Clearlooks Dusk

GTK2 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on


This theme is a dark grey colourscheme for the Clearlooks engine. It is pretty generic and can be edited easily. At the bottom of the gtkrc file is a commented section for setting GAIM's buddy list background (just give it a valid filename).

NOTE: This theme is designed to work with the original (and best) Clearlooks engine, in other words if your system has the shiny "Clearlooks 2" installed then this theme will look awful. This is not my fault, it is the fault of whoever merged 2 different themes under the same name rather than keeping them seperate. For reference Ubuntu Dapper uses Clearlooks 1, but Ubuntu Edgy uses Clearlooks 2. To get Clearlooks 1 on Edgy I downloaded the source for Dapper's gtk2-engines from, compiled it into a package with checkinstall then fiddled with the control file to stop it getting overwritten by updates. Please comment if you would like me to explain this on the Ubuntu help wiki and put a link here. I only use Ubuntu, so haven't messed around with any other distros' systems.

I notice that people tend to ask what stuff is in screenshots so I thought I'd preempt them a bit.

The icon theme is buuf, either this one: or this one I forget.

The window manager is Enlightenment 0.16.18 (with composite support) and the darkOne theme from here:

The desktop background is this: (actually that is Kdesktop running and it cycles through different images every 5-10mins, different images per desktop :P )

Other than that there is Nautilus (with icons zoomed to 150% by default), Epiphany, gkrellm and Cairo Clock with one of the default themes. The weird colour thing in the top right is a translucent Amarok visualisation.

OK, so no questions about what is in the screenshot :)
