How to install Numix in Ubuntu 18.04/GNOME

 Installation Required-

Before downloading installing the theme we will need an application to set the theme on our Ubuntu 18.04's  GNOME. That software is GNOME Tweaks
you can download it from Ubuntu Software center.

 once you've installed GNOME Tweaks in your System you're ready to go-

Downloading Numix Theme-
To download Numix theme you can goto and search for "Numix collection" or you can download it directly from this link - DOWNLOAD

Here you'll find 5 files, download all the files except Cinnamon theme.

 After downloading all the files extract these files into same directory

Now go to your home directory and create two directory ".themes" and ".icons" if already doesn't exists. 
if you couldn't find these directories then please click on "Show hidden files" in home directory or just press "ctrl + h"  in your home directory to show hidden files. 


now open your extracted theme and icons files and cut/copy those directories that is having index.theme file inside it. 

like we have a extracted directory GTK_theme_Numix, and inside this directory we have another directory called Numix, and in that Numix directory we have an index.theme file. so in this case we'll copy that Numix directory and paste it into .theme directory that we've created in Home Directory.

Got it?

Let's see in the screenshots-

In above picture we have move/copied our Numix theme from /Downloads/GTK_theme_Numix to /.themes .

Now we've to copy Numix-R directory from /Downloads/Icons-Numix-R   to  /.icons and same with the  cursor theme. Copy Breez-Red directory from /Downloads/Cursors_Breeze-Red  and paste it too in /.icons directory.


Setting Numix as your current theme-

Now this is the last step -
open GNOME Tweaks and select Appearance. In Appearance window  you can see a section for themes, where you can select and change theme for Applications, Cursor, Icons and shell.

Now select Applications and change it to - Numix
select Cursor and change it to - Breeze-Red
select and select icons to - Numix-R
