Compact Ubuntu

I’ve always hated the fact that on Ubuntu with the default themes, there’s far too much space wasted. The buttons are too tall, the treeview wastes too much space so that if you’re on eclipse or some other ide, you see a precious few items on the screen.

I’ve been trying to tweak it to no end – even looking to see if there are any ~/.gtkrc-2.0 tweaks. Found a few links such as this Making Eclipse look good on Linux – Max’s blog – however, didn’t really satisfy my need.

And so it stayed until today when I came across Clearlooks Compact Gnome Theme.

I love it – one more for my list of must-haves!
