Description:

The Finery theme is my implementation of fibermarupoks mockup (http://fibermarupok.deviantart.com/art/Ubuntu-Light-Re-Imagined-156152617) that he created shortly after the new Ubuntu Light Themes were revealed. It also includes a metacity theme.

If you want to read the whole "story" of what I think about the Radiance theme and how I got to implement this mockup, see here: http://immanuel-peratoner.de/index.php?target=blog&post_id=finery-an-ubuntu-light-theme-as-i-would-have-wis

I've also created a git repository on github: http://github.com/iperatoner/finery-themes

Installation:
1. Extract the archive
2. Go into the folder "FineryThemes"
3. Install the themes
3.1. ...via gnome-appearance-properties
3.2. ...by extracting the archives and copying the two folders (Finery, FineryDark) to /usr/share/themes

Using the panel background:
If you want to use the panel background, you have to manually set it for each panel. You can find the file after installing the theme either in `~/.themes/Finery/gtk-2.0/Panels` or in `/usr/share/themes/Finery/gtk-2.0/Panels` (if you installed the theme system-wide).

For the dark variant I recommend the default Ambiance panel background in `/usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0`

Dark variant:
The dark variant is still in testing, please report any bugs/issues with it at github: http://github.com/iperatoner/finery-themes

PPA now available!
Thanks to Shnatsel we now have a FinyeryThemes PPA: http://launchpad.net/~finery-developers/+archive/ppa

I have made a slightly modified version of these two beautiful themes - maybe they will be of interest to others as well:

Many thanks iperatoner for your excellent work!

I just wanted to say that I really like these theme (especially Finery)! Great work! I didn't appreciate it until I started using it on a regular basis. The subtilty with which you have placed 'here and there' is extremely good!

Thank you so much for your work.

It would be perfect when the panels are like the original (with gradients).

Panel backgrounds in GTK themes make a lot of trouble that's why I removed them. But feel free to manually set the panel background ;)

Please dont forget to show this to the ubuntu artwork-team. Your theme is million times better than the original and the currently testing themes of ubuntu and do you know why? Yours is FINISHED! They shipped ubuntu with a half baked theme. I cant believe they pay their designers.

It is getting better with every release. Keep up the good work.

Also it would be nice if you made a finerydark with white menus.

Have you tried to change the brown color with the new ambiance-color (from dev branch)? I think is more elegant ....;)
Try it:

Not yet ;) I'm quite happy with the brown color 'cause it's more "warm". But I'll try the new one, though :)

Your theme is elegant, and great refined! Canonical should pick u up! =D

I have some tip, sorry if they have been already proposed:

- ppa & deb packages (with default gradient panel-bg. I have some bugs with banshee app indicator when i select BG in panel options)

- default Equinox engine slider in sound applet

- include Finery Themes Metacity Reworked (i saw u already requested for it =)

- try and set aurulent sans as default font if u like it. They looks GREAT! http://www.dafont.com/aurulent-sans.font

- propose to ubuntu art team and art wiki as default 10.10 theme because it's worth it! ;)

Keep up the great work! =D

i forgot one thing:

- use Equinox default button focus. The murrine focus looks "incomplete". Equinox one is more elegant.

Thank you :)

-> I would also appreciate a ppa/debs, but actually I don't have the time to read up on deb-packaging and ppa stuff

-> I'm already using the Equinox slider :)

-> Now included in 0.1.3 :)

-> afaik it's not possible to include fonts into GTK/Metacity themes

-> I've already posted it at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Maverick :)

-> Sadly it is not possible to only use the equinox focused button style on buttons. But I am already trying to make the best out of what's possible with Murrine.

- as you can see here (http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/5359/schermatar.png) the sound apple is not using equinox slider. See also the banshee applet icon cut :)

- these is equinox button focus (http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/2833/schermata1z.png). Why can't u use it? Your theme is not based on Equinox?CYII

-> :-O oddly now I also have the ugly slider in the sound applet. Either I have broken something up or there've been changes to the Equinox engine

-> Nope, my theme is mostly based on murrine. It is not possible to mix those two engines together. That means I can't use murrine buttons + equinox button focus

I had the same problem, but the latest version from git fixed it. Screenshots: http://s45.radikal.ru/i107/1009/51/a02b8f6a340e.png

It IS possible - as far as I remember, I did it some time ago. Don't remember how, though.

Looks fantastic! Here's what I did in lieu of a ppa: I just cloned the git repository and made symbolic links to /usr/share/themes/, so whenever there's an update I can just cd into ~/workspace/finery-themes/ and do git pull to update. I could even set it as a cronjob or something if I wanted it to be completely automatic.

I am also not very happy with them yet.

Those look really great:

But I also like the window buttons of your DustSand air (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/DustSand+air?content=120786). Could you send me the source files (*.svg, *.psd, *.xcf or whatever) of them?
