Equinox Evolution: beautiful day themed GTK themes (OMGUbuntu article)

Add some style to your desktop with the Equinox Evolution suite of themes by Faenza creator tiheum.

The four themes, each with more than subtle differences to the last, appear to echo different parts of the day within their colour choices. 'Dawn' is heavy on contrast – dark borders and light windows; Midnight has the glint of a silvery Metacity amongst its otherwise dark colour choices; Dusk is a hazy set of greys; and light is, like a fresh spring morning, crisp, cool and airy.

Each theme can be downloaded separately and includes a metacity, GTK+ and Chrome theme.

Note that for the themes to render correctly one needs to install the Equinox theme engine.

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox

All four themes can be installed via the above PPA, too.

  • sudo apt-get install equinox-theme
