Amber is a cool atmosphere Gtk / Gnome Shell theme

amber Gtk + 3, Gtk + 2 and Gnome Shell themes are inspired by Ubuntu‘s Ambiance theme.

The color used by Amber is slightly different from Ambiance, and there is no gradient in the application toolbar, while still reminiscent of the default Ubuntu theme (Ambiance was default before Ubuntu 18.10, when the default theme was changed to Yaru) Supports Gnome (Shell) and requires Gtk 3.22 or higher (Ubuntu 18.04 and higher / Fedora 28 or higher). Update: The theme now also supports Xfce (Xfwm4):Amber theme Xfce

Designed by Mattias (lassekongo83) and known for its exquisite Zuki theme, Amber is “almost done” and has some polish on the to-do list, or say on the repository page. On my Ubuntu 18.10 desktop (with Gtk 3.24 and Gnome Shell 3.30), the theme looks great, and I have been using it for about a week without any problems.Amber Gtk themeAmber gnomish shell theme

You will notice that the theme has its own Dash to Dock (and Dash to Panel) running indicator style-the line to the left of the running application. Ubuntu uses the branch from Dash to Dock, and it is not allowed to disable the default running indicator, so you will get the Amber theme running indicator and the indicator used by the Ubuntu Dock extension.
One way to solve this problem is to install the original Dash to the pier And disable it, then use the Dconf editor (org / gnome / shell / extensions / dash-to-dock / running-indicator-style)-Changing its settings will affect not only the original Dash of the Dock, but also the Ubuntu Dock. Another method is to delete or disable Ubuntu Dock and use the original Dash to Dock or Dash to Panel, which is more custom operation. However, this is just a little trouble. Update: It is now believed that this topic is no longer considered to be incomplete.
