Cobra is a dark, nearly black GTK theme for GNOME users. Contains borderless themes for Beryl (Emerald) and Metacity.

To resize windows using borderless themes (in Gnome at least), press Alt + Middle mouse button and drag the window. If there is any interest I could add Metacity and Emerald themes with borders later. If anyone needs more color variations, just ask.


Download the package, extract it, open the folder and read the instructions file.


The Emerald themes has two versions, one with OSX-like buttons and another which resembles Vista buttons. The same applies to Metacity themes.

Firefox, Gaim and Open Office have some issues with dark themes. Fixes are provided in the instructions file.

Ubuntu users: Install the package 'gtk2-engines-pixbuf' to use the theme:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf.

About GNOME:

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.

GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.

The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
