Pop is intended to be installed through the package manager. Packages for Ubuntu are available in PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:system76/pop
sudo apt update
sudo apt install pop-theme

It's recommended to use the pop-theme metapackage, as this will pull in all components of the look. However, individual components can be installed separately, e.g:

sudo apt install pop-gtk-theme

It's also recommended to restart the GNOME Shell after applying the theme of your choice.

Enter the Shell's command launcher

Alt + F2

This will restart the Shell after you hit Enter
