I have said it before and I am saying it again. Numix is the best theme out there in the Linux world. In this article, we are going to see how to install Numix theme and icons in Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 16.04.

While I am stressing on Ubuntu, Numix is available for all major Linux distributions and desktop environments for e.g., GNOME, Cinnamon etc. Imagine the popularity and beauty of Numix that it is the default theme of Arch based beginner-friendly Linux distribution, Antergos.
