I have messed up my gtk-color-scheme for ambiance. Could anybody please give me the standard gtk-color-scheme of ambiance?

I have tried to Google for it, but couldn't find it.

It is the first line (or lines) in: /usr/share/themes/ambiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Here you go! The original unotuched gtkrc of an Ubuntu 12.04.

Another way to set things back the way they were, at least for Ambiance and Radiance, is to run:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall light-themes

This will simply restore the Ambiance and Radiance themes to the version that is in the repos.

Also, for the future, it may be better to copy over whichever theme you plan to modify to the ~/.themes hidden subfolder in your home folder. Then, do whatever you want there. (If ~/.themes doesn't exist, just create it.) The advantage is that you have the original as a backup and don't need sudo to edit any files in ~/.themes.

Edit: Thanks to Tachyons for correcting the code to include --reinstall.
