The current Ubuntu desktop

Time for a lighter theme, not that I don't like the DarkRoom theme anymore... but I want to try another thing, in this case, the Human Murrina GTK theme, and the GNOME colors icon set.

To begin with, download it to your ~/Desktop/.
The issue the "Extract here" to the downloaded "" file, after that, open a Terminal, and then:
cd ~/Desktop/GNOME_Colors_by_perfectska04/

Then extract the "gnome-human.tgz" package, and then copy it to the directory '/usr/share/icons/', that is:
sudo cp -R gnome-human /usr/share/icons/

After that, there are a couple of steps more involved:
cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3/chrome/icons/default
sudo cp -R default default.ORIG
sudo cp -R ~/Desktop/GNOME_Colors_by_perfectska04/Extras/gnome-human Extras/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3/chrome/icons/default/ /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3/chrome/icons/default/

cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3/
sudo cp -R icons icons.ORIGs
sudo cp -R ~/Desktop/GNOME_Colors_by_perfectska04/Extras/gnome-human Extras/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3/icons/ /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3/icons/

Then, to finish everything, it is necessary to execute this commands:
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/places/inode-directory.svg
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/places/inode-directory.png
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/24x24/places/inode-directory.png
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/22x22/places/inode-directory.png
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/places/inode-directory.png
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/icon-theme.cache
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -qf /usr/share/icons/gnome

And then logout or reboot to get all the changes done.
