Description:

Dark Matrix Theme is a GNOME desktop theme made from merge of Faenza-Dark, FaenzaWolve and FaenzaMint icon themes, modified BorderOnly window border and original GTK color scheme for dark colors which gives a nice dark theme. I also attached some tweaks in gtkrc file to fix hyper-link color present in applications like Evolution... Window Border is tiny and when window is maximized, is not shown for save space. Please fell free to comment and read the readme file for more info.

I use a transparent desktop terminal, so i use a more plain wallpaper for better reading, like wallpaper #1. If you use conventional desktop, you may use the famous system-failure wallpaper, this is wallpaper #2.

Also another similar window border that is in fact, a modified Metabox for left title centering.

Files are hosted in FileFactory, you should be able to download by going to link page, scrolling down and fill in a captcha. Anyway I don't see reason enough to vote for bad, and i appreciate vote only if the artwork in fact dislike you, and no because of connection problems.
