Nice themes! But apparently there are no window borders on Ambiance (not classic) themes, so I can't resize windows. Is there a way to make them appear?

Report

Sorry about that, Try the 14.04 build we use diffrent borders now, this may be a issue since they did remove some of the borders in metacity. If you can use compiz as your window manager it will work. I will look into that tho.

I just tested the new, updated themes. They work fine except for one important detail: The buttons on the title bars have no color. They're gray no matter what version of the themes I pick (blue, green, yellow..., Ambiance or Radiance).

BTW, I'm on Linux Mint 16, Mate 1.6.1.

Hey There sorry about this, We actully are working On Colored Buttons for the next release we want to get it right and not just do any old color. Also overhauling the XFCE Window Borders and Openbox borders to the new style, It might take a bit but we are on it.

I never liked the greenish look of Mint, your theme and icons makes it a pleasant system!

I like Ubuntu Orange Ambiance, so I must say that I wish your orange tone was closer to Ubuntu's. It is somewhat darker. In fact, you could create another variance of your colors with more vivid colors, like a 'bright' variance. I'd like to see that specially for blue, red and orange.

Awesome work! Thanks!

How did you get the windows' shadow radius beyond 18px? My Compiz manager tool has a limit there on 18, but you clearly have a larger shadow radius in those print screens.

thanks in advance

Report

Ravefinity

Are you seeing a larger radius when useing the theme it's self? Or from the screenshots?

The New Gen version of the theme uses diffrent window stlyings then ubuntu. It uses a design for the unified menubar so the borders and hooks maybe diffrent. so that code could be copied.

Or If you are seeing a larger border from the screen-shots that may be because some (The Later 2) are from Ubuntu 11.10 Since the theme hasn't changed dramiaticly. That may be the size borders that have been setup.

However I'm sure there must be a config file that will allow you to go below or above 18px but that is a compiz specific setting.

I see you have been updating the theme here but I haven't received any updates via the PPA. When do you expect to update the PPA?

Report

Ravefinity

5 years ago

Sorry for the confusion,
Don't worry. You do and will always have the newest build on the PPA (even before it hits this page most likely, becuase the packages are auto-built on the PPA servers). The "Updates" on this page lately (This Mouth) have been to download links and help documentation.

I wanted to make the help and downloads better and faster. for those not on the PPA.

I'm working on the 12.04.1 version at the moment. Despite it's version number it's a major upgrade bringing better colors and lots of goodies. I hope to get it done soon but it's alot of work. :)

hi, the windowborder not working under 3.4. here is a screenshot

can you fix this?

Thanks for the report. It may be a missing argument in the config but I'm not 100% sure yet But I do want to get that fixed. (It works on debian and ubuntu so I'm not sure what I need to do yet But I will figure that out.) Can you try the "Classic-Green" variant and see if it does the same thing?

I'm not 100% sure what the situation is on arch. but it looks like you have all the desktop and theme engine packages installed correctly. But we do use a metacity-1 theme through compiz or threw mutter. I'm not sure if thats part of it.

at arch linux we use the default gnome 3.4.1 and gtk3.4.1, here is a list of times the engines

Name : gtk-engine-unico
Version : 1.0.2

Name : gtk-engine-murrine
Version : 0.98.2

Name : gtk-engine-pixbuf
Version : 0.1.0

with Cassic-Ambiance-Green it does not :/

Hmm that's interesting. That all looks right.

So Am I understanding you in that with "Classic Green" it works? or no it doesn't work?

If thats the case a fix should be very easy. It just a argument that needs to be added.

i installed for testing the Ambiance Crunchy theme and the windowborders work. can you check the different with your theme? here the link http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ambiance+Crunchy?content=151181

Report

Whoa that's weird. The only thing I can see is that theme may use the 11.10 version of the metacity theme. Or perhaps theres a permission issue?

I'm gonna run a few tests on vanilla gnome 3.4. And hope to get it fixed soon.

Once again this baffling because it works on Ubuntu and Debian just fine.

Report

Ravefinity

5 years ago

Oh OK no worries, I gotcha now.
Well I'm gonna have to look deeper into that then. I hope to have a fix out by "12.04.1" It's weird because it works on Debian and Ubuntu.

I'm pretty sure most Gnome Installs still support metacity for there window themes right? so it should hopefully be easily fixable.

Thanks once again for fallowing up. So I can figure this out :)
