The Radiance and Ambience that come by default with Ubuntu 10.04 looks amazing no doubt. But after sometime they get stale. If that is the case with you (or you simply want a stunning new theme) we suggest you look at Bisigi. Bisigi is not just a theme; its a collection of simple yet beautiful themes for GNOME. In this article, we will tell you how to get Bisigi themes in Ubuntu 10.04.

To install the Bisigi themes follow these steps:

  • Open the Terminal. Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal.
  • Add the Bisigi PPA with the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bisigi

  • Update the software list with

sudo apt-get update

  • If you want to install all the themes,

sudo apt-get install bisigi-themes
