‘Nephrite’ is a Classy New GTK Theme for Linux Desktops – OMG! Ubuntu!

Nephrite GTK theme by Vinceliuice

Considered one of Linux desktop’s most prolific — to not point out finest, imo — theme makers has launched a model new GTK theme for us all to go gaga over.

Designer Vince Liuice’s newest creation is known as Nephrite, and it was made accessible to obtain from Pling and from GitHub this weekend.

Nephrite maintains the top quality this theme maker is famed for, and the theme seems to be pixel excellent on my excessive decision show, i.e. no blurry corners or pixelated edges some themes inadvertently supply.

At all times one for choices, Vince has made the Nephrite theme accessible in gentle, darkish, and combined variations. All come paired with a calming teal accent color by default, making it the best praise to Vince’s Colloid icon theme.

Regardless of the macOS-y presentation within the following screenshots they provide a good really feel for the Nephrite GTK theme and its accompanying GNOME Shell theme:

Not turned on by teal? There are lots extra choices, and might specify which accent color you need set up, with purple, pink, crimson, orange, yellow, inexperienced, and gray accessible. There are additionally devoted hues to match the favored Dracula and Nord color schemes, do you have to want these.

As with lots of Vince’s different themes there’s a bundled installer script. This makes it straightforward to put in Nephrite GTK theme on Ubuntu (and attainable different distros, although I haven’t tried it). Tip: if you wish to set up all of color variants so you may strive them out in flip simply run the ./set up.sh with the -t all flag.

To alter theme in Ubuntu you should utilize the GNOME Tweaks app. To alter GNOME Shell theme (for this does additionally embrace a companion Shell theme) you’ll want to first set up the ‘Person Themes’ GNOME Shell extension, then use the GNOME Tweaks device to alter Shell theme.

Do bear in mind that the bundled installer script routinely hyperlinks the Nephrite theme to libadwaita, overwriting the look of libadwaita apps by default. If you do not need this to occur you must set up the theme manually.

When you do use the set up script however later want to ‘undo’ the theme affecting libadwaita apps you must manually delete the ‘Nephrite-Gentle’ folder in ~/.themes/ (although this, naturally, deletes the theme too).

Let me know what you want about Nephrite down within the feedback — plus do let me know should you suppose this theme ought to take a spot on my checklist of the finest GTK themes for Ubuntu!
