Hi all!

In LL3.6, When choosing color themes in "Appearance", there is only the Arc-Dark theme.
But even when choosing it, Windows Title Bars and borders are still white/plale-gray.
... and Arc-Darker is whiter, go figure.

Is a real "dark" theme planned in updates/new version?
If not (or meanwhile) what would be a recommended true dark theme for LL?

Cheers!

Woah, I though 210 plymouth themes was a lot... 880 xfce themes :-O
Cool, but I thought maybe there was one inside LL3.6 , I won't browse to the site
on each install... bah, my windows10 tablet doesnt have a true dark theme either.
Ans sorry for typos, I hate the on screen keyboard on it too >:-( at least it didnt cost anything,
only 6hours of "gossage" and reinstalls. ;)
Cheers!

The window title bars and borders I think are changed in Window Manager Settings, separate settings from the Appearance settings.
No need to browse to the site on each install, get them once & save them somewhere, use for each install.

What a Linux noob I am, I went in the Windows Manager and was able to change the Window border.
But, I must say it's a shame the "appearance" is in two places. Not user friendly at all. :(
At least, now I know.

Sorry again for my noobiness!

No need to apologise, I do agree with you on that one, that's a quirk of the XFCE desktop, I believe it's more of a 'not newb to Linux friendly' than not user friendly as once you know where it is it's easy to find.
There's also the Window Manager Tweaks settings, which I guess makes it 3 different settings menus to control that stuff.
Probably a good reason why it's done in such a way & maybe sometime in the future that might be changed to put all those settings together.
