    Arrow I hope a new theme will be developed finally

    Please, make something new... At least for 9.04
    I am sure there are a lots of people out there, who can help too.

    Make it finally a 21st century OS

    And here is one wallpaper for the Ubuntu users, made by myself. Nothing special, just a 20 mins work. Hope you like it

    I'd rather have dust 0.2 installed by default instead of the many screen savers.

    While there are about 8 billion threads about new themes already, you should put this up on gnome-look and ubuntu-art! I don't generally like branded wallpaper but the background texture is fun

    Well, sorry about creating a new thread about it... I was hoping to create a thread with some suggestions in it.

    About the texture... Well it should look like a paper with some effects i added to it

    Nothing special at all... And I have no idea how to submit it to Ubuntu Art

    And I can make one without the logo for you if you want

    There will not be a new theme for 9.04, nor 9.10 nor ever.

    You may hear that Ubuntu will get a new theme, and those massive reconstructing of GNOME, but I assure you none of that will happen.
    If the only reason you think your software is better is because it's FOSS, you need to write better software

    I beg to differ, upstream is already working on GTK3 and it does involve a lot of theming changes which should give themers previously unimaginable power. There are also changes going on to alter the way GNOME looks and feels for GNOME3, you can check the gnome-shell.

    http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell
    http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-devel-list
    http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-d.../msg00037.html

    Ubuntu might very well have woefully little to do with this work but that does not mean it doesn't happen.

    okay enough trooll feeding for now.

    As I said, I'm aware of all that, but I'll believe it when I see it.

    so the code posted for both the gnome shell and the libcss library somehow.. averted your keen eyes. There is plenty of code for all of these things but they are not ready for deployment yet, never the less it's there, believe it.
