Wow I don't know what happened, I didn't delete them :( I was responding to your comments. I got one reply done when then all of a sudden they stopped showing up (When I refreshed the page).

Gnome-look gave me an "Internal Exception Error" when trying to go back.

It may be something with the database.
Well I got the comments and replied to them but I guess my reply disappeared too.

The Gnome Shell theme included doesn't work perfectly with Gnome Shell 3.4 (authentication dialog for instance). The latest version of the Ambiance Blue Gnome Shell theme included in Ambiance Blue Theme Suite fully supports both Gnome Shell 3.4 and Gnome Shell 3.2 (not tested, but built that way it should work on 3.2). So you may want to re-base your shell theme on mine. I use "Meld" for comparison and merging and I think it will be useful to you as well.

I did port the shell theme to Gnome Shell 3.4 (Ubuntu 12.04) (From 3.2) but I may have missed a variable or two for the AuthBox and perhaps something else (I will double check).
Was there anything else I missed?

Your right! Meld is an awesome app. I used it to compare the 3.2 gnome-shell theme to the 3.4 :) I couldn't find any other Gnome 3.4 Shell themes at the time for reference besides the default one. So I tried to study the new widgets and variables and brought the new code over a few lines at a time keeping the look intact and theme stable. (I Fixed the Icon grids, Search, Highlight, Mouse Over Labels etc for Gnome 3.4) Thanks for reporting that issue I will have a look at your Gnome-Shell theme to see if I missed something on the Authbox. and anything else But other then that the Shell Themes seem to work on 12.04 from what I've tested so far.

But I will have a look again maybe I missed something I'm not a full time shell user. So maybe I don't know all it's functions yet (To test them).

Thanks for the great suggestions and feedback.

I've not checked if there are other errors too. But about authentication dialogs, in Gnome Shell 3.2, they were under the class

.polkit-dialog-password-entry

But in Gnome Shell 3.4, they have been changed to

.prompt-dialog-password-entry

In my theme, I've included

.polkit-dialog-password-entry,
.prompt-dialog-password-entry

so that they will support both Gnome Shell 3.2 and 3.4.

I've merged that into the code. It will be out with the next release. Theres a lot of NEW stuff going into that release so it may be a little bit. (But not too long)

Thanks

I only wanna say, you do a great job :) I know it's very hard to maintain such a huge number of variants, though it seems to be easy. But you might want to correct the dark color. Because it is all orangish. Even in blue themes. You can have a look at my "Ambiance Blue" and it's shade of the dark color - http://satya164.deviantart.com/art/Ambiance-Blue-Theme-Suite-196833665

Hey Satya! Great to hear from you! As I said on Webupd8 your quite the themer! :) Thanks for the kind words and great feedback.

That's a good Idea. I to start have kept it simple. So I haven't changed that dark background color yet. (To clarify for any of those reading unaware what that is, It's the Panel background and dark toolbar background etc) I know it would look great but it's a little hard as we have 8 colors x2 I have to do it for. However I am going to get that done hopefully in the next version or two. (Thanks for reminding me.)

Oh I forgot. I was also considering perhaps making it a generic Black/Grey (No Colorized tints etc)

But I will have to see what looks best.

the blue is not a blue almost purple as the theme ambiance blue

Whoa Really? thats weird. I've found that sometimes purple looks sorta blue on dimmer and unsaturated displays (Like my Thinkpad T61's) but not vice versa. Thats good to know it looks that way for you. (We are working on improving it and need to know your thoughts)

Keep in mind these colors are are darker then normal ambiance and radiance by design. The Blue is sort of a Redish Purple Blue. (But not meant to look purple)

We are in the process of refining and making the colors more "perfect" for the next release of this theme. "12.04.1" Coming in 1-2 Mouths.

If you have any Ideas for colors I urge you to send your suggestions (In the forum of a HTML color code) Keep in mind we want to use darker colors and all suggestions must be under GPL or CC.

Thanks for the feedback.

would be nice to have the tone of the blue theme " ambiance blue" I hope soon.

Thanks for the comment. and the kind words.

Thats an interesting thought. I guess if it where like that it would be on the same color scale as stock ambiance. But it would also be a very light blue.

In this theme we have historically always tried to have the colors be darker then stock ambiance. As alot seem to like that as well.

I'm not sure. Should we stick with darker colored ambiance or go for lighter?

I enjoy these variations of the Ubuntu themes very much. There is just one small thing I would like to change, and that is the default text color. I know grey text is in fashion, but I would prefer it black for maximum contrast and sharpness. Fiddling around in gtk.css, settings.ini, gtkrc etc., I couldn't get the text to change to black. Could you give me a hint what to do? text_color doesn't seem to do it, everything stays the same.

I recall makeing such changes in prototypeing other themes. But I can't recall how ambiance does it off the top of my head.

However I Think what you may want to have a look at is the @base_color and @bg_colors variables I want to say thats it as well. I would make sure to make the exact same changes across the Settings.ini GTK.css and Gtkrc files. And make sure to reload the theme. (Load a different theme then load the modified theme again)

A good way to isolate what value controls what is to change something to a arbitrary color like bright white and you will be able to see what value does what. (If you can't figure out how to effect a cretin widget or aspect)

Hope this helps. Good luck. But I want to say try @base_color.

Thanks!

I found out that I need to set "text_color" and "fg_color" in these files to #000000 to get my lovely, crisp and sharp black:

gtk-3.0/gtk.css
gtk-3.0/settings.ini
gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Nice! I'm glad you found it.
I remember that effecting the menu text colors. But forgot it also effected the text color. in some widgets.

Hey, thanks for this theme I really like what you did ;) There's only one issue:

I'm using ubuntu 11.10, theme installed via gnome look. It only happens when windows are full size :(

Hmm Thats strange. Can you double check if you are using "Ambiance-Blue" and not "Ambiance-Blue-XfceLxde" that version is only for Xfce and LXDE.

Are you using unity 2D or 3D?

Thanks for the info, I'm looking into that right now. I'm hoping it's not a issue with Unity2D not liking custom themes. I thought I read something about that. I Hope to get it fixed if its a issue :)
