Latest commit

Xfwm4 added the ability to crop maximized borders in commit bf41e461.

This seems to require themes to use frame_border_top to
hide the top frame when maximized (if the option is checked
in xfwm4-tweaks-settings).

Greybird

Desktop Suite for Xfce

URL: https://github.com/shimmerproject/Greybird

Copyright 2009–2019 Simon Steinbeiß, Satyajit Sahoo, Pasi Lallinaho, Carson Black, Maurizio Galli

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.

Build dependencies

Debian or Ubuntu:

sudo apt install autoconf libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libglib2.0-bin librsvg2-dev meson ruby-sass sassc

Fedora:

dnf install gdk-pixbuf2-devel librsvg2-devel meson rubygem-sass

openSUSE:

zypper in fdupes gdk-pixbuf-devel gdk-pixbuf-loader-rsvg glib2-devel meson sassc

Build and Install

Local (User) Install

meson --prefix=$HOME/.local builddir
cd builddir
ninja
ninja install
ln -sf ~/.local/share/themes ~/.themes # Required for GTK2

System Install

meson --prefix=/usr builddir
cd builddir
ninja
ninja install

You don't need to use sudo anywhere in the build and install process, as Ninja will elevate with polkit when needed.
