Canta Theme – A Flat Material Design GTK Theme for Linux

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 materia gtk theme and inspired from Google’s material design which supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like Gnome, Unity, Budgie, Pantheon, XFCE, Mate, etc.

Though Canta GTK theme can be installed on any Linux distros, it mostly best suited on 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 of 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.
