How to get this fancy Ubuntustudio-theme in Ubuntu Feisty

Free Image Hosting at You sure hear of Ubuntustudio which was released recently. “A multimedia creation flavor of Ubuntu. Ubuntu Studio is aimed at the GNU/Linux audio, video and graphic enthusiast as well as professional.” Maybe you have seen the nice theme too (like the screenshot on the right)

I will show you now how you can get this theme on your ordinary Ubuntu Feisty.

  1. Add the ubuntustudio repository to you sources.list and download the key and update:
    sudo su -c 'echo deb feisty main >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
    wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update
  2. Then install the packages as follows:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-gdm-theme ubuntustudio-icon-theme ubuntustudio-look ubuntustudio-screensaver ubuntustudio-theme ubuntustudio-sounds
    I am neither sure if you need all this packages nor if there are some missing, but for me it worked fine 😉
  3. Now activate the theme and wallpaper:
    1. Go to System -> Preferences -> Theme.
    2. Scroll down and choose UbuntuStudio (a nice dark theme).
    3. Click Apply Background
    4. Click Close
  4. If you want you can change the login manager too. (I did not because I use autologin and personally find the default ubuntu login manager nicer.
    1. To do this go to System -> Administration -> Login Window
    2. In the Local-Tab choose Ubuntu-Studio and click Close.

PS: The sound will be automatically applied. For the screensaver I do not know what is the ubuntustudio screensaver but it seems you have to set it manually.

    It worked for me, but i decided to try to use the human bootsplash with this theme, and for some reason I can not get the boot up or shutdown splash screens to show. my /etc/inittab is missing, so all i get is text boot and shutdown screens. does anyone know how to restore?
