Nimbus theme with Gnome in GNU/Linux

I was looking for a good theme for Gnome on my gnu/linux distro and opensolaris theme called Nimbus is really cool as you can see.

To install this theme it i followed these steps:
  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. Run make  and make install as privileged user.
  4. Go to the appearance settings in Gnome and you should be able to find the Nimbus theme with its variants.
That's all! Good luck!
