Nearly everyone loves Ubuntu (myself included), but I have a disdain for the default appearance. I’ve put together a theme based on Plastik, Crystal Clear, ish, and artwork from tri5tian. I’ve made some of my own modifications and rolled it all together in a couple of convenient DEB files. If you don’t want to use the DEB files to install it you may just download a tarball that you can unpack use as you wish.
In total there is an icon set, a gtk theme, a metacity theme, a GDM, a splash screen, a background image, and a skin for Beep Media Player.
