Debian Ciel -- My Theme Proposal for Squeeze

Postby canci » 2010-09-16 22:09

We have a winner: SpaceFun won the theme contest. :)
Again, sorry for the mix up before. Unlike stated earlier,
not all the contestants will be available in the repositories,
but rather only the winner, SpaceFun, then the legacy themes
More Blue and More Blue Orbit, as well as Nightly.

http://lists.debian.org/debian-desktop/ ... 00077.html

You can now do the following in Debian Squeeze to get the themes:


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install desktop-base


Should you not be happy with the theme, this forum or Google have answers
on how to change / remove it.


All the proposals listed here:

* Nightly: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/Themes/Nightly
* SpaceFun: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/Themes/SpaceFun
* Ciel: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/Themes/debian-ciel (with a
discreet variant)
* Lisp Machine: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/Themes/lisp-machine
(with multiple colors)


Debian Ciel 2.2

Here is my theme proposal for Squeeze. It is public domain and can be modified freely.
I have abandoned work on this theme as of 11th November 2010 due to the following
reasons. I will of course create other themes in the future.

News

2.2. - 2010.10.23
* Final commit -- from now on bug fixes only
* The theme now has 2 versions -- one with the pinkish Debian branding (Debian Ciel)
and another with a dark gray one (Debian Ciel Discreet).
* Added a Debian Ciel Tango Icon Theme, which is basically Tango with the start-here icon
changed from those blue shoes to a Debian icon.
* All theme proposals were reverted to the default Debian settings due to stability concerns.
These are basically Clearlooks for everything GTK (not sure about Xfce?). They are fine for
the skin colour-wise. The icon theme is still debated and I am also hoping we will see
the lxde logout splash.

2.1 - 2010.10.14
* Debian Ciel got a bit of lipstick ;) Reintroducing the rather pinkish Debian logo by popular request.
Thanks to Yves and all others for the suggestion!
* overhauled the wallpaper and other backgrounds; slightly more gradients
* SLiM theme!
* new and better KDM theme!
* GDM / KDM backgrounds now without disturbing logo (thanks to secipolla)
* new pinkish Debian icon
* added Xfce theming proposal

2.0 - 2010.10.13
* a new, brighter and happier version with clouds :)
* now with KDM and KSplash theme
* wallpaper, GDM and grub background are now the same image
* added dark grey Debian menu icon
* changed GTK theme proposal to MurrinaAquaish
* changed Metacity theme proposal to Murrina Rounded
* changed GTK icon theme proposal to Tango
* added LXDE theme proposals (Openbox Clearlooks and GTK as above); also made an LXDE logout splash

1.2. - 2010.09.17
* changed Gnome theme proposal to MurrinaBlu (GTK) and Unity (Metacity) -- screenshots are added.
* changed notification proposal to notify-osd instead of the classic Gnome one.
* added warning about missing SLiM theme.

1.1. - 2010.09.17
* added another classic grub2 background with more contrast

1.0. - 2010.09.16
* first draft


TODO

* Boot splash code (Splashy, Usplash, Plymouth - I can't code any of those, although I might try playing with Plymouth)
* Packaging, testing.

Is it too little contrast? I've been thinking about another version with more contrast.

Yes. Just my personal opinion and only the first image.

Thank you for your feedback!

I'll do another classic grub2 with more contrast and also a SLiM theme.

If any of you know how to make boot splash screen scripts, kdm themes and such, you're welcome to contribute on the wiki.

I've added another grub2 with much more contrast and sort of like the Etch wallpapers. :)

The images are very nice, canci.
The theming maybe could get some improvement. I know you used existant icon and GTK themes but the blue could be less contrastant, both in the icons and in the titlebar.
I'm not a specialist on this but I recall that there are some apps/scripts now that change the main colour of the icon theme (if I find it I post here).

For the SLiM theme you basically need the backgroud, the panel image and the slim.theme file to set the layout. Maybe you could use a panel image like that GSplash image you posted, adjusting widthxheight and transparency, keeping maybe that Debian icon/title combo adjusting its size and position to fit the layout._EDIT- sorry, I downloaded it and saw you already made a SLiM panel. I'll examine the contents now.

If I knew how to do this (I know it must be simple in GIMP) I would do it :wink:
