[Updated] Elementary Borderless GTK3 Theme for Unity and Gnome Shell

Elementary Borderless is a GTK3 theme by tista, inspired by the original elementary GTK2 and the new GTK3 theme in upcoming Elementary Luna OS. The theme also supports GTK2 borderless version, metacity, and xfwm4.

Here is another screenshot:

Though the theme works fine, there are some things that you should keep in mind:
  • As the theme does not have support for window borders, you will only be able to resize window from top corners, i.e from window titlebars or you can use ALT+F8 keyboard shortcut.
  • Icons and files on desktop have dark text so the names may not be visible properly.
  • You may need to logout and relogin for the full theme to take effect (in both Unity and Gnome Shell).

The theme has been updated with following changes:
  • Window Control buttons for maximized window on Unity.
  • Changed panel color scheme from dark to light and added font-shadow.
  • Added xfce4-panel suppot partially with gtk2 theming.

The theme is available in a PPA but I won't recommend adding it as it contains many other experimental/unstable packages.
