Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Equinox is an amazing new GTK engine which is already used by the Elementary GTK theme and many others.

Until now, Equinox was only available to download via Gnome Look but starting today, both the Equinox GTK engine and the themes developed by the GTK engine creator (Equinox themes and Equinox Ubuntu themes) got their own PPA so you can stay up to date with the latest version.
