hi all. just wondering if there was any way of changing the colour / look of the folder icons as well as the colour of the title bars, etc. i did not want to go messing around with things until i found out for sure. thanks

There are 3rd party themes and icons available for Ubuntu and other Linux distros and current installation instructions can be found with a search.

This is Linux, everything can be changed. There are GTK themes, icon themes, boot splash themes, etc. You can even create your own themes.

and just to make sure with the terminal commands i copy and paste one at a time and hit enter after each one, is that correct. ah the fun of being a newbie. and one more question my os is lubuntu so that is the same as ubuntu, is that correct. ie anything for ubuntu will also operate on lubuntu

Lubuntu themes might be different and I would wait for opinions from Lubuntu users and I will add a Lubuntu tag to the thread title.
