Launchpad Entry: lubuntu-lucid-artwork
Contributors: Julien Lavergne
Packages affected: lubuntu-default-settings, lubuntu-artwork ?
Actually, Lubuntu didn't have a specific artwork. This spec describe how to implement an original theme so Lubuntu can be visualy recognized.
End-user can recognize Lubuntu with an original artwork. We will also try to improve the user experience by providing an artwork provided by the community.
Lubuntu need a visual identity, so people can recognize it easier.
- Setup a wiki page for people who want to propose Artwork.
- Make some advertising about the need of an original artwork for Lubuntu on forums, blog posts etc ...
- Organize a vote/feedback.
- Around Artwork freeze, make an IRC meeting to decide which theme we take.
- Update the package and upload to the archive
Set-up a page on the wiki so people can post their artwork, example https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Artwork/Incoming/Lucid
Advertise the need of a good artwork :
Ubuntu Forum : http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=16
LXDE forum : http://forum.lxde.org/viewforum.php?f=13&start=0
Art team mailing list : firstname.lastname@example.org
- Planet Ubuntu (gilir will posted something about Lubuntu Lucid)
Update lubuntu-default-application, or split it in a lubuntu-artwork package. Settings and artwork are mixed together in lxde-common package, following the same policy artwork and default settings should be in the same package.
Usual testing, report bugs against lubuntu-default-settings or lubuntu-artwork.
Nothing for now (2009-10-25)
BoF agenda and discussion
- Introduction of Lubuntu:
- Light-weight desktop environment
- based on LXDE components plus some apps to fulfill a desktop environment
- Currently Lubuntu wallpaper and artwork is not perfect.
- We should have a seperate package for artwork instead of patching existing LXDE packages. Work is already done, waiting to be publish on the archive
- Default LXDE theme is blue. We might want orange theme for Lubuntu. Possibly inherit Humanity icons from Ubuntu or Gnome-Colors Human?
- Learn from Kubuntu? Blue theme/icon theme
- Pick a suitable icon theme among existing icon themes. Suggesting Tango style icons.
- Part of the artwork from the upstream can be re-used.
- We need someone to lead the process of the artwork crafting.
- Ubuntu art community.
- We need gtk theme, icon theme, wallpapers, and usplash theme.
Window manager is openbox. Many Beautiful themes exist. However, creating a new theme is desired. See CrunchBang and other Openbox artwork for the openbox part.
- What is inside lubuntu-artwork package? Wallpaper, icon-set.
- We can split the package for different kind of artwork.
- add lubuntu artwork package to lubuntu seed once published
- See if we have already a complete artwork ready made by the community
