Iris Night Gtk Theme: v1.1 by TheVirtualDragon Iris Night Gtk Theme: v1.1 by TheVirtualDragon
Iris Night is a fully dark version of the Iris themes, using a bold accent colour with a tinted dark background. It supports Gtk 3.10+ and Gtk 2 (using the Murrine and Pixmap engines).

If you find any bugs, then I'd appreciate it if you could report them on the main Iris Github page with "Iris Night" in the title:

Follow the Iris Project page on Google+:…

Also see the Iris Dark theme: and the Iris Light theme:

The icons are Nitrux: and the shell theme is Elegance Colors:

Happy tweaking :) (Smile)

Hello, just got this theme and like it very much.

But there seems to be a bug with it on on/off-buttons. See the picture:

EDIT: forgott to mention, this is on gnome 3.12, ubuntu 14.10

It's most likely happening because the names for 'on' and 'off' are quite a bit longer in your language, and so are unable to fit into the switch. I will try to find a solution for this.

That is strange as "AUS" should have same length as "OFF". same goes for "AN" and "ON".
Anyhow, hoping for a fix.

Sorry, I meant the size of the text - your font size is fairly high, so the words in the switch are overflowing. Again, I'll look for a solution.

Thank you for caring about that issue!

Where can I see screenshots of the theme on unity?
TheVirtualDragon Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'm not sure if this helps, but I got Ubuntu 14.10 running in Virtual box to test out Iris Night:………

It definitely does, thanks a lot.

I had to create an account just to be able to add my feedback about this theme. So here goes:

- purchasing option: though I encourage FOSS, I find that some paid software packages (in this case a theme) get better support and updates from their creator, so if that's the case, I will gladly purchase it;

- are you planning to offer some support for this theme to those who purchase it? I am only interested in tweaking a few details and would just like to know how to quickly find those settings;

- is this theme 100% compatible wit other Linux Distros, like Elementary OS & Freya, Linux Mint, Ubuntu and Fedora?

- Would you consider a different (and much easier) payment option, like Bitcoin? Having to purchase points here means creating an account and adding many personal details just to be able to make a purchase. If you would make that process easier, it might bring more purchases. I would gladly send you a payment in Bitcoin (BTC).

Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it a lot.

- The theme was made paid as it has the work of the existing [And free] Iris Dark and Iris Light themes plus more work done (especially design wise) to make it suitable with dark colours. It is a one time payment (future updates can be freely downloaded once) and does indeed help support development for all the Iris themes.

- I would be more than happy to help you with any queries you have about the theme, or any of my other themes, just message me through a note or whatever form of messaging you wish, and I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.

- The theme should be compatible with all distros that run Gtk 3.10 or more - so all recent releases of the distros you mentioned, with the exception of elementary OS Luna, as that uses Ubuntu 12.04 as a base, which uses outdated libraries. Although it hasn't been tested on Freya, it should work fine, with the possible exception of custom widgets that elementary uses. I'm currently testing the theme on Freya and updating it.

- I was using Gnome Look, coupled with Paypal, previously, but there were complications with this. I will try to see if I can get some alternative process set up.
