    nice themes there..!! but, at the end of the day, it is the dust theme that stays on your system!!

    p.s. i suspect an error in the GPG key. it should be “0X1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de” and not “0×1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de”. whatdyasay?

    Here is the correct command (all on one line):

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0x1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de

    Great themes!

  9. Installing the GPG keys did not work as described. Dropping “0x” did the trick for me:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de

    The correct key:

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0x1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de

    Picked it up from the theme’s website

  11. Eubolist says:

    Just use this command:

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0x1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de

    I don’t know whether it’s a bot protection or something else, but you’re all using a “×” = [ASCII: 158] instead of a real “x” = /??ks/ = [ASCII: 120]
    You can try it out yourself by holding the ALT-key and typing in the according ASCII-Number.

    Great themes by the way! Big THANKYOU to Ubuntugeek and the guys from zgegblog!

    It’s working with the ASCII kode… and type 120, but it’s saying it takes like 9 days to download, can that be right ???

  15. Eubolist says:

    To do everything at once (add source – get key – update – install), just copy/paste the following code, that should work for everyone:

    echo “deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list && echo “deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de && sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install zgegblog-theme

    Copying the Key import line from above does not work. However, going to the launchpad ppa and using the provided key works properly. Here is the proper command for importing the key:

    sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0x1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de

  25. irrdev says:

    In follup to my previous post above, I realize the problem with copying the key import line – the “x” in the key doesn’t appear to copy properly into the Gnome terminal. Manually replace it with a lower-case “x” and everything should work fine.;)

    Installation ran smoothly. But I have a silly question. I activated window decorations in Gnome settings, however, I would like to use Emerald ones instead.

    I went to Emerald settings and don’t know how to activate the theme there. It looks nicer imo.

    thx for help

    Installation ran smoothly after setting up a GPG-key :)

    A have a problem with the Showtime theme. When I ran this on my old computer it included a cool font that displayed the titles of folders och pages on top of window. However, this font isn’t visible now and it’s just Verdana or something. Any idea?

    Best and thanks for a great tutorial :)
