GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 69%



Downloads:  7394
Submitted:  Mar 8 2012
Updated:  May 25 2012


This theme is not an exact copy of Adwaita the default GNOME 3 theme. It is just looked like.
You will need the murrine and pixbuf gtk engines to use this theme.

You can find GTK3 light and dark themes here:

1. Extract to ~/.themes

2. Сreate a symbolic link to Adwaita GTK3 theme:
ln -s /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0 ~/.themes/Adwaita-X/gtk-3.0

3. Open GnomeTweakTool and select theme

Arch's AUR:

Ubuntu/Mint/Debian distros:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf

Fedora/RedHat distros:
yum install gtk-murrine-engine gtk2-engines

pacman -S gtk-engine-murrine gtk-engines


v1.02 bug-fix

(Adwaita-X dark/light)

Yup, I have murrine installed on archlinux, gtk2 version 2.24.10-3. This theme (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aldabra?content=142247) does work, except for its scrollbars.

Also, It does work if I use gtk-theme-switch2 instead of gnome-tweak-tool to apply the theme.

gtk-theme-switch2 created a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 that sets the theme, so it's working fine now, and there's no theme errors when I launch any apps. I could investigate more, but it's probably a gnome 3 bug that's been inadvertantly fixed in Ubuntu, in their many patches needed to get Unity to work.

Absolutely brilliant. The GTK2/GTK3 inconsistency is a bite in the butt of Gnome-Shell. This functionally makes everything better.

Thank you so much!

 Minor Improvements

Here is a comment I received from Glinx on my packagebuild for Arch. I have updated my packagebuild to patch your theme, but thought you may be interested in incorporating these improvements in your next update.

"I Change the lines in the gtkrc file for ff and tb to show the menu bar text correctly, and for same tooltips as my gtk3 apps.
libreoffice is the only programme on my system to show white menu bar text (ie unreadable) when selected. Ideas anyone??

For firefox and thunderbird
line 3 (end) changed to - nselected_fg_color:#2e3436"
line 219 changed to - fg[PRELIGHT] = "#ffffff" # selected item color

For tooltips
line 263 changed to - bg[NORMAL] = "#343434"
line 264 changed to - fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff""

This page says the theme was updated to version 1.02, but I'm still getting the 1.01 tarball.
