If I'm not mistaken, the color scheme in the gtkrc file is from the Ubuntu 12.04.3 Human theme and very recently I pretty much replaced all the gtk3 code with what was in the Ubuntu 14.04 Ambiance theme and edited the main gtk colors to match the the Human colors.

So far I think it looks wonderful but I still have to recheck the colors in the body. I posted it anyways. The Development version has more of the Human theme's code in it and I may use it as the main download in the future mostly because the files are smaller, neater and load faster. Stay Tuned!

hey Jared,

Yes the theme looks good on MATE now. I had the panel set to 30 px and the icons in the notification area were larger than the other icons in the panel though. :( I reset the panel to 24 px and it looks fine now. Thank you for the edit you made to give a touch of padding around the icons in the panel. :) It's exactly what I wanted.

I will note though, that in my panel.rc I set the spacing to xthickness = 4 in the next release of the theme to make XFCE look almost exactly what GNOME looks like in Ubuntu 14.04 on my Slackware 14.1 desktop. To be honest, I think it looks even better and it's far more customizable than GNOME. However, when I switch over to the MATE desktop there is a few pixels of space on either side of the desktop switcher. I am assuming it's because of MATE's widget code.

If you can figure out a way to get rid of the pixels on the MATE desktop switcher and have a uniform icon size for all applets in the MATE panel the theme will be finished. I like the 4 pixel spacing better. I am searching... Sep 16 2015
That's not a bad idea man... we shall see what the future holds for all my Slackware friends!

BTW: The cool Applications Menu icon is not yet in the "Adwaita-Humanlooks" icon set included in the theme currently available for download...

I will be posting the theme again with two versions available for download... A-H with my "Adwaita-Humanlooks" icon set and A-H with my (latest) icon set born from gnome-dust... "Dust-Humanlooks"

hmmm... Maybe I will just post the icon sets as a separate download for people that just want to use the colors/taskbar and window borders. (prolly a better idea)

Cheers Bro, You Rock! And keep up the good work, hey? Aug 20 2015
