This tutorial is going to show you how to install the Numix theme for Plank in Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 12.10.

Numix is one of my favorite icon and gtk themes. If you like it, you may also want Numix theme for Plank, the most lightweight dock on the planet.


To install it, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open the terminal. When it opens, run the commands below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install numix-plank-theme

For Ubuntu 14.04 and other Linux, download and extract the tarball and copy the folder created from the extraction to ~/.local/share/plank/themes (press Ctrl+H to view hidden file folders start with . in name.).

To apply the theme, edit the ~/.config/plank/dock1/settings and change the value of Theme line to Numix
