I really like the changes that was made to the default theme in 12.10. However 12.10 keeps on loosing the ability to see my braodcom wifi card and I am experiencing a lot of graphical glitches as well.

12.04 is rock solid and I use this for my production work. Please tell me there is a safe and easy way to import the new theme from 12.10 into 12.04.

Thanks in advance,

Go to /usr/share/themes and copy any theme you want to your home directory under .themes. I'm not sure if a theme from upper version will work properly ;)
