Ubuntu Lucid v10.10 Light Themes

The new Ubuntu v10.10 has updated its themes to be brighter and more colorful. As a nod to  the v10.10 Lucid release on Thursday 09-30-10, you can add the new themes Ambiance and Radiance on your present Gnome install. Below are how to get and update them for your distro and my own screen shot results.

To install the latest Ubuntu Light Themes (Ambiance, Eclipse and Radiance), use the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/light-themes && sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox light-themes gtk2-engines-murrine

Below are my results. I've added the Shiki Metacity title bars for a cleaner look.
