This is, so far, the only GTK 3 theme I know that can remove the padding between top right corner and the "x" close button on maximized windows. Just one thing: is there some way to change its colors?

Report

Yay, another user who just wants to just hit the close button without having to carefully aim first ;)
The quick way to change the colors is to edit the file gtk-3.0/gtk.css inside the theme's folder. But please don't blame me, if it doesn't work in all places.

Do you mean those client side decorated windows like evince? If yes, what about the other windows? Do they have a normal shadow around the edges?

Thanks, its better now, no black frame, but now it's the opposite, without dark window border or how to say

I know, but sadly, client side decorations seem to be unable to draw proper shadows without compositing

Hi,

great theme, but for me, the selection in Nautilus (Files) is White (not transparent).

Thank you for you work!

Hi,
the theme is good and its also easy to read on the codebase. Grey is a popular color and the design is simple , but to be honest complicated design are not better at all.

Like the thin line patch very much. Did search for hours for it. Its one of the changes in gtk3.12 that are not understandable !!

regards bluedxca93

I think it could be easier if you could somehow find a way to sync this theme with Greybird (on github), perhaps a script that merely replaces menu bg and fg colors?..
Then you could perhaps also produce a dark variant with only titlebar, menubar and toolbar bgcolors the same as selected menu title (very dark grey) as an alternative to Ambiance ;-)

Thanks for the feedback.
What part is not compatible with Ubuntu 14.04?
I probably won't create a replacement script. There are more and more changes in GreyBird that I'm not willing to take into CobiBird.

Actually, maybe "not compatible" is not the right word, for there are only two or three issues that can be seen in this screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39189022/Cobibird.png
1) A white window border stopping at the titlebar edges.
2) A line between Nautilus titlebar and toolbar.
3) Imperfection in the edges of Nautilus location buttons.

Hi!

It seems that this great theme is not fully compatible with gtk 3.12 yet. Is it planned to release a new version fixing this? If not, I would like to ask that.

It is planned and it will come, but due to my dayjob, I don't have as much time as I would like. Please be patient.

After as tar.gz archive with the theme is loaded, you have to put in your home directory and run the following command in terminal:

sudo tar xvfz [name_file].tar.gz -C ~/.themes

Use this command in teminale:

sudo tar xvfz [file_name].tar.gz -C /usr/share/themes

To download a theme to the directory /usr/share/ themes need administrator rights. To do this, use the command in a terminal:

sudo chown login /usr/share/themes

Instead of the word login, add the name of your login.
You can then integrate the theme into the directory manually.
