This is a Flat theme for Ubuntu and other Gnome based Linux Systems.

Overview

Flatabulous

Update - I am looking for additional collaborators and maintainers to help me out with this. I have been keeping busy lately, and have been using Ubuntu sporadically, so it would be nice to have some help!

Flatabulous

This is a Flat theme for Ubuntu and other debian based Linux Systems. This is based on the Ultra-Flat theme. Special thanks to @steftrikia and Satyajit Sahoo for the original work.

Installation

Update

Install it manually, if you are on Ubuntu 16.04 or higher. If you prefer the .deb installers, please download the correct one, based on the version from here.

This theme was designed specially for the Unity environment on Ubuntu as I have only tested it on Ubuntu. It might not work properly for the other versions.

Imgur The terminal

To install the theme, you must first install the Unity Tweak Tool. It can be installed by simply running the command:

sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

Update

If you are on Ubuntu 16.04 or higher, run the commands below to install Ubuntu Tweak:

wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu xenial-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

or head over to their website, downloading the .deb file (recommended).

1. Using the .deb file for Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives (Recommended)

Download the .deb file from here, double click to open with Ubuntu Software Center and click on install. Then, install the theme using ubuntu-tweak.

2. Using the noobslab PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flatabulous-theme

3. Manually

Download the source to the theme here. If a problem occurs with your installation, kindly download the correct version based on your version of Ubuntu from here. If you are a developer or a designer, I also encourage you to contribute to it. Create a folder, called .theme in your home directory. This can be simply created by firing up your terminal, and then running

mkdir .themes

Now this is a hidden directory, to view this in Nautilus, you can press Ctrl/⌘ + H. Alternatively, you can also place the extracted files in your /usr/share/themes/ folder.

Flat Icons

Flat Icons Dashboard

For icons, I use the ultra-flat-icons theme. It is available in blue (recommended), orange and mint green colors. To install this, you can run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/icons
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons

Alternatively, you could also run sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons-orange OR sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons-green.

based on you color preference. I recommend these flat icons, but you can also look at Numix and Flattr.

Now press your super key, search for Ubuntu Tweak and fire it. Under the tweaks tab, there is an option for theme. Under that select the Flatabulous theme. Under the icon settings, select ultra-flat-icons. Restart your computer, and you should be good to go! You computer will look something like this after you restart.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q. What is your Sublime Text theme ?

A. My Sublime text theme is a port of Brogrammer and Numix themes, which I have tweaked a little using this awesome tool for better contrast and colors. My exact version can be found here.

Quentin Gerodel has also contributed a version for Atom, which can be found here.

Q. Where can I find your wallpaper ?

A. This wallpaper can be found here and here.

Q. What are your terminal theme and settings ?

A. I am presently using zsh with oh-my-zsh configuration. For the colorscheme, I am using a modified version of the default tango colors, material colors and the one dark scheme.

My zsh config can be found here. This works if you have powerline fonts installed and oh-my-zsh setup. All other dotfiles can be found here.

Here is a script that will add a new profile in gnome-terminal that mimics my terminal settings.

A one liner install can be done by running the command

wget -O xt http://git.io/vn6HM && chmod +x xt && ./xt && rm xt

I have my terminal set at 10% transparency. More cool color schemes can be found here, for a variety of other terminals.

  • Wrong color for the Metacity theme

    Wrong color for the Metacity theme

    Hello, On Ubuntu Mate (that uses Metacity themes for WM), I noticed that the border color looks lighter than it should. In the theme screenshots (taken on Unity, thus not using Metacity), the theme uses #2d2d2d as border color; in metacity-theme-1.xml, it is set instead to #424242 for some reason and doesn't match the windows' menu.

  • Provide an easy show the bg color in the Unity launcher again

    Provide an easy show the bg color in the Unity launcher again

    Usually an application icon in the Unity launcher, whenever that application is running, has a background color calculated based on the colors of that icon. I think this not only looks better but it also makes it easier to see if an app is running. Please provide a way to enable that again.

    This image is an example of another theme that does this. Firefox is running, Thunderbird not.

    Hi..

    I use your theme on both laptop and desktop, and wanted to hear if you are gonna support Ubuntu 16.04 as well? It should be quite close to 15.10 since it uses it same nautilus.

    Thank you for a great theme!

  • Add focus style

    Add focus style

    I like that theme very much. Sadly I hempers the use of keyboard navigation. When I tab through my file explorer nautilus or through web forms there’s no hint which button is in focus at the moment. The Adwaita themes give focussed buttons an orange border. Maybe a thick dark grey border would be a possible focus indicator for Flatabulous? (a thicker border because grey is not a colour that stands out alone)
