It took longer than I expected, but I finally got the Okuda theme for N900/Maemo 5 to a releasable state. The package is now available in the Extras repository so you can find it in your Application Manager (or just click here to install if you're reading this on your N900). You'll have to reboot after switching themes for various icons and text colors to take effect (Maemo bug 3659). Send feedback and bug reports to lcars [at] (or just post in this thread).

The theme includes 403 icons, for which I made a custom template (below). The icon template gets sliced during the build process, just like the rest of the theme. Source is available, so if any other theme makers want to cover lots of icons, this should make that a bit easier. (If you want to theme a different selection of icons, you could make your own template layout with the script at the bottom of this old post by my brother.)

The theme installs two wallpaper sets. Details here.

A replacement sounds package to complement the Okuda theme is now available in the extras repository. See this thread for more info.

The Okuda theme is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 license.

Changes in 1.0.2:


Okuda theme (N900/Maemo 5) | Maemo 4 themes (N8x0)

nice one man thanks, i think if you could change something in the Menu it will be great, because it still gives the old feeling.

Seems to work nicely, though I think you should remove the blue border on the desktop and the fat background behind the desktop icons(they appear to use up more space now).

EDIT: Unrelated question, does anyone know if you can get the current theme directory in Xterm?
