Looking for a GTK+3 Theme suggestions
Hey guys,

I hope this is the right forum to post this.

Now, I'm not strictly looking for an opinion, so I hope this does not turn into a flame war. BUt browsing I have not found what I'm looking for. I bet what I want is like a buried gem.

I'm looking for a pleasing theme, well, one pleasing to me (and I'm guessing others do to if what I want exists).
What I'm looking for are some suggestions on a GTK+ 3 theme, based on the following:
- Preferably has a similar GTK+ 2 theme.
- Has some color. And that color something other than the overdone blue or ubuntu orange. I'm tired of finding themes that are monochromatic in any color, and especially grey at that. If they do have color, some are quite garish.
- Has some distinction between UI elements. A lot of themes I find have very little contast between the window/background container and a control (button/dropdown list/etc). Zikitwo is similar to what I'm looking for, but the white is to much.
- Plays nicely with Mutter themes that support GTK colors.

Thanks for any of your suggestions.

Anything else?

bloody, I said I hadn't found anything of interest at, and was wondering if someone knew about a hidden gem that might fit the bill. I know they're out there.

Well, you were specifying alot of criteria there. I can tell you that i like "greybird" from shimmerproject alot, because it's a mixture of not-too-bright and not-too-dark, but you've mentioned that you don't want anything grey-ish.

You're not making it easy for anyone to provide you with a satisfying answer, so i suggest that you're on your own with this. At least you're not having some serious problem with your computer which would cry for help. No offense, but we're not a free in-depth eyecandy research agency here, but just other users who might be willing to help with solutions for computer problems.

Thanks for your input bloody, I guess I did post at the wrong place. I'm going to mark this is solved as it's apparent this was a bad idea, I just got tired to seeing the same stuff over and over and was looking for opinions as I figured maybe someone else would share my preference.

And yes, I am aware you help with technical problems here, as I've helped with quite a few myself. No where does this say strictly technical problems, so I figured I'd give it a shot, seeing as it's so technical as to have a screen shot subforum.
