My preferred theme on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Gnome, No Compiz)

Filed under: Gnome, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 11:40 am

I like the default theme of Ubuntu, but I like another theme better;

Clearlooks,with Clearlooks-gperfection2 controls and Gartoon icons.

To set this up you need :

sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-extras gnome-icon-theme-gartoon

Go to: system – Preferences – Appearance,

Select Clearlooks and click the customize.. Button (at the bottom),
Select Clearlooks-gperfection2 (my preferred look, choose anything you might like)
Select Icons button (on top) and choose Gartoon (or any other iconset you like of course)

And man o man why does theming crash so often in Gutsy! or is it just me ?




  1. Thanks a lot for the guide, I hope it doesnt crash for me either. Peace

  2. It is crashing for me too. Seriously annoying. Do you have emerald loaded for vista/mac features? My issues range from avant just vanishing to the theming just going wonky with no buttons/controls like resize etc. *grr*
