linux default iconAmbiance Cold Publisher's description

Ambiance cold blue theme

Ambiance Cold is a colder blue version of the new Ubuntu theme Ambiance. Just uncompress package into ~/.themes.

Also added namebar theme. Just place the whole compressed package into ~/.namebar/themes.

If you wish to keep up to date with any changes I make to this theme, please checkout my Launchpad bzr branch:


If you're looking for a nice monochrome icon theme, we recommend using LaGaDesk-BlackWhite-III:



The Metacity portion of this theme is based on Ubuntu Lucid's new organization of the button layout. Unlike traditional Gnome defaults, the Metacity theme's design requires the buttons to be in the order of maximize,minimize,close. To edit the gconf entry to my ideal layout, enter this command:

gconftool -s --type string /apps/metacity/general/button_layout "menu:maximize,minimize,close"

If you want to return to the traditional Gnome layout, enter this command:

gconftool -s --type string /apps/metacity/general/button_layout "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

About GNOME:

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.

GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.

The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
