I found a perfect theme that satisfies what I need - https://github.com/andreisergiu98/arc-flatabulous-theme There's also another one with not much differences on gnome-look called OSX-Arc, but the development of Arc-Flatabulous is more active than OSX-Arc

Try editing /etc/gdm3/greeter.dconf-defaults You can restart GDM by running sudo systemctl restart gdm3 Note that running that command will immediately end all of your graphical logged in sessions so save your work first. Source: /usr/share/doc/gdm3/README.Debian

By moving themes or after download extracting and placing in the /usr/share/themes directory is one simple way to install themes on your system, while doing this you need to root permission as you are trying to install theme package on system. To uninstall any theme you just have to remove the folder of that theme: sudo rm -r "name of theme folder"

Yes, it is. All the themes that are to be used by all users in a system are placed in the /usr/share/themes folder as subfolders. So, the only thing you have to do is copy the theme folder in there as root. The folder name will be the theme name you see in Appearance. In case you don't see it in Appearance, make sure the correct permissions are given in ...

Adapta Dark This theme introduces a number of modifications to window decorations and icons, but the end result is quite crisp. All the colours seem to have been well worked out, producing a nice desktop in different monitors. Installation: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tista/adapta -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install adapta-gtk-theme It might ...

There is an icon set for Libreoffice that looks like the icons of MS Office 2013: http://charliecnr.deviantart.com/art/Office-2013-theme-for-LibreOffice-512127527

No, there is not currently a way to do it more cleanly than that - unless you write some solution up yourself. Now, if you wanted to do that, likely what you'd want to do is have some scripts like: #!/bin/bash # sets a dark theme gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Some-Dark-Theme" gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "...

These changes are read from the disk during shutdown, which is why that works. On bootup, however, they are read from the initial in-memory file system image - initramfs, which you haven't updated with your changes. This is necessary because your regular file system isn't yet available. Here's what I did to solve that in Ubuntu 14.04, so I can't guarantee ...

After a bit of reading on the subject and then re-reading the readme.md at the numix project I realised they actually do explain how to manually install and make changes to their theme. The thing is that the instructions assume alot of prerequisite knowledge - basically that you are a C developer who knows CSS. I'm assuming you know that source code for ...

Only way you can change window themes is by copying your theme to either Ambiance or Adwaita folder. Gnome developers have become very ignorant to user's and themes, due to their inability to fix underlying problems with their desktop. GTK+ will refuse to use the entire theme if it does not completely comply with what Gnome Developers want on our desktops. ...

1) Go to Arc theme main page 2) Choose "Clone or download", then "download .zip" 3) remove old version of theme (if it's necessary) sudo rm -rf /usr/share/themes/{Arc,Arc-Darker,Arc-Dark} rm -rf ~/.local/share/themes/{Arc,Arc-Darker,Arc-Dark} rm -rf ~/.themes/{Arc,Arc-Darker,Arc-Dark} 4) Make sure, that you have packages listed below: autoconf, ...

Oh, how stupid I was... It's easier than I think. I just go to setting -> appearance. And choose theme Ambiance (default) then everything's back.

Change back to Breeze and then back again to Breeze Dark. If that doesn't fix it, go through every category and change them all to breeze dark (including color and icons)

A workaround would be to create a small code inside theme folder exactly at: sudo vim /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/apps/nemo.css note: change vim with your favourite text editor .nautilus-desktop.nautilus-canvas-item:selected { color: @theme_selected_fg_color; background-image: none; background:#778196; } Now we should give gtk-main a path to ...

It sounds like KDE installed successfully, but the login manager is still defaulting to Unity. To load KDE, you'll need to manually select it in the login screen. First, log out. Then on the Ubuntu login screen, try clicking on the Ubuntu logo near your username. There should now be a list of installed desktop environments to choose from. Choose "KDE", log ...

I had to install Kubuntu to do so. I am sure that a special customization of the colors in the Ubuntu may lead to something similar (see this for some ideas), but did not try.

All DE's are capable of changing icon sets that you can download in their respective "Appearance", or "Look and Feel" menus. You can also manually change each one in file property windows by clicking the icon on the properties page, and choose any icon you want. To specifically change only Skype's system tray icon, see the answer here : Change skype tray ...

I don't have KDE installed right now to test. As I remember with Kubuntu 15.04, KDE was creating two files to override GTK theme settings. GTK2: ~/.gtkrc-2.0 GTK3: ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini As they are two separate file you can change them differently. But you may need to change them to read-only so KDE config tool will not able to change them. ...
