Ubuntu – Material Design
I really love Ubuntu, mainly for the way it is organized and for how easy everything is (atleast from a geeks perspective) and how customizable it is. Another thing that I am really loving is – as you probably already know – Android
apart from its customization and unix style the main thing in it to love is Material Design. I just love the simplicity and overall pleasing look of Material Design.
So today I thought to myself: “What if there was a Material Design theme for Ubuntu?”. So I went out to search the internet and found something really sexy! It is a free Unity theme named Paper by Sam Hewitt!
Not a second later I’ve already been in the progress of installing the theme on my Ubuntu 16.4 system, I will provide you with a small guide how I did it. I first installed Unity Tweak Tool, a toolbox to customize the system look. Use the following snippet to install it:
$ sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool
after this is done you can install the theme itself:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snwh/pulp
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install paper-icon-theme paper-gtk-theme
You can now start the Unity Tweak Tool
and select the Paper theme in the Themes tab!
Enjoy your new Ubuntu look and feel
Info: If you really want a complete Material look you can now set the system font to Roboto as I did.
