John Baer: AX Theme Released For Ubuntu 13.04


Published Jun 8 2013 via RSS

2839-000

With every Ubuntu release I find myself deep into the bowels of the default GTK theme tweaking this or that. Not so much driven by dissatisfaction, I am motivated by the possibility of improvement resulting in a better user experience.

I’ve noticed a trend is afoot to flatten the appearance of themes. Chrome OS is a good example of this and it is rumored the new iOS 7 will be the same. Evidence of this is observable in Ubuntu as the file manager icons of the navigation tree are flat.

I used this as a design goal for this release and I am pleased to announce the availability of the AmbianceX (AX) theme for Ubuntu “13.04″.

The following screen shots illustrates how the theme presents.

Files

Ubuntu 13.04 uses Nautilus 3.6 by default. The tool bar is flat and has been enhanced with navigation buttons matching the “open files” dialog control. Tree view elements are tinted when the mouse hovers over them to aide in navigation.

2839-010

The scroll bars mimic those found on web pages such as Facebook or Google Drive.

Rhythmbox

The tool bar playback controls are now tinted when you hover your mouse over them.

2839-015

Inkscape

GTK2 applications like Inkscape are themed to match their GTK3 siblings to the extent possible.

2839-020

Appearance Dialog

The appearance dialog contains a plethora of UI elements and is a good example of how these elements compliment each other.

2839-025

Errata

The menus in Libre Office do not highlight as desired on the mouse over event. This is also an issue with core Ambiance.

Installation

Step 1 – Download installation package

Download the installation package here.

Step 2 – Expand the Archive

2839-050

Step 3 – Open Terminal

Open a terminal window by simultaneously pressing the “ctrl-alt-t” keys or open from the Unity menu.

Step 4 – Move to AX Directory

~$ cd Downloads/AX-Install

Step 5 – Run Installation Script

~$ sudo bash InstallAX.sh

Step 6 – Confirm Installation

2839-055

Step 7 – Log out

When the installation script completes log out and then log in.

Installation Notes

The installation script automatically disables the auto scroll bar feature. To re-enable run the EnableUbuntuScrollbars.sh script.

To uninstall AX simply run the script and select uninstall from the menu.

Enjoy :)
