Some PPAs with beautifull gtk themes

Postby inp3dance » Sun May 01, 2011 3:02 pm

I was searching today after my favorite gtk themes ( Eco and Minty-Fresshnes ) and ended with adding some PPA-s with these and many other themes.
I know that is dangerous to use a PPA repository in Debian, as they are made for Ubuntu, but these packages contain only themes and icons, You only need the appropriate engine and everything will be fine.

So, here are the instructions, if U want to try them out:

Bishigi PPA
Project home: http://www.bisigi-project.org/?page_id=6
PPA page: https://launchpad.net/~bisigi/+archive/ppa

Add

Code: Select all

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
to /etc/apt/sources.list
Import GPG key

Code: Select all

apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 881574DE


Equinox PPA
PPA page: https://launchpad.net/~tiheum/+archive/equinox

Add

Code: Select all

You will need gtk2-engines-murrine > 0.98, which can be donwloaded from http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/gtk2-engines-murrine
For this last tip all recognition goes to Aging Technogeek (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=71711#p416071)
