Apart from those themes in the repository and Gnome-look.org, are there other places to get themes for my Ubuntu Desktop?
Also, are there any 3rd party repositories of themes and other eye-candy?

It works great, I didn't have any problems with the themes and they are complete, meaning that you have their icons not only on your desktop but also in nautilus file browser.
I apologize in case an answer from above has already mentioned it.
