Ubuntu NextG is the Ubuntu Next Generation GTK theme!
A modest attempt at making a new default Ubuntu theme. While preserving the basic 'ubuntu-colors' I tried to make a theme that is more soothing to the eyes, and creates a nice and calm work-environment.
Visually I tried to incorporate a partial shadow of the ubuntu-logo within the top-window-frame. Gtk-theme and Metacity-theme work together into creating this effect.
A good Metacity theme is one that is only visually present when you need it. Therefore the metacity-buttons - or should I say 'circles'- only visually highlight when you move the cursor over them.
The menu's are all consistently with a black background. This theme goes well with a dark (black) wallpaper.
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".
