Here are a couple of themes I found, but I have not used them This one looks like win 8 desktop (same as 10), flat windows, blue colour etc... This one is more windows seven than eight, but the description on the page implies that it install a whole pack of windows based themes and icons, so you might find something there. You can also look at Gnome ...

I would say, Numix is a good choice sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install numix-gtk-theme

You can go to /usr/share/themes/YOUR-THEME to tweak the CSS. The main file for this is gtkrc often located in the gtk-2.0 directory. Be sure to read the comments in the document. Here is an example of an edit I made when the background color, bg_color, in the theme Greybird was a little too gray for me (/usr/share/themes/Greybird/gtk-2.0/gtkrc). # ...

Maybe I didn't purge(remove) the right package at the first place. As a result some gnome packages(from gnome-shell) were installed in my system and conflict with unity(theme). So I took the following steps. Remove all gnome packages sudo apt-get purge gnome-* It will also remove some applications and breaks unity. So to fix the side affect I reinstall ...

Purge the gnome-shell. ubuntu-gnome-desktop is only a meta package and removes nothing. After that, you should install Unity again, it could be broken. Sample output % sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntu-gnome-desktop Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following package was automatically ...

The GNOME Headerbars are themed using the GTK+ Theme and Icon Set that you have applied on the desktop environment your using, so to change the theme and icons on GTK+ Headerbars, you'll need to use a Tweak Tool e.g: unity-tweak-tool to be able to change the theme. Once there, select a GTK Theme of your choice and the headerbars' look will change in rhythm ...

since some time, GTK-3 theme CSS files are precompiled into a binary format (*.gresource) and installed as a bundle. There is a helper program called gresource to deal with these files usually, it is installed alongside with the library GLib thus it should be in the package libglib2.0-bin and since this package is usually already installed, you'll find it ...

Try restarting if this doesn't help try updating your computer or try sudo apt-get update this should update the repository that it is feeding from.

Removing ~/.gconf didn't fix it for me. I found that my particular case was probably due to a crash of upowerd. What I did to fix it: sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils Unplug all USB devices (for me it was a headset, Windows Phone, and iPod) Reboot

I have got a partial solution. Using gtk3-nocsd we can disable client side decoration. For Unity we have to use this for an application separately. You cannot set it in environment. (i.e To fix gnome-terminal, edit /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop and modify Exec= line as following) EXEC=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/gtk3-nocsd/gtk3-nocsd.so ...

I have installed Polar Cursor Theme from KDE-look.org, a kind of minimalistic cursor theme with KDE touch. But I am using this cursor theme on Xubuntu for myself. For the loading animation, the cursor changes to a spinning disc with a colored slit (orange, blue or green for choices), like slot screw drive. I recommend this cursor theme for minimalists whom ...

I use Azenis. It's a animated one that's not too animated. You can find more at gnome-look.org and clicking on x11 cursor themes.

What you are looking for is GTK theme settings which is used by GTK applications in KDE and other desktop environments (Unity, LXDE, ..): ~/.gtkrc-2.0 Source: Is there a way to stop KDE from overwriting my other WM settings?

If you wanna install a gtk/unity theme, then put it in ~/.themes; if you wanna install a icon/cursor theme, put it in ~/.icons. Then use unity-tweak-tool to choose the one you like.

Try this command sudo apt-add-repository ppa:numix/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install numix-icon-theme numix-icon-theme-circle You can also change theme using "ubuntu tweek" tool this is better than "unity tweak" sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

If the .themes directory doesn't exist in your user's /home directory, you can just create it, then put any downloaded themes in there. This alone will not install the theme, that's where the unity-tweak-tool comes in. This guide is nice and clear, they only add the Numix ppa as an example, but the rest of the instructions should be applicable.

For some reason I couldn't get the accepted answer to work, so I wrote a small Greasemonkey script to achieve the same effect: https://gist.github.com/einarmagnus/d741e30ad13b051d7971 // ==UserScript== // @name bright forms // @namespace einar // @description Make all form elements default to light style to combat gtk theme // @include * // ...

You need to add -moz-appearance: none; to all your CSS rules. If that alone doesn't make it, you'll have to add a fix to your gtk-2.0 theme. Check the answer for: How to fix firefox's look with a dark theme?

Yes and no. Yes: You can install a different terminal emulator. The "terminal" itself is the thing you get when pressing ctrl+alt+shift+Fx (actually not right either, those are virtual terminals). You can get a fancier terminal emulator with - transparency - diverse options - color themes - shortcuts - tabs - etc. Also you can change the font. Yiu can ...

Clementine and VLC are Qt applications, and Numix is a GTK theme, so you need to tell Qt applications to use GTK themes. This can be done by installing 'qt4-qtconfig'. sudo apt-get install qt4-qtconfig Then find the application in your menu called "Qt 4 Settings" and run it. In "Qt 4 Settings" where it says "GUI Style - Select GUI Style:", choose "GTK+" ...

For the help of other looking to do the same. Here is the commands that finally did it. cd / cd /usr/share/locale/en/LC_MESSAGES sudo nano unity.mo Scroll to the end, and change "Ubuntu ...
