To choose a theme during the install

Registered by daemon666 on 2007-08-20

Lot of persons don't want to customize their Ubuntu. Why not bring them what they want: the possibility to choose betwen few themes (completes) during the install step (with preview).
If their is differents and nice themes by default, Ubuntu can havec lot of new users (who think Human look old).

Whiteboard

A single theme never is good for everybody: too dark, too light, too small or something. That's why the possibility for a user to select a desktop theme on the first start/logon would be useful. This should be done already in the start of a live-cd, for the best possible first impression. The installer should set the selected theme as default in the installed system, too.

This shouldn't be too hard to implement, just start gnome-appearance-properties (and kcontrol in KDE) on the first run.
