Use with compiz-fusion for window and panel shadows.

Wallpaper is BASE - [link]



- Minor fix to the panelbutton.

- Decreased the metacity-borders to 0px for a more minimalistic look. If you want to resize your windows x-pos, the easiest way is to alt+middleclick.

If you don't have a 3rd mousebutton you can edit 2 simple lines in the metacity-theme-1.xml file.

Change the value to 3 here:
distance name="left_width" value="0"
distance name="right_width" value="0"

- Decreased the width between the captionbuttons.

Looks great! I'd leave out the flourish though, it doesn't match the architectural look. Also, the 1-2px gradient on either side of the title bar offsets the rest of the window, so it gives an illusion of being skinnier than the rest of the window. Threw me off a little bit at first, if you're going to do the gradient, I'd say either do just 1-2px on the top or bottom, not both, and definitely not either side of the title bar. I absolutely love the color combo going on in this though.

wtf is that...
SpankiFlip Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2010
I know I'm a noob and all...
but how the heck do you apply this theme?!
demios Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2011
System > Preferences > Appearance
"Theme" tab

drag and drop the (uncompressed) folder containing the theme into the interface
if you get a "Theme correctly installed" message - well, there ya go.

I thought I'd let you know that this has become my must-have window border since last March.

I really like where you're going with the controls, but I found them not clear enough when they need to be, especially the scroll bars. Instead I've been using the controls provided with Azel [link]

you can resize windows by holding the Alt key and the middle mousebutton. you are much faster with this technique then grabbing the border.

very cool style man=)
sakurakira Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2008
Wow... are you going to release a complimentary windows version as well, or do I have to go mod? :D

Btw, you can usually get around the window border issue for themes like this if you just have 1 or 2 px left and right frames that are the same color as the window. It solves the appearance issue to get it looking like you want, and keep the integrity of the window frame intact. Ruler AGV 2 is such an example.
lassekongo83 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2008
Not sure if I'm going to port it to Windows too. Maybe. :p

Hmm. I guess I could create a smaller transparent border. Resizing windows are still pretty hard though when you only have 1px to grip.
Nevezen Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2008
Well, 2 px transparent should work no? If you dont use anything to give shadow effect ateast. Im not sure about that, so Id appreciate if you could let me know :) Wanna make some changes to a style Im using
Nevezen Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2008
Oops, atleast*
