"I get a lot of questions as to how to make the GNOME desktop look better. This question can be approached from numerous angles: Compiz, Emerald, Metacity, Window borders, etc. I have covered Compiz here on Ghacks (see Compiz on Ghacks) as well as Emerald (see Emerald on Ghacks). But I have yet to cover the basic theming of the GNOME desktop. As of this tutorial, that will all change.

"Fortunately the developers of the GNOME desktop have seen to it that changing the GNOME theme isn't all that difficult. The only difficultly you might come across is finding out exactly where everything is taken care of. And, again, thanks to the developers of GNOME, there is a handy tool for this.

"In this tutorial I am going to show you how to install new themes for GNOME as well as installing pieces of themes so you can mix and match your theme to perfectly suit your taste."
