Looks like we got the clearlooks theme everyone (including myself) thought should be the new default. Looks great!

A new version of the "chocolate" wallpaper, as well. :D

You know... One thing I've always wondered. Why doesn't the Human theme automatically select the Human icons as well? I must always go into the theme details and select them. No big deal really, just curious. Is this a bug in gnome? Seems like it's been like that forever.

I don't think the default human theme was ever supposed to include the human icons, though I could be wrong. When I first installed Warty, the human icons weren't even there if I remember correctly.

Sounds about right. Didn't know that. Thanks for the info. :)

Now all we need is the ettiquette icon theme to reach final and hope they replace the ugly stock icons in nautilus etc. I also hope they use River as the new metacity theme, it is SWEET with the new human.

I never could understand why they had green folder icons for default in gnome. Gnome added the Glider theme, but never made any new icons. Those green folders look retarded with nearly every theme I've tried! Surely they could use a more neutral color that wont clash with EVERY theme? :)

I like the Edge icons for that purpose. They're white so they don't clash with anything.

'Stock Icons' in 'Icon Themes' have been broken for years, which is why they all do not change when you change icon themes, and why we've had to tediously put iconrc's in gtk themes to get the proper stock icons for a uniform look. This happened when someone had the bright idea that nautilus/gtk should control the stock icons, the thought died, and the stock icons were not restored in Icon Themes. So the default is loaded.

This did a lot of damage because now that stock icons are being restored with the new gtk dir in icon themes....
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=14260
...so many themes do not have these icons at all much less with the right names. I mean, why make stock icons if they do not work right?

So now there is no excuse for a distro to NOT release even a default Gnome Icon Theme with the blue highcolor navigation stock icons so that we don't get the green. I still to this day haven't found the location of these green stock icons despite using slocate and doing endless searching. Anyone know?

Of course for a distro, this is great because they can now make stock navigation icons and put them in their own default icon theme so that we get a nice uniform look by default
example:
Human gtk
Human Icons or Etiquette Icons
if they had stock would mean no more green!

Gnome devel have already decided the default army icons will remain for the 2.10 default.

I installed Ubuntu's Clearlooks engine pkg and was disappointed to find they didn't include a 'Human" version. I don't get that. Haven't made it yet? Takes all of 2 minutes so I can't imagine that is the case. Not going to? OK.

Because it's in ubuntu-artwork (Human)! I think the gtkrc still needs some tweaking, but I love the new colors. Still brownish, but it feels much fresher.

thx!
hmmm..missed the last 30 pkg or so update.

Well anything is an improvement over the Industrial Human. I much prefer Clearlooks-Ubuntu, and I've tried to not be bias since I created it, but... :mrgreen:

btw Spark*, the Clearlooks-Ubuntu was updated with a lighter bg [NORMAL] yesterday. Actually, it the same now as the old Industrial Human. It was too dark.

Humans titlebar is too light making the font harder to read and it doesn't match the menuitem.

The selection color is very light indeed. But I think it looks still pretty good with the Human metacity theme and it looks especially good with River. Unfortunately it does not look good at all with the new metacity theme I'm working on. :/ But it could always be darkened a tad for metacity (like I did with Clearlooks-Olive).
The menus are one of the things which IMO still need some tweaking, I changed them locally. Maybe a flat highlight will look better with it, which we'll most likely support in the next release of Clearlooks.

Fantastic stuff! I don't think my Gnome has looked better!
