A lot of office and coding support was added, as well as new and improved app icons. And it grows and grows. All Lubuntu users will get their update. This post is for those who can’t wait.

Box icon theme

The new Box icon theme is (almost) finished, already pushed up onto Launchpad for being merged with *buntu repos. So, if you’re a lucky person because you installed Lubuntu 😀 then a simple update will change the icons to the new ones soon. But if you don’t like them don’t worry, the original Elementarized is still there.

This was an extremely hard work. Every icon is being retouched pixel by pixel so you c an get a nice interface and you’ll be comfortable with your desktop. I’d like to dedicate this theme to my “mentor” and inspiration icon guy, Jakub “Jimmac” Steiner, and of course, Dan Rabitt, the creator of Elementary, both obligatory references in the interface design scene. Oh, and to all the Lubuntu crew, specially the one who usually saves my life designing with me, Alexander Andjelkovich, another member of the Lubuntu Artwork Team.

New Lubuntu icon theme

A new icon theme is going to land soon: Lubuntu Box. At this moment only a few icons and the design guide are being developed to create the main look line. Of course, the icon theme will (and always) be free, released under GPL license, and it will fit another desktop environments, such as Gnome3 or Unity. Stay tuned!

It was necessary, unifying visual configuration of the environment in one application. So, here it is. LxAppearance can now change, at once, details such as icons, controls, colours, mouse cursors and window decoration. It only lacks the ability to change the desktop wallpaper. Better for novices and those who don’t like complicated things. It will be available in the repo soon.
