meson_options.txt general: Add gtk2-solid-menu option to meson Mar 17, 2019


New build option implemented in 1.16 - gtk2-solid-menu, by default it is turned off. Looks bad in Gnome, but provides better expirience for Xfce/Sway users. Screenshot from Xfce with comparison. Installation section updated with option description.


Simple and clean gtk theme, based on original Adwaita.
Supported desktop environments: gnome 3.28+, xfce 4.12+.
Theme also provides Lounge-aux icon theme - auxiliary set of symbolic icons for better user experience.


Fedora users can install theme via copr:
sudo dnf copr enable monday15/lounge
sudo dnf install lounge-gtk-theme

Fedora users will get Lounge-aux as a weak dependency with Adwaita as a main icon theme, for other icon themes - build theme with custom icon-theme option.

meson (0.45+)
gtk-murrine-engine (gtk2-engines-murrine for debian/ubuntu).

gtk-murrine-engine only needed for xfce theme and Lounge-night gtk2 theme.

  • Download and decompress source tarball (or clone repository);

  • Build theme:
    meson build

    Additional options are availiable, to use them add -D before option name and set value after: -Doption='value', quotes needed only if value has multiple words separated by space. For example,
    meson build -Dshell-font='Liberation Sans' -Dicon-theme=Suru -Dgtk2-solid-menu=true
    builds gnome-shell theme with Liberation Sans font, Lounge-aux icon theme that will inherit icons from Suru icon theme and with gtk2 theme fixes for Xfce desktop.

    Option Description
    gtk2-solid-menu Use solid border for menus in gtk2 theme - highly recommended option for Xfce/Sway users, but looks bad in GNOME; can be true or false (default: false)
    icon-theme Specify main icon theme for Lounge-aux (default: Adwaita)
    icons Install Lounge-aux, can be true or false (default: true)
    shell-font Specify font for gnome-shell theme (default: Roboto)
  • Install theme:
    sudo ninja -C build install


Flatpak apps support available via Flathub:
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
flatpak install flathub org.gtk.Gtk3theme.Lounge
flatpak install flathub org.gtk.Gtk3theme.Lounge-night
