Ubuntu

troy-at-kde.livejournal: Now yesterday I decided that in order to get some of the KDE 4 build deps up to date, I would go through the Feisty->Gutsy update using the official instructions posted on their website (which I conveniently found via the /topic in #kubuntu). The actual upgrade process seemed to go smoothly, and it removed some old packages and programs that I never used anyway. All is well until I reboot.

  • Minwaita: A Compact Version of Theme Adwaita for Gnome Desktop
    As you may already know that Ubuntu is switching back to Gnome, this is the transition time for Ubuntu to switch back.

This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions. This theme was released back in November, 2016 and still in continuous development that means if you find any problem or bug in the theme then report it to get it fixed in the next update.
