Equinox Ubuntu Themes – Awesome!

We all love a new theme once in a while to spice up our (boring) Ubuntu desktop. Equinox is a set of two themes for Ubuntu designed by Matthieu James for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. All I can say about the themes is that they look amazing! Take a look yourself:

Equiniox comes in two themes – a light one and a dark one. The light one is called Equinox Ambient and the dark one is called Equinox Radient. Personally I prefer the light one as the dark one looks too much like the default Ubuntu Lucid theme.

To use the Equinox themes, you need to have the Equinox engine. You can download it from here.

Once you have the Equinox engine, you can then download the theme (download links: 32-bit 64-bit).

    Great! but there are only a little changes, they still look modified versions of radiance and ambiance… but still, great work!

  • As a die hard XP user who is looking for alternatives when the inevitable migration to a new operating system has to occur this aspect of Ubuntu is great news to me! I really enjoy the theming aspect of WordPress, and extending this to an operating system just means ultimate tweakability and cutomizability to the users hearts desire.

  • I tried using these themes. While they are really good looking. They lack ONE functionality. It's not something major to be troubled with, but I like the little thing Ubuntu team did: you can drag windows by clicking on menu bar.

    Basically it's not something revolutionary but it does give you bigger area for dragging windows and therefore (according to Fits law) greater usability.

    I especially liked Equinox Light, great choice of colors. I only wish they made that theme with buttons on the left side. Add to that ability to drag windows using menu bar and am on it.
