Slateman is a GTK theme meant to be an uncreative drop-in slate (blue-grey) replacement for the default Human themes in Ubuntu 8.04, for those wishing for another color option but enjoy the human style.
Based on the packages available in Ubuntu 8.04, I include three gtk-theme options (Slateman, Slateman-Clearlooks, Slateman-Murrine). Also included is a set of matching slate human style icons, backgrounds, gdm-themes, and a usplash-theme.
I've constructed these themes by color remixing the default files with Perl scripts. So I could in principle extend this batch of files to include other system files or other colors should there be interest in such things.
Based on the Hardy packages:
- human-icon-theme v0.28
- human-theme v0.18
- ubuntu-gdm-theme v0.29
- ubuntu-wallpapers v0.25
- usplash-theme-ubuntu v0.18
Recommended login background color (r,g,b) = (126,143,163)
GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment-the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system-entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things "just work".
