A complete theme suite for Pantheon. Includes fonts and interface / dock / icon themes.
This is a development version. I plan to make ready-to-install packages in the future, but right now, you'll need to install the theme manually. If you have no idea how to do this, fear not! Be ready for a Tweak Your System 101!
Before we can proceed, there's a few things we need to do.
First, follow this tutorial to install elementary Tweaks
Second, we need to open a Files
window with administrator permissions.
Open your Applications menu. Type gksudo pantheon-files
and press Enter. A window requesting your password will appear, enter it and press OK.
Now, proceed to the folder where you've downloaded the theme. Usually, it's /home/your username/Downloads.
Then, search for Fresh.tar.gz
. Right click it, and from the menu that appears, select extract
A new folder called Fresh Suite
will appear. Open it and then follow the next instructions.
Open the folder Icons
. Right-click the folder Fresh
, and select Copy
. Then, navigate to /usr/share/icons/
. Right-click in any white space and select "Paste".
Go back to the Fresh Suite
folder. Now, enter the "Interface" folder. Copy the folder that's inside of it to /usr/share/themes
, the same way you did with the icon folder.
Once again, return to the Fresh Suite
folder. Copy that folder to /usr/share/plank/themes/
Stop. Breath. Now, for the last time, go to the Fresh Suite
folder. There, open the Fonts
folder. Copy both folders that are inside of it to /usr/share/fonts/opentype
That's it, the theme is now installed!
"But, wait, nothing has changed! YOU FOOLED ME!"
Oh, you silly, silly, little person. Now that we've installed it, we need to apply it!
Applying the theme
Yeeeeep, now it's the time to get rewarded for all our hard work!
Open your applications menu, and search for "System Settings".
OK, good. Now, search for Tweaks - remember that tutorial you've followed before you did everything?
This is elementary Tweaks. It's a 3rd party application that allows you to change lots of things in your system. It's really nifty, well-organized and handy. Let me teach you how you can apply the theme you just installed - which, at least I think, is why you read through all of this until now??? Anyway... let's make the magic happen!
Open the Icons drop down menu, and set it to Fresh. The icons should change right now.
Set Window theme and Interface theme to Fresh. The interface theme also should change.
Select Plank in the sidebar. Open the Theme menu and set it to Fresh too. The dock theme should be applied.
OK, now to the fonts. Select the Fonts category in the sidebar. Now, apply those settings:
Default font: Source Sans Pro | 10
Document font Open Sans | 10
Monospace font: Source Code Pro | 10
Window Title font: Source Sans Pro Bold | 10
And if everything went right... Ta-da!
Congratulations on your newly acquired desktop theme! *throws a big party*
