3. Unity Ambiance

Unity Ambiance

The default Ubuntu theme is a well-known theme for Linux. It features a classic orange and blackish-grey color, which works well. But it is a matter of sorrow that only GTK users will enjoy the classic Ubuntu theme.

Unity Ambiance is a plasma theme that will provide features like the classic Ubuntu theme. Besides, this theme allows Plasma users to transform their KDE set up to enjoy the infamous Ubuntu Ambiance theme at all.

  1. Maia Transparent is a nice theme. What icon theme is used in the screenshot? They look very uniform and I like uniform. They remind me of the icon theme my Samsung Galaxy Note currently uses. Dex, I believe that theme is called. I also agree that Helium should have been listed. Great Plasma theme, as well.
