Every ubuntu releases use an adjective and an animal (e.g., "Dapper Drake", "Intrepid Ibex", "Jaunty Jackalope", "Karmic Koala", "Lucid Lynx").
So Maverick is the adjective and Meerkat ( is the animal.

It's explained on the Ubuntu wikipedia page, in the Release part (

I have some problems with your theme :
Your folder theme is named "AmbiancedRefined" instead of "AmbianceRefined"
And your theme is named "Ambiance" instead of "AmbianceRefined" and point to Ambiance controls and borders instead of yours.

It's a new theme so it has to have its own name I think.

In your index.theme, you should replace 3 of lines by :
- Name=Ambiance Refined
- GtkTheme=AmbianceRefined
- MetacityTheme=AmbianceRefined

And in your metacity-theme-1.xml file :

Then, I think it will be ok :)

I resolved the problem by adding the line "ButtonLayout=close,minimize,maximize:" (without quotes) at the end of the index.theme file.

It might be usefull to other ubuntu users. - Jun 04 2010
Really sorry if you don't understand what I said, I'm french.

Themes doesn't need "Ubuntu Tweak" to change button position, it's an option to write in the index.theme.

And SmartRadiance buttons haven't "ugly" borders, I said there are like your Smart-Light theme (no border, no orange background), do you mean your Smart-Light buttons have ugly borders ?

After the install of your SmartRadiance theme on my PC, I compared the installed theme and your screenshot :
- buttons aren't the same (no border, no orange background)
- buttons aren't on the left

I only wanted to know why, and if it was a problem on my PC or in the theme archive.
Really sorry for trying to help.

Am I a linux beginner...? Strange question... Why ? Is your theme only designed for experimented users ?

But, yes, I am probably a linux beginner, under linux for 4 years, developper for 10 years and which know how simply and properly install a theme under Gnome (and simply doesn't mean "drag & drop the folder" or manual copy to an hidden theme folder...).

Again, really sorry, I think I will follow your the second advice of your description and make my own theme instead of trying to help some kid.

Hello :)

First, good job for the tar.gz :p

Second, I really like the Smart Radiance screenshot, but it seems that the theme in the archive isn't the same : for me, buttons are on the right (instead of the left in the screenshot) and they are different, mostly like the Smart-Light theme. Moreover, the little screenshot displayed in the Appearance window isn't the same as your big screenshot, but looks exactly the same as the installed theme :'( - Jun 04 2010
Thank you ! :)

Good job by the way ;) - Jun 03 2010
Oh, mistake, I'm talking about a gnome bug XD

Sorry ;) - Jun 03 2010
Your theme change the top button position (close, minimize, ...).

On my system there were on the left, then after installing your theme, there are on the right !!

It would be better to let the button at their place : some would like left, other right, so please, don't change it... - Jun 03 2010

Please, replace the SmartDark (or Smart_GTK) folder by a tar.gz file (or tar.bz2, but no zip).

Then, users will be able to install it by the following method :
- uncompress the zip archive
- drag & drop the tar.gz archive in the Appearance window.

It would be easier...
We have a graphical application to install themes, so let us use it ;) - Jun 03 2010
1. Uncompress the .zip archive
2. Select the "SmartDark" (or "Smart_GTK") folder (which contains a gtk-2.0 folder, a metacity folder and an index.theme file)
3. Compress this SmartDark folder to the archive format "tar.gz" to obtain, for example, a "SmartDark.tar.gz" file (zip format doesn't work)
4. Drag this tar.gz archive into the Appearance window
5. Select the new Smart theme

I use the standard Ubuntu Radiance icon theme, and it works fine for me.

I used the following method :
1. Uncompress the zip archive
2. Copy the 16x16 and 24x24 folders in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ (needs root privileges)
3. Open a terminal and refresh the icon cache with root privileges : sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/
4. Quit and reopen Empathy - Jun 03 2010

Nov 03 2011 existed but not at the good place.

I used a bad kde-prefix :
I wrote ./configure --prefix=/usr/bin/kde or ./configure --prefix=/usr/lib/kde3 instead of ./configure --prefix=/usr

Now it works perfectly :D

Thank you very much, for your help and for your work :) - May 03 2006
Sorry if I don't write english very well : I'm french.

I use GTK 2.8.6 and Gimp 2.2.8.
I only started the gimp from a konsole window, and when gimp start, there is the following lines in Konsole :
Could not access socket, /tmp/ksocket-farliec/kdialogd-1

:( - May 02 2006
./configure --prefix=/usr/bin/kde OK
make OK (if libgtk-2.0-dev is installed)
make install OK

After a KDE restart :
/usr/local/bin/ gimp OK (gimp start)

Menu File >> Open : The Dialog Box is the same as before (GTK Dialog Box) and it's the same thing for the "Save as" Dialog Box.

Then, impossible to open a file : no action
Impossible to Cancel (and close the dialog box) : Errors in Konsole until I close Gimp :
(gimp:20959): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_event: assertion `WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' failed

It's the same thing after a computer restart. - May 01 2006
