Chapeau 22’s look & feel
With the next Chapeau major release approaching (currently expected to be around June depending on Fedora’s 22 release date) I’m considering changing the default icon and/or Gnome-shell & GTK themes for Chapeau’s desktop starting from Chapeau 22.
The icon theme being considered and tested for Chapeau is Sam Hewitt’s Moka theme.
Moka has a great balance of modern, purposeful design that’ll look equally at home on a work laptop or a gaming rig and whilst the outline shapes of the original icons are lost the symbolism on the tile-like icons is clean & recognisable. Also I don’t know of any other significant distribution that uses Moka as default.
Gnome Shell & GTK
Whether to change the Gnome shell and/or GTK themes is undecided, currently being tested is Vertex GTK & gnome-shell themes which are clean, purposeful & look sharper than Adwaita. I have some reservations with the fully opaque panels and the additional packaging effort required on my part and whilst cool it might be a might too different.
Any feedback will be appreciated.
