Ubuntu is a popular Linux distribution and but to be honest, this is not the most beautiful Linux distribution. Elementary OS, Linux Mint, and Deepin are some of the best looking Linux distribution out there. Without doing any modification, those distributions come with pretty design and eye-catching. But don’t worry, we can make Ubuntu looks better. In this article, I want to summarize some of the best themes for Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 18.10. There are thousands of GTK themes and Icon themes that are ready for use. With a little effort, we can make Ubuntu even better.
The Best Themes for Ubuntu 18.04
I wrote an article showing how to make Ubuntu looks like Mac OS X Mojave. It’s pretty cool and beautiful theme. You may check out it here. It works with Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 18.10 as well.
If you don’t like Mac theme, continue reading to find more great themes.
The name of this theme is a bit difficult to pronounce. But, its appearance is not like its name. It is a modern and refined re-interpretation of Ambiance for Ubuntu 18.04. It works pretty well on both Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10. It’s a pretty nice theme. You can choose the left or right button.
Don’t like those great GTK3 themes for Ubuntu? Take a look at this Ultimate Maia, a material design GTK3 theme that also very beautiful. There are many variants you will find on Ultimate Maia. The variants have different base color.
Unfortunately, Ultimate Maia GTK theme does not have a special Gnome Shell theme that comes with it. It would be good if the designer of this theme can create a special shell theme that will make this Ultimate Maia looks better.
Actually, this great GTK3 theme has been discontinued as per September 2018. But it still a nice theme that you can use in Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 18.10. This theme has a similar look with High Sierra theme. So, it still looks like Mac.
X-Arc Theme is one of my favorite theme.
E. Yaru Theme
I can’t under estimate this new default Ubuntu 18.10 theme called Yaru. It is a nice theme which looks gorgeous. If you are running Ubuntu 18.10, you already have this theme. But, if you are running Ubuntu 18.04, you probably want to install this theme. There are two variants, yaru and yaru dark.
So which one you think is the best? Share your opinion here with us.
