This page is a stub about making Openmoko pretty, waiting for openmono-look.org .

Everything is customizable already, but there is not much yet by way of ready-to-use themes for changing everything at once. Eventually, the plan is to offer readymade packages to change the phone's look and feel simply with `opkg' (or the graphical installer).

Changing the Illume theme

To change the illume theme, download an already compiled .edj file and put it into ~/.e/e/themes/illume.edj. The Enlightenment exchange repository offers many themes, modules and applications. The following themes were made specifically with the FreeRunner in mind:

Creating or modifying an Illume theme is not as simple as editing a text file, because for performance reasons the .edj files are compiled. See the instructions about Edje, or this example about Changing wallpaper.

Where to find other themes elements

A GTK theme following the Tango line is at [2].

There are a few background images for the Display Locker screen in Om 2007.2.

Unreleased ongoing work:
