Menda Dark vs. Maia Dark?
« on: 16. April 2016, 15:23:15 »
Hi all.

Is the menda themes gonna be updated for gtk 3.20?

If not, is there a plans on doing a Maia dark theme, like Menda has?
The reason I ask, is because I like the dark themes the best. Right now I'm running Vertex-Dark, but I miss the Manjaro green. :)

I don't think that menda gonna be updated for gtk 3.20 and will be replaced by maia-theme.
Due to the admirable perseverance of Bernhard Landauer (oberon2007) there is already a dark maia theme in unstable repository (basically is the vertex-theme with changed color from blue to green). :)

Take a look here:

Cool. Will it be named maia-themes-dark or something when it gets to stable repo?

Also, xcursor-menda, does maia have an alternative there?

The name in unstable is vertex-maia-themes.
There is not even a xcursor theme but I'm sure that will eventually become.
Oberon is  focused now on the icon themes so as to be matched with the new theme.  :)

The Vertex theme is far better anyhow, I always found menda a little too dark

There's no such thing as too dark:P
OK, so I took the red pill. Now what?
