Written by Martins D. Okoi

Vimix is a flat Material Design theme to add to your list of themes with which you can beautify your Linux desktop.

It boasts beautifully crafted icons and cool bright colors which give its glossy look and will work smoothly on any desktop environment that supports GTK3 and GTK2 which include Unity, Gnome, Budgie, XFCE, and Mate, among others.

Vimix is based on the ever beautiful Flat-Plat theme and it comes with three theme styles variants (Grey, Doder( blue), and Ruby) which each have a light and dark theme version.

    It is possible to install this on Xubuntu 16.04.2 i386 ?

    • It should be, as long as you are running either GTK+ 3.20 ( or later) or GTK2 engine Murrine (or later) and GTK2 pixbuf engine or the gtk(2)-engines package.

      You can either use synaptic package manager to check your GTK version or enter “dpkg –get-selections | grep gtk” into your terminal
