Description:

Darcwaita gnome shell & gtk themes
The unholy marriage of my theming styles incorporated with that of Arc-Dark
( by Horst3180 & currently maintained by NicoHood )

The shell theme is built from the current version of Gnome 3.30 but has been interjected with bits from
the previous 2 versions as well so should be compatible with 3.26 & 3.28. Applying it with the user-theme
extension should make it at least 90% compatible for versions even older.
If you install the gnome-shell-theme.gresource file you will have the benefit of gdm login screen colored
in the Darcwaita colors ** BACKUP your current gnome-shell-theme.gresource file in case it fails to work
correctly ** If all else fails just reinstall gnome-shell using the package installer for your particular
distribution.

The Gtk3 is built from the current gtk+ version 3.24

The Gtk2 provided is the one from the Arc-Dark theme with a couple very minor modifications

(For non-Gnome shell users convenience the Gtk themes are available standalone, just extract and drop into
a folder named Darcwaita)

My philosophy towards theme customization is that the Gnome team provides the best and most up to date code
for a fast and reliable desktop, it merely lacks the color and style options that I find most appealing.

If you feel so inclined and you find any of these themes useful you could contribute to my Kraken Fund
but if that's not in the budget a + and a comment is appreciated as well.

Put in /usr/share/themes or .themes in your home folder.

I most still be doing something wrong because shouldn't it make my entire desktop look like yours and give me the right bar for my workspace? I have only made minor changes with application and shell. I rebooted but nothing. Am I supposed to select a file in shell?

Changed the optional icon theme.
To install place in ~/.icons or /usr/share/icons, the name of the folder should be Darcwaita.

Corrected an oversight.
Can't believe no one brought to my attention the fact that checked checkboxes were invisible on menuitems until hovered.
Fixed!
