Ubuntu Lucid Lynx has a new theme…

Well the official announcement was made that ubuntu 10.04 (lucid lynx) is to have a new theme, and with this comes much discussion over the colour schema. The default for many years has been an Orange & Brown blend that for some they have got fairly accustomed too, so as with most changes you have to either accept it and move on or voice opposition to the change! (the latter not being of any use IMHO)

Here is a screen shot of my desktop… (click on image for a full size view)

As most have been talking on the ubuntu forums about the window buttons being placed on the top left (Mac style) mine has remained as the normal on the top right (Windows style) now my guess is that this is due to the setting in my profile (Gconf) was set like this when the theme was installed and as such did not alter the appearance. My current install was done from the alpha2 install media, this to may have some bearing on that as well but I’m not to sure! there is a poll on ubuntu-forums (may require to login to see the poll)

As I still insist on using Pidgin, the task bar icon doesn’t match the new theme! but then I’m not too fussed about that!  😀

UPDATE: After adjusting the metacity settings in Gconf-editor, I’ve now reproduced the setting displayed in the demo images (ubuntu 10.04)
