Description:

Hello !

Sugar is sweet, as this theme (hopefully) !

Enough of bad joke, this theme is meant to be very clean and nice. Good for both professional and personal use I think.


It includes a dark menu version you can choose from Controls customization.


It is sensitive to color changes so you can customize it to your liking.
It comes with 5 sets of predefined colors : Blue (Sugar), Gray (SugarGrey), Green (SugarGreen), Orange (SugarOrange) and Brown (SugarUbuntu)

Sets use the great Gion Icon Theme. You can find it here : http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Gi%C3%B8n?content=36944
Ubuntu and Orange sets use the [strike]Human Icon Theme[/strike] ubuntu-mono-dark that comes with Ubuntu.

Feedbacks and bug reports appreciated !!!

Don't forget to vote if you like it.

Ok i see, I cannot reproduce the metacity bug but I think it is related to the way I draw the buttons. I will redo that part.

ShikiColors has dark menubar and DARK menuitem that is why there is no problem. My theme has dark menubar and LIGHT menuitem.

Firefox and OpenOffice take the color of the menuitem text, which is dark in my case, for the text of the menubar => dark text on dark background = unreadable.

Thank for your help.

MikeDK is right! The bug is solved by updating nvidia drivers to 180 version.

I'm enjoying so much this theme! Waiting next version to get the little detail (menubar color) solved!

Thank you MikeDK for the solution and SamSamTSfor this theme!

I think this has to do with the compiz titlebar bug, it occurs on nvidia drivers lower than version 180 i think. and its only on pixmap engines so far i can remember.

not your theme.

Kind Regards MikeDK

Hope this helps

I am using the sugarUbuntu-version and i love it. Only the buttons of the metacity could get some improvement.
thanks for making our desktops beautiful!

Hmmm... I am not sure because i am no designer. But you should not destroy it by making mac-ish buttons. They are enough of theme on gnome-look. Your theme is very elegant but the buttons of the metacity are tooooo minimalistic. how about a little glow when clicking on it? maybe something into this direction: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Intrepid/Kin_Tonic?action=AttachFile&do=view&target=Kin_Tonic-Compiz_GWD_Style-Human_Murrine.png

there is one thing too: the text over ther progressbar is black and the progressbar is darkbrown (ubuntu-version). that means the text is hardly readable. maybe the text should be brighter.

thanks for your nice theme and i wonder why it is still not top 5 in gnome-look.

Thank for the reply.

Yes the buttons are very minimalistic, it takes a lot of time to do icons without using PNG files.
I do not use PNG files, so the buttons can match the color defined by the user.
I still want to improve them, it will just take some time.

For the text hover the progressbar I will correct it, it should be white like when hovering menuitem.

Stay tuned.

Excellent theme! I love it, i think you should mention in your description that the themes colors are customizable! Looks great with grey highlights and also with the panel image from the Dust theme.

NICE WORK :)

Thanks !

I took my inspiration from many theme, Dust is one of them that is probably why the panel image fit good.

I did mention about the color customization, I will make it bold so it is more visible. It's an very important point in a theme and it is probably why I don't use Dust and made this one.

I'm interested about the color you used. If you (or anybody) send a comment with a color set maybe I will add it to the theme if I like it.
