Ubuntu 21.04 themes


First of all, I would like to thank you for the hard work you put into the Ubuntu Mate so far. I have returned back to using linux at home just because how convenient and familiar Ubuntu MATE is.

As a LTS user, I have decided to upgrade to 21.04 just because I love the new themes so much.

The only thing that bothers me is, that the yaru theme is icon sizes oveflow the bounds of the window. For example, the cross icon (that closes a window) is not a circle, it is cut at the bottom. I suspect that this issue is linked to the HiDPI (since I use 27'' 4K display).

Gosh, you could have add a ppa and updated the ubuntu-mate-artwork to meet the new Yaru-themes on your LTS : https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2021/04/install-yaru-mate-theme-20-04


Yes, thank you. I have decided to upgrade since the yaru theme is not the only thing I wanted. I appreciate the simplified system colors management (I prefer blue to green) etc.

As for now, I use sightly modified MATE Ambient. I would use yaru but the icons (especially in toolbars) are way out of proportion and the toolbars are BIG! I don’t need “forward” and “backward” button to be as big as 2.25 cm^2. :slight_smile:
