Flat And Square by alexanthony Flat And Square by alexanthony
Based on lassekongo83's Zukitwo.
Using some code from the default gnome shell theme

GNOME Shell 3.6 compatible

A simplistic theme for gnome shell
Pretty much monochromatic, no rounded corners, no gradients.
Looking at it now, some might consider it a bit Metro-ish, but that wasn't the intention - I started off from Zukitwo thinking that the blue gradient-ish highlights it uses were a little ugly.

I might make a variation at some point with the same flat monochromes but rounded corners.

Several options for close-window icons and switches are included. I don't think these are quite right yet. They're very simplistic icons if anyone wants to try to improve them.

Checkboxes aren't done in the right style, but they don't pop up very much in shell, so I haven't bothered to create my own SVGs.

Looking Glass and the keyboard aren't really in style yet. I don't use the on screen keyboard, so don't know what it looks like.

I have the opacity of popup menus and notifications at 0.9, you may wish to change this (default shell is 0.8)

Update 17/3/13
Finally got round to uploading my 3.6 update. I started again from Adwaita so it may look a little different, but the general style is the same.

Sadly it's kinda glitchy in GNOME 3.10.

Been looking for something exactly like this!! However my dash/overview does not show any application icons with this theme selected. Works OK with other themes, and I restarted shell after applying. any ideas?

Looks great otherwise, great job!!

Are you using 3.2 or 3.4? This is for 3.4. This might fix it for 3.2:
in the .icon-grid section around line 669, add -shell-grid-item-size: 106px;
in the .contact-grid section around line 757, add -shell-grid-item-size: 240px;

Sorry, I'm using 3.4 and so deleted the deprecated stuff I don't use

Although I have actually seen icons not appear in 3.4. Restarting shell seems to fix it. Not sure what that's from.

I'm still on 3.2

I'll try that when I get a chance. Thank you very much and keep up the good work!!
