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.
Debian or Ubuntu:
sudo apt install autoconf libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libglib2.0-bin librsvg2-dev meson ruby-sass sassc
dnf install gdk-pixbuf2-devel librsvg2-devel meson rubygem-sass
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
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.
