Debian Ciel 1.2

Author: Amir Dizdarević

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:

Last update: 17th Sep 2010

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

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:

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.

Debian Installer

A nice installer banner

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?
