The Dark Brushed Metal Theme

for LinuxMint Maya 13 (Gnome-3.4) and Cinnamon-1.60

Theme supports Nemo-File-Manager!


Should you experience problems with window opening and closing animation the fix is to remove the 'metacity-theme-3.xml' file from the included 'metacity-1' folder.

Theme includes:

  • Cinnamon Theme
  • Gtk2 & Gtk3 Themes
  • Metacity 2 & 3 Themes
  • Gnome-Shell Theme
  • GDM-3 Theme
  • Xfwm4 Theme
  • Openbox3 Theme

Requirements of Gtk2 & Gtk3:

  • Gnome 3.4 *if you are using the Gnome Desktop
  • Gtk3-3.4*
  • gkt-engine-equinox-1.50
  • gtk-engine-murrine- newer)
  • pixbuf-engine or the gtk(2)-engines package
  • gnome-themes-standard-3.4.*(provides the 'adwaita' theme)
  • gtk-engine-unico-1.0.2*

Here you can find downloads for matching Firefox-theme, Thunderbird-theme, Chromium-theme, and Qt(Kde apps)-theme.

*as of version 1.54, the Firefox-Scrollbar-Fix is necessary, unless using Ubuntu w/overlay-scrollbars.  It can be found on the Firefox-Theme page.

Also available by PPA:

Copy and Paste the following in a terminal~

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:killhellokitty/themes.ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install delorean-dark

*If you are using ArchLinux, Fedora-17, or openSUSE-12.2  repos are available on my web-page.

    Hi I love the theme. Especially the dark nemo file manager! I have it installed successfully (via Cinnamon settings) and the desktop looks nice, but nemo is still burning my retinas - no change to color scheme. Can you pls help me? I'm running Cinnamon 1.8.8 on Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE): Linux 3.10-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.5-1 (2013-08-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux Is there any diagnostic or fix I can do? Thank you,
