Thanks Johnny, I installed Emerald Theme Manager, but i can not apply new theme for my Ubuntu. Does Unity (Ubuntu 14.04) support Emerald Theme Manager? – LVHoanh Jun 12 '14 at 3:55

Yes it is. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:noobslab/themes

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install emerald

WARNING! As the article suggested, Window decoration plugin is not available under unity in 14.04. It will create conflict with Unity. – Anwar Shah Apr 25 '15 at 4:33
