13 cool themes for Linux

Those of who are bored of the dull themes of Linux, I found 13 cool new themes for Linux.

Bisigi Themes provide 13 free themes, each has its own icon-set, wallpaper, and color scheme. Just a few terminal commands are needed to install them.

Installation instructions of Bisigi Themes

Few people have complained that the link above does not open, so I’ll give the instructions here as well.

Add the key for repository:

gpg –keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371 –recv-key 881574DE && gpg -a –export 881574DE | sudo apt-key add –

Add the repository in sources.list. Open the terminal and fire the command:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Copy and paste the following lines at the bottom and save the file and exit.

## Thèmes du projet bisigi
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

Note:Replace karmic with jaunty or hardy if you are using 9.04 or 8.04 respectively.

Update your software sources and install the themes:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bisigi-themes

You’ll be prompted to choose your desktop resolution during installation. Choose the correct one for continuing the installation.

You can access the themes by going to System->Preferences->Appearance

Cheers!
