Robert's Rices 2016

Robert Washbourne - 3 years ago - themes

Last year, I got into Linux "ricing", which means customization of your desktop. Over the course of 2016, I made several configs, and I would like to share a few of my favorites with you.

[GNOME] Minimal Panel

GNOME 3.2 with all my icons in the panel.

  • Icons: Papirus Icons
  • Gtk: Arc-Darker
  • Firefox: Arc-Darker Firefox theme
  • Wallpaper: Unsplash

I am using a fork of the MMOD panel gnome extension. Download the extension, then add it to ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/. If you use GNOME 2.20 or later, run gnome-shell --version and add your version to the extension's metadata.json.

[Openbox] Sunset

My most recent, and overall favorite rice.

  • Icons: Modified Paper Icons
  • Gtk: Modified Arc-Dark
  • Window theme: Custom (OB-DevPy)
  • Firefox: Arc-Darker Firefox theme with this added css.
  • Lock: xwobf with i3lock-colors
  • Wallpaper: Unsplash


  1. Download Paper Icon Theme then run this script in the [Extracted Paper]/Paper folder. Then move the icons to ~/.icons/.
  2. Download the Arc-DevPy-Red Theme from github and extract it to ~/.themes/.
  3. Download the Ob-DevPy-Red Theme from github and extract it to ~/.themes/.
  4. Download and replace your ~/.config/tint2/tint2rc file with mine.
  5. Replace your ~/.Xresources with my file.

[Cinnimon] Simple tiled

  • Distro: Arch
  • Desktop: Cinnamon
  • Extension: Gtile
  • Applet: Icing task manager (fork of window task manager)
  • More info in screenfetch
