Nokto-3.8 by cbowman57 Nokto-3.8 by cbowman57
Shell theme for Gnome 3.8 that includes the boje metacity (window) theme, a slightly modified zen-nokto GTK, & a set of ACYL icons that I think go well with the theme.

I tried to incorporate the styling cues of both themes, the colors were directed by the zen-nokto GTK. :)

I also themed the windows list extension, if anybody would use that let me know.

change log
Updated gtk to keep in sync with cedle's zen-nokto

Minor: Adjusted terminal text color
Minor: Adjusted metacity title color

Replaced GTK with cedle's 3.8 updated version.

Fixed Search entry on hover & focus
Changed size of panel font
Added annotation for magthe laptop mod (edit line 502 to adjust panel height)

A few more visual improvements
Incorprated a few assets from shell theme ACID

I’m the author of zen-nokto. My theme is actually not fully compatible with gnome 3.8. I’m making some change to fix it.

Hi cedle, thanks.

Though I haven't run into any problems with the Gtk yet.

Nice to meet you BTW. :)

Very nice theme indeed. Only thing I can find that's not as good as it could be is the colour of the text when typing into the search entry in the overview mode; the colour of the text is almost indistinguishable from the background.

I'll be damned. You're right. It was an oversight, I rarely use it and never noticed it before. :)

I'll get on it as I find time, if you already patched it I'd be happy to stick in right away.

Another thing I'd love to see: a bit more friendliness for laptop users.

Screen real estate is extremely valuable with a small screen and a large top panel, large icons, etc is simply wasteful. I've only managed to find a single theme that was really nice to use on my laptop (but unfortunately it hasn't been updated for 3.8 yet).

Anyway, I just thought I'd mention it since it's an opportunity to set your theme apart a bit from others and gain even more fans ;)

Interesting, I understand the desire for maximizing the screen real estate, but there's also the factor seeing the panel & icons on a smaller screen.

I rarely if ever use a laptop so don't pay much attention, but it sounds like I made an incorrect assumption in how they are used.

If you can describe what you're after in a way I can fully understand it, I could probably provide an optional gnome-shell.css for laptop users.
