Minimalistic GTK themes

Stilo themes Wallpapers | Icons | Fonts: Roboto / SF Mono | GNOME shell extension: Dash to Panel


  • GNOME Shell 3.30+
  • GTK 3.24.6+

I can't guarantee that the themes will look as intended on older versions.

Some of these packages may already be installed by default on some distros.

  • Debian/Ubuntu/Mint - apt install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf fonts-roboto ninja-build git meson sassc
  • Arch/Manjaro/Antergos - Available in the Arch User Repository: stilo-themes-git
  • Opensuse - zypper in gtk2-engine-murrine gtk2-engines google-roboto-fonts ninja git meson sassc
  • Fedora - dnf install gtk-murrine-engine gtk2-engines google-roboto-fonts ninja-build git meson sassc

Other distros may have named the above packages differently.


When the above requirements are installed, simply run these commands:

git clone
cd stilo-themes
meson build
sudo ninja -C build install

The themes will be installed in: /usr/share/themes

Updating the theme

Navigate to the stilo-themes folder that was originally cloned. (If you removed it, do the steps above instead).

Then simply run:

git pull
sudo ninja -C build install

Changing themes

Use gnome-tweaks to change themes.

You can also change your GTK themes using a terminal.

# Changing the theme to Stiloetto-dark, simply run
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme Stiloetto-dark

# Reverting the change to the default GNOME theme
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme Adwaita

Xfce users can change themes in Settings > Appearance and Settings > Window manager

Removing the themes

As root, remove the Stilo Stiloetto Stilo-dark Stiloetto-dark folders located in /usr/share/themes

You can’t perform that action at this time.
