Equinox GTK Engine

Equinox GTK Engine

Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  226809
Submitted:  Mar 20 2010
Updated:  Apr 27 2011


A heavily modified version of the beautiful Aurora engine (1.4). Thanks to his author.

IMPORTANT! Since version 1.40, the file below contains only the engine source. You can download themes (both GTK and Metacity) from the second and third links :
- The five Equinox Evolution themes are new offical ones and will get some updates in the future. Only these themes are now included in the theme package available from the Launchpad PPA
- The original themes are no longer maintained (but still usable).

Engine installation

First of all, make sure you have installed the GTK+ library development files (libgtk2.0-dev on Debian/Ubuntu, gtk2-devel on Fedora) with your favourite package manager.

Then to compile the Equinox engine, extract the corresponding archive in your home folder. In the new directory, run the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation

On Fedora 64 bits (and perhaps other distribs), compilation don't work with the options above. You must run:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-animation

Finally, run this command as root:
make install

Themes installation

To install the themes, extract the content of the other archive in your ~/.themes.

You can easily change the colour used for selected items or tooltips in Appearance preferences.

To fix the issue with the text of selected menu items in Firefox and Thunderbird, copy the userChrome.css in both ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/ and ~/.thunderbird/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/

To use the Equinox Evolution theme with Chromium or Google Chrome, open the browser and drag the CRX file (provided in the themes archive) into the address bar. In applications options, don't forget to enable the display of Metacity borders.

A (still uncomplete) version of Faenza icon theme is now available. Follow the link a the bottom of this page.

Hi tiheum,

First of all thanks a lot for make this theme and Faenza icons, it's a truly great work. I've a little problem, buttons on window list applet don't show bottom side. Please take a look to the next screenshot (comparison with Clearlooks theme)


This happens in any variant of Equinox theme. How can I fix it in the gtkrc file?

Thanks in advance!

Nice tutorial dude. Also anyone who needs further help on installing themes could search youtube. There's a very good channel on youtube on tutorial giving introduction and installation procedure on different types of Linux themes. I think you'll find that helpful.

 GTK3 port?

 by DDZ on: Feb 9 2012
Score 63%


Is it possible to port your great engine to GTK3?
I think it will be very nice :

- to harmonize different toolkits themes (GTK2 and GTK3)
- to get GTK3 applications appearance much better.

Thank you in advance for your answer!

 Excellent Engine!

I had only used Murrine-engine and Pixmaps before my most recent endevour. I just have never liked working with murrine...So I took the leep with Equinox, and Its the best themeing experience I have had with gtk2. Its cleanly designed, It is elegant in appearence, and most importantly it doesn't get in the way. I guess what I am trying to say is, Great Job! ThankYou
