Bug Description

I'm testing LibreOffice 3.6 RC1 from the LibreOffice pre-releases PPA. This version features a new, green splash screen with a white progress bar. The Ubuntu builds have instead an orange progress bar, and while this worked well with the previous splash screen, now it looks really ugly and out of place.

Please remove the patch to "ubuntify" the splash screen. If Ubuntu wants to customize LibreOffice branding, let's instead do a complete change to the splash screen and not just the progress bar, that's odd IMHO.

Adolfo Jayme Barrientos, thank you for taking the time to report this bug and trying to help make Ubuntu better. Your position is too subjective and brief for this to be moved forward as is. As well, such a change would need further discussion and review before any action taken towards it. If you insist this should be changed, please provide a detailed, objective, and technical analysis on why LibreOffice in Ubuntu would benefit from your proposed action.

While I wont action this as is, it raises a valid point and needs to be considered. Subscribing Canonical UX.

@penalvch: Sorry if I sounded too vague, but can you please explain to me how can I provide a "technical" analysis of a purely visual change?

Anyway, if this helps to be more "objective", deep orange on deep green has low contrast, it's almost invisible.

And as I already said, it doesn't make sense to me to carry a distro patch with the only purpose of changing the color of the progress bar.

Adolfo, excellent suggestion, thank you. A fully-themed splash screen could be better (and not needing a splash screen would be better still), but as long as we don't have that, let's avoid the orange-green mishmash.

self-assigning to make the bar shiny upstream white.
