Changes in Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon: Appearance in the preferences menu

Filed under: Gnome, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 4:31 am

The Gui for Preferences of Themes, Backgrounds, Fonts, Interface, is now all integrated in one : gnome-appearance-properties.

When I right-clicked an empty spot on my desktop and selected “Change Desktop Background” I saw This:

screenshot-appearance-preferences-1.pngAn all new Preferences Suite with the Background Tab opened.

A new way of setting preferences in Gnome, and with the tabs I selected and checked the possibilities of this new “Preferences Suite”.

Here are some screenshots:

screenshot-appearance-preferences.pngSystem > Preferences > Appearance.

When you select the “Customize” button you can set up:

screenshot-customize-theme.pngCustomize Controls.

screenshot-customize-theme-2.pngCustomize Window Border.

screenshot-customize-theme-3.pngCustomize your Cursor, resizing of cursor is seemless.

The other tabs of gnome-appearance-properties include:

screenshot-appearance-preferences-2.pngSet up fonts.

screenshot-appearance-preferences-4.pngSet up Desktop Effects.

Gutsy gibbon is still in development, I also saw this 🙂

  3. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10 gutsy gibbon…
    trying to change my desktop background by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting “change desktop background” I get the “appearance preferences” menu and my CPU immediately goes to 100% utilization and I can switch between the 4 desktop backgrounds BUT nothing else works i.e. Theme/Fonts/Interfaces/VisualEffects menu items are not accessible and the STYLE & COLORS buttons don’t work either???
    Is this a bug and has it been fixed???

    sites on the internet. I most certainly will highly
    recommend this website!
