I fully understand, you're already doing a great job with Greybird, and it makes more sense to focus on making it better and better instead of working on several themes and not having enough time to make them better ;-)

Hello!
You can modify the css to the bottom panel of panel-docklet v3 comes in black ?

The extension is: [link]

I want something like this: [link]
The bottom panel in dark.

But with your theme appear in transparent .
[link]
When you can update it to be black down menu?

Best regards

I noticed in the stylesheet of the viper that has no reference to the theme. How does that appear in black?

I love your theme.

just a hint, to make your theme different from the ambiance colors blue, you could make the menus dark as in oneiric, like this: [link]
but with the blue theme, obviously.

sorry if i'm asking too much, and thnks for the theme =D

The following part was the reason:

.search-result-content:selected > .overview-icon {
background-gradient-start: #f2f4f6;
background-gradient-end: #d8dee3;
border: 1px solid rgba(150,150,150,0.9);
box-shadow: inset 0 0 1px 1px rgba(255,255,255,0.6);
color: #ccc;

Thanks for this. I really like it. One thing is in activities window, when I search for a app, the highlight background for the selected app (which I can move with arrow keys) is weirdly white. If I move mouse and hover over an app icon, the highlight is correctly blue.

Hi Satya You did a great work!
Only a question, which file and line/parameter do I have to tweak in order to get the dark toolbar background back?

gtk-widgets.css file. But if you only want Ambiance with blue, try Ambiance colors. Since the arrival of Ambiance colors, i thought I would do some modifications to this theme to distinguish it from Ambiance colors - [link]

Forgot to add: Thanks for making the only themes I have seen that are compatible with MGSE Window list. You'd think for such a popular extension that themes for it would be more common...

Very nice except for one little thing: Could you alter the "running" border in the Dock to look a bit more like Minty's? Or at least, something other than a faint outline.

Hey Plz reply this
I want to edit radiance theme from ubuntu and just want to do one change in it that is changing color orange to Blue..
because no other themes work with Unity-2D, in maximized window the window controls appears in fallback mode(ugly as hell) and these themes work perfectly with unity -3D but not with 2D(the fall back window control problem)

Try editing gtk.css file for the GTK3 theme and gtkrc file for GTK2 theme. Changing colors is not much difficult.

Ok that i have done but why don't other themes work in Unity-2d and they work perfectly in unity-3D

satya164, nice work. I don't know if it's me only, but it doesn't work properly here. When I have a window maximized, the buttons "close, minimize and maximize" don't appear on the left-top corner. I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 and Unity. I don't have graphic acceleration, so I can't use Gnome Shell. Is the issue common or it's happening just to me? Thanks. :)

I guess you are using Unity 2D?

Exactly, Unity 2D. So, that's the problem? Isn't the theme compatible with Unity 2D? (Sorry, I'm a newbie on Linux.) :) Thanks.
