How to install the Cambridge Theme on Raspberry Pi

Cambridge by PIXEL

Since almost the beginning of the Raspberry Pi, users of this SBC board have considered it a minipc, but it may be now that users really see it as a true desktop computer. And as a result of this, we not only have software optimized for this Hardware but we also find specific programs for this platform such as the PIXEL desktop.

PIXEL is a desktop for the Raspbian operating system, a Linux distribution created for Raspberry Pi, which makes it more functional to use on Raspberry Pi computers. PIXEL is focused on optimizing features and space, but it's not particularly pretty.

Cambridge Theme has been created to make PIXEL more beautiful than Raspberry Pi

So Raspberry Pi users have created a nice theme for PIXEL. East desktop theme is called Cambridge. It is based on the beautiful university town and is now available to all Raspbian users. To do this, we just have to open a terminal in PIXEL and write the following:

sudo apt-get install cantab-theme

This will start the installation of wallpapers, wallpapers, sounds, icons and all that an artwork You need to create an environment that is based in the city of Cambridge. You can also choose to install only the wallpapers, by typing the following in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install cantab-wallpaper

And if we just install screen protectors, we have to write the following:

sudo apt-get install cantab-screensaver

But the most interesting thing is not this topic for PIXEL, something that for many if it will be, but the fact that specialized desktop themes are created on the Raspberry Pi platform, which makes this type of hardware ideal or at least more ideal than before to be used as a desktop or laptop, don't you think?
