View Full Version : [SOLVED] Gnome themes in Unity?

February 14th, 2011, 01:37 AM
I recently added the ubuntu netbook edition to my desktop via ubuntu software center.

I have found that when using any theme I installed for Gnome, it only changes a few aspects of the desktop, like the window border is always the ambiance window border.

I was wondering if there was a way to get my Equinox Gnome theme to work in the netbook edition.

I have been wondering the same thing . I want to learn the Unity desktop but I can't stand to look at Ambiance or Radiance themes . I imagine It will take some time after Unity is complete before artists can create usable themes.

If I find Unity restrictive as far as theming goes , I will use Classic Gnome . http://askubuntu.com/questions/9854/will-unity-become-themeable

Quite. But I'm quite happy with Classic now, and Unity hasn't introduced any features I don't have over here, so I'm going to continue thinking of it as the DE for newbies.

Thanks for the replies...that sucks that it isn't themeable :/
I like the interface but it's just not as customizable as the gnome desktop
