Ambiance & Radiance Themes for Xfce/Open is a GTK theme, a complete port of Ambiance & Radiance to Xfce and Openbox with native window decorations and all.

Now you can easily have the look and feel and unified desktop experience of the Ambiance/Radiance themes (Default Ubuntu Themes) on your XFCE and Openbox desktops.

(Based on the official Ambiance & Radiance themes, This is not however by the official Ambiance/Radiance team. but we made as few changes as possible.

Includes both: Ambiance & Radiance GTK2&3 Widget and Window border themes.

* Build to work with GTK3! Other Xfce or LXDE themes that don't support GTK3 yet look like Win95(TM) when running gtk3 apps! This theme won't do that!

* Installs as a separate theme from the main Ambiance/Radiance, for use with XFCE/Openbox only. (please use official Ambiance/Radiance for Gnome/Unity)

* Includes Ambiance/Radiance Window Borders for Xfce and Openbox! (Xfwm4,Openbox)

This theme Aims to be a complete and accurate port of the Ambiance/Radiance Themes for XFCE/Openbox. We have made great strides to make sure it is accurate and complete. It uses the offical Ambiance/Radiance code modified only sligtly to work on XFCE/Openbox desktops. And *ports of* the official window borders for XFCE (XFWM4) and LXDE (Openbox) in both Ambiance/Radiance flavors. We have updated and made small fixes to the window border themes as well as totally implemented the Radiance on top of XFCE (XFWM4) and LXDE (Openbox) (Not previously available). You will find this theme is probably the most complete package out there to easily have the unified experience of Ambiance/Radiance on the LXDE and Openbox since out of the box that theme doesn't really support such desktops.

About GNOME:

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.

GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.

The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
