Make Ubuntu look like Vista



1. Get Ubuntu


If you are not already using it, download Ubuntu from ubuntu.com.

2. Vista fonts





You need the microsoft segoe UI font.
Look at the second post in this Forum

Unzip the downloaded archive and place the two .ttf files in your .fonts directory.
You can find it in your user folder. /home/$USERNAME/.fonts/
For example: /home/kimmik/.fonts

If the directory .fonts does not exist, create it.

3. The Aero-clone theme





Download the Aero-clone theme from Gnome-look.org

–Go to the download site–

Install the Beryl and GTK theme as usual

4. Icons





Download the nuoveXT-aero iconset

–Go to the download site–

Install the nuoveXT-aero iconset

5. Panel




Change the gnome-panel size to 32px height


6. Vista start-button screenlet





Download and install “Desktop Screenlets”

–Go to the download site–

Install the “orb” screenlet (The orb screenlet is included in the .tar.gz from gnome-look.org).

Place the orb screenlet above the main-menu button and lock the position.

7. Wallpapers





If you want to make the experience complete download some Vista wallpapers for your desktop.
I found very good wallpapers on this forum:

–WinMatrix-Forum: Overview of Vista Wallpapers–

–WinMatrix-Forum: Official Vista Wallpapers–

–WinMatrix-Forum: Vista Wallpapers which aren’t included in Vista per default–
