I have recently upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04. On Ocelot I was using the Hope theme tip to install it: give-your-linux-desktop-new-hope-with-this-gtk3-theme
I especially liked the fact that it turned the Sidebar in Nautilus black, which I found pretty cool. After the upgrade, all my system fonts are white when I set the GTK+ theme to Hope or Hope-DT. See pic:
Now, is there any way to force the fonts colour? or, if nothing else works, could you guys suggest a way to turn the Sidebar in Nautilus to black? Any nice dark gtk+ theme suggestions are also welcome.
From the Hope theme page I see that in the comments more people are complaining about this issue after upgrading. So, my question now is: any way to control the system font colours? Or please suggest a them which adds black sidebars in nautilus.
I have installed the .deb file from launchpad: hope precise
Unfortunately it did not solve the problem, however, now my Ambience theme is gone.... I can't even find it in /usr/share/themes. And now my entire desktop looks a bit crap. Menus don't seem right.
Can I install the default Ambience theme from somewhere?
