This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

what version of ubuntu? if 11.10 - does this answer your question?… – fossfreedom Oct 16 '11 at 22:26

Try installing the gnome-tweak-tool

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

It will give you some control over the fonts and themes on your system, though not as intuitive for installing new themes - you have to do that manually.

Also, if you try to change the desktop background you'll be given the opportunity to select a window theme from there.
