DeLorean-Dark-Stripped-Themes-3.8 10042013 by killhellokitty DeLorean-Dark-Stripped-Themes-3.8 10042013 by killhellokitty
DeLorean-Dark-Stripped-Themes-3.8/3.9 ~ Join the dark side
Icons - F-Dark(Faenza)
Based on the Adwaita Theme.

The Stripped theme has everything DeLorean-Dark has, but without the bloat. It runs faster and uses fewer resources. The steel background image is gone, as are most pattern files. Other resource hogs have been removed as well such as individual tree-view cell borders. DeLorean has been stripped.

Theme folders are numbered 3.9. Currently the package is numbered as 3.8. I apologize for the confusion.</i>

Wow! This is way overdue, but better late than never right?  I'm running this on everything.  When it comes to beautifying Gnome, there is no substitute.  Combine it with the "Royal Blue" icon theme and it gets just that much better.

Ty for your outstanding work on this and the previous deLorean themes.

Thanks for the glowing compliment.  I needed that today.  I'll have to check out the "Royal Blue" icon theme, I'm the worst at finding cool icon
All my best! Cheers!

Thought I'd try this on my arch virtualbox install, it looks great. Definiatly going to use it on a real install on my hd.

However, in LibreOffice I find several settings windows difficult to read. The non-selected entries seem to use a black fount on a (very) dark grey background.
Would it be possible to use a somewhat lighter grey for the list control background?

I am aware of this particular issue.  I will see what I can do.  Thanks

This is now my preferred theme as it proved to be both lightweight and good-looking.

Indeed - very nice. Many thanks!
