If you are using a dual boot system with Ubuntu and Windows, you can clearly notice the limitations Linux has. And for many (myself included), Linux is extremely difficult. After awhile I came to the conclusion that I didn’t need ubuntu at all, but I still loved to look and feeling, after searching for ways to make my windows computer have that gnome feeling this is what I found:
Start with the visual style, if you haven’t already install Uxtheme Multipatcher, this will remove the limitations on your system, in order to install new themes. Then download the Human Visual Style Ubuntu Linux.
Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and safe your download theme in there.
Now right click on your Desktop and click on Properties. Go to Appearance and select Human as the theme.
Now change the icons, first install Icontweaker,after that install Ubuntu Icontweaker theme.
Next, change the wallpaper on your desktop, get the Ubuntu wallpaper Here or Here.
To replace the icons for Windows Explorer, first install Styler toolbar(free), get the Ubuntu Human Theme for Styler.
Now get the famous Ubuntu Cursor
Now, what everybody wants. The alternative to Beryl on Linux. Get it Here, and get that “3D CUBE” effect.
To change the boot screen download BootSkin (it’s free): Get it Here.
And download the Ubuntu Bootskin:
To get Ubuntu Logon screen go here.
For Mozilla Firefox Web Browser, you can install the Ubuntu Theme, for Thunderbird or Dapper Retouched for Opera.
