Install Atolm GTK Theme in Ubuntu via PPA
  • Before adding Atolm PPA for installation, make sure you uninstall all traces of Atolm GTK theme you have installed by other methods. 
  • Now, you need to install latest Equinox engine before you start installing Atolm GTK theme. Do the following to install Equinox GTK engine in your Ubuntu(skip this step if you have already installed Equinox GTK theme).
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox
  • Finally, install Atolm GTK theme from PPA in your Ubuntu.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install atolm-theme
  • This same repository applies for Orta theme as well which we had discussed above. So if you have already installed Orta theme using PPA, then all you need to do is - update repositories and install atolm-theme package.
