The prompt is set by using the PS1 variable. This can be defined in several places depending on your setup. If the new prompt is specific to your user, you can run the following command to check which file it is defined in: grep -H PS1 ~/.bashrc ~/.profile ~/.bash_profile ~/bash.login If that returns nothing, broaden the search (some of these files ...

Looks like something or the other modified your .bashrc, since there's no mention of PS1 in it at all.

I would recommend installing the Unity tweak tool from the Software Center. It allows you to change themes as well as icons. As for installing, themes can be installed/removed like any other software using the software center or apt-get from terminal. You can find some good themes at http://www.noobslab.com/p/themes-icons.html

You can change your Ubuntu theme by going into System Settings --> Appearance Your custom themes are present in the ~/.themes directory ( and in /usr/share/themes/ unless you have not installed it as root user ) with their own name. Simply deleting the folder (name of the theme you want to delete) will remove the theme.

Open the gnome-tweak-tool and under 'Appearance' tab, you will see 'Shell Theme'. Probably, that's set to 'Default'. Change it and you're done.

$ file gtk.* gtk.css: ASCII text gtk.gresource: GVariant Database file, version 0 So the answer is: you do not. It is software (see gvariant). so I can edit the gtk.css That one is an ASCII file so editable with gEdit.

The problem was apparently caused by leftover files in the /usr/share/themes directory.

As Unity is based on the GTK stack and Ubuntu uses a slightly modified version of it you can't just install another version. Remove GTK+3.12 and any dependencies that are not from the Ubuntu repositories and install Ubuntu's version of GTK

I think my mistake was to move the themes installed via PPA directly over to the other computer, thinking that it will work since all themes are constrained to the directories /usr/share/icons/ and /usr/share/themes as far as I understood from this experience it is not the case. Anyways I deleted nearly everything in these folders and hope to replace the ...
