The dark theme is still there, but is now called NumixSolarizedDark.

If it doesn't work, please submit it as an issue on my github.

EDIT: I just noticed that GitHub forks don't support issues.

I'll see if I can make it stop being a fork Github-wise

EDIT2: Repo now has a seperate issue tracker.

EDIT3: The dark theme doesn't work in this package at the moment. Bug noted, fix incoming.

No more dark theme?

I switched it over to my theme.

New things are this:

The theme is now called NumixSolarized, not Numix Solarized Light.
The dark variant is called NumuxSolarizedDark, not Numix Solarized.

This means, you'll have to re-select it in whatever app you use for that (lxappearance or similar).

Else it should be pretty similar and work with gtk-3.20

Okay, you are now the maintainer of this package, whether you want to or not.

I recreated this theme from scratch with a few minor changes (green selection highlight instead of blue) by forking off the Numix repo, pulling new changes in from time to time.

Here's the repo:
Here's my PKGBUILD for it:

I'd be interested in maintaining this package.

I also intend to make a -git AUR package for this. (PKGBUILD for that:

If anyone knows how to do gtk themes, feel free to take control of this package

I believe this theme requires a recompilation, now after the GTK update.

EDIT: Nevermind, that's not needed.

@divansantana I had the same text box issue on firefox before it went to gtk3. Now I can't seem to get this theme loaded for gtk3 (but I haven't exactly spent much time trying yet), so I'm not sure if it's still an issue with gtk3.

Just to add that the numix-solarized/archive/ install on the Linux Mint 17.3 referred to MATE flavour.

Thank you very much for all your hard work - really love the solarized dark theme.
[BTW - Numix Circle icons complement this theme perfectly].
So used
and .
The theme is the improved :) properly dark version of the theme (eg. the left menu side panels are dark green etc...

Have even installed it on another machine running Linux Mint 17.3 .
-Unzipped the into /usr/share/themes
-Installed set of icons - the Numix Circle from the above git:
use apt-get (Linux Mint):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install numix-icon-theme-circle
OR just put the icons folders like so:
[apt-get also installs /usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle-Light - only used
the first one - ie. the Numix-Circle).
-As ****sudo**** ie with elevated privilages launch Mint's
Control Centre > Appearance (the new solarized dark theme and the icons are visible there - so set the new theme/icons - ie to get system-wide theme).
-Would probably also work with putting the theme folder in ~/.themes and the icons folder in ~/.icons - but I haven't tried this second way.
-At this point Linux Mint's menu background was still ugly and unusable grey. To fix this:
Right click Start > Preferences > Theme . Here, UNCHECK 'Use custom colors' and make sure the theme selected is our Numix Solarized.
