So, quick roundup:
- Intrepid Ibex new theme is dark
- 63.88% of everyone who voted on this poll at Ubuntu Forums doesn’t like it
- It sucks
Now, for the record, neon who is a great contributor for the Ubuntu Development (precisely, the 312th best idea contributor), said:
How many times do we have to remind people, the dark theme was only for testing purposes; in fact, for default it’s been switched back to the light version.
And, Mark Shuttleworth, Canonical‘s founder said:
I think the great task in front of us in the next two years is to lift the experience of the Linux desktop from something stable and usable and not pretty, to something that’s art
This is how all that stuff adds up:
WillWill’s Ubuntu Mockup
That’s just a mockup, but it surely is GREAT!
I don’t know if that GDM is possible, as the GDM is edited through an XML file and I don’t know whether or not one can customize the selector for it to look like that yellow bar. I believe the whole rest may be achieved through a GTK Theme.
I do hope this theme gets official on one of the future Ubuntu releases.
DanRabbit just implemented some of the GDM Screen. It isn’t like the original yet, but he did an amazing job in there.
