Metacity Theme

Score 73%

Dark luminous theme with many colors to use. It is released in 2 versions:
(usable also with GNOME 3)

- The (squared) version with squared corners.

- The (rounded) version with rounded corners.

Download: Click on download link and after 3 seconds you will be redirected to another page where you can download the whole pack.


The themes named "Polaris (rounded)" and "Polaris (squared)" have freely customizable color (from Gnome theme manager). I made also a predefined colors, so you can use different color for window border and for GTK+ theme. All colors used in a pack are mentioned in a "README (colors)" file which is in the Polaris pack.

It's very easy to make your own predefined color or to change a title alignment or even to change a button icon size. To do so read a "README (easily customize your theme)" file which is included in the Polaris pack.


- bugs in unfocused button background repaired
- focused button background is little bit lighter
- some changes to source XML

- antialias button icons
- maximize and restore icon of (rounded) version is now rounded

I have to say with so much stuff on here I often glance past some really good stuff like this.

Your work is always very well finished and the clever twists you put on these works are really well - outstanding.

Anyway glad to have come across your work and thanks for hitting us up with some very savvy, subtle beauties :)

blue archive contains only blue versions of the theme. Customizable color archive contains only versions (squared and rounded) for which you can freely change color of the theme from Gnome Theme Manager. Color pack contains everything ie. blue + customizable color + all colors from screenshots.
