- Short -
Add the buttons (right side or left side) SHADE/STICK/ABOVE in the original theme of Ubuntu "Ambiance"

- Full -
-Ubuntu metacity theme "Ambiance" dont support anymore since long time metacity V2 new buttons fonctions shade/stick/above (like a lot of themes), and now they stoped to support the V2 at all (no more metacity-theme-2.xml file !).
-Leo_Zappa done a version of "Ambiance" compatible with metacity V2.
-I just created PNG files to have a normal use of SHADE/STICK/ABOVE and adaped te code to use them.

- Install -
I done this for Ubuntu 14.10 (gnome-classic compiz session), but it can work with other comfig (or not).

# Uncompress the folder and put it in

You must now have:


with all the files inside.

# Execute this command to use the theme:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "AmbiancePlus"

- Configuration -

# Reconfigure the buttons of the windows (they are above,maximize,menu,minimize,shade,spacer,stick,:) like you want, exemple:

Buttons at the left side

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,maximize,minimize,shade,stick,above:'

Buttons at the right side

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ':above,stick,shade,minimize,maximize,close'

NOTE (compiz): You can remove "shade" button (or not) and use the mouse wheel on the tittle of the window to shade/unshade it, with this command:

gsettings set org.compiz.gwd mouse-wheel-action shade

- Uninstall -

#Load back the Ubuntu original Ambiance theme with the command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "Ambiance"

#Delete the folder


For any question, update ... feel free to contact me, you'r welcome.


- V14.10 -
The theme is done to work in Ubuntu 14.10 Gnome-classic Compiz session.

Original Licence from "Ambiance" theme from Ubuntu.
