hi originalseed,

I just like your theme. But one question: could you also please make a gtk3-version from it for Gnome3?? I can't use gtk2-themes in Gnome3.

So could you please update this nice theme to gtk3 please??

Thanks from

There is a GTK3 theme in there. I tested it with Mint GNOME3, theme loaded fine.

What distro do you use?

I LOVE IT! Been using your DarkCold Themes in GTK2, Thought I was SOL when Mint went completely over to GTK3. Obviously not. Now, if I could only figure out how to "fix" the window frames in cinnamon to match what they look like in Gnome, since gnome-shell doesn't seem to support your panels (yet?). Thanks for your dedication.
