Blue Wave by nowerries Blue Wave by nowerries
This is a new theme (my first one) that I created using Ubuntu's Ambiance GTK2/GTK3 as a building block.
The purpose of this theme was to make something that was easy to read, integrated well in both gnome-shell and ubuntu unity desktop, and looks seamless between gtk2 and gtk3 (still working on that).

Since this is my first theme much critique is welcome, I am sure there is lots that can be improved upon.

Also included is a gnome-shell theme, but it is far off from completion and probably shouldn't be used on a production desktop.

Added a dark variant of the Blue Wave Ambient theme.

Hmmm, well if you wait I will throw this on the g/f's computer who is still using gnome 2.32 and will see what's up with them. Check back tonight because I take a look in about an hour.

what os/desktop enviroment are you using. You are talking about the red, yellow, green (close, minimize,maximize) buttons right. When I run my mouse over them they appear with the appropiate symbols on the button. When you press they should darken in color. In unity when windows are unmaximized this dosnt seem to work (for any theme) don't ask me why.

Well don't know what to say, I tried the theme on ubuntu 11.04 running gnome 2.32.1 and the metacity window buttons still work fine, they symbols are not the greatest of contrast, next update I will add a variation of ubuntu ambiance buttons that light up bright blue.

There you go updated the package (fixed the view selection color, if you noticed it was messed). I've included my altered ambiance buttons, just extract the folders Blue Wave, and Blue Ambient Wave to /usr/share/themes. Then you can switch between what one you want.
