elementary theme with new release and improved look

A new release of the popular elementary theme version 1.2 has been released. Now with adding improved support for Nautilus-Elementary, a revised style for the Midori web browser and some new look minimal scroll bars.

The theme also sees notable speed improvements & bug fixes.


The latest and greatest release of the Elementary GTK will be available via the Elementary PPA very shortly. In the mean time if you’re dying to play with the new scrollbars you can download the theme here http://danrabbit.deviantart.com/art/elementary-gtk-theme-83104033

Note that elementary uses and requires three theme engines: Murrine, Aurora, and Equinox. Aurora and Murrine are pre-installed in Ubuntu, but Equinox, can be installed via the Elementary PPA.

New default theme in Ubuntu’s 10.04 Empathy.

Yes! Getting rid of the simplified themes for Empathy! It’s time for something new, but also familiar, the new Empathy Adium theme, that we will have in Ubuntu 10.04. David Siegel, who works for Ubuntu’s Design and User Experience team, posted the news on his twitter account, also mentioning that it’ll be created by the designer of my favourite Empathy/Adium theme – ‘Renkoo’.

So isn’t it familiar to you?

If you can’t remember let see it on Gwibber…

…or is it just a port of Adium theme ‘Renkoo’, what do you think?

Either way UI consistency across the default applications equals layout is the best to me.
