A theme is a graphical user interface that the user can set any picture as theme. Chrome OS theme is basically material designed GTK theme with flat and elegant colors. This tutorial explains the installation of Chrome OS theme on Ubuntu 16.04.
Before beginning the installation procedure, the Unity tweak tool should be installed in the target system for the Chrome OS themes to be supported. To install, execute the following command.
root@linuxhelp1:~# add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes themes uploaded on http://www.NoobsLab.com PPA For exact theme version and support visit on site and see themes page More info: https://launchpad.net/~noobslab/+archive/ubuntu/themes Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpdsq9tdu8/secring.gpg' created gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpdsq9tdu8/pubring.gpg' created gpg: requesting key F59EAE4D from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com gpg: /tmp/tmpdsq9tdu8/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created gpg: key F59EAE4D: public key "Launchpad PPA for NoobsLab" imported gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1) OK
The repositories are added to the terminal. Now update the repository using the apt-get update command.

The repositories are updated in the target system. Install the Chrome OS themes by executing the following command and press y to continue with the installation.
