I'm pretty new to Ubuntu, so this might not make sense (?) but I see a lot of GNOME Shell themes online, and they make people's computers look awesome, but I like the look of the Unity environment more, so I don't want to switch to the GNOME desktop... is there a way to either install GNOME shell themes without removing Unity, or is there such thing as a Unity theme? (I haven't been able to find one or an answer to this...)
If you go to
you can select one of the default themes.
Of course, you can search for unity themes online. I have never done it until now. There are some examples on this site:
It seems that you should install unity-tweak-tool first:
sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool
and then look for themes online, and add the repository, install the theme, and then switch to it using unity-tweak-tool.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install numix-gtk-theme numix-icon-theme
