Description:

Arc-Dark-SLATE is the new flat, dark-mode theme with a distinct, slate-blue hue. Sporting transparent elements, this new theme accomidates GTK, xfwm4, openbox-3, GNOME-Shell, and Cinnamon desktop environments.

Arc theme was 2020's most popular theme, as it has been for the past couple of years, according to major sources: (August 2, 2020) https://www.ubuntupit.com/top-15-best-gnome-shell-themes-gnome-desktop. For this reason, the developers have taken mindful care to keep every element in line with what Arc fans would appreciate. The result, we believe, delivers maximum comfort and readability to users; while simultaneously looking robust and elegant.


Special thanks to horst3180 at: https://github.com/horst3180/Arc-theme, for initially advancing Arc, and for inspiration. Further thanks to NicoHood at: https://github.com/NicoHood/arc-theme, for keeping Arc alive and great, more currently.


Manual Installation Is Easy:

1) Extract the "zip" 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.

Logging out and then logging back in may be necessary on some operating systems to fully implement themes.
Last changelog:

22-11-20: Version 1.5 5 months ago

This updater introduces bleeding edge version 3.38 for both SLATE flavors, to accommodate major changes in the newest operating systems. Modifications to the new 3.38 version include 478 adjustments versus earlier version. This exhaustive upgrade was due to recent shifts in the GTK/GNOME ecosystem, namely the arrival of GNOME 3.38. Since most users are still on earlier versions, the original variant will still be retained, and refreshed, for the foreseeable future. Commit: 3e084a

10 This theme is champion! A minor issue is when using the terminal with multiple tabs. The tab in focus doesn't stand out well enough. Hope you would have time to fix this issue. Thanks

This theme got a "10" rating from me - like most others also put here. Furthermore no one else here wants you to change the perfectly "normal" dark panel. Hence, please ignore the odd request from the person below me. I LOVE THIS THEME - AND HAVE BECOME DEPENDENT ON IT. Bless your team!!

Really nice, but "Activities" bar I would have preferred it in line with the colors of the theme

My eyes dazzle after the darkgray themes. This is not the case with blue shades. Thank you.

Looking forward to the new icons, I hope they're as complete as your main arc icons. This is, as the person below stated, "a very clean looking theme." A highly pleasing shade of slate-blue.

Thank you; they are the matching icons & folders that will be released in five days (they just didn't make it into this week's update). There will also be two varieties, Dark & Extra-Dark, to choose from.

16-04-20: Version 1.4.3 1 year ago

Both theme variants received updates, with significant enhancements. Arc-Dark-SLATE and Arc-Extra-Dark-SLATE were modified to have the respective SLATE hue replace the white hue vis-a-vis App-Grid text. Additionally, both Arc-Dark-SLATE and Arc-Extra-Dark-SLATE saw changes for the 'Hover' and 'Active' elements vis-a-vis "modal-dialog-linked-buttons," "notification-banners," "notification-buttons," and the "hotplug-notification-items," Commit: 02012e

27-03-20: Version 1.4.2 1 year ago

Both variants received updates. Arc-Dark-SLATE and Arc-Extra-Dark-SLATE were modified to have the respective SLATE hue replace the white hue vis-a-vis sliders and scrollbars. Additionally, Arc-Extra-Dark-SLATE saw changes for primary button elements, to better coordinate with the hex values of the rest of the theme variant. Here, hues were muted (saturation and hex values reduced), in order to achieve desired effect. Commit: 7615c0

19-03-20: Version 1.4.1 1 year ago

Both variants received modifications. Here, the GTK2 tool-tips element was changed from a white background with dark slate text to a dark slate background with off-white text. Additionally, the GNOME-Shell had the base slate-blue hue applied to app indicator elements, where they used to be white. Commit: 4f6ae0

17-01-20: Version 1.4 1 year ago

272 modifications, across all platforms, to improve definition, as well as, enhance menu functionality. Commit: 1288a4
