  Looks nice to me. And I wouldn't call it pink, it looks more like
purple... ;)

  Wow, I see an explossion about colour issue. Please, check the theme wiki
 and see the options. I've made a few wallpapers for matching the blue
 colours. And I must be clear, I've received from Canonical the colour
 specifications about usage, logos, trademarks and Pantone(tm) references.
 That's why Xubuntu and Kubuntu (and official derivatives, as we want to
 be) are blue. Anyway, look at this shot:



 Is the purple / pink background with dark panel. As you can see there're a
 lot of combinations, but remaining theme specs. I'll made a poll to request
 your preferences about GUI details.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] colours

2010-02-18 Thread Sylkis
wow. I won't comment cause I don't want to potentially offend anyone, it
just doesn't apply to me at all. IMO there is nothing that connects
lighweight software and saving enviroment, the usage of resources doesn't
convince me at all, and such way of thinking associates me badly.
let's just put away the philosophy argument, please.
still, the first screenshot was a nice suprise, possible way to go with
green, I wouldn't complain if lubuntu eventually looked like that, while the
second didn't appeal to me (the grey taskbar and dirty titlebar were ugly,
icons were in some different not matching colour, etc).


2010/2/18 Jo Gerb jo.ge.s...@googlemail.com

 its just that lubuntuusers wont have to buy a new computer, they can still
 use their old one (good for our planet). Lubuntu needs less ressources than
 other distributions. lxde is leightweight, and i dont know, but i associate
 that with green. like a flower or a tree that can grow on a little piece of
 earth with some water and some light not needing much more, lubuntu will be
 usable on (almost) every hardware.

 2010/2/18 Sylkis syl...@gmail.com

 what does green have to filosophy of either ubuntu or LXDE? and why purple
 doesn't?
 but I even like the screenshots, even though it resembles openSUSE, which
 associates me badly. the green used there is not so dirty as I was almost
 sure it would be, and problably it is why I have ben so plesantly suprised
 :) but still i'd use a darker and more pure colour for titlebar of second
 screen.

 2010/2/18 jo franz jo.ge.s...@googlemail.com

 hm, ok, purple is a trendcolour. thats right, its in (even if some
 magazines say that grey is the new purple), but it will become out again.
 maybe one year, maybe three, but same as neon-colours: totally cool now (and
 in the 80ies), but forgotten and ugly in some years.
 Our logo (and thats were i want the colourchange, even if the ubuntu logo
 is yellow and orange and brown, many parts of the standard theme are grey)
 should have a colour thats always ok, like a evergreen . purple has nothing
 to do with the philosophy of lxde or lubuntu. green has.  i changed your
 screenshot to green (just for comparison) and made some on my own.

 i made the files brown, a purple/blue/green wallpaper and logo doesn't
 meen that every little symbol has to have that colour.
 best regards, jo.

Yes, couldn't we put  bunch of options up on the wiki or something and

Seems the most democratic way of doing things to me.

also). Have a look:
