Greybird is dual-licensed as GPLv2 or later and CC-BY-SA 3.0 or later.

Greybird is the default theme in Xubuntu 11.04 onwards.

The Greybird desktop suite includes:

  • Gtk+2 theme
  • Gtk+3 theme
  • Xfwm4 themes (normal and compact)
  • xfce-notifyd theme (dark and bright)
  • Emerald theme
  • Metacity theme
  • Mutter theme
  • Gnome Shell theme
  • Plank theme
  • Unity support

Dependencies for Gtk+2 support:

  • gtk2-engines-murrine (>= 0.90)

The Gtk+3 theme uses the builtin engine and consequently has no dependencies.
