ICE Redux

By NanaBuluku
8 Favourites
This is a cool blue version of Radiamentary based on the latest Radiance Gtk (heavily modified) and elementary metacity. It should certainly be considered an alpha. I would much appreciate any bug notices. So far it has only been tested in the latest fully updated Ubuntu 12.04 under unity. I will test and tweak under gnome shell and cinnamon over the next day or two.

Radiamentary Ice


-Changed name to ICE Redux to reflect that it is now based on Redux

-Many bugfixes including one involving illegible insensitive text.


- Heavily tweaked Radiance gtk2 + gtk3 with crisp edges and cool blue tones.
- Overhauled Previous Radiamentary metacity to suit new colour scheme.

I've been using ICE-Redux for a few days now and it is, far and away, the best theme I've seen for gnome (I've been using ubuntu and gnome for around 8 years now). I really like the minimalist, elegant style of I-r. It sets a really high standard. I do hope that it is developed further.
Great work, NanaBuluku!

Hi I've just installed ICE-redux on ubuntu 12.04 running the gnome 2 shell. It looks great. I really like the Mac OS style close/min/max buttons, a very nice touch. I-r is, IMO, one of the very best themes around. Thanks

Oh, BTW, I changed the selection color from that incredibly ugly orange brown that the ubuntu people seem to love. Easy to do, using 

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-color-scheme "selected_bg_color:#D3B37D" 

or whatever other color you want.

See…   post #2 for fuller story.

Thanks for this nice theme.
A couple of suggestions:
1) Nautilus to have folder pane background same as title bar with a thin separator on the right, dual folder pane separator, and a darker background for inactive pane
2) Selection color to be blue instead of orange (e.g. the color used in thunderbird)
May I also ask how you've managed to get the same background for thunderbird main window toolbar? Most other themes miss this and I have to keep changing userChrome.css.

On "System Update" not see the text because it blends into the background.

If you do not mind continuing to signal to other errors. It's my favorite theme and I hope you will please.

There is a new version up!

It's quite an extensive rewrite.

If you like the old version more I can simply fix a couple of the issues you have and post it under its old name. However the new version really is a lot less buggy.

I think we can say that they are two different types. Deserve every two. In the meantime I do a backup of the old theme. Thanks for all NanaBuluku.

Looks great man!! one question...I'm working on a theme and it will not display the sliders and the slider trough is huge. You have any idea on how to fix that? Thanks ;)
