This page is a stub about making Openmoko pretty, waiting for openmono-look.org, see also Artwork for more general pretty things.

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:

  • A Tango variant for Illume based distros is at [1].
  • CarloRatm illume theme. If you do not read Italian try this thread on the mailing list first.I've made it only for testing an application, there are some errors (e.g. the charging battery icon...) i'll try to solve next days -- CarloRatm

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.


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.
