We already know that there are countless GNU / Linux distros, and if we focus on Ubuntu, we have a good amount of official flavors, aimed at satisfying the needs of users from different points of view.
In this article we will show you how we can do this for your Ubuntu with GNOME looks just like Kubuntu with KDE Plasma 5. We will not focus on how to change the desktop environment, rather we will show you how we can install the new default KDE Plasma 5 (Breeze) theme in GNOME. We show you step by step.
Install KDE with GNOME
If we want to switch from GNOME to KDE Plasma 5, we can also opt for install “About” our current environment. Personally I think it is not the most recommended, as under my personal experience I have sometimes had graphic problems. However, if you want to try it, all you have to do is install one of the following packages:
KDE will be installed, leaving a small core of apps and utilities.
In addition to KDE, a wide range of KDE applications will be installed.
However, as we advanced in the introduction of the article, if all we want is for our GNOME to have the same image as KDE Plasma 5, we can also choose to to Install GNOME-Breeze |, The default theme of Plasma 5.
GNOME-Breeze is a GTK + theme designed to mimic the default KDE Plasma 5 (Breeze) theme. Requires GTK + 3.16 or higher, plus the theme engine for GTK2 pixmap / Pixbuf.
This theme is free software under the GPLv2 license, and if we want to see its source code or download the project, we can do it from its repository on GitHub.
per to Install GNOME-Breeze |It is as easy as opening the terminal and following the steps below:
- We move to a directory where we will download the theme. For example on the Desktop:
cd ~ / Desktop
- Download the theme by running:
- Now that we have the .zip theme on our desktop, we unzip it:
- If you do 1 ls, You will see that a directory named has been unzipped gnome-breeze-master. Well, the next step is to move this unzipped folder to the directory / Usr / share / themes. We can do this by running the following from the Terminal and located on the Desktop:
its cp -a gnome-breeze-master / usr / share / themes
- As a last step we just have to open the Retouching tools and select GNOME-Breeze as the theme.
And that’s it. From now on, our GNOME will look a little more like KDE Plasma 5 via GNOME-Breeze. We hope you found the article helpful. And what do you say? What is your favorite theme for GNOME?
