Many people liked the Interface of Windows 10 because now it carries all those features which Linux already have from years. Do you like the look of Windows 10 but don't want to use it? Here we brought Windows 10 GTK themes for you, this theme offers two versions Light and Dark, you can use whatever you like. But hold on, now many people will say like 'why you are so obsessed by other operating systems and so, Linux is great OS', yeah I do agree that many geeks consider Linux above all operating systems. The superiority of the Linux shows that you can do whatever you like to do with your OS, change look/design and so, that's called freedom. We should appreciate new comers to Linux instead of letting them down, and people leave Linux because they think it is quite difficult to survive with this OS.

If you are trying to focus on your work and don't want to disable notifications completely then here is a tool called "NoNotifications" for you, which works in Ubuntu Unity. It is just a simple panel indicator which allows you to disable notification temporarily. This tool should be enhanced to offer more features like mobile OS's already have, to completely disable everything Like: tones, alerts, notifications, and so, and schedule a time to activate/deactivate could be a plus for this small application.
There isn't much going on with this utility instead from the panel it offers just two options "Don't disturb" and "Show notifications", you can choose whatever needs to be chosen and icon on the panel shows whether it is activated or not.


To install NoNotifcations in Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial/15.10 Wily/14.04 Trusty open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in the Terminal:

This pack contains themes for GTK (which supports: Unity, Gnome, Cinnamon, Mate and Xfce two themes dark & light for Gnome Shell, two themes for Cinnamon, two icon packs, cursors. There are some issues with 16.04 where it make some parts of the pack useless: 1) boot/splash we do not recommend you to install boot screen because there is a known bug for plymouth but we are still sharing, if you want to give it a shot; 2) Login screen, it is only offered for Ubuntu Unity and Ubuntu Gnome users but if you have multiple desktops then you can't choose and another known problem, if you remove lightdm-webkit then you will have blank screen, to solve this issue you have to install other display manager, so better to not install it. 3) Slingscold which is known as launchpad, it does work on some desktops but it may don't work for some users and you may see blank launcher.
Themes used in this pack contains some parts from other sources credit also goes to these guys dark and other icon theme Mine, some code from white) and Jared from Ravefinity helped us in making of this transformation pack by fixing bugs in themes. In this pack we are offering Plank dock themes because it works without any issue unlike other docks. By following these instructions you can change look of your Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial to look like Mac. In previous packs we used LightDM webkit theme which looks quite similar to Mac OS X login screen, this time we are offering again but you have to install it on your own risk because we experienced a lot of issues after installing it (like: not able to login/blank screen).
