GNOME Shell - Smooth Inset

This is a smooth looking GNOME Shell theme using new features like inset.

Wallpaper by Bo0xVn [link]


Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes.

GNOME Tweak Tool

Make sure you have user-theme-extension installed. Load the GNOME Tweak Tool and go to Shell Extensions and click the "Use Theme Extension" switch. Now go to "Theme" and click the Shell Theme box and locate your theme zip. Now you can select the theme in the dropdown box. Make sure you selection the right version for the GNOME version you have, otherwise the theme will not show properly.

If you run GNOME 3.4, just extract the 3.4 version to ~/.themes

This is a really nice theme! Could you update it for 3.8?

Primero, el wey habla ingles, esta algo difícil que te responda si no habla español o tu no le hablas en ingles, no crees?, segundo, usa signos de interrogación, es una pregunta lo que hiciste no?

Not really sure why but I keep getting an invalid theme error when I try to install.

You have to extract the zip file you want, i.e 3.0 or and then load which ever one into the gnome tweak tool.

I realized that after I made the comment sadly. Quick question though, do you know of a way to extend this to the window theme as well?

There is no matching GTK3 theme that I know of.
justnice980's avatar
That would be awesome if there was.
half-left's avatar
Possibly a feature project for GTK3. :p
Nice! Just one thing, what are the fonts/size you're using?
half-left's avatar
Thanks. Font and size are set in the theme, no special font or sizes in that shot.
