I am looking for a theme that replicates the look of the classic Clearlooks theme from Gtk2 or something that at least looks similar, i.e. something basic, with rounded corners that doesn't overdo it with distracting color gradients. Having the arrows on the scrollbar would also be nice. Suggestions?

  • Thanks, works great so far. To install it under XFCE I needed to use:ln -s ~/.themes/clearlooks-phenix-master/gtk-3.0/ ~/.config/gtk-3.0 – Grumbel Jun 27 '12 at 10:24

    Thanks! Clearlooks-Phenix for Gtk 2 and Gtk 3, plus Cleanlooks for KDE make a great desktop integration for people like me, running all kinds of apps with different toolkits. – marcus Jun 29 '12 at 0:57

Try the Sonar (3.2) or Elements themes in the WebUpd8 themes PPA.

  • Yeah. Elements from the same source is also very lo-fi, however all of these new themes crowd your ~/.xsession-errors with errors and warnings. – aquaherd Oct 27 '11 at 18:51
  • @aquaherd: is there any theme that does not? – RolandiXor Oct 28 '11 at 2:30
