Ubuntu – but with a sensible flat look

The default Ubuntu theme is, well…. Urgh…..

Here are a few very simple ways to make it look better:

Flatabulous Theme

This theme can be found on GitHub at: https://github.com/anmoljagetia/Flatabulous

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flatabulous-theme

Don’t forget to:

sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

so you can set the theme!

Ultra-Flat Icons

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/icons
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons

Alternatively…

sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons-orange

OR

sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons-green.

Finally

Don’t forget to set the task bar to “bottom – auto hide” in unity-tweak-tool
