No problem. Open the included gtk-3.0 folder and then open the 'gnome-applications.css' file in your favorite text editor. On aprox. line #86 begins the 'canvas-item' or desktop-icon theming section. choose '.nautilus-desktop.nautilus-canvas-item' and change the 'color: XXXXXX' to what ever you like also the color of the 'text-shadow' The next few entries after that are for the states, ie. active, selected, prelight. Change those accordingly.
Cheers!

I love this theme but on some websites I cannot see what im typing. Load youtube I have to highlight the search bar to see what i typed. I have the same problem with Facebook and a couple of forums I use on a regular basis.

How can I fix this?

One option is to add the code for firefox into the gtkrc as listed below by a fellow member. I would recommend installing the Delorean-Dark-Firefox-theme http://fav.me/d5ehnes It fixes all those issues. Or you can visit the ArchLinux Firefox wiki for information on how to add the option of having black text and white background in entry-search-bars into your userChrome.css. Here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Firefox#Broken_websites_.2F_input_fields_with_dark_Gtk_Themes

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.

i have 1 question, i need to change colors into css because workstation have dark texte on dark panel at left, and the main window is white.
This is into gtk-main.css ?

One more question, editing hexa colors values, save & reload theme isnt enought to see changes? do i need to reboot session each times to see changes?

regards.

yes changes can be made in 'gtk-main.css' for colors. Or if you know the name of widget you can make the change to that particular widget in 'gtk-widgets.css'.
Text is usually either: 'theme-text-color' or 'theme-fg-color' but not always. You may find it very difficult to make changes to the coloring of this theme.
You will need to log-out and log-(back)-in for changes to the GTK to be universal. Otherwise without logging-out any newly opened app will display the changes made to gtk.

Gnome-Devs change the syntax for every ugrade version of Gnome-3.*. I have made changes to the GTK3 portion of the theme for Gnome-3.5-3.6. HERE http://fav.me/d5fslhj I have not had time to look at the changes within the Gnome-Shell. I will have it finished by the time we have a STABLE release of Gnome-3.6

First, thaks for the wondeful theme.

Can you please update it for gnome 3.6? The archive manager do not work (closes abruptly) and cannot rar/unrar etc.

Also nautilus needs some rework, apart from that it works wonderfully in 3.6.

Since my last message to you, I had decided to begin work on the upgrade to 3.6
You can find the first vers HEREhttp://fav.me/d5fslhj also it has been added to my launchpad PPA for Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal.
It is a work in progress. I thought i'd let you know. Cheers!

Hi,
For the new nautilus (3.6), the toolbar do not have the textured background. Textured background is used for the search bar. It will be awesome if you can add textured background for the toolbar and a plain searchbar (This is also the same design pattern for all the new gnome applications, so this code could be reusable).

Just add to that, all the qt applications like firefox, goldendict, Coolreader (the best ebook reader out there. Way faster and responsive than calibre) etc. do not have textured background for toolbars.
Can you please add it? The textured background gives a truly unique identity to the theme.

for Firefox I would suggest installing the matching delorean-dark-Firefox theme. The other apps you mention are either qt or gtk2. I had to remove the mesh toolbar background and replace it with the curved solid in gtk2 because it was causing strange glitches in toolbars and toolbar buttons.

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you. Thank you for pointing out the changes with nautilus and others in 3.6. I will fix that as soon as I have the opportunity.

strangely I don 't have the Adwaita theme on 2 computers with ubuntu 12.04 unity.

I 've installed anything particulary for themes.
But I have this theme in my virtual machine I do not understand why I have it in the virtual machine and not my two physical machines.

I have ubuntu-tweak and compiz-plugins-extra on the 3 machines gtk3-engines-unico is installed by default on both machines.

copy/past;chown -r /usr/share/themes/Adwaita & /usr/share/icons/Adwaita
isnt enought.
I cannot solve this strange thing. :/

The theme is built on the 'Adwaita-Engine' with some styling by the 'Unico-Engine'. Please feel free to let me know if you have any further problems with the theme.
