[ubuntu-studio-devel] Shimmer and Numix

Aah, I think I misunderstood the original discussion. I thought it was
about moving to the same theme as xubuntu and tweaking some settings in
the defualt-setting package. No need to package anything.

Are we sure about this? I thought we could get numix from the
shimmer-themes source package:
At least the gtk-themes are there. But then, as I wrote before, I have
never really fiddled with themes very much.

Packaging something from scratch and getting it uploaded into either
Debian or Ubuntu (preferably Debian) is not something that will happen
very fast. Probably better to aim for 17.04.

Are you talking about this software?:
And if so, which of the packages are we after. If it is in a ppa, it
does at least have some basic packaging we can start with.

Of course I am happy to mentor Jonathan. I am very patchy with
availability, so it would be better to do it here on the list. Then
others can learn at the same time.
