GNOME Shell - Ubuntu Ambiance

This is a GNOME Shell theme based on the default GTK theme (ambiance light) that comes with Ubuntu. The Ubuntu font is enabled by default in this theme so it fits better.

Wallpaper comes as part of Ubuntu 11.04.

3.4 Version


Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes. Unzip the file and load which version you want into the gnome tweak tool, i.e

GNOME Tweak Tool

Make sure you have user-theme-extension installed. Load the GNOME Tweak Tool and go to Shell Extensions and click the "Use Theme Extension" switch. Now go to Theme>Shell Theme and click the box and locate your theme zip. Now you can select the theme in the dropdown box.

License: GPL3

Compatibility: GNOME 3.0.x/3.2

Update - 18th December 2011

- Added GNOME 3.2 compatibility.

GNOME 3.2 compatible only and I don't use GNOME any more.
Gnome-Shell 3.4 support would be nice, as this is the best theme to use in conjunction with Ubuntu 12.04 :)
Yay, thank you!

Really nice, I'll install this when I'm on Ubuntu side.
Nice theme, the best so far for Ubuntu users!

One problem, tough: when you use the textbox (activated with the "special key", on the left side of the spacebar) to search for a program, the shell stops: nothing works anymore. I have to kill the process by hand using text-only interface on Ctrl+Alt+F1.

I saw that problem only in that theme. I have several others here and none of them gave me that problem.

Make sure you're using the right version. If you use 3.0 version it will do that.
It is working great! Thanks!
Great theme, but on my machine, when I use the textbox to fill in the name of the program I want to run, after the two first letters, it stalls.

I've tried with other themes and they worked well.
