Sable uses a carbon and black base with copper and turquoise accents.
SableNC uses carbon and black base with gray.
Icons are Flattr by DevianTN7k1
Please report Bugs!

Ubuntu Unity This theme doesn't work well in Unity due to Ubuntu's patched gtk3 and its use of a much older version of Nautilus.  I do not know how well it will work in 14.10.  But it works well in Ubuntu with Gnome-Shell. FIXED

thanks for your great work on delorean 3.8. do you plan to release the next version? it would be nice, i got used to see your theme in updates and enjoy the changes. i'd like to suggest you could make the theme more consistent - i mean the toolbars are in two styles - e.g. in nautilus and thunar. i prefer nautilus style. i think you should drop the glass elements (toolbar&toolbar buttons, taskbar) (leave them only in tabs). btw. active tab in gedit is dark blue, shouldnt it be black like in other apps? the last thing is color of selection on lists. in previous version of your theme it was lighter, more blue and i think it was better. of course you dont have to agree with my suggestions. im just saying because i want your theme to be the best theme ever. it has the chance, but currently its the second one, after the meditterranean dark theme, because its less consistent. btw. i've just made an account to contact you. i should have done it earlier because im also a designer, but of 3d graphics. ps.2. the most amazing thing in your theme is right-click menu and the selection - i love this!

After switching to crunchbang (debian) from xubuntu, your dorian-theme gtk2 theme did not work properly. Could you please add a single command to install your theme requirements (like apt-get blah,blah,and blah)? It's tough to try finding your requirement package names. Thanks!

dorian-theme is, in my opinion, the best dark linux theme currently available. Could you make an openbox theme for the dorian-retro theme? I don't enjoy using metacity for window borders.

killhellokitty Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Thank you for your kind words. I just finished the openbox themes for DeLorean-Dark-3.8, so yeah I can give it a try and see what I can come up with for Dorian. Please keep in mind that it is not possible to replicate the look of the dorian-retro theme in openbox. But, again I will see what I can come up with in the next few days.
-Cheers!

I would suggest reusing some elements of your delorean-dark openbox theme to try to make the dorian-retro theme(which will look very little like your metacity theme). Try to make window borders blend in with your gtk theme, like in Delorean-dark. Thanks!

A suggestion from me to try to vaguely replicate the look of the dorian-retro theme would be to reuse some of your delorean-dark openbox theme and use a darker blue color for the window buttons and menu entries. Try keeping consistent with the dorian-retro gradient. Thanks!
