Now it’s time to download Vimix theme file and install. But before going to download, first, learn how to apply themes and icons on your system. To change gtk themes on Ubuntu Gnome or Unity desktop, you need Ubuntu Tweak tool or Gnome tweak tool installed on your system. In case you don’t have, follow my tutorial two tutorials – How To Use Themes and Icons on Various Linux Desktop and How to Customize Gnome Shell with GTK Themes.

Install Or Uninstall (from the Official site)

Open the terminal at the current directory.

if you want to get the last vimix theme version online, you can

Run

When running the installer script in ubuntu16.04 or later, if you had this error:
