hi originalseed,

I just like your theme. But one question: could you also please make a gtk3-version from it for Gnome3?? I can't use gtk2-themes in Gnome3.

So could you please update this nice theme to gtk3 please??

Thanks from
Karmicbastler

There is a GTK3 theme in there. I tested it with Mint GNOME3, theme loaded fine.

What distro do you use?

Looks beautiful, using Arch with Icewm & gtk2.
(No more Gnome Here) so I have no gtk3

Suggest...

}
image
{
function = FOCUS
recolorable = TRUE
file = "Others/null.png"
border = { 0, 0, 0, 0 }
stretch = TRUE
}

Added in to gtkrc in styles
to remove those focus rings from buttons,tabs
I do not like to see your fine art messed up with
stupid focus dots.

I am not sure if you can set globally, I set it for each style separately for example...
style "notebook" and style "buttons" at the end
of each style.

Hmm, "focus dots", you may have a point there.
I did not noticed that but now that you mentioned...

Yeah, I think Ill remove that in future upgrade

download the two packages and stick it in the themes folder, then go to Advanced Settings ---> and explore to find the files you download and open it, but it says unsupported issue, I leave the catch

Ah, no, When you download the zip extract it and copy DarkCold4 dir to the /usr/share/themes by opening terminal and enter

gksu nautilus

enter password navigate to the /usr/share/themes and drag DarkCold4 dir in it.

now select the GTK+ Theme not Shell as your print screen shows.

kdeglobals save to /home/YOUR-USERNAME/.kde/share/config

Possible issues with metacity theme (border around the window[title bar, close button...]) may not change, I have this problem with Mint 12 Gnome and Cinnamon, no problem with MATE.

Really cool 'gas discharge' lighting effect
on those widgets/menus.
Nice violet blue. GTK3? ^^)

Im still using gnome 2.3 but next step is KDE version, since Im very disappointed with gnome3, so no gtk3 from me for now :(

If it's any consolation, I haven't been inclined
to try Gnome-3/Unity yet (maybe never).
My reason for requesting GTK3 is for visual
parity between apps on Xfce(4.8).
There are classic configuration apps in Gnome
that fit well with Xfce, except the themes of course! ;-))
Examples:- User, time, date, services admin, PulseAudio, Gnome-games...

Cheers :)

My next DE on PC at work has to be xfce, so I guess I will address those issues for sure.

I love this.... Only thing that would make it better is having orange instead of blue.

Glad you like it.
It is not so hard to modify it, change the color of buttons, tabs, progress bar, lines, handles with photoshop/gimp or what ever.... and in config theme file change font color and your done.

You gonna need beer for this job :)

Absolutely the best theme out there that supports GTK3. I love literally everything about it. I'm a huge fan of skeuomorphism so I'm really glad you turned this into reality. Works just great with MATE + Compiz (also using your Metacity decoration with compiz-decorator)! Flat's not my thing, long live glossy design!
