Ubuntu – How to customize window borders and controls


I want to use themes from Gnome Art, but I can't find where to configure Control/Window Border/Icons in Ubuntu 12.04.

Best Answer

  1. Install gnome-tweak-tool

    sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

    1. Download the theme from Gnome-art(make sure that it is gtk3 theme)

    2. Extract the theme and copy it to the .themes(.icons for icon themes) folder in your home folder (It is hidden by default press ctrl+h to see it

    3. open advanced settings from unity dash

    4. Move to 'Theme' option on the left sidebar. You can now change the Window theme,icon theme and gtk theme from there by changing the options in the dropdown list
