It is time to give a modern and professional look to our desktop! The new theme makes more clever use of orange (not over-use it) and is mainly color-neutral. It is designed for Ubuntu in mind but can be used in other distros that may bear warm colors.

[size=3]Installation: (requires pixbuf theme engine)[/size]
Very simple. Just double click the file newwave-(xxx).gtp where (xxx) is the version number e.g. 050. Note that if you have previous version of the theme in your home folder you need to remove it first. You may need to log out then log in to make all changes appear (e.g. handlers, lines). For more information on how to fix Firefox's menubar text and how to use the theme in root programs see the README file.

The package also contains:
- New Wave Configurator (GUI),
- Emerald themes,
- Compiz-fusion settings,
- Second theme with dark menus,
- Firefox skin,
- Some metacity tweaks.
- Time applet tips.
Theme for xfwm4 (Xubuntu) can be downloaded in the Download section of this page.

Thank You!

P.S. It is the same version ;) unless Canonical haven't modified something. What do you think is different.

Aha, sorry. I just meant that before upgrading to Jaunty, I still had an older version installed. Upgrading made me notice the new version. :)

Hey I absolutely love this theme.

I was thinking that I might launch this small scale computer building/selling adventure and I wanted to know if I could somehow obtain permission to pre-install this theme on the computers I build, it would most likely be one of maybe five or six max themes provided. It or this one other that is very similar would most likely end up being the default theme. I would provide what ever attribution you asked.

Hey Dilomo, i use new wave since the initial versions, and i really like. But like others said, i prefer the old positions of scrollbar arrows. Well, that's just a tip. There are any plans for a 0.9 version ? Congratulations for the great job.

I'm planing a service pack to this version - will be 0.8.1 or smth like that. It will fix some bugs and finally fix the problem of dark menutext in FF OO but don't expect it soon because I'm busy till august.

P.S. For the arrows you could join the discussion here:

I think you have this error in your theme:

Test it with empathy (lastest version).

 Arch Versions?

Is there any way you could make a whole set dedicated to Arch linux, in a nice blue color instead of Ubuntu's orange?

Or tell me how to do it. I'm a horrible artist, but given enough time I could learn to make one and then upload the whole set here.

Check this out:

You could start by that theme or take my latest version and recolor all images.
