~ An Elegant Dark Theme ~
Dorian has many  unique characteristics. Such as, hovered buttons grow in size and insensitive buttons/widgets have a diagonal pattern distinguishing them from normal or active states.
The Window Manger is designed to use only the close button.

The wall of San Francisco from the Bay Bridge has no author listed.
Icons are F-Dark(Faenza).

This version has been built on top of the Adwaita Theme.
  • Gtk2 & Gtk3 Themes
  • Metacity/Mutter/Unity Themes
  • Firefox Theme
  • Gnome-Shell Theme
  • Xfce4-Notify
  • Xfwm4 Theme
  • Openbox Theme
  • Ubuntu-Software-Center

  • gtk-3.12.*
  • gtk-2.24.17(or newer)
  • pixbuf-engine or the gtk(2)engines-package
  • gtk-engine-murrine-0.98.2(or newer)
  • Download the Dorian Theme package from the top of this page.
    Unzip the archive, and copy the dorian-theme-3.12 folder to '/usr/share/themes/' for system-wide installation, or to '~/.themes' for individual use installation.
  • Arch Linux & Manjaro
    Install from Arch Linux AUR
    If using yaourt, type in terminal:
    yaourt -S dorian-theme
  • Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 & Utopic 14.10 (Thank You to Noobslab for hosting!)
    In Terminal type:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install dorian-theme-3.12

Unpack the Dorian-theme package and locate the FireFox folder. You will find a 'chrome' folder inside.  Next go to '~/.mozilla/firefox/xSomeNumbers.default'.
  • If there is no 'chrome' folder, just copy and paste the one form inside the Dorian-theme package.
  • If there is a 'chrome' folder, merge its contents with the appropriate 'chrome' folder from within the Dorian-theme package.
  • Restart Firefox to apply the theme.
User Profile You may also desire to create a new User-Profile for the Dorian-Theme since it  hard-code's the look appearance. To do this simply open firefox with a trailing '-p', for example: firefix -p
a small gui will appear.  Choose create profile and follow the instructions.  If you would like this gui to appear at every start-up(recommended) so you can choose your profile un-tick 'Don't ask at startup', or you can always start the app with the '-p' to change profiles again.

5-09-2014  First Beta release.
5-11-2014  Second Beta.  Fixed dialog buttons.  Fixed Nautilus Pathbar button from expanding when hovered.  Reworking of the Buttons altogether.  Changed the design of the hovered button state using padding instead of border-width; It gives a much cleaner look.
5-14-2014  Buttons fixed, finally.  I had to return to the border-width style.  Nautilus Pathbar reworked.  Overhaul of base theme look.  Lighter column-headers.  This version should be proper usable.
5-16-2014  Gtk3 is finished, with the exception of a few minor changes I would like to make.  Nemo is themed.  The Backdrop state is themed.  Osd is themed; this is only the second time i've themed the Overlay widgets. Inform me if they aren't all working properly.
5-18-2014  Gtk3 got a little more work, including default-buttons.  Firefox theme vs. 0.1 finished and included within theme package.
5-22-2014  Ubuntu Window-Manger theme is fixed, and other Ubuntu specific design needs have been addressed.
5-26-2014  Gnome-Shell Theme added.  The theme is a work in progress but usable.  It defaults to Adwaita theme for those widgets I haven't themed yet.
5-27-2014  Gnome-Shell Theme changes.  Feedback would be helpful.
5-31-2014  Finished Gnome-Shell(for now).  Dash-To-Dock specifically themed (Doesn't work with GDM3setup enabled, ???).  Gtk2 is next.
6-04-2014  Gtk2 is finished.  Taking the theme out of Beta.
6-04-2014  Fixed issue with wallpaper being coved over when "Have file manager handle the desktop" feature is on.
6-09-2014  Xfwm4 Theme added.  Reworked Gnome-Shell Theme(not sure about the change).
10-02-2014  Fixed backdrop progressbar colors to make it visible.  Fixed the active button text color when in backdrop state so that it is now visible.
10-13-2014  Opera Browser fixed url bar, it is now usable.  This is last fix for 3.12.

Please submit bug reports.  Thank You.
