 performance

hi, after change to your theme my system runs a bit slowly, open "system monitor" i saw xorg using 30% of CPU (viewing all processes), comparing with Industrial theme falls down to 9%. My system is a P4 1.7, 256 RAM, TNT2 M64 32 VRAM (using nvidia drivers). Some other "stylish" themes cause this CPU usage too. There is someting which can change this behavior? Best regards!!!

You could try commenting out line 26 in the gtkrc, it should read " bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "brushed.png" " This doesn't really do much for the theme, just slows your box down. Just erase the line altogether.

Some people have reported that turning off font anti-aliasing improves performance a lot... but then your fonts will look like crap.

Otherwise... get more RAM and/or a new video card ;) You can get memory so cheap these days...

Ok, dude! Yes, i using anti-aliasing feature off, not so bad with font size 8 (windows-like) great job and don't stop (by the way, i am due to stop to annoyng you :^> )!!! An gtk2-engine (using Cairo) could help something ???

Looking good here. I like the graphics used, though they seem to make it rather slower than other themes.

Menu and other colours seem to be off slightly, which are probably due to it being unfinished.

 Really nice.

It is really cool and nice, but the only problem is that I don't like some colours so much:
1) On the screenshot menu background is white or something like that and it is really cool, but with the default package it is gray as backgrounds everywhere with this theme. It would be cool if it is like on the screenshot. It would be cool if all menus had that white like background
2) Secondly I don't like the overall gray backgrounds of windows (I mean what is behind toolbar icons, statusbar and so on). It is a bit too foggy/bright or something and maybe even too dark. My eyes doesn't like it. I don't know what would be better, but something more clean and not so contrasty. Something near white, not so bright and foggy maybe.

That's my opinion at the moment after trying this theme.

Really cool otherwise. I really like the panel background and button hover effects.

OK, actually the gray is not bad, but even nice. Everything is quite cool. Just the brightness (!). Maybe my eyes are too sensitive at the moment.

Maybe just more colour themes ... and that white bacground to menus in some themes ... and less brightness in some themes ...

:)

Oh, I already like it now alreay. I was too used to the Clearlooks theme I used before I think, but more themes (not only different colours as red, blue, brown and so on, but also themes that has elemements with different variations - lighter gray, white instead of gray etc.) would be cool.

Now I don't like the black line below and on the right of the panel. A screenshot of it:

It just doesn't seem so smooth and beautiful...

Thank you very much for this theme! :D

Thanks. There is absolutely no reason why the background to your menus should look different than the screenshot... I think something is b0rked with your system. Try running "rm -r ~/.gtk*" to clear your gtk configuration, then set your theme again. Let me know if that works.

As far as the panel bug goes, I get that too; it happens when you have the "hide buttons" enabled. An easy fix is to go into the panel-properties->background tab, then instead of using "None (use system theme), use "Background Image", and point it to the panel_background.png in the /Water_Vapor/gtk-2.0/ folder. Hopefully I'll figure out a better way to do this soon.

The panel tip worked perfectly, thanks.

Removing those files didn't help. It looks like this (your screenshot is opened in the browser in the background):

In Firefox, Azureus it works like on your screenshot, but in most gnome applications it is like on my screenshot.

I use Fedora Core 4.

I really like your theme now. I just wasn't used to it earlier. :)

Actually it doesn't work with Azureus too (any more), but only with mozilla products.

I made a research by google and found out (noticed at last) that the default bg_pixmap[NORMAL] takes over the menu background. I made a 10x10 pixels white .png image, copied it to this theme's gtk-2.0 folder and added the line

bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "menu_bg.png"

to the menu section. So it looks like this:
...
style "wv-menu"
{
bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "menu_bg.png"
ythickness=3
xthickness=5

engine "pixmap"
...


This hack works nicely. COOL!

 Improvement

Hi,

since I complained about scrollbars last time, let me say one thing: The new version looks definately better than the old scrollbars. They fit much better in your theme.
However I noticed a small glitch with scrollbars inside tabs. The colour around the stepper arrows is too light.

You seem to have a high end computer... gtkperf -a with your theme takes 88.76 sec on my 850mhz PIII Laptop with 576 MB RAM, but only 8 MB graphic memory...

Well.. yeah. I do a lot of audio and graphics processing, so I basically built this computer to kick ass.

This box is an amd64 3500+ 2.2 Ghz, 1 gb ram, nvidia 5200 w/ 128 mb. Pretty powerful computer, but relatively weak video card. Running a highly tweaked amd64 Ubuntu Breezy.

It's damn fast. People who say 64-bit computing isn't worth the trouble must not do much audio/video/graphics rendering.

The screenshot is a little misleading though. The first test (16.60s) was Water Vapor, and the second (9.12s) was a Clearlooks theme. I did that for comparison sake. I should have specified that somewhere.

Can you give me the full results of gtkperf so I can try and optimize the theme?
