My upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 went smooth without any issues. But after a reboot I found the new UI uncomfortable to use, it felt as if it had lost its magic touch.
I was able to fix the launcher bar by installing window dodge behavior from webupd8. Then I noticed the right-click context menu having a white background. It jus dint work for me I needed the dark interface back.
So I looked for a fix on various forums and websites and found this github repo which had a modified version of the Ambiance theme that changes the right click menu to a dark background.
And as a bonus I also found this website which had a modified version of the Ambiance theme for changing the default nautilus sidebar to a dark background.
I really liked both these features and tried combining them both in a single theme. And so by using both the themes I was able to achieve a perfect blend of the Dark Ambiance theme.
To install Dark Ambiance theme on Ubuntu 12.04
- Download this file and extract it to home/username/.themes
- Use ubuntu tweak tool or the My-unity tool to change the theme.
Note: You may have to logout or restart the system to see changes.
