Elementary Ubuntu Mashup by spiceofdesign Elementary Ubuntu Mashup by spiceofdesign
This was just a quick mashup between Elementary OS and Ubuntu Unity.

The top panel is stolen from a ~DanRabbit design as well as the panel icons.

The application icons are part of the Tap set, but they seemed to fit more with the design.

The wallpaper is a picture my brother took that I edited to give it a retro look.

Made in Inkscape 0.48

Just wanted to let you know it is relatively easy to remove the boxes on the icons. Got bored one evening so tried to see how close I could hack unity to look like this =)

Out of interest, how do you remove the boxes?

The box is just a .png file in /usr/share/unity/4. Can't remember exactly what file but I think it's launcher_icon_back_54.png or launcher_icon_edge_54.png. I just replaced it with an empty png. I'm using Gnome Shell at the moment anyway because I couldn't stand the unity workflow =P

Now that looks GREAT :-) I'm sorry for prying, but can I ask if you followed a turoial or something? I am running "Xubuntu" and have been rolling through the list of themes and borders and can't seem to settle on one I like :-( Then I found yours!! but I don't have those themes in Xubuntu. Can you link where you got them from? And I'd really like to know how you got the dock bars to match up perfectly like that. Looks really awesome :-)

This looks very bright, clean and friendly. Really hope Unity will be themeable in the [near] future!

It was one of the reasons I switched, because there was basically no way to change it.

Wow this is incredible. there are some problems though: 11.10 doesn't have the dash button on the panel anymore (which I very much liked it there btw). Canonical just HAD to ruthlessly make it a docked icon :rage:

secondly, Canonical is pretty much flipping off anyone who wants better theme support (like window buttons).

On the bright side, they've stated that the panel and dock are no longer dependent on each other, therefore you can mod/make extensions without completely breaking the code.

But back to the theme, it's stunning, especially with the Tap icons you're making :D good luck on them!

The movement of the dash button annoyed me since the screen real estate is still taken up, and the one they put in the dock just looks awful.

I know exactly what you mean. If I were canonical, I'd fire whoever is responsible for it. The least they can do is give you an option to put it back where it belongs.

No. Everything has to be good from beginning, so there is consistency across all unity desktops. No options/ customization! Bring dash button back to corner where it belongs for all!

Please tell me you're being sarcastic about the "No options/ customization!" part..

Me too. I still think Canonical making Unity box all the icons, especially those which are already square is just annoying.

do you know of any way to ditch the box in unity?

this looks great, I could switch from plank to unity if I could make it look like this.

No, I have looked around a bit, but I haven't found a solution yet. Really that is one of the main reasons it was unpopular to begin with; after years of being able to customise every little thing Ubuntu make it very difficult for you to change a single thing about unity.

there must be a way to customize it.

now the ubuntu logo has a sort of square/sort of rounded background. very ugly. we're heading to windows-glass-land.

Yes, the icon display is really annoying.
