Description:

Salience is the official GTK+2/3 and Metacity theme for the LumiNight theme suite.

Salience is currently an all-dark theme with some orange elements, which makes it fit in well with both Ubuntu and FS Icons Ubuntu. A variant which uses blue instead of orange, dubbed Salience Sky, is available from a Bazaar development branch on the project's Launchpad page. Other variants are also planned for the 2.0 release but are not yet available.

=== INSTALLATION ===

To install from the tarball, just extract the tarball and copy the Salience folder to /usr/share/themes/ or ~/.themes/ .

If you download the .deb, just install it through the Ubuntu Software Center or another package manager.

You can also install Salience from a development PPA maintained by kroq-gar78 using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:salience-team/salience-devel-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install salience-theme

However you install it, just set the GTK+ theme and the Window theme each to Salience using the theme configuration tool of your choice.

=== VERSION & COMPATIBILITY INFORMATION ===

This is version 1.0 of Salience.

Note that Salience 1.0 is only supported in GTK+3.4 (i.e. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or elementary OS Luna). GTK+3.6 support is planned for 2.0, which will add support for Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04; until then, it will look ugly if you try to use it there.

If you would like to help us port it over to GTK+3.6 for the 2.0 release, we would also welcome that. :)

=== OTHER INFORMATION ===

The LumiNight theme suite also includes FS Icons Ubuntu by Frank Souza, and it is recommended to be used with it. FS Icons Ubuntu is available here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/FS+Icons+Ubuntu?content=147048 For best results, we recommend that you use the "fs-icons-ubuntu-mono-dark" variant.

Salience also has a Google+ page you can follow here: http://gplus.to/Salience

The wallpaper used in the screenshots is from the FS Icons Ubuntu wallpaper pack, available here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/FS+Icons+Ubuntu+wallpaper+pack?content=151198

We look forward to hearing your feedback!

Is there any chance for an update to work with 13.10? This is one of the best themes ever and it should stay alive!

Hey guys, I really need help now. lol :(
Im not sure what happened, other than I installed the "zonColor" theme set, applied it to see how it looked, didnt like it, so I switched back to Salience, and now it's all white and grey with orange highlights. I can't get it back to normal for anything. I even just did a whole fresh install, and still it seems "broken". ANy ideas what I can do to fix this? Need a screenshot? thanks in advance

Hi! Sorry for the late reply. Have you tried logging out/in? The theme may not look right until you do that. Let us know if you still have a problem after trying that.

Heh, looks like the thread limit was reached. Anyway...

Ahmose, it looks like I can't confirm your problem on my machine. I just installed Salience using the deb provided here, switched the theme to it (after installing MyUnity), logged out and back in, and now it works fine.

Oh well, maybe it's just your machine :(

Yes! Thank you!
Very good indeed!
This is like the theme Ive been wanting an picturing in my head for the past couple/few years now lol . A few came close... But this is brilliant. Many thanks! <3

Oh, in case anyone wonders..
I first installed this via the .deb+software center. That didnt seem to install properly so I installed it manually afterwards, but I never removed the first install,so it must have conflicted. So the deb. didnt work great for me, but the manual install workd perfect. Love it. :)

I like the colour scheme.

The color scheme is meant to work well with FS Icons Ubuntu and Ubuntu itself, which is how we settled upon dark gray / orange. But it also goes well with other setups, too.

A blue variant named Salience Sky is also in the works (and actually ready for use), but we're not distributing it until the necessary packaging is taken care of. You're welcome to bzr branch it and use it, however.

it's the best theme i've ever seen but there are some problems...

i use Ubuntu 11.10 and i'm not so "geek", and i can't use this theme because when i use for example Google or Twitter, Youtube...i write using a white font in a white background!

Is there something i can do?

Hopefully i succeed explaining the issue! :)

Are you using Firefox? If so, it's a known issue with dark themes in general, which unfortunately we might not be able to do much about: https://bugs.launchpad.net/salience/+bug/1025902

Try Chrome(ium) or Midori and see if that fixes anything. They play more nicely with GTK+ than Firefox does.

I've been using it for a few months.
Not too dark.
Boxes enlightened by simple white lines.
The orange selected color is not as bright as it use to be (good).
In firefox and thunderbird, the scrollbar is a bit thin for me.
Great work!

Thanks for the feedback! We decided to keep the thin scrollbars in Firefox and Thunderbird for visual consistency with the overlay scrollbars used elsewhere in Ubuntu. It was thought that the prevalence of alternative scrolling methods like scrollwheels made wider scrollbars unnecessary. We may re-evaluate this in future versions, however. We are glad you are enjoying our theme!

Yes. The lack of overlay scollbar in Mozilla is Mozilla's problem.

I should have added that IMO salience has the visual attributes of flat themes without being completely flat, which is great. It has the right amount of salience :)
