Five neat new Covergloobus themes


I’ll start with a dozy: ‘Banner’ is the creation of sir-nimaj over on DeviantArt. Whilst it’s minimal in features it is also beautifully designed.

eDark Covergloobus

This theme has it all: star ratings, player controls, track information, track art and stylish good looks. You almost want to envy it. Linux-purists may deride the similarity to iTunes former mini-player look but that'll be a non-issue for most.


I have love for BTX because it dares to a) have a unique shape and b) not display any cover art at all. It does have scrolling text (where text is too long) and can be resized without too much pixel-ation in the latest CoverGloobus.

Smaller screen with titles

Looking for something small and discrete? Smaller screen is a minuscule CoverGloobus theme compared to others and has just gained 'track info' support.


Self promotion alert: I added scrollbar support and some new buttons to my Faenza-inspired CoverGloobus theme - y'know the one with the name you don't even bother trying to pronounce.

How to install CoverGloobus Themes

Once you've downloaded a theme you like the next step is to install it.
  • First you'll need to extract the theme from the .zip, .7z, .rar or .tar.gz archive you downloaded. This is a 'Right click > Extract' affair.
  • Check for any fonts within the theme folder than need to be installed.
  • Next open up your Home folder and press 'CTRL+H'.
  • Search for .CoverGloobus (Note the preceding period)
  • Enter this folder and move your extracted theme to the 'theme' folder within.
  • Right click on CoverGloobus and choose 'Configure > Theme > your installed theme'
