Safari window doesn't apply the skin



  • Nuno

    Hi Robinson!

    Thank you for getting back to us with feedback, and sorry about the inconvenience.

    Safari is one of the mosts difficult applications to theme, because the way it draws the window changes a lot between OS X versions! Specifically, on OS X 10.8, Safari window theming has an unique limitation: its texture is drawn as a pattern, so, every bigger image not drawn as a pattern won't be "rendered" on the Safari themed window (10.8 only).

    To bypass this limitation on 10.8, and the specific theme you are using, I have created a derivative work of it, replacing the theme images drawn on the window UI element by color gradients. You can install the theme variant by double-clicking the linked file below:

    Fortunately, this specific issue is not present on 10.7 and 10.9. If encounter any themes in the future with the same symptom, you can create a derivative work of it and recreate the window texture using a color gradient.

    Hope this helps!

    Best regards and happy theming,

    To download the theme, it's better to right-click on it and select "Save linked file as...". You can then double-click the downloaded ".flavour" file!
