Material Design is a new interface design language that Google has created to Android Lollipop 5.0. It is also used for the development of web pages and now makes the leap to Linux. It was to be expected, especially after the latest news from Evolve OS and Quantum OS, projects that intend to design "faces" for Linux distros with this language.
But for the rest of the distributions, the developer Sam hewitt, has created Paper. A new theme for GTK to make it work on any distro that has GNOME and enjoy Material Design in our desktop environment.
Although paper It is still in beta phase, it can already be tested. It will be polished and improvements will be included soon. An exclusive icon pack and another custom theme for Plank will also be included. But if you don't want to wait to use it, you can install it now from the developer's official PPA repository:
Sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snwh/pulp Sudo apt-get update Sudo apt-get install paper-gtk-theme
That's for Debian-based distros, but for the rest, you can download the package to install it from the official website of the Paper project. You will even find information to activate Paper in desktop environments other than GNOME such as Unity from Ubuntu.
