Orta: super customizable Gtk theme

I recently told you about Carolina Gtk, a nice theme for Gnome/Xfce based Minty freshness and now it's the turn of the star product of SkiesOfAzel: Orta.

What does it make of Orta such a popular topic? Apart from looking very nice, it has a configuration tool that allows us to choose different ways of viewing its elements in the same theme.

Installation is very simple, we just have to get off this file, unzip it and find an executable with the name: OrtaSettingsManager.py. When executing it, it will launch a Configuration Manager / Manager where the first thing we have to do is click on the button INSTALL.

When we install the theme, we choose it in the Gnome Appearance Manager and we can start to make changes to the tabs, scroll bars, nautilus, choose between a dark or gray panel ... anyway. When we have everything as we want, we click on the button SAVE y Orta does all the work for us.

If they use Ubuntu they can install it easily:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install orta-theme

To install Orta for Emerald:

sudo apt-get install orta-emerald-decorators

To install Orta for Xfwm4:

sudo apt-get install orta-xfwm4-decorators

Then we can configure it through the Menu »Preferences» Orta Settings Manager.

    That's something that all themes should have, so it's more customizable.

    I don't know what will happen if we change the A to an O and an Argentine reads it, hahaha

      But all the themes don't have so many variants of themselves. And about the Argentine, well, you will tell me 😀
