Description:

Dark luminous theme with many colors to use (usable also with GNOME 3). It is released in 2 versions:

- The (squared) version with squared corners.

- The (rounded) version with rounded corners.


There is also a version for 4k HiDPI displays



The themes named "Polaris (rounded)" and "Polaris (squared)" have freely customizable color (from Gnome theme manager). I made also a predefined colors, so you can use different color for window border and for GTK+ theme.

There is also GDM theme with colors used in Polaris. It's name is Plasmatic. Check this link: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Plasmatic?content=99735.

The font (DS9) used on screenshots can be found here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lcars-Fonts?content=49050

I like this theme since several distros. I will see, if it works in Gnome3 with Gnome-Shell.

I want to take a minute to commend you on your documentation files.

You don't confuse new users with geekspeak but you write like you are talking to them personally. This is something that needs to be practiced by more coders and application writers in Linux. Thank you for your contributions and your ability to speak clearly and patiently to your users.

It seems confusing about what archives are needed.

blue archive contains only blue versions of the theme. Customizable color archive contains only versions (squared and rounded) for which you can freely change color of the theme from Gnome Theme Manager. Color pack contains everything ie. blue + customizable color + all colors from screenshots.

I have to say with so much stuff on here I often glance past some really good stuff like this.

Your work is always very well finished and the clever twists you put on these works are really well - outstanding.

Anyway glad to have come across your work and thanks for hitting us up with some very savvy, subtle beauties :)
