GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 73%



Downloads:  31424
Submitted:  Dec 31 2008
Updated:  Apr 15 2009


NOTICE: This theme is over two years old and may not work due to updates to GNOME and the Murrine Engine. Please do not count on updates to this theme in the near future. Also, I didn't renew my 4shared account in time so the wallpapers are no longer available. I apologize for the inconvenience.


I began the Macchiato project in November 2008. My goal was to create a visually appealing light theme that incorporates some dark touches and to find just the right balance between dark and light browns.

I abandoned the project in January 2009 after releasing version 0.1 to work on other theme projects. After those projects went nowhere, I decided to turn back to Macchiato to fix a bunch of coloration bugs once and for all. I released version 0.2 in February 2009.

However, the theme still had color problems. So I've been working on it in my spare time to fix some of the new bugs. I think I have finally fixed the most obvious errors.

I also made changes to the panel configuration toso that it would go great with the Smoke panel background image, which can be found here: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Smoke+-+a+gnome+panel+bg?content=99748

What is included:

Due to uneven focus while working on this theme, I am no longer including the Cairo-Dock and conky configurations, as they no longer match the new vision for the theme.

The theme pack now only contains the Macchiato theme itself as well as an updated Emerald theme. The new Emerald theme no longer has the curved upper left corner.

Before you install this theme

In order for this theme to work correctly, I highly suggest installing the newest version of the Murrine Engine (0.90.3). The current version in the Ubuntu Intrepid repos (0.60.1) is outdated and will not be sufficient for this theme to work correctly.


30 DEC 2008 - 0.1 - Initial release.
23 FEB 2009 - 0.2 - Fixed color bugs.
14 APR 2009 - 0.3 - Fixed more color bugs.

Over 14,000 downloads and counting! Thanks to all who have downloaded this theme so far!

The download link works now.

It's a nice theme but the gray on gray unfocused list items is a little too obscure for my tastes. Also, maybe a little brighter prelight on the toolbar buttons.

The scrollbar background in firefox is also too dark. Setting an appropriate value for bg[ACTIVE] fixes this on clearlooks and non-integrated scrollbar murrine. I'm not sure if the fix works on the integrated scrollbars.

I'm really liking this theme but I was just wondering what background, icon pack and firefox theme you use. Thanks!

The wallpaper is part of a pack called Excellium, which can be downloaded here:

The icon theme is Eikon, which can be downloaded here: http://drop.io/fmrbpensador

The Firefox theme is Elementary. I added a Stylish configuration that changed the tabs to look like buttons instead. That Stylish addon can be found here: http://userstyles.org/styles/142
