Along with the recently covered design changes set to arrive in Ubuntu 13.04 came some changes to the look of the Unity launcher.
Now, if you’re one of those folks who just can’t wait to get the latest thing I’ve created a simple little guide for you to follow to install these new-look ‘assets’ in Ubuntu.
How To Install New Unity Design Assests
First you must download the modified assets, which I’ve packaged as into the following zip file.
Extract the contents of the archive and copy (as root) all the items in the “assets” folder to “/usr/share/unity/6″ replacing the existing assets.
To do this via via the Terminal:
- cd <location of download>/raring-design-assets/assets
- sudo cp -r * /usr/share/unity/6
For the changes to take effect, you need only log out then back in.
To undo changes or revert to default just reinstall the “unity-common” package through the Ubuntu Software Center or by running the following command:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity-common
