TIP: There are only 16 days left until Xubuntu 12.04 LTS is finally out - and with it, among many other things, Xubuntu's excellent (and old default) Bluebird theme will be updated and finally get support for your GTK3 applications. It may not be 100% finished yet, but it's pretty usable even now (see screenshot below). For those who want to try it for themselves using Xubuntu 11.10 or older - follow these steps:

- use your terminal to type:

sudo apt-get install git-core
git clone https://github.com/shimmerproject/Bluebird ~/.themes/Bluebird

- Now you can select Bluebird under "Appearance" and "Window Manager" items in your "Settings Manager".

That's one step closer. I really want to achieve an 8-bit nintendo look. A courier font might get me closer too.
 
Excellent theme, I also made a similar theme, Solus Blues gtk3 (include Zuki Blues gtk2 theme) on gnome-look.org/
 
Not very different from 'greybird', but still it is a nice theme.
 
+Tomasz Wiącek Well yeah, Greybird was originally based on Bluebird (it got too blue for me after using it in everyday-situations for one release :) )
I intend to improve the Gtk3 version, note that it's not really perfect yet, at least the progressbars and the scales need some work. After that I guess I'll add basic Unity-support to both Greybird and Bluebird.
(Guess that'll land via precise-proposed at some point.)
 
Just to mention: the bug that is visible in Screenshot8 (Thunderbird-messaging menu missing icons) has been fixed meanwhile.
 
I'm using it on Xubuntu 11.10 and it looks far more better than gray :) I changed too icons for humanity :)
