I have spent almost three months tinkering on this theme. I was hoping to have it ready as an xmas-upload, but I always find new things to redesign. I have been trying to take as much advantage of the different states of gnome-shell as possible, my wish and attempt has been to make the desktop diverse and alive.
The result is a dark and stylish desktop, with a dash of eye-leading coloring, which is using one of the most awesome fonts ever - Lato.
If you don't yet have Lato search for "ttf-google-fonts-typewolf" in your package manager or go to: typewolf.com/google-fonts ... Or just get it here.
-- If you download it then extract the archive in:
Note: There are two variants available. One with the original Slim Dock and a new Pantheon-ish Dock.
::: Installation :::
1) Extract and put Carapace in either
2) Select Carapace from Gnome Tweak Tool
1) Pick the downloaded archive directly from within Tweak Tool and it'll extract and do the rest for you.
::: Required Extensions :::
- User themes
- Dash to Dock
::: Useful Extensions :::
-- Because while the Gnome weather-program is cool, your location might not be there.
-- Any KDE Connect user needs this :-D
- Custom Corner
-- Creates more freedom
-- Adds blurred background for the Overview
::: NOT Recommended Extensions :::
- Carapace has a built-in responsive panel. So an panel-altering extension is not needed, and for the full experience not recommended whatsoever.
::: Other than that :::
