In the Desktop, right click->Change Desktop Background->Theme

In that window there is only 10 Themes shipped with Ubuntu, how can I install another themes and where can I found extra themes.

a great place for themes is:

http://gnome-look.org/

also i highly recommend the dust theme. i've installed it on a few laptops and really like it:
