Today saw Ubuntu’s first “Artwork Drop” for Karmic Koala.
Despite there being no official ‘artwork’ released from Ubuntu’s Design team as of yet, the community side of the artwork submission has been quite prolific. Of note are the four new themes and two new icon sets.
Please not that it’s still early in the day and not all packages will have been uploaded as of yet, so this post may be updated with more information!
In Karmic four new themes form part of the ‘community-themes’ package.
‘Community-themes’ packages some of the more popular community created themes into a bundle, but will any of them make it to inclusion in the actual release of Karmic as ‘Dust’ and ‘New Wave’ managed to in April?
“A new refreshing hybrid theme with deep rich brown color with a modern appeal while retaining usability.”
‘Humanity’ is a spin off of the incredible popular ‘Elementary’ icon set.
Xubuntu already uses a spin off of ‘Elementary’ called ‘Gnome-Colours’, so perhaps Ubuntu is due to follow suit with it’s own ‘Human’ style set…
‘Breathe’ is a KDE-Oxygen spin off designed to “refresh” Ubuntu’s stock Human-tango theme.
“Oxygen is a good, comprehensive and modern icon set. It doesn’t have overly heavy outlines like Tango, but for our needs, it lacks the “Human-touch”. So we will use it as a starting point.”
