GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 69%



Downloads:  173066
Submitted:  Jun 9 2009
Updated:  Sep 23 2010


A version of this Azenis Theme is now the default theme for Ultimate Edition 2.3!!

Download now contains a more compact Netbook version


What is Azenis I hear you say? Azenis was originally a windowblinds theme created by J.J.Ying, now in its second carnation it has become one of their most prominent themes with almost 200,000 downloads. It has also been ported to KDE by Ezy where it has proved equally successful. I decided to have a go at creating a port for gnome, i got permission from both J.J.Ying and Ezy and this is the result.


I have currently uploaded a standard black and blue version as well an icon theme. Various other coloured versions including red, green, purple and gold versions of theme has also been created by myself and others. whilst a whiter version is still in progress that i hope to have ready soon. Please feel free to post comments and suggestions

Thanks and i hope you enjoy my theme

::Package contains::

-Gtk and Metacity Themes
-Nautilus Background
-Default Wallpaper
-Netbook version (Metacity and gtk)

::Installation instructions::

1. Download the file and place on your desktop
2. Open a terminal and run these commands:

sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/Azenis /usr/share/themes

3. Open the theme manager, you can now
select the Azenis theme,
when you click on it, it will apply the gtk and metacity themes as well as the icon and cursor themes if you have them installed. It will also give you the option of using the wallpaper provided with this theme.

Alternatively you can download the deb installer package created by TheeMahn, it is currently consistent with the 0.2.7 release of Azenis and contains Azenis, Azenis red as well as both of their matching icon themes, wallpapers, GDM, a Grub splash and the Usplash theme


Lots of other really great Azenis Skins and themes to compliment the look created by others in the community. I strongly recommend a look =)

Emerald theme: Created by Seanbarman, Also includes his own version of Azenis

Azenis XFWM theme: Created by yantar

Azenis XMMS theme: Created by hellion0

hi jameshardy,
I remember our good working together and I hope that you will one day also update the other colors of the Azenis Icons because I still like them.

Perhaps you will do more such good things in future.

your friend Karmicbastler

Heya Karmicbastler,

i am actually no longer a million miles away from updating the other colour versions, the standard blue version is getting close to the point where ill be happy with how many of the most common icons it covers. After that im intending to catch all the rest up to it.

All the best,

 Azenis Theme

 by jezza71 on: Feb 20 2010

Very nice looking theme but having trouble installing.I copy Azenis from desktop to usr/share/themes but it does not show up in System>Preferences> Appearance>Theme. I navigate to usr/share/themes/Azenis but the whole folder is locked and has only root permissions. I have tried chmod and chown from the terminal but was left with an empty metacity-1 folder. Surely there is an easier way or have I missed something

Hmm this sounds very strange, the most common issue (although im sure this isn't the case in your instance) would be if you haven't given yourself the proper permissions to move the theme to usr/share/themes. or it could be that you are not moving the correct file structure. In this case however if you are unable to resolve it i would simply reccomend putting it into your .themes folder either by simply dragging and dropping the Azenis theme folder into it or an archived version of it onto your appearance preferences. This will however restrict usage of the theme to which ever user installs it and will need to be repeated for each subsequent user how also wants access to the theme.

Let me know if you need any more help, all the best,

O.k! Dragged Azenis folder from Desktop to .themes and all is working fine now. I am the only user so I don't need to bother with /share. Cool looking theme, the best Ubuntu theme I have found.Much better than boring brown!
Many thanks.

 your problems with installing

 by Karmicbastler on: Feb 21 2010
Score 50%

hi jezza71,

you did it the wrong way.
do it this way. Open your personal folder in your user-account. Then go into the menu and open "view" and there go to the topic "hidden objects" and check the box there.

Then you look at the main window, where you see a hidden folder called .icons.
Then extract this package into this folder and close the folder again.

then you go to system->preferences->appearance and there go to "themes" and select the Azenis icons including the corresponding theme and save it.
E voila the Azenis-theme is installed.

That's all you have to do.

Greetings and have fun with this theme,

Downloaded and installed the updated Version (0.4.3 - normal blue). Problem is still there. Btw.: i only get the warning while starting a few gnome apps / not all. Nautilus is starting without a warning. I think not every app wants to read the size field?!

You can jabber me for further tests if you want: exmethix@jabber.org

first of all THANK you. The work you have done is really excellent. This is my first theme evar to use this way on Archlinux.

I also have a warning message

(lxappearance:7989): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory of theme Azenis Icons has no size field

(lxappearance:7991): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory of theme Azenis Icons has no size field

And I'm using Archlinux (your theme matches a great background and the logo :). I'll google about this... not sure if I can help with this but just to inform you. Thank you for the theme!
