Hello, I'm running Gnome Shell 3.6.2 and these prevented me to get the metacity theme working :

In "renix-gtk-master/metacity-1/metacity-theme-3.xml"
Line 28 : <frame_geometry name="normal" title_scale="medium" rounded_top_left="flase" rounded_top_right="false"> ^

Lines 15,122 : value="blend/#2627290/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/0.5" , color="#2627290"
^ ^
This is from the latest version available the moment I'm writing this.

Tch... complete mess I meant the "flase" value for Line 28 and the non-existent "#2627290" for lines 15 and 122.

Yes I know. Strycore is now doing all the work, porting it to gtk3 and fixing bugs. There are not noticed problems whith Unity, but because of the upgrade to Gnome 3.6, Gnome Shell theme could be broken. But, you can use this nice GS theme for now [link]

Thanks for your comment!

This is one of my favorite themes I've ever used on Linux. I'm sick of all the newer themes being variations of just grey.

I'll be looking for some info on GTK 3.6 and how to port it, but considering the direction the GNOME devs are going, they'll probably purposely break all themes in the next GTK update anyway.

Thank you Ershio. Yes, I suspect the same about future GNOME releases. I honestly think that GNOME devs have lost the point. GNOME is a desktop environment, not a distro. It should be more long term stable and a lot more customizable.

Anyway, I would update the theme if I knew how to.

Hi, I've tried to fix some of the issues that appeared in Gnome 3.6. The current work in progress is available here : [link] with the main issue fixed (after fooling around with the theme, I realised that the GtkLabels should have a transparent background color). Let me know if you are aware of known issues so I can try to work on them

Wow great job with the port so far, it's much appreciated.

I'm sorry I tried looking for information on theming GTK3 but there is a surprising lack of information on doing so.

You did it man! Thank you very much! I wonder if I could update the theme using your fixed work or maybe you could share it in a new entry as reNIX 3.6 or something similar. As you wish.

I think that the checkboxes (unchecked) may feel better being gray or white. Now, blue seems weird to me. That is the only issue that I can see for the moment.

Thanks again!

Feel free to fetch my changes in order to make a new release, that's what it's there for :)
If you don't use git, github also lets you download the whole project as a tarball. Please note that I haven't included the Gnome Shell theme since I don't run GS and didn't want to mess with that.

There are issues with slider widgets which should have a transparent background, that's probably related to the checkbox issue you're talking about.

I have noticed that overlay scrollbars are black instead blue. And I think that the labels text color could be white instead black.

I´m sorry dude... I have not really idea how to upgrade the gtk theme. I googled for a tutorial but I found nothing useful. I hope somebody wants to do it, or tell me how to do it myself.

Try to extract the directory in home/yourusername/.themes. Don't forget to select the theme with your tweak tool (ububtu tweak, MyUnity, Gnome Tweak Tool, etc.).

I love the simplicity of this theme!
I don't really know what the other people are talking about this not working in Gnome Shell... It's fine! (Installing that extension that removes curves helps a lot, though)

Great theme!
I've been looking for a long time to find a Unity/Ubuntu replacement theme and this is the first one I've found that I actually like and can regularly use. So thanks for the effort!

The only things I may suggest changing are:
- have the background be black/dark for the panel drop-down menus instead of white
- use larger/more distinct maximize/minimize/close buttons
- there are some things that need to be tweaked, like toggling the 'search' button in nautilus makes it unreadable because of the dark text on dark background combination.

Otherwise, great work!!

Sorry, I don't know what is the problem, so I don't know how to fix it. But I have now included an alternative metacity theme that works in Gnome Shell (reNIX GS).

Thanks for your comment.

True, I have tried it in ubuntu with Gnome shell and the window decoration doesn't works. Sorry but I don't know what is the problem. It is a metacity-1 theme, so I think it must works both in Unity and Gnome shell. But it doesn't. I hope somebody else know what is the problem and how to fix it.

Thanks for your comment.
