Install Numix Theme and Icons on Elementary OS Luna

Numix theme is currently my favorite theme for my Linux desktop. Here I want to show you how to install Numix theme and icons on Elementary OS Luna.

numix-elementary-os

First, we need to add the Numix repository to Elementary OS Luna. Execute this command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa

Now update system

sudo apt-get update

Now install Numix theme and icons

sudo apt-get install numix-gtk-theme numix-icon-theme-circle

Once finished, you must change your theme and icon using gnome-tweak-tool. If you don’t have it, install it first

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

Now open the program

gnome-tweak-tool

Change theme and icon from theme tab on gnome-tweak-tool

gnome-tweak-tool

  1. DO NOT USE THIS METHOD! Doing so for me broke the gala window manager

    ElementaryOS has its own tweak too, elementary-tweaks, goolge it and use that instead.

    • I should have read your comment sooner ! :( Now i can’t restore the window manager… how did you resolve it? elementary-tweaks is not helping…
