Ambiance Crunchy
GTK2 Themes
Score 70%
Description:

It's an Ambiance like Theme for Fluxbox, Icewm, Openbox, Lxde, Xfce, Gnome2/Mate & Gnome3 (Unity, Gnome-Shell, Gnome-Classic & Cinnamon). Gtk-3.16 and Cinnamon 2.8 compatible.

The objective is to have it working very well in all that environnements with a choice of 4 flavours.

NEW: set of grub2 themes. More infos : https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1160963/

INSTALLATION:
* open a Terminal in the folder where the file Crunchy-themes.tar.gz is
* and copy/paste this command line (Ubuntu like distros):
[indent]sudo tar -zxvf Crunchy-themes.tar.gz -C /usr/share[/indent]
(or if you are in Debian)
su
password
tar -zxvf Crunchy-themes.tar.gz -C /usr/share

Customization of the window-list extension in Gnome-shell
As we can't theme it, we have to change the original files. So we have to make copies of them before making the customization. In a terminal:

su
password
cd /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/window-list@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com
cp classic.css classic_Origin.css
cp stylesheet.css stylesheet_Origin.css

cp classic_Crunchy.css classic.css
cp stylesheet_Crunchy.css stylesheet.css

Setting the theme in Gnome
* Unity: you have to install and use Unity-tweak
* Gnome-Shell: Gnome-tweak (Advanced settings) must be used and the user theme plugin activated
* Cinnamon: in the control center / themes

Openbox rounded Buttons
If the display of the buttons is weird, just set the "active window title" font to the right size. Example : Ubuntu (regular) 11.

Gtk engines dependancy
Murrine & Unico are needed by the theme. To be sure they are installed:
[indent]sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk3-engines-unico[/indent]

Hello,

First of I wish to thank you for developing such an impressive theme - I really appreciate your work.

And because I really liked your theme and wish to continue using it I would be very grateful if you could advise me regarding fixing following issue.
I am using Fedora (Korora) 22 with Cinnamon Window manager and when there are many running applications and in such a way many buttons on the panel a system tray (area on the panel with system icons such as display, network etc.) starts to slide towards clock, so that some of the system icons are clipped by the clock as on the following image where keyboard layout is clipped by the clock:

http://imgbox.com/AgW3S8Qf

I checked with some other themes (e.g DeLorean) and I did not observe sliding effect. I browsed through cinnamon.css but so far I did not find anything relevant, so I would be more than grateful if you could suggest a way to prevent effect of the sliding of the system tray.

Thank you very much in advance!

Benoit! I am glad to see you back in action!

It's been awhile since we have last talked.

I hope all is well. I have been working away on 3 new themes since November 2014. It's really crazy time just flys never enough it seems.

Hello Jared,
Such a huge work you've done for a year! The update of the historical themes and 3 new ones that came these 9 last months!!!

I always test your themes when I have issues on mine to see if you have fixed them before me.

Everything is fine. I had just to spend more time to take care of my father (the regular eldery issues).

Thanks.

Glad to have seen you back with a huge work on your themes since april!

And thanks for your answer (that saved me a lot of time) for the nautilus behaviour since Gnome choosed to incorporate the window manager buttons in it. In Unity, it's impossible to make a choice between the gnome-toolbar code and the one when a window decorator is present..

Thanks Benoit, I actually just came across a fix for the nautilus gap issue yesterday after many hours and days and weeks of torment (I worked like crazy to push it out to users right after discovering it)

Basically Open the GTK3 gtk-widgets.css and goto line 1938 under primary-toolbar and add "border-radius: 0;" right under "border-width"

Have a good one.

Just want to start off by saying I really like this theme. The only thing that bugs me about it is in the picture; the bar in Nautilus (I don't know what it's actually called) has rounded top corners and a gradient which doesn't fit. Hopefully you could get this fixed because I love everything else. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04

I know it but didn't find a way to fix it yet. I'm on hollidays for now. The only work around is to install Nemo. I need the rounded corners in GNOME-SHELL. GNOME made some changes in Nautilus. I haven't understand how to code the theme for it.

This is a weird issue I am having it too with my themes Ambiance Colors, The funny thing is if you copy the original Ambiance theme and rename it making no modifications it will happen too. Meaning we didn't break anything it's not our fault. It appears to be a bug in Ubuntu or Nautilus (They ship a custom forked build of it now) Any theme that is not stock Ambiance appears to have this issue, except for 1 or 2 some other custom themes. I am trying to articulate a bug report but I fear they won't care. I am looking for a workaround I will share if I find one. So far the solid answer is to use Nemo.

Bonjour,
Bravo pour votre thème, je l'aprécie grandement ! Cependant, j'observe un défaut lorsque j'ouvre une fenêtre de l'explorateur des dossiers. En effet, les deux coins supérieurs de la barre d'adresse sont arrondis/blancs.
Je suis sous Ubuntu 14.04 x64 avec Unity.
Dans l'espoir que ce léger désagrément soit corrigé.

Et j'ai oublié de préciser que le bouton (X) pour fermer la fenêtre est positionné légèrement plus haut que les boutons réduire/agrandir. Je ne sais pas si cela est voulu mais je tenais à le signaler.
Merci et bravo ;)

Hmm it's possible to use background image instead of styles as you did for whole panel?

Report

Tried the line:
background-image: url("../../gtk-2.0/apps/img/panel.png");

..in xfce.css and it doesn't work for now...

I think there's a bug reported about that issue (for either a gradient background or image file background).

The only way is to choose a file as a background in the setting of the panel in your distribution.

in the folder /Crunchy-orange/gtk-2.0/apps, you have a file "panel (to have black bg in panel).rc".

It's from an old version of the theme.. I had some issues with it but it can be a way for you to find how to make it black...
