Hands-on: a close look at Ubuntu's new non-brown theme
Advertisement
#1
Canonical is updating Ubuntu's look and feel with a new style that departs from the popular Linux distribution's traditional brown theming. The new theme, which was announced yesterday as part of an initiative to overhaul Ubuntu's branding and visual identity, will be used in the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 release, codenamed Lucid Lynx.

The design documents that Canonical published Wednesday left a lot of questions unanswered. Fortunately, the new themes were rolled out to Ubuntu 10.04 alpha testers today in the latest set of package updates. We used the Ubuntu alpha to conduct some hands-on testing so that we could see how the new theme looks with a number of popular applications.
The new themes

There are two variants of the new theme. The default variant, which has dark menus and panels, is called Ambiance. The alternate version, which uses lighter colors, is called Radiance. Both themes have rounded widgets and salmon-colored highlights. They use the Murrine theme engine but don't really conform to the glassy look is that is characteristic of Murrine-based themes. The only widgets that have a glassy
overlay are the progress bars.
