Ubuntu – How to get and install more themes, icons, and pointers

appearanceiconspointersthemes

I've downloaded some nice themes, icon packages, and pointers from sites like gnome-look. Now what do I do? Where else can I get these kinds of things?

Best Answer

Installing new themes in Ubuntu 10.10 and below

To install the themes open the Theme Manager which can be accessed from System > Preferences > Appearances then just drag the theme/icons etc on to the window.

Once installed you can either directly use the theme or modify it to use individual components like icons, borders, etc in the Theme Manager.
