    How to: Tweak GTK and VIM simmilar to old BT5 days

    Morning;

    This is a How To, but is more appropriate for the "installation" thread, so I'm posting here...

    I was a big fan of the Dust theme used in BT5 ("dark for dark business"). I also prefer VIM syntax highlighting and whatnot.

    Below are the steps taken to make that happen. You can see a screenshot of the them on the gnome-look site. I couldn't upload here as there's a 19kb limit

    Enjoy.

    How:
    1) Configure GTK look and feel
    # dpkg -s libgtk-3-0 | grep '^Version'
    Version: 3.4.2-6

    Installed: Nissl-Adwaita-Dark-4 theme from:
    http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=149521

    Download the theme, unzip, untar, then move the directory as:
    # mv Nissl-Adwaita-Dark-4 /usr/share/themes/

    Install gnome-tweak-tool:
    # apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

    Run as:
    # gnome-tweak-tool
    Or, Applications --> System Tools --> Preferences --> Advanced Settings
    In the Theme tab set:
    Icon theme: Ubuntu-mono-dark
    GTK+ theme: Nissl-Adwaita-Dark-4
    Window theme: Nissl-Adwaita-Dark-4

    2) Configure vi/vim
    # cp /etc/vim/vimrc ~/.vimrc
    Edit ~/.vimrc
    I did not uncomment the "filetype pluigin indent on" as I prefer manual tabs.
    I did uncomment:
    syntax on
    set background=dark
    set showcmd
    set showmatch
    set ignorecase
    set smartcase
    set incsearch
    set autowrite
    set hidden
    set mouse=a
