Metacity Theme

The idea behind the theme is to make fit of window buttons to Clearlooks GTK theme.

IMHO, Clearlooks/Clearlooks2 metacity theme's buttons look alien to Clearlooks GTK theme. Clearlooks buttons look flat. Clearlooks2 is over-shiny, not matching to GTK theme. So that's why this theme appeared.

I also believe the theme does not bloat desktop with SELECTED color stripe (on focused window top).

INSTALL: The package contains two version of the theme - one with rounded window borders and one with squared. To correctly install both of them, extract archive content to ~/.themes folder.

12 Feb:
- Made window corner's gradient connections more smooth.
- Better vertical centering of title.

08 Feb:
- Revisited shape of utility window, thanks 'bvc' for pointing me. Now it's also rounded; changed buttons aspect; increased font size.

07 Feb:
- Back to roots. Removed highlight with SELECTED color of focused window. I think bold window header font vs. shaded one would be enough to distinguish focuced window.

05 Feb:
- Changed button labels style to more traditional. Better for high resolution monitors.
- Fixed button shape in non-even areas (height or/and width).
- screenshot #2

04 Feb:
- Fixed shadows on buttons top.
- Fixed button rendering in small areas.
- Better button shape in big areas (Large toolbar font).

02 Feb:
- Reworked focused window border. Now it looks like focused text field border.
- Added missed 3d effect on maximized wingow borders.

31 Jan:
*Done under Sparrk influence* :)
- Fought 'plain grey', added 3d effects to border adges.
- Leaved alone 'insensitive look' for unfocused buttons. So things should be 100% consistent now.
- Added tiny border with SELECTED color around focused window. To overweight loss of such a nice but alien insensitive buttons.

30 Jan: Added version with squared window borders.

This is a great theme. I like blending the title bar to rest of window. But I also loved the color strip around selected window.. Is there any chance of getting a version with that too?

 nice gradients!

Just now, for the first time, gimp/zoomed in on this theme. Just wanted to compliment your smoothing out and gradient work on the borders and corners. I've been working on a metacity theme that does that, and I thought I was the first. Nice to see someone else doing it!

 Insensitive Buttons

Could you make the buttons look insensitive when the window isn't in front? That would complete the effect, I think.
