I've just installed the theme and I'm getting a white line in every window between the title bar and the menu bar. Do you have any idea why it might be? Screenshots look fantastic, congratulations on your work!

This is a wonderful theme, I love it! There is one little issue with it though: The icons in the Bluefish text editor change size when hovering over them; it's quite stressful. I got this on my notebook at work as well as the computer at home (using ArchLinux and Fluxbox). I've tried searching for something in the config files that could explain that behaviour but since I'm not familiar with the GTK theme files I didn't find anything. When using another theme, the issue goes away. Also it doesn't seem to be caused by the icon theme (I use Faenza, btw). I've tested it with another icon theme and the problem persists...

In anyway, thanks for your great work! :)

Cheers,
Air

There's a bug with hover buttons. A border appears on them and the whole dialog "moves"... As if the button takes more real estate when in hover state because of the border. How to fix that?

Inspired by Blackemon67 I've dug around and tried to fix up my own Elegant Brit 3.4 baggypants12000.deviantart.com/art/Elegant-Brit-3-4-320158197 I've edited the old theme as opposed to starting from scratch

This theme is awesome. I've been using it since I found it, but now I've updated to gnome-shell 3.4 and it doesn't work anymore =(

Please, please, pleaaaase, update it!

Also, it you'd set up a donation page, I'm sure a lot of people would donate (me included)!

I second the port to GTK 3.4, this why the theme is broken on gnome 3.4.

You actually might have a much easier time using the unico engine, I had a good starting point with the "NIX" theme for gtk 3.4. I just am not experienced enough to know what i'm doing.

Amazing theme, I love it! It works great on Linux Mint too.

But on Arch and Xubuntu with Xfce I have some problems with it.
Some elements have white background and text. Especially on the panels: [link]
If I hover over theme, it is displayed properly. Perhaps I am not installing it right? I just copy the archive contents to ~/.themes

Also, window title bar doesn't get changed. in Xfce it is handled by different setting in Settings->Window Manager, but Elegant Brit doesn't show up in the themes list.

Please, can you advise how to fix this? Thanks!

Would you mind giving me a hint where in the CSS for GTK 3 I can change the color or thickness of the white bar below the titlebar? Great theme though, I'm psyched because it's exactly the look I'm looking for!

Hiho,

ThanQ! for porting this awesome theme to gnome3!

one issue: Eclipse (or swt in general?) displays white text on white bg in the assist box :/ that's kind of really driving me mad :D

Could you give me a tip what file I have to edit? I'm running Linux Mint 12 with gnome3 and gtk2 (i think).

peace

I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 and gnome 3.2 and for some reason gtk2 apps will not use the theme, they just use the default gnome theme which is very ugly

I've probably lost those icons in a hard-drive incident :P. I'll try making similar icons now that I've learnt a little bit of inkscape, but that'll be after exams. :)

That's actually VERY common, having sources lost has happened more times than you could imagine. Which makes a really good argument for uploading your work as you go along.

Thank you for the great theme. I posted something on gnome-look.org already.

I have more questions now ;) How can I have your Nautilus browser (or is it Nautilus). Looks really cool. Also in your first screen shot, I notice that the window names are styled with a red bar below, but mine doesn't. I'm using fedora 16. Can you help me please :(

There's one more bug: sometimes Activities screen is stretched, hiding the right part. It looks like this:

I'm not positive, but I think that's Marlin, not Nautilus.
