Who made the theme? When was the theme made? Was it made originally for a specific distro? Does the theme have anything to do with the city of Raleigh?

  • What theme? Default where? What's raleigh? – terdon Sep 27 '15 at 11:09
  • It's the default gtk2 theme when there is no theme. – user135944 Sep 27 '15 at 11:12

Per the changelog in gtk-engines-0.12/raleigh:

Sat Feb 10 08:34:10 2001  Owen Taylor
    * started ChangeLog.

I don't think it was made for a specific distro, namely Red Hat (as Owen worked/works @ Red Hat).
It's a gtk theme as the README from the same package says:

This is a theme engine that implements a cleaned up version of the GTK+ default look - it is basically a cross between the GTK+ default look and something more like Microsoft Windows, with a Macintosh style option menu.

so basically available in any gtk-based DE.
As to your last question, I guess you'll have to ask Owen... but as terdon points out, Red Hat is based in Raleigh so that would explain the name.
