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!

Ubuntu font 0.84

The guys from Design Canonical team have been busy these days, upgrading our desktop font to cover more alphabets, completing the Unicode sets for Hebrew, Arabic and Cyrillic. This change will arrive with Lubuntu 16.04, but we can get this updated font now, version 0.84, just downloading the package and uncompressing it in the ~/.fonts folder.

Box 0.56

mural_last

A new release for the Lubuntu default theme Box. Reaching version 0.56, a lot of bugs have been fixed. Since Wily Werewolf was released, some icons were added to fit the new apps. Changes of this revision:

  • fixed fcitx panel icon (fix for bug #1511980)
  • battery charge improvements
  • new restart / shutdown / alert icons for Unity
  • added Ubuntu slide and touch features
  • discontinued dark panel version

The decision of removing the dark panel support was voted in the Artwork Team, but this project will move it soon to Gnome-Look and freed to the community (for now it’s still available in Lubuntu Wily Werewolf).You can download the latest version 0.56 at the downloads page and use it with your Lubuntu OS or any other Linux distro.
