Between Arc, Adapta and Numix it kind of feels like Linux has the whole flat GTK theme thing covered.
But proving their’s always room for one more is Ant.
Ant is a flat GTK theme for Ubuntu and other GNOME-based Linux desktops. It’s available in three striking variants, all of which have their own signature flourish:
- Ant – light, with red highlight
- Ant Dracula – dark, with pink highlight, green accent
- Ant Bloody – mix of dark and light, with red highlight, green accent
The color palette of the Ant Bloody is perfect for Hallowe’en as it pairs an antique off-white background with blood red text and gunky green accents
The macOS-inspired window controls in each of the variants are, for my tastes at least, a little out of place. Ant would benefit from original window control assets that match its otherwise individual personality.
