Want to change the boring default Ubuntu desktop themes? Well, there’s a script allows to easily install a list of the latest version of nice GTK themes.

It supports GTK 3.18 to 3.24, and will install the correct version according to your system. So far, support themes are:

  • Adapta
  • Arc (Firefox themes: Arc, Arc Darker, Arc Dark)
  • Arc-Flatabulous
  • Arc-Red
  • Breeze
  • Candra (GNOME 3.20+ only)
  • Ceti-2 (GNOME 3.18 only)
  • Cloak (GNOME 3.20+ only)
  • DeLorean Dark (GNOME 3.18 only)
  • EvoPop
  • Flat-Plat
  • Flatabulous (GNOME 3.18 only)
  • Flattiance (GNOME 3.18 only)
  • Fresh-Finesse
  • Greybird
  • macOS-Sierra
  • Minwaita
  • Numix
  • OSX-Arc Collection

  • Plano (GNOME 3.20+ only)
  • Pop
  • Redmond-Themes
  • Vertex
  • Vimix
  • Yosembiance (GNOME 3.18 only)
  • Zuki

1. To get the script, open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T or searching for “Terminal” from app launcher. When it opens, run command:

sudo apt install git && git clone https://github.com/tliron/install-gnome-themes

2. The command clone the script source into your user root directory. To run the script, simply run command:

~/install-gnome-themes/install-gnome-themes

To avoid rebuilding themes, it will delete installed themes with same names, then install some required libraries, finally download and build the themes one by one in your system:

When everything’s done, launch Gnome Tweak Tool or Unity Tweak Tool and enjoy the new themes by selecting one of them:
