I copied the two files in there to /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/ and then created a file called settings.ini in ~/.config/gtk-3.0 with the info metioned before. What do I need to do in /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/ ?

Firefox uses gtk2. Just use the included gtk2 Adwaita theme.

For root theme, please search before asking.

I changed them both to the same theme in the gnome tweak tool. The gtk3 apps look right but the gtk2 apps stay light. If I try to change the gtk2 apps to something else it still stays the same no effect at all. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. It seems like anything I do it just stays the same (except the window borders they change).

Re: [Gnome3] Dark GTK3 theme from Adwaita!

I don't think gnome tweak tool changes gtk2 settings at all.

I tried it again rebooted still no luck. Even tried to change it with lxappearance still nothing. I am starting to think maybe I messed something up on my system. I don't know what's going on.

did you change the file in /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/ ?

I copied the two files in there to /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/ and then created a file called settings.ini in ~/.config/gtk-3.0 with the info metioned before. What do I need to do in /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/ ?

backup of the original gtkrc in the /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0 folder, and then

mv /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc-dark  /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

because i wanted to keep the original theme untoched i copied the folder Adwaita to /home/user/.themes/Adwaita-dark, chmod to user and edited the index.theme, after that the tweak-tool had the option to change the current theme and gtk+ theme to Adwaita-dark (i did this only because i'm changing everything and if i screw up i can return to the original theme)

 /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc-dark 

. Could someone please tell me where to find this file, or if you have it in your installation could you please attach it for me here, I badly need it and i couldnt find it in the latest git builds of gnome-themes-standard. Please help, I will really appreciate.

Thanks but thats too dark, I was hoping for a similar alternative to the following gtk3 dark :
DarkGtk3Adwaita:http://imagepaste.nullnetwork.net/viewimage.php?id=2504

But here is how your gtkrc produces for my system
Gtk2dodo3773:http://imagepaste.nullnetwork.net/viewimage.php?id=2505
I appreciate your help, but could i get the DarkGTK3Adwaita version, please.

My gtk3 is the same. I wanted more black then grey. I looked at the pkgbuild from the aur. The files you are looking for are at git://git.gnome.org/gnome-themes-standard. So, just run

git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-themes-standard

and you should have all the source files for this theme.

I was looking for the file

 /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc-dark

I have cloned into the git repository you provide but still no lack. If you look at my first post in this thread, I have quoted a posting where a user moved the above file to replace

/usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

file. So am looking for the gtkrc-dark file, coz I cant see it in my system.

Re: [Gnome3] Dark GTK3 theme from Adwaita!

So many comments, did anyone actually try to read my PKGBUILD from the AUR? The last few lines of the package() function is what generates gtkrc-dark.....

Oh, wow the answer really is simple. Thanks ngoonee. I did not even think of that. My "gnome-themes-standard" is actually "gnome-themes-standard-git" from the aur.

If you read his first post, its obvious he has the one from the repos. This is to be expected because gnome-themes-standard-git doesn't currently build properly (and I have no motivation to fix it due to it depending on various *-git packages). It should work just fine with the upcoming 3.2 release.

Why are you here then? This isn't a general support forum, and Ubuntu is sufficiently different from Arch that unless we know you're running it we're likely to be missing important differences. And if we DO know you're running it, we'd still most likely not know how Ubuntu does their 'thing'. Please ask in ubuntuforums.org instead, they know what you're running and will be able to help you more.

Case in point. git clone has nothing to do with aur/repos etc. Go to our wiki, search 'AUR', and hopefully you'll see why the question you're asking doesn't make sense. Which just demonstrates that you should be asking/searching in the right places.

Re: [Gnome3] Dark GTK3 theme from Adwaita!

It might be entirely superfluous as I didn't notice that there were others already in this thread, but I made my own GTK2 "port" of the dark Adwaita theme (for GTK3.2) today, based on Clearlooks-DarkOrange.

I'm sure its code is rather half-assed, but the colors do agree nicely:
sp8k2s.jpg

Clearlooks-DarkAdwaita, downloadable here.

edit: Less abstruse is of course to simply copy the "bright" /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and alter the values in its gtk-color-scheme-line to those given in …/gtk-3.0/gtk-dark.css:

gtk-color-scheme = "base_color:#4F524F\nfg_color:#eeeeec\ntooltip_fg_color:#eeeeee\nselected_bg_color:#3465a4\nselected_fg_color:#eeeeec\ntext_color:#EEEEEC\nbg_color:#363B3B\ntooltip_bg_color:#000000"

That works then. Time to update the AUR package to mention that and remove the symlinks.

I don't have a gtk-3.0 dir in my .config path. created it and it works

Thanks for this GTK2 theme misc. It indeed looks nice together with the dark Adwaita GTK3 theme!

There are two things that I would like to know how to fix. The first being the gradient in the tabs, which I find to stand out a bit too much and which does not at all look like the flat tabs of Adwaita. The other is how to make the Adwaita window theme in Gnome Shell put the dark border (used for the GTK3 apps) around the GTK2 windows as well. Does anyone have any ideas?

Re: [Gnome3] Dark GTK3 theme from Adwaita!

@hadrons123
I'm not sure what state gnome is in, e.g., whether or not you can set the prefer dark bit in the gui or not. Using settings.ini, to go back to normal Adwaita for gtk3 apps you'd just change the prefer dark setting to false in settings.ini And for the gtk2 theme, I'd recomend you comment out the gtk-color-scheme line misc's theme is replacing, then add misc's text under it. That way when you want to go back you can just comment misc's text and uncomment the original. Hope that was clear.
