    Should k/X/ubuntu have the same theme?

    Do you think that Ububtu / Kubutu / xubuntu should have the same theme?
    (regardless of which one you prefer).

    No because I use Kubuntu and don't like brown . I don't place much strength behind my opinion though because it takes what a couple of seconds to change?

    Just because you all get that ugly brown theme in gnome does not mean us KDE users should have to suffer also.

    the unified theme will not necessarily be Human. it can be platik or lipstik, or whatever kubuntu uses.

    As long is I can keep my beautiful brown desktop, I don't care.

    Re: Should k/X/ubuntu have the same theme?

    I'd love to see unified theming. I use QtCurve for that exact reason. I say, unified themes with different color schemes. From there, leave it up to the user if they wish to focus solely on gnome themes, kde themes or xfce themes. But, out of the I think Ubuntu would do well to present a coherent "one desktop".

    It would be great if there was a theming package of some sort that would write out icon, font, cursor and color data to the respective .rc files. I know Kcontrol can do this under KDE but, I'm thinking in terms of something more neutral.

    No because I use Ubuntu and don't like blue.

    Re: Should k/X/ubuntu have the same theme?

    It would be awesome to have default Qt, GTK 1 & 2, Tk and Wine themes that blend well with eachother. So if a new user mixes apps from different widget sets it still blends well and looks good.

    I switch themes once a week so the defaults don't matter for me though.

    It could have three theme(orange,blue,dark) and it will ask you to choose one on installation...
    So you can use k/x/u/buntu without worrying about the color.

    I like Xubuntu because it's blue.
