View Full Version : [SOLVED] How to get the look (icons, fonts, backgrounds) of Ubuntu GNOME

July 10th, 2014, 07:52 PM

I like the look of Ubuntu GNOME (http://ubuntugnome.org/). With that I mean the icons and fonts and desktop/lockscreen backgrounds, etc. But I have the "default" kind of Ubuntu installed, the one with Unity GDE.

What repositories I should add and what packages should I install to achieve this? Certainly, I could reinstall the OS using the Ubuntu GNOME ISO, but that certainly would be an overkill I'd like to avoid.

You can install the Gnome Shell as a second desktop and select it at login from the icon on the top right of password/greeter box. The items below are also in the software center.
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions

Thanks, I was missing the tweak tool where I can choose between the themes!
