Linux: Making My Ubuntu Beautiful

I just don’t like the default ORANGE ! and here are the way to make it look like below.

The two main things I will change here is:

  1. GTK theme (Application theme)
  2. Icon Set

You need Gnome tweak tool

sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool

Main Appearance (GTK and icon)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:daniruiz/flat-remix
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flat-remix-gtk

Official site: https://drasite.com/flat-remix

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:daniruiz/flat-remix
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flat-remix

Official site: https://drasite.com/flat-remix-gtk

After that you go to the Gnome tweak tools and make the adjustment according to the screen shot above. I copied it here again:

  • Application → Flat-Remix-GTK-Blue-Dark
  • Icons → Flat-Remix-Blue-Dark

Bonus: Gnome shell (Optional)

If you want to change the Gnome shell e.g. theme of top and below navigation bar, you need another tools:

sudo apt install gnome-shell-extensions

Then go to the officail site for Gnome shell:
https://drasite.com/flat-remix-gnome

Then another step is to enable Gnome user theme:

Check the user theme.

For me, the default Gnome shell already looks good to me so I don’t change it.

Best !
