Please note that while you can use some themes only under GPLv3 and that my code is also available only under GPLv3, some themes, of which the files have a header explicitly stating this, are also available under the BSD-like 2-clause Tcl license.


The themes plastik, clearlooks and elegance are recommended to make your UI look nicer on all platforms when using Tkinter and the ttk extensions in Python. When you are targeting Ubuntu, consider using the great radiance theme.
