Getting the dark settings in Gnome3/2 hybrid

this post is useful to me.

To change the gtk look on gnome 3/gnome 2 hybrid as in debian 6 you must use the command line.

Apparently Gnome is reading the gtk.css file setting. So you need to substitute the gtk-dark.css to the gtk.css:

cd /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0

cp gtk.css gtk.css.orig

cp gtk-dark.css gtk.css

I must say that Gnome Shell (the new desktop environment of Gnome 3) is blowing my mind. I’m using it on my iMac with Ubuntu, and comparing it with Lion’s Mission Control and new desktop management features, I’m still asking myself who copied who.

A quick search on the web, and I found out that the Gnome Shell project started some time in 2008. This may be the answer.

But, why is Gnome Shell blowing your mind?

In my case I found it very difficult to customize. Actually it is very customizable, but settings are buried in thousands of files written in XML.
