Description:

This theme is the edited form of Ambiance theme which is used in Ubuntu 10.10.

Changes:
*Window border controls moved from top left side to top right side.
*Big menu dot(which I found it ugly) replace with icons of applications.

Changes made by gconf-editor are temporary and menu dot can't be change with application icons.

All you need to do is just type

on the same directory.

I don't mind that you've repacked something that I worked on since you did add something new to it with the application icon. However I would have appreciated the courtesy of a credit for the modified theme since I had already released it, and you had commented on the page.

Ok. I calling everybody not downloading any modified theme anymore. Just make an affort to change it. Here what we need to do,

1-) go to /usr/share/themes folder. This is the default folder that all system themes exist in.

2-) Open index.theme(seem as Ambiance) file with su privilege. It's the key file that Appearance recognizes your theme. You will see the following lines in the Ambiance Theme:

-GtkTheme=Ambiance
-MetacityTheme=Ambiance
-IconTheme=ubuntu-mono-dark
-CursorTheme=DMZ-White
-ButtonLayout=close,minimize,maximize:

-GtkTheme stands for buttons, scroll bars etc.
-MetacityTheme stands for window borders which we will edit this.
-Icon and Cursor, you know what it means.
-And the last line Button layout!. ":" stands for separation between right and left sides. You can change the order the way you want. However if you delete this line, ButtonLayout attribute locates "menu:minimize,maximize,close" by default!

3-) Now it's time to make icons visible. We will change window border, so we will edit "metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml" with su privilege again.
Find the <draw_ops name="menu_focused_normal">
<draw_ops name="menu_focused_prelight">
<draw_ops name="menu_unfocused_normal">
<draw_ops name="menu_unfocused_prelight"> tags in the file.

If you look at carefully, these tags render "menu.png" and "menu_prelight.png" with image tag. So we will change these image tags with icon tag for display icons. All you need to do is changing "<image....../>" line of these for tags to "<icon x="0" y="2" width="mini_icon_width" height="mini_icon_height"/>" (without quotes). Save it and it's done. You need to reselect the theme from Appearance for applying the changes.

Now you can modify every metacity theme with these steps.

Now i don't care anybody vote up/down or download or the theme. And also I don't expect any credit, link or whatever JUST FOR DELETING ONE LINE. If there is someone to credit, they are the theme authors.

with all respect

First of all I stated that I've just edited the Ambiance Theme and I didn't used any line of the code of the link that you gave. And if you look at the metacity file of Ambiance, you can see "Kenneth Wimer, James Schriver, Andrea Cimitan" as authors. I can't see yours. So I can't see any reason to credit you. Did you credit other modified ambiance themes?

Yes actually I did give them the credit for creating it. I didn't add my name to the AUTHOR line because I didn't author it, I modified it.

On my original posting for the modification it says:

"This version of Ambiance is a modification of the default theme and moved the controls back to their original position.

This is a direct modification of the default theme. The original name of this theme is Ambiance, this version of the theme is called Ambiance_R (Ambiance Right Side)."


So YES I stated it was a direct modification of the default theme. I didn't say I was the original author. I said I modified it.

However given that you took my modification and simply added to it, you should have in fact stated this on THIS page. Giving credit where credit is due.

Or it would have been better if you simply contacted me and we could have merged your work with the icon into my original modification, and updated the download for the theme. I would have been happy to have you work with me on adding your modification to the Ambiance_R theme.


Either way, I would simply accept the fact that you acknowledge that you took my work and added an additional modification to it.
