This theme was designed specially for the Unity environment on Ubuntu as I have only tested it on Ubuntu. It might not work properly for the other versions.
To install the theme, you must first install the Ubuntu tweak tool. It can be installed by simply running the command :
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa 2. sudo apt-get update 3. sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
or heading over to there website, downloading the .deb file (recommended).
Then, you can download the source to the theme here. If you are a developer or a designer, I also encourage you to contribute to it. Create a folder, called .theme in your home directory. This can be simply created by firing up your terminal, and then running
Now this is a hidden directory, to view this in Nautilus, you can pressCtrl/⌘ + H. Alternatively, youc an also place the extracted files in your/usr/share/themes/folder.
For Icons, I use the ultra-flat-icons theme. It is available in blue (recommended), orange and mint green colors. To install this, you can run the following commands
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/icons 2. sudo apt-get update 3. sudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons
Alternatively, you could also runsudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons-orangeORsudo apt-get install ultra-flat-icons-green.
based on you color preference. I recommend these flat icons, but you can also look at Numix and Flattr.
Now press your super key, search for Ubuntu Tweak and fire it. Under the tweaks tab, there is an option for theme. Under that select the Flatabulous theme. Under the icon settings, select ultra-flat-icons. Restart your computer, and you should be good to go! You computer will look something like this after you restart.
There are a few posters, for promotion and publicity. The PSD files can be found here. Feel free to improve them.
