Standard Unity theme, but with different Ubuntu colors
AmbianceDF is a classic theme for Ubuntu Unity desktop environment. I found the standard Ambiance theme really clean and usable, but little old. The colors of the standard Ubuntu theme have little tired me, so I decided to refresh the look of Ambiance standard theme. For this, AmbianceDF was born.
AmbianceDF provides a set of Ubuntu common colors, so you can remain on a classic Unity theme but with more modern Ubuntu tints. I choose the value for colors from the official Ubuntu Design Colour palette resource.
