Numix Frost

A modern flat theme with a combination of light and dark elements. It supports GNOME, Cinnamon, Xfce, and Openbox.

By The Numix Project  In collaboration with: antergos  Circle CI  Supports GTK+ 3.18  Supports GTK+ 3.22

Manual installation

First, you need to compile the theme using the Sass compiler.

To install Sass, install ruby and the gem command using your distro's package manager. Then install sass with the gem command,

gem install sass

You'll also need the glib-compile-schemas and gdk-pixbuf-pixdata commands in your path to generate the gresource binary. Install them using your distribution's package manager.

Debian, Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libxml2-utils


sudo dnf install glib2-devel gdk-pixbuf2-devel

Arch Linux

sudo pacman -S glib2 gdk-pixbuf2

After installing all the dependencies, switch to the cloned directory and, run the following in Terminal,

sudo make install

To set the theme in Gnome, run the following commands in Terminal,

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Numix-Frost"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "Numix-Frost"

To set the theme in Xfce, run the following commands in Terminal,

xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/ThemeName -s "Numix-Frost"
xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/theme -s "Numix-Frost"

For developers

If you want to hack on the theme, make sure you have the inotifywait command available, which is used for watching and automatically building the files.

To start watching for changes, run the following,

make watch

If you change any assets, you'll need to regenerate the gtk.gresource.xml and gtk.gresource files. You can use grrr to do it easily.
