Nord themes for Linux
Updated: 2021-12-19 - added resources: github
Lately I have been doing some customization on my system. I haven't done any major changes in the past year, but I discovered the Nord themes, and since I am on XMonad, I did some updates.
I hope this will help to many people discover new colors and build a little bit more variety on their system.
These are the themes I currently use. If I find others, I will post it here.
For Linux there can be many themes, through r/unixporn. Many people share there favorites there mostly tiling window managers, but there are a couple for KDE or Gnome too. And while it has themes and mods for Windows, you can search for inspirations on r/nordtheme too. You can find themes for GTK, icons, cursors on Gnome-look too.
There is a github list, where you can find all sorts of Nord themes for your favorite system and software.
Main theme (GTK)
I mainly use terminal apps, but my favorite file manager is pcmanfm-qt, and I really like the Nordic GTK theme. As always you can search on gnome-look or github or just in your favorite non-Google search engine.
As for Icons I love Nordzy-dark. It has nice folder icons, and the files icons are also good looking, and distinct. For installation follow the instructions on the page.
Mouse cursors, I found Nordic cursors on gnome-look.org (you can use it with any DE). It's basically a fork of the KDE cursor, very well done though.
I used the "doom-nord" theme, but I switched the "nord-theme", which you can install through the package manager.
Kitty terminal emulator
Kitty is my favorite terminal emulator right now, and I am using nord kitty.
This is probably the easiest to look up, and install, however there is a nice collection on Nord Wallpapers. I prefer some of the natured theme wallpapers, but there are many shapes and logos too. I used to think that wallpapers are a waste of resource, but when I write in Emacs or in terminal, it's nice to have not just a simple color behind. I use transparency with Picom (search in your package manager).
Personally I like to use a simple dmenu script for changing wallpaper. You can only see the name of the wallpapers, so it's good if you rename everything some descriptive ones, like nord-mountain, or nord-city-something.
If you want to nordify any of your images, you can try this tool: ImageGoNord.
