Description:

Created this with an idea to have a matching shell theme for Ambiance, the default Ubuntu gtk3 Theme.

I hope i could justify the effects and looks !

Wallpaper is from one of the many masterpieces created by aktarus.

Please Note:
I have used 0.8 as the font scaling factor. If you find lateral shift in the popup menu selection, kindly follow any one of the points mentioned below:

a) Go to Gnome-Tweak Tool , select font and select scaling factor to 0.8

OR

b) Open gnome-shell.css file, search for \".popup-munu-item:active\"
Edit the padding 18px (last 2 lines) to 22px and restart shell for scaling factor 1.

If corner-ripple is needed, rename the corner-ripple1.png to corner-ripple.png. save and restart shell

I Hope 'Ambiance' Fans will not miss this (almost) matching shell!
Thank you for viewing / downloading.
Last changelog:

6 years ago

Revamped the complete theme with a different look and an almost near perfect matching color scheme for Ambiance. This theme is comparatively much faster than the previous version,in terms of responsiveness. IMHO.

22.10.2011
Changed the look and feel of the scrollbar, changed color scheme for selection in search and overview area to go with the ambiance effect, borrowed the toggle on/off from the original ambiance theme posted by half-left long back(which i was unaware till a couple of days back !) changed the look and feel of the looking glass to go with the orange of the Ambiance...

23.10.2011
reduced the size of the calendar pop up menu (which i had done to other shell themes), added gradient to selection background.

now the feel is almost nearest to the Ambiance...Complete with the masterpiece by MadeinKobia (the wallpaper you see in the preview)

Hope you will like this change !

Suggestions / Comments are welcome to help enlighten me in my self learning !

27.10.2011
Added a Orange-Purple combo Version as shown in Preview 3 on request. Hope You like this variant of the Ambiance !

27.10.2011
Added a 3rd Variant with Purple Panels and Purple drop down menus.


29.10.2011
original, 1st version is un-touched. that is clear and flawless IMO

In the 2nd and 3rd variant, cleared the blur that was looking a bit less sharper and changed some minor color tones in selection.

now the 2nd and 3rd variant is sharper and much more pleasing IMHO...

3.11.2011
1st and 2nd variant is untouched.
option 3, that is the 3rd variant panel selected color tones made a shade more brighter, overview selected background color changed to go more with the purple menu and the top panel look slightly modified to give a convex feel.

21.11.2011
No changes in the themes, bundled up all the three versions in one compressed file, transferred the download link to dA

Most welcome!
its my fave GS theme yet!

Question for you...

I just downloaded/reinstalled the updated version..

But for some reason, my scrollbar in the activities/applications overview , did not switch to orange, (its still white) (or is it supposed to be white now?),
and it appears that the orange color in your screenshots is a different shade than what I have,

Do i have to do something different to update it?

or am i just confused? lol

I do notice the updates to the menus and menu switches/buttons, and its very niice!

bESt GS theme ever, mate!

Please keep it up!

How about a version just like this, but using the ubuntu purple instead of orange?

I think that would be the 2nd best ever GS theme! haha

Thanks for the good work man, i really appreciate it! :) <3

one question..

Do you know how I could change the "gnome-foot" icon in the upper left of my screenshots to an ubuntu icon? nothing im trying is working. lol
its not a big deal, just wondering if its possible.
thanks. :)

regarding the gnome foot icon, it must be the default "start-here" icon from your icon set.
go to the icons folder and trace that out. try to replace that with the "ubuntu logo" start here icon from faenza dark or any other icon set that has the default ubuntu start here. restart shell. that may solve your problem.

i am not using that extension i cant check that out. this is just my logical way of understanding your situation !

hope that helps.
