The default color palette almost only have hard colors and the alternative software has some basic colors and them several shades.

Thanks for that, but I didn't find it in the version I'm using. But also find a way to do it. – Pipe Mar 21 '12 at 18:47

I also changed the file from i.uve.a.ene because in his version only shows 8 columns and not 10. From his work I've remove some colors and keep the Ubuntu and Chart. This is the final aspect of the colors in the main menu.
