Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We're a little late, but Real Life got in the way, so here we finally are. Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today that Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop Edition has been released. This version focusses on improvements in cloud computing on the server using Eucalyptus, further improvements in boot speed, as well as development on Netbook Remix. The related KDE, Xfce, and other variants have been released as well. Update by ELQ: Just a quick note to say that one of my Creative Commons videos was selected to be part of Ubuntu's Free Culture Showcase package that comes by default with the new Ubuntu version!

A few things.

First of all you can customize some by changing the GTK/icon-theme and background of GDM.

Background:
sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 –set –type string –set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename /usr/share/backgrounds/some_background.jpg

GTK theme:
sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 –set –type string –set /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme/some_gtk_theme

Icontheme:
sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 –set –type string –set /desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme/some_icon_theme


GTK and Icons are placed in the following folders:
/usr/share/themes/
/usr/share/icons/

second there seems to be a bug that for some of us causes the default imho good-looking black gtk-theme get changed to a simple gray one. I don't now how to fix that and it bothers me alot! ;)
