A few months ago I posted a theme called Milieu Bird which was intended for Ubuntu. I’ve recently made the switch to Elementary OS: Luna on my netbook and wanted to carry over a similar desktop look and feel. After a few small tweaks I’ve now been able to update Milieu Bird to be elementary-friendly.
This posts details a theme intended for use on Ubuntu 13.04. The theme uses many elements of the Elegant Bird, a theme previously intended for xfce built on Elegant Brit and Greybird. The result is a clear theme with square windows and tidy title buttons for a simple yet stylish appearance.
One of my favourite GTK themes of all time was Elegant Cold Blue, a spin-off of Elegant Brit. I’ve decided to have a crack at porting it to Xubuntu 12.10. Along the way I’ve been able to make a few tweaks to the theme to make it more usable in xfce by utilising elements of Xubuntu’s default theme: Greybird. For a similar theme on Ubuntu checkout Elegant-Ambiance or Milieu Bird.
