GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 58%



Downloads:  4243
Submitted:  Dec 23 2009
Updated:  Oct 3 2013


A blue steel look

Gtk2 theme for: Xfxe4, Gnome2, Mate, E17, IceWm, OpenBox3, StandAlone Compiz, Fluxbox, etc.,

Engine=Pixmap, Mist

Includes: gtk2 theme, IceWM theme, Xfce4 theme, Openbox3 theme

Icons=Faenza http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Faenza-Icons-173323228

MouseCursor=Comix Cursor original White Large Slim

Font=Roboto, designed by Google, get all 16 styles here at:

Wallpaper: A little early but still a favorite of mine.
Peaceful Christmas Village at

Tested in the latest Archlinux OS using icewm-1.3.7-3, xfce4-session-4.10.1-2, openbox-3.5.2-4
No gnome apps, No gtk3.

If you like the start/menu icon and are using a different panel/taskbar than IceWm,
for example: Xfce4panel, Lxdepanel etc. I have placed it at ~/ColdSteel/gtk-2.0/Panel folder.

Right click on your start/menu icon >Select > properties and link to above location to change your icon.

New to themes? create a folder, in your home directory ~/.themes
for example mine is /home/justus/.themes
the dot before themes means it is hidden and linked to /usr/share/themes
Can not find it? go to your file menubar, click View, click Show Hidden
Now, download your chosen theme, right click the downloaded file,
chose extract here, grab the extracted file and drop in your .themes folder.
Then open up your favorite appearance manager and select the newly installed
There are other ways to install themes but this is the best way!
It allows you to control or change parts of the theme without
going to root and possibly doing some harm to your file system.

You may also consider creating a folder called ~/.icons
where you can place downloaded icon themes and mouse cursor themes

And another folder callled ~/.fonts
where you can place downloaded fonts

Right click on screenshots and open in new tab, to get a better view.


Changes: October 2, 2013

Screenshot 1 shows update

Just some IceWm changes, I messed up and left a quotation mark out somewhere from my originial source.

Widowlist fixed, tooltip fixed, tab interface fixed,

changed menu selection to a gradient, changed menu separator to a gradient to better match gtk2 menu.

Changes: September 20, 2013

Screenshot1: Icewm session

Screenshot2: Openbox3 session

Screenshot3: Xfce4 session

Old look here at;

This was my first pixmap theme, time for some updates.

Added my chosen window enviroment Icewm

Added Xfce4wm ported from Icewm

Redo of Openbox3 to look similar, titlebar buttons are 20x20, if your buttons are cut off, use a larger titlebar font.

Almost a complete redo of the gtk2 theme;

New buttons

New scrollbar slider, new range slider and range trough

New scrollbar steppers

New arrows

Complete entry redo with focus accents and unfocused/inactive accents

New notebook and tabs

New Menu look

Redo of frozen bubble penguin, removed bubble, gave his feet some dimension and shadow.
If you don't like it crunch/comment the beginning lines like this starting at line 719.
#overlay_file = "Menu/menu-sticker.png"
#overlay_border = { 6, 6, 6, 6 }
#overlay_stretch = FALSE
of the gtkrc.

Changed bg color, selected bg color, selected fg color

Added complete button functions to default, gives better look with combo menu scroll selectors/buttons.

Added, widget_class "*XfceSystrayPlugin" style "panel" to panel.rc fixes system tray offset when not
using compositing.

 ScreenShots, Themers Beware

 by IamJustUs on: Feb 27 2011

I just noticed that Chromium
Web browser does not update the screen shots, unless you open screenshots in new tab and then
hit the refresh button.

I tried hitting refresh first and
it did update the thumbnails, but
when clicking the thumbnail the old
picture just comes up with no way to refresh it.

This is not good when updating a theme and it is showing old screenshots.

Firefox, however works like a dream no refresh needed.

I guess I will have to post a warning when I update screenshots.

Great Anthony,
It is nice to hear from you.
The sharing, is what
Linux is all about.
And the free choice.
And the diversity that gives us
that choice.
