    HOw to find new themes for MATE 1.6.0

    Ubunteros,

    In Mate under System-->Preferences-->Appearance it's possible to change theme appearance.

    How and where can I find the "Dust" one that was available in 10.04?

    Thanks!

    Try the following command. The package includes Dust-Dust Sand & New Wave. These are gnome 2 themes and I am not positive they work with mate.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-ubuntu

    There is a mate-themes package, although I have no idea what is in it:

    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ apt-cache policy mate-themes
    mate-themes:
    Installed: (none)
    Candidate: 1.4.0-1+precise
    Version table:
    1.4.0-1+precise 0

    As it said above, install mate-themes.

    You can use almost any GNOME 2.x themes also, look for gnome-look.org for more eyecandy.
