Welcome to the ApricityOS_on_Ubuntu wiki!
ApricityOS on Ubuntu
ApricityOS design on Ubuntu Gnome3 instead Arch Linux
I made this project because I liked the design of ApricityOS, but for normal Linux User is the Arch system not easy to use. And because Ubuntu with Gnome3 has a good and easy usability, I have searched all packages which are necessary to made a "ApricityOS Design"-clone.
What you get
Here you see few screenshots of the design on the end. Only the Gnome bar on the top make the difference between ApricityOS and Ubuntu in ApricityOS style
To start you can easily download the *.zip or *.tar file on the top.
To use this Shell script, it is necessary that you have already installed the following
- Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus
- Gnome3 - Tested with Version 3.18.5-0
You can check your Gnome Version when you type in the terminal the command:
dpkg -l gnome-shell
If you still use Unity as GUI than you install gnome with this command in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop
sudo service gdm restart
Ubuntu Gnome Version
I can not explain why, but to change the Gnome GTK theme to Arc cause a issue in the window and you see the layout. I will check it at every new Ubuntu Gnome Version, but until Ubuntu Gnome cause the issue with the Arc theme you should avoid to use this theme, instead of this you can choose the Paper theme what is working good in Ubuntu Gnome.
Third Party packages
The script based on it that third-parties have allowed it to use the code on github. For that script I have used packages from this developers:
Numix Circle icon theme (Linux) - numixproject/numix-icon-theme-circle
The Arc Theme I have found on http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/06/install-latest-arc-gtk-theme-ubuntu-16-04
Arc theme - horst3180/arc-theme
The Paper Theme https://snwh.org/paper
This is a own developed script, I can not guarantee for full functionality on your system, even I can not guarantee for the availability of the external repositories. Because Im a spare time developer I will enhance it slowly and fix as first the bugs in it.
