Are you bored with your regular Ubuntu Desktop environment? If so, then I have an amazing new GTK theme for you called Canta Theme. This GTK theme is based on a materia gtk theme and inspired by Google’s material design, which supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like Gnome, Unity, Budgie, Pantheon, XFCE, Mate, etc.
Though the Canta GTK theme can be installed on any Linux distros, it is best suited to the Gnome Shell environment. Its light, bright and airy look easily integrates with the Gnome shell desktop. Moreover, it also uses MacOS style traffic lights window controls.
There is a small drawback to this sort of material design theme. All the themes look the same as it follows strictly Google’s Material design. But yet Canta Theme shows us a unique and fresh look and feel.

There are few variations of this theme: dark header bar, dark compact, light header bar, mixed and light compact. It requires GTK+ 3.20 or later and GTK2 engines.
