Dust is one of the most popular Ubuntu themes. So much so that is even now included in Ubuntu by default.

Applications

Whilst all GTK applications can adapt to Dust fine, those not written in GTK or that come with custom themes can look out of place.

Thankfully there are plenty of “Dust” skins around for many of these applications.

Firefox Dust Theme

Firefox has it’s own Official ‘Dust’ theme which you can install by clicking the link below: -

http://launchpad.net/dusttheme-firefox/0.2/0.2.1/+download/dustfox-0.2.1.xpi

To complete the look you can also install a userscript to round the tab bars.

Gwibber Dust

If you’re using the stable version of Gwibber, you can install a ‘Dust’ theme for it to better help it blend with your desktop.

You’ll need to download it from bzr with:~

Opera 10

Although Web Browser Opera is written in QT, it can still perfectly mimic your GTK theme.

To enable this, first make sure you’re using the QT4 version of Opera 10 AND you have QT4 installed!

Then follow my swift tutorial over @ http://d0od.blogspot.com/2009/07/opera-gtk-theme.html
