Top 6 Gnome Shell Themes Ever!

If you are a regular reader of our blog, you probably need no introduction to GNOME Shell and its capabilities. We had a complete review of GNOME Shell before, and we were quite happy with the way it was evolving. GNOME Shell, even though it is still in its early stages of development, was an absolute delight to use.

We had featured 4 GNOME Shell themes before, 2 more themes are on its way and its all getting a bit cluttered. So I decided to bring all the themes under one roof err.. post. So here are 6 of the most beautiful GNOME Shell themes I have ever seen.

How to Install GNOME Shell Themes?
  •  First of all, you need to backup your original GNOME Shell Theme. Copy-paste /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme directory to your Home folder
  • If you are doing it via Nautilus, you have to open Nautilus as root. Hit ALT + F2 and type "gksu nautilus"(without quotes) to open Nautilus as root.

  • Now download the themes from above, extract it and copy-paste the extracted "theme" directory to /usr/share/gnome-shell
  • Thats it. Now to enable the new theme, you need to restart GNOME Shell. Hit ALT + F2 and type "restart".
  • Done. You have your new GNOME Shell theme installed and running great(hopefully). 
All of those themes are awesome works done by half-left. Big thanks mate! Between, I haven't tried the two new themes in Ubuntu yet, primarily because I am on Ubuntu 10.10 beta, and I don't want to mess around much while its still in beta.
