Ciel means sky in French, and while my theme has little to do with skies, it is nevertheless very light on the eye.
Images for both 4:3, as well as 16:9 are provided. Screenshots will show the 16:9 version.
The theme is public domain, so do with it whatever you want. I would kindly ask anyone to contribute, as coding
boot splash and similar endeavours are not my kind of thing. Thank you!

Sorry to host it on Megaupload, but I have no idea how to use svn.
Feel free to redistribute and repackage it!

substitute the standard Gnome notification-daemon for notify-osd. They are all available in vanilla Debian

Debian Ciel 1.2

Author: Amir Dizdarević and whoever else joins...

Ciel means sky in French, and while my theme has little to do with skies, it is nevertheless very light on the eye. Images for both 4:3, as well as 16:9 are provided. Screenshots will show the 16:9 version. The theme is public domain, so do with it whatever you want. I would kindly ask anyone to contribute, as coding boot splash and similar endeavours are not my kind of thing. Thank you! Get the archive from here:

The file names and folders should be self-explanatory.

News

1.2. - 2010.09.17

  • changed Gnome theme proposal to ?MurrinaBlu (GTK) and Unity (Metacity) -- screenshots are added.

  • changed notification proposal to notify-osd instead of the classic Gnome one.
  • added warning about missing SLiM theme.

1.1. - 2010.09.17

  • added another classic grub2 background with more contrast

1.0. - 2010.09.16

  • first draft

grub2 Screen

Included are a simple background for the classic Grub experience, as it is now in Debian:

[ATTACH]

I made an alternative classic background for those of you who don't like blurry images:

[ATTACH]

The other one is a slick background for those of you who want to tinker and achieve a more modern look:

[ATTACH]

Here is a possible mockup:

Boot Splash

There is no bootsplash/plymouth/usplash/splashy code, but feel free to make it from the images provided:

[ATTACH]

The idea is for the logo to "pulsate" (this could be achieved by making an animation with the dark shadow growing/retreating).

gdm3 Background

A simple, light background for gdm3. I don't think we should use the legacy gdm anymore.

[ATTACH]

SLiM Theme

Coming soon... I will make an entire SLiM theme. The svg provided in the archive is just a mockup!

GSplash (KSplash?)

A simple splash image for Gnome/KDE. As I only use Openbox, I have no idea how this works, so feel free to tinker.

[ATTACH]

Wallpaper

It is almost the same as the gdm background, except for the logo in the middle. I have provided various sizes and ratios.

Theming

I've found that ?MurrinaBlu is a suiting GTK theme and the Unity Metacity theme accompanies it quite nicely. Gnome-brave is a good icon theme. The mouse cursor is the standard dmz white. I further think that we should substitute the standard Gnome notification-daemon for notify-osd. They are all available in vanilla Debian with these dependencies:

  • gnome-themes-extras
  • murrine-themes
  • gnome-brave-icon-theme
  • dmz-cursor-theme
  • notify-osd The panels are using the system theme again. Screenshots:

CD Cover

This one I don't like particularly, but you can change it anyway you want.

[ATTACH]

Debian Installer

A nice installer banner

[ATTACH]

TODO

  • SLiM Theme
  • KDM Theme (anyone?)
  • GSplash (is it just an image or also code? Can anyone help?)
  • KSplash (OK, this one definitely has code. Anyone?)
  • Boot splash code (Splashy, Usplash, Plymouth - I can't code any of those)
  • CD sleeve
  • move to SVN?
