Orta theme for Ubuntu Unity 11.10 by rebek94 Orta theme for Ubuntu Unity 11.10 by rebek94
You can install this version of the theme Orta on Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity.
This theme is an adaptation of the original ([link]), using also the theme Orion ([link]).

Extract all the files from the archive in the folder ~/.themes/Orta
Then, with gnome-tweak-tool, select Orta in GTK+ theme and Window theme.

You can also install it using the OMG! Ubuntu! PPA!. Open a terminal and type:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kokoto-java/omgubuntu-stuff
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install orta-gtk-theme

You can also install orta-settings-manager ([link]), but only certain information will take effect.

If you have problem with this theme and Xubuntu, you can try this: [link]

I've just installed xubuntu precise and I wanted a nice theme, and orta is my favourite one but i didn't know it doesn't support gtk-3.0 (i usually am a kde user), so i was quite disappointed to see my gtk3 programs look terrible. Then you made my day with this "old" post :D.
But there are some bugs in your theme, some buttons shifting when the mouse hovers them, the background of file roller quite unreadable, and maybe other i haven't noticed yet.
Well I've downloaded this theme [link] and used its gtk-3.0 folder in yours, and it solved all those troubles. I think you could upload this fix in your ppa, don't you?

Ps: sorry if I wrote in a bad english, i haven't been writing in english for ages..

Hi ~loos-e-nd
Thanks for trying this theme and leaving your feedback.
This theme has been designed for Ubuntu, and not for Xubuntu.
Which version of the OS are you using? I made an updated version for Ubuntu 12.04 that you can find here: [link]
Thanks again for your advice, I added the link to this comment in the description :)

Complimenti, meraviglioso tema. Ho un po' di problemi con l'installazione via repository. Dice che il pacchetto orta-gtk-theme inesistente. Sto provando manualmente.

On Xubuntu 12.04 it looks like this [link].
On gedit (GTK-3) it almost like "windows98 style" OMG XD

This is for Ubuntu Unity, not for XDE.
However for Ubuntu 12.04 there is another version (this is for 11.10).
