    Re: Need a Good DARK Theme for 18.04

    I always had issues of themes not seeming to work from the ~/.themes folder and always copy them into the system folder after extracting.

    I'm afraid I'm an XFCE (Ubuntu Studio) user and can't answer your other questions. One of the key points in my above linked thread was that many downloadable themes only contain gtk2 files though, but with gtk3 you can select variants (eg Greybird has a Light and a Dark variant for GTK+3 applications.) Hence follow the instructions for forcing it to always use the Dark variant for gtk3, then edit or copy over the gtk2 folder. Then there is the final step with qt5ct to get any Qt apps you are using also following the theme.

    But you're right, it's really not simple!!

    Question Recommendations for Good Themes that work with 18.04

    I have been trying out some new themes for 18.04 and most of them do not work. It appears that many themes that worked with 16.04, do not work any more.

    I know about the new community theme and I tried it - it's nice, but I want something darker.

    On 16.04, I used Delorean Dark. Now I am using Equilux. But, I want something darker - something that applies those changes to my apps (mostly Chrome).

    Can anyone recommend a website or repository where I can find themes that are compatible with 18.04?

    Best regards,

    Thanks Kazakore - even though I did not follow all of it, I did learn a couple of things about themes. Now I know the difference between gtk2 and gtk3.

    A couple of options here.

    Code:
    sudo apt install arc-theme
    There are dark versions with different colors of the linked themes. Just install the dark ones if you want.
