Ambiance Black Panther

Description:

A dark theme that mixes the look and feel of the Ubuntu Ambiance theme and default gnome-shell.

It contains a Gnome-shell theme and a darker version of Ambiance window and GTK3 theme.

To install it, download the file and decompress it. Detailed instructions are contained in the README file.

For gnome-shell's users I have also enclosed a modified version of the ubuntu-mono-dark icon set. Weather's icons are from GNOME set, whereas battery set is a modified version of Humanity-Dark icon set. This fixes Bug #863663 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/light-themes/+bug/863663). The icon set contains also a modified version of the start-here icon.

For the moment the theme is only tested on Gnome 3.4 (Ubuntu 12.04). When I switch to 12.10, I will check for compatibility with 3.6 (next month, if I have some time...)

Hi, your theme is fantastic ;-)
but i have a problem, when i select your theme in gnome-tweak-tool -> theme -> gtk+ theme, the buttons and the scrollbar in firefox and other program (not in nautilus) become like windows95, i don't know why.
I'm not very expert il linux and sorry for my poor english.

Hi giacomp3,
which desktop environment (unity, gnome-fall-back, gnome-shell,etc.) do you use?
I use gnome-shell, so the behaviour in other environments is little tested...
Tell me more and - when I find a bit of time - I will try to find a fix...

Many thanks for the interest and best regards!

OK,
first of all I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a Samsung netbook and, for the moment, I don't have managed to upgrade to quantal (for me this is only an hobby: I am not a professional developer!).
However, assuming that the strange bug is not due to incompatibilities with the last version of Gnome, you may try the following:
- Try to install another theme and see if cause the same trouble
- Open Ubuntu-Tweak, select Optimizations, then Workarounds and finally activate Fix the appearance of themes...
- Install Gnome-Tweak-Tools, then install the extension User Themes (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/19/user-themes/). In order to make this extension to work you probably need to use the Taxidriver's fix:
1. Open a terminal
2. cd ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/user-theme@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com
3. sudo cp schemas/org.gnome.shell.extensions.user-theme.gschema.xml /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
4. sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
Then install the theme with Gnome-Tweak-Tool
- Try to copy the directories of the theme directly in /usr/share/themes

Good luck!

Perhaps I haven't well understood. Windows tops are colored with a gradient from dark gray to black and backwards (it is also necessary to better fit with menu). It seems to me more elegant than a flat black color. However if you explain to me better your idea I will evaluate for a future upgrade.
By all the ways, thank you very much for the interest!
