I want to change address bar in chrome to dark (with white letters for example).

I tried to find it in many places/themes, but without result. I use GTK 3, but I could change if someone got working solution in other GUI's. I could also change to chromium if it is from some reason problematic in chrome.

  • First, xubuntu IS GTK. GTK is not a desktop but a graphical language, many (most?) desktops use GTK. Did you check the Google link I gave you? 1.3 MILLION results, are you telling me all of them don't work, come on man, this is a duplicate.

  • 1. still it is not gnome 3. 2 I checked solution suggested and it still not work. Ok. It might be Dorian-Theme dependent, still solution presented is not working. I would not waste anyone time if it would work.

  • Your question says GTK not Gnome, you have lost me now as you say you have xubuntu and the link is for xubuntu, both gnome and xubuntu are GTK3. Again, check the Google link I gave you, it has results for everything. Your comments make my think you did not even try the dupe or check the other link. This has become unclear what you are asking, IMO. Try the link, I won't be responding again on this.

This is solution that should work on any GUI. And not require specific theme in OS.

  1. Just set dark theme for ex. in tweek-tool.

  2. downloadoad google dark theme for ex. from http://killhellokitty.deviantart.com/art/DeLorean-Dark-Chromium-Theme-337912877

  3. go to chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md and change to Normal as described Pictures how to change omnibox, (in old chrome version <69 chrome://settings/ and click "Use GTK+ theme").

Chrome do not take gui from GTK until we press "Use GTK+ theme". Working configuration xubuntu 16.04 + Dorian Theme 3.16 + Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit).
