Unified Box theme

Unified means that Box is getting more complete and global. Now we included full support for Unity and Metacity. Now you can use it with Ubuntu and everything will work fine. Look how the Unity controls look on maximixed windows over the panel:

You can download Box icons and Box theme at the Artwork section. The current version is 0.42+bzr384, which means you should our PPA to keep it uptodate, because I’m planning to improve it a lot more.

The only negative part is that Unity-Tweak-tool or Gnome-Tweak-Tool “don’t see” the theme, you need to use Ubuntu-Tweak. Instructions on a terminal for everythng:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:lubuntu-art/daily
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y ubuntu-tweak lubuntu-artwork

And that’s all for this moment. Feedback apreciated.

Customize your clock

The clock of your panel is a very handy and customizable tool. You can
make it show whatever you want with a few single steps, using codes

This how this new article of our Tips’n’Tricks collection starts. Have a look!

And remember, if you have another tip or advice, and want it published at Lubuntu Blog, don’t hesitate and send it.
