.css have been set to transparent instead of @transparent. When I set them all to @transparent, the funny color was no longer visible. The only thing that stays now is the colors of the border of some input elements, like [link]

Hi, thanks for the great theme.
It looks great, except for QT applications (such as Krusader or LyX), the context menu background is white instead of dark.

Great theme. Would you mind tweaking it a bit for Pantheon? One issue is that the width of menus is too wide for Wingpanel menus so there's a visible rectangle exceeding the size of the menus. The window borders could also be rounded a bit more but that's not necessarily required.

That's a bug in wingpanel. I believe a fix was released yesterday perhaps. I'll check again.

Mm, don't think it's an issue with Wingpanel since the elementary GTK theme from the Luna daily repository doesn't have this issue. Why not try using it as the base for this theme instead of the original you used? Don't mean to sound like I'm demanding you do this, mind you. I've always loved smooth, dark themes though and this one's nearly perfect.
