Ordinary Metacity

Downloads:  16014
Submitted:  Jul 25 2010
Updated:  Jul 28 2010


This Metacity theme is heavily inspired by Chromium, Bespin and Oxygen.

This is essentially a port of my original Emerald theme. Since metacity draws the frames a bit differently than emerald there are some minor differences.

This is still a work in progress. And I'll try to iron out all the bugs/glitches when I have the time.

Currently the window icon will not scale any larger than 16 pixels. I locked it at that size since on my trial systems the icon vanishes once it grows larger than 16 pixels. But it does work if I force it to a locked larger size like 22 pixels, I do not know how to work around this o_O.

Feel free to add any suggestions and requests.

What's included?
Ordinary Colors - Picks up whatever GTK color there is. Uses #d8d8d8 as window color.

Metacity theme for Dust Sand

Future plans
Add border framestyle.

Try converting entire theme into SVG for nicer size scaling.

Add a few more theme variations, Shiki-Colors, Ambiance, etc...

The default color themes work best when the window color is set to "#d8d8d8".

All the other themes should work with respective recommended GTK theme. Meaning that Ordinary Dust Sand works best when used with the GTK theme Dust Sand.

Dust theme by Rico Sta. Cruz, Kido Mariano, and James Schriver.

Elementary gtk theme by DanRabbit


Added scalable titlebar, everything scales with title text size.

Added Ordinary Colors Theme that picks up frame color from currently active GTK theme. Still uses window color #d8d8dd8.

Reworked Ordinary Dust Sand that is scalable now.

Removed Ordinary Elementary since Ordinary Colors can match that theme quite easily.

Fixed theme breakage and reuploaded it.

 custom button positions

Excellent themes but don't work well with custom button positions.
I tend to have my buttons on the left (or close on left and min/max on right) and it messes up the themes.

Thanks for this great theme! Elegant, simple, original. Custom button position would be appreciated: I used max,min,close all on the right side. Eagerly waiting for any update.

Just made a matching AWN theme, if anyone is interested just drop a line.
Here is a screenshot (vertical AWN dock on the left):

Thanks in advance!
