DeLoreanDark3.10_8.05232014 by killhellokitty DeLoreanDark3.10_8.05232014 by killhellokitty
This version has been built on top of the 3.8 version the Adwaita Theme.

Wallpaper is Linescape by Tectix.
Icons are 'F-Dark Faenza'.

DeLorean-Dark-3.10 is designed to be sleek and less complicated than the previous 3.8-version; with its high polish and dramatic contrasts.  3.10's backdrop state resembles a pencil sketch, while its normal state sports multi-toned metallic surfaces.

INCLUDES
  • Gtk2 & Gtk3 Themes
  • Metacity/Mutter/Unity Themes
  • Xfwm4 Theme
  • Xfce-Notify Theme
  • Ubuntu Software Center Theme

REQUIREMENTS
  • gtk-3.10.* (3.8 compatible, see bellow ***)
  • gtk-2.24.17(or newer)
  • gtk-engine-unico - latest available version
  • pixbuf-engine or the gtk(2)-engines package
  • gtk-engine-murrine-0.98.2(or newer)

INSTALATION
  • Download the Delorean-Dark Theme package from the top of this page.
    Unzip the archive, and copy the delorean-3.10 folder to '/usr/share/themes/' for system-wide installation, or to '~/.themes' for individual use installation****.
  • Arch Linux & Manjaro
    Install from Arch Linux AUR
    If using yaourt, type in terminal: yaourt -S delorean-dark-3.10
  • Ubuntu I am no longer maintaining the killhellokitty PPA.  Instead check-out Noobslab.com.  
    Trusty Tahr 14.04 the bugs have been squashed.  The Window-Manger Theme is now working. has a great many issues when using this theme.  
    Including the window manager theme doesn't work.  I do not know if or when this bug will be addressed.  
    Do not submit bug reports at this time.  Thank You
 
FIREFOX & THUNDERBIRD
Unpack the DeLorean-Dark theme package and locate the Firefox and Thunderbird files. You will find a 'chrome' folder inside of each.  Next go to '~/.mozilla/firefox/xSomeNumbers.default' and for Thunderbird go to '~/.thunderbird/xSomeNumbers.default'.
  • If there is no 'chrome' folder, just copy and paste the appropriate one form inside the DeLorean theme package.
  • If there is a 'chrome' folder, merge its contents with the appropriate 'chrome' folder from within the DeLorean theme package.
  • Restart Firefox or Thunderbird to apply the theme.
User Profile  You may also desire to create a new User-Profile for the DeLorean Themes since they hard-code the look of both applications.  To do this simply open either app with a trailing '-p', for example: firefix -p
a small gui will appear.  Choose create profile and follow the instructions.  If you would like this gui to appear at every start-up(recommended) so you can choose your profile un-tick 'Don't ask at startup', or you can always start the app with the '-p' to change profiles again.

CHANGE THE COLOR
The selected color for both Gtk2 & Gtk3 themes are now made to be easily changed!
Here is what you will need to do...
  • Gtk2 go to /usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-3.10/gtk-2.0 and open the gtkrc file in your favorite text editor.
  • Go to line #5 (gtk-color-scheme = "bg_color:#2c2c2c\nselected_bg_color:#016295") and replace '#016295' with the hex color of your choosing.
  • Save and close.
  • Gtk3 go to /usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-3.10/gtk-3.0 and open the gtk-main.css file in your favorite text editor.
  • Go to line # 4 (@define-color theme_selected_bg_color #016295) and replace '#016295' with the color of your choosing.
  • Save and close.
Thats it! Enjoy!!!
CHANGELOG
3-10-2014  a lot of work on the backdrop state.  
3-13-2014  many, many fixes and changes.  Nemo-File-Browser is now themed.  Only a couple items left to address for Gtk3, then move on to Gtk2.
3-16-2014  First BETA release!  Fixes, Fixes, Fixes! Unity is now themed. Gtk3 is finished for now.  Gtk2 will be in next update.
3-20-2014  Theming of Gtk2 has been completed. whew!  There have been a few fixes for Gtk3 as well.  The Panel for xfce/lxde still requires attention and Metacity and Mutter. 
3-21-2014  Mutter is themed and finished for Gnome-Shell.  Fixed the 'info' colors in gtk3.  Still have Metacity2 for Ubuntu and the Panel to theme.
3-26-2014  Metacity(2) is themed.  Xfwm4 is themed, I reworked the 3.6-version.  Ubuntu-Software-Center is themed.  Xfce-Notify is themed.  Reworked the themes colors. Nautilus Tabs have had a lot of polishing as well as Nautilus-Search.
3-31-2014  Nautilus Toolbar, lots and lots of changes!  I added more colors into the mix, not sure about how I like it yet.  Feedback would be great!  
The design removes some of the push-button images and leaves just the Icons instead.  I think this makes nautilus easier to work with and cleaner in appearance.  I am not a fan of the wall of multi-purpose push-buttons stretching the length of the window. I mixed things up.  Hope its well recieved.
4-05-2014  Inputs/Entrys are newly designed to have better compatibility with 3rd-party apps.  Epiphany is redesigned in similar fashion as Nautilus.  I have added a Focused state to the Tabs in Epiphany.  Gnome-Terminal the active tab is now the same color as the terminal-work-area.  Also a hand-full of minor fixes throughout.
4-15-2014  First Stable Release.  Fixed bug with unreadable text when renaming a file within Nautilus or Nemo.  Most notable changes are the addition of both a Firefox and Thunderbird themes.
5-23-2014  Unity window manager theme is fixed, and Ubuntu centric fixes have been applied.


***There is a bug when choosing Nautilus(Files) to manage the desktop(show icons). bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cg…
I believe I have made a workaround for this bug.  At least in Gnome-Shell it works.  Unfortunately the fix only works with 3.10, not for 3.8.

****Metacity/Mutter may not work properly when installed to '~/.themes'.

Please submit bug reports.  Thank You.

Give DeLorean a test drive; you deserve it!
Your feedback is always welcome.

Hi I'm using Delorean dark theme in Ubuntu 14.04 Unity standard and I like it can you please tell me how can I replace the background color when renaming the folder or a file it's always grey and with grey-white font it doesn't look distinctive. I want to make background black color instead. This is what I mean:

Add this to the end of the .entry section, around line 350.
NautilusCanvasViewContainer.view EelEditableLabel.entry {
background-image: none;
background:black;
}

that will do the trick in Nautilus.
Cheers!

Thank you so much for this elegant and beautiful theme! I have a couple of questions, and I hope they are not to bothersome or presumptuous:

1. It seems the text input fields are often gray in the theme, and unfortunately this carries over into my browser and text editor, making it difficult on occasion to read what I write. In hexchat (oddly enough) my input field gets a blue background. I can understand these may be a features and not a bugs, but could you explain which parameters need to be changed to undo this?

2. When I open nautilus and press search, the search field gets a baby-blue background which certainly doesn't fit the theme. Maybe you missed this spot?

3. In almost every way I prefer 3.10 to 3.8, but there are exceptions: I would like to have the background of nautilus be darker so that it has more contrast with the frame; at the moment it seems too similar to the lovely metalic texture.

Many thanks,
Ixxie

All i wanted to do was duck into the site, grab a quick dark theme to put on my new mint install and keep going. But when i came in here i felt compelled to stop and login,and leave you a message. The problem you have created for me is that your themes are all bloody gorgeous! How can one choose? I am a fan of dark themes and i believe you have set the benchmark. Thankyou so much for sharing your talent with us.

A Gnome-Shell theme is possible, time willing.  At least you can change this theme's color to green, if you choose. 
Every DeLorean theme Gnome bumb is different.   I like to keep it fluid.

Could you please explain how the distribution file is versioned? I want to package it for my linux distribution and the version looks odd to me. What does each component in the version mean?
Reply
:iconkillhellokitty:
killhellokitty Featured By Owner May 9, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
This is built for Gnome3.10 and equivalent Unity, Cinnamon, etc.  It is mostly backward compatible with Gnome3.8.  Then number after them 3.10 is in this case a 7 which stands for the number of builds since it left Beta. and the last set of numbers is the actual date of publishing for this particular build(7).
As far as extras included within the theme, Noobslab for Ubuntu removes them from their package.

The requirements are the least necessary.  And listed as individual packages even if some distributions choose bundle them.
I hope this answers your questions.  Please feel free to contact me if you require anything further.
Out of curiosity, what distribution are you looking to package for?
Cheers!

I am now at Fedora 20 with gnome-shell 3.10.4, Firefox 29 and Thunderbird 24.5. Theme version is DeLorean-Dark-3.10_7.04162014.

I haven encountered some "visual unpleasantness" in the new Firefox and Thunderbird themes, though. The themes were installed as per your instructions, yet I still use my previous profiles.

1. Firefox:
I use several add-ons with icons like the ebay sidebar. After installing your Firefox theme, the icons from the extensions are no longer displayed in the toolbar. The empty space is still visible (and click-able) in the toolbar, but the icon is just a grey-ish square.
(Just for the record, after removing the new css files from DeLorean theme, they are back.)

2. Thunderbird:
a) The toolbar icons consume - in my opinion - more vertical screen space than they should. Is it possible to move the small option list triangle (like with the Get Mail icon) back to the right side of the core icon? I have more than enough horizontal toolbar space available in my toolbar.
b) In the message list pane for a given mail folder, I use tag colours. Before, when tagging a message with a tag associated with - say - red colour, the message list would show the message subject date etc. in the font colour of the selected tag. Now, this font colouring dosn't work anymore. Is there a way to get this function back?
(And again for the records, removing the css files restored the previous apperance.)

Yes, the updates to Firefox 29 and Thunderbird 24.5 break the the respective themes that come in the package.  I will fix these sometime in the near future, as time allows.  In the mean time I would advise to downgrade both Firefox and Thunderbird, or choose another theme to use specifcally with them.  I truly appreciate you bringing this to my attention.

No I am fine.  Mozilla changed the actual build of the browser/mail-client rather than the skin theme. Nobody's themes pre FF29 or TB24.5 will work in the latest versions.

Superduper theme as ever mate, apart from the Nemo desktop bug I've noticed that when you rename a file in Nemo the text is near enough the same colour as the background so you can't see what you're typing.

Only installed it today (happy with 3.8 to be fair lol), so nothing further but I'll keep looking haha

Spec-Chum Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014
Definitely this one.  You don't realise how dark 3.8 is until you put 3.10 on.  Too dark for me, when you realise how perfect this one is.

Speaking of dark, on websites like aur.archlinux.org/packages/ when the previously used search options come up they're black text on a dark grey background.  You can read them but having white or a light grey text would be better IMHO.

I have two rather unrelated questions...

1st. In delorean 3.8 in Cinnamon, the System Settings bottom area is too bright. Do you know anything about that?

2nd. Is there anything more I'll need to theme LXDE? This is a GTK+ theme, so I'll just need a panel image and an Icon theme right?

Thank you very much for making this...it's by far my favorite theme and is installed on all new Linux boxes I own :)

:iconkillhellokitty:
killhellokitty Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Hi,
At the bottom of Cinnamon System Settings is a Toolbar designed to be at the top of a widget not the bottom.  Unfortunatly there is nothing to be done about it.  Sadly, its a design flaw.

LXDE, you are correct.  The theme has a default panel and as per the Panel instructions on the DeLoreand-3.8 page; you can take advantage of 3 different panel-image designs that come with the theme. Or load your own.  Select an Icon-theme and everything else should work fine.

Thank you, and I'm glad to here that you enjoy the theme!
Cheers!

it's me again ;)
Since my last update to (delorean-dark-3.10 BETA_6.04052014-1) my thunderbird isn't readable anymore.
The list with the mails is so dark that the letters are not readable. (Like the problem with HexChat before). Did you changes something there?

LOL!...alright here is what you need to do:
Do exactly as you did before to open the 'gtkrc' file.
  • Next go to line #1581 "base[NORMAL]     = "#242424"
  • Change hex-color from "#242424" to "#7b7b7b"
Save and close.
Or you could wait for the next update ;-)
Cheers, and thank you for helping to improve the theme!

No Problem, I will go on reporting Problems ;)

After changing the base value its ok again.

The tabs in Thunderbird are very white, maybe you can have a look at this.

Another thing in Firefox: Firefox changes the color of minor important parts of the URL, these are only hardly readable.

I work with HexChat (hexchat.github.io/) very often. I don't know with type they use for their input field but the text I typed there is so dark that I can't read it.
