Description:

Great news: ChromeOs-Dark is finally releasing ''Stable' versions; and, likewise, is now available for download on GTK-Linux. Four fabulous Material Design flavors have been going through extensive testing, the past couple of months; and, at last, we can all start enjoying them. A half dozen more flavors are still in testing; hence, soon, there will be even more to choose from. ChromeOs-Dark is the new, highly anticipated - GTK, xfwm4, GNOME-Shell, and Cinnamon- Dark Mode Theme grounded on Material Design standards; and aims to bring a warm, colorful, and elegant experience to your desktop.

Choose from the four official-based hues of: ChromeOS-Marsala, ChromeOS-Oceanic, ChromeOS-Slate, and ChromeOS-UltraViolet. All four flavors are available in both 'Dark' and 'Darker' modes.

***The 'Darker' Flavors also have an additional full-theme-version with extra dark menus, notification-banners, and dialogs.***

Over the last couple of years, Google has been moving towards a unified user experience with its Material Design interface. It started with Android, and we’ve seen many Google Apps—like Drive, Docs, and Sheets—get this clean, modern makeover. Chrome (and, by extension, Chrome OS) has seen touches of Material Design here and there, but many of these design remakes have still been in testing.

Notably, Google’s developers have recently been working diligently on creating “Dark Mode” Chrome for Desktop. They have been implementing bits and pieces for dark themes, for some time; but these latest updates are good indicators that Chrome and Chrome OS will soon be very adept at handling dark mode across the board. There’s still some fine tuning to be done, but overall, it looks great; and lots of users are really excited to see it starting to land in 'Stable' so they can go fully lights out on their Chromebooks. These first four releases, for GTK-Linux, are all tuned up and ready to go.

Material Design makes better use of grid-based layouts, responsive animations and transitions, padding and depth effects, such as, lighting and shadows. In desktop Chrome, Material Design is limited to a more rounded appearance, which currently excludes rounder tabs that first appeared in developer builds of the browser in April 2018. Most importantly, we can start enjoying ChromeOs dark mode, on GTK-Linux. Special thanks to the The Chrome team for their inspiration, expertise and contributions.


Manual Installation Is Easy:

For themes: 1) Extract the "tar.xz" file into your "~/.themes/" folder - to install for current user only - or into the "/usr/share/themes/" folder - for the theme to be applied globally. 2) Use the GNOME Tweak Tool or an equivalent app to enable it for your desktop.

What is the difference between general version and 3.36 version? I'm using GNOME 3.28. Will 3.36 work on it?

Hi, I work on the team. The file that says "All other operating systems (including earlier GNOME)" is for earlier than GNOME 3.36. Hence, you need that one for GNOME 3.28. Cheers, Rikard.

Nice to see coloring! Finally can side with this, Am hoping to be back soon with my own again. Am also hoping you will take a look at last themes I produced as may help in reducing lines in gtk. Still I commend you as is quite a bit of effort you have taken here and hope no one will give any negativity to you, so you will continue your creativity. I know as last efforts I made took months. I just hope I can help> Once again great to see great works like this!

Thank you for the input, BBOSAK2143, and inspiration! No doubt, some of your Cyana work will continued to be missed (by Solarized junkies). Your work displays you have shied away from flat themes; so I'll take it to heart that you compliment the one here. Much of the Cyana, the BeiTanbro, and even the some of the Black Beauty works, are surely art in their own right. PM me, sometime; I would love to collaborate, when you get the notion in the future.

Great, so many variants, I love the fact that it doesn't have too be always in "full black" mode, but you can set a scheme with a better contrast. Plus all color schemes are very well adjusted. There are very few dark themes that aren't too dark for me. This one has some great options that are much more readable that typical black theme.

Yep, that was the idea - to be wholly original. I'm glad you put plenty of thought into it, and then turned out to be ultimately satisfied. Thanks for trying!
