Lightning GTK Theme from Linux Mint contains both the Lightning GTK theme and the Linux Mint icon set.
I spent a goodly amount of time trying to find the Lightning GTK Theme that comes packaged with Linux Mint 6 so that I could use it on Ubuntu. Although there is a version called Green Lightning available, it has been modified, and I wanted the exact same one Linux Mint has.
So, I finally loaded Linux Mint on my computer and copied the GTK theme over to Ubuntu. Since I had such a hard time finding it, I thought I'd post it here so others could share in the glory of this really cute GTK theme.
Keep in mind that I did not design this: I had no part in its creation and cannot take any credit for it. It was designed by the Linux Mint artwork team, and all accolades and donations should go to them.
How to install?
· Right click on your desktop and select Change Desktop Background
· Click on the first tab: Theme
· Drag and drop the theme's archive in the Appearance Preferences window.
· If everything is OK, you will receive a confirmation message and you can activate the theme just by clicking on it.
GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
