A new re-merge with Ubuntu Themes has been done, providing Lubuntu of the following features to the GTK3 theme:

  • revamped Unity controls
  • improved theme file structure
  • removed unnecessary objects
  • added missing elements (e.g. translucent endings, etc)
  • modified scroll sliders (now with autohide)
  • fixed buttons curvature (overall improvements)
  • other minor bug fixes

Remember that this is only a feature and bug fix release, and only affects GTK3 part. The theme is being updated in the Artwork Daily PPA and as a standalone package. Downloads are here.

FileZilla Box theme

Box is the default Lubuntu theme, and it should cover all the system needs (icons, controls, backgrounds…) but some applications don’t follow the XDG specs for their buttons and graphics. FileZilla is a must-have app for most desktops, so here’s a theme for it. To use it go to Artwork, grab it and extract the folder to /usr/share/filezilla/resources/ folder. Then open FileZilla, at the menu Edit / Preferences and look for themes. That’s all!

Also, some fixes in the core Ubuntu theme corrected the titlebar for Unity and the toolbar “continuity effect” in all environments. Before and after:
As always, you can upgrade or get your theme from the Artwork page. If you’re a Wily Werewolf user or you added the PPA to your system, these changes will arrive soon.
