GNOME Shell: eOS

IMPORTANT: This theme is no longer under development by myself. Get this instead



eOS is a GNOME Shell theme that gives your GNOME desktop an 'Elementary' feel.

I ported a lot of features from DanRabbit's mockups and actual eOS parts, like: Plank, Pantheon Shell, Wing Panel... My goal is to make the most accurate Elementary theme.

Known Bugs

- None. But I would appreciate it if actual elementary users compared this theme and their eOS to see if something is off. I want to have a 1:1 clone. :)

08/02/2012: 1.2.1
30/05/2012: 1.4
27/11/2012: 1.6

- Fixed for GNOME Shell 3.6.

This depends on: Droid Sans and Open Sans(light).

Ubuntu users can install this and/or a previous version from the Noobslab PPA(not officially supported by myself):

Works on 3.14 or 3.16?
0rAX0's avatar
I don't think so, but you could try and see. :)
XxdarkChaosMLG2xX's avatar
Done. kinda plausible in 15.10 beta it may go over the edge but it looks nice
works on 3.4?
0rAX0's avatar
It's for 3.6, but you can try. :)
For those who missed the announcement: Theme is on GitHub here:

@0rAX0 : Could you perhaps update the description with the link, so that people are aware of the situation?
0rAX0's avatar
Thanks, I've been trying to update since forever and keep forgetting. :P

Does it support 3.8 now?

0rAX0's avatar
No, sorry. I didn't get any contributions except one, and it was incomplete. :(
StingBL's avatar
It's a pity because I really like your work...but you don't have to be sorry at all, nobody paid you!!! :)
0rAX0's avatar
Thanks. I'll think of something for 3.10. ;)
StingBL's avatar
Any news for 3.8 update? IMHO this is one of the best themes around and I really like to see it in 3.8.
0rAX0's avatar
Please take a look at my recent journal entry.

Will it be updated for 3.8?
0rAX0's avatar
Hopefully, yes. Although I don't have a date yet. Kind of too tired to work on anything ATM. :-P
Ivo-Majic-IM's avatar
Maybe it would be a good idea to put the source code on GitHub, so other people can help. I have been tinkering with it myself, and would like to help. No theme I have used so far can match this one in terms of smooth looks...
0rAX0's avatar
Thanks. I'm considering doing just that.
