Elementary Theme and Docky!

Well i was addicted to Mac OSX theme and AWN on my ubuntu for a while. You can check my post about the theme here. It was really nice, though i got bored of it. Was definitely looking for a change, but didn’t any.

Elementary Theme :

One day was reading a blog n came across this elementary theme. After i installed it, started like it. Its a dead simple theme. Nice icons.. Overall has a same feeling like osx theme but different in its own way. Good thing is its got a PPA! yeah PPA, so you won’t miss on any updates..

Installation :

You can find this PPA here


or using the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementaryart/elementarydesktop

and install using:

sudo apt-get install elementary-desktop

and then running: –


Docky :

I’m a great fan of AWN. Been using it for a while, though suddenly i decided to try Docky. Because lots of people were liking it. So i thought lets give it a try and installed it.

Initially i didn’t like that much, but soon started liking it. One of the nice feature is grouping feature. If you have more than one nautilus windows open, it will be inside one icon and you right click on it to select the right window. In AWN it was like three icons for three windows. Other features include gmail notifier – very handy and nice.

Installation :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docky

Note: Docky is now a standalone application and, from some point soon, no longer be part of GNOME Do.

You should definitely try this, Worth a try 😀
