Ubuntu NextG 3.0 by macwanderer Ubuntu NextG 3.0 by macwanderer
Ubuntu Next Generation version 3.0

A modest attempt at making a new default ubuntu theme. While preserving the basic 'ubuntu-colors' I tried to make a theme that is more soothing to the eyes, and creates a nice and calm work-environment.

Visually I tried to incorporate a partial shadow of the ubuntu-logo within the top-window-frame. Gtk-theme and Metacity-theme work together into creating this effect.

A good metacity theme is one that is only visually present when you need it. Therefore the metacity-buttons - or should I say 'circles'- only visually highlight when you move the cursor over them.

The menu's are all consistently with a black background.
This theme goes well with a dark (black) wallpaper.

About the screenshots:
A kean themer will have noticed that I have created a heavily modified version of the 'Slickness'-theme made by Th3Rob
Icon-theme: Oxygen-Refit2 - Orange Version
Wallpaper: a modified version of 'distro balls' by Jackfox05. This modified version is in the download-package.
The font I use is: HandelGotDlig, which you will also find in the downloadfile with install-instructions.

Installing:
Within the download-file you can find the 'installation instructions' document. There's a special file included that modifies the fontcolor of the panel to white, in case you have a black font in the panel. Just drag and drop this ".gtkrc-2.0" file in your home folder, logout and login again and it should be changed to white.

Please comment or make suggestions

Changelog:

Adapted the black-menubutton of the panel to get a uniform look when using a top-panel. Thanks Mariux for the suggestion !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Included an excellent Emerald theme made by Mariux especially for this theme !

If you have installed version 1.0 of this theme then remove it first before installing version 2.0
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Changed the iconsize of the main-menu-items to 24x24.
De-install previous versions before installing version 3.0 ! And log-out and log-in again afterwards

Beautiful!!! The best theme I have seen. Everything looks and functions perfectly. It's hard to get themes that everything is perfect (ie input fields too dark or ballons unreadable etc) but none of that here. I do have one small problem though, I followed your instructions concerning the white font, But I can't get it to turn white.

Any suggestions?

P.S. Do you have any other themes?

This set of themes is AWESOME!!!

Even though it is a dark theme, it is extremely usable which is something most dark themes lack these days.

This would definitely make a good default Ubuntu theme. I'm just not sure if everyone would like a dark interface that this set of themes produces, but I sure do! =D
