If you thought that the default Ubuntu mix of Brown and Orange sucked , then here’s your chance to make it cool blue. You don’t need to download anything big. Just a couple of wallpapers and a splash screen. Are you ready to take a dip into blue territory ? Then let’s begin…

1.Login Window

First thing’s first. Let’s make the Login Window blue. Go to System>Administration>Login Window

Select any blue Login Window like Circles or Happy Gnome and click on the radio button beside it.

Now , click on the security tab and click on the check box beside ” Allow local system administrator login “. This allows graphical root login which we wil use later.

That’s it , you are done with the login window.

2.Wallpaper

Full Story.
