Elegance Gnome Shell Theme

Elegance is a clean HUD theme for Gnome Shell made by Satyajit Sahoo. The theme is compatible with the latest Gnome Shell 3.2.

  • First backup your Gnome Shell theme directory i.e. "/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/".
  • Extract the tar.gz file and rename "gnome-shell" directory to "theme", 
  • Copy it to "/usr/share/gnome-shell/".
  • Restart GNOME Shell by pressing "Alt+F2", then type r and press Enter.
You can also install theme selector extension and use gnome tweak tool to switch themes. Follow the instructions below (for Ubuntu 11.10):
  • Run the following command: sudo apt-get install git-core
  • Install Gnome Tweak Tool by running following command: sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
  • Download Gnome Shell extensions by running following command: git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-shell-extensions
  • Now access the directory from terminal by running following command: cd gnome-shell-extensions/
  • Finally run this command to install the extension: ./autogen.sh --prefix=$HOME/.local --enable-extensions="user-theme"
  • Logout, come back and use Gnome Tweak Tool to switch themes.
Many thanks to Satya for the tip
