Theming is one of the best ways of enjoying Linux, right? There are tons of themes available online for customizing your system and giving it a better look and feel. Among all the themes online, there are some of the most popular themes including the Arc Theme. This theme has earned immense popularity in the community. Previously, we discussed how to enjoy Arc theme on Thunderbird.

Now, it’s time to enjoy the theme system wide.

Installing the theme

Run the following command(s) according to your Linux distro.

  • Ubuntu
sudo apt install arc-theme

  • Debian
sudo apt-get install arc-theme
  • Fedora
sudo dnf install arc-theme
  • Arch Linux
sudo pacman -S arc-gtk-theme
  • Other distros

If your distro wasn’t listed here, you have to follow the instructions on this page. You have to build it from source. Run these commands in the terminal:

git clone https://github.com/horst3180/arc-theme --depth 1
cd arc-theme

./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

There are also other customizable options available during the build of the theme.

./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --custom-argument

Available options:

--disable-xfwm
--disable-metacity
--disable-gtk2
--disable-gtk3
--disable-unity
--disable-transparency

Activating the theme

Even if the theme is installed successfully, it’s still not activated. You have to activate it from your distro’s theme settings. There are lots of available desktop environments, but the most popular ones are GNOME, XFCE4, and KDE.

The easiest way to find out the proper option is to search from the “Apps” menu. After activating, enjoy the awesome Arc theme.
