I've been a fan of the Water Vapor GTK theme. Now I have something to make Metacity look nice too.

Maybe one day there'll be an icon set as well.

 application icon?

Is there an easy way to hack this to use the application icon for the window menu (on the left)?

I know this theme is made to look great (and it does), but I just want to point out it is a real ressource hog currently. It is not even comparable with clearlooks or Glossy P, it brings my 2.4ghz+1gb ram computer to 1 second delay for switching tabs and workspaces... Otherwise, it is a very sweet-looking theme!

Hmm. The Pixmap theme engine is pretty limited. It's slower than others, it renders insensitive icons in a very ugly way, and it is very stifling for a designer. Easy to use but restrictive.

Anyway, WV should perform just as well or better than Glossy P. If anything, the file sizes are smaller. I get perfect performance, but I'm on a sick box. It even runs decently on my old PIII 800 though...

Try #commenting out line 26 of the gtkrc, "bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "brushed.png" and let me know if that helps.

Also I'd recommend upgrading to gnome 2.12 if you haven't already-- there is a huge performance increase.

Is there a port of this theme to XFCE4?

no.. I will port it when I finish it. Right now it's slow, buggy, and not nearly as nice looking as I'd like it to be. Stay tuned!
