The new Fedora 27 has been released yesterday and I am currently testing this new distribution on my Live USB. I can run this new Fedora from a USB Flash disk without problems. But here I am not going to discuss about Live USB. I am going to share some nice GTK Themes for Fedora 27. Personally I don’t like the default look of Fedora 27 GNOME. It’s looks like an old fashioned Operating System while it is a modern one. Why don’t we make it more eye catching and looks modern? Well, here are the best Fedora themes that will make your Fedora more eye catching. But don’t get me wrong, these themes are not only working on Fedora. They also can be used on other distributions as well.
Before going through each themes, I recommend you to install Gnome Tweak Tool on your Fedora 27. It is a useful tool to tweak your Fedora especially on changing themes and icons.
Choose The Best Fedora Themes
1. Arc Theme
Arc is a flat theme with transparent elements for GTK 3, GTK 2 and GNOME Shell which supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like GNOME, Unity, Budgie, Pantheon, Xfce, MATE, etc. I have been testing this theme and it supports Fedora 27 perfectly. Please visit the official page of Arc Theme. There are 6 versions of Arc theme: Arc, Arc Dark, Arc Darker, Arc Dark Solid, Arc Solid and Arc Darker Solid.
