GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 76%



Downloads:  234778
Submitted:  Oct 27 2010
Updated:  Jan 13 2011


It has come to my attention that some older versions of the pixmap engine (like the one found in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx) have a bug that causes severe visual glitches when transparency is used in menubars. If your menubars and panel indicators are messed up, go to the Fixes page of the Orta Settings Manager and check the option "Select this if your menus and panel have visual glitches". This will also remove transparency from the Gnome Menu Bar applet, so if you use this applet with the flat panel option to make the panel transparent, you are out of luck.


Ubuntu PPA :

Please make absolutely sure you have removed any previous instances of the theme before installing via ppa.

To add the ppa and install the theme and the settings manager, type this on a terminal :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install orta-theme

To install the emerald decorators :

sudo apt-get install orta-emerald-decorators

To install the Xfwm4 decorators :

sudo apt-get install orta-xfwm4-decorators

You can find the Orta Settings Manager under the Preferences category of your Main Menu.

Manual Installation :

Extract the extractme.tar.gz archive that you find inside the zip, to a folder of your choosing. Inside, you will find the theme (Orta.tar.gz) and additional decorators (Orta-Squared.tar.gz and Orta-Old.tar.gz) along with some folders. First, right click on OrtaSettingsManager.py and make sure that the "Allow executing file as program" option is checked. Run it and press the uninstall button to remove any old versions of Orta from your system. You can install the theme and decorators manually by dragging and dropping them to the Gnome Appearance Preferences window, or you can use the installer on the Orta Settings Manager (recommended if you want to install for all users including root). Now you can go through the various tabs of the Settings Manager and setup the theme according to your preferences. When you are done click the save button. Make sure you select another theme on the Appearance Preferences dialog that pops up, and then go back to Orta in order to apply your changes.

Leave the orta folder alone, it includes the Orta Settings Manager files .

Inside the Chromium folder, you will find a Chromium theme and different sizes of scrollbars to install.

Inside the Awn folder you will find an Avant Window Navigator lucido style. There are also 5 emerald themes inside the emerald folder.


The pixmaps are licensed under the Creative Commons non commercial share alike license, and the code under GPL v3. I've also included the original xcf sources of the pixmaps so that anyone can easily modify the theme to his/hers preferences.



- Synaptic fix for gtk2-engines-pixbuf version 2.20 and older.

- Main menu icon size reverted to 22.

Great work ... pidgin, gnumeric and turpial ¿bug?

Pidgin: focused tabs on IM windows are unreadable

Gnumeric: tabs on spreadsheets are colored over the theme tab-style

Turpial: update windows present some issues

Again, great job

The pidgin issue is a known bug with pidgin itself, it uses the same text color for normal and active tabs. You could try using the light or smooth tabs which work fine with it. As for gnumeric, it has this bug with every pixmap theme there is, and i can't fix it (i've tried).

The issues with Turpial are caused by the fact that GtkDrawingArea is drawing its own background instead of following the gradient. This i might be able to fix in a future update.

 ViewModeButton bug

There is a bug with ViewModeButton(right) in Nautilus Elementary.

If you hide MenuBar you can see rectangle around ViewModeButton, also you could repeat bug just moving this button in another position.

Great theme. Thank You.

But on your screen shots all is OK: no MenuBar, no noisy rectangle. Did you use globalmenu for this?

Fire Up Orta Settings Manager and go to the Nautilus page. Select style for Nautilus Elementary, press save and reload the theme.

This is a bug with Java (Swing). It uses a GtkMenu instead of a GtkMenuBar, so when you use darks menus the menubar text is of java apps is light colored (the same color the dark menus use for the menu items text). Unfortunately i can do nothing about it.
