## Installation
### Packages
### Manual Installation
How To Install:
1. Download (
1a-. Extract to /usr/share/themes
or ~/.themes (create it (in your home folder) if necessary);
2. Alternatively click on the install button next to the theme
(follow instructions by clicking the question mark next to the install button)
3. Change via distribution specific tool.
**Note:** If your distribution doesn't ship separate development packages you just need GTK 3 instead of the `-dev` packages.
For the theme to function properly, install the following
* Gnome Shell, GTK 3.14 - 3.22
* The `gnome-themes-standard` package
* The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
* `gtk-engine-murrine` (Arch Linux)
* `gtk2-engines-murrine` (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
* `gtk-murrine-engine` (Fedora)
* `gtk2-engine-murrine` (openSUSE)
* `gtk-engines-murrine` (Gentoo)
After the installation is complete you can activate the theme with `gnome-tweak-tool` or a similar program by selecting `OSX-Arc-White`, `OSX-Arc-Darker` or `OSX-Arc-Shadow` as Window/GTK+ theme and `OSX-Arc-White`, `OSX-Arc-Darker` or `OSX-Arc-Shadow` as Gnome Shell/Cinnamon theme.

### Arc-Dark for Ubuntu Software Center
The Arc Dark theme for the Ubuntu Software Center by [mervick]( can be installed from [here]( It solves readability issues with Arc Dark and the Ubuntu Software Center.
## Troubleshooting
If you have Ubuntu with a newer GTK/Gnome version than the one included by default (i.e Ubuntu 14.04 with GTK 3.14 or Ubuntu 15.04 with GTK 3.16, etc.) you have to install the theme manually as described above.
This is also true for other distros with a different GTK/Gnome version than the one included by default
If you get artifacts like black or invisible backgrounds under Unity, disable overlay scrollbars with
gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal
