HEY! Who Turned out the lights?... We did! From the Creators of the Ambiance Colors Suite Theme, Comes... Ambiance Blackout Colors, A totally new, fully dark version of the Ambiance Theme. Ambiance Blackout brings you a fully dark version of Ambiance.
However we don't go crazy with making everything "Too Dark" the theme was designed to be a calm beautiful shade of Dark Grey that is still highly visible and not too dark. We spent lots of time crafting and perfecting things so the theme could be highy usable and buttons and all elements highly visible and clear.
This theme inherits our legacy of Ambiance Colors, It comes in 12 Diffrent Colors. And with Full and tested XFCE & LXDE & MATE Suppport!
Please keep in mind dark themes are historically hard to do, because of the fact most apps and GTK its self really assume you will be using a light theme. And makes things unreadable at times, We have worked to fix most of this but in some cases we simply can't do anything or something needs to be done to the application manually.
This is our first release so we welcome all bug reports and suggestions, However please keep in mind dark themes are a pain to do and some things are out of our control, however we feel one like this needs to be done, We will do our best to address and fix issues But please note that we release on a point number basis, Incrementally with alot of things rolled into one update (We do not often release updates with 1 or 2 fixes simply because it is not feasible for are release cycle, When we release a update we have to update every color individually test everything for regressions etc, Have packages built update webpages etc.)
