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. - Mar 29 2011
Thank you - Mar 12 2011
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. - Mar 10 2011
Working on some gtk/metacity changes including the official color scheme. I'll update asap.

Thanks for the comment. - Mar 09 2011
Yes thats conky :)

Its inspired from this script
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ConkyWizard?content=126352

so download it and let me know if you have trouble configuring the script. - Mar 04 2011
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. - Mar 04 2011
Its called NeoTech. Its not freeware so you might need to purchase it unfortunately. - Mar 04 2011

Thanks for this awesome script. Works perfectly for me.

Is there a way to have the script set a custom resolution on startup by default? Its kind of irritating setting a new resolution after each reboot manually. Any advice would be appreciated.

thumbs up! - Oct 10 2010
First of all this theme is really awesome. The following ideas are just my own preferences but you may like them as well so here it goes...

i) I believe your theme would look better if you add more curves to buttons & scrollbars to match your progress bar.

ii) Please take a look at the "Yumba" theme collection by maliaromE on his deviantart page (search yumba on deviantart). If you can get the scroll bar and scale bar(volume control & music progress bars...) like the one in his yumba-mon-equinox theme it would match your theme perfectly.

iii) You might also want to look into making your metacity a bit slimer. Perhaps just 4 or so pixels off would do the trick.

Hope these comments help & keep up the good work. - Oct 03 2010

Nice work. Believe too the reflection needs some work. Perhaps a version without and another one with a more transparent reflection. Or reversing the gradient so its more transparent on the bottom and less on the top.

Nice work on the background though :) - Aug 07 2010

I second that. I never download themes until I know what they're supposed to look like.

A screenshot or 2 would help us rate it better and give you the appropriate feedback.

I appreciate your comment. Thank you.

To enable the background in nautilus open a nautilus window then click Edit/Background & Emblems
Choose the color button on the left hand side.
Scroll down to Onyx color and drag it onto your nautilus window.
You may also notice there is an "Add a new color" option. You can probably figure it out once you click it to add more shades that suit you.

Hope this helps. - Jul 22 2010
Thank you:) - Jul 21 2010
More details could help me identify the problem you're having.

This theme only requires murrine engine. Make sure you have the latest gtk2-engines-murrine package installed. - Jul 21 2010
Sorry I cant seem to find the problem it's working fine on both lucid and mav. No other users seem to complain about this I wish I could be of more help. Last resort, re-download the theme and extract it again into /usr/share/themes - Jul 21 2010
Are you experiencing this problem in all windows or only the ones with 2 buttons? (eg: no max button) - Jul 21 2010
press ALT-F2
type gconf-editor
then browse to apps/metacity/general
change the button_layout field value to "close,minimize,maximize:" without the quotes.
Let me know if this fixes it.

Now about that font I'm using its called "Neotech" Unfortunately I cant upload it since its not freeware you'll have to purchase it or find a similar font on google. The default font should work fine you just follow my steps above and decrease the font size until it doesn't take up a lot of space (size 9 or 8.5 should be fine).

Hope this helps. - Jul 21 2010
Hi again :)

Thanks for pointing out the null.png problem I forgot I had moved that file to others/null.png I have that fixed and reuploaded.

About the title bar it is set in the theme to cover the window buttons size (close, min, max). If on your desktop the titlebar hight is much larger than the buttons it must be because you are using a big font. You can adjust that by going to System/Preferences/Appearance and then choose the fonts tab and adjust the window title font size. Send me a screenshot if your window looks odd compared to the screenshots above and I'll try to figure out whats wrong. - Jul 21 2010
Thanks for the reply. No you have made no errors in installation. These messages are there because pixmap.rc was designed for nautilus-elementary. The theme should display fine without nautilus-elementary installed.

However, if you do have nautilus-elementary installed
1) rename the "nautilus" folder in Ambiance III\gtk-2.0 to "nautilus backup"
2) then rename the "nautilus (elementary)" folder to "nautilus"

This should solve your problem. If you dont know what nautilus-elementary is visit their website and check it out http://elementary-project.com/news/nautilus-in-elementary/

Let me know if you need further help with this. - Jul 21 2010
I added the Docky skin for you in the theme tar.gz file so re-download the skin.

Just extract it into /usr/share/docky/themes

You are absolutely right about the root size I have mine set to 30 GB ever since I stopped using windows a year ago. I had lousy tips when installing linux for the first time :)
I dont know how to move that extra space to /home without formatting so if you know an easy method let me know. I'm a fairly new linux user.

Unfortunately I do not have the wallpaper without text. You can either use gimp to clone over the text or remake it. Sorry I cant be of help. - Jul 20 2010

People have different tastes I dont mind that you hate the gtk but at least tell me why I should lose it?

Glad you like the metacity but expect an update soon to fix the close and maximize positions. They're a few pixels off.

Enjoy! - Jul 20 2010

Thumbs up. You might want to consider dark menus for this theme. The white menu seems kind of odd.

Other than that might I suggest "Neotech Regular 8" as your sys font it looks better on this theme.

Great effort. - Jul 19 2010

Thank you very much. Tested and worked. Jose you should mention that in the description above :) - Apr 09 2010
This mod removes some menu items from the right-click menu like "sharing options" and "extract here" for compressed files and "Share using Ubuntu one" for example. Although this doesnt cause huge problems I would still like to see those options again in nautilus. Any idea how I can do this? - Apr 09 2010
Works as a charm in lucid, great work! - Apr 09 2010
I just couldn't wait to test it :) I created a folder in home called josejavier (you must be proud) then moved the nautilus-2.30.0 folder in it before I installed and it worked!.

I'm going to fiddle around with it but so far it looks awesome. Thanks :)

Good luck - Apr 07 2010
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/home/josejavier/nautilus-2.30.0/libnautilus-extension/libnautilus-extension.la' or unhandled argument `/home/josejavier/nautilus-2.30.0/libnautilus-extension/libnautilus-extension.la'

Its still referring to your username for some reason :/
This is during the "make" the ./configure runs smoothly. - Apr 07 2010
