It's in the AUR
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ceti-2-themes/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ceti-2-themes-git/ - Sep 24 2015
Oops, that was the 3.16 version. The correct lines are 2949 and 2957. - Jun 02 2015
Yes, that's possible.
For the button text color you have to open _drawing.scss, go to line 100 and change

saturate(lighten($selected_bg_color, 18%), 24%)

to whatever you like (this can be replaced by a hex code).

Also you have to change the color of the icon-shadow in line 192.

The other two styles are shared by several widgets and are defined in _common.scss in line 2980 and 2988. - Jun 01 2015
Sorry, I missed your messages :( I've been busy with other stuff and it's easy to loose track sometimes.

So, if you want to change the blue color, you have to edit Ceti-2-theme/common/gtk-3.0/<your-gtk-version>/_colors.scss.
Change the hex value in this line

$_selected_bg_color: #2468A0;

to whatever you want. After that, you have to regenerate the .css files with the `parse-sass.sh` script. There's a README in the directory with some short instructions on how to get sass installed.

Some of the images used in the theme also contain the blue color. To change that, you have to edit the `assets.svg` file and adjust the colors (make sure you don't change the object id's in the process).
After that you need to delete the corresponding .png images from the `assets` and `borders` subdirectories and run `render-assets.sh` and/or `render-borders.sh`. - May 28 2015

I just noticed this myself. I'm working on a fix. - May 30 2015
Thanks, it's Futura bk bt medium. - May 28 2015
Hm, I don't think it will work that easily. If there's a way to do it, I don't know it. - Apr 24 2015
Which Gnome version is that? I'm assuming it's Debian with Gnome 3.4?
You need at least Gnome 3.10 to use this theme. Older versions won't work. - Apr 24 2015
The widget in question seems to be a GtkFrame.
You could create ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css with the following content

GtkFrame { border-color: red }

And log out and back in.
This will leave the theme untouched and will just override this one setting.
I don't know if this has any side effects, though. There are probably apps that use a GtkFrame differently, which will then look bad, depending on the color you choose.
As you said, this is really a problem of bad app design than everything else. - Apr 21 2015
Modifying the theme got a bit more complex, since I ported it to Sass. See here for further information about Sass: http://sass-lang.com
The css files in this package are the output of .scss files. You can see the source directory on my github page (this is the gtk3 theme for gtk 3.14 for example)
https://github.com/horst3180/Vertex-theme/tree/master/Vertex-gtk-3.14/gtk-3.0
You can get this with "git clone https://github.com/horst3180/vertex-theme"
If you want to modify the theme, you need to edit _common.scss in most cases (this is where all the main widget styles are defined). You can paste your modifications at the bottom of this file. Remember to adjust the names of the variables.
All colors are defined in _colors.scss. I you want to change the blue color, you have to replace $_selected_bg_color: #4080fb; with any other color you like.
After you have made your changes save the .scss files and then run the parse-sass.sh script in the directory. This will generate the gtk-contained.css files.
Now copy the whole vertex-theme directory to a different location and execute the build.sh script. This will give you a .zip file similar to the one I uploaded here. Never run the build.sh script in your working directory. It will create a huge mess.
That's pretty much my workflow. It may seem complex, but by porting the theme to Sass I managed to reduce the code by more than 1k lines. - Apr 10 2015
Everything should be fixed with the latest update. - Apr 10 2015
Do you have any other extensions installed that could interfere with the userchrome.css? - Apr 10 2015
Thanks! Could you show me a screenshot of the XFCE issue? I'll fix it if possible. - Mar 26 2015
Sorry for the late reply. I plan to release those icons eventually, but icon design takes a huge amount of time and I don't want to release something half baked. - Mar 07 2015
Hi, I have heard about this issue before. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to affect every user. I can't reproduce it and therefore can't find what's going wrong. However I keep this in mind and try to find a solution. - Feb 07 2015
Ok,
you need to edit the Vertex-Dark/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets-dark-overrides.css file.

Add this to the end of the file

.header-bar .button:active,
.header-bar .button.flat:active,
.toolbar .button:active,
.toolbar .button.flat:active,
.primary-toolbar .button:active,
.primary-toolbar .button.flat:active,

Hi,

1) I tried to make the toolbars + toolbar buttons dark. While it works fine for some applications, some others have bugs like unreadable text.
Basically I have to agree with this bug report for Ambiance
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mate/+bug/1338132

2) I already began investigating the thunderbird issues. Currently there are only dark-theme issues reported, but for the other themes it's okay too to report there. See https://github.com/horst3180/Vertex-theme/issues/14

3) This looks like the overlay-scrollbar issue. Try disabling the overlay scrollbars as described in the README, this should fix this. I won't workaround this issue in my theme because it is the patched Gtk version that Ubuntu is using that is causing this issue and it should be fixed by them (obviously still not fixed with 14.10).
Also see here https://github.com/horst3180/Vertex-theme/issues/11
There is a proposed workaround, but I read somewhere that this doesn't work all the time. - Oct 25 2014

Hi, do you mean the blue text? - Oct 25 2014
Hi,
I found a way to fix this.
You need to put this

@define-color theme_unfocused_base_color @theme_base_color;
@define-color theme_unfocused_fg_color @theme_fg_color;
@define-color theme_unfocused_bg_color @theme_bg_color;

into the gtk-3.0/gtk-dark.css file (if you are using the 3.12 or 3.10 version)
or into the gtk-3.0/gtk-main-dark.css file (if you are using 3.14)

Or you wait until the next update. I'll include this. - Oct 23 2014
Oh, and Vertex supports more desktop environments than Ceti (Gnome, Cinnamon, XFCE, Mate, Pantheon, Unity). I havent gotten around to make Ceti as complete.
- Oct 20 2014
I created the original Ceti first, then I made Vertex from scratch. The 3.14 version of Ceti however is closely based on Vertex, because
a) it looks better than the previous version
b) it maked maintaining both themes easier
The differences between the two can be seen in the screenshots, but it's mainly the color scheme and some special things (for example the window buttons) for each theme. - Oct 20 2014
Hello,
I've tried to override the addressbar color from within the theme but I can't find a way to make it work. Maybe it would be the best to send a bug report to the opera developers or wait until someone figures out how to fix this. - Oct 08 2014
Thanks,
for some reason the shell theme causes crashes on some systems using the open source drivers. I don't know yet why exactly this happens. Maybe it would be better for you if you use another shell theme until this is sorted out. - Sep 20 2014
Hi,
could you show me the output of "glxinfo | grep render"?
Also replace Vertex-GS/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css with Vertex-GS/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-no-crash.css
This will make the pressed dash buttons look wrong but should fix the crash.
There is also a section about this in the README. - Sep 19 2014
That's a bug in libreoffice. It uses the same color for the selected menubar item and the selected menu item. I could make it black, but the selected text in the menu would also be black. - Sep 10 2014
Ok, now I'm confused. I thought this was an issue with llvmpipe, but I'm also using Sandybridge and don't have the problem. - Aug 31 2014
You are right, but I think there's not much I can do about this since I can't change the icon colors in Unity from within my theme, but I'll look into it and try to find a solution. - Aug 31 2014
Hi,
I've heard of this bug from another user. I'll quote myself:

I think the crash occurs when gnome shell uses llvmpipe. Try "glxinfo | grep render"and check if that's the case.
Also removing/commenting "box-shadow: none;" in the lines 1116,1125,1143 and 1152 of the gnome-shell.css file seems to fix the crash. The only issue with that is that the pressed dash buttons now look wrong, but atleast the rest works. - Aug 31 2014
Oh and making the nautilus sidebar dark is quite easy. Put this in the nautilus section of the "gnome-applications-darker-overrides.css" file.

http://pastebin.com/wH0DLvgp - Aug 17 2014
A dark gtk2 theme would only be an addition and I would of course keep the old theme as default. - Aug 17 2014
They should look like the buttons in the dark header-bars to be consistent with the gtk3 theme. - Aug 17 2014
Sorry for the late answer. This does work for the toolbar background but the toolbar buttons are still light, so I'll have to look into that. If you want to help you are welcome to do so. - Aug 17 2014
I made the scrollbar use the terminal background color of the theme to get a more unified look. To set the terminal background to the right color, go to the "Colors" tab in the preferences and check "Use colors from system theme". This will make the background dark, though. - Aug 17 2014
Hello,
you are right. There isn't a dark theme for gtk2 yet. I'll try to make one but dark gtk2 themes can quickly become unusable. - Aug 17 2014
Yes, thats because Ubuntu uses Gtk 3.10 and the tab styling changed with Gtk 3.12. So what you see are the standard Gtk 3.10 tabs that can't be styled to look like the new ones, so I leave them like this. - Aug 03 2014
Oh, I know what's the problem. To fix the tabs you need to install gnome-themes-standard. To make the theme available for root, copy the folder to /usr/share/themes (see README). - Aug 03 2014
Hi,
the tabs look wierd because I think you installed the 3.12 version of the theme. Remove the theme and install it from the "Gnome_3-10_Ubuntu-14-04" folder.
The firefox problem seems to be an issue with the gtk2 theme. Make sure you have the package gtk2-engines-pixbuf installed. If that doesn't fix it, it's likely a permission problem. Please read the README on how to change the permissions.
Since you use Ubuntu you can also copy the theme to ~/.themes (if you haven't already done that) to avoid permission problems. - Aug 03 2014
Ok, that looks like the metacity theme isn't set, so the window borders aren't decorated properly. Make sure you have selected the theme in gnome tweak tool. It has to be set in the first entry that says "Window" aswell.
Or execute

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "Vertex"

If that doesn't work please read the troubleshooting section in the README. - Aug 02 2014
Thank you for the Feedback. I'll see what i can do. - Jul 31 2014
Thanks! I think this http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zukitwo-Dark-Shell?content=165096 is a very good shell theme. The app in the second screenshot is gthumb-git https://github.com/GNOME/gthumb - Jul 31 2014
Thanks, is this still happening if you log out and log back in again? If yes, could you show me a scrennshot? - Jul 31 2014
Hi,
to fix the permissions try this:
sudo chmod -R 755 /usr/share/themes/Vertex - Jul 27 2014
Well that's strange because I have the same setup. It seems that the theme doesn't load at all and falls back to the ugly default gtk theme. Are you sure the permissions are set correctly i.e. can you access the files with nautilus? You could also try to install the theme locally, if you haven't already. - Jul 26 2014
Hi,
Thanks for your suggestions. I will consider them, but please be aware that i can't include every single suggestion into the main theme. Also, synaptic should be fixed now. - Jul 26 2014
Hi,
I searched a bit around and found out that this is actually a bug of sublime or libpng. The consequence is that sublime can't load pixmap themes with png files. I have included a fix for that in the latest update, so you might want to look into that and tell me if it works. - Jul 26 2014

I'm currently working on a follow-up to this theme, which is based on Vertex (which I already ported to 3.14) to make it easier to maintain both themes. So it will look like Vertex with the Ceti color scheme and with some Ceti specific stuff (window buttons, etc.). It is approximately 75% done but it will take some time to finish it. - Oct 13 2014
You can override the font settings in nemo with a little bit of css. First save this http://pastebin.com/jt7GSFTD as nemo-fonts.css to the gtk-3.0 folder of the theme. Now open the gtk.css file and add

@import url("nemo-fonts.css");

at the bottom. - Apr 26 2014
Ah, I see. I should have made that clearer in the readme. The default behaviour is to hide the buttons in the maximized window to save some space. I included an alternative metacity theme with the first update. So make sure you have the recent version and use the metacity theme in the "Ceti_alternative_metacity" folder instead. - Apr 26 2014
Could you show me a screenshot? - Apr 26 2014
