View Full Version : [ubuntu] Does Ubuntu have an official User Interface style guide?

Apple has a User Interface style guide book thing and I was wondering if such a thing existed for Ubuntu as well. If so where does it live? Would this guide be specific to the desktop environment or to Ubuntu in general.

Not sure if this is what your looking for but took about 3 seconds on Google to find.

Ubuntu's Desktop Environment is Gnome. And gnome has UISG/HIG.

GNOME's Human Interface Guidelines (http://library.gnome.org/devel/hig-book/stable/)

Kubuntu's Desktop environment, KDE:

You are welcome Michael.
