Ambiance & Radiance Colors Suite is back for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS! Enjoy the Ubuntu Themes in 9 Beautiful New Colors! Thease colors are hand picked and refined so they pop. Now including brown!
Xfce , LXDE and Openbox now work out of the box with 14.04 version of the theme no more seperate versions.

Colors is back! after a 2 year hiatus. Available on 14.04 launch day!

  So where have you been for the last 2 years?

We have been busy with alot of life stuff, But we got a brief Vacation and decided to go tottally crazy and build and release the theme, it took nearly 12 Hours for 2 days straight. But it was fun and rewarding. Something really out of the normal and fun. It was also very draining and tiring. Don't get us wrong, we had a few protos kicking around for a few weeks but we decided 2 Days before release "screw it" lets make this happen. This is a LTS and we get pumped up.

 We have become very accustom to themes and how they work and we have a very straight forward testing procedure and know what to do and what to look for, so rest assured we test almost every step of the way and there are no major bugs that we have control over.

 So are you going to do this next release too?

 We can't make any promises yet but we would like to, however we would start alot further ahead of time next time :)

 We will be wrineing a blog post showing the process we go through to do the colors themes, It will serve in helping people understand how it is done and how we do it. And how it's not super easy as it looks. the major issue is there is NO automation, we and many others have written scripts but they have not been able to do what needs to be done yet, however we have not given up and we thank all those who have helped.

 We want to personally apologize to all those who have contacted us in the past mouths and not received a response reporting about the theme not working on 12.10, 13.04, 13.10. We would contact you but it has been so long I don't think it would be relevant or wanted.

We have been away, but we hope this release for 14.04 speaks for it's self and shows we care about and appreciate our users. :)

 Thank you for using our themes

More to come!
Hint: Linux Mint Colors?



  1. Really some nice themes. I really like them, however I don't understand why the Window buttons have to be grey and I hope you'll consider changing this a make a Ambience-grey for people that like grey window buttons :)

    1. Thanks for the comment. We will be adding colored window buttons back soon I hope. Just trying to get the colors right is all. I hope to get them done soon.
