New Elementary Theme Released with Dark Panels

Elementary Theme has hit version 2.0 that brings dark panels and menus and new breadcrumbs among other new features and fixes.

Other Changes:
  • New Breadcrumb and Modebutton style for Nautilus Elementary
  • New Dark Panel style with Dark Menus
  • Revised Midori sidebar
  • All new Murrine Buttons
  • Scrollbars drawn with Murrine instead of Pixmap
  • Dropped Equinox Engine
  • Brighter colours
  • New Progressbars
  • New Listview style
  • Tons of XFCE improvements
You can download the new theme from here


The new theme package is not yet uploaded to the Elementary Art PPA. You can add the PPA to your sources though by running following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementaryart/ppa
sudo apt-get update

The PPA will also have Elementary Icons 2.5 some time soon. So it will be a good idea to add it to your sources if you haven't. A teaser of upcoming Elementary Icons 2.5 posted by DanRabbit on Deviantart sometime back:

Dark Panels:

You can enable dark panels by editing gtkrc file in /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-2.0

At the bottom of the file you will find the following line:

include "Apps/panel.rc"

Now, replace it with:

include "Apps/panel-dark.rc"

That's it. Enjoy the new faster and cleaner elementary theme in your Ubuntu desktop.
