Desktop Suite for Xfce

The Greybird desktop suite is a complete package for all parts of the desktop environment. It 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

Dependencies for Gtk+2 support:

  • gtk2-engines-murrine (>= 0.90)

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