Ordinary Metacity

Downloads:  15072
Submitted:  Jul 25 2010
Updated:  Jul 28 2010


This Metacity theme is heavily inspired by Chromium, Bespin and Oxygen.

This is essentially a port of my original Emerald theme. Since metacity draws the frames a bit differently than emerald there are some minor differences.

This is still a work in progress. And I'll try to iron out all the bugs/glitches when I have the time.

Currently the window icon will not scale any larger than 16 pixels. I locked it at that size since on my trial systems the icon vanishes once it grows larger than 16 pixels. But it does work if I force it to a locked larger size like 22 pixels, I do not know how to work around this o_O.

Feel free to add any suggestions and requests.

What's included?
Ordinary Colors - Picks up whatever GTK color there is. Uses #d8d8d8 as window color.

Metacity theme for Dust Sand

Future plans
Add border framestyle.

Try converting entire theme into SVG for nicer size scaling.

Add a few more theme variations, Shiki-Colors, Ambiance, etc...

The default color themes work best when the window color is set to "#d8d8d8".

All the other themes should work with respective recommended GTK theme. Meaning that Ordinary Dust Sand works best when used with the GTK theme Dust Sand.

Dust theme by Rico Sta. Cruz, Kido Mariano, and James Schriver.

Elementary gtk theme by DanRabbit


Added scalable titlebar, everything scales with title text size.

Added Ordinary Colors Theme that picks up frame color from currently active GTK theme. Still uses window color #d8d8dd8.

Reworked Ordinary Dust Sand that is scalable now.

Removed Ordinary Elementary since Ordinary Colors can match that theme quite easily.

Fixed theme breakage and reuploaded it.

First release...

I only miss more colors. I don't like the unfocused window border to be black, darker and more striking than the focused ones.

My favourite is the "elementary" one, it fits great with the same name gtk theme.

but after the install they don't show up in System/Preferences/Appearance. Don't you need an index file in the folder?

If not, how do you get them to display?

By default the title can run outside of the 'tab' in the window border.
You can fix this by changing lines 28 and 41 from
<border name="button_border" left="0" right="0" top="0" bottom="0"/>
<border name="button_border" left="0" right="50" top="0" bottom="0"/>

 How do I select the color I want?

 by renatov on: Feb 14 2014

Hi, I absolutely love this theme, it's my default GTK theme. Could you please tell me how can I select titlebar color? The first time I used the titlebar was silver and it was very beautiful, but now it's blue I don't know why. How do I change it to silver again? I'm using Cinnamon on OpenSUSE 13.1 and GTK+ 3.
