Unity Theme

New theme concept for use in Lucid Lynx that should cover all screens. (Splash, login, lock and desktop screen)


It's being born to give Ubuntu or more stylized and fluid look. It's roughly based on the Dusk/Wasp theme and should cover all aspects in Ubuntu and make use of the current icon set (Humanity). Thus icon sets and background's (except maybe the login screen's background) are not part of this project.

Please post you comments and suggestions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1397770

Aspects that needs skinning:

Splash screen

  • - Startup / Shutdown

    - User Message

Full desktop

Lock screen

  • - Screensaver (Example)
    - Unlock
    - User Message
