Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Starting with version 0.47, DockBarX supports separate themes for DockBarX, DockX and window list and some cool new themes have already started to show up on websites like DeviantArt.

One theme I really like is called "Brit" (inspired by "Elegant Brit" GTK theme) and comes with everything you need: DockBarX and window list themes as well as two dock (for DockX) themes.

The theme has been created by BigRZA, who has previously created some beautiful DockBarX themes like TonkyBar or the DBX big dock pack.

To install Brit for DockBarX, extract the downloaded archive to your home folder. If this is the first time you're installing a new DockBarX theme manually, there's nothing else you need to do because extracting the archive automatically creates the folder structure (~/.dockbarx/themes).

If not, press CTRL + H to be able to see hidden folders and copy the contents of the themes folder inside .dockbarx to ~/.dockbarx/theme .

Then, launch the DockBarX Preferences window and apply the new theme on both the Appearence tab (for "Theme" and "Window list style") and Dock tab if you use DockX.

Oh, and if you want to use the GTK theme for which this DockBarX theme was created, get it from here: Elegant Brit for GNOME 2 | Elegant Brit for GNOME 3 (includes GTK and GNOME Shell themes).
