    Restoring default theme

    Hello, a couple of days ago I deleted all the themes - including the default one - in 11.04 in an attempt to clean their list up. Now I have one of the custom themes installed and have no problems with it, although the log in screen has become a very generic classic-style, guess because there's no specific theme the system can skin it in at the startup.

    Is it possible to restore/download the original default theme?

    The Ambiance and Radiance themes are named light themes .
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install light-themes

    Thanks for the reply. I entered that command, and got this:

    "Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    light-themes is already the newest version.

    Although the themes are still not present in the Appearance window, nor in the "~/themes" folder. This probably is due to me playing around with themes that I mentioned in my post : /

    Use 'Synaptic Package Manager' and search for 'themes'.
