[Bug 828392] Re: light-themes don't display well in gnome-panel 3+


It seems that this bug is becoming sort of a meta-bug for several issues
in different packages.

Bug 885691 (which was marked a duplicate of this) specifically addressed
the themed background gradient not drawn correctly.  A patch to gnome-
panel was submitted for that bug and the upstream bug, gnome-bugs
663397, on remote watch here.

The original reporter of this bug seems to refer primarily to the
gradient background issue as being the impetus for this report. There
are certainly other bugs that impact the visual quality of light-themes
with gnome-panel 3.  I would be happy to cross-ref those here if that's

Bug description:
  Please see the attached screenshots. Adwaita looks lovely in Gnome
  Fallback (aka Gnome Classic or gnome-panel) but Ambiance & Radiance do
  not blend right. It's probably worth looking at Adwaita's code to see
  what they do exactly to support Gnome Shell & Fallback. Perhaps light-
  themes uses too many hacks that don't all work well with the Gnome 3

  This is a high priority as a decent amount of upgraders who will try
  to keep using Gnome Fallback even though little developer time is
  spent to keep it working. And since there is not an obvious way to
  change the theme in Gnome 3, they may not know that switching to
  Adwaita will improve the appearance, or know how to do that either.
