Make Vimix the default Manjaro GNOME theme



I’ve been testing several themes. I like the Matcha one and I’ve heard is the one manjaro dev will support. Which is great. However I would like to recommend another theme that comes in so many flavors: Vimix - currently you can find it in AUR and from my tests it works and looks great. And the fact that it has so many flavors it makes it, in my view, the perfect candidate for the default Manjaro Gnome theme.

From github:

Vimix is a flat Material Design theme for GTK 3, GTK 2 and Gnome-Shell which supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like Gnome, Unity, Budgie, Pantheon, XFCE, Mate, etc.


Moved to #manjaro-development:feature-request #theme

Good suggestion. The beryl variant matches well.


After many tests, the best theme i found to also line up for the GDM theme too is

Once is installed, you can make use of the gnome-shell-theme.gresource from the theme and use it in /usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource so the GDM will look the same …


The vimix icon theme is missing an icon for “software” (pamac-manager):

With Papirus-Adapta-Maia icon theme it looks fine:


I think Vimix has Grub theme as well and


Haven’t tried the Vimix icons that well. Good to know


Not referring to grub theme as i don’t use one, but the GDM theme, prior to log in with the username and password in the Gnome Desktop. :slight_smile:


Ah sorry my bad I read it wrongly :smiley:
