As most of you know ive been working on theming emesene2...

At the start i was hoping on on creating at-least 6 or 7 themes that (and i did) but i soon realized that some of the themes wouldn't work with most professional gtk themes, to fix this issue i asked the devs to implement panel theming this threw up more issues which are now fixed.

So with that fixed i got back to theming i scrapped all my original ideas and stuck with implementing the most common icon themes whilst making the default theme usable.

here are the current included themes -

*Ambiance & Radiance

Ambiance and radiance has soon the most updates, at first everything was mono (window & panel) but now they use the default color icons whilst keeping the panel mono.

Elementary & faenza was included as they are currently the most popular gtk themes and it seemed logical to include them by default instead of hunting around for them.

Default theme still used old pidgin styled icons until a few weeks back when i decided they needed updating allot.. I then included these icons in Ambiance & Radiance as they were lacking color.

For all you msn users emesene2 will still include the msn styled icons in the name of Retro.

Emesene2 Deviant art group will be opened shortly for you designers, you'll be able to create and share:

* Conversation Themes (Adium Themes)
* Image Themes
* Sound Schemes
* Theme Mockups
* Emoticons

PS: if you have any experience with python emesene2 are looking for developers, we use github so its simple and easy to use.

Please resize "ubuntu gloss" to 2560, add the Ubuntustudio logo and submit it to the Ubuntustudio wallpaper contest!…

Hi, I want to ask you if the elementary operating system, used by members of the elementary-project ( could use your burg theme as default for elementary 0.1.7 and maybe upcoming releases.
For contacting with me, or the team you can join our channel in IRC : channel: #elementary, in .
I also have questions to you, how we can implement our operating system, and the icons of it into burg, so burg detects it as an operating system and not ubuntu.
