10 Best Modern GTK Themes for Your Linux

The standard GNOME theme is very classic (Adwaita), because it is what they test and recommend, however, you can improve the look of your GNU/Linux by changing the theme and for a better experience.

How to install themes?

Recalling that it is interesting to have GNOME Tweaks installed, examples:

sudo emerge gnome-tweaks # Gentoo, Funtoo, ...
sudo apt install gnome-tweaks # Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, ...
sudo pacman -s gnome-tweaks # Arch, Manjaro, ...

And then follow these steps:

1. Download the theme, example:

You can download via http, git, via command line, or any other means you find

2. Unzip the file (if it is compressed):

We recommend you to use the application extract, it is simple and easy to use!

3. Move to your ~/.themes directory

If there is no such directory in your home folder, create: mkdir ~/.themes.

Attention: If within the theme you download there are * variants * within it, move the variants. The root folder has the index.theme file inside it directly.

4. Open GNOME Tweaks and choose the theme

Hit Alt + F2 and type: gnome-tweaks, or run this command in terminal

5. Choose the theme that appears:

Choose the line Applications, if you have not yet changed Adwaita (default), click and change to the name of the theme you want, see image below:

GNOME Tweaks

Alternatively you can change the theme via the command line using gsettings with the command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'THEME-NAME'

Or by changing the vim ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini file and defining the theme in that file:

[Settings]
gtk-theme-name = "THEME-NAME"
