You read our mind! I have been doing just that for the past 3 mouths (I had to pause to make a icon theme that goes with it.) I hope to get it out by late November or early to mid December. before 2015. It's driving me crazy to have this thing and not release it but I want it to be perfect as possible.

I've really come to like your work a LOT. In fact, since GNOME-Colors and Shiki-Colors, as great as they were, aren't being developed anymore (honestly, I can't help but think that something has happened to Vic, aka "PerfectSka"), your series of themes has now officially become my favorite suite of icon and GTK2/3 themes and wallpapers.

Thank you for the kind words Freebird, It means a lot.

I do hope Vic is ok. I have found sadly sometimes people just get burned out and disappear from this site and other open source work and even stop answering the email the used to use (They must have another). Sometimes I have been able to make contact with some of them eventually after awhile and thats always nice to know they are well.

I use fedora 20 with xfce, and the title images on xfwm4 not work with transparency. If I remove alpha channel from title-* images, all works.

Ideas?

Report

Do you mean the window title bar images for XFCE on Fedora? Sounds like the alpha layer may be causing issues, Perhaps XFCE in Fedora was not compiled with that enabled or new builds don't use that hmmmm.

I am going to see what I can do. You said remvoing the alpha layer made it work? Does it look good when this is removed? Thanks for letting me know about this I am going to work on it.

Fix for this is in the works it is a issue with most non debian distros and the version or xfwm4 they ship or something like that.

Either way we have fixed it we just have to test and push the update 14.04.6 in a few. thanks for tips you gave they helped alot.

If I install your latest theme package version 14.04.2c-1 alongside MATE 1.8 and Mintmenu the Mintmenu just shows up unthemed in grey with grey letters (see screenshot).

This was present on either version 14.04 or 14.04.2 of your theme.

Thanks for the report. I think a config file for the MATE mint menu needs to be added. I am sorry we forgot about that one. We tested against Mate with stock menu but completely forgot the mint menu in GTK2 (GTK3 works). Hope to have that fixed soon. I will comment back with a link to a fix when I finish one.

I really like that this is a just a small variation on Ambiance (and Radiance). The colors are well chosen and look great. I hope this remains nice and simple as is.

Thank you for the kind words :) that was the goal we had taken on so many changes and modifications in previous versions it was so hard to get things done. we decided to hit the reset button and start over and keep it simple and clean. The Only Thing I am investigating is adding a dark menu variant back and of course the color buttons and open-box theme and hoping that it won't complicate things to much.

Nice themes! Only one suggestion: enable dark context menus for ambiance gtk2 themes. For now gtk3 apps have dark menus but gtk2 have white. Simple fix can be done in gtkrc, line 343:
style "menu" = "dark" {

And the good thing is that these themes works well in Debian with gtk 3.12 (most of existing themes have some bugs with this gtk version). But you must UNINSTALL gtk3-engines-unico. Because with this in gtk3.12 apps just crash. And without it everything still looks nice. You can even comment it in gtk-widgets.css, line 63. I only wonder what I lose by not using unico?

Thanks for the tip.
But I wonder why this trick doesn't work for toolbar.
style "menubar" = "dark" { => GOOD
style "menu" = "dark" { => GOOD
style "toolbar" = "dark" { => NO GOOD

Thank you for the info about Debian, I haven't been able to test in the newest Debian yet. I am not sure what one would lose with not haveing Unico. This new Ambnice and Radince uses quite a few PNG files now so it may not need Unico that much. Thank you for the suggestion on dark menus I am pretty sure I will be adding them back for 14.04.1 build of theme since so many people want them. I just need to test and make sure they don't break any other apps like, Eclipse, Firefox etc.

Thanks for your comment.

I know this is due to the original Ambiance theme, but I think it would be great if you could also tweak and overcome this problem. Otherwise light monochrome icons on a silver toolbar bgcolor don't look nice in Synaptic Package Manager and some GTK2 apps like Chrome/Chromium, KKEdit, etc.

Report

Thanks for your suggestion. I will see what can be done. Unfortunately doing that sometimes breaks other apps because gtk theming is very fickle. But I will look into that.

I understand that this might be a bit complicated. For instance, only some of the themes (i.e. Tribute variants) don't have this problem in the MediterraneanNight Series: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/MediterraneanNight+Series?content=156782)

I am gonna see what I can do, I will be adding dark menus back in the next build I think.
What Icon theme are you using? just out of curiosity?

If you are asking about the icon theme in the MediterraneanNight Series, it's Faenza I guess.

Hi, thanks for these awesome themes.
Is there any way to get rounded corners on dropdown menu? I looked at the css but could not figure it out.

Apparently it is difficult, but possible with this RGBA module:
