Numix Blue GTK Theme: Modded without 'Unity boxes' by ChrisFR06 Numix Blue GTK Theme: Modded without 'Unity boxes' by ChrisFR06
I just made up a Remix of the "Numix Blue" original theme. The only changes are that I managed to remove the "Unity boxes" around the apps of the Ubuntu Unity launcher Nod  
This change only works on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or higher. On other versions of Ubuntu it's unfortunately not possible to remove the "Unity boxes"...

(After selecting my theme, you will have to minimize and then unminimize the Ubuntu Tweak / Unity Tweak Tool window once, so the changes can apply to the Unity bar)

I hope you will enjoy this flat, simplistic theme. If you wonder where I got my icons : they are from the Moka / Faba icon packs, you can download them or get the PPA here :D (Big Grin) :
The wallpaper you can see on my desktop :…

*(sorry if the screenshot is in french, it's because... I'm french)

Share this work with your friends if you liked it, it helps alot Giggle

Any experience about the compatibility with elementaryOS?
ChrisFR06 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
As it is a GTK theme it should work fine, but as ElementaryOS does not use Unity, you will only see the windows changing, as the Ubuntu and the Elementary dock isn't the same. Feel free to try out this theme on your OS to see what it actually does Nod

Very nice, i love it ) But when i installed Moka icons pack, iv got some ugly icons in my top panel instead of ubuntu-dark icons =(
ChrisFR06 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
This Numix modded theme is just a GTK theme so the Moka icon pack has nothing to do with it. If you are having problems with your Moka Top panel icons, make sure you have the latest version of the Moka pack installed ( ) and/or go check out their support page ! :meh:

Thank you! I really wanted a blue version, the orange/red is not for me!

You're welcome. I also don't like orange that much so I'm using this blue theme :)

sympa, tu as modifié quelle partie du css pour enlever les boxes ? si je me trompe pas je crois que unity gère maintenant les css en natif.. je suis pas un grand fan de numix (même si'l est assez sympa ) alors j'aimerais faire pareil sur mon theme ^^

Comment tu sais que je suis français LOL ? Oui, depuis Ubuntu 14.04, Unity a des nouvelles options de theming, si tu veux modifier les "boxes d'Unity" sur ton propre thème préféré, j'ai un tuto sur YouTube (en fait il suffit de rajouter des images .svg ou autre transparentes dans le dossier "unity" de ton thème, comme ça Unity va remplacer les boxes par les différents images transparentes et tu ne verra plus les boxes) :… ! Malheureusement je fais rarement des vidéos tuto donc elle est un peu nulle la vidéo, mais j'espère que tu vas la comprendre quand même Nod
