An attractive GTK+2/3 and Metacity theme, created for and recommended to be used with FS Icons Ubuntu as part of the LumiNight desktop theme suite.

Salience is a GTK+2/3 and Metacity theme based on the Selene theme by Tista ( ). It was created for and recommended to be used with FS Icons Ubuntu ( ), and is also part of the LumiNight theme suite project.

Salience proposes to be similar to Ubuntu's Light themes, but with its own way of approaching the style and adding its own improvements. It aims for consistency, clarity, and having an attractive, bold appearance while remaining simple and pleasing to look at, and it should visually fit in with both Ubuntu and FS Icons Ubuntu.

The theme will have a few different subthemes that can be selected between, which will include:
* An Ambiance-like subtheme
* A Radiance-like subtheme
* All-dark subthemes

Each subtheme will have both a normal (orange) variant and a Sky (blue) variant to match the variants offered by FS Icons Ubuntu.

To install development builds, run the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:salience-team/salience-devel-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install salience-theme
