Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? I hope you are all having a good day, I am busy trying to work on more Ubuntu Gaming articles for you all to enjoy, apparently our last two Linux gaming articles released last week are a big, big hit so I will write more this week, you will love these ones too, anyway read on…

Today we will focus on a gorgeous Linux desktop theme that is available for those of you who are running Ubuntu 20.04. I just love the hue-darkish blue colored folders, check out these screenshots to see what I mean lol but first read about the requirements you need to make this theme for your Linux OS.

About Arc Theme Features

Arc is a flat theme with transparent elements for GTK 3, GTK 2 and Gnome-Shell. It supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like Gnome, Unity, Budgie, Pantheon, etc.


  • Gnome/GTK 3.14 or 3.16
  • The gtk2-engines-pixbuf package only for Debian/Ubuntu based distros.
  • The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
    • gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
    • gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
    • gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
    • gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
    • gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)

Main distributions that meet these requirements are:

  • Arch Linux and Arch Linux based distros
  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • elementary OS Freya
  • Debian Jessie, Testing or Unstable
  • Gentoo
  • Fedora 21 and 22
  • OpenSuse 13.2 and Tumbleweed

Derivatives of these distributions should work.
