List of ttk Themes

Most of the themes can be downloaded here: A collection of Ttk themes

Also see each entry below for download links.

The themes can also be retrieved from here: [L1 ] But I make no guarantees as to fidelity to the original source.

Scalable indicates whether the theme will scale with high resolution displays. The tksvg package will be required for scalable themes. Some of the non-graphical built-in themes may be made to scale with some work.

Graphical? indicates that the theme uses pixmaps, GIFs or PNG files. Graphical themes may not scale properly on high resolution displays. Native themes are supported by the operating system's built-in libraries, and are only available on the relevant platform.

This is an interesting collection, and it's a pity many themes have no download link.
I'm particulary interested in some cross-platform Aqua-looking themes.
I'd like to see them grouped in categories, "most popular", "obsolete", ... don't you think could be useful to add/embed a survey poll in these wiki pages ?

The link for downloading "most" of the themes is listed at the top of the page, first paragraph.
