To install this theme it i followed these steps:
- Open a terminal and get the latest nimbus theme and extract it:
wget http://dlc.sun.com/osol/jds/downloads/extras/nimbus/nimbus-0.1.4.tar.bz2. So this url contains all versions of this theme. To extract:
tar -jxvf nimbus-0.1.4.tar.bz2
- After package extraction enter in the extracted directory and it should be possible to run:
./configure --prefix=/usr. I've used the prefix /usr because my themes dir is in /usr/share and not in /usr/local/share. Check where is your themes directory before run configure and then set the right prefix!
make installas privileged user.
- Go to the appearance settings in Gnome and you should be able to find the Nimbus theme with its variants.
