Description:

Minor changes in the awesome Fitts metacity theme as well as ubuntu's default Ambiance theme.Links to the original work is provided below.

Credits to albyrock87 (Fitts) and the Canonical artwork team (Ambiance).

If you have any ideas for better breadcrumbs or other modifications others might enjoy feel free to post a comment or message me personally.

*** Tested and intended for Ubuntu 11.04 ONLY ***

This theme is intended to be used on Ubuntu 11.04 therefore the panel bg has been changed to solid black to match the unity panel. To use it on gnome panel rename panel2.png to panel.png in the theme's img folder. Unity users/testers might want to set the unity panel opacity to 0.67 from the compiz unity plugin for a better experience.

I like the bold use of Ubuntu orange in the nautilus sidebar. Very vibrant and striking theme, the Ambiance Fitts metacity works really well with the colours.

Thanks I appreciate your comment :) I'm still not satisfied with some elements like the breadcrumbs and scrollbars so I'll take a few days off and hopefully come up with some ideas to improve this theme.

I like it because the panel fits unity better. Good job.

I like this theme. It is more or less minimal, with larger buttons in Metacity. I would leave it just the way it is. However, I was wondering if you would consider creating a version using Canonical's "Aubergine" color in the titlebar. The combination of an aubergine titlebar with your nice orange controls would, at least in my opinion, be a complimentary pairing, and given that the two colors are featured in Ubuntu by default since 'Lucid', I feel that it would look nice not only with the default wallpaper, but with the many other similarly themed wallpapers as well. It's just a thought, but I would love to see it on my own desktops. Thanks.

I played around with your idea for a while and found out that aubergine doesn't render well on this shade of gray. It'll just make reading the title bar more painful sorry. If you would like to have a go at it be my guest. Edit line# 140 in the metacity theme with your desired shade and if you want outlines to the title text edit the lines above 140 in the same section.

Good luck and sorry to disappoint.

Have you consider in making the Metacity theme without borders?

I haven't thought about removing the borders since it'll make resizing windows a bit of a hassle for me. You're welcome to mess with the code.
