free Ubuntu Light for Windows XP themes download

My intention was to bring the new polished look of Ubuntu and a more consistent visual appearance into my Windows programs in Virtual Box or Wine. As XP is still more widely used than Windows7 (especially in VirtualBox), I started with the Ambiance color scheme in XP msstyles format. Contributions of any kind are highly welcome!

This is a work in progress and there are still some bugs. If you have more knowledge of Windows Visual Styles, it would be great if you could help me:

  • Unfortunately, many parts of XP styles cannot be skinned (context menu, rectangular text inputs, etc.). In addition most windows programs do not consistently use system colors/fonts, but override them with hard-coded colors/fonts (black) which can cause weird results. If you know how things could be improved, I would appreciate any help.
  • in general Windows uses smaller sizes of fonts and controls
  • some font colors still do not match
  • problems with the dark menu background (some apps override it and display both text and background white)
  • I couldn't get the progress bar to work
  • an icon theme would be awesome, aswell as Radiance and Ambiance Dark color scheme
  • fixed: magenta toolbar backgrounds in Wine
  • updated: window captions and final Ubuntu font

How to use:

  • for using custom Windows themes, you always need to have a patched uxtheme.dll, for example with UXtheme Multi Patcher
  • you can get the window buttons on the left side using LeftSider
  • right click on the task bar, then 'unlock' and move it to the top
