Introducing Qogiri - Upcoming Default Ubuntu Budgie theme


Yes indeed ~/.local/share/themes
So here is UBudgie 18.04 :

web-app Chromium

Chromium, LOcalc, Thunderbird

Chromium, LOcalc, Thunderbird with Qogir-dark, begin the problems ( thunderbird )

Firefox, Sayonara ( Qt ) with Qogir

Firefox, Sayonara ( Qt ) with Qogir-dark

back button in FF ? Sayonara ?

Firefox, Synaptic with Qogir-light

Synaptic looks like … Sayonara, not themed ?
Oh and what’s that white bar at right of Budgie-Menu ?

Pixelsaver with Qogir-light ( but same problem with any Qogir shade )

This problem with pixelsaver applet is present with almost any theme ( except where it has been fixed : pocillo, adapta …others ? )
Pixelsaver should have the same background as panel, and not the background of windows theme. I think it means actually no background at all.

I did not post again a picture of Nautilus but for left button lovers, the solus logo at left might be counter intuitive ( is it supposed to have any effect when clicked ? )

Anyway, all over, it looks nice ( but quite close to Adapta )
I know these are the Solus colors but any chance to have this theme + its matching folder icons ( which are ? ) with other accent colors instead of blue ( green mint or mate, orange ubuntu, you get the idea… ) ?

Or - for that specific default / distro theme - an option in budgie settings to modify that accent color ( and folder color accordingly ) ?


Hi, the logo you see on the left isn’t Solus’s logo, but instead of a mountain top which this theme was named by. In any case we will have it removed in next version or try to add additional functionality like dropdown menu on the click.

Also from what I saw, you only have issue with back button with dark theme and Firefox?


O yes mountains sorry ! [ edit : I thought these were boat sails :slight_smile: ]

I have Qogiri running on UbuntuBudgie, and will report while using it… i did not check very far nor very deep for themoment about FF.

But Gimp 2.8.22…


Regarding pixelsaver you may have a look at https://github.com/adapta-project/adapta-gtk-theme/commit/649e2dd1b2cdf978d5e7aff00433a4649fc61c2a from Tista ( adapta ) and https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/pocillo-gtk-theme/blob/f5d3f12100544bd4a10ad39708e91baa7ac7d872/src/gtk-3.0/3.22/sass/apps/_budgie.scss from @fossfreedom.

But in the future I don’t know if things like pixelsaver and global-menu applets will still work, unfortunately…

I think I did not wait enough for FF and TB :


Are there plans to make a custom plank theme for this one as well? I don’t like the default gtk one.

Also the top left icon for the file manager, what is that? Can it be changed to the budgie icon?
Would be nice if there was a simple way where we can input the colours ourselves as well as I would like to have a material palenight theme for the background colour :slight_smile:

Other than that looks good and I like it, very modern.


Any way to make the top panel not be transparent?


I’ll install this new theme on Monday and report back. On first impression it reminds me of the Opera interface (not a bad thing). BTW, is this new theme a sign of forking from the original Solus/Budgie project? I thought I read some grumbling from the Solus blog…

Looking forward to UBudgie 18.10 in a little over 7 weeks from now :slight_smile: I’ll probably install from scratch rather than upgrade, which makes experimenting with themes and stuff an easier sell.


I am not aware of such grumblings…

This theme is to give UB a consistent professional look from a dedicated theme maintainer. Nothing more than that :slight_smile:

Assuming all issues are resolved and the feedback from the community is positive then such a theme will debut in 19.04.


Awesome - looking forward to installing this theme on Monday AM - thanks David. Jason


theres an option in the panel settings, I forgot about it. :slight_smile:


Well I’m not the only one to think Adapta with Papirus are consistent :slight_smile:


Any updates on this? will it be released with 18.10?

I have installed the latest version but can’t get square buttons and the image in the background of the file manager.

Suggestion: For the Budgie release change the mountain icon to the Budgie icon?


Ah - @GrindamN should have made it clear - we are looking at 19.04!

I know lots and lots of budgie work has been made by the maintainer in the last few weeks - all feedback has been fed back to the maintainer.

@GrindamN - any ideas about the buttons and background image mentioned by @Gabb1995 ?


For clarification I used these options when I ran the script

sudo ./Install --image --color "dark" --dest "/usr/share/themes" --menu "standard" --square

Hi @Gabb1995. As David said, we are planning to include this theme into 19.04 release. As for the suggestion most of those have been forwarded. For the background of file manager, do you want to have it removed or replaced? Also what seems to be problem with square icons?

Sorry for the late updated, been busy with everyday tasks.


Oh the problem is that I wanted square icons and the background image and didn’t get them when I ran the script. Could be a restart issue will see tomorrow.


This theme looks nice. For the game mines is there any way how to make the other cells more darker.


The author of the theme is very helpful - I would suggest raising an issue on his tracker:


Do we have a recommended way to try it out (for those who may want to try on 18.04/18.10). I assume drop it in the ~/.themes directory.


Disregard - stupid question - didn’t realise there is an installer/docs on the GitHub page.
