Beautiful. Still do not understand how the metacity-theme-3.xml works, but I'll take it as a template to create new themes. It rocks!

Same here, metacity-theme-3.xml has nothing to do with my theme. I copied it over from Mint-X and my theme started working.... if you figure out why is that, please let me know :)

Hi,

Thanks for your work on this theme.

Unfortunately, I don't manage to install it on Ubuntu Gnome 14.04.

There is no directory called DarkCold4 in the v1.5 archive I downloaded here. That directory is referred to in the following instruction:

"1. Copy DarkCold4 dir to /usr/share/themes"

Please could you explain what's missing or what I'm doing wrong?

TIA if so. :-)

I am sorry, I did not update the instructions.

Just unpack the zip to your /usr/share/themes
when you unpack it there you should have darkcold-master dir.

To set up the theme you will need "Tweak Tool".

On Ubuntu 14.04 in Nautilus the icon text all of a sudden gets very large, switching to list view then back to icon view corrects it for a while, then it does it again. Everything else is fine. Any ideas?

I'm using gnome fallback (flashback) w/compiz. A few other themes do this also, but some don't.

This theme rocks. And when added transparency it looks like black glass. The theme is ruling my desktop for months.
But gnome panel is not consistent, few part glassy like indicator appmenu, systray and other part not. Is there a way to make the whole panel look alike? There must be!!
Here is the screenshot if you have time to look at

Thanks in advance

My PNG Image I use as a wallpaper disappears when using the theme in Gnome Shell. My desktop background turns grey. It appears that my wallpaper is still there but being covered by the grey.
