okay, so now I got this to work, can I complain that adwaita is really
pretty ugly? :)
the dark grey gradient on toolbars really doesn't look nice, especially
with toolbar icons disabled. There seems to be rather too much padding
space on the edges of tabs and toolbars, it looks 'fat'. I can see the
idea behind having the default / selected-by-tab button in dialogs go
bright blue, it's more visible than a faint outline, but it looks really
pretty ugly to me. Greyed out text on toolbars is barely visible. I also
don't like the very subtle indication of which window is focused;
focused windows look like unfocused windows did in clearlooks, it's
pretty jarring. I guess you might get used to it after a while. I do
like the scrollbars, they're nice.
honestly it looks a hell of a lot worse than clearlooks, so far, to me.
Didn't clearlooks change from a really aggressive blue color for
selections and scrollbars to the much subtler blue it has now after
people complained? Why go back to a really aggressive blue for adwaita,
I like it better than clearlooks myself.
In any case, file bugs upstream if you don't like it.
