A Leopard theme for Ubuntu/Linux
tested under Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
It is time to give a modern look to our desktop! The new theme makes more clever use of orange than previously (not over-use it) and is mainly color-neutral.
Very simple. Just extract the archive somewhere and drag and drop the file new-wave(xxx).tar.gz where (xxx) is the version number e.g. 050 to the Appearance settings window.
I have started to work on a dark but eye friendly theme. I use my computer 7/24 and my eyes are not ‘trained’ enough to take the big difference of contrasts on the screen.
Therefore I aim to harmonize the use (to be able to use my computer for many hours without making my eyes tired) and the look (to have something tasteful on the desktop that I look at for many hours).
The theme will be updated often, after any progress I made.
The theme is based on the great Aurora engine and its installation is required.
Suggested gnome-panel size: 24 pix.
I have included the config file for compiz setup. Import into your compiz configuration and you will have the same opacity effect on menus like in the preview. You will find the config file in: /home/[USER]/.themes/LUX folder.

FINALLY, THE 1.0 RELEASE IS AVAIABLE
I choose Tangerine Icon Set for the 1.0 release, a Ubuntu Core supported set (so there’s apt-get support for it, however it is included as .tar.gz into the theme pack).
There’s also an installation howto for the Firefox Tangerine theme.
The colour of the windows background now is brighter to fix the “unreadable text” bug noticed by a lot of users.
Thanks to everybody who commented, you halped a lot in developing!
Enjoy! Comment and suggestions are very welcome, i’ll start planning the 1.1 release as soon as possible!
This theme is a proposal for the artwork of the next Ubuntu release, Hardy Heron.
It is a complete theme pack.
