Install xfce4.

At the graphical login prompt, there is the option to select your type of session (GNOME, KDE, XFCE - whatever you've installed).

So, I would have to install xubuntu to my hard drive to get the theme? Any websites that I would get a theme like that?

For a test, I've installed xubuntu-artwork and xubuntu-default-settings, which both install Xubuntu themes, but the term "Xubuntu" doesn't appear in GNOME's theme chooser dialog.

- What do you mean by "Xubuntu theme" - window decorations and colors and such?
