Description:

Dust is a concept for a new, refreshing look for Ubuntu. The idea was to take the defining aesthetic elements of Ubuntu and remix it into something clean, modern, functional, and unique.

It's a new take on the Ubuntu aesthetic using a dark palette and subtle colors.

Look for the parameter "gtk-icon-sizes" in gtkrc and change the value for "panel-menu" to "16,16". They're generally put at the top of the file.

Hi, your theme is very very nice. Thank You!

I have few suggestions...

The panel is to dark and flat. You can’t clearly see what’s on it. I guess it should be brighter like the tabs’ color in firefox. And the file manager too, the white background is too striking in the eyes. It should be shaded a little bit.

Is there a way to bold out the font of the menu bar(Applications Places System)?

Again thank you. I hope you fine tune it further...

Another suggestion..:)

-the widget/gui except the toolbars is too blunt, IMO. you should sharpen it a little bit and make it shinier.

-the progress bar also, doesn't compliment the entire theme. a more stylish one would be great..

Thank You for this theme!

This theme is excellent...slick and very usable. It's the first dark theme I have been able to put to work full-time on my rig. Great work!

Hi,
I love this theme. Finally we have a very nice and professional looking theme thas is not a copy of Mac OS X...
Well done!
I'm just a little bit disappointed that Ubuntu has not included it by default in the new release 8.10...

BTW, I only have a problem: I've installe d it and all the other variants that you can get from the site, however, even trying all variants installed, I can't get the same scroll bars as shown in the preview image above. Can anyone help me please?
Thanks in advance!

I'm shocked at how low the score of this theme is. As a deskmoder myself, I tell you this is VERY well done, very professional looking, and there's a great concept behind making this suitable for an Ubuntu theme. Even if this is not adopted by default, this theme should exist by itself.

I completely agree, I even had to register on the site (which I have lurked on for quite a while) just to say exactly that, based on years of various theming: this theme is awesome!!
It is my de facto standard theme both at home and at work now.
Thanks. :)

What do you mean, guys? It's score is pretty high compared to the other themes here :) Check out the highest-rated under GTK2.x.

Hehe, right you are, the score isn't "bad", however when I voted for it there were a bunch of themes with the same score, barely separating it from quite a few other themes that aren't, in my mind, as good (by quite a distance in some cases). Now there is a small gap to the "other" themes. I think it should be bigger. :D
