Love this theme! Just one question: what font did you use for your system in the screenshot? I would really like to use it. :)

I created an account just to thank you.
I've been using this theme for 2+ years, and I still love it. A LOT.
It's beautiful, it's perfect. The best theme I've ever seen!
Thank you for doing it :)

Seems this theme need some updates on XFCE, gtk3 doesn't always display correctly, and bounce effects on lists are not managed.
sondra-kinsey Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014
I really like your theme, but I cannont distinguish the selected button when I select buttons in a message box using the tab keys to get around. I use the keyboard more than the mouse, so for me this is a deal-breaker. I'll probably try to dig around in the source later for how to edit this myself, but I thought I should let you know.
isracii Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014
how install this theme, i can't. I got OpenBox in ArchLinux. HEEELP MEEEE!!! I copy the files in /usr/share/themes, but dont know how update the list of theme. :(

Otherwise, Very nice theme and looks good with Xmonad :)

The only thing that is nagging me about this theme is that some buttons doesn't turn dark (For instance Pidgin), Is their something I'm missing?
abeldantas Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014
Where do I get those icons?
contrerae Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014
Best dark theme ever! Thanks

Can you make version with #0b0b0b color as main? Thanks!
cyb3rc0de Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014
I love your work man! I really do :D This is one of best themes I have ever seen ^^

Can you please update it? Synaptic is kinda broken when started or any other package manager :/

Thanks on your hard work!
tamasbanki Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014
Thanks, great work! :)
cyb3rc0de Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014
actually, theme is broken now on MATE de. Works fine except for package managers, where it breaks.
lifeinthegrey Featured By Owner May 18, 2014
Hey boss, love this theme ... I actually rotate between the Orange, Red, and Turquoise depending on mood. I've been using for a while now, I love how polished and complete it is, truly magnificent work.

I wanted to ask though ... would it be possible to update it for GTK 3.12? Overall it looks the same as before, except for the fact that on buttons / menu selections the text background matches the default background rather than the highlight background. It's the one blemish on an otherwise pristine beauty. :)

does someone knows a similar theme for windows 7 ?

hello i have a problem with menus in xfce, the menus are big ,i install all requirements please help me ,i am sorry for me english.
strungoutfan78 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014
I had the same issue.  No idea why anyone would want such huge menus.  Minor blemish on an otherwise outstanding theme.  The OMG suite by the same author is a great theme as well.

The file you need to edit is {theme_folder}/GTK-2.0/styles/menu-menubar.  The section you're looking for is:

style "menuitem"
xthickness     = 3
ythickness             = 5

The bold line is the value you want to change.  3 is a pretty standard spacing but I actually went down to 2 and I now have very compact menus.  Hope this helps.
cyb3rc0de Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014
did the trick :) thanks!
davehope Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014
I have the same problem with the padding on the menus. It's particularly bad in xfce4-terminal

GTK+ 3.10.6
XFCE 4.10

Otherwise, a really great theme
sgtluax Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2014
Same thing here

it feels...weird to have a right-click menu so big as this.

is there anyway to fix this?

El mejor Tema que he conocido. Gracias
viper33-25 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013
This theme is great. Only problem I have is that in gedit and terminal the tabs are the same colour both selected and unselected. I think it has something to do with the " .notebook tab " section however I can't quite pin down the correct setting. Any help would be great. 
kaffirnutz Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
this theme is awesome. i cannot load certain applications though with this theme installed, eg. gparted gives me:

cairo-scaled-font.c:459: _cairo_scaled_glyph_page_destroy: Assertion `!scaled_font->cache_frozen' failed

Hello, I have a little problem with the theme, see…

Is there any way to port this theme to Windows7 ?
nazar-pc Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013
Will you continue developing of these theme? It is most beautiful for me at this moment, but Unity from Ubuntu 13.10 have lighter separators in lists on top panel.
balcso Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2013

Wow, I'm thinking about switch to Linux Mint and this looks like the theme I'm gonna use, great great job!

This theme doesn't work well with Gnome3.8: the desktop background is not configurable when letting the file manager handle the desktop. :(

Hey, I installed this on Gnome 3.6, but all the title bars and window borders are white??
nale12 Featured By Owner May 3, 2013
Did you put theme to /usr/share/themes?
Zeppekk Featured By Owner May 4, 2013
Whoops, forgot I'm actually running Gnome 3.8.

And yeah, I installed it to /usr/share/themes, when I checked in the XML for the metacity theme, a lot of the colour hexes were for light grey / white colours, I've since changed them to match the rest of the theme, not sure why they were like that. They had those light colours in all of the colour variants too.
