I've created a PPA for this theme. Run the following commands in a Terminal to install it on your system. Currently it only works on Trusty systems.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kestier19/gtk-themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install iris-gtk-light

My comment clearly says that the PPA only works on Trusty systems. You are on Ubuntu Utopic.

And is this actively updated, like numix?

It is updated, but due to personal reasons, I can't update it as frequently as I'd like. I am working on updating it for the latest Gtk version, however.

the top bar looks nice, how to get it?
Reply
:iconthevirtualdragon:
TheVirtualDragon Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Which top bar? In the file manager, the top bar is part of the app while the top bar with the date, menu, activities label etc. is part of Gnome Shell and is configured using Elegance Colors theme.

There is a green color that shows up for Menu's like in chromium when I use this theme in gnome shell, any idea where that is coming from, I want to change it to softer red that you have?

I'm not sure what you mean, attaching a screenshot might help. It sounds like a bug probably caused by a missing package, or, more likely, a problem with chromium.

Make sure you have administrator rights. If you are trying to extract it to /usr/share/themes, first extract it to your home folder, then move it into /usr/share/themes by launching your file managers as admin (if you are on Ubuntu Unity or Gnome, then this is usually Nautilus). Also make sure you have the package gksu installed (if on Ubuntu - other distros should have a similar name) and then open a terminal and run the command:

gksudo nautilus

and then enter your password, which should open the file manager as administrator, where you can move the iris-light folder to /usr/share/themes

Hope this helped

hi, this is an amazing theme, but i have a problem, in gnome-tweak-tool i can select it in the theme of window,  GTK+, but can't select it in theme of the shell. The option does not appear. Help me please. I leave a screenshot.

The shell theme is not Iris but Elegance Colours. You will have to download that. It is highly configurable, and the theme shown in the screenshot is just that theme with some modified settings. :)

Well first, you must be using a Linux based OS. Then, extract the Gtk theme to either /home/your_username/.themes or usr/share/themes and use a tool like Gnome Tweak Tool or Unity Tweak tool to change the theme to Iris Light.

Amazing theme ! It's simply beautiful.

First theme to drag me away from Numix in ages, even though I still switch between the two... 
Only problem I encountered on Ubuntu 14.04 has to do with the color of the text in the Unity Panel, it's too dark for a black panel, making it hard to see.

Flawless on Gnome Shell 3.10, though. The dark theme is quitte beautiful too, by the way.

In the current state, there may be some bugs, but overall support should not be too bad. When Ubuntu 14.04 is released, full support should be expected.
