having kubuntu branding

Postby dracorX on Fri Nov 16, 2007 5:06 am

Hehe, please don't flame, only answer, if possible:-)

My problem is following: I do LOVE linux Mint. But I don't like all the artworks: although it s nice, it doesn't fit my taste.

A friend just installed GUTSY Kubuntu. Where I love the whole presentation (from bootscreen to splash to login and all)

Is there an easy way to rebrand mint to kubuntu?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You mean have it look like Kubuntu?
Take a look at the different themes already in Mint and I would suspect you could install a theme from Kubuntu

If you mean the grub splash, a quick answer is no. You might find some info on grub splashing in Kubuntu that suits you here:

This should work in Mint KDE as well

Apart from that there is a gutsy kdm theme in the kdm theme bit of kcontrol and a kubuntu gutsy backround available under /usr/share/wallpapers/ in the beta 4.0 KDE Darnya Mint.

I hope this helps :)

Install the package kubuntu-default-settings. That will give you the artwork and settings for kubuntu.
