CathexiS Suite

136 Favourites


I love to play with my desktop setup so i decided to share one more theme suite with you ppl ... CathexiS is simple, minimal, distraction free foundation for building your desktop experience. It's dark theme which will stay in background while you work but in a same time it can be really attractive when you want to show your desktop around ... Your Openbox desktop can look really nice with this suite ...

What you get ?

  • GTK2 Theme
  • GTK3 Theme
  • Openbox Theme
  • Tint2 Theme
  • Conky Theme
  • Slim Theme
  • Terminal styles
  • Fonts

Icon theme

Im using Clarity Icons by jcubic


For theme to work properly you need to have gtk engines installed. GTK2 theme is using murrine engine and GTK3 theme is using unico engine. Ubuntu users should have those already installed and if you use archlinux it's easy to install.

pacman -S gtk-engine-murrine gtk-engine-unico

Great stuff! Except that in Openbox, the Dock borders are way too huge (I usually put Conky there). And in GTK, the active tab in Firefox is unreadable.
Except for that, I love it. :-)

So far I managed to at least change a little bit the tab title color (unselected) without messing to much so I could see the text...
Same file:
line 6, just trying different colors so it could be read.

I don't see my scrollbars either (FF)...
But if you open:
and go to line 96 and change "FALSE" TO "TRUE" they become the same color of your selected items.
That's cool. I hope I helped somebody with the same problem :^D
Now I have to figure out the tabs... any ideas?...
carlosovni's avatar
Saved in my "bckups" drive! Congratulations, it's smooth, elegant and awesome!

Just my FF tabs titles disapear when not focused, chromium does it alright... any ideas?
I wonder if I hack the css in FF it will do it... :^/
