Dramatic desktop theming script ‘Elegant gnome’ gets even better

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

It’s been a good month or two since we last spoke about the all-in-one script ‘Elegant Gnome’ which takes your drab default desktop and paints it with pretty – with no hassle involved!

The pack now comes with a GUI installer, a PPA for updating and all of the the same goodies it previously shipped with: –

  • AwOken icon theme
  • Elegant GTK theme v 2.0
  • gDIGE‘ Wallpaper
  • Keyboard layout indicator flags
  • Firefox theme
  • Smplayer theme

Sad to see no Chrome theme included yet – but you can’t have everything!


‘Elegant Gnome’ requires the following packages pre-installed in-order to work. (Click each item to see instructions or PPA): –

Now add the PPA: –

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elegant-gnome/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elegant-gnome

Substituting ‘elegant-gnome-mint’ on the last line if you use Linux Mint.
