GNOME Shell - Elementary Luna Mod by half-left GNOME Shell - Elementary Luna Mod by half-left
This is a GNOME Shell theme based on the Elementary Luna OS. This new version has light menus, notifications and a new switch design based on mockups by :icondanrabbit:

Elementary icons by DanRabbit [link]

Wallpapers by bo0xVn [link]

Dark version


Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes.

GNOME Tweak Tool

Make sure you have user-theme-extension installed. Load the GNOME Tweak Tool and go to Shell Extensions and click the "Use Theme Extension" switch. Now go to "Theme" and click the Shell Theme box and locate your theme zip. Now you can select the theme in the dropdown box.

I hate when people release a theme for software that is on a rolling release schedule. Gnome shell is updated every 6 or so months and developers and designers who make themes and extensions should keep up with it.

-1 For an awesome conversion that doesn't work on my version of Gnome Shell(3.8)

You do know its open source. You can take his code and keep it moving.

I hate when people complain instead of doing something about it.

-1 for being lazy and thinking the world revolves around you and your current version of Gnome.

GNOME don't support us, it one of the reasons why I don't use GNOME any more ,they even break extensions every release.

It's up to extension developers and designers to keep up with upstream packages. The changes are never significant and it's not hard to keep on track with it.

I don't care why you aren't using Gnome I'm saying you've released a theme for Gnome and you haven't stated in the description that there are no plans for further development and this is the final version of this theme.

It's not up to Gnome to support each and every developer and designer, it's up to you who have decided to take time out of your life to create something for the software to keep up with Gnome.

They're just themes, GNOME doesn't even support themes nor do they support anyone who does them. I don't see a flood of people updating the themes for me or taking them on.

@half-left I understand your frustration with Gnome's lack of support. You made an awesome theme and it's sad when people get upset and expect you to carry on developing for them out of your own free time. This is not your job and we are not paying you to offer us this.

On a lighter note, I'm finalizing a theme that's very dark and would like to make my next one light. If it's ok with you, I'd like to clone yours? With credit of course. :)

No problem, it's GPL, do what you like and it's nice to get a credit note. :)

I haven't used Gnome Shell for a long time but I want to try this theme and I can't because when I load up Gnome Tweak Tool is says I don't have user theme extension installed even though I've tried to install it so many times!! How do I do it on Ubuntu 12.04?

Might want to try logging out and back in again.

When I enable it from here


I can't load Gnome Tweak Tool so there's no way to load your theme.
