Yaru-MATE on Ubuntu MATE 20.04

Are you interested in having the lovely new Yaru-MATE theme but are running Ubuntu MATE 20.04?

We have some good news :newspaper: ! Wimpy has just created a PPA which backports those brand new themes into our latest LTS release.

To get this new goodness, add the following PPA and update your system.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/yaru-mate
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

A very nice and detailed write-up about this:


Is there a way to choose a different colour scheme, e. g. blue?

sudo apt-get update before sudo apt-get upgrade

In modern versions add-apt-repository does update for us.


Thank You Wimpy !!! Let's try it :slight_smile:

Just tried it in virtual machine. This is just great ! this could be default themes in futures releases ?? :sweat_smile:
Both light and dark themes looks amazing !
Edit : I wish to see a yaru-folder-color for Mate :slight_smile: I would like to do it my self , but i know nothing about this ...
Anyway ; I have tried to install yaru-color-folder from ppa too, but doesn't work for Caja.

I have the Mate desktop version of Linux Mint on this system as the Nvidia drivers have not been patched for the latest kernels. I had to use the sudo apt-get update command to get it to work on this system.
