I know How to install the Pantheon desktop environment?, but I'd rather not install the whole desktop environment but only the theme and iconset.

I can install Cairo dock That looks alike Plank (the docker used in Elementary OS):

sudo apt-get install cairo-dock

(some more docks here)

Is there an easy way to get the theme and icons from Elementary OS on Ubuntu Unity desktop on Ubuntu 14.10?

  • You should be able to search elementary like icons in gnome-look.org, ubuntu mono icons are based itself on elementary icons. – xangua Jun 10 '15 at 12:29

  1. Add Elementary ppa:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable
    
  2. Update your system:

    sudo apt-get update
    
  3. Install the icon theme:

    sudo apt-get install elementary-icon-theme
    
  • If you have Ubuntu 14.10, you get http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu/dists/utopic/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found so this helps: sed -i s/utopic/trusty/g elementary-os-ubuntu-stable-utopic.list – rubo77 Jun 11 '15 at 7:20
  • No I get The following packages have unmet dependencies: elementary-icon-theme : Depends: gnome-icon-theme-full but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems – rubo77 Jun 11 '15 at 7:24
  • So since there is no repository for 14.10 or 15.04 I guess this is only a solution for 14.04 – rubo77 Jun 11 '15 at 7:30
  • Try ppa:elementary-os/daily – Muzaffar Jun 11 '15 at 23:01
  • On 14.10 with daily I get the error elementary-icon-theme : Depends: gnome-icon-theme-full but it is not going to be installed and if I try apt-get install elementary-icon-theme gnome-icon-theme-full then I get: gnome-icon-theme-full : Depends: gnome-icon-theme (= 3.10.0-0ubuntu2) but 3.12.0-1ubuntu1 is to be installed – rubo77 Jun 12 '15 at 22:14
