Big big thx for that greate themes. Plz give us more!
i don’t see shortcut button in bellow, like in aqua dreams. What should i do, thanks..
Are there any plans to port these to Lucid 10.04? I miss my favorite themes!
It’s any way to use themes on kubuntu ?
Yes, please port these beautiful themes to 10.04!
Thanks ofr all your hard work! 🙂
I tried the repo for my Lucid version. It worked!!! Thanks a lot.
I’m glad to hear these great themes work in Lucid!!!
Here’s what makes these Ubuntu themes the best on the internet:
*Installation instructions were easy to follow and worked flawlessly! I’m a Linux newb and even I can install theme!
*They are complete themes, not parts of themes you have to put together yourself.
*They work properly! Some themes have bugs, these are flawless!
*They are beautiful! Some themes are quite ugly. These themes were created by someone with real artistic talent!
MORE THEMES PLEASE, YOUR FANS ARE HUNGRY! 🙂
so i downloaded it but where do i find it
Thank you for this. The more I play with Ubuntu, the more I love it. All thanks to amazing people in the Ubuntu community like you.
These are great but I don’t get the icon bar at the bottom such as picture shows in Aqua Dreams or Ubuntu Sunrise. Is there a trick to get it?
The panel you are talking about is called ‘Docky”. You can check it out at https://launchpad.net/docky.
You can use Ubuntu Software Center to easily download it.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Garth, worked like a charm. However in 9.10 you can’t install in Ubuntu Software Center you need to use the Terminal. Here is the link for those who want to know.
Great themes and very easy-to-follow instructions… thanks a lot for the great work!!
