How to install the Ubuntu Studio theme

This is fun. Ubuntu Studio has just been released and some handy thinkerers have found out how to install just the theme on your default Ubuntu 7.04 box. The good thing is that it isn’t that hard to do.

First, edit the /etc/apt/sources.list (for instance by using $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list) and add the line

deb http://archive.ubuntustudio.org/ubuntustudio feisty main

Then add the gpg (security key) for the repository with

$ wget http://archive.ubuntustudio.org/ubuntustudio.gpg
$ sudo apt-key add ubuntustudio.gpg
Now you run

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-look

When all is done you have to set the wallpaper manually (right mouse click on the desktop -> set wallpaper), select the Ubuntu Studio Theme in System -> Preferences Themes and set the GDM correctly as well (System -> Management).

It’s a nice dark theme, reminiscent of Windows Vista. Together with Beryl this is a nice combo.

Thanks and kudo’s to the Ubuntu Studio team.
