Description:

All credit goes to the elementary team.

I just got tired of not being able to use this awesome theme with unity so I made a few tweaks to enable dark menus and a dark panel with gradient like elementary os.

Everything else is the same except for an intentional tiny gap between tabs and dark text instead of white on menu prelight.
Last changelog:

8 years ago

Added version with no breadcrumbs or requirement for nautilus elementary.

Also removed resize-pane pixmap that seemed to add too many pix to the side of frames in non-elementary apps i.e. almost any app other than postler or dexter.

Cheers! And that last comment I made was directed at that other guy, not you. It's hard not to get angry when people a needlessly aggressive like him.

It's only for ubuntu users. Well, for windows users who want to try Linux. Every windows users love ubuntu because it's not a real linux distribution.

Unity is the new shell(desktop) for ubuntu. Some people hate it, some people love it. Elementary didn't theme it properly so I made it do so because I love the theme so much.

Shuttlworth put the window buttons to the left and people cried. Unity is making them slit their linux loving wrists. I for one think the more the linux comunity fractures and differentiates the better, everything was getting really freaking homogeneous for while there.

Actually, Shuttleworth wants to dominate the linux world with Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is only for the kind of people who loves Apple, for "fanboys" only that don't care about freedom or community.

Using something else that the "real" Gnome GUI is stupid for Ubuntu, this is the best way to show how it wants to not be in the comunity. Well, fuck ubuntu, go to hell, and fuck ubuntu users too, they are too stupid to use a real Linux distro :)

Hey dude settle down, it's just a desktop. I think there's room for everyone in the linux community. Also, linux is the kernel, gnome is a desktop environment.

Where do you get off? What are you a troll? I used Slackware, yes SLACKWARE, bitch, for YEARS, before I switched to Ubuntu, and I love it! Everybody is certainly entitled to their opinion, but dude, srsly, F*** YOU!

For the record, I hate Apple, and I have lived in the Command Line on Linux for a long, long, time. I've been using LINUX exclusively for over TEN YEARS, and I have RedHat certification. I am a serious Linux power user, and I love what Ubuntu is doing. I don't always agree with it, but I love it the same.

"Fuck Ubuntu users"? Fuck YOU bitch!

This is fresh. I like it (after commenting out the elementary breadcrumbs in nautilus).

Actually one thing I don't like is the resize handle, but it looks to be a problem with other gtk themes too. E.g. it eats into the buttons of some windows and dialog boxes (e.g. the close button of the Appearance Preferences window) and it looks like crap in Evince.

Cheers! ...but as I said, this is simply a port of the elementary os theme, I claim no credit for any design elements (except for adding a small gap between tabs and making menu prelight text dark instead of white). The original theme doesn't paint the panel and menus properly in ubuntu 11.04 but it does contain all the stuff necessary to make it so.

Yeah, it might be an idea to upload a version without breadcrumbs as I think, at least for a while, nautilus elementary may be less ubiquitous than in previous ubuntu releases.

The grab handles have always looked a bit garish to me too but I wanted to keep everything as true as possible to the elementary teams original concept. You can always comment those out too.

Not being much of a theme editor, how might one comment out the resize handles? Mucho gracias!

Hi, sorry for the late response, I haven't checked back here in a while.

Open the gtkrc in the elementary theme folder and place a # in front of these two lines:

widget_class "*GtkHPaned" style "pixmap-paned"

widget_class "*GtkVPaned" style "pixmap-paned"

is there any chance to alter the window buttons in the panel?

Nope, not as yet. The unity default fallback icons (invoked whenever a theme with a name other than "Ambiance" is chosen) are hard coded. The only theme-able aspect to them is that the minimise and unmaximise buttons change to whatever colour you make the panel menubar/maximised-window-title.

Hopefully the panel will become more flexible in the 11.10 development cycle.

You can just rename the theme to 'Ambiance' and create symbolic links for the metacity icons to match the names used by the Ambiance theme...
