A piece of my mind

Installing Ubuntu Studio Theme

Ubuntu Studio is a multimedia editing/creation flavour of Ubuntu. It’s built for the GNU/Linux audio, video, and graphic enthusiast or professional. Because I don’t do audio, video and graphic editing or creation, so I didn’t install Ubuntu Studio. But from the screenshot, I really like the theme that is used by Ubuntu Studio. So I decide to install the theme into my Feisty Fawn.

1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and put this line:

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

2. Get the gpg for that repo

$ wget http://archive.ubuntustudio.org/ubuntustudio.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add –

3. Run

$ sudo apt-get update

4. If you want to install all the themes that is used in Ubuntu Studio, including gdm theme, wallpapers, icon theme, session splashes and gtk theme use this

$ sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-look

I didn’t installed gdm theme and session splashes so i did this:

$ sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-theme ubuntustudio-icon-theme ubuntustudio-wallpapers



Here I attached a file that contains deb packages for ubuntustudio-theme, ubuntustudio-icon-theme, ubuntustudio-wallpapers and gtk2-engines-murrine (required by ubuntustudio-theme). For you who use Dapper or Edgy or maybe who use 64bit can try that file to install Ubuntu Studio theme.

ubuntustudiotheme.tar.gz Downloads: 14872 times

For you running Edgy Eft please use this gtk2-engines-murrine_0.30.2-1_i386.deb than the one provided in the file above. Thanks to ragingmon!

UPDATE (16 January 2008):
If you are using Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) the packages is already in the repository, so you can skip step number 1-3
