Bug Description

This bugs makes it so that developers cannot update the theming, which can be pretty important for some people and also important for working around color scheme issues in the theming (I've filed other bugs on this).

Attached is a very simple application that tries to define the Foo theme which is derived from the SuruDark theme.

$ tar -zxvf ./theme-test.tar.gz
./theme-test/
./theme-test/themes/
./theme-test/themes/Foo/
./theme-test/themes/Foo/parent_theme
./theme-test/themes/Foo/Palette.qml
./theme-test/themes/Foo/MainViewStyle.qml
./theme-test/main.qml

$ cd theme-test/

$ qmlscene ./main.qml
"Theme not found: " "themes.Foo"

Jamie, for now the application can set the theme in the MainView, in Component.Completed. See examples/customtheme application from the branch attached to the bug.

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-ui-toolkit - 1.1.1364+15.04.20141209-0ubuntu1

---------------
ubuntu-ui-toolkit (1.1.1364+15.04.20141209-0ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=medium

  [ Zsombor Egri ]
  * Theming fixes: application theming, binding loop fix, auto-theming
    moved into MainView and it is applicable only on Ambiance and
    SuruDark, SuruGradient is no longer auto-themed.
    Fixes: LP: #1213043, LP: #1277647, LP: #1330510, LP: #1356779,
           LP: #1389792.
  * ServiceProperties component to Ubuntu.Components 1.1.
    Fixes: LP: #1391877.
  * New ListItem component base. Support for leading/trailing actions.
    Exported in Ubuntu.Components 1.2 UNSTABLE release.
    Fixes: LP: #1097728, LP: #1372592, LP: #1383870.
  * removing failing ServiceProperties and app-theming branches
  * Application theming ant other theming related binding loop fixes

  [ Christian Dywan ]

  * Don't activate the control in ListItem.Standard implicitly.

    Fixes: LP: #1391034.
  * Change offending links into bold font. Fixes: LP: #1395011.

  [ Daniel d'Andrada ]
  * This is needed by unity8 for the "shell rotation" feature (ie
    shell does all the rotation work instead of apps rotating
    themselves). unity8's dialogs (like the power dialog when you
    long press the power button) should follow its parent item
    rotation and size, as one would expect, and not be sneakily
    reparented to the scene root item, in which case the shell
    UI would be rotated but its dialog would not.
    Related bug LP: #1394511. Fixes: LP: #1394511.

  [ Tim Peeters ]
  * Remove the old header separator style. Fixes: LP: #1372590.

  [ Loïc Molinari ]
  * Made the UCAlarmPrivate destructor private.

  [ Ubuntu daily release ]
  * New rebuild forced
