Works On Mint 17 & Ubuntu 14.04,14.10
(Or A Distro With GTK 3.10-3.12)

New GTK/Gnome Builds (3.14 and newer) will likely not work with this theme...
We do not have enough resources to update this theme every cycle.
If you would like to help the project please let us know (Email).

Or check out our contribute page. That being said this theme is Fully LTS supported. (Mint and Ubuntu LTSs)

Compatibility Note:This theme is a LTS Theme, It is built for Mint 17 LTS and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. GTK Version 3.10-3.12. Newer versions of GTK may not work. We hope to update it when Mint releases next but until then our hands are kinda tied.
