Description:

These are Window Buttons themes for Ambiance - the new Ubuntu Lucid Lynx look.

To install, download the tar.gz, unpack and copy the folders contained within to /usr/share/windowbuttons/themes/. You require superuser permissions to write to that folder - e.g. via:
gksu nautilus

The screenshots show it combined with Globalmenu. It works best on a dark panel background (default in the Ambiance GTK theme).

Screenshot 1+2 show the default Ambiance theme and screenshot 3 shows the newly added Ambiance Soft theme.

Here is where you can get Window Buttons: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Window+Applets?content=103732

This is excellent! Do you know of or have you made one of these for Radiance as well? There is a slight difference, and this has a dark ring around the buttons on my Radiance panel. Would be much appreciated.

My apologies to those of you who tried to download version 0.4 in the last couple of minutes: Gnome-Look is apparently unable to overwrite the old tar.gz of the theme. I now compressed the themes into a ZIP-archive & re-uploaded them. That seems to have done it.

Could you make the "clicked" images darker and 'pressed' like they appear in the original Ambiance theme?

Don't wanna be picky, but could you make it even darker, like this:

Thank you for the screenshot!

Are you certain that that the version of Ambiance metacity shown in it is actually the correct one shipped with Lucid and not a modded / altered version?

I checked with the version of Ambiance I have installed on my system and made sure that version 0.3 is identical to it.

Therefore, it is strange that your version of Ambiance metacity obviously differs.

Hmmm. It's probably because I'm using Ubuntu on the desktop, and you're using it on the laptop (or netbook). Ubuntu has different theme definitions for those.

It looks like we'll need both versions.

Done. Download version 0.4 for both variants of the theme.

Shuttleworth said something about blending window title into the panel, so he will probably use window applet - and I hope he'll use your work =)

the color when the mouse is over the X button isn't red as the default mode...
