Great things about this 1.0 compared to previous betas:
- Colors are embedded in the image itself
- Full set of buttons and widgets (well... almost)
- User customizable postinst and prerm
- You can make a black theme
While testing the 'blackness', I also made a NuvoBlack theme as pictured above.
For part two, I give you keyboards from theme NuvoPearl:
And don't worry, the theme template hasn't become any bigger or more complicated than in previous versions. I also included both NuvoPearl and NuvoBlack as template images, so that you can easily modify them to make your own theme. Seriously, making a theme takes fifteen minutes if you use those templates as a basis.
Download theme maker and NuvoBlack /NuvoPearl from here: Garage
Please Note that installing NuvoBlack / Pearl will change some of your icons as well. They won't change until you reboot. Uninstalling theme will put back the original icons.
Lastly, to try to get more people to create exciting themes, I put together a two minute tutorial to theming and uploaded it to youtube. Have a look, it's really simple. Sorry for not narrating the tutorial. I hope it's self explanatory even without it.
Oh, and in case anyone of you needs to take screenshots on your N800, the only screenshot utility I found that works is gnuites:
Bear in mind that you have to go to control panel to add the applet to your toolbar.
