This is my first theme so enjoy. I used the default ambiance theme as a bulding block for this. Plus the window buttons are from the adwaita cupertino theme.

I am creating this theme with the idea of creating a theme that intergrates seamlessly across all apps/widgets etc. Getting the GTK2 theme to match up with the GTK3 has been difficult. Another goal of this is theme is to make something that is easy to read, clear, looks good and doesn't take attention away from the task at hand.

There is a gnome-shell theme included in the package (credits to creator of hope gnome-shell theme (I used it as a starting point)). Still needs a lot of work, but is being worked on.

I will be tweaking this theme a lot in the weeks to come so any suggestions are welcome.


Only bug I have noticed so far is fonts unreadable in Ubunut Software Center the fix for this is to in terminal type...

sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/ui/gtk3/css/softwarecenter.css

.... and change the color value of @define-color super-light-aubergine to #666666.

Any suggestions are always appreciated and updates should come fairly frequently.

Just added a darker variant of the Blue Ambiant Wave theme.
