Metacity Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on


This is the Ubuntu 11.10 Ambiance theme, but tweaked. Te original theme is a really good one, but there are some things that I did not like, so ...

Changes to the original theme:
1. Added dark panel with steelblue color in Nautilus
2. Changed the selection color in the OS to be blue.
3. Window titles were moved to the right of the window.
4. Changed window borders to 4 px and added rounded corners

Installing the theme:

1. Download and unpack the downloaded .tar.gz archive to your home .themes folder
-if there is not such folder create it
2. Use Myunity, gnome tweak tool, ubuntutweak or whatever app suits you to load the theme
4. readame and wallpaper files included in archive
3. Enjoy and comment if you like it ;)

The theme will not work correctly in 12.04. I will upload another one especially for 12.04.
And off course if you like what I have done with it you can always donate ;)

Metacity was the default window manager used by the GNOME 2 desktop environment until it was replaced by Mutter in GNOME 3.  Wikipedia
