Ubuntu Studio

Ubuntu studio, the Ubuntu edition for audio & video studios has been released, packaged with a real-time kernel for the low latency required for AV work, plus a bunch of other useful AV stuff I don’t really care much for. What I do care for however is the spangly new theme – wow! The core Ubuntu desktop people really need to take some advice from the Ubuntu Studio guys because this is the nicest theme I’ve ever laid eyes on. Take a look for yourselves:


The good news is you can also install this theme on a regular Ubuntu box which I imagine most Ubuntu users will be doing right now 🙂

Paste the following into a terminal to get the goodness:

sudo su -c 'echo deb http://archive.ubuntustudio.org/ubuntustudio feisty main >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
wget -q http://archive.ubuntustudio.org/ubuntustudio.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-artwork

Once you’ve installed the requisite packages, go to themes and look up the studio theme. Very nice indeed.
