A re-skin of the GTK+ Theme for Pop_OS in the beautiful color scheme Nord.


Suggestions are always appreciated because I'm figuring this whole thing out as I go, and I'm sure I missed a lot.

The current release of Pop-nord seems to look pretty good for what I have used it for thus far, but again, please tell me any issues or ideas, and if you're really interested in this project becoming better, submit a pull request!


It's the question on everybody's mind, isn't it? Why use this theme when I could get a better Nord theme? Well my first response to that is, ouch, and my second response is consistency. I really like the default Pop-dark theme, but I also like how clean Nord is, and I always find that there are inconsistencies when using custom themes in Pop.

With Pop-Nord, Pop Shop isn't visually broken like it is by other themes, and you still get the same feel that the default theme has.

So, why? For the look of Nord and the feel of Pop.


Installation from Git Source

This is assuming you already have Gtk3 and Gtk2 installed

Install dependencies

sudo apt install gtk2-engines-pixbuf gtk2-engines-murrine

Install build dependencies

sudo apt install sassc meson libglib2.0-dev

Optional: Dependencies for modifying assets

sudo apt install inkscape optipng
  1. If previous versions were installed/existed, remove them first.
sudo rm -rf /usr/share/themes/Pop-nord*
rm -rf ~/.local/share/themes/Pop-nord*
rm -rf ~/.themes/Pop-nord*
  1. Generate the theme files.
meson build && cd build
  1. Install the theme.
ninja install
  1. For whatever reason, the install script doesn't link the Pop-nord-dark Gnome shell theme inside the themes folder which results in there not being a dark shell theme. To fix this we need to do it manually.
sudo ln -s /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/Pop-nord-dark/ /usr/share/themes/Pop-nord-dark/gnome-shell


Window Titles: Fira Sans SemiBold 10

Rebuilding after modifications:

You shouldn't need to rebuild the entire theme after modifications. If you make changes to any GTK3 or GTK2 assets, delete the old rendered copies and use the script to regenerate those with new ones with your modifications.
