Hei All, I have search on google about the original license of Ubuntu theme but didn't found it for the example "Ambiance", yes you can got it on internet, but has modified an people release under deferent license, no author contact address etc in its folder. ok just, i need to edit it too
For every package the license is described in the file
PACKAGENAME is the name of the package.
Most of the files for the Ambiance theme are in the folder
We can use
dpkg to find the package that folder belongs to:
$ dpkg -S /usr/share/themes/Ambiance light-themes: /usr/share/themes/Ambiance
So the package is
light-themes and the license is in
/usr/share/doc/light-themes/copyright: It's basically
CC-BY-SA-3.0 with exceptions for trademarks, logos etc. There are some contact addresses, too.
I found this project I am not sure whether the themes are really part of it because I did not dive deep into it. this seems to be licensed under GNU GPL v3.
To find the copyright license of ubuntu artwork you can simply go and see it yourself in your system. It's located in.
Terminal way to get there
