Description:

This theme is a simple rendition of the yet-to-be-created theme 'Union' that is being headed by Ken Vermette. My theme is a merge between Union and Union Simple (Kith).

If you modify the clearlooks theme to use the colors in the second screenshot i've provided, it looks much better and is very easy on the eyes.

Hello, I really like your theme, but I am curious how to get tabs and menus like yours? Also is that Tahoma font in your menus?


thank you

Thank you.

To get the tabs looking correct you need to have the clearlooks engine installed and being used. You must also use the colors I've provided.

As for the font, I'm pretty sure it's Sans.

To the creator of this page:

You need to tell us the hex codes for those colors (in the second screenshot) or we won't know what colors exactly to choose.

Use the color picker tool to just click on the corresponding colors. If you dont have that then i'll gladly post the hex codes.

Hi, I read your commment on the Ubuntu forum. Do you think it would be possible to create a theme like this for Ken Vermette's other theme: Basic Ideals?

I'd do it myself but I'm not a wiz at creating themes :p

Great job!

If only Hardy looked this beautiful! I'd love to see the full suite come to fruition one day. Great work.

Perfect Ubuntu theme - looks amazing w/ the suggested colors for clearlooks (don't change a thing). It would be great to see this become the next default for Ubuntu.

download the clearlooks engine (and theme) and install (there should be a good tutorial out there on the net somewhere :))

To modify the colors, go to your GTK theme manager (system -> prefs -> appearance) and click customize (when you have clearlooks selected. Now go to the colors tab and click on one of the color boxes. a color wheel should show up. Under that wheel is a text feild and a button (with an eye dropper on it). click that button and click on the corresponding color on the second screenshot. (if you clicked the first color button, then click the same thing on the screenshot.) Do this with all the colors and it should look like mine!

I (just, personally) would like to see a theme like this combined with a theme like Dark ice. It would truly be beautiful!

i voted good several times, it's so smooth, thank you!
i use it with clearlooks2.20 and a bit modified colors like you have there and i love it.

with this theme the ubuntu brown comes to a new live. i am happy that the complete new look of hardy was canceled for now, because - with such a window-border - the unique brown should stay.
so...
. i'm not sure about the glow colors on the buttons. just make them darker or such.
. well, the font, i use segoe here, centered, but that's how i like it.
. and can you make a metacity?

Thank You! Verrry encouraging!

Yes, i've been thinking about changing the glows a little. I noticed that the glow on the minimize button (yellow) looks kind of like a light glow, and I'll see how it looks on all of them. I'll also darken the colors a little bit and test it out. Another idea i had for the glow is a darker brown, so i'll try that too.

I'll also look into the font, because now that i look at it, the current font isn't the most clean. I may just post a little blip about how to center the text, because personally, i like to know exactly where to look on the screen to find my window title. Thanks though.

About the metacity theme, i've tried, and havent been able to find out how to create one. I'll probably look into it some more as I really thought this theme was great, and I want to see it grow.

THANKS!!!

If you find anything that you don't like, TELL ME!!! I need negative input so that I can change the things that need changing.

So if you vote 'bad' on this theme, make sure to tell me why.

Thanks!
