How do I install the "moka" icon pack on Ubuntu 14.04 and a theme pack ?

3 Answers 3


You can do this by adding Noobslab PPA to your sources, in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
sudo apt-get update

To preview themes and icon packs for Ubuntu 14.04 go here

  • I get "add-get command not found" - I'm using Ubuntu Gnome 14.04

  • @user284848 Ubuntu 13.10 is outside of support. I recommend that you upgrade to 14.04 LTS

Moka theme and icon theme packs are available separately, and you can follow the instructions at mokaproject.com.

Numix is another option for Ubuntu 14.04, available at numixproject.com


This is how to install theme packs, not icon packs because I haven't learned that:

  1. Download some theme from www.gnome-looks.org
  2. Open the terminal. -- Ctrl+Alt+T and run:

    gksu nautilus  
  3. Type the password.

  4. Open another window of Nautilus
  5. Extract the file, example: windows8.tar.gz and copy it to /usr/share/themes/ in the root window that you opened from the terminal.
  6. Open GNOME Tweak Tool and setup GTK+ and Window with the theme pack you have downloaded. If you don't have GNOME Tweak Tool installed, search for it in the Ubuntu Software Center.
