The odd GTK3 menu behaviour, should now be fixed, wich should affect the NM-Applet issue.

Regarding to the right click issue with gedit seems to be a gedit bug, Adwaita, Zukitwo, and others seem to have this issue as well, i would state that as a gedit bug.

When i tried this theme in XFCE i found out that GTK2 menuitems are smaller than the GTK3 ones, i personally would like to increase xthickness & ythickness with 1px to keep semi-consistency with the GTK3 counterparts.

I don't know what you would like of this, so i left that one out for the moment, meaning no change.

Also i would really recommend trying out the Cinnamon desktop with Nemo filebrowser, and xfce4-terminal, but it's all up to you, but i fell direcly in love with it since day one.

Thanks for being such a great supporter, and i will always appreciate your reports =D - Jun 14 2013
Okey i'll install XFCE and try to reproduce the error and hopefully fix it. - Jun 11 2013
Hey i did not hear back from you, do you still have the issues with the menus? i do not myself have them, since i run cinnamon. You are running classic mode right? just give me a shout and i will try to reproduce you'r issue and try to find a solution.
When i get back today i will try running Gnome in Fallback/Classic mode. - Jun 11 2013
Sorry stupid question of me, you are running Gnome 3 in Fallback mode right or is it called Classic mode nowdays? - Jun 07 2013
And this did not hapen i previous versions?
Wich DE are you running, MATE?
i'll install and try it out there - Jun 07 2013
Ahhh yeah i made shrunk the menubar indeed since the window-border become a little bigger, i have reverted the changes and updated the theme package, the i can probably fix the window border by properly reevaluating the issue, just keep reporting further isssues, thanks for using my theme =D
btw is there anything else you want me to tix? - Jun 07 2013
Or even better, join me at #adwaiata-elements on irc.freenode.org - Jun 06 2013
Or show me how the old ones looked compared to the new ones if possible? - Jun 06 2013
Can you send me a screenshot showing the difference between the GTK2 and GTK3 ones and i'll have a look at it, sorry if i missed that - Jun 06 2013
Okey i have now updated the metacity theme, withe the codebase based of Cleaner Adwaita Buttons, hope you enjoy it =D - Jun 06 2013
I have tried to contact the author to the theme Cleaner Adwaita Buttons, asking for help to port those captions to this theme. - May 31 2013
The thing is this, my Metacity theme is written in Metacity 1.x code, and the wonderful adwaita theme is written in metacity 2.x code, i know it sounds odd,

Anyhow i cannot simply copy & paste the window captions from the new Adwaita theme, since it will not work togheter with metacity 1.x code since it's not compatible.

And i cannot take my code in the new Adwaita theme since it's not compatible with metacity 2.x 3.x code.

So my only option is this take the new Adwaita theme, learn the new code, and start over theming it to look like the old one, with just newer captions.

And that's why it's so hard, but i will try and see were it goes. - May 29 2013
Try this metacity theme togheter with Adwaita Elements http://jamiepgs.deviantart.com/art/Cleaner-Adwaita-Buttons-268982576

Yes it will not blend in perfecly, but those captions is the ones i want, though porting the metacity theme will be alot of work, for me atleast, since it does not use pixmaps.

If anyone would help me out i would love it, perhaps ask the designer, but this is just to much work for me.

I will try though, but any help would be great - May 28 2013
I am shrinking it 1px at a time, try again now - May 10 2013
Try now Hamish Wilson - May 08 2013
Don't worry keep reporting errors, i will certainly look into this, there's just old code from the old Adwaita Elements merged togheter with Clearlooks-Phoenix and, there's horizontal & vertical paddings specified in the menuitem property at the same time there's only a vertical padding specified in the menubar property, making things messy sometimes.

The theme does indeed need a clean up, but i will look into the issue and keep reporting until you are satisfied =D *I'll try to see if i can look into this tonight*

Thanks for using my theme. - May 02 2013
Try now - May 02 2013
Updated the theme, try it out now - May 01 2013
New release go ahead and try it out with Gnome 3.8 =D - Apr 30 2013
Hey guys just wanted to point out that Gnome 3.8 broke the theme, i am waiting for my base-theme Clearlooks-Phenix to release an update, once that's done i will fix this theme, just have patience =D - Apr 24 2013
Could anyone point me out what Compiz/Beryl theme that are using these captions? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v27/maxima/Compiz/minimize.jpg
I plan to use those captions on my theme - Apr 04 2013
# 1 To fix the menubar in firefox copy userChrome.css from the theme directory to ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/

# 2 I will take a look at the buttons and see what i can do - Feb 23 2013
Updated the the theme, tell me if you still find the tabs to be to small.
I have also added a fix for the menubar in firefox, i will take a look at LibreOffice later.
Just keep reporting bugs ;) - Feb 23 2013

Hey i could not reply on you'r last post.
Thanks for sending me this odt document, this is just what i wanted =D

I'll see what i can do, i'll let you know when. - Feb 01 2013
I have not added any new features for the theme yet, but suggestions are welcome, so just point out if there's anything i should fix of add.
I am for the moment just waiting to see what will be broken when the next version of Gnome arrives ;)

Oh btw i have made an addon that adds a border to the top panel, just like in Gnome 3.0
you can grab it here http://unlogical.net/files/themes/Gnome/Extensions/panel.border@overflow.net.tar.gz
put it in /home/user/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ - Jan 31 2013
I have fixed the GTK2 tooltips now,
regarding the menu there's i have not added any gradients. Try the new version, if you still have the problem send me a screenshot. - Dec 14 2012
Scrollbar & Menus are now fixed - Dec 14 2012
The menus and scrollbars will be fixed, dont worry ;)
The most challenging part will be the buttons,
GTK3 stretches images different than in GTK2. I hope that it can be fixed soon. - Dec 11 2012
That's a design issue that have been fixed in Nautilus 3.6
Before i had to manually add a border to the nautilus sidebar, this is now not needed in nautilus 3.6

Here's an image how it looks in Nautilus 3.6
http://oi49.tinypic.com/2r4hlok.jpg

And yes i will make the buttons prettier ;) - Dec 05 2012
Here's the new Adwaita Elements, it is now based of clearlooks-phenix, wich makes things much easier.
Note this is a preview release, so it's not finished - you can grab it here
http://unlogical.net/files/themes/GTK/Adwaita-Elements-TESTING.tar.gz - Nov 30 2012
I am sorry that i haven't had the time to work on the theme, every Gnome update seems to break something.
But i have not abandoned this theme since it's my default theme.

Hopefully i get some time fixing the theme. - Nov 28 2012
What gradients are you refering to? I would be very glad if you could point out those.
- Oct 26 2012
I have released an pre-release of Adwaita Elements 0.2 that works with Gnome 3.4. I know there are some missing things, but since it's a while since the last update i felt like sharing this work-in-progress release. - Jul 03 2012
I am soon done fixing the theme to work on Gnome 3.4 - Jun 12 2012
Hey, yes i am going to update this theme so it works with Gnome 3.4. Every Gnome update seems to break stuff, this time they changed alot in the theme making it very hard for me to sync the changes with between Adwaita and Adwaita Elements.

The easiest way seems to be to start over again and using the latest Adwaita theme for base.

So it may take a little longer due to this. - Jun 07 2012
Tooltip fixed in latest update. - Feb 28 2012
Just in case if you missed to see that i updated the Adwaiata Elements theme, i would just want to let you know that the foreground bug is fixed in the latest version of Adwaita Elements - Nov 25 2011
Yep i know about that bug, it came during when i did the quick merge against the latest Adwaita theme. I will fix it with many others things in a few days. - Nov 20 2011
Thanks for reporting this, i will surley look into this.

1. If I open a new terminal as a tab the scrollbar changes?

Ahh yeah, i can confirm that, i even also saw that Tabs looks aswell
*This should be fairly easy*, since i am going to make the tabs in Gnome-terminal transparent as well.


2. The theme are crash prone here when restarting the shell with alt+f2 "r" especially with a few application open e.g. firefox will do it for sure at least here. It will crash me to the opps logout screen. This use to happen a lot with the default GTK3 but I can't really get the default theme to crash anymore. Perhaps something changed in the original codebase?

This is absolutley something i am really going to look into.

Glad it worked out well for you =D
You maybe want to try out the update, just recently uploaded it. - Jun 25 2011
Try this out, choose the Adwaita Elements from Tweak-Tool, restart gnome-shell and fire up a terminal and try to start eg FileRoller,Gedit etc from the terminal *So that we can get some verbose output of what's going wrong. Copy&Paste the output to eg the pastebin service and just post the URL here.

- Jun 24 2011
Oh i almost forgot, when changing the window decoration in Gnome-Tweak-Tool, you need to either relog or press simply ALT + F2 and do just type r in the run-dialog and press enter to reload the Window borders. - Jun 23 2011
If you are running Gnome 3.x then make sure
that you also selected Adwaita Elements
under the Window section in Gnome-Tweak-Tool.

If you do not have Gnome-Tweak-Tool,
i recommend to install it ;)
Just simply install Gnome-Tweak-Tool in you'r distro-repository. - Jun 23 2011
Always a plesaure to see people liking this theme =D
I have som ideas that i am going to add as soon as i have time. Thanks for kind input - Jun 18 2011
I am really glad that you liked the theme =D - May 29 2011
Okey, glad to hear that it was not caused by the theme, There's a workaround for this bug, when you want to rename any file *Right Click* -> *Properties* and rename the file that way. I've always used that method since Properties is just at the bottom of the menu so it's easy to target with the mouse when in a hurry ;) - May 28 2011
Under what situation are you unable to rename files? Is it in Nautilus or any other program? - The more information i can get will help me to reproduce the bug on my system aswell. - May 28 2011
