Gnome Shell - Aqua by satya164 Gnome Shell - Aqua by satya164
If you use Gnome Shell 3.6 or 3.8, please install Elegance Colors instead.

---

Aqua is a subtle light theme for Gnome Shell (Too much light?). The theme is compatible with the Gnome Shell 3.2. (Sorry folks. I don't have time to update Aqua for Gnome Shell 3.4. You are free to fork it if you like.)

---

Ubuntu users can install Aqua from our themes PPA using the following commands,

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:satyajit-happy/themes
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-theme-aqua

---

Installation Instructions:

Extract the zip file to the themes directory i.e. "~/.themes/" or "/usr/share/themes/" or use Gnome Tweak Tool to install.

Install the User Theme Extension and use the Gnome Tweak tool to choose the themes.

To install the Gnome Shell theme without the User Theme Extension,

1. First backup your Gnome Shell theme directory i.e. "/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/".

2. Extract the zip file and rename "gnome-shell" directory to "theme",

3. Copy it to "/usr/share/gnome-shell/".

4. Restart GNOME Shell by pressing "Alt+F2", then type r and press Enter.

I don't have time and I don't think I'll be able to update. Try Shine if you are looking for a light theme.

I have a question about installing it (I'm a noob at some themes).

How do you install it on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot?
