If you want a dark shell theme for 3.10 you can check this one out, though I'm not sure if, or how much longer, I'll continue sharing my themes.
http://fav.me/d6yage9 - Feb 17 2014
Thank you.

There have been some good people that have gotten fed up with the way Gnome (dev) works, and given up on it. I've wasted hours in irc & scouring the web looking for answers to questions that go unanswered.

Yet Gnome shell is still my environment of choice so I try to ignore the politics & perceived ineptitude.

I'm very happy you reconsidered your decision. The first theme I ever 'made' was derived from your themes. So even if not kept current, they still have value. =) - Jan 25 2013
I understand your frustration, but ask that you reconsider deleting your themes.

Someone may pick up the torch. They are too nice, and you've invested too much time, to just make them disappear. - Jan 25 2013
Like I posted the other day, are they ever really finished?

Looks great, I like the way it is evolving. - Jan 14 2012
Add this below the #panel entry and you're bottom panel from Mint will inherit the theme in the top panel (might be a cleaner way to do this but it works):

  • #bottomPanel {
    background-gradient-direction: vertical;
    background-gradient-start: rgba(88,88,88,0.7);
    background-gradient-end: rgba(0,0,0,0.6);
    color: rgba(255,255,255,0.98);
    border-top: 0px;
    border-left: 0px;
    border-right: 0px;
    height: 24px;
    box-shadow: 0px 3px 12px rgba(0,0,0,0.9);
    font-family: MintSpirit, cantarell, ubuntu, serif;
    font-size: 10pt;
    }


  • *font-family of your choosing - Dec 02 2011
    Very much so, I tweaked just a couple things, I run into the same with every theme. The status icons are always spaced too far apart. This is what I do to correct that:
  • .panel-button {
    -natural-hpadding: 3px;
    -minimum-hpadding: 3px;


  • I also like the effect when normal font is chosen & bold is applied when it hovers:
  • .panel-button:hover {
    background-gradient-direction: vertical;
    background-gradient-start: rgba(255,255,255,0.4);
    background-gradient-end: rgba(71,71,71,0.4);
    transition-duration: 250;
    font-weight: bold;

    I think I just discovered the theme to put on my Ubuntu installation.

    Greetings my friend. Just wanted to let you know that I took the liberty of making a variant based around your zen-nokto that I call 'Neptune'. I hope you approve. I love working with your GTK themes. http://fav.me/d6k1l55 - Aug 28 2013

    If you want better definition in the text entry boxes insert this in the gtkrc.

    #### Firefox text fix goes inside the theme name/gtk-2.0/gtkrc (or an app fix in the gtk-2.0/styles) This should work with all problematic dark themes in Firefox #########

    style "ff" {
    text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    base[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
    }
    class "GtkInvisible" style "ff"
    widget "GtkInvisible" style "ff"

    style "custom" {
    GtkWidget::cursor-color = "#000000"
    GtkWidget::secondary-cursor-color = "#FF0000"
    }
    widget_class "*" style "custom"

    ###### End of Firefox fix ##########

    This is black text on crisp white, you can experiment with the color codes. - Sep 24 2012
    Glad you found it useful.

    Sometimes it's those little (mostly)undocumented things that can make a difference. I try to learn something new everyday. ;-) - Sep 22 2012

    I don't use Ubuntu so don't have that problem (anymore) but I plan to try and make your fix as widely known as possible

    Thanks. & I really like the look of this theme. ;-)
    - Jun 01 2012
    Glad you tried it out, it lends itself to customization.

    I made some improvements, fixed the text cursor problem. I posted the entire fix in the changelog on the Cherry Bomb v3.4 Gnome shell theme.

    Hopefully this will prove itself & be adopted a little more universally. I've done the userChrome.css patch in the past to make some dark themes usable but this is a little more elegant I think. This may be overridden by the userChrome.css method so if you've applied that you may have to get rid of it. - Jun 01 2012
    Paste this into your /gtk-2.0/gtkrc or the ~/.gtkrc (you can create it if it doesn't exist) Can also be inserted in the styles/*.rc files if your gtk-2.0 theme uses them.


    ----> cut & paste <----
    style "ff"
    {
    text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    base[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
    }
    class "GtkInvisible" style "ff"
    widget "GtkInvisible" style "ff"

    ----> cut & paste <----

    Should work with just about every theme. If you sort out how to make the text cursor visible using this I'd appreciate knowg how you did it. - Jun 01 2012

    A gtk2 verson would be nice, though I don't know how much life gtk2 has in it.

    Something nearly as good would be a script or app that reads your gtk.css & generates the gtk2 color scheme, the rest is pretty standard.

    Thanks for sharing. - Jan 04 2012
