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:

enter image description here

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.

cheers.

Edit:

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.

Edit 2:

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?

After upgrading to 12.04, I ran into the same problem with a couple of my old themes. They needed to be upgraded to (I think) in order to work properly with Gnome 3.4. I went to the creator's website and found a version for Ubuntu 12.04, and it has worked perfectly. This might be what you need to do, too. If you access the Launchpad page for it (launchpad.net/~kokoto-java/+archive/omgubuntu-stuff/+build/…), I think you'll find a version for precise. –  Kelley May 22 '12 at 22:58

@cipricus Thanks's for being thorough, I've added his comment as an answer. I really don't know how to accept a comment as an answer. –  bioShark Jan 8 '13 at 17:21
    
@cipricus, thx. I was too tired to spot the easy obvious solution of linking the user. Thanks for the update. –  bioShark Jan 8 '13 at 19:27
