I would like to add the Windows Classic Theme to Ubuntu 16.04.1. I have downloaded the theme from this link: http://b00merang.weebly.com/windows-9x.html and extracted the files.

What should I do next in order to add the theme (when using Unity Tweak Tool)?

Thank you.

First, open the terminal with ctrl + alt + t and download the file to your home directory.

wget https://github.com/Elbullazul/Redmond-Themes/releases/download/2016%2F11%2F15/Windows.9x.R4.zip

Alternatively, move the file you already downloaded to your home directory.

Now unzip the file.

unzip Windows.9x.R4.zip

Finally move the theme folder to your themes directory.

sudo mv Windows\ 9x /usr/share/themes/

This should make it visible under the themes section of the settings app

  • Is it Windows` or Windows/`? Sorry phone isn't formatting. Forward slash or back slash as you have it? Jan 23, 2017 at 20:53
  • Windows backslash Jan 24, 2017 at 19:25
