Frieze Gnome Shell Theme

This post was made with an older stylesheet


Frieze looks clean and simplistic, and the extended use of transparent design elements make it fit almost any wallpaper. This theme is worked quite a bit, with all the little details taken care of, use of its own font called “Roboto” (included) plus some very nice customization plugins that work like GS extensions.

You can easily enable or disable them by running the customization script provided inside the “gnome-shell” folder found in the downloaded file.


Available Extensions:

  • Enabling/disabling transition effects
  • Alternative look for menus and dialogs
  • Darker panel backgrounds
  • Smaller icon size in the application overview
  • Remove events area from calendar
  • Remove dash/dock panel background
  • Remove workspaces panel background
  • Remove bottom panel background
  • Roboto font fixes for Ubuntu’s font rendering (currently only available in version 3.2 and 3.4)

    It’s available in AUR, but MD5 is not matching. Please what is MD5 sums of the new version?

    • 7svito

      Ah, forget. It is 3.4 one there.

    Roboto is an open source font developed by Google that was first introduced in Icecream Sandwich.

      I didn’t mean that the artist behind Frieze created Roboto. Maybe I used the wrong words :(

    Great theme and nice font.

    Looks great, the only thing that’s bugging me is the feature “Remove Events Area from Calendar”, that sounds like something that’s supposed to be done on the Extension Level really. Themes shouldn’t mess with the visibility of Elements beyond their background opacity. But i guess it’s not hurting anybody, just my 2 cents.

      I tried it today, it looks nice but it’s a bit slow here…
