GTK2 Themes by SkiesOfAzel 337 comments

Well another helpful hint for you guys out there.
It turns out that alot of the applications used in Debian Sid for example are gtk3, and unfortunately look very ugly against the older gtk2 themes. :(

So on my system for example, gedit which I love to use, looked aweful while mousepad (xfce's editor) looked just right.

So to get gtk3 applications to theme correctly as well, I googled orta gtk3, and found a solution

1) Download the gtk3 orta theme from
[link]http://rebek94.deviantart.com/art/Orta-theme-for-Ubuntu-Unity-11-10-283027728[/link]
Top-rght button to download

2) Then just extract everything and copy the "gtk3.0" folder from the extracted file to ~/.config.

Props to

You dont even have to log out for changes to take effect ;)

The cool thing is that this works with any other theme. You just need to find a port of the theme to gtk3

Debian + Xfce + Compiz + Emerald + Orta = crazy delicious !!!

GNOME's got nuthin on this.

After I installed the theme using the python script I couldn't get gtk window decorator to change from Adwaita - a relic from my GNOME enviroment - which sucks by the way ....

So I installed Emerald following guide on this page

http://dan.arndt.ca/other/install-emerald-debian-squeeze/

Then I went to Xfmenu>Settings>Emerald Theme Manager

Select "Import" and navigate to the folder extracted from the theme's zip file, opened "Emerald" folder and imported the decorations "Orta.emerald". Success !!

Super Easy, Super cool....
Thank you for an awesome theme
