I really don't like the gradients in the Elementary theme and I was wondering if there is a way to remove them from applications like Nautilus-Elementary, Postler, Dexter, etc. I've tried commenting out the
/usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-2.0/gtkrc but it doesn't work. It still leaves the gradients in their place.
I'm a big fan of the other controls in the theme: the scroll bar, the way it borders gedit and the buttons, and I'd like to keep these features, but I don't like the way it styles its windows.
EDIT: The gradients I'm talking about are the ones at the top of the window.
I'd like to create a sort of matte look, similar to this, which was done using Orta:
I'd like a flat color, preferably without the line separating the top part of the application with the bottom.
