Bug Description

Unity use the average colour of the wallpaper as a tint on the launcher, panel, dash and hud.

To narrow the delta between 2d and 3d, we have:
which adds this visual change.

Visual change can be seen with these images:

This code is tested using unit tests, which read the wallpaper image and generate the average color.

Once all the concerns from the MP are sorted (testsuite not working with LANG=C, design concerns about color, merge conflicts cleaned up), this has a rubber stamp from me for the freeze exception.

(Personally, I actually like that unity-2d looks different, but I understand the rationale for having them look the same :P)

Hi Adam,
yes the MR history didn't look too good, did it. It was pretty old.
I can confirm that Design approves of this change (the author worked directly with Design), that the test suite passes & there are no merge conflicts. Original reviewer has commented briefly as much.

(Personally yes, I preferred the old way too)

I'm explicitly +1'ing this from the Docs Team, but any changes that make Unity 2D more like Unity 3D are awesome! (Currently we only use 3D for screenshots.)

jbicha_ confirmed they are using Unity-3D for the screen shots, so this change is fine from their perspective.
Based on that and the comments from Gerry, consider this approved.
