Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

I'm back from the holiday so it's time to get back to work. But firstly, a big thanks to everybody reading WebUpd8 and sorry for the almost 2 weeks break.

There's a lot of catching up to do, and I'll start with the updated Light Themes package which landed in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat while I was away. To make it easy to install for everybody still using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, we've uploaded the Ubuntu Maverick version to the WebUpd8 Light Themes PPA. Besides the Light Themes, the PPA also has the latest Murrine Engine from 10.10 and the updated Ubuntu Mono icons.

Besides making it easy to install the Light Themes, our PPA will also keep you updated with each change in the themes as well as the icons (ubuntu-mono as well as the Humanity icons).

To upgrade to the latest Light Themes version in Lucid, use the following commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/light-themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Once everything is installed, log out and log back in to be able to use the updated Ubuntu Light Themes!
