Yaru MATE GTK theme

Yaru MATE is the default GTK theme for Ubuntu MATE 21.04 and newer. This snap can be installed to appropriately theme snapped applications. There is a Yaru MATE icon theme snap to compliment this snap:


 snap install gtk-theme-yaru-mate
 snap install icon-theme-yaru-mate

To connect the theme to a snapped application, you can run:

 sudo snap connect [other snap]:gtk-3-themes gtk-theme-yaru-mate:gtk-3-themes
 sudo snap connect [other snap]:gtk-2-themes gtk-theme-yaru-mate:gtk-2-themes
 sudo snap connect [other snap]:icon-themes icon-theme-yaru-mate:icon-themes

Or, you can connect the Yaru MATE snapped theme to all snapped apps that support theme plugs:

 for PLUG in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:gtk-3-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect ${PLUG} gtk-theme-yaru-mate:gtk-3-themes; done
 for PLUG in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:gtk-2-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect ${PLUG} gtk-theme-yaru-mate:gtk-3-themes; done
 for PLUG in $(snap connections | grep gtk-common-themes:icon-themes | awk '{print $2}'); do sudo snap connect ${PLUG} icon-theme-yaru-mate:icon-themes; done

An official snap built with ❤︎ by the Ubuntu MATE team using configuration at https://github.com/ubuntu-mate/gtk-theme-yaru-mate-snap and the Yaru MATE theme from the upstream project https://github.com/ubuntu/yaru
