Description:

The Finery theme is my implementation of fibermarupoks mockup (http://fibermarupok.deviantart.com/art/Ubuntu-Light-Re-Imagined-156152617) that he created shortly after the new Ubuntu Light Themes were revealed. It also includes a metacity theme.

If you want to read the whole "story" of what I think about the Radiance theme and how I got to implement this mockup, see here: http://immanuel-peratoner.de/index.php?target=blog&post_id=finery-an-ubuntu-light-theme-as-i-would-have-wis

I've also created a git repository on github: http://github.com/iperatoner/finery-themes

Installation:
1. Extract the archive
2. Go into the folder "FineryThemes"
3. Install the themes
3.1. ...via gnome-appearance-properties
3.2. ...by extracting the archives and copying the two folders (Finery, FineryDark) to /usr/share/themes

Using the panel background:
If you want to use the panel background, you have to manually set it for each panel. You can find the file after installing the theme either in `~/.themes/Finery/gtk-2.0/Panels` or in `/usr/share/themes/Finery/gtk-2.0/Panels` (if you installed the theme system-wide).

For the dark variant I recommend the default Ambiance panel background in `/usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0`

Dark variant:
The dark variant is still in testing, please report any bugs/issues with it at github: http://github.com/iperatoner/finery-themes

PPA now available!
Thanks to Shnatsel we now have a FinyeryThemes PPA: http://launchpad.net/~finery-developers/+archive/ppa

Hey, what icons are you using? When you hit the System button you see some icons that I don't,

I'd rather see your theme as default than radience itself, lol thanks :)

It's the default Ubuntu 10.04 Icontheme, but I have icons in menus enabled (which is disabled by default).

Just do a:

gconftool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons --type bool true

Yep, just move ~/.themes/Finery to /usr/share/themes

sudo mv ~/.themes/Finery /usr/share/themes

and then reload the theme and everything should work fine :)

I actually don't know how to create openbox themes, so not very likely. But perhaps I'll try it.

What is the name of the font type in your website? It would look very cool with your Finery theme on my laptop.

A beautiful theme!
I would change only one thing, the close button in metacity is too orange, feels better with the old Humanity icon set,not new .... a final simple question .... there are 5 different backgrounds in the folder, Which one should I use??^_^

I'm also not completely happy with the close button yet. You mean making the orange "lighter"?

The panel background that was set by default before is "bg_panel_26.png".
