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

Whoops, didn't recognize this since I'm using the panel background. But I'll fix that :)

Ambiance theme will come when there's not that much anymore to do on this base theme.

Ah, wonderful. This is one of the only imperfections with this that I can see. Thanks :)

Thanks... Waiting for your Ambiance implementation too.

This one is really great, also if I'd prefer a dark top-bar ;)

Just checking to see if it is just my setup, when I maximize a window I don't get an unmaximize button, it stays the maximize button. Can you assist?

Thanks Ogre

Actually there is no unmximize icon at the moment, because I've just taken the icons from fibermarupok's theme (http://fibermarupok.deviantart.com/art/Ubuntu-Light-GTK-Theme-156313158) which doesn't include that icon atm.

I'll try to find or create an unmaximize icon which is not very easy without the icon's source files :D

Thanks so much....this is by far the best (to me anyway) of the Ambiance/Radiance style themes. Thanks for all your work!
