Medium grey GTK2+3 themes?

Hi.
I'm looking for medium grey GTK2+3 themes. Dark themes like delorean-dark are too distracting + eyestrain inducing (and textboxes tend to look weird),  light grey themes like Elementary are too bright.

yaourt, gnome-look, and google searches have not been very helpful..

I was looking at this ("covert" theme):

which is close to what I'm looking for (medium grey everywhere not just the menus, flat) , but is GTK2 only. To me, it is reminiscent of DeluxePaint or Grafx2.
Most recently, I found 'Animus-grey' ('animus-themes' on AUR) and am using it experimentally.  Overall, it has too many dark areas, but is the closest I've come so far:

Ideally

Do you have a favorite grey theme? Or heck, do you have *a* grey theme?

Re: Medium grey GTK2+3 themes?

Thanks, I didn't realize that xfce themes also covered GTK 2 and 3.. I came across that and had ignored it since it said XFCE. It looks pretty good, more balanced than any others I have found so far. Uses some gradients but very judiciously.

In the meantime, I had found zen-gtk-themes, which is kind of similar, particularly 'zen-griza'.

Neither of these is as close to medium grey as I'd hoped, but I'm beginning to think there are unavoidable contrast problems with medium-grey and that's why nobody much makes real medium-grey themes.

How about the MediterraneanNight theme set? They are available in the AUR.

Or, grab the Oxide theme and there is a mod version of the MediterraneanNight theme there that looks very similar to what you are looking for.

Woah, thanks a lot! MediterraneanNight-mod2 is pretty much exactly what I was looking for! It's even completely desaturated, which is great for graphics work big_smile

Be sure to checkout the maintenance fork of Mediterranean:

Re: Medium grey GTK2+3 themes?

MediterraneanNight appears to be defunct (including the maintenance fork) -- many missing elements, with recent GTK3 releases. Any suggestions on a similar theme that is equally moderate in appearance, while looking sensible with GTK 3.19?
