Installation

  • GTK 3.16
  • GTK 3.18
  • GTK 3.20

Supported Ubuntu OS versions

  • 16.04 LTS
  • 16.10

Manual Installation

How To Install:

  1. Download

  2. Extract to /usr/share/themes or ~/.themes (create it (in your home folder) if necessary)

  3. Change via distribution specific tweak tool

Note: If your distribution doesn't ship separate development packages you just need GTK 3 instead of the -dev packages.

For the theme to function properly, install the following

  • Gnome Shell, GTK 3.14 - 3.22
  • The gnome-themes-standard package
  • The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
    • gtk-engine-murrine (Arch)
    • gtk2-engines-murrine (Mint, Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
    • gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
    • gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
    • gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)

After the installation is complete you can activate the theme from the settings menu, or with gnome-tweak-tool or a similar program by selecting Unbroken as the Cinnamon theme.

Uninstall

Run

sudo rm -rf /usr/share/themes/Unbroken

Extras

Firefox theme

Unbroken looks great with the Arc theme for Firefox, available at github.com/horst3180/arc-firefox-theme

Unbroken icon theme

The Unbroken theme is currently designed to work with the Arc icon theme, available at github.com/horst3180/arc-icon-theme

Chrome/Chromium theme

To install the Chrome/Chromium theme go to the Extra folder and drag and drop the unbroken.crx file into the Chrome/Chromium window. The source of the Chrome themes is located in the source folder Unbroken/extra/Chrome/unbroken.crx.

Troubleshooting

If you have Ubuntu with a newer GTK/Gnome version than the one included by default (i.e Ubuntu 14.04 with GTK 3.14 or Ubuntu 15.04 with GTK 3.16, etc.) you have to install the theme manually as described above. This is also true for other distros with a different GTK/Gnome version than the one included by default

If you get artifacts like black or invisible backgrounds under Unity, disable overlay scrollbars with

gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal
