Ubuntu 12.04 Software Center>App Details View has still light color. There is no way?
I have been waiting for the fix.

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.

Great theme but looks messed up after updating to GTK 3.6. Do you plan on updating it?

Hi. I won't update it anymore. You can however use the Dark version of Evolve GTK theme.

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!

Hmm. I'll rewrite the theme sometime when I get time. Currently it seems to be too much buggy.

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.

It is a base for my theme actually. There is no issue with the eGTK theme because it is a light theme. Wingpanel popovers cannot inherit the theme properties correctly.

Oh, and for some reason window title text is black instead of white on Luna.

Oh, seems you already know about the menu issue. Wouldn't it just be a simple fix to change the width of menus?
