In this page, i will introduce 15 best GTK3 themes that you can use with Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) under Unity or Gnome Shell. The themes are also compatible with other Ubuntu versions (12.10/11.10, Linux Mint 13, etc.). To make the installation of these themes easier, I have uploaded them all to our custom PPA. You can add our PPA with these commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/gtk3


sudo apt-get update
