Union Blue by NanaBuluku Union Blue by NanaBuluku
Known issues:

Maximised window close button is terrible against the blue background.

It appears to be currently unthemeable but I'm looking into it.

Union Blue

Simple friendly gnome theme that themes the unity panel properly.

I'm taking unitary in a new direction. Ubuntu colours are cool for branding but don't really make for a flexible palette when designing a theme.

I've decided to put a gradient on the panel and colour it to give it a more traditional gnome feel.

Used unitary as a template which used elementary gtk and metacity as a template.

Hi, is there a way to make this work with ubuntu 13.04? I can't get it to show up when I try to choose my theme, even though other themes in the same directory work fine. Thanks!

Hey, sorry I haven't been on here in a while. It's the default wallpaper for the first Elementary OS "Jupiter". I believe you can download the wallpaper package from their ppa.

I love your unitary themes. Hard to find a good theme that works with unity.

Cheers! Any theme should look good once the authors include a panel.rc that the unity panel can use.

looks really good overall, but the panel is so blueeee :p

maybe a bit darker.

and the pic might look better if you enable transparency of panel in ccsm :)

great job anyway!

Cheers for the feedback! Yeah the panel IS way too blue. Also I've just found that it it matches the new ubuntu msg indicator colour for when you have mail which is a BIG problem. I wanted it to be a bright friendly theme but the blue is just too much.
