Theme for MATE 1.16.2 : GTK2 or GTK3 ?

Postby MikeEcho » 2018-10-06 18:14

Hey,

I would like to change the ugly default theme of MATE 1.16.2 which, as you may know, isn't full-GTK3. I have a Stretch standard install and wouldn't like to use any backports.

So which themes am i supposed to use ? GTK2 or GTK3 ?

http://mate-desktop.org/themes/

Is Ultimate Maia (https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1193879/) going to work out of the box ?

the theme needs to provide both.
preferably it should provide different gtk3 versions also, or be compatible with the gtk3 version you use.
to understand what i mean, have a look at example output from one of my themes:
Code: Select all
ls -l /usr/share/themes/sometheme
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4.0K Apr 10  2016 gtk-2.0/
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4.0K Apr 10  2016 gtk-3.14/
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4.0K Apr 10  2016 gtk-3.16/
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4.0K Apr 10  2016 gtk-3.18/
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4.0K Apr 10  2016 openbox-3/
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root    8 Apr 10  2016 gtk-3.0 -> gtk-3.18/
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  306 Apr 10  2016 index.theme
