    Posts like this are good because they’re likely to attract newbie users. They like experimenting with themes. However, you’ve gone and given the instructions using the terminal when it’s possible to do this using the GUI. It’s no wonder Ubuntu/Linux is seen as a nerds-only distro when sites like yours give only terminal instructions.

    Please take a few minutes to create some screenshots each time you write an article like this.

    I completely disagree with Ryan. The terminal is by far the quickest way to do this. New users will learn from following tutorials like this. Assuming using the GUI is always easier is like always giving someone mouse instructions when there a quick keyboard shortcuts.

    However, what I fail to understand is why the tutorial fails to clearly state where to obtain the actual themes! It only contains instructions on installing the murrine engine.
