Ambiance + Adwaita = ADWANCE!

I only made the gtk3.

ATTENTION: please download and update your theme with the latest zip which I just uploaded, it solves an annoying bug with dark background!!!

(there is still a bug with comboboxes text color, but it's a bug of gnome, it is on bugzilla...)

WARNING: this won't work (yet) with gtk 3.1, so stick with 3.0 or use another theme while i'll fix it :)

Does it work with gtk 3.2.3 ?
TheDeviantMars Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012
I do not update it anymore, so I think it won't work.

This is a great work. I wish you had the time to make it look like Ubuntu 11.10's Ambiance.
TheDeviantMars Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011
thank you.
the theme relies on the Adwaita gtk engine, the default one (the grey/white theme) of gnome3.
I just tweaked the colors and buttons to resemble ambiance, i didn't want to make a "copy" of it.

ambiance was still to be ported to gtk 3 at that time, and now that it is, it relies on Unico gtk engine, so it is way different from mine.

I won't do a lot of work to have a second ambiance theme, since this wasn't my goal from the beginning.

thanks ;)

Great theme! :) However, where can I change the title-color of inactive windows? Atm it is black and a little hard to read on the dark-chocolate background. Additionally I see a one-pixel high line between the title-bar and the menu-bar of the windows. How can I get rid of this?
TheDeviantMars Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011
the title bar is not affected by my work.
I just included the ambiance (ubuntu) ones.

Thanks for the compliments ;)

Nice job on this theme! I'm glad I stumbled upon it as it makes a great addition to half-left's gnome-shell theme.

gnome-shell theme: [link]

The only thing I'm not liking is that the File, Edit, etc bar is black. It makes the titlebar look gigantic!

it's like that to be similar to ambiance, the gtk2 of ubuntu.

Nice theme.
And how to get that cool icon bar on the left?
TheDeviantMars Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2011
that's the dock, a gnome-shell extension. :)
