Equinox Theme with Faenza icons for GNOMEFiled under: Interesting;
I'm not a big desktop tweaker, but from time to time I would like to work at something “other” rigid. So I've long used the Shiki themes, later changed to Elementary and worked with Lucid since the new Ubuntu theme. Now me, the new icons and the Faenza Theme Equinox to have misled once again reshape the desktop.All these themes are still in development, but they do really well on the desktop. Thanks to a developer of the PPAs, the themes are also quick to install.
Theme, GTK engine and icons are all from the hand of Tiheum, the Equinox is descended from Aurora GTK engine. Tiheum offers both the themes as well as the engine is a launchpad PPA, so you can easily install the whole theme and keep up to date. Packages are available for Lucid, Lucid and also for the upcoming version of Ubuntu Maverick.
# Add repository$ Sudo apt-add-repository ppa: tiheum / equinox & & sudo apt-get update# Icons install Faenza$ Sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme# Equinox theme and install engine$ Sudo apt-get install equinox equinox-theme-ubuntu-theme
Who does not use Ubuntu, which may be the GTK engine and the Faenza-download icons from gnome-look.org. However, you have to take the engine itself compiling.
After installing the packages can be found under “System ->Preferences ->Appearance”, the new Equinox Themes. Tiheum offers several different versions that use other colors and / or use the arrangement of the window buttons in Ubuntu Lucid.
The Nautilus comes naturally out particularly well if you replace him with the Nautilus Elementary. Advice and information on Nautilus Elementary please can extract the contribution Elementary desktop and the section “Nautilus: Novel Bread Crumbs” …
Developed for the upcoming Ubuntu release its own font. The Ubuntu font is STILL in a closed testing phase, it can anyway, and now everyone must try. In my view it is worthwhile, because the font on the screen makes a really good impression. This requires an account on launchpad.net and membership in the group kubuntu-users.
To get the font you have, unfortunately, currently operate a little effort. First you must join the launchpad group kubuntu-users. Do not worry, anyone can hold a Launchpad account. Then you can otherwise locked page Open Beta Testing Ubuntu font, then you come on to the PPA with the font. Read the note in the introduction carefully, as you add the repository to your sources.list by hand must.
Once you installed the source package and your package sources have reread the font you can about the package ubuntu-Private-fontsInstall and then to “System ->Preferences ->Appearance ->Fonts” Select. Observed that the font is still in development and monospaced fonts, for example, are still missing. For the terminal you have to dodge more so to other fonts.
[UPDATE] After being approached several times because that is exactly how the Ubuntu font, is now a video tutorial for Installationsweg. I do not explain everything step-by-step, but at least it should now be clear how to get the necessary entry in the sources.list. Visible in the video access I changed after the recording of the video [/ UPDATE]
Mouse Cursor Bug
The Equinox also install the DMZ cursor theme as an additional theme for the pointer. Here, unfortunately, suggests to the bug # 459 647 from Compiz. The new cursor is only used in some applications such as Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and Co., you move your mouse over pure GTK applications such as gEdit, Nautilus or Rhytmbox, one sees only the traditional white cursor. The bug is now fixed to date, unfortunately, so that one has to help out with the workaround in comment # 15. Generated to “own” cursor-theme …
