Toying around with Openbox (Screenshot) by cbowman57
Toying around with Openbox (Screenshot)
Going to see if I can share this theme  Yeti (for openbox) 

Trying it out with adeskbar.
Yeti (for openbox) by cbowman57
Yeti (for openbox)
An attempt to share an openbox theme.

Bear with me, not sure what all needs to be packaged but this contains this wallpaper, the autostart file, tint2rc  .obt file for the theme.
The autostart file contains an entry for compton, so you'll need to comment it out or install compton if it's not already installed.

I probably forgot a few things, and please don't ask for explicit installation instructions.  I'm a n00b at openbox & googled everything I needed.

You will need gtk3 & gnome-themes-standard to use the Adwaita theme virtually everywhere.
Adwaita-Dark-3.12-rev.1 by cbowman57
Gnome shell theme styled after the 3.14 version
Dark Adwaita gtk-2.0 (Same as used in the 3.14 version, not near as exact a match on 3.12 but pretty close)
Adwaita gtk-3.0 with the gtk.css overwritten by the gtk-dark.css in case you don't want to bother switching global dark off & on.
A color hardcoded Elementary metacity that goes with the dark theme in case your gtk-2.0 doesn't want to adopt the dark colors of the dark gtk-3.0

3.14 version here Adwaita-Dark-3.14-rev.1
Adwaita-Dark-3.14-rev.1 by cbowman57
Dark gtk2, gnome shell theme & metacity that closely matches Adwaita Dark 3.14. (3.12 version here Adwaita-Dark-3.12-rev.1 )

In Gnome 3.14 the gtk2 must reside in the Adwaita theme folder, at least that's been my experience.

Ok, there seems to be some confusion about how to install & use this gtk-2.0.
1. If you use gtk3 3.14 it must reside in the /usr/share/themes/Adwaita folder. (Take it up with the people who wrote that code).
2. You can remove the existing gtk-2.0, or rename it to something like light-gtk2 and place this one in its place.
3. You can use links & have a directory called light-gtk2 and name this one dark-gtk2. Then you can just use (from an admin terminal) ln -nsf light-gtk2 gtk-2.0 for the original Adwaita gtk-.20 and ln -nsf dark-gtk2 gtk-2.0 for this dark one.
4. There are many ways to go about it, you can figure out the one that works for you.
5. If you use the ~/.themes shortcut the results will produce unwanted results.

Unless you recompile the gtk3 in 3.14 pointing gtk.css to gtk-container-dark.css I don't know how to get the gtk2 to use the dark metacity window border.  In 3.12 you can just use a text editor to tell gtk.css to use the dark widgets (or copy gtk-dark.css over gtk.css).  Another alternative is to hardcode the colors into the metacity.  I had partial success doing that, but there is a bug in some color changes I made. *see change log 10.5.14

I have included the necessary resource files for 3.14 & 3.14.1 if you go the compiling route.

Anyway, if you have questions or positive comments/suggestions feel free to make yourself heard.

Almost forgot, this is a revision of my Adwaita-Dark shell theme taking some styling cues from what I did with Yeti.  I think I like this version more than the original.

Change log:
Did the arrows again, better match to gtk3
Worked on gtk2 entry borders
Still looking for a solution to the white text shadow on some insensitive/disabled text.  Help!!!  =)
Did quite a few revisions to the image assets, primarily arrows, but touched on others as well, slider background, notebook.png & more.
Also tested gtk2 on 3.12 and it looks & works well.
Included a modified elementary metacity with hardcoded colors to match this theme & approximate Adwaita Dark
Couple minor shell improvements

Personal Quote: Damned if you do, damned if you don't
  • Mood: Frustrated
  • Drinking: Double shot latte
I make themes to please myself.
On the slim chance that others may like them I share them.
The job pays nothing.
People do download quite a few of them so I assume there is an audience for them.
If you don't like what I do, don't use my work.
If you want one done your way you can commission one & we can discuss ways that you can compensate me.

While many people freely help themselves to my work, the assholes that want to criticize it because it's not exactly what they want (for nothing) won't even bother to read this.
