Hi Thank you for this app ! It's better than my method (use terminal and write cmd ^^ ) I have one question : Can i create an other folder than .ambience into Picture or is necessary to do it ?

Exemple : home/nemo/Ambience ?

=) thank you to past my wallpaper link ^^

Wallpapers - it's your credit ;);
I created hidden directory for ambiences, because I don't want to see them in Gallery->Photos. It's like working area only.. :)
Also now I know how to create ambiences with custom sounds :P The next update will include example with sounds...

KiriKrush's picture

With your my-exemple-sounds in gallery i don't have your sound when i put ambience in favorite =s It doesn't work for me =(

Schturman's picture

You need pull down and choose "set ambience". Also when you apply this ambiance from my app, it put it to favorite automatically and you can just swipe left-right or vise versa and press on this ambience. I tested on my device and it yes change sounds.

Hi! I already followed your detailed instructions and edited the ambience myself. I took red bit brighter than yours: "highlightColor - #FF0000" and "secondaryHighlightColor - #FF000099". I really like the result.  Thanks again! :)

good ;)

Here is a Redsquare2 ambience. Extract from zip to /home/nemo/Pictures/.ambience and apply from Ambience copier. Look if you like this red option ;)

Silwer's picture

Great app! I really like the wallpaper with black cubes. However, in my opinion current blue menu color is not looking good. Could you make another ambiance using the same picture but menus in red matching the bright red on the image?

Schturman's picture

I can do it, but you can do it easily by youself. 2 methods:
* If this ambience active now, switch to another one.
* Use Filetug Root app and navigate to:
* Open file "redsquare.ambience", pull down and choose "edit as text"
* Edit colors to which you want, pull down and choose "Save"
* Open terminal and run this 2 command as root:
killall jolla-gallery
systemctl-user restart ambienced.service
* Go to gallery and apply your ambience to see the result.

* If this ambience active now, switch to another one.
* Copy folder /usr/share/ambience/redsquare to /home/nemo/Pictures/.ambience
* Navigate here with Filetug (normal) app
* Edit colors in "redsquare.ambience" file
* Start Ambience copier and choose your edited theme
* Go to gallery and apply your ambience to see the result.
