It would be nice to add this theme as a PKGBUILD in Arch User Repository...

A version compatible with gtk 3.20 would be nice.

Just letting you know the icons don't change when used with Cinnamon 2.6. How could I modify it for Cinnamon?

the theme is designed for gtk 3.14, you surely have a version below

Thankx :) I might fork/tweak it for mint someday. Don't worry I would clearly mention you as the author.

First of all. Thanks to the Author! A really nice theme!


While waiting for an update of the theme you can remove the dotted border in Linux Mint 17.2 (gtk-3.10) by changing the following:

Open the file: Windows8/gtk-3.0/gtk-common.css
Change the line: " outline-width: 1px;"
Into: " outline-width: 0px;"

That will remove the dotted border around each button and image.

Some borders are not showing up correctly, is there a way to fix this?

Nautilus and other gnome apps look like a shot in the face on openSuse 13.1 and gnome 3.10

Is there any chance of fixing that ?

hi,
try my unkownsystem theme ( might fix some thinks). Could be beter for gtk 3.10.
It might be better on ubuntu. Menubars doesn't exist and the metacity theme borderes are disabled. How could it look good ???. Complain to the program creators (e.g from nautilus etc.)

I have Cairo-Dock with the clock applet running and the background of the calendar is the same color as the calendar test making it unreadable. Please fix.

Other than that, good job!

I have downloaded this into the .themes folder in my home directory and then run Ubuntu tweak. Under Tweaks and themes in the Gtk theme drop down I can see the theme listed and I've selected it. This leaves the window borders unchanged. So I click the window theme drop down and the theme is not listed. Am I doing something wrong?

Download the metacity theme as well.
Use ubuntu tweak or similar.

Other tools, like gnome-tweak or unity-tweak depending on your gnome version will not detect themes under your .theme folder.

it's preferable to install into /usr/share/themes

Hi,
i unintendially made a theme really close to yours. Can I copy your tab section of the theme ??. My goal is to make an win8 and win7 looking theme that is 100% compatible to ambiance.

You could also look at my cinnamon hack. It's only for the panel placement but that would already change a lot. I'm planning for XFCE and gnome-fallbyk support too.

Perhaps we don't need to create the complete same theme twice =).

Flavor an colours are proper to every human being.
The pitty is that Windows still an OS no one can natively customize (without hack some dll...)

Even with the index file added I can't get it to show in Unity Tweak Tool. Is there some special way to install it? I just copied it to my .theme folder like all my other themes.
