Ubuntu “Communitheme” – A New Ubuntu Community theme

Today I am going to share a simple tutorial on a new Ubuntu Community Theme called Communitheme theme. This brand new theme is one of the proposed features for New Ubuntu version. Ubuntu Communitheme – as the name implies – is developed by the Ubuntu loved community across the world. Communitheme is based on Gnome’s default theme Adwita and looks a bit similar to Ubuntu’s own Ambiance GTK theme. Moreover, it offers an icon set theme which is based on Suru icon theme – inspired by Ubuntu Touch.

Though Ubuntu has its own theme, still the company wants to make a new theme and the main goal is to make a modern looking theme built on a neutral, upstream base. This Ubuntu Communitheme provides a complete set of GTK Theme, icon theme set, GNOME Shell theme, and a GDM login theme.

Though this Communitheme is still in development stage and not yet ready for being a default theme in upcoming Ubuntu, you can have a look and feet the experience by installing it onto the system via official PPA.

How To Install the New Ubuntu Community Theme

Before installing Ubuntu Community Theme, you have to add the “Communitheme PPA” to the system software repository. This PPA package let you test the Ubuntu Community Theme daily built on your latest Ubuntu system without replacing the vanilla Ubuntu session.

To add the PPA and install, run these commands one by one in a new Terminal window:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:communitheme/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ubuntu-communitheme-session

Upgrade the Daily Build of Communitheme

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

And it’s installed! Restart your computer, the login screen will use Communitheme by default. Select the “Ubuntu Communitheme” session from the login screen (click the gear) and log in. This will start the GNOME-Shell, GTK2, GTK3 and icon themes.

Moreover, you can change the Gnome theme and icon theme set using Gnome Tweak Tool.
