In this tutorial we will see another cool dark GTK3 theme (malys - blackCITY) for Ubuntu/Linux Mint that fits well with Gnome Shell or Unity. The owner of this theme has also created great icon themes for Ubuntu which I included one of them (malys-ex) with malys - blackCITY so that you get a complete pack. Here is a screenshot of malys - blackCITY under Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin:


I have uploaded the theme and icons in one package to our custom PPA. You can simply install it under Ubuntu 12.10/12.04/11.10 and Linux Mint 13 or older with the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/gtk3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install malys-blackcity-ex

To enable malys-blackCITY use Gnome Tweak Tool, or run these commands from the terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'malys-blackCITY'

gconftool-2 --set --type string /apps/metacity/general/theme 'malys-blackCITY'

To enable the malys-ex icon theme, run this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme 'malys-ex'
