    I’ve tried but didnt get the same titlebar, colors and minimize, close etc buttons’ shape as these screenshots do. What did you choose or what did you install after installing cinnamon?

      If you want similar look and feel of Cinnamon Desktop, you need to install Paper Theme on Ubuntu using following commands.

      $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snwh/pulp
      $ sudo apt-get update
      $ sudo apt-get install paper-gtk-theme
