Steps to Customize Desktop on Ubuntu…
Can you please give me your Ubuntu version so that I can provide you more specific information. Here is a step by step process to install a new Ubuntu 11.10 theme .
Go to your home directory and create a new folder. Rename it as .themes, now click on Ctrl+h to view the directory as folder names starting with dot(.) are considered as hidden files in Ubuntu.
Download a theme from the link ( http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Environment/Themes/ )
Extract the files into the .themes folder.
In the Unity panel click on Ubuntu logo and search for Ubuntu Tweak Tool.
Select theme in the left side menu. Select the extracted theme name in the select list corresponding to GTK+theme and Window theme.
Its all done! You need to restart your PC in order to finish the installation process and enjoy the new theme.
