Hello folks,

Some time ago ~llewton uploaded a GTK2 theme for me. This theme was called "g" and can be found here.

I have now made a matching GTK3 version. Of course, I can't make it look 100% the same, but I did my best to make it as close as possible. I think you will only notice the difference when you have one GTK2 window open and one GTK3 and start comparing. (i.e. you will see differences when using The Widget Gallery)

You should note that the theme is not completed just yet. It's good enough for every day use, it's just that I don't have many GTK3 applications installed so I couldn't thoroughly test it myself. I tested the theme with: Nautilus, EOG, Transmission, Gnome Terminal and Cheese. Most of the theme is done, except for GtkCalendar and some menu options that I can't seem to find in any of the above mentioned applications. Also, I don't use Nautilus and when tested, I didn't make it take over my desktop. This means that when you have Nautilus take over the desktop, the icons it draws can display the text weird. If this is the case, give me a screenshot and I will properly theme this.

The GTK3 theme comes bundled with the GTK2 and OB themes initially made by ~llewton. I asked for her permission, which was granted. All credit for the GTK2 and OB themes belong to her. I also want to thank ~satya164 for his help when I got stuck on some things.

Installation instructions:

You can install themes for only one user, or for every user on your computer. The latter requires root permissions, so keep your password ready when doing this.

1. Extract the .zip file.
2. Move the contents of the .zip file either to $HOME/.themes (one user), or to /usr/share/themes/ (all users, requires root password)

Bugs and/or glitches?

Should you notice any (they are there!), please report them here or send me a note and if possible, supply a screenshot so I can see what's wrong. I will try to fix it as soon as possible.

Really Nice :D But tell me one thing: why are you using gnome with dwm? is it possible? in the past i tried to use awesome wm on KDE but everything was slower...what are your impressions about this mix (GNOME+DWM)?

I don't use DWM inside GNOME. I just use the GNOME applications (Nautilus, EOG etc) in an X session with DWM as WM.

Works pretty good :)
