Black-Amber-1 by Astral-1 Black-Amber-1 by Astral-1
Black-Amber-1 (Gnome Shell 3.2.1-3.2.2.1 > GTK3 - GTK2) theme is an update to Black Widow a red and black rendition inspired by the colors of the venomous spider. I have added the GTK3 > GTK2 mods for a more complete experience, hence the name change to avoid confusion with my friend CrazyT's theme [link] . I would like to do shell mods in all the primary colors if possible and a couple of shades too, then gradually refine them all. That means newer versions for each mod over time, so as always you're thoughts are welcome, enjoy

THEME IS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL LINUX DISTROS
MUST HAVE UNICO AND PIXBUF THEME ENGINES INSTALLED

► GTK2 - you must first install latest gtk2-engine-pixbuf
► GTK3 - & latest gtk3-engines-unico

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
sudo apt-get install gtk3-engines-unico

Initial installation: Unzip (Black-Amber-1.zip) copy the resulting folder (Black-Amber-1) to (usr /share /themes) then apply with gnome tweak tool

Extensions: Copy contents of folder extensions to their corresponding folders at (file system/ usr /share /gnome shell /extensions) or alternately (home/ Ctrl-h/ .local/ share/ gnome shell/ extensions) and restart shell

Wallpaper: Included in folder wallpapers along with a few alternatives

Icons: Awoken white - 2.4 by Alecive [link]

Cursor: Oxygen White

Font: Ubuntu

Hey, found something you might like, a mod to the styles/oo.rc

See if this doesn't make using firefox a little brighter in the text entry fields:

style "oo"
{

text[NORMAL] = "#363636"
}
widget "GtkWindow" style "oo"
style "ff"
{
text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
base[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
}
class "GtkInvisible" style "ff"
widget "GtkInvisible" style "ff"

Cool! I've shifted to some work on OMG-Dark for this but Black-Amber-1 certainly looks good too.

Right now I'm also trying to hack up the Adwaita metacity, hitting a snag with how the title is displaying though, I hope to figure that out soon.

Is this theme compatible with Shell 3.4 also? It looks so drool-inducing! ^^

In its current state the app overview and tool tips wont display correctly on 3.4. Still i have already updated my shell mods to 3.4, but have not uploaded them just yet as i am updating the GTK3 and GTK2 mods that go along with them.I plan to re-upload them as suites shortly.Thanks for you're interest
