Again, some changes in the GTK libraries made our theme looking wrong. This is a fix applied to GK3 apps with list boxes being greyed out making them totally unreadable (bug #1464349). See the differences before and after:
Finally, and thanks to Xubuntu guys, the notifications in the Lubuntu desktop will look properly. This is an old bug (see #1362555), affecting multiple themes, crossing and assigning incorrect values to some GTK widgets. But now they’re fixed. If you want to fix it in your system, you must add the Lubuntu Artwork PPA to your system (instructions here). This is how it looks now:
Since the arrival of Gnome3 and its Client Side Decorations widgets, some GTK3 apps look weird. That’s why we’ve had another re-merge with Light Themes and adding some specific Lubuntu fixes. These includes Geary full (theme and icons) support, CSD menus, CSD gradients, borders and miscellaneous colours.
New version that starts a new challenge for Box: supporting not only more environments, but known apps too. There’re a lot uncovered applications that need their own icons existing in our theme. Thanks to Đurađ Radojičić, the Lubuntu Artwork Team is getting now a reinforcement to make it possible.
Preparing the forthcoming Lubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet release, the Box theme has been updated and re-merged with Ubuntu’s Light Theme to the use last GTK features, like the new HeaderBars used in Gnome native apps. Changes include a lot of bug fixes, adjustments in colour definitions, modified headerbars and toolbars, improved paddings and distances, improved 3rd party apps support (like Nautilus, Maps or Music), etc.
If you want to use Box theme in your distro just download it from the Artwork page.
Just a wallpaper for celebrating both the Christmas season and the birth of our mascot Lenny. Enjoy this days and greetings from the Lubuntu Team!
It’s been a while since last post, but no, we’re not dead, just busy preparing everything for 15.04 and it’s new features. Now the icon theme part has been updated since Utopic Unicorn release with a few modifications (see the changelog here) improving integration with LXQt, and we’ll keep working on it.
And remember you can use it with any Linux distro! Download it while it’s hot.
