Lately, I install Ubuntu 10.04 on Virtual Box, and pretty same thing on how you install it at your very own computer.
Computer Specifications: ASUS P5P800S Motherboard, 2GB DDR Kingston, Intel Pentium 4 Processor 3.0 GHz, DVDRW ROM, 500 GB Seagate HDD, Orion Casing with PSU 500watts .
Here are the Steps / Instructions on How to Change Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or Ubuntu 11.04 Desktop Appearance using Virtual Disk Image (VDI) or at your very own computer.
(Note: In order to use this service, you must have an internet connection so that if your trying to install available updates it will downloaded on your Ubuntu OS.)
1. At the Ubuntu Desktop, go to System > Prefences > then click Appearance.
2. This will customize your desktop, at the Appearance Preferences, go to Themes, if you like to change the layout of your desktop, Background forScreensavers, Wallpapers, additional themes. Then Fonts, if you want to modify the font layout of your desktop.
Then finally, the Visual Effects, which is my favorite, because it adds extra life on your desktop, it has 3D effects and with pleasing waving effects, like for an example if you drag or minimize the tab, it will have an extra effects. Cool huh? Used it and see for yourself. 😀
(Note: You need to install your graphic card driver, for you to enable the Extra Visual Effects. – Having problems on Enabling your Desktop Effects and for Alternative Graphic Card Driver Installation – click here)
