Dusk Theme is one of my favorite theme after the Wall-light theme. The dusk theme has a clean, modern, functional, dan unique concept. After checking the Dusk Theme Artwork, and finally it available to download. People already waiting for this theme. It’s cool! No doubt about it! After using this theme for a while, I got started to hoping that Intrepid will add both of my favorite theme(Wall Light and Dusk Theme).

Well, without wasting more times lets go to the main point,

Download Dust theme (.tar.gz)
(Updated September 10) Untar this file to ~/.themes and select it via System -> Preferences -> Appearance.

For Hardy, this theme requires Murrine from SVN. Compile it using:

sudo apt-get install subversion intltool libgtk2.0-dev libtool
svn checkout http://svn.gnome.org/svn/murrine/trunk/ murrine-svn
cd murrine-svn
./autogen.sh --enable-animation --prefix=/usr
make && sudo make install

Click the picture to enlarge it.

The wallpaper? No problem, here is the wallpaper download link

Other Cool stuffs to try

  • The mockups have borderless windows. To have this, go to your theme’s settings (Under System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Customize) and under the “Window Border” tab, select “Dust Borderless.”

  • Transparent panel
    Try setting your panel background (right click at panel -> Properties -> Background -> Background image) to ~/.themes/Dust/panel-background.png.

  • Compiz decorator settings
    If you’re using Compiz and you find the titlebar transparency weird, you can try running the script Dust_compiz_settings.sh (included in the download) to fix.
