Linux Mint Themes

Postby lamdacore on Sat Mar 07, 2009 1:24 pm

Hi,

I wanted to know how I could install different themes. I went to Control Center -> Appearance Preferences. Now, I can choose many of the ready made themes but I want to download and install new themes from here. How can I do that? Please help, I love playing with new themes :D

Thanks

You can also check Synaptic for the gnome-themes package. There are some additions in there. The gnome-themes-extras package does not work (as per the Mint 6 release notes), but the community-themes (Ubuntu community) look pretty good, though I usually prefer lighter colors. They are an easy install via Synaptic, and an easy uninstall if you do not like them. There are several icon sets sprinkled around in there, as well. Have fun.
