Get more Gnome Themes
When I ran Windows I was never a theme person. Windows themes just took too much of a hit on system performance. Under Linux, it seems that the impact is far less. As such I decided to look for more GNOME themes, bored with the selection offered by the standard Ubuntu installation.
The best site I’ve found so far is freshmeat.net! Head on over to their Gnome theme sub-category.
There is even a page on how to install them, although I think it’s slightly out-of-date (2002).
To install them in Ubuntu do this:
- System -> Preferences -> Themes
- Click on Install
- Browse to the .tar.gz file and import
Now I hit a little snag. Some of them said Installed correctly and sometimes I got a message to choose between Revert theme or Switch to new theme.
Now you can have a pretty new desktop. I’ll post back with more Gnome themes sites I find.
