What are the best software packages in Ubuntu that give me themes management (installing, removing , editing ) in a easy way By GUI ?

Four apps come to mind: Ubuntu Tweak, MyUnity, Advanced Settings, and Unsettings. The first three are available in the Ubuntu Software Center. I don't think the fourth is. I think they'll do part of what you want in that you'll be able to switch themes. I don't know about installing and removing. And I don't think editing is possible. That has to be done by editing various files (such as .rc, .ini, .css). There's Gnome Color Chooser for gtk2 apps that gives you a GUI to change various aspects. – user25656 Aug 16 '12 at 6:01
@vasa1 - i dont think Ubuntu tweak is available in Ubuntu Software center , but via PPA :) – atenz Aug 16 '12 at 7:05
@tijybba, did you search for "tweak" and then click on "technical items" at the bottom left? Or maybe it's showing for me because I did install it from a ppa some months while ago and USC is reflecting that? – user25656 Aug 16 '12 at 7:19
It looks like USC does reflect apps that have been installed via ppas. I can see Google Chrome and I installed that via ppa too. And we all know that Chrome isn't part of the USC by default :) – user25656 Aug 16 '12 at 7:52
Thanks Vasa1 I Liked Ubuntu Tweak and Myunity most. – K.K Patel Aug 20 '12 at 4:45
