Package contains 8 versions of gtk3,gtk2,metacity,unity,xfwm4 and openbox theme.
To install themes, extract archive to /usr/share/themes. Gtk3 theme is for 3.10 version.

Requirements for gtk3 theme is only gnome-themes-standard package.
Requirements for gtk2 theme is murrine and pixbuf engines.

Gtk3 theme has customizable color.You can setup any color you want,just open file settings.ini and change value of 'selected_bg_color'.
IMPORTANT: Theme must be in /usr/share/themes in order to work color customization.

If you use mostly gtk applications you can use Flattastic themes. If you use a lot qt application it is recommended to use Flatastic-Light themes,because Flatastic theme has text color problems with qt applications. It is unsolvable. If you have some problems with Flatastic themes and gtk apps just send a bug report here,and I will try to fix it(do not send for qt apps).

hey, awesome theme! For some reason the maximize/minimize buttons dont show up as the colored circles. Any idea how to fix this? am using gnome 3.10

Hey Nale, great theme, just one problem though, the window close, minimze, and maximize buttons in inactive windows are a bit messy looking on Ubuntu 14.04. Would really appreciate a fix.

hey, what icon pack you're using?

If you are using this on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr ***with Unity***, then don't waste your time like I did with trying to align the "close, minimize, maximize" window controls to the top right of the window. From 14.04 it is not possible anymore by design.

Hi! I'm trying to change the colors and one of two things happens, it either gets rid of the flat look or it doesn't change at all. Beautiful theme!

Another bug: Midori 5.8: when you type text in the address bar, the menu that pops up is illegible. I'm using Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 by the way, Flattastic Light.

Nice work.

And there is a problem with chrome/chromium menu bar or popup menu. The item selected is white on my xfce4.10. I modify gtk-2.0/styles/menu-menubar bg[SELECTED] in style "menuitem" to bg_color. And it's work for me.

Thk your work. Sorry my english, i'm Chinese.

That's sort of the same as the quick-and-dirty fix they suggested.

You better change

bg[SELECTED]    = @selected_bg_color


bg[SELECTED]    = @selected_fg_color
But like they say in the link, this will break LibreOffice menus though. So it depends what you use more often: Chrom(e|ium) or LibreOffice.
