Open The Cosmic Gate: A beautiful theme gets a beautiful name

A beautiful theme gets a beautiful name Communitheme has been a community effort from the start with an overwhelming amount of feedback from an even larger community. Surprisingly, the still ongoing discussion thread of more than 1500 messages hasn’t (yet?) broken discourse! However, the effort to refresh the look and feel of Ubuntu has gone way beyond just a theme. From the start, Sam Hewitt’s beautiful Suru icons were included and over time, the effort brought new system sounds and new cursors under its wing.

Welcome To The (Ubuntu) Bionic Age: A new ubuntu default theme, call for participation!

Call for participation: an ubuntu default theme lead by the community? As part of our Unity 7 to GNOME Shell transition in 17.10, we had last August a Fit and Finish Sprint at the London office to get the Shell feeling more like Ubuntu and we added some tweaks to our default GTK theme. The outcome can be seen in the following posts: https://didrocks.fr/2017/08/25/ubuntu-gnome-shell-in-artful-day-8 https://didrocks.fr/2017/09/04/ubuntu-gnome-shell-in-artful-day-9 https://didrocks.fr/2017/10/16/ubuntu-gnome-shell-in-artful-day-15 Some more refinements came in afterward and finale 17.
