Bug Description

Binary package hint: libreoffice

"Ubuntu orange" #ff6309
"Ubuntu yellow" #ffb515"
"Ubuntu red" "#c90016"
The brand identity has changed in the meantime.
A proposal would be:

"Ubuntu orange " #DD4814
"Ubuntu light aubergine" #77216F
"Ubuntu mid aubergine" #5E2750
"Ubuntu dark aubergine" #2C001E
"Ubuntu warm grey" #AEA79F
"Ubuntu cool grey" #333333
"Ubuntu text grey" #333333


@Paul Sladen: Please advice or confirm on the colors and names.

@Paul Sladen: ping?

Yikes, good catch there Björn!

I would drop the "Ubuntu Text Grey" and capitalise the rest + lowercasing the hex numbers:

  "White" #ffffff
  "Ubuntu Orange " #dd4814
  "Ubuntu Warm Grey" #aea79f
  "Ubuntu Cool Grey" #333333
  "Ubuntu Light Aubergine" #77216f
  "Ubuntu Mid Aubergine" #5e2750
  "Ubuntu Dark Aubergine" #2c001e
  "Canonical Aubergine" #772953
  "Black" #000000

All present and correct, yes.

Sorry, but i try find in draw and i see nothing with "Ubuntu Orange" or something similar in color box or in Menu -> tools -> LibreOffice -> Color.
May be it's my comprehension of this bug is not good (i am not an english speaker), have you a file's test or screencast to compare??

I've installed the proposed package and only found the old colors in Impress.

If you have a user-layer (that is some changed settings), the defaults might be overwritten. Try with an new user or remove ~/.libreoffice and ~/.config/libreoffice.

removing those directories did help. The issue is solved.
