Ubuntu Unity Android skin

  • I finally got around to finishing and publishing my Ubuntu skins for Android. I created some Unity themed Beautiful Widget clock skins seen above. I created 4 skins available for download through the app. There are 2 3D Unity skins (Ambiance and Radiance) and 2 2D Unity skins (Ambiance and Radiance).

    To go with the Unity clock skins, you can also get Ubuntu weather skins to match.

    - Gnome
    - Mono Dark
    - Mono Light
    - Humanity
    - Humanity Dark
    - Humanity Light

    The final piece to my Ubuntu android skin a Unity themed LauncherPro pack. There is no specific way to publish these so I uploaded it to my dropbox. You can download the file here.

    Note: It isn’t an official icon theme pack, just a collection of icons to use on the dock. Long press an icon on the dock to change, select change icon, custom icon, then select an icon from the gallery. The icons should show up there.

    Included in this pack:

    - 2 LauncherPro Docks
    - 78 Icons
    - 6 Toggle images for Better Cut
    - 4 Wallpapers (960×854 resolution)

    Extract the zip files to the root of your SD card. You can also extract to the download/downloads folder. You will then be able to use the images with LauncherPro. As mentioned above, I included some toggle icons. You can use the Better Cut app to create wifi, gps, bluetooth, silence, airplane toggles. They are themed to resemble Ubuntu’s Notify OSD.

    Enjoy! :)

    UPDATE: I have the notification bar hidden with LauncherPro in the Droid X images above. To do that, go to Menu > Preferences > Appearance settings > and enable ‘Hide notification bar’.

    While you are in those settings, I suggest you change the highlight colors to f07746.

    On my phone I also went to Menu > Preferences > Behavior settings > and changed home key action to open/close notifications.

    I use the Cirlce Widget since the battery meter is hidden with the notification bar. You can get the Circle Widget here.

    How is this? http://i53.tinypic.com/34y42ah.png  I don’t know if I can add it to the pack.  You’ll have to put it on your sd card yourself.

    Can I request a Reddit icon?

  • http://www.joesteiger.com Joe Steiger

    Sure. That one will take more time. There already is a Reddit icon for Unity. I have to find out what it looks like.

    How did you get your notification bar like that?

  • http://www.joesteiger.com Joe Steiger

    The notification bar is hidden with LauncherPro in the image in my post.  Go to Menu > Preferences > Appearance settings >and enable ‘Hide notification bar’.

    While you are in those settings, I suggest you change the highlight colors to f07746.

    Go to Menu > Preferences > Behavior settings >and change home key action to open/close notifications.

    I use the Cirlce Widget to have a battery meter on my home screen: https://market.android.com/details?id=fr.depoortere.android.CircleBatteryWidget That is the only thing I miss from the notification bar.

    It looks like with 11.10 they are changing the look a bit.  I think I should wait to see what they do before I do all the work porting this theme.

    Sorry.

    You should just get LauncherPro.

    Is there lots of different/small packages for different parts of the look or is there a main/base package to download and where is it?

  • http://www.joesteiger.com Joe Steiger

    There are parts. There is no main pack.

    Would it be possible for you to make fancy widget pro skin and some kind of WidgetLocker Lockscreen slider?

    Sorry, I missed this comment.

    I don’t know how to do a lockscreen.

    I see that they have made a tutorial to make installable icon packs for LauncherPro.. Maybe, if you want to, you could port the entire Faenza pack to LauncherPro? I miss quite a few icons in those you’ve supplied.. Like a good icon for “Call” and “Messaging”.. And how can I edit what things I have where on my LauncherPro?

  • http://www.joesteiger.com Joe Steiger

    I haven’t thought of doing a pack with Faenza icons.  I was planning on making a launcherpro pack but Ubuntu is working on a new icon theme, so I am waiting on that.  Then I will try my hand at creating my first icon pack. ;)  If it goes well, I’ll do faenza too.

    why it not work in sumsung galaxy min

    Looking at the specs.  I am guessing the screen resolution is too low?  I am pretty sure Beautiful Widgets needs at least 480pixel width.
