Make Ubuntu more beatiful with Nordic Theme

One of the most relevant new features of Ubuntu 18.10 is its new GTK theme and icons. However, there are other themes to enrich even more the visual aspect of Ubuntu. For example, Nordic Theme.

At the moment there is a great love for dark themes, and an example of this is the implementation of Apple with Mac OS Mojave. In addition to being pleasing to the eye, they improve the productivity and health of our eyes. So, they are a success in this modern world.

In Linux, we have many dark and well-implemented themes like Nordic Theme.

Nordic Theme for Linux

Nordic is a Gtk3.20+ theme created using the awesome Nord color palette. This ensures that your components are subtly careful with design and color matching. Making the subject very delicate for our eyes, thus improving our computer performance.

First, download the theme using Git. Open a Terminal and run:
