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.

Download Vimix GTK Theme file

Download Theme from Opendesktop  Download Source code from GitHub

Install Or Uninstall (from the Official site)

Open the terminal at the current directory.

Run

./Vimix-installer

Or double-click to open that script files and select “run at the terminal” at Nautilus.

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

Run

./update-vimix-online

Or double-click to open the launcher “update vimix online”.

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

XMLLINT not set and xmllint not found in path; skipping xml preprocessing.

To fix it you have to install libxml2-utils

sudo apt install libxml2-utils

When running the installer script in Fedora 24 or later, you need to install ‘glib2-devel’.

sudo dnf install glib2-devel

Maybe you don’t like the new title button style, now you can remove it:

Run

Or double-click to open that script files and select “run at the terminal” at Nautilus.
