Plank Themer is a nice and useful tool for Plank users. With this Plank-Themer, we can easily change the Plank theme using mouse click. You don’t have to use the older way via Terminal just to change the Plank theme. Plank-Themer works on Ubuntu, Elementary OS and other Ubuntu based Linux. So, its not limited to Elementary OS only. For more information, please visit Plank-Themer website.
Plank Themer will place a dock item on your Plank. To change its theme, simply click the Plank-Themer dock and it will popup all available theme. Simply click on theme you want to activate.
To install Plank-Themer on Elementary OS Freya, simply execute the following commands on Terminal
sudo apt-get install -y xterm
cd ~ && mkdir -p ~/.temp-plank-themer && cd ~/.temp-plank-themer && wget https://github.com/rhoconlinux/plank-themer/archive/master.zip && unzip master.zip && cd plank-themer-master/ && rm -fR ~/.config/plank/dock1/theme_index; rm -fR ~/.config/plank/dock1/themes-repo; cp -a theme_index/ ~/.config/plank/dock1 && cp -a themes-repo/ ~/.config/plank/dock1 && cd ~ && rm -R ~/.temp-plank-themer && sh ~/.config/plank/dock1/theme_index/plank-on-dock-themer.sh

This installation method can be used in most Ubuntu based Linux such as Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Elementary OS Luna, Elementary OS Freya, PinguyOS 14.04 and other Ubuntu derivatives. I also planning to include this Plank-Themer on gamblisfx installer script soon.
