Customize Ubuntu 16 Desktop With Arc Dark Theme

So I was running ApricityOS for quite some time, which is a Arch Distibution. But a couple of hours before PyConZa I was trying to do a update and found that their repositories were reporting 404 errors, and turns out they have stopped their project :( . I quite liked ApricityOS, as it’s what you will expect when installing Arch with the basic applications and the numix icon/theme pack.

So I decided to use Ubuntu for a change.

Customizations:

For the Operating System, I am Ubuntu 16:

For my theme I am using Arc Dark:

Moka Icon pack for my Icons:

Terminator for my terminal of choice:

And my config:

~/.config/terminator/config
