Concept

A key element of any GTK theme is the Metacity control widgets with many examples presented here. The Ubuntu logo is based on circles and the desire is to leverage the strengths of its design in Metacity. The default control widgets are displayed muted.

Solid Design

Control Detail

The dimensions of the Metacity control widgets are 12.5 x 12.5 pixels and the simplicity of this design adds sharpness to the detail. Although the control widgets may be perceived as buttons they are actually dots. The icons fade to provide the illusion of activity when clicked. This is similar but opposite to action of clicked upper panel icons.

Those with a sharp eye for color may notice the color of the dot of the default widget is "#808080" or neutral gray. The color of the prelight state mimic Ubuntu colors of yellow, orange, and red.

Simple, functional, Ubuntu!
