Much better, though perhaps 2 pixels larger than with the GTK2 ones (again, checked with Gimp).

That does seem to fix that. :)

Speaking of nitpicks, I noticed the GTK3 text is ever so slightly paler than the GTK2 ones.

Hey guys just wanted to point out that Gnome 3.8 broke the theme, i am waiting for my base-theme Clearlooks-Phenix to release an update, once that's done i will fix this theme, just have patience =D

It works fine, except for the the fact that application menu bars are once again inconsistent between GTK2 and GTK3, in both height and the spacing between items (I prefer the GTK2 spacing).

That is definitely better, but the GTK3 menu bar now appears to be about 2 pixels too large (checked against each other in the GIMP) and GTK2 still allows for more horizontal space between entries.

Excuse my pedanticism. ;)

There are the now the same size, thank you. The horizontal space between entries is still different, but I suppose I could get used to that. It is not a real huge issue.

Thank you for putting up with my concerns.

Things are looking rather good now; only quibbles are with the buttons in GTK3 (which you commented on) and the fact that in GTK3 the menus and scrollbars have Clearlooks like themeing as opposed to what is seen in the GTK2 theme.

Tested on Fedora 18 Beta.

Nice, although I swear the colours in the menus are different, with the GTK3 one having a gradient. I also noticed one other knit to pick: the tooltips in GTk2 are now square bordered while GTK3 are round. Which is odd since it used to be the other way round for me, but anyway...

Keep up the good work!

I am going to be upgrading my my main machine to Fedora 18 once some new hardware arrives, so I am wondering if you have done anything interesting since we last discussed things.

Great work, although I do not understand the Firefox instructions you have in the description.

Main remaining problems I am experiencing:
1. Firefox and LibreOffice still show white text when menu selected
2. pavucontrol still has inconsistent background colours between items
3. The whole GTK3 button issue

I have not added any new features for the theme yet, but suggestions are welcome, so just point out if there's anything i should fix of add.
I am for the moment just waiting to see what will be broken when the next version of Gnome arrives ;)

Oh btw i have made an addon that adds a border to the top panel, just like in Gnome 3.0
you can grab it here http://unlogical.net/files/themes/Gnome/Extensions/panel.border@overflow.net.tar.gz
put it in /home/user/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
